re: #166 Nimed

Look, whenever someone engages or advocates war or military aggression that I consider unnecessary, “blood-thirsty” is one of the epithets that comes to mind, as in “Attila was a blood-thirsty SOB.”

Do you want to ban the use of the term? This blood libel stuff is ridiculous.

Not at all ridiculous. The depictions of Israelis and Jews as blood thirsty each time they defend themselves are extremely common and widespread. Your being unaware of this does not make it untrue.

This one below is from the recent “peace” flotilla. Jews stabbing the ship with a bloody sword. Yet we know the Jews were attacked and savagely beaten. The idea is to paint the victims as aggressors.
