It should not surprise me and yet it does! I am talking about the amount of vitriolic rhetoric being espoused on ATS regarding the Prime Minister of
Israel, Benjamen Netanyahu. The media has gone out of it's way to demonize this man which I would expect..they love the "drAAAAAma and bad news
drives ratings...However, some on ATS have really bought their story, hook, line and sinker!
I am all for free speech but when you refer to Netanyahu as "worse than Hitler" or a "terrorist" I say, PUT UP OR SHUT UP!
If he is worse than Hitler, prove it! If he is a blood thirsty terrorist, lets see the FACTS! I am so tired of the ignorance that runs rampant on
If you are pro Palestine, wonderful! The real question is, are you anti Israel?
I leave you this to ponder A speech from 2011 by Benjamen Netanyahu Prime Minister of Israel....Don't mind the date, it could have been penned,
yesterday....it is very relevant to what is taking place on the world stage today..
Israel has no better friend than America, and America has no better friend than Israel.
We stand together to defend democracy. We stand together to advance peace. We stand together to fight terrorism.
So today the Middle East stands at a fateful crossroads. And like all of you, I pray that the peoples of the region choose the path less
traveled, the path of liberty.
No one knows what this path consists of better than you. Nobody.
This path of liberty is not paved by elections alone. It’s paved when governments permit protests in town squares, when limits are placed on the
powers of rulers, when judges are beholden to laws and not men, and when human rights cannot be crushed by tribal loyalties or mob rule.
Israel has always embraced this path in a Middle East that has long rejected it. In a region where women are stoned, gays are hanged, Christians are
persecuted, Israel stands out. It is different.
Israel is not what is wrong with about the Middle East; Israel is what is right about the Middle East.
Israel fully supports the desire of Arab peoples in our region to live freely. We long for the day when Israel will be one of many real democracies in
the region -- in the Middle East.
The Bibi you love to hate:
The peace agreements between Israel and Egypt and Israel and Jordan are vital, but they’re not enough. We must
also find a way to forge a lasting peace with the Palestinians.
Two years ago, I publicly committed to a solution of two states for two peoples: a Palestinian state alongside a Jewish state.
I’m willing to make painful compromises to achieve this historic peace. As the leader of Israel it’s my responsibility to lead my people to
because I recognize that in a genuine peace, we’ll be required to give up parts of the ancestral Jewish homeland. And you have to
understand this: In Judea and Samaria, the Jewish people are not foreign occupiers.
The Palestinians share this small land with us. We seek a peace...
in which they’ll be neither Israel’s subjects nor its citizens. They should enjoy a national life of dignity as a free, viable and
independent people living in their own state
They should enjoy a prosperous economy where their creativity and initiative can flourish....
Here is the question I have for you, how many even know what this conflict is about? I bet many of you would say it is about the right for Palestine
to have it's own state...but that is NOT the conflict.
The conflict is not coming from Israel, they have agreed to live side by side with the Palestinians. The conflict comes from the side of the
Palestinians. The people or i should say the PA which is controlled by Hamas REFUSES to live next to a Jewish state.. So then which one is really
behaving like Hitler?
Please if I am wrong explain this to me....I am willing to hear both sides....
Thanks for your time,
