EDITED DIARY

by name Thu Jan 5th, 2006 at 07:47:31 AM EST

[editor's note, by Jerome a Paris] I am reposting the highly inflammatory content of this diary as a comment under my name below in the thread.

I don't want to censor anything, but do think that such a text has no place on the front page of European Tribune, especially as the author has a history of ferocious anti-Israeli comments.

At the time of writing, Ariel Sharon is not yet dead and a modicum of respect is due to anyone, whatever their past, at a time like this.

We don't mind criticism of Israel or of Ariel Sharon, his politics and his past, but diatribes like this one are unlikely to bring much thoughtful dialogue.

Still, the demise of this monster morally equal to hitler, pol pot or stalin is cause of joy for all humanity.

And here I thought I disliked him...

To my knowledge, Sharon didn't exterminate millions, his operations in Unit 101 and the 800 dead in Sabra and Shatila notwithstanding (and the latter was an act of omission). It is patently absurd to place him in the company you do.

my his spawns be befallen by ignorance, poverty and sickness until the fortieth generation.

This sounds a wee bit like Jahve at his worst, wouldn't you agree?

Here's the diary as originally posted by <b<name</b>:


Sharon finally snuffed it. This vocational murderer and terrorist has been rewarded for his life of exalted criminality with a death so horrible that it is commensurate to his deeds in life.

:: ::

His timely death will still not change anything, because he was just one of the many inhabitants of the pestilent cloaca of israeli politics. Many of his companions from the old guard are still alive and steering the politics of the country, many of them come from the same background of criminal and terrorist gangs as sharon himself. unlike other terrorists turned politicians, they have never grown beyond the times of the stern gang: in their innermost they still yearn for the next massacre of arabs.

Sharon, Netanyahu, Olmert and all those other antisocials and psychopaths have not been able to formulate or implement anything resembling responsible policies for their country in over 60 years. Despite many opportunities to reach peace fair to all parties, palestinians and neighboring countries equally, they opted each time for violence, backstabbing, slander, thievery, escalation. They will continue on this path and with their genocide of Palestinians, and US and europe will continue paying for it under various pretexts.

Still, the demise of this monster morally equal to hitler, pol pot or stalin is cause of joy for all humanity. may his name be blotted out forever. my his spawns be befallen by ignorance, poverty and sickness until the fortieth generation.

I personally would prefer that you (name) delete it, but I will let it be your choice.

Netanyahu is too young to have been a member of the Stern Gang, or any other pre-1948 terrorist organisation.

Ditto for the others as well - funny thing about sixty year old organizations - not many surviving members these days. Netanyahu's father on the other hand left Israel after 1948 because he felt that his ideological comrades like Begin and Sharon had betrayed Zionism by not fighting Ben Gurion to support a very large Israel (I believe he wanted all of Jordan as well)

This diary is absurd, offensive, and as far as I can make out, false. I wonder if you might consider deleting it.

As far as cnn and BBC reports...Sharon is alive but in a coma.

...thank you Jerome for editing it...

(I see the diary has been edited, good)

Name, I am opposed to the politics of Sharon and Netanyahu. And I don't find these men in any way likeable.

But you seem unable to repress your delirium. Your comments are outrageous. And don't hide behind saying your feelings are just "anti-Israeli". You'd take far more precautions, be far more diplomatic, if that were the case. What you write here is another upsurge of your bilious antisemitism. Please stop posting this kind of stuff here (or anywhere, for that matter).
