You have to wonder why some Jews want to commit suicide

Can't we all just get along?

A group of German Jews planning to take a boat with humanitarian aid to break the Gaza blockade now says it's looking for a second boat because so many European Jews have asked to join them. Jewish Voices for a Just Peace, which includes the offspring of German Jews who fled the Holocaust, want to take children's food, clothes, medicine and school supplies as well as musical instruments, "food for the soul."

"We just see that a Jewish state is occupying Palestine, laying a siege, and depriving children of the things that they need. We as Jews are saying, 'not in our name.'" - Kate Katzenstein-Leiterer, a leader of the new flotilla effort.

These are the children and grandchildren of those who survived Nazi death camps, yet they still can't grasp that when Hamas, and other radical Muslims, say they want to kill Jews and destroy Israel, they mean it.

You have to wonder what it is in their background... education, societal influence... exactly what drives them.

  2. I would have let the comment stand if you had bothered to include the complete comment and my response.

    But no lies by ommission allowed.

  3. She did delete your comments, PPJ, why is that a lie of omission?

    Here's Jeralyns' comment with your response, since you seem to think it makes all the difference in the world:

    his reference to genetics was offensive. Jim,stop posting on this topic. I don't care to have this site trashed by your discussion. You are deliberately provoking other commenters.

    For everyone: Please refrain from deliberately provoking aggressive responses, it's called baiting.

    Please refrain from telling others what or how to post

    Please refrain from derailing the thread (when it's not an open thread)

    Please steer clear of personal attacks.

    of Israel as can be shown time and again on this site.

    I did not think of my comment as being anti-Semitic. I am sorry that it has taken that way.

    I hope that Talkleft leaves this comment up.

    Why do you find it difficult comment without the factors that Jeralyn mentioned in her post?

    as you like to say


  4. That you are incapable of understanding is neither surprising nor important. But I will try to educate you.

    I made a comment that was misunderstood and used by some commentators to attack me.

    That I was dumb enough to give them that opportunity is my fault.

    An apology was in order.

    Now. Do you have a comment about this post on this blog? If not, don't waste your time with more juvenile acts.
