Israel is Guilty of Genocide and Crimes against Humanity

03-01-2009 19:48

I cannot and will not respect anyone, especially a colonial population of genocide survivors, who in turn have the nerve to practice genocide. Jewish Nazism is still Nazism, even if brief passages from the Talmud are tucked under the yarmulkes of the murderous gunmen of the IDF.

Blaming the Victims - The Dominant Media Vilify Hamas
