6. This article is ridiculous...
Edited on Mon Apr-04-11 04:56 AM by shira
America has its Glenn Becks and Michael Savages too.

The difference is that Beck and Savage are not mouthpieces for the government and they are roundly criticized and minimized as bigots/racists throughout America's media and free press. Same as Israel.

In Gaza and the WB, their extremist counterparts clearly represent government policy - there is no freedom of press to criticize such monsters - and mass murderers who act upon such incitement (imagine Beck and Savage now as a militant David Duke) are rewarded and celebrated as martyrs and heroes, and have sports stadiums, schools, and streets named after them.

Let's not pretend there's any moral equivalency going on here...
