‘One Voice’ Too Many

Pages: 1 2

More dangerous, however, is that such gestures by perhaps well-intentioned but naïve or foolish people serve to embolden enemies of the Jewish people and Israel. That Jews hold prominent positions in such organizations is noch besser, further proof to Arabs of the righteousness of their cause.

Articulate, well-financed and festooned with “entertainment” personalities, One Voice can get the attention of some left-wing Israeli politicians, but it seems unwilling to get the PA’s attention over the issue of incitement.

An elderly non-Jewish couple from the West Coast that joined One Voice was in Israel for the first time. Asked why they came, they replied, “We are for peace.”

“And how will that happen?”

“Ending the occupation.”

“Which occupation? The one in 1967, or the one in 1948, called the Nakba (catastrophe) when Israel was established?”

“Huh?” they looked puzzled.

It is complicated.

    I don't understand Jews who participate in these ridiculous initiatives. They adhere to vague, utopian sounding causes, like "peace," while ignoring virtually all of steps that are necessary to reaching true peace. Peace is arrived at because of integrity on the part of both sides of a conflict. Peace can only come when there is an element of trust. Peace can only come when neither party is continuing to make genocidal threats. To talk of peace when there are no stepping stones to reach it is absurd and moronic. To feed the narrative of the side that continues to plot genocide, while cynically pretending they want peace, is profoundly stupid, contemptible, and traitorous.

      Liberalism is a mental disorder.

    Actors are professional deceivers. They win awards and are paid according to their ability to project themselves as someone they are not. They are as a group, profoundly narcissistic and more concerned with applause than anything else. Hollywood is a fiction within a fiction.

    Perhaps the industry of deception, aka Hollywood, is the reason so many actors lose their grip on reality, or maybe one has to have a tenuous grip on reality, a weak identity, and a tendency to be dishonest to be a successful actor. Either way, these aren't people we should look to as leaders of anything important. This country has been playing Follow the Liar for way too long.

    There are clearly too many sensible people associated with One Voice to not make this author look like a goof for attacking them.

      You're upside down, Flipper. Try standing on your feet. Maybe you'll finally make some sense, though I won't be holding my breath.

        Right. Because Jason Alexander, Paul McCartney, Natalie Portman, Brad Pitt, Shimon Peres, three Israeli political parties AND the Knesset all have an agenda of genocide against the Jews.

          Naively supporting stupid initiatives doesn't means someone endorses genocide. They can support policies that encourage and support the fanatical, genocidal goals of groups like Hamas, naively though inadvertently. Stupidity isn't a crime, nor is it complicity, but it can be just as dangerous.

          You need to go on a non sequitur diet.

            Right. Everyone in One Voice and three major Israeli political parties, the Knesset and Shimon Peres are all naive. It could happen.

            Your sarcasm and unfeeling comment drips with ignorance of the heart of the issue.

            My feeling is that Israelis, like Communists will gladly throw the whole world full of people into a trash can so that a small gaggle of apparatchiks can keep stealing and swindling more in the name of the group.

    With "Jews" like those who needs inventors of anti-Semitic slur?

    "Through our history many Jews have acted in betraying their God and their own people… " (See item 4):

    Why on earth would anyone give credence to a group of NON-CITZENS telling them how and what they must do in the name of peace? If we showed up in Chili and told them they must get along with Argentina or Peru and to do this they should split their capital and they should give land that will make them vulnerable and they should listen to us because, well, we know better, who in their right mind would listen to us?!?

    These people are too full of themselves and it truly is comical.

  • NotaBene

    One Voice IS naive if they think the Israelis want to end this conflict and so kill the goose that lays the golden eggs
