Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, July 20, 2014

The deputy mayor of Haefa, Israel, and his son were beaten Saturday when right-wing activists attacked left-wingers protesting Israel's offensive in the Gaza Strip. The right-wing activists had gathered in the area, burned a Palestinian flag and shouted "Death to Arabs." Deputy Mayor Suhail Assad and his adult son were beaten by a mob after they discussed among themselves whether the son, who was wearing a red shirt, was an Arab. Protesters against the war carried Palestinian flags and red flags, shouting slogans such as "Jews and Arabs refuse to be enemies."

The police were the aggressors yet again. It's time for Judaism to admit Zionism no different from any other fascism.

When we secure Israel know that these ultra-orthodox are the violent insurgents, mining roads and destroying the oil infrastructure.

This why Americans are becoming fed-up with Israelis.

Jews? No problem. Hell, the roots of every Abrahamic religion are in Judaism. Islam and Christianity were invented long after Judaism.

The Israelis remind me of a little, mean and nasty child, who gets away with murder because he can snap his finger to bring his big, mean friend to help.

Europeans are starting wise up, and sometimes even say "no" to the obnoxious child.

#6 - blaming 'israelis' is like blaming 'Americans' for the right wing extremism in America.

Not all Israelis (which are jews, arabs and christians) go along with the 'death to arabs' crap. In haifa, and surrounding areas, the different peoples coexist peacefully.

I have been there many times and I can tell you that the rank and file jew and Arab and christian treat each other and their religious needs with respect.

But, like in America, the vocal facists make the news.

Its not so much that the majority thinks like the more violent, aggressive loons. Its that they tolerate them. And on some level its because the majority thinks "They might be wrong but we can't take action against our own people". Same attitude is the reason why Islamic extremists flourish despite being a "minority" among Muslims. Saying "I don't agree with them" after looking both ways to make sure none of them are around is pretty much the same thing as giving them free reign.

I'm wondering how much Israelis have changed over the past 20 years. It seems like the most recent waves of immigrants there are much more likely to be hardliners against any two-state solution and aggressively in favor of new settlements.

No, the police formed a human wall between the peace demonstrators and the counter demonstrators, and some of them were hurt doing that job. The aggressors were some of the counter demonstrators who sought out and assaulted someone they believed was an Arab.

WELL SAID....no bull, I'm serious...well said.

and in the meantime, Christians are being forced to identify themselves with markings on the outside of their homes.

How fortunate we are to have a president that's being a real leader and in the forefront of issues like this that ....

oooh..never mind.

You are probably right, but I can't read either post in full so I will have to presume so. The link to the first peace rally implied police instigated violence with peaceful demonstrators, but the reality is that these were anti-Palestinian protestors who clashed with police.

It's hard to find good information - even Washington Journal has a total blackout on this Gaza massacre since day one. Even Greta hung-up on a caller yesterday. I'm extremely disheartened with my most beloved of information and opinion sources..

Conservatives. Where only violence is the answer and why they consistently fail at government.
