Palestinian Yogi Bear Cartoon

Alec Weisman, Editor-in-Chief

While listening to J.J. Surbeck, the Executive Director of T.E.A.M (Training and Education About the Middle East) speak during the Tritons for Israel “Israel Update” today, I realized that he made a valid point that anti-Israel individuals often forget who started/initiated the wars with Israel in 1948, 1956, 1967, & 1973. The way he mentioned reminded me of the style of talking of Yogi Bear, and 40 minutes later, viola…

    racist much?

    This is not “art” nor “silliness”, this is racism.

  3. I don’t see this racist at all… What I do see this as …a bash on YOGi THE BEAR~!!! What the FUCK! ….Yogi the bear is my hero asshole!

  4. Also the comments above…I have no idea how you see this as racist. If you do please explain with racist…i mean politically correct mind.

  5. I’m amused by the fact that those who seem to “not understand how these things are racist” seem to always have names like “ron”

  6. The point that Alec was trying to make and which of course “ron” completely missed was that when the Palestinians tell their version of the facts (their so-called “narrative”, i.e. re-writing history), they conveniently “forget” to mention that in all the wars mentioned above, they and their Arab “brethren” are the ones who attacked or threatened Israel first. History shows that every time one group attacked another, it ended up in only one of two ways: either they won, or they lost. The Palestinians and the Arabs attacked and lost. Several times. End of story. There is no point making up stories about “wars” that happened out of nowhere, as if no one started them. But that kind of absurdity doesn’t seem to bother them. Next time you walk by one the Justice for Palestine booths or any other like that, pick up their literature and read how they describe what happened. It if so far off from reality that it’s funny. All the more reason to study the facts and be able to distinguish between truth and lies. And in my experience, the Palestinians have not told the truth very often. I wish they were more honest, but they don’t want to admit that they made big mistakes in confronting the Israelis. Fine. Be that way if you want, but don’t come complaining that things haven’t turned out the way you wanted.

  7. To J.J. With all due respect, do not lump in all Arabs with Palestinians. There are several nations in the Middle East other than Palestine in which the panethnic Arab people inhabit, which is who you are referring to when you actually use the term “Arab.” There are Arab Christians and Arab Jews as well as Arab Muslims. Your statement regarding Palestinians and Arabs implies that the entire Arabic speaking population colludes with Palestine in all of its warring actions, which is not true. I understand the point you are trying to make, but be careful with your terminology.
