Comments on: Meretz’s peace plan: A challenge to liberal timidity http://972mag.com/meretzs-peace-plan-a-challenge-to-liberal-timidity/62794/ Independent commentary and news from Israel & Palestine Tue, 28 Jun 2016 08:50:53 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8 By: XYZ http://972mag.com/meretzs-peace-plan-a-challenge-to-liberal-timidity/62794/comment-page-1/#comment-100801 Tue, 01 Jan 2013 11:15:26 +0000 http://972mag.com/?p=62794#comment-100801 Thank you for the comment. I don’t know if simply identifying myself as George or some other name would make much difference. The reason I use the pen-name I do is because I frequently encounter great hostility from “Progressive” bloggers and commentors and they often pursue their opponents around the cyber world. I found one who was quoting things I posted 4 years ago. Thus, I look for a fresh start at a new site.

What I don’t understand is why they are hiding behind psudonyms. Are they so unconvinced by their own arguments that they are afraid to identify themselves. I know that the talk-back industdry is wedded to this cowardly conduct, but I wish it wasn’t. Maybe +972 can be a pioneer and only publish comments by people who have the courage to identify themselves? I simply don’t accept the validity of an anonymous comment. For all I know, The Tresspasser and XYZ might be the same person–or ideed anybody. Please, come out from behind your anonymity, tel us fearlessly and honestly who you are!

What Israel *can do now* is to repair 1967, and then Palestinians would certainly be able to rethink 1948, if not the Battle of Jericho. And (it seems to me from outside) Zionism is really *not* sound—to use your criteria, the socialist, cooperative, pluralist character of the state is disappearing, it is doomed by the war machine. Derfner is right, you must break with these exhausted arguments, and if Meretz as a party is ready to do so that’s very good news.

If Mya is right then Larry’s belief that the end of the ‘occupation’ will bring peace is wrong. If Larry is right then Mya’s belief that the occupation is irrelevant because the biggest issue for Palestinians is retrieving the entirety of what they believe is Palestine is wrong.

Something which would cause cognitive dissonance to a non-commie.

Comparing a minority within a minority (after all Likud is supported by mere 30-35%) to a overwhelming majority like Hamas is a good example of such way of thought.

The “greater than” symbol – “>” is used to show that string of text which it starts is a direct quote of previous message.

So, here I am answering again:

I won’t be.

No one is offering anything practical/worthy.

p.s. I’m afraid that you are technically incapable of learning (let alone performing) all my tricks.
