As you are probably not surprised to hear, he denies that there are even people who are trying to delegitimize Israel in the first place, and still clings to the obvious untruth that there are only "critics" of Israel's "occupation." Apparently he doesn't read much Ahmed Moor or Sharmine Narwani. But even more amusing is that even though he denies that Israel can be delegitimized, he also blames Netanyahu for it. Sound crazy? Read his words for yourself:
"The whole concept of "delegitimization" seems archaic. Israel achieved its "legitimacy" when the United Nations recognized it 63 years ago....In that context, the whole idea of "delegitimizing" Israel sounds silly. Israel can't be delegitimized.[Later]"The leading delegitimizer is Binyamin Netanyahu, whose contemptuous rejection of peace is turning Israel into an international pariah."Right, so Israel can't be delegitimized, except by people that MJ Rosenberg doesn't like. I think it's fairly obvious here that Rosenberg just doesn't know what "delegitimize" actually means, nor is particularly inclined to know. To him it is just another talking point upon which to throw his usual garbage. I am not even going to bother proving Mr. Rosenberg wrong about the existence of the delegitimization movement, as anyone with half a brain and an understanding of what the "Zionism is racism" slogan means should be able to figure that out on his or her own.
I'll just highlight again Mr. Rosenberg's endless refrain: that the Jews controlling America:
"Sure, Netanyahu received an embarrassing number of standing ovations when he spoke before the United States Congress. But that demonstrates nothing except the power of the lobby....The only thing we learned (yet again) from Netanyahu's reception by Congress is that money talks. What else is new?"Indeed, the Jews control America through their Jew money. What else is new indeed?
"Israel's problem is the occupation, the Israeli government that defends it, and the lobby that enforces support for it in Congress and the White House."When it comes to MJ Rosenberg, there is nothing new. Just the same old conspiracy theories. I guess not even the Huffington Post is sick of it yet.
