  • Sen. Fritz Hollings (D) releases statement that many call 'anti-Jewish'

       May 19, 2004

    Senator Fritz Hollings, D- SC, has released this statement charging that President Bush invaded Iraq for the sole purpose of securing Israel. Not surprisingly, the statement has been met with accusations that it is, in some way, anti-Jewish.

    While the validity of that claim seems dubious at best, I find this passage from Senator Holling's statement interestingly incorrect:


    With President Bush's domino policy in the Mideast gone awry, he keeps shouting, "Terrorism War." Terrorism is a method, not a war. We don't call the Crimean War with the Charge of the Light Brigade the Cavalry War. Or World War II the Blitzkrieg War.

    I don't know where the good Senator gets this - every time I have ever heard the President refer to it, he's called it "The War on Terrorism," not the "terrorism war." There would be nothing inaccuarate about referring to the wars that he's mentioned as examples as the "War on Calvaries" or 'The War on Blitzkriegs." (As silly as that sounds).

    My point is, Sen. Hollings got that fact blatantly wrong. How many other "facts" that he spouts are similarly incorrect?

    It is an anti-sementic. If this guy was a republican it would be the top story in every single news agency and people would be demanding he leave the Senate. His first name in Fritz of all things.

    you may be right about how it would be the top story if a republican made the statement, and in that case i would still fail to see how it's anti-Jewish at all.

    it alleges that bush invaded iraq in order to secure Israel. so what? if i allege that bush invaded iraq to secure donuts, how can that statement be said to be "anti-donut?"
