I linked to this blog entry earlier.
Check out the comment section. You’ll see where I make my stance clear on Israel. Well, it seems that one of Bill Quick’s commenters over there seems to believe that I am too dumb to know anything about Israel.
His comments remind me of some of the tripe that the anti-Semites at antiwar.com like to write. I have blogged about that in the past, on my old blog.
My position on Israel is quite clear; that is God’s land, promised to the Jews in the Bible. Palestine has no claim to that land at all. Period, end of story. Furthermore, I happen to believe that the prosperity of this Nation is directly tied to the treatment and support of Israel.
I admittedly have disdain for identity politics and unfortunately, some American Jews do partake in that practice. Furthermore, I reject Wilsonian foreign policy, because it is, I believe, a wrong- headed policy for the US to pursue.
However, my feeling about a particular foreign policy does not equate to anti-Israel bias, or anti-Jewish sentiment. To me; a Jew is a Jew, whether here or abroad. If you express disdain for one; you express it for all of them. Most of that anti-Jewish hatred comes from kooky sites like this one here.
To me, there are two types of libertarian; of the InstaPundit kind, which I respect and of the Lew Rockwell kind —- which I utterly despise.
Now, where Bill Quick fits into that mold, I have no idea. But, based upon what I saw in that comment section over there. I doubt very seriously that I will be commenting over there again.
There are just some things that I will not compromise on, and this is one of them. Open-mindedness be damned; I just will not budge on iota on this one. No way, no how.
