BARNS STORM: Lashing Israel will discourage terror attacks argues paid ABC columnist

On the taxpayer funded ABC website, Greg Barns argues that the government’s decision to expel an Israeli diplomat would help appease home grown terrorist attacks.

Apparently it is cost-effective too!

In fact, this one action of standing up to Israel might do more good in reducing home grown extremism than the $9.7 million the Rudd government announced on May 11 it was throwing at the issue.

Barns who once admitted to drinking …. hmmm … too much as a chief of staff to a senior Howard Minister, also ran the unsuccessful Republican campaign in 1999. He has also been paid up and proud member the Australian Democrats, of blessed memory. He has appeared as a barrister to defend an alleged jihadist in the 2008 Melbourne terrorist trail.

Those who allegedly plot mass murder certainly deserve the quality skills of learned men and women like Greg Barns. No-one wants a miscarriage of justice.

But has Barns overdosed on Edward Said?

Of course, some will argue that what Mr Smith did makes not an iota of difference to those in the community who are intent on carrying out terrorist attacks. That is true, but it misses the point, which is of course why would the Australian government make it easier for such people to recruit disillusioned or alienated young Muslims by turning a blind eye to Israel’s latest outrage?

In the pathology of terrorism, Australia’s close relationship with the democratic and secular State of Israel in a see of racist hostility is marginal.

If it is legitimate to consider the link between Australia’s foreign policy with the US and Israel and the recruitment of terrorists, then it is just as legitimate to consider the impact of the cognoscenti in fostering an anti-Israeli, some would say, anti-Semitic atmosphere in academia and the media.

Surely some of the roots of disillusionment and alienation among young Muslims and their hostility towards Israel lie in long history of anti-Semitism towards Israeli efforts to defend itself and a longer history to marginalise Jewish influence in Western society since a certain Corsican emancipated Jews in the 1804 Code Napoleon.

The campaign to marginalise Jews, especially Jewish Israeli in the Western world continues today. For instance, in Europe and Australia there is a petition to boycott all cultural and research ties with Israel in our universities. (VEXNEWS looks forward to reporting on the similar boycotts to Iran, Syria, China, North Korea, Venezuela and Zimbabwe)

For some in the media, to delegitimiae Israel is just good journalism. For example the Guardian recently reported of Israeli-Apartheid South African collusion without seeking official Israeli comments before publication – a report whose documentation does not support the allegations of nuclear proliferation against Israel.

To the anti-Semitic left, the only ‘rogue’ state in the world is Israel; yet, they taks no responsibility for creating an intellectual climate ripe for Islamist hate.

Barns crows the diplomatic expulsion demonstrates that ‘Israel is not above the law; well, this time anyway’.

By implication, Barnes argues Israel and the Israeli lobby has been and will be above the law.

This socialism of fools – where Jews are always the barrier towards the brotherhood of nations – is perverse.

Mr Barns, who is really making it easier for jihadist recruitment drives?

    greg barnes is one of those who promised so much but has delivered so little – a brillant career reduced to gutter crawling with dinner partying lefties

    “In the pathology of terrorism, Australia’s close relationship with the democratic and secular State of Israel in a see of racist hostility is marginal”. – (Shouldn’t that be ‘sea’ not ‘see’)

    A little bit of proof-reading wouldn’t hurt Nick!!

    If only we had appeased Hitler more, think of how many lives could have been saved…

  5. anon

    Back in a sec just got to pop to the lavvy to give birth to another Israelite.

    i really feel sorry for you nick. if colin and his clique could just keep their mouths shut for one second, then perhaps the rest of us could take them seriously, instead they bang on about how unjust things are for them.
    i suppose the next time israel (aka murder inc) have more dirty work to do, they can call on you to provide your passport to travel unsuspectingly

    In response to Hmmm’s comments on this post.
    In the words of Dan Lewis himself;
    “your sub-literate spray stands as further proof there is a direct correlation between poor education and hatred of Jews, sorry “Zionists”.
    How do your words taste now Danny Boy?
    Now we are all confused!? LOL

    Of course ‘anon’ won’t put his name to his comments. But being the detritus of toilet wipes can’t be popular in anyone’s league. I’d like to see your puny repropductive organs shrink when faced with the power of Mossad and an inteligence agency which is proactive against terrorists and killers. What a twerp.

  9. anon

    Off again to drop a big stinking steaming Israelite in the dunny.

  10. Butler

    Mossad, isn’t that another name for shark shit?

    Mick, I hate to point it out to an obvious moron, but there is a big difference between typos and functional illiteracy.

    I have no idea what point you were trying to make, but uh, congratulations.
