It's a sad day when people use words they don't know the meaning of. In my thread about the pro-Israel sentiment on ATS, I pointed out how, rather
than looking at the facts, Israeli sympathizers will call you anti-Semite or pro-Islamic Jihad even when neither word, in it's true meaning, has any
validity in regards to what has been said.
Yet, people use these words anyway. Why? Because if we looked at the facts and didn't resort to childish name calling, the Israeli sympathizers would
either be forced to take their blinders off and admit they're wrong, or.....well, that's really the only other outcome, and that simply is too much
of a cost to bare for some.
In light of that, here is the definition of an anti-Semite for those obviously not blessed with Dictionary.com:
Anti-Semite: a person who discriminates against or is prejudiced or hostile toward Jews.
Questioning the Israeli government's actions does not equal discrimination or hostilities towards Jews. If you believe that it does, then you believe
the Tiananmen Square Massacre was justified. Hey, they were questioning the government - they're hostile!!!
Does questioning Barack Obama make you racist against black people? By the same token, does questioning George Bush make you racist against white
people? How ridiculous do you want me to get with these analogies?
The Israeli government lost sight long ago of it's duty to represent the Jewish faith and people. It took it's own course of domination, oppression,
fear, terrorism, and greed. By virtue of you calling anyone who questions the Israeli government an anti-Semite, you are indirectly claiming that the
Jewish faith and people support domination, oppression, fear, terrorism, and greed.
Is that what you are claiming? If not, stop using childish cop outs and focus on the topic at hand.
