I’ve been trying to avoid all reportage on the current situation in Israel and Gaza, because I know most of it will be bent one way.
I’d rather talk to people about the conflict, and hear both sides for myself.
I’d rather not hear from Disturbed frontman David Draiman, who has weighed in on the matter, blaming “the mainstream media” for its “biased, libelous, and often erroneous portrayal of Israel” in the current conflict and claims a number of the world’s biggest news organizations have “set the stage for a new Holocaust.”
Dude, calm the fuck down.
“The mainstream media’s biased, libelous, and often erroneous portrayal of Israel in the current conflict has fueled a wave of anti-Semitism, the likes of which I have not witnessed in my lifetime. Well done, CNN, BBC, Reuters [and] MSNBC, you’ve set the stage for a new Holocaust. Maybe you’d be happy/satisfied when the extremist nutbags you defend so much, who eagerly martyr their own children who chant for the death of all Jews, not just the Israelis, and whose ethics, morals and values stand diametrically opposed to your own liberal views of freedom of religion, gay marriage, pro choice, and even democracy itself, strip the region of the only bastion of true liberty that exists in the region. Well, guess what? Never again. Jews aren’t so easy to fuck with anymore.”
Seriously? Calm down dude.
