Jeffrey Goldberg on the Kerry “Apartheid” Fake Outrage

Kerry’s not the only one to use the “A” word

An excellent piece by Jeffrey Goldberg on John Kerry’s absurdly misrepresented “apartheid” comment: Is Israel an Apartheid State?

The problem is not inside Israel; the problem is on the West Bank. The settlers who entangle Israel in the lives of Palestinians believe that they are the vanguard of Zionism. In fact, they are the vanguard of binationalism. Their myopia will lead to the end of Israel as a democracy and as a haven for the Jewish people. The regime they help impose on Palestinians is cruel, unfair and unnecessary. Rather than label this regime in an incendiary fashion, I now prefer simply to describe its disagreeable qualities.

But if Kerry, following Barak’s lead, wants to warn about a possible apartheid future for Israel, I’m not going to condemn him as anti-Israel. Israeli leaders must open their minds to the possibility that he has their long-term interests at heart.

Clearly he’s just trying to bring about global sharia.

Repeating what I’ve written before, “Israel” is a magick word, for a magickal place, for many Americans, used in part for incantations.

As a few of us were mentioning last night…Goldberg is a trusted and real columnist/journalist. Good job. I wonder how many (like Barbra Boxer) read it and maybe feel just a little regret they jumped in before reading the whole statement.

And this whole thing about Kerry calling Israel an apartheid state is just sad. The fact that everyone seemed to have read only the tweet and ran with the limited and out of context wording as fact is even more sad.

As far as Ted Cruz…that man is becoming more and more scummy as he rolls. Hopefully before too long people will grow tired of his games and he will be ignored as a national candidate. Can’t speak for Texas though…so he may be around awhile. And even out of politics, I am afraid we will have to put up with him as he will become the male version of Sarah Palin.

One more thing…is twitter becoming the new version of screaming fire in a crowded public building? Sure does seem to light some fires prior to fuller facts coming out.

New Godzilla movie looks great, but the Disney remake of Star Wars is getting off to a shaky start - the entire expanded universe is to be considered non-canon, and as my friend said “a thousand shitty artists cried out at once”
