Profiles in Moonbattery: Richard Cohen
When it comes to moonbattery at its most treacherous, no one tops WaPo's Richard Cohen, who has openly sided with the Islamic terrorists laying siege to our democratic ally Israel.
The greatest mistake Israel could make at the moment is to forget that Israel itself is a mistake.
What an astonishing statement. But Cohen backs it up — with sheer idiocy, of course.
If you look at history in the funhouse mirror that serves Cohen as a mind, Muslim terrorism over the last 100 years is a result of the dumb idea of "creating a nation of European Jews in an area of Arab Muslims (and some Christians)." Inconceivably, Cohen seems not to be aware of the profound ties Jews have with their homeland, going back thousands of years.
Here's how Cohen feels about terrorists:
There is no point in condemning Hezbollah..... And there's not much point, either, in condemning Hamas.
You see, they're "zealots." That means they get to behave like savages, while civilized societies are morally obligated to cease existing for their sake.
Cohen's derangement extends to policy:
Whatever happens, Israel must not use its military might to win back what it has already chosen to lose: the buffer zone in southern Lebanon and the Gaza Strip itself.
After recounting the reasons why withdrawing from these regions produced Israel's current predicament — Gaza openly run by Hamas terrorists, Hezbollah showering Israel with missiles from southern Lebanon — Cohen gibbers that reoccupying these territories would subject Israel to "having the world look on as it committed the inevitable sins of an occupying power." In other words, Israel would be subjected to hostile propaganda by pro-terrorist moonbats like Cohen, who dominate the MSM.
But like America, Israel will be subjected to hostile propaganda from liberals no matter what it does. That's the price you pay for being the good guy.
So what should Israel do, according a sage like Cohen? Withdraw further, absorb the blows, wait to die. Here's how Cohen puts it:
The smart choice is to pull back to defensible — but hardly impervious — borders. That includes getting out of most of the West Bank — and waiting (and hoping) that history will get distracted and move on to something else. This will take some time, and in the meantime terrorism and rocket attacks will continue.
Clearly Cohen is not the sharpest tool in the shed, but he could hardly be dumb enough to think that Muslims would ever "get distracted and move on" so long as Israel exists. To "hunker down," as he puts it, and wait until Muslims grow bored with rocket attacks, kidnapping and suicide bombing would mean acquiescing until the last Jew in the Jewish homeland had been murdered.
What this appalling little creature is calling for is willful submission to genocide.

I believe that Mr. Cohen is invinting Israel into these nice showers over hre. I believe that in Mr. Cohen's youth, he got slapped around a lot by bullies. Pussy.

There's a good refutation of this dolt over at Israel Matzav.
Even I know more about Israel's history than Cohen, and it's a parttime hobby on my part.
Of course, I'm not an anti-Semitic pig, either.

I wonder how many times a day he urinates on himself. I'm betting on eleven...no maybe fourteen.

I agree with this feeble minded schmuck--Let's kill all the Jews, we'll start with HIM.
Then I'll change my mind.

Judging by his name, he himself is a Jew. What is his motivation? Is he THAT clueless? What a moron!

Bomb Lebanon? 'Bout time. Before
the islamic terrorists got hold of Lebanon in the 1970's,
Lebanon was a thriving, up and coming country.
Hezbollah has murdered and driven out
Christian Lebanese for decades while the world
has been kissing the arse of the PLO, and every other
muslim terrorist. And for what? A politically correct photo opp?
