The leadership of the Arab minority is responsible for rising racism among Israeli Jews toward Israeli Arabs, Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman told Israel Radio on Wednesday.
The utter ridiculousness of this concept?
It could have nothing to do with the state endorsed propaganda?
The perceived religious superiority?The myth of the chosen people ideology?
When asked if his own political line was not responsible for the rise in hatred between Jews and Arabs, Lieberman said: "I think all of the credit, 100 percent of it, should go to the Israeli Arab leadershipAnd it certainly has nothing to do with the garbage Lieberman spews to his indoctrinated followers.
And how about those rabbi's? A long line of them that spread hatred for a long, long time to receptive ears..
From Rabbi Meir Kahane
After a Career of Preaching Hatred for Arabs, Rabbi Meir Kahane Is Cut Down by An Assassin's BulletHe carried the title of a man of God. But Rabbi Meir Kahane spent most of his life wallowing in the profane rather than promoting the sacred. He could claim credit, if that is the word, for the formation of the violent Jewish Defense League and for a campaign of hate-mongering against Arabs.
All the way to Rabbi Ovadia Yosef
In a sermon given on Saturday on laws concerning what non-Jews are permitted to do on Shabbat, Yosef said: "Goyim [non-Jews] were born only to serve us. Without that, they have no place in the world – only to serve the People of Israel."
Who can forget the extremist settlers, heavy duty religious nut jobs?
Or the funders of these terrorists. Who burn churches and olive groves.
So, Leiberman discounts the role of the state. A long line of politicians, such as himself.
And, an entire history of fanatical religious leaders preaching hate, for the increase in racist attitudes amongst Israelis?
Instead he blames the victim, he blames the Arabs for what the Israelis and their leadership have done to themselves and to the people of Israel.
Rather like a white man, blaming his black victim, for causing him to perpetuate his crime against his black victim?
How very racist of Lieberman.
