Tristan Anderson still 'critical'

B'Tselem: Tear gas canisters as weapons

On 13 March, a Border Police officer fired an extended-range type tear-gas canister that struck Tristan Anderson, an American citizen, during a demonstration in Ni’lin. B'Tselem’s investigation reveals that the police officer fired the canister directly at Anderson from 60 meters away, even though Anderson had not thrown stones and had not endangered the police officers. The grenade struck him in the forehead, fracturing his skull and injuring the front lobe of his brain. It is still too early to determine the extent of the damage.


Particularly instructive are the two B'Tselem video segments. These cannot be embedded, so you need to take a close look, here.

Is your site sponsored by Saudi Arabia yet? If not, you should get in on the action.
Has David Duke or Mark Glenn linked to your blog yet?
Any way, I'm taking a lot of heat comparing Kahanists to Nazis right now on a message board.
I'm not deranged like you though. It helps keeping a good fair perspective.

And what 'healthy perspective' might that be, Bacon?

The blatantly racist perspective you have on Arabs and Moooooslims?

Your half-hearted condemnation of the occupation?

Your cowardly belief that interest in Israel really stems from the fact it's "full of 'Jooooos'"?

Your stance 'let them surrender and there will be peace'?

The hypocritical stance that you and you alone are entitled to have strong opinions, which you then brand as a 'healthy perspective'?

The fact that a lazy Zionut like you can't even see that if Israel carries on the way it's doing, that'll mean the end of it as a Jewish state?

Go fight your Kahanists, fights on the fringe of things were always your natural habitat. I hope you also fight that Canada JDL nut (Meir Weinstein), he likes Kahane too...

In the mean time watch your favourite country take hit after hit after hit. Soon its own Stalingrad will pass it by. In part, thanks to people like you.

By the way, if you're going to call me an anti-Semites please do so openly. Veiled references to David Duke and Mark Glenn only bore me.

I think you've developed some anti-semitism. How much? I'm not sure. I do feel that everyone is racist to a degree, even if it is a minor degree.
I think you've gone over the deep end though. You have the biased judgment of a Mark Glenn now.

Bacon:

"I do feel that everyone is racist to a degree"

Very lame. Few have fought racism and xenophobia of any kind like I have.

I distinguish between Jews and Zionists and differentiate between Zionists too.

I don't proclaim to be right on all things I/P but where I'm wrong I'm still in bona fida.

You somehow think your stance is balanced: that's nonsense. Yours is hawkish, neocon style support for a state that happens to be Jewish.

Israel has proved itself to be a lying, racist, murderous state, now entering into proto-fascism (if not worse). Blame the Arabs all you want, they are not responsible for 60 years of occupation.
