I hate to say it, but experience compels me to fully agree with the late Dr. Hajo Meyer, who, as someone who was actually there, is a subject matter expert.
Dr. Meyer was a good man, clearly. Others around him, not so much.
For example, this video clip is from 2009:
Former Israeli Minister (Shulamit Aloni): It’s A Trick We Always Use It. Calling people Anti Semitic
I find it really kind of tragic that the entire country has destroyed itself in the eyes of people who can see right from wrong.
eta: Those so inclined might want to peruse the discussion at Pink Floyd star on why his fellow musicians are terrified to speak out against Israel. It is quite interesting. Although ATS has not been known for openness with this generalized area of interest, they are doing much better as atrocities continue.
