Is Applying Libertarian Principles to Israel Anti-Semitic?

Via filipeabrantes

A ler, por "Carol Moore is a 25 year member of the Libertarian Party, a long-time peace activist, and founder of several sites including Secession.Net, WhatWouldGandhiDo.Net, Non-Intervention.Net. She is also webmaster for Libertarians for Peace and Pro-Choice Libertarians. See her other web sites, published and online articles, photographs, etc. atCarolMoore.Net."

Contém uma conhecida citação de Murray N Rothbard:

"In “Pat Buchanan and the Menace of Anti-Anti-Semitism” (1990) Rothbard railed against “the cruel despotism of Organized Anti-Anti-Semitism,” stating: “Wielding the fearsome brand of ‘Anti-Semite’ as a powerful weapon, the professional Anti-Anti-Semite is able, in this day and age, to wound and destroy anyone he disagrees with by implanting this label indelibly in the public mind. How can one argue against this claim, always made with hysteria and insufferable self-righteousness? To reply ‘I am not an anti-Semite’ is as feeble and unconvincing as Richard Nixon's famous declaration that ‘I am not a crook.’"

E começa por citar um grande discurso de George Washington

"Excessive partiality for one foreign nation and excessive dislike of another cause those whom they actuate to see danger only on one side, and serve to veil and even second the arts of influence on the other. Real patriots who may resist the intrigues of the favorite are liable to become suspected and odious, while its tools and dupes usurp the applause and confidence of the people to surrender their interests." George Washington’s 1796 Farewell Address
