Israel apologist form

I saw this fantastic mock template on reddit. It pretty much summarizes 99% of the arguments of all Israel apologist out there 🙂

Dear Sir or Madam,

You have made a post that dares to criticize Israel. As you know, this makes you an anti-semite.
I would like to point out the following facts that are relevant to the discussion:

[x] 6 million Jews died in the holocaust.
[x] You are an anti semite.
[ ] Israel made the desert bloom and we have beautiful beaches.
[ ] The Jews have been persecuted for thousands of years.
[x] All arabs want to push the Jews into the sea.
[ ] Israel is a shining example of democracy and ethnic discrimination does not exist.
[x] Suicide bombers are killing Israeli citizens and collective punishment will put a stop to this eventually.
[x] The IDF are showing remarkable restraint; They have the power to nuke the entire region but choose not to.
[ ] It is the fault of the Palestinians that they don’t rebuild infrastructure fast enough after we bomb it.
[x] Arafat walked out on camp David, proving that 100% of Palestinians want war, not peace.
[x] The Jews are God’s chosen people and this is the land that was promised to us by a book.
[x] It’s not white phosphorus, we were just dropping road flares!
[x] It is not a genocide until hundreds of thousands of Palestinians are killed and we aren’t even close to that yet.
[ ] 100% of Palestinians are terrorists.
[x] The Arabs drove the Jews from their homeland thousands of years ago so it is about time for some payback.
[x] Israel has killed fewer people than Iran or Iraq which means we are a peaceful state.
[x] Carpet bombing an entire country is a perfectly rational response to the kidnapping of a soldier.
[ ] It’s not a concentration camp, it’s a safety wall!

Therefore, your claim of [Israel dropping white phosphorus on a United Nations school] is false and we should continue to send money and military support to Israel.

Yours sincerely,

AIPAC

P.S. you are an anti-semite

This was provoked by the onslaught of nonsensical responses by Israeli apologists after somebody dared post this picture from Israel’s attack on an UNRWA school in Gaza during operation “Cast Lead”.

If you’re interested, I blogged about my reaction to the attack on this school when it happened here.

“Gaza not in a humanitarian crisis” ?!!

Let me start with this outrageous quote from US House Representative Michael Pence (Republican from Indiana) that he recently made on CNN:

Let’s be clear, there is not a humanitarian crisis in Gaza … the hospitals are fully stocked, the food markets are fully stocked!

WHAAA???? At first I was so shocked that I thought I must have misheard it. So I watched it again and again; nope that is what he said! Apparently Gaza is in top shape and we didn’t know it! Rep. Pence, I salute you (albeit, it is a one-finger salute).

Pence must have smashed all sorts of spin records. Gaza not in a humanitarian crisis?! Michael Pence, what have you been smoking? In what world do you live? Did you leave planet Earth for Pandora? Actually you know what, if you are so confident that what you say is true, I am willing to personally fund you to travel to Gaza with a camera crew and show us how we got it all wrong. Please Pence, enlighten us.

Here is a video of his CNN interview. Prepare to be dazzled!

Much has been said about Israel’s violent interception of the humanitarian aid flotilla headed to Gaza. Both sides have put forth their claims and counter claims. But the basic facts remain: Israel attacked non-military ships in international waters, Israel used lethal force against unarmed civilians (the activists attacked the Israeli commandos with sticks, rods, and chairs … but what do you expect when you drop commandos on a ship in the middle of night? a dance festival?!), and Israel killed 9 unarmed protesting civilians. After all was said and done, no weapons were found on-board any of the ships.

Funky Blade Superhero

Cross him and weep .. THIS is a super hero! None of those whimsical super-hero-wannabes.

Funky Blade Superhero

I don’t know what is the super power of these two (Nizar & KJ) .. are they really good in shopping ? 7aki Fadi’s hero isn’t even standing straight to project power. Her tiny ax and measly butterfly wings are no match for funky blade’s cool power! One swing of that sword and you are history baby! .. but not to worry, if you get your clothes dirty, I’m sure Nizar’s and KJ’s super heros know a fabulous store to buy replacements 😛

hehehe … i am having too much fun with this .. i really should back to work. Thanks KJ, Nizar, and 7aki for the link 😀
