THIS is the resume of prominent conservative writer Ben Shapiro.
THIS is what he wrote in his latest column:
Waltz with Bashir is an animated post-Zionist journey into the mind of a former IDF soldier who fought in the 1982 Lebanon War. It follows his investigation into what really happened during the Lebanon War, and it culminates in the Sabra and Shatilla massacres, in which the Israeli Defense Forces failed to prevent Christian Phalangists from killing 700-800 Palestinians in those refugee camps. The Phalangist attack was a response to the Islamist killing of Lebanese President Bashir Gemayel.
The film neglects to mention that only 35 out of the 700-800 killed were women and children – the rest were men, which suggests that most of those killed were in fact members of the terrorist Palestine Liberation Organization.
This is your conservative mainstream media ladies and gentlemen. Soak it up and think about that for awhile.
NOTE: Shapiro wistful downplays Israel’s role in allowing and refusing to intervene in the Sabra and Shatilla massacres.
Before you start bitching about how Israel “is right” and/or “justified”, the Israeli government admitted they were partially responsible for the massacre in the 1983 Kadman report which lead to Ariel Sharon resigning as Defense Minster.
Also, Waltz with Bashir is written by Ari Folman a former Israeli Defense Force solider who was at the Sabra and Shatilla massacres. But hell, what does he know?
And to the CREDIT of the Israeli people, 300,000 people protested on the streets of Tel Avi in response to the massacres.
