Abu Mazen also has been criticized for a 1983 book in which he suggested the figure of 6 million Jews killed in the Holocaust was "peddled" by the Jews. In "The Other Side: The Secret Relationship between Nazism and the Zionist Movement," he said the Zionists collaborated with the Nazis to murder Jews in a plot to gain sympathy for creation of the state of Israel.

It figures the Palestinians would elect an assclown like this.

Bottom line: No Independent State For You!

Can't Abbas just say that he had "youthful indiscretions" like GWB did?
2003-04-29 02:05:05 PM  
'Ariel bombardment', gotta get me one of those! Be bombarded by mr. Sharon.

Last week, President Bush praised Abu Mazen as "a man dedicated to peace," indicating he would invite him to the White House for talks after his cabinet was installed

OMG...Did Pres. Bush put his foot into his mouth again?

Maybe, but GWB's indescretions don't include killing people.

"The PLO operative recalled how Arafat and Abu Mazen both wished him luck and kissed him when he set about organizing the Munich attack."

If I had to kiss and get kisses from guys with unshaven mugs and camel-dung breath all day, I might just go terrorist myself.

"OMG...Did Pres. Bush put his foot into his mouth again?"

Well, it does look like Bush's mouth is about a size 10 1/2 wide.

His guy would be so perfect to rule Iraq.

Bush's hands are covered with blood, With bits iof childrens spleens stuck to his lying face. That and he is a crack head.

- i blew up a bus
- i murdered a judge
- i bought drugs.
- my body. my choice.
- i killed a family that got in my way
- if you use drugs. you're supporting terror.

....but when Bush used drugs in the 70s presumably he was not supporting terror? Howzat?!
2003-04-29 02:15:15 PM  
That figures....
2003-04-29 02:15:28 PM  
Two comments for ya...

a: could you be a little less vague about your feelings?


b: isnt Tuesday the day you clean out from under your bridge?
2003-04-29 02:16:06 PM  
Also, that pic is slightly modified, as in Arafat's right hand was darkened by a photoshopping Farker who didn't like how it seemed discolored (viz fish-belly white) in the PS contest source pic some weeks back. But other than that it's the original pic.
2003-04-29 02:16:36 PM  

You've proven your point. I meant "pulling the trigger", but I can't argue with logic.
2003-04-29 02:17:19 PM  
....but when Bush used drugs in the 70s presumably he was not supporting terror? Howzat?!

That's a bit of a stretch... about as big of a stretch as the 'Weed = Terror in Saudi Arabia' argument.

And, yes, I'm not lost on the point of your post. It's the Bush official line, which incriminates himself, yea yeah.

As long as moral relativism is the buzz word of the day, I don't think Bush is even remotely as messed as Abbas.
2003-04-29 02:18:38 PM  
If you ever get the chance to see the film "One Day in September" about the Munich terrorist debacle, do. It really is the most amazing, funny, and tragic thing.

2003-04-29 02:23:03 PM  
Well gee, when you consider that Arafat himself won the Nobel Peace Prize (1994), all sense and reason just go right out the window. So why not call this guy a man of peace?
2003-04-29 02:23:32 PM  
I guess President Bush only considers murderers men of peace

Terror mastermind says 'moderate' leader praised by Bush financed 1972 rampage killing 11 Israelis

Bush financed the 1972 Olympic attacks!?
2003-04-29 02:28:52 PM  
In this context I think we can read "a man of peace" as diplo-speak for "not as batshiat crazy and impossible to work with as Arafat." Its pretty standard procedure to do this sort of thing when dealing with less than savory political entities and diplomats have a whole parlance of code words that are used to pretty up unpleasant news. Thats why we say that the U.S. and North Korea had a "frank exchange of views" rather than "there were voices raised.

Why is Bush redecortaing the White house with new cabinets?
What was wrong with the old ones?

I can't remember the last time a President of the USA didn't have a foot in their mouth. I thought it was a standard operational procedure for all elected/appointed officals to the executive branch.

Lgd: You reminded me of an old Roger Waters, post Pink Floyd, album "Radio KAOS"

Our leaders had a frank exchange of views
Are you confused, radio waves." - Roger Waters

From the parasitic link that Elmixtli posted:

Saddam Hussein Could Launch
Deadly Biochemical Attacks Against
America Within 60 Days

On December 18, the Associated Press reported, U.S. intelligence officials believe Saddam will use his biological and chemical weapons if he believes he is about to fall, even in the opening days of a war.

2003-04-29 02:51:09 PM

He's got it right. The US needs to endorse this guy, even though he has denied the Holocaust, and he probably had something to do with Black September (if he didn't flatout mastermind it).

Why, you ask?

