Eric Walberg - who believes that “Jews have a long history of building up wealth and control in their ‘host’ societies, only to ‘go beyond the Pale’” and remarks: “Funny this fascination with drinking blood among Jews” - celebrates the coming together of natural allies:
What is striking about this latest conference is the growing cooperation both within the Muslim world and between the anti-global left and Muslims. This should come as no surprise, considering the traditional focus of the left on defending victims of torture.
I suppose Pol Pot was a “victim of torture” in that his regime was cruelly accused of it, and also of murdering a few million Cambodians. Following leftist tradition, Noam Chomsky defended him. Same deal with defenders of Mao and Castro; it’s a leftist tradition, you see.
Who are the biggest victims of torture in the world today? Of course, Muslims, primarily in Iraq and Palestine, but everywhere in the West, and just about in every country that is predominantly Muslim.
It would do Walberg well to read that bolded section again.
The key forum at the conference: “bridge building between the left and Islam” focussed on re-evaluating the relations of the left and the Islamists, as well as on practical ways to increase cooperation.
Difficult to see this moving ahead unless the Left gets its bitches under control. Have you seen what those tramps wear? Also, Islamists have a small problem with gay marriage, but only insofar as they prefer gay executions. No deal-breaker.
Ali Fayyad of Hizbullah ... referred to Gramsci’s argument about creating a common front at important historical junctures to induce historical change, after which the different groups can go their separate ways. What a lovely irony to have an Islamist quoting a Western communist theorist.
Johannes Anderson of Denmark criticised the Danish left for not standing behind Muslims during the cartoon controversy, allowing a weak prime minister to emerge unscathed.
He emerged unscathed, did he? That won’t do. That won’t do at all.
