I. Can you find the difference between the following quotes? Bottom-line, is there a difference?
Found on Facebook:
"Much of the injustice that takes place in our world stems from ignorance. We reject being emotionally blackmailed by Hollywood tales and holocaust museums which legitimize the war crimes and crimes against humanity of the extremist Atheist regime of Tel-Aviv."
I support Israel. But honestly. Not in exchange for a nutty U.S. Israel-first U.S.-second Americans like Dyer they shamelessly seek and accept the support of those who advocate for a fundamentalist theocracy (like the so-called "christian right", who as an aside are decidedly un-christian); or a tawdry right winger who advocates pure evil in foreign affairs like Eliot Abrams.
