“Morally Reprehensible and Strategically Idiotic”

The following video is excerpted from a debate hosted by Intelligence Squared on January 15 in London, on the topic: “Israel Is Destroying Itself With Its Settlement Policy: If Settlement Expansion Continues Israel Will Have No Future”. It shows Caroline Glick’s spirited argument against the motion.

This video surfaced immediately after our Nakba (the takedown last Saturday by Google at our old site) and was posted by Vlad during our Hijra (the migration to our new location here). I was preoccupied with moving house, and before I could get around to posting the video, Vlad received a request to subtitle it in Russian. He asked for my help, and we arranged for the translation.

So, to kill two birds with one stone, here is the presentation by Caroline Glick in English, subtitled in Russian. Many thanks to DarLink for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:

  1. Ms. Glick later said of her U.K. visit:
    “I was prepared to conduct a civilized debate based on facts and reasoned argumentation. I expected it to be a difficult experience. I was not expecting to be greeted by a well-dressed mob. My pessimism about Europeans’ capacity to avail themselves to reasoned, fact-based argumentation about Israel has only deepened from the experience.”
    “The discourse is owned by anti-Israel voices. They don’t make arguments to spur thought, but to end it, by appealing to people’s passions.”

  2. What a speech, what morality and rationality. She speaks for me, she speaks for most American, Jewish and not.

    Unfortunately, give the antisemitic state of most of the rest of the world, I’m afraid she doesn’t speak for Europe – and they will ultimately pay the price for ignoring the canary in the coal mine.

  3. “What is being touted as a ‘cease-fire’ is something called a ‘hudna.’ A hudna [also known as a hudibiyya or khudaibiya] is a tactical cease-fire that allows the Arabs to rebuild their terrorist infrastructure in order to be more effective when the “cease-fire” is called off.” — “Cease-fire?” by Shira A. Drissman

    Truces, Arab Style

  4. to paraphrase

    If Israel continues to expand, it will cease to exist,
    If it shrinks to nothing, it will survive for eternity.

    The logic of the Left is wondrous to behold.

  5. i am absolutely in agreement with you. the only reason that the PLO / Arab world gets away with all their lies, treachery, mass murders are that we are JEWS. keep up your good work, we need many more voices such as yours.

  6. The Video – Caroline trying to reason with people who can’t be bothered to listen.
    They’re too busy gleefully counting their Saudi Oil Money,
    with which they’ve just been bought and paid for.
