“Go easy on this guy. He’s a nice guy, even though he’s a Zionist, and he’s had some heart problems.”
That was the advice from Press TV before Monday’s “The Debate” with Jeffrey Alderman. So I tried to avoid personal attacks, even though his arguments were annoying the jahannum out of me.
Press TV described the debate topic as follows:
Israel’s Operation Protective Edge: Record after record broken: from the number of dead, number of children killed, entire families wiped out, the devastation from the property damage, broken ceasefires, to UN agencies hit. All entail breaking international law which carries war crimes. Israel targeting of UN run schools has been condemned by the US, UN, and some other countries, like France. But why has there been no pressure on Israel beyond words? In this edition of the debate, we’ll discuss the prospects for a peace agreement, and the failure of the Intl. community. We’ll also discuss whether world opinion turning on Israel would translate into further isolation of Israel.
Respecter.Info’s headline was:
I’m just happy I didn’t give the poor guy another heart attack.
Now if I were debating Netanyahu, I would feel differently.
