America's entanglement with Israel

Antiwar.com yet again obscures Israel’s role in Syria

The Passionate Attachment
June 4, 2012

It’s far too easy to grandstand about “Western” machinations toward Syria, as Antiwar.com’s Justin Raimondo does in his “The Houla Hoaxsters” piece. A little research, however, on websites such as WINEP, WINEP’s Fikra Forum, JINSA, Saban’s Brookings Doha Center, Foreign Policy Initiative, Foundation for Defense of Democracies, UN Watch or CyberDissidents.org leaves little doubt as to which Middle Eastern country is driving the so-called “Western powers” to intervene in, i.e. destabilize, yet another neighbouring country.

Update: Raimondo loses the plot, libelling me as a White nationalist, anti-Semitic conspiracy theorist!

I don’t know who “another guest” is, but Raimondo seems to think he has only one critic…

That the comments from “another guest” are all you is ridiculously apparent: you’re a joke made even funnier by the fact that you don’t seem to realize it. Anti-semites such as yourself are boring: your monomania, if it ever gained a foothold on this web site, would turn it into a one-dimensional caricature. Why don’t you take your concerns to Stormfront, where your obsession with Jewish conspiracies will receive a better reception? Get off this web site, and stay off.

Update II: I just posted the following response:

That my mere mention of the easily verifiable role of pro-Israel think tanks in leading the push for intervention — something your full-time “anti-interventionist” staff continues to ignore — should elicit such a hysterical overreaction is not only bizarre, but perhaps more revealing than you intended.

By the way, it should also not be too difficult for your staff to verify that I am not “another guest.” Perhaps your clichéd libel of me can be best understood as a projection of your own paranoia.

  1. My immediate response was “Nooooooo [dark stinky stuff]!!!” Jeez, this kind of talk is pathetic – is this what antiwar.com has become? When logic fails – desperately resort to slinging “Anti-semite”? Apparently so. How sad.

  2. I wrote on antiwar.com that Justin Raimondo is completely out of line! Perhaps I’m showing my naivete, but I’m surprised and disappointed in Raimondo.
    Please continue to do what you do so well, Maidhc!

  4. Sounds more like something Angela Keaton would come out with. You’re obviously getting under their skin and increasing numbers are starting to understand the zio-friendly nature of the branded left, as Blankfort has talked about.

  5. Indeed. The overwhelmingly negative reaction to Raimondo and Keaton in the comments section seems to bear that out.
