Why does Media Matters hate Israel?
Well, I don’t suppose we have learned anything from Tucson. “Blame the Right” is clearly the theme for 2011. Well, I am very curious how lizards are going to react to one of the favorite go-to sites for all things anti-FOX going all “Professor Stephen Walt and John Mearsheimer” on Israel.
When I read that someone is blaming the Israel lobby for something, my radar goes up. When someone says something like “The lobby and the ever-faithful Congress”, well I am sure of it.
Blaming Israel for what is happening in Egypt? Serious antisemitic. I don’t think even Iran and the UN have done that yet…
The regime that the Israeli government and its U.S. lobby have depended upon to enforce the status quo is going down. It is not clear when, but it’s going to be soon, much sooner than anyone ever anticipated. And you can be sure that any democratic government that takes Mubarak’s place is not going to play the role of America’s (let alone Israel’s) enforcer in the Middle East.
Hopefully, the Israeli-Egyptian peace treaty will survive — thousands of lives on both sides have been saved by President Carter’s Camp David Treaty — but there are no guarantees. Far from it.
Of course, no one would even be worried about the peace treaty if the Israelis had agreed to implement the critical second part of the Camp David Accords.
That was the part that would have ended the occupation. But the Israelis chose to ignore it and the lobby and the ever-faithful Congress blocked Carter’s efforts to push it through.
The lizards who were outraged by Beck comments on Soros… well here is Soros funded Media Matters saying it outright. Lizards should probably focus on what MJ Rosenberg at Media Matters is saying about all Jews. As should Talking Points Memo and anyone who supports them. Why TPM?
The same disgraceful column was posted at TPM without any indication that the column originally was written for and paid for by Media Matters.
