However, the point of my post is not the problematic stand of Palestine, but the situation between Israel and Libertarian "values". I believe Mr. Marina pointed something out that has been forgotten in the debate. As much as I here screaming support from national-liberals in the German blogs, like Politically Incorrect or Axis of Good, I think they forgot with whom they are dealing. Zionism and Israel are porportionally socialist in their outlook and if I am not completely mistaken, socialism is something none of those blogs wants... It all comes down to priorities, then. And according to Mr. Marina, Israel is not only slightly socialistic, but a whopping socialist country:
I was in Gaza in December, 1987, about two weeks before the initial Intifada developed. By my fourth visit to Israel in 1990, it was clear my efforts were over. Florida’s AIPAC leaders were not enchanted with the notion of bringing free market ideas to that essentially socialist/corporatist nation, and so informed the University. At that time about 94% of Israel’s economy was under government ownership or control. Eat your heart out, Fidel!
94%? That's much, but you can read more on Israel's background, here. So, should Libertarians vouch all their support for Israel, just because they are attacked by Palestine terrorists, or should we, imo rightfully, critize the state of Israel.
I think Mr. Broder and others are too fanatic about Israel and everyone who tries to put the situation into proportion is called and Anti-Semit or Jew-Hater.
Perhaps he should declare himself than what he truly things is right, since he uses socialist tools to accomplish nationalist ideals. I don't think that this post qualifies as "Anti-Jewish", but I think some people wouldn't hesitate to damn it as such.
