Thanks for the history. I checked out this commenter's user page and didnt see much of a history, but did see a lot of negative ratings. I tried to remove my up-rating but the system wouldn't take it.
Anyway, if you read one of my comments here, I disagreed that it is pro-terrorism. I think instead, it is more, "I don't necessarilly oppose the terrorism because it is justified by Israel's actions." That is moral equivalence which I don't support.
I know we have disagreed many times on Obama v. Clinton diaries, but I do appreciate your imput and perspective with regard to who these people are. Seeing all this come out has been quite scary, and I have seen it come out of people who I have also seen spewing hateful things against Clinton. Maybe they are just haters that are trying to foment more division here.
I really liked reading this diary. But I want to draw your attention to 2 hate-filled diaries up on the new diary list; one about Netanyahu's statement and one about Israel's crimes.
I think they should be removed because they are not productive and are playing on the worst prejudices. They certainly are not helpful to Democratic Party unity in the fall. Instead, they are scaring me, because I didn't realize our party was filled with people that were so hateful to Israel.
Some Palestinians were forced out, but many were urged to leave by other Arabs, and many went of their own accord. Others stayed and are citizens. Those who left were left in the camps by Arabs, not Israelis. That is where they were found after the 6 day war, and none of the Arabs wanted to help them. Jordan basically said "good riddance", and yet this is all Israel's fault?
I for one can't imagine how anyone can live, knowing that anytime you get on a bus, you could die. I don't know how anyone can live, getting a report of a suicide bombing, and call your loved one's cell phone, hearing it just ring and ring and ring. I can't imagine how a family can go out for an ice cream cone and never come back, or come back missing parts.
I also can't imagine how anyone can dress their baby up to look like a suicide bomber for family photos!
candidate, and you expect he will win the nomination, as it is apparent you do, you might want to take a different approach in trying to charm the Clinton supporters into voting for him in the GE other than my dismissing us as veritable right-wing wing nuts.
