Brown Sauce: Fighting Racism with Racism...

Looking into the Oliver Stone flap I came across few Britbloggers that ruminated about it but Normblog and Harry's Place didn't disappoint. I won't go into 'Alan A's' (HP) predictably over the top reaction but reading through the comment section I found this little gem from regular contributor and racist Zionist 'Fabian from Israel', comment of 27 July 2010, 5:23 pm [emph. is mine]:

Most of you were born in the First World. I come from a relatively privileged area of the Third World, Argentina.

The slums I saw every time I left Buenos Aires city make Gaza look like London. Are concrete houses a refugee camp? In your dreams! Argentina’s slums are built of tin shacks stacked one over the other.

Seriously, Gazans live waaaaaaaaaaaay better than the average Argentinian. And they don’t even have to WORK! The day that UNRWA stops feeding them, the conflict will be over. Gazans don’t know what real life is. But not in the sense anti-imperialists think.

FFS, just visit any real third world country in Latin America and if you are honest you won’t give a damn about the Palestinians anymore!

After the ubiquitous 'really dude, if it ain't as bad as the Sahel, it can't be all that bad' trope comes the seriously racist codswallop of Palestinians 'not having to work'. Fabian's made similar statements about 'Israeli male Arabs not working because all they do is study the Qu'ran' (or words to that effect). Imagine anyone making comparable statements about da Joooos...

And 'when UNRWA stops, the conflict will be over'. Why's that, Fabian? Because then they will actually be even worse off? Wasn't that Israel's clearly failed plan all along?

At the Brown Sauce all this passes for reasonable commentary about possibly racist comments made by a public figure. It'll be fun to watch and see if any Zionist commenter at HP will point out Fabian's own racist position.

Regarding Oliver Stone, his statements were crude and very generalist and thus borderline racist. But the reaction from Zionists remains predictably gross and OTT.

And now I'm off to the slums of Argentina to get a cure for my pro-Palestinian activism...

On the Sauce again DyWp?
I find the follwoing website an excellent restorative, as it always puts me in mind of HP for some reason -
spEak You're bRanes

These ungrateful Palestinians in Gaza - they just don't know how good they've got it!

After all these decades of being dispossessed; ethnically cleansed; massacred; their leaders systematically liquidated or imprisoned or exiled; their public infrastructure deliberately destroyed; the whole community llegaly imprisoned, starved, beated, collectively punished and traumatised -
- and they still have the cheek to complain about Israel, after everything it has done for them over the years to make their lives so cushy!
Gaza is a veritable paradise on earth.

Mind you, if life in Gaza is such an Arcadian pastoral idyll, why aren't there any zionist-Israelis rushing to go and live there?
Probably because its full of smelly antisemitic Arabs I expect. Or something.

all the best!

Hi Joe,

Brown Sauce: wild horses couldn't keep me away...

The thing with the Fabians from Argentina from Israel (a fan of Alan Jerkowitz too) is that they seem to believe G-d, the UN or somfink poofed Israel into existence and then the pesky Arabs arrived to spoil the party. Hence they deserve everything that comes to them.

Thanks for the link, great blog that will be visited often. The top post is spot on.

What I don't get Gert is,
that if being bombed to rubble from the air is such a cushy number, then why did zionists complain when Saddam was firing his Scud missiles into Israel?

Why all the hullabaloo over Hezbollah rockets landing in northern Israel - and why all the complaints about Hamas rockets being fired into southern Israel?

Surely zionists, like our former-Argentinian fiend, sorry friend, is just being thick and obtuse in not wanting to be bombed?

keep on the sauce and keep up the good work

all the best

Oh, Joe, Joe, Joe...

You're not really in the loop, are you? The Zionist Thingy does evertang in self-defense, evertang, I tell you. It's part and parcel of being a Western transplant: all we ever do is defend ourselves...
