  • Elder of Ziyon
I mentioned previously that even educated Arabs, and many Israel bashers, look at the Arab-Israeli conflict as a zero-sum game, where anything good for Israel is bad for Arabs and vice-versa. Truly progressive people want to find "win-win" solutions where everyone ends up better off. True peace is "win-win," the "peace process" is guaranteed to be a win-lose.

Ronnie Kasrils, the "intelligence" minister for South Africa, has long berated Israel for many perceived crimes:
How much longer will the world permit Israel to get away with land theft and child murder? The sieges and check-points, the collective punishment and targeted executions, the house demolitions and ethnic cleansing...
Taking these absurd accusations at face value, one would think that Kasrils is against land theft, child murder, checkpoints, targeted executions and so on.

Yet now he is inviting Hamas leader Haniyeh to South Africa:
South Africa has invited Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas to visit this country, in what would be his first trip outside the Muslim world.

Haniyeh would like to meet Nelson Mandela during the trip, according to a Haniyeh aide.

The invitation was issued by Intelligence Minister Ronnie Kasrils, who met Haniyeh in Gaza City yesterday.

"We stand by you and support you," Kasrils said of the new Palestinian unity government, a coalition of Hamas and the Fatah movement of moderate Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Now, is Kasrils so uneducated as to not know that Hamas practices routine assassinations, targets Jewish children, steals land, encourages children to kill themselves, persecutes Christians, practices misogyny, condones "honor killings," shoots rockets indiscriminately at civilians, and who knows how many other crimes?

Of course he knows that. So it is clear that his problem is not with Israeli crimes, but with Israel itself. If it wasn't, he would be against Hamas' existence as he is against Israel's.

But his worldview, like the mentally defective Arab worldview, is that the conflict is a zero-sum game. And if he is against Israel, then he must be on the side of those who want to see Israel destroyed.

All his talk about Israel's "crimes" and "racism" is so much hypocrisy - his hate came way before his illogical justifications for that hate, and his invitation to a terror group to visit his nation as an honored member of the world community proves that beyond a doubt.
