I'm posting this comment even before I watch it, Gert.

Not only have I been slacking in posting on my blog lately, but I've been slacking on my reading too. Meanwhile, it seems you've been as hard at as ever. It seems I've got a lot of catching up to do here.

Grrr. Do you LIKE making work for people or what?

I'm a hard task master, what can I say? ;-)

But do watch the show, a picture speaks louder than a thousand words...

"'Empty Land for a People Without Land'?"

Are you deliberately misquoting, or are you just hopelessly ill-informed?

Matt:

A Land without People for a People without Land is the precise quote. An early Zionist slogan, in disrepute but still used today by more moronic and ahistorical Zionists in order to deny the Palestinian dispossession (Naqba)...

No, you've just misquoted it again, as the page you linked to for evidence shows.

It is not, as you say: "A land without people for a people without a land".

It is "A land without a people for a people without a land".

It is an important distinction.

Are you deliberately misquoting to further your agenda or are you just a bit hopeless?

You know Matty, for your delectation I've amended it.

Please do realise that you're deploying a classical Hasbara tactic: hairsplitting. Attempts at proving the opposition wrong by taking apart their statements syllable by syllable. Not substantial, not smart.

Don't lose any sleep, Gert. Everyone reading here can see what Matt's up to. Yawn.
