[Another day finds the New York Times burnishing one of its fundamental leitmotifs: diminishing the threat to Jews and Israel while simultaneously attempting to handcuff their physical response. It’s a neat trick the Eighth Avenuewhores learned while 6 million Jews were dying in Nazi death camps. Encouraged by their success, the technique became a permanent addition to the Times’s repertoire. This repost on Israpundit’s web site will get you up to speed, but for my money a bit of commentary left by an Israpundit reader is all anybody needs to know. df]

All of you reading this comment know — or ought to know — that the only effective ways to answer the Beinarts are twofold:
First: Ignore them completely. That means do not engage in discourse with them. Do not feel pained about Jews boycotting other Jews. Because people such as Beinart are not Jews. They are leftists of the “Tikun ha-Olam” school who prefer socialism to Judaism. These people are not Jewish nationalists. These people never will be Jewish nationalist. They are as lost to authentic Zionism as the modern American Indians mostly are to their ancient cultures. Forget these people. You inIsrael are in the process of creating an entirely new replacement Jewish nation.
Second: Get on with the long-term task of repopulating Shomron, Yehuda, Golan and Yerushalayim ha-Shalem with Jewish cities and villages, Jewish industrial parks, Jewish military bases, Jewish farms, Jewish parklands. The Jewish population in all these places is getting onto 650,000, and could double about every 15 years. The faster and more steadily you do this, the easier it will become to ignore the quasi-Jewish leftist socialist harpies. More significantly, “facts” on the ground, as Ben-Gurion and Jabotinsky could easily have assured you, are the only thing that counts in a protracted war of one civilization driving out another, taking the land of their enemies, and repopulating it with their own. And that precisely is what is going on here.
You know what I am saying here? Stop wasting Jewish time, Jewish energy and Jewish money on useless hasbara. When I learned that word in Israel in 1973, the Hebrew-English dictionary told me it meant “explanation”. But the Israelis, in their direct and abrupt manner that I found so refreshing told me it plainly meant “propaganda”, if you wanted to be polite, and “bullshit”, if you wanted to tell it like it really is.
