bedlammessiah points out key flaws in Israel's behavior with this selection of quotes. The irony is revolting. With statements like that, is it any surprise the Arab world hates Israel? Is it any surprise that Israel has mandatory military service. The government is paranoid because they know everyone is out to get them, but don't think about why.

And to encourage you to read this (despite the overabundance of posts I've been making lately), I'll leave you with a quote:
“Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that. I want to tell you something very clear: Don’t worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it.” (Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, Oct. 3, 2001, to Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio.)
  • I commented to it.
  • not quite what it seems

    got this about the qoute

    Sharon's Alleged Quote about Jews Controlling America

    By Brian Carnell

    Monday, December 17, 2001

    Here's a quote from a column about Israel and the United States:


    What is the extent of that [Israeli] power? According to Israeli radio (Washington Report on Middle-Eastern Affairs, November 2001), Prime Minister Sharon recently reprimanded Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, saying, 'Every time we do something, you tell me Americans will do this and will do that. I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure, we the Jewish people control America, and Americans know it.' Last November, while in Chicago, Sharon declared, 'We have the might and we are right; the Arabs must listen.'

    Of course, there is much less than meets the eye here.

    For example, most readers might find it surprising -- despite the attributions -- that this alleged quote does not come from either Israeli radio nor does it come from The Washington Report on Middle-Eastern Affairs. Rather, it is contained in a press release from the Islamic Assocation for Palestine. That press release, dated October 3, 2001, was picked up and republished by the WRMEA.

    The Islamic Associaton for Palestine, meanwhile, is a front for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, and has a habit of a) voicing its support for the killing of Jews and b) publishing anti-Semitic materials.

    It is hardly a disinterested party in the conflict, and as such should not be relied upon to accurately translate and provide context to such a quote (which, to be frank, just fits the IAP's anti-Israeli agenda a bit too well).
