Wednesday, October 21st, 2009 21:11 p 48 Lord
Under the title “Science racism” newspaper “Maariv” to the racist statements for d. Hevtan Dan lecturer at the University of Tel Aviv in a special session before the “students” are the words of senior officials in the security services and political rights. The newspaper pointed out that the participants in the session listened to the comments racist insults against Arabs in the interior in particular, and Arabs in general.
It also quoted him as saying, “When Israel launches sophisticated satellites into space, the Arabs are coming out with a new type of chick peas.” The saying this in the context of explaining the theory of security in Israel in a program of diplomacy and security for senior managers. And the Iran-Iraq war, described as “seven years of fun,” and said he was “in the Arab world are shooting at weddings to prove, more from this source………..
I completly agree…even if these statements are made by the ugliest soul on earth, the soul of a quintessential sick animal-without-a-tail israeli orientalist...why should we be upset…we are people ruled by the most corrupted blood-sucking, sadomasachistic (sadist with us and masachist with their overseas lords), demented, ignorant and incapable gangs, deprived in body and mind, deformed in consciousness (we must erase this word from the Arabic dictionary…it is superfluous without a referent in the real world…our world)…
Now I have to say something to this idiot who said the Arabs are the grossest fuilure in the history of human beings. No failure equals the Israeli…your were f… up under a tolitarian rule in europe and the rule failed and you want to replicate it!!! how stupid is this? what failure is this? Einstein himself refused to join you doomed enterprience and Freud himself thought that you were theafts sealing even the moral innovatons of other people even the hummus you have stolen, the land, the water, resources of Palistine…you are a bunch of psychopath theaves and murdurers...everyone is against you because of your unethical immoral criminal actions…you killed children!!! what else you want to be convinced that you are shame of humanity.