Beyond the reasons presented by Lgd, he seems willing to play ball with Israel, rein in the murderous paramilitary groups that inhabit Palestine like larvae inhabit an open wound, and bring order to a region where order seemed out of the question.

It's not a pretty step, but it's a first one, and if things go right, it'll pay off.

Calling him "a man of peace" is really more the first overture in the diplomatic process. Abbas has said he is committed to the U.S. plan for a Palestinian state in 3 years. Besides, what is Abbas going to do, say that he's not a "man of peace"? On the flip side, it also sends a message to the Israelis that they better think long and hard about the proposed plan, because it puts the ball in their court to accept a plan that has the endorsement of a "man of peace." And, among heads of state, it's generally just considered good manners when a new one is elected to say something nice about him to avoid getting relations off on the wrong foot.
2003-04-29 02:59:11 PM  
could have been an OBVIOUS tag
2003-04-29 03:07:28 PM  
Actually, this may be the first intelligent thing Shrub's ever done, foreign policy wise. It is unfortuate that Abu-Mazer's political aspirations lead to bloodiness, but, at the time, it looked like a pretty swell idea. After 30 years of failing in assymetrical warfare, though (which is what terrorism is, if you look at it from the terrorist's side; It's all done with labels.) it appears that he has decided to try a different route to giving his people some measure of security and prosperity.

Look at it this way - in the 70's, the PLO was a state looking to happen, and fighting a war against the folks who took their land (that's how they see it, not necessarily how it happened). The PLO lost the war (took 'em 30 years to figure it out), and now they need to settle down and govern. They have a gang problem to rein in in the form of Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

This guy looks like he just might have the will to do it.

For that reason, why should Israelis killed in a war in the 70's be held against him if he's going to try to save some Israeli lives in this century? (Granted, that would be incidental to saving his own people's lives, but the fact remains.)

Oh, and even though Bush and I agee on one thing once, does not mean that he is not a bloody minded, bloody handed morally crippled, intellectually void, snivelling coward. If he were ten times the man he is, he'd still be a quarter of the man his Daddy was, and his Daddy has a long way to go before I would admit him to the human race.

First of all, if any of you asshats give ONE OUNCE OF CREDIBILITY to World Net Daily then you are just as much of an assclown as Joseph Farah himself. This is someone who has made a lifetime career out of bashing Muslims, Arab Muslims, and anything having to do with Palestine. Is it any surprise whatsoever that his stupid rag is making yet another attempt to subvert the legitimacy of the Palestinian cause?

fark World Net Daily, fark Joseph Farah, and fark anyone who believes anything that asshole has to say.
2003-04-29 03:17:41 PM  
And if anyone should be investigated, its the fat pig Prime Minister of Israel, Adolf Sharon. Why would the U.S. support someone who is DIRECTLY responsible for the mass slaughter of innocents in Lebanon? The real war criminal is right before us.
2003-04-29 03:21:46 PM  

Farah is right a lot of the time, but his motives (Jebus returning) are off the wall and he tends to be a knee jerk arab/palestine basher.

That being seem to be the same, but on the other side of the fence. Adolf Sharon? DIRECTLY responsible for mass slaughter in Lebanon? War Criminal? Knee jerk Israel basher.
2003-04-29 03:43:13 PM  
Macabre may have overstated and oversimplified in his comments about Sharon, but I'm heartened to see at least one person who recognizes that the record of many Israeli leaders is less than stellar. Through the decades, atrocities have been commited by persons on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. With Jewish Democrats and Fundamentalist Christian Republicans all vehemently supporting Israel, the majority of the stories we get here in the USA are more than a little bit one-sided.
2003-04-29 03:43:32 PM  
Actually Macabre he is indirectly responsible for the slaughter of hundreds of Palestinians.

I'm sure they're going to get along fine-
Sharon "How do you kill innocent civilians?"
Abbas "Well, I like the suicide bomb."
Sharon "Really? I prefer the bulldozer."

...the search for a Zionist-loving, anti-terror Palestinian candidate continues...
2003-04-29 04:10:15 PM  
Like I said in the other thread, why don't you discuss how Israel systematically violates the US Arms Export Control Act by firing on civlians in crowded Nazi-style ghettos? Depriving them of free access to trade, free movement to loved ones, instigating collective humiliation and punishment on an entire race of people, sanctioning state-sponsored apartheid with "Jews only" roads and "jews only" nationalization efforts ("Right of Return"). Sharon is a war criminal and Israel is a terrorist state with nuclear weapons. How can there possibly be any debate about that unless you are a war monger, pro-Israeli Christian/Zionist of some kind bent on the subjugation of Palestinians and Muslims throughout the Middle East?
