106. Maybe you don't realize it, but you were the one making the claim that Israel is in no way...

....liberal or progressive. You said that, not me. I'm challenging you to see whether you hold other countries to the same standard. First and foremost your own country. You chose USA_1 as your screen name for a reason. You're probably proud of the USA, and for very good reason. I am too.

However, it's obvious you have a double standard, as Israel is clearly more liberal/progressive than the USA is. And yet you cannot allow yourself to judge the USA using the same standards you use to judge Israel.

I'm merely calling you on what you wrote at the end of your first post in this thread.

Thus, contrary to the nonsense written by the OP, there is no liberal case for Israel. While everyone is entitled to their opinion, nothing in that racist, terrorist state reflects true liberalism nor can it be defended by way of progressive ideology.

Now that's demonstrably false, isn't it?

You know very well there's something liberal/progressive about the USA and that's why you're proud of your country. Israel, however, is arguably even more liberal/progressive although you won't admit it. Logically, if the USA is liberal/progressive in some way and Israel is even MORE liberal/progressive than the USA (which it is) then the drivel you wrote in that quote above is nothing but nonsense.
