  1. “Edgy” is not how you would describe a Jihadist site celebrating the murder of Jewish Israelis by exploding potatoes in a microwave.
    And, we hope this turns out to be just worrying, because it’s the best explanation we’ve heard for why Arik of all people would be so concerned about occupation.

  2. From the counterpuch article:
    “We believe that one primary, unstated motive for the determination of the government of the State of Israel to get the Jewish settlers of the Qatif (Katif) settlement block out of the Gaza Strip may be to keep them out of harm’s way when the Israeli government and military possibly trigger an intensified mass attack on the approximately one and a half million Palestinians in the Gaza Strip, of whom about half are 1948 Palestine refugees.”
    “The scenario could be similar to what has already happened in the past – a tactic that Ariel Sharon has used many times in his military career – i.e., utilizing provocation in order to launch massive attacks.”
    Ahh! Stop pulling out of my lands Zionist. You are provoking me with your leaving!

  3. Wow! These Counterpunch writers are even more shameless than I thought. How can one take a publication seriously after statements like this, ky?
    “We do not have the academic evidence to support our feeling, but given past behavior, ideological leanings and current media spin initiated by the Israeli government and military, we believe that the designs of the State of Israel are clear…[blah, blah, blah]”

  4. counterpunch and every single person who writes for it is pondscum, anti semitic, and anti western. citing it is exactly the same as citing mein kampf as authority. if you would really like to read modern hitler, and site him as an authority, your credibility will be judged accordingly.

  5. The Pappe piece kind of reminds me of when warnings circulated before the Iraq war warning that Israel was planning a massive transfer under the cover of war. Those warnings were popular amongst Israeli academia and the left at the time.
    Doubtless the army will respond to any upsurge in violence around the disengagement with great vigor.

  6. No sooner do we hear screaming about how anything but Mein Kampf is exactly the same as Mein Kampf comes the inevitable Sophie Portnoy finger-shaking about “credibility.” Because Jimmy Carter is Hitler, and Arafat is Hitler, and that sorry-looking dude with no chin running Syria is Hitler, and of course Saddam is Hitler Plus Stalin, and Oslo was Munich, and evicting an illegal squatter who takes massive subsidies for granted while destabilizing the world is the same as mass murder.

  7. “illegal squatters” = “destabilizing the world”. ahh, the universal explanation for everything (why didn’t einstein think of this) — the fucking jews did it. thank you hitler.

  8. Jerusalem Post interview with Arnon Soffer
    [Arnon Soffer is a Haifa U demographer, considered the “intellectual father” of the disengagement plan]
    Ruthie Blum: How will the region look the day after unilateral separation?
    Arnon Soffer: The Palestinians will bombard us with artillery fire–and we will have to retaliate. But at least the war will be at the fence–not in kindergartens in Tel Aviv and Haifa.
    RB: Will Israel be prepared to fight this war?
    AS: First of all, the fence is not built like the Berlin Wall. It’s a fence that we will be guarding on either side. Instead of entering Gaza, the way we did last week, we will tell the Palestinians that if a single missile is fired over the fence, we will fire 10 in response. And women and children will be killed, and houses will be destroyed. After the fifth such incident, Palestinian mothers won’t allow their husbands to shoot Kassams, because they will know what’s waiting for them.
    Second of all, when 2.5 million people live in a closed-off Gaza, it’s going to be a human catastrophe. Those people will become even bigger animals than they are today, with the aid of an insane fundamentalist Islam. The pressure at the border will be awful. It’s going to be a terrible war. So, if we want to remain alive, we will have to kill and kill and kill. All day, every day.

  9. So if the Palestinians attack us, they get killed. That’s news?
    Maybe, the problem isn’t that they’re getting killed. Maybe the problem is that they can’t seem to refrain from starting trouble they can’t handle.
    One day, maybe, the Arabs will decide to focus on building a civil society. That’s when we’ll have peace.
    But if they attack us, what choice do we have?

  10. ky, I do not have the academic evidence to support my feeling, but given past behavior, ideological leanings and current media spin, you are a ridiculous moron.

  11. The inevitable Sophie Portnoy finger-shaking about “credibility.”
    Erm, no — it’s the inevitable Avi finger-shaking. K&y is mistaking “Avi” for “everyone”. (Well, for the passive voice. A weaselly tense if I ever heard one.)
    It’s confusing out there.
