The people on this thread who believe this cartoon to be hyperbolic respond by
calling it blood libel? Are you kidding me?
This cartoon, though lacking in subtlety, makes a concrete, irrefutable
comparison between the realization of the modern United States and the past and
current trajectory of Israel. Colonization is colonization and calling anyone who
points this out an anti-Semite is unseemly and wrong.

Another Fish blood libel.
Not only libelous, but ignorant and supremely bigoted.
Nothing new for him, though.

worthy crap like this.

Typical leftist blood libel.
Informed only by his prejudices and not by fact, Fish shamelessly exposes
either his ignorance or visceral hatred.
Probably both in equal measure.

Remarks from Benjamin Netanyahu

would, but [that] I’m going to interpret the accords in such a way that would
allow me to put an end to this galloping forward to the ‘67 borders. How did we
do it? Nobody said what defined military zones were. Defined military zones are
security zones; as far as I’m concerned, the entire Jordan Valley is a defined
military zone. Go argue.”
Netanyahu then explained how he conditioned his signing of the 1997 Hebron
agreement on American consent that there be no withdrawals from “specified
military locations,” and insisted he be allowed to specify which areas
constituted a “military location” - such as the whole of the Jordan Valley. “Why
is that important? Because from that moment on I stopped the Oslo Accords,”
However, this is consistent with Rabin’s October 1995 statement to the Knesset
on the ratification of the interim Oslo agreement: “B. The security border of the
State of Israel will be located in the Jordan Valley, in the broadest meaning of

This is such a poignant, disturbing, and truthful observation by Mr. Fish.
