There is no subject more restricted nor more controlled in the United States than a critical discussion of Israel. Balanced argument is ignored while each word is parsed -- and condemned. It's strange that we are free to rant and rave and point out the war crimes of our own administration -- of all other administrations throughout the world -- but not those of Israel. The few who dare to question the damage Israel has wrought throughout the Middle East for decades are immediately labeled "anti-Semitic," and are in danger of losing their friends, jobs, their reputations and, if they persist, their country -- for America has zero tolerance for those who recognize Israel's brutality.

But you are antisemitic. You've always been antisemitic Stewy, that's never shut you up though.

You keep blowing through here dropping some eloquent copy/paste and then punctuating your plagiarism with some guttural reference to how lucky Hamlet is with white women. I don't think you've ever gotten the hang of metric conversion though because I have garden tools shorter than your Shakespearean ambition.

Make one realistic comment about Iran and we'll make a conversation of it.

They sit on one of the largest fossil fuel supplies in the world while ignoring their inability to feed their population. Tell me again why they need nuclear instead of exploiting the one resource they have in abundance.

Remember the real reason why Moammar Gadhafi is dead. He dared to propose and started creating an alternative currency to the world reserve U.S. Dollar. The lesson learned in Libya is now ready for teaching in Iran. Forget all the noise about going nuclear, the true message is that the banksters rule and nation states serve their ultimate masters.

SAME HASBARA SCRIPT

By now we all know from repeated experiences that Paid, Scripted and Full Time Hasbarats are trained to AVOID Honest debate!

"The Pro-Israel Propaganda Handbook"
HASBARA HANDBOOK
http://www.middle-east-info.org/take/wujshasb ...
"Guides for Activists"

".......to score points whilst avoiding debate."

The TRUTH doesn't need the Multi Billion Dollar, International Propaganda Industry run by Israel's Foreign Ministry or the demented and, otherwise unemployable "Liars for Hire" that sully the internet with ".... a prepared list of messages that the foreign ministry developed.”

The following consists of excerpts by an ethical Jew who decided to".........come out of the closet as a paid shill."

“Diary of an Israeli Shill”
http://www.veteranstoday.com/2012/10/12/diary...

“How the Masters of the Universe Infect the Internet”
“I am writing here to come out of the closet as a paid shill. For a little over six months, I was paid to spread disinformation and argue political points on the Internet.“

CONFESSIONS OF A HASBARAT:
“My task?“To support Israel and counter anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic posters.” Fine with me. I had no opinions one way or another about Israel, and who likes anti-Semites and Nazis? Not me, anyway. But I didn’t know too much about the topic.
“That’s OK,” she said.“You’ll pick it up as you go along. For the most part, at first, you will be doing what we call “meme-patrol.” This is pretty easy. Later if you show promise, we’ll train you for more complex arguments, where more in-depth knowledge is necessary.”
-------
“This section also contained a number of hints for de-railing conversations that went too far away from what we were attempting.
“These strategies included various forms of personal attacks, complaining to the forum moderators, smearing the characters of our opponents, using images and icons effectively, and even dragging the tone of the conversation down with sexual innuendo, links to pornography, or other such things.
-------
“It also had quite detailed info on the moderators and the most popular regged posters on each site: location (if known), personality type, topics of interest, background sketch, and even some notes on how to “push the psychological buttons” of different posters. Although I didn’t work for xxx, I did see they had a lot of info on your so-called “WATS” posters here (the ones with gold borders around their edges).“Focus on the popular posters,” my trainer told me.
----
“A lot of my job was de-railing and spamming threads that didn’t go our way, or making accusations of racism and anti-Semitism. Sometimes I had to simply lie and claim a poster said something or did something “in another thread” they really hadn’t said or done
-----
“I felt bad about this…but in the end I felt worse about the possibility of losing the first job I’d been able to get since losing my “real” job.” CONTINUED

So, "TRD" aka "Ass-fyr-Hyre" aka “ V.O.P.” aka “Eightball” aka "Faith" etc

Just as time has exposed your nasty, little Nazi Colony as a Repository for Genocidal "One / Chosen" Race", War Mongering. Parasites; its Multi Billion Dollar Propaganda Industry is Open for the Whole World To See.

We can be grateful to the many ethical and decent Jews who have seen the Cataclysmic Horrors Promised by Nuclear Armed Zionist Madmen and exposed their Genocidal Shills:

Is that the "real" real reason or just the one that feels best to you?

Look Stewy, I'll level with you. There is no love lost between us and Iran. We have had an arrogant past through which we tried to convince countries in the middle east to be our friends when that was impossible. The same impossibility exists to this day so I believe you are right when you say the west does not belong in the Muslim sphere of influence. Except we really, really have a hard-on for Iran since they took our embassy staff hostage. Nope...not over it yet.

The truth is, Arabs still believe they can grind Israel to dust, sweep the dust to the coast and then blow it into the Med., all of this with the blessing of the greater Ummah. For all the hyperbole and empty threats, the "real" truth is that Jews didn't take anything from the Arabs...they took it back. Your side still refuses to accept that no matter what...Israel will not fail and that position will continue to cost you.

Hmmm Not to mention the overthrow of the democratic Iranian government by the CIA/USA. It's ALWAYS OIL you see!!!The USA just prefered thier puppet SHAH regime.

As for the "carbuncle" born out of terrorism, it will fall. All racist regimes eventually do. Did'nt you know that? Even the Un-United States.

ps. What time does the civil war start in the USless. I'm sure it will be great fun!!!

So this is your idea of debate? Drop a full page of your patented brain bubbles and leave after accusing me of hasbara? Nice.

To paraphrase the late, great Donna Summer, "...'Cause when we're bad we're so, so bad".

No doubt about it...we did kind of assist in the overthrow of a legit government, you've got me there. Know something else? We're not done yet.

As for the "carbuncle", you come up with that while lounging on your "Davenport" did you? And the United States too? I suppose anything is possible but I will absolutely guarantee that you won't live to see the day (and you call ME deluded).

Don't tell me you're buying in to the Zionist narrative. Besides, I'd wager they are all better off having left Arab countries than the few who stayed home and tried to make a go of it.

Didn't we read about the last Jew in some Arab country a couple years ago? Tunisia or someplace? Hmmm, now I can't remember...internet makes you lazy.
