How easily the lies flow ...

From the keyboard of the professor of political science at California State University, Stanislaus and visiting professor at UC, Berkeley, As’ad AbuKhalil.

In this post, which has nothing whatsoever to do with Israel, he still inserts Israel as a bonus for his avid readers, who I suspect can never have enough of slander, contempt and eliminationist lusts fed to them through any opening in their proverbial bodies. A blogger like AbuKhalil understands well what his readers are looking for and he has no ethics to contain or circumscribe his bile, none whatsoever.

Here is the insertion:

" Israel killed more than 1300 civilians in the July war on Lebanon in 2006, and you want me to spend sleepless nights wondering who killed a man who did so much to cause destruction and discord in Lebanon?"

How easily the lies drop from the professor's keyboard, considering that:

" For the first time, a senior Hamas official admitted that between 600-700 security personnel—approximately half of whom were Hamas members—were killed during Operation Cast lead.

Following Operation Cast Lead, Iran-backed Hamas reported that fewer than 50 of its men were killed.

The admission made by Fathi Hammad, Hamas' interior minister, in an interview with Al-Hayat corroborates figures reported by the Israel Defense Forces following the operation."


Please note that the prof's statement would have been a lie even before Hamas revealed its own body-count.

This is an academic person, who is entrusted with the teaching of young students about how to read and interpret, how to maintain an objective distance and a critical alertness, how to obtain and verify knowledge, information, truth.

But then what else would you expect from the same person when, being bored with himself, posts a strange comment like this, out of nowhere and for no discernible reason or provocation:

"Ehhhhhhhhhh

I hate when Israelis speak English they follow every word with "ehhhhhhhhh". As in: Israel ehhhh is ehhhh justified ehhhh to ehhhhh massacre ehhhhhh Arab ehhhh children ehhhhh."

Can anyone provide a plausible explanation for such ventilation? Is it anything at all except a verbal fart? Mind you, this is a professor teaching in one of America's most famous universities.

Update: I always tell my kids that anger makes you stupid. I am mortified that, in my anger about the professor's lies, I read too fast and made an error in the reference to the war he was actually citing. Commenter liamalpha provides a corrective:

Hi Noga,

AbuKhalil is talking about the 2006 Lebanon war and you're mixing up with the 2008 Gaza operation. The professor is no doubt an Israel hater, and ignores the fact that Hezbollah hid inside civilian areas, and, but according to Wikipedia (if it is reliable), 500-600 Hezbollah fighters and around 1200 (UN figure) Lebanese civilians were killed in that conflict.

However, in the Hebrew Wikipedia it is claimed that the UN figure for civilian casualties includes the Hezbollah fighters, which will put the number of civilian deaths at 600-700.

The funny thing is , the corrected info does not change the lying and slandering, only calibrates the data.

Yes. He is suffering from gases. There is no other rational excuse.
