If that isn't the Pot calling the Kettle a Poisoner of Wells...

Boker Tov Boulder had this lovely contribution this morning:

You don't have to be a genius to notice that everywhere the Palestinians go, a "civil war" just happens to break out.

See Jordan; see Lebanon; see Gaza.

Not to be a Devil's Advocate/Palestinian apologist (Heaven forfend), but this was a little too reminiscent of the kind of moronic thinking that's so common among Internet trolls and antisemites. For example:

Here is a list where Jews have been Expelled since AD250

You have to ask yourself, why?


there must be a reason they have been kicked out of every country they have ever been in.


Why were the Jews always picked on and persecuted far more than any other group? Why did everyone else always hate them? Why have they been kicked out of virtually every country in Europe during the past thousand years: out of England and Spain and Portugal and France and Sweden and Germany and a dozen other countries and told never to come back, only to sneak back in and then be kicked out again? The Jews will tell you that it was Christian bigotry. But Christian bigotry cannot explain why the Egyptians threw them out of Egypt more than a thousand years before Christ, and it cannot explain why the pagan Greeks and Romans hated them.

Just some food for thought. Not trying to be too hard on BTB, but this isn't the first time this kind of weird pseudo-logic's reared its head over there.
