(RE: Thomas Friedman's column, NYT Dec 2, 2000)
Guess who was having a wet dream when he wrote the following words. "Israel
will attack every Syrian tank and missile battery inside Lebanon. But in
order to do that Israeli jets will also have to destroy the Syrian radar
and missile batteries just inside Syria that also cover Lebanese Airspace.
The (sic) means a Middle East war. Goodbye, Syria. Goodbye, Nasdaq. Hello,
Nice guess, but it wasn't Sharon or Barak? It was Thomas L. Friedman
writing in the New York Times, an ethnic daily journal that caters to a
large Jewish readership in the United States. Forget about the piss poor
quality of the writing. This moron is trying to say something.
You can see the drool on Friedman's face when he penned the following
lines addressed to the President of Syria: "Bashar, did your late father
ever tell you what Barak did last year? One night, it was about 3 a.m.,
Israeli F-15 fighter jets, using Israeli-designed electronic countermeasures
and laser-guided smart rockets, flew into Lebanon in the dark of night
and blew up 10 tanks belonging to your Palestinian guerrilla pal Ahmed
Jabril. Do you know how many rockets the Israeli jets fired in the dark
to knock out those 10 tanks? Eleven. Do you know how accurate that is?
You couldn't score that high in Nintendo."
There goes little Tommy Friedman again, comparing a murderous war with
Someone should take the joystick out of his hand before he hurts himself.
There is more from this freak of a journalist who has somehow landed a
permanent place on the editorial pages of the New York Times (the daily
ruse). Friedman boasts about IDF military might like an adolescent Israeli
who has swallowed whole the complete Encyclopedia of Zionist mythology.
Fancying himself at the head of the assault, Friedman blabbers the following
lines "Many Israeli generals believe Israel's deterrence capability has
been badly eroded and they may need to put on a real sound and light show
that will demonstrate to the whole region just how sophisticated its air
force has become." I bet he had his toy helmet on when he wrote those lines.
If Friedman is that desperate for a 'sound and light' show, he can wait
for the fourth of July. But that would be a little too American for this
brand of ethnic journalist. The thing about Friedman is that he is an erratic
chameleon. One day he is giving sincere advice to Arafat. The next day
you find Friedman condoning Israeli violence against unarmed Palestinians
resisting the brutal IDF military occupation. The same IDF Friedman uses
as an altar for his wet dreams.
The New York Times has always had an open podium for this kind of blatant
pro-Israeli advocacy. Now, in the great tradition of Randolph Hearst, it
wants to start a war in the Middle East. As a party to the Israeli/Palestinian
conflict, when the New York Times wants a war in the Middle East, it gets
a war going. Memo to: Thomas Friedman. In a real war, the other guy fires
