We've looked before at sixth-rate "academic" Juan Cole before. We've shown him to be a liar a number of times. He twists statistics, and sometimes he just makes them up.
Cole lies as easily as he breathes. And he never corrects his lies, a sure sign of someone for whom ideology trumps facts.
Now he is justifying terrorist acts and blaming the victims, all the while pretending that he isn't doing exactly that:
"The kidnapping and killing of three Israeli squatter youth whose parents usurped Palestinian land has produced a paroxysm of hatred and calls for reprisals in Israel. Whoever is responsible for it, the killing of the youth was a horrid and inexcusable crime, and the heart of any parent goes out to the bereaved families."
Sure. The bereaved "squatters" who "usurped" Palestinian land and oxygen.
Juan Cole really is all heart by way of his spleen. His heart goes out to the people whose murder he just justified. But it's so small that no one noticed it stroll by.
Is "squatter" the new political term that supporters of Islamic colonialism like Juan Cole are using to delegitimize the indigenous Jewish population of Israel?
Speaking of which, Juan Cole squats in Ann Arbor, Michigan, usurping the land of the Sauk people.
Cole then runs through the now familiar list of terrorist apologist talking points.
1. Who says Hamas is even responsible
2. Israel made Hamas do it
The second point contradicts the first, but making no sense is not a problem for Juan Cole.
1. I didn't do it
2. You made me do it
That covers the terror apologist approach to everything from 9/11 to the latest terror attack.
