The late Eric Breindel was a rarity among Journalists. He was friendly with liberal
Senator Pat Moynihan. Yet Monynihan was an old time liberal who recognized the danger
of Communist infiltration in America. Briendel worked for Moynihan and was well on his way to becoming a Neoconservative.
Briendel graduated from Hrvard in 1977. He went on to study at the London School for ecconomics and then Graduated from Harvard Law. Briendel was never healthy and had a variety of medical issuesthat were to plauge his short life.He was arrested for attempting to buy heroin in 1983. His chronic pain problems let to a dependence on pain killers. He first started writing Editorials for the NY Daily News. Ruppert Murdoch chose the young Briendel to run the NY Post editorial page. In 1991 he was diagnosed with cancer. In 1997 the Cancer returned and by 1998 we had lost a giant.
A collection of the best of his writing is in the book A Passion for the Truth. I recomend the Venonna Cables only to good liberals like Kafkaesq. Sometimes honest liberals forget the perfididty of the lies we were told by the left for years. Another reason is that the very people who tried to undermine this country in the Cold War are doing it again. People on the far left are seditious by nature and as internationalists their only loyalty is to the cause.
Of the Zionism is Racism debacle that the Recididope is fond of repeating. 11/12/87
"The Zionism is Racism resolution , after all was passed by a Soviet, Arab,Third World Coalition,the same bloc that dominates the world body today.And the resolution did , in fact, do abiding damage to the UN."
"Even Javiier Perez de Cuellar , the UN secretary general, apparently beleives that the 1975 resolution weakened the UN."
"I was a graduate student in England in the late 1970s, and I watched in amazement as left dominated student unions, in University after University throughout the country ,barred Israeli representitives from speaking on campuses.
The method used was always the same.Resolutions would be passed denying the podium to racists. It would the be asserted on the basis of the UN's Zionism resolution that the ban applied automatically to Zionists,that is Israelis.
This syndrome has manifested itself not just in England, but throughout Western Europe."
These same students never barred Comunists from speaking. Even in the 1970's free speech is reserved for whomever the left deems appropriate. Thus 100,000,000 dead under Marx was a meaningless number. The brutal human rights records of various other countries were not mentioned. Thus Israel alone is held to a unique standard.
This is by definition bigotry against the worlds only Jewish state.
The new concept as practiced by the Recididumbass is to deny the defense of Israel at all. He allows seditious left wing type Jooos like Viper 85 to affirm his lunacy.
This lunacy includes posting material that Joooos see non Joooos as the enemy and that Jooos are responsible for polution and alienation. In fact we are all Jooos defacto if we live in America. This is the lunacy of his initial Simon Jones post.
Yet these morons on the left claim that left wing lunatics like Kovell and Norman Finklestein speak for the majority of Joooos. In fact they speak largely for themselves.
Even in the 1970's the lefts corruption of the English language was underway. Muslims,Arabs and fictional Palestinians do not constitute a race in any definition.
The fact is that every one of Israel's neighbors except Lebanon has an official religion. We did deal with the issue of discrimination against Christians in Muslim Countries. Jews also do not constitue a racial group in any definition. Have the Falashas become martians ? What racial group are the bene Yisroel from India or the Sinlung from ?

"This condition,historically,is nothing new for Jews . Many times througout their history, Jews have been -to say the least vulnerable.And they hav've had no safe haven to which to flee.
What is different now ?
Zionism: the exsistence of a Jewish state. ......
Read the news reports,look at the photos,watch the film footage- one fact is plain: Notwithstanding any UN resolutions ( Or idiots on the mindless left) , Zionism- whatever else it may or may not be is not a form or racism"
