"Mainstream" of the Democratic Party? Daily Kos and the Death of Israel

Is this the future of the Democratic Party, announcing the inevitable destruction of the state of Israel?

Apparently, that's what
Daily Kos suggests, in a post that's tantamount to a death warrant for the Jewish state:

The Protocols of the Daily Kos

This insuperably hateful anti-Semitic screed has been denounced by Little Green Footballs as "The Protocols of the Daily Kos":

How low can Daily Kos go? Perhaps the most sickening, hate-filled antisemitic diary ever at Daily Kos: Daily Kos: Eulogy before the Inevitability of Self-Destruction: The Decline and Death of Israel.
Readers should please recognize that LGF does a phenemonal service in monitoring Daily Kos for demonstrations of the nihilist culture of death that it propagates.

Recall also, that Markos Moulitsas, the publisher of Daily Kos,
claims that his blog represents the "center" of the Democratic Party's contemporary ideological platform - Moulitsas' anti-Semitism is the "mainstream" of the progressive community.

This is
why I left the Democratic Party.

But don't take it from me. Get it straight from the Kos "

[The] State of Israel as the homeland for the "persecuted Jews" was envisioned by one man of Austria-Hungary origin, Theodor Herzl. He promulgated "If you will it, it is no dream." This will was achieved with the founding of the artificially created state under the mandate of the United Nations....
Note the scare quotes around "persecuted."

But check
the post. It gets more deathly evil futher down, for example, in implicitly blaming Israel for September 11:

Israel embody [sic] the vessel of boiling blood of horror and perfidy in demonic vileness for its pattern of terrorism and murder in the name of Zionist ideology.

A photo of the Twin Towers exploding in flames precedes this passage. But note further:

This is the bidding of a farewell formed in the extension of a middle finger by the militantly atheistic Luciferian Ashkenazic Jewish sect that - resolved they be - believe in - by genetic predisposition and/or indoctrination from birth - supremacism of the Master Race, because they have accomplished the goal of procreating State of Israel to dominate in hegemony by the art of seduction, after centuries of persecution and expulsion on charge of treason by subversion of host nations, blood rituals in human sacrifice of Gentile children, corruption and ravishing of women, conspiracy to injure and murder esteemed officers & rulers and usurious & fraudulent deed in union with the spiritual descendants of the wicked Jews of the extinct Sadducee sect, the persecutor and abetted executioner of Jesus Christ, propagating fruition of the species as the "Chosen One" and bringing the world to its knees without mercy for subservience and obedience by slavery (brainwash) and tyranny....

As Israel reach [sic] the milestone of the 60th anniversary commemoration, its legacy will be showered not with peace and goodwill but revulsion of conscience and damnation.

Israel is "Lucifer"? Israel be damned?

That's all I care to cite, as this is sickening. It's almost unbelievable that one should see this posted at what's considered the most important left-wing blog on the web.

As noted at the Kos post, we are at a time of the 60th commemoration of the founding of the Jewish homeland, and given views such as these, the nation's prosperity and survival is an even greater phenomenon.

Mortimer Zuckerman, in his essay, "Israel's Historic Achievement," notes this:

This is a story without parallel, of a love of a people for the land of Israel. In this land in ancient times, the Jewish people were born. In this land in modern times, the Jewish people were reborn. They have never left Israel voluntarily and returned when they could, from more than a hundred countries speaking more than 80 languages, a modern-day gathering of the exiles. More than 3,000 years earlier, Moses had prophesied, "Even if you have been banished to the most distant land under the heavens, from there the Lord your God will gather you and bring you back." And so it was.

But Zuckerman also reminds us:

The refusal to accept the existence of Jews in a separate state of Israel is worse than anti-Semitism. It is, as former Canadian Minister of Justice Irwin Cotler described it, "a genocidal anti-Semitism, the public calls for the destruction of Israel and the Jewish people," wherever they may be. Listen to the state-sanctioned genocidal anti-Semitism in Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Iran, made clear by the publicly avowed intent to acquire nuclear weapons for this purpose. It is in the language of the covenants, charters, platforms, and policies of the terrorist movements and militias of Hamas, Islamic Jihad, Hezbollah, and al Qaeda, which call not only for the destruction of Israel and the killing of Jews but also for acts of terrorism in furtherance of that objective, supported by religious fatwas in which these genocidal calls are held out as religious obligations. All this comes from a culture that greets brutal deeds of terrorism with glee and celebrates martyrs and their families.

And genocidal anti-Semitism is also found on the pages of Daily Kos.

This is why I blog.

Please distribute this post widely, and consider supporting John McCain in the fall.
