Israel shares much with the United States, including insanity from its left wing! From Haaretz today:
The Yesha Council of settlements reiterated its contention that in at least some of the cases where olive trees have been cut down, the perpetrators are Arabs and left-wing activists. Left-wing organizations were taking advantage of planned pruning of trees to slander the settlers, the Yesha Council also said yesterday.
Yesha Council chairman Bentzi Lieberman demanded a few weeks ago that the Israel Defense Forces and the police thoroughly investigate the uprooting of trees in the village of Salem, in order to "identify the real perpetrators."
In America, the left wing tries to force America to surrender by revealing secrets, deriding the troops, and blocking key legislation. In Israel, these peace-loving liberals try to force an Israeli surrender by purposely committing vile acts, then blaming their government for them. It would be as if Ted Kennedy (and Andrew Sullivan?) were running a torture chamber underneath the capitol...
I'm not a fan, but I am beginning to believe Michael Savage is right: Liberalism is a mental disease.
