    you know that's some serious hate when you go out of your way to defend **** as a means of throwing the Muslims under the bus

    In fairness much of the rest of Netanyahu's statement is factual and I think Netanyahu is horrible embarrassment.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    OMG, now I've seen it all, but he may have just overdid himself.

    rewriting history has been forever, history is a tool to be used. recently the big texas textbook company (McGraw Hill?) who set the "standards" for most textbooks used in public schools all over the country, changed the word "Slave" to "worker." Thankfully they were stopped dead in their tracks before they went out. I wonder what the reason is behind saying that the civil war was fought over "workers" might be? It could be very interesting reviewing a middle school history textbook.

    If you think you know some things from reading books, esp about "history" I suggest doubt what you think. But that's something we should be doing anyway.
    I find the assault on free thought disturbing,
    I find the willingness to give it up frightening.

    I got a little farther, he'll say anything, esp when it gets some attention. A nice way to get your message across eh? He's kind of brain dead for a politician sometimes.

    Slaves being called workers. Holy hell...
    They probably wanted to unionize and that is what sparked the Civil War.

    That kind of goes without saying.

    This is an interesting column. Thanks for posting it.

    What Will outlines is generally accepted by historians.

    Will's piece comes across to me as a bunch of psychobabel. Lots of people might authorize elimination of things they hate, IF they had the power.There is nothing extraordinary about people who strongly hate. Adolf happened to have the Power to follow through.
    It remains to be seen if the Iranian leadership is willing to risk the consequences of attempting to eliminate Israel. Their behavior can also be seen as the typical use of anti-Israel demagoguery to justify their political power. Will's column can be seen as another attempt to eliminate all alternatives to an invasion of Iran.

    That was not the important point; that **** and his inner circle placed defending one's own "race" law of the jungle style above nationalism is.

    I recall reading parts of Mein Kampf as a student. The professor's point was that had that book been taken seriously, there would have been no surprises about Herr Schicklgruber's actions when he came to power.
