..."To put the matter as starkly as possible: from the standpoint of Marxism and international socialism an illiterate, conservative, superstitious Muslim Palestinian peasant who supports Hamas is more progressive than an educated liberal atheist Israeli who supports Zionism (even critically)."...See also:
It is a question of a victim centred worldview. Palestinian butchery is supposedly a result of their victimization by the Jews. Since the Jews are central to hegemonic Western culture, their victimizarion doesn't count.
Only a critique of victimary thinking that takes hold widely can overcome the leftist logic in which anything the Palistinians do can be explained away in terms of the victimhood that dives them crazy. As is, the more outrageous their crimes, the more it proves they are the victims.
BTW, no animal has anything like the resentment found among the Palestinians. An animal would have no problem turning away from a foe that beats him. The only way to overcome this terminal resentment is through some kind of spiritual conversion. Otherwise, such cultures can easily suicide, which is more likely than "taking responsibility" for themselves. And the more it is clear that the arab world is involved in suicide, the more the left will think their victimization is proven. So the left too needs a spiritual transformation, away from their corruption of the originally Christian centralization of the innocent victim.
