MSNBC’s designated Israel hit-man, Ayman Mohyeldin is at it again! Reporting in the aftermath of the terrorist attack in Tel Aviv that killed four innocent Israeli citizens on Wednesday, Mohyeldin said he was putting the attack in context, and blamed the attack on the Israeli Government.
“the shift of Israeli politics, including now the current government more to the right to what has been described by Israelis as even more of a extreme right-wing government, some of the measures that have taken place in the West Bank, the siege that continues in Gaza, all of those continue to fester.”
Notice when he says things like that he never describes what he means by “the measures,or “extreme” or “right wing”? He possibly means the fact that Avigdor Lieberman and his party Yisrael Beiteinu rejoined the government and was installed as defense minister eight days before the attack. The only change in defense policy Lieberman installed so far was to approve equal rights for the bereaving families of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender soldiers, not really an “extreme right-wing” program.
By calling Lieberman right-wing was the MSNBC “reporter” talking about the fact that he is a supporter of the two-state solution? Perhaps it’s his position about reducing the role of the rabbinical system in legal matters such as marriage, and death. He also has an interesting idea about peace negotiation (which I don’t agree with) Lieberman has called for a territory exchange—redraw the border between Israel and the West Bank so that Israel would include large Jewish community blocs and the Palestinian state would include large Arab-Israeli population centers. Maybe Mohyeldin says that the new defense minister is right wing because of his proposal for a “no loyalty – no citizenship” policy which he described asrequiring new citizens to take a loyalty oath, similar to the U.S. “In the U.S., those requesting a Green Card must take an oath that they will fulfill the rights and duties of citizenship,”
After trying to label the Israeli government (which is “right-wing” in supporting free enterprise) MSNBC’s Mohyeldin continued with talking about the “occupation”…
