What Those Who Boycott Israel Really Want?
American Spectator ^ | 5-14-2013 | Aaron Goldstein

Posted on 05/14/2013 3:45:48 AM PDT by servo1969

For starters, to set back human progress.

You would think the Left would love a country that has universal health care, prosperous trade unions, and same sex marriage.

All of these things can be found in Israel. Yet where Israel is concerned, none of these count with the Left.

--------------------------

Well, if not for Israeli science and technology, Stephen Hawking could not communicate with the world. As Nitsana Darshan-Leitner, an Israeli attorney, stated, “His whole computer-based communications system runs on a chip designed by Israel’s Intel team. I suggest if he truly wants to pull out of Israel he should also pull out his Intel Core i7 from his tablet.”

Left-wing media and academic figures who want to boycott Israel must take everything that doing so entails. Those who truly support BDS must not swallow PillCams, use solar windows, place GPS devices in their automobiles or write their anti-Israeli diatribes on intel processors.

Those who support a boycott of Israel would prefer to see people poorer and sicker. Those who wish to see Israel regarded as a pariah state will succeed only in impeding the progress of science, technology, and, indeed, humanity.

I would prefer to see those supporting BDS die slowly (but not too slowly), and horribly beyond imagination.

But that’s just me. Mean,

Hawking is far too hypocritical and cowardly to do that.

Most of the world is making the same mistake Hitler did.

If Hitler had used his Jews for Germany instead of killing them we would all be speaking German now. Their scientists were brilliant and their loyalty was great. Israel shows what can be done with land that is barren, Palestinians show how quickly they can destroy what it took years to build. When Gaza was turned over to them they destroyed it almost within a week.

Much like South Africa was destroyed when turned over to
Mandella.

Perhaps you should familiarize yourself with the excerpt list.

You fail to grasp the concept after all this time, which really
doesn’t say much for your intelligence, but I’ll give it one more try
in the spirit of camaraderie and kindness to the afflicted:

Blogs that posters write themselves need not for any reason be excerpted.

Posters submitting material from a single source likely do so with
a commercial objective in mind, abusing FR as a free advertising tool.

It’s really no more complicated than that.

Read it twice. Sound out the words.

“Posters submitting material from a single source likely do so with

So you are posting from the Houston Chron and ABC to make money?

Or do I need to prove that?

But you don’t need to prove it when someone posts from from the American Spectator, Legal Insurrection, or A7/INN?

The last of WHICH IS VIRTUALLY THE ONLY RIGHT WING CONSERVATIVE AND RELIGIOUS ENGLISH WEBSITE FROM ISRAEL.

Or is that the point, its all TOO JEWISH FOR YOU?

“It’s really no more complicated than that. Read it twice. Sound out the words.”

BOIYA. You posted from sites and you excerpted them.

The fact is that other guys do the same but post more articles because you are too lazy.

And in these case, their name isn’t on the masthead, AND a fellow freeper who has been here only a few months less than yo,u and who has gone on numerous public Freeps TELLS YOU THAT HE MET THE GUY in question, AND THAT HE DOESN”T WORK FOR THE SITE IN QUESTION...

NO.... thats not good enough for the high and mighty pimp diddler.

(You go ahead and sound that one out, since you seem to be the one with language issues).

You’re amusing.

Pig-ignorant and obviously dumb as a post, but amusing.

Rant some more.

The Free Republic Software forces excerpting from those sites. There is no choice by the poster.
