One can criticize Israel, we are told, without being anti-Semitic, but Taki Theodoracopulos has blurred the distinction with his latest screed, entitled: “Israel: The Bernie Madoff of Countries.”
Israel can now safely be called the Bernie Madoff of countries, at it has lied to the world about its intentions, stolen Palestinian lands continuously since 1948, and managed to do all this with American tax payer’s money. Every American taxpayer, starting with George W. Bush, has Palestinian blood on their hands thanks to the butchers that run Israel.
He goes on to write that “neocon Zionists like Frum, Podhoretz and Kristol trumpeted Israel’s withdrawal in the American media (neocon Zionists should be made to register as foreign agents—which they are—of a terrorist state, to boot)”…
Aside from the nasty tone and transparent bigotry, Theodoracopulos doesn’t get his basic facts correct. He writes that “Israel pulled out 800 Israelis from Gaza in 2005” when the actual number was more than 10 times that amount, or around 8,500.
