Turkey's Prime Minister Erdogan recently said: just because someone criticizes Israel does not mean they are anti semitic. Does this then mean that Time Magazine's Tim McGirk is not an anti-semite? I don't think so.... Tim has come to Israel from Iraq, a place where Sunnis and Shiites slaughter each other in the tens of thousands, where acid is thrown into the faces of children, where so many Palestinians have been threatened and attacked by Arabs that they call it: The Second Negba (catastrophe). Tim knows all this, yet he implies Isr aelis are: "devils" because they use phosphorus flares in their night operations. Rape is so common among Middle Eastern armies that it is almost considered "a tradition" (for example: the Turks raped Lawrence of Arabia), yet, while no Israeli has ever even been accused of rape in the last 60 years, Tim McGirk is horrified because a soldier wrote on some wall in Gaza: "you have nice underwear". Hamas has repeatedly declared 1) It wants to destroy Israel and will not give up terrorism 2) It will never recognize the Jewish State 3) It will not abide by previous agreements, yet, in the title of his article on George Mitchell, Tim asks: "Will Israel listen?". Egyptian border guards regularly shoot Sudanese refugees in the back only 100 meters from the freedom provided by the Israeli border, yet Tim McGirk doesn't even mention these events. Likewise, one week ago, Hamas shot over 150 Gazan men and women in the legs "to set an example to the P.L.O.", yet Tim does not feel the need to comment (obviously, these things aren't as news worthy as a woman's underwear). Time Magazine is anti Israel, Tim McGirk is an anti semite. The "time" has come to make a change: transfer Tim to Mecca or Rome.
