HPW: "Iran War Would Be Nightmare"

A bombshell was dropped on the Huffington Post yesterday, though fortunately not a literal one. You see, a prominent politician declared that a war with Iran would be a "nightmare." And which politician is that?

Uh oh. Now we have a problem. You see, the Huffington Posters hate Avigdor Lieberman (not to mention Israel in general) but they also hate the idea of war with Iran. So in the struggle of who to agree with, which wins out?

Well you'd be glad to know that they agreed with Lieberman, as much as it galled them to do so. A pretty large percentage of the Huffington Posters, though, simply refused to pick a side and launched into generic Israel-bashing, including some comments tinged with anti-Semitism. Here are some examples:

For this next one, we have the ever popular "let's get mad at Israel now for something they may do in the future" talking point:

Then more "criticism" of Israel's "policies."

  1. OT: over in HP's even more psychotic cousin, Salon, there's a brief piece on how the Latvians are commemorating the Nazis. This comment was a gem:

    It would happen in the US too if those Jews did not own the media. I am a progressive who is no fan of Israel and its influence upon our country. If you live in DC like me, you know when it comes to politics there are two sides of every issue, except one, Israel: Israel is our best and only true feind, and we MUST support it no matter what". TELL ME I AM WRONG. Jews in America make up less than 2% of the population, yet make up 46% of the millionairs. In America money has become all influencing. History repeats itself if you do not learn leesons, we have not. Thomas Jefferson spoke on this issue, and he is far wiser and knowledgeable than anyone here.

    Salon is a moderated blog.


Hey guys we've started to employ a slight comment policy. We used to have completely open comments but then people abused it. So our comment policy is such: No obvious trolling or spamming. And be warned: unlike the Huffington Post we actually enforce our comment policy.
