‘I didn’t think you could live much longer in that smoke, in that hellish place. And now I see it was so much worse for other people. So much worse.’
Your reporting is the single most impactful that I have seen. And I know you must be heartbroken on a personal level. Just know that there are legions of still sane, reasonable people who could not agree more that this barbarism is different and must be shown for the evil it is. I am not Jewish, but I stand firmly and unequivocally with the Jewish people and Israel. Thank you for doing such an amazing job in a time of horrific turmoil. We need more good journalism if civilization is to survive.
“That is why this story matters. Because this is not just a war in a faraway land; it’s a battle for civilization itself”
Too bad we went with ‘diversity is our strength’.
Bari- thank you so much for all you have done and are doing
I hope you will cover the Hamas supporters' US Capitol Insurrection today. I am sure they will be imprisoned for years, no bail and no trial. You know, like Insurrectionists deserve right?
Sam Harris recently said, “There are not many bright lines that divide good and evil in our world, but this is one of them.”
Sam Harris also said that he would happily support Biden if there were children's corpses in his basement. Did that bright line also divide good and evil?
I find that these defining battles are only halfheartedly fought if a full renunciation of the ideology that does the equivocating isn't on the table.
Sorry world, I have no sympathy for the Gazan Palestinians. Please, no more pictures of Palestinians mourning and wailing over the bodies and graves of dead family members. Even though Hamas is responsible for the planning and execution of the attack, it is the people in Gaza who assent to this tactic. Any society that teaches children in schools to hate and murder Jews does NOT deserve the benefit of the doubt. Their fate is in their own hands that are covered in blood by proxy.
I am NOT calling for genocide, even though these people are doing so in respect to Jews, but I AM calling for a "come to Mohamad" moment where they fully realize their own complicity in this murder spree, and the continued brain washing that they are assenting to, similar to what German citizens had to face after WW II.
As Bari said, "... societies in which the Jewish people are persecuted are societies in which no one is safe." Strange how I've never heard that said quite that way before, but my 50+ years of learning history tells me that is exactly right. Bravo, Bari, and please continue with the exceptional reporting on this war.
Keep telling the stories. The world needs to hear them.
Thank you for your continued service to freedom and values of the enlightenment. Happy subscriber from day one.
Exactly. I would never have guessed seeing women and babies killed for being Jewish would bring joy and celebrations to our streets. The snarky tweets, e.g., what did you think decolonialization meant? I'll answer. Evidently, it means you're a psychopath.
I’m getting really tired of hearing “elite” or any positive adjective being given to any institute of higher education when THIS RESPONSE is what is being produced...
Secretly the single dumbest thing happening is the neocon effort to connect the Ukraine conflict with the Palestine conflict.
I guess they think they can get more money by stapling them together. Nonetheless, telling Putin that your effort to defeat him is directly connected to Zionism, for no reason at all, is possibly the worst foreign policy idea in human history.
We need to have a strong statement from Congress which defines antisemitism based on the IHRA definition and includes the slogans “From the River to the Sea” and “there in only one solution .. “for what it is — hate speech and call for violence against Jews . No different than White Supremacist chanting “Jews will not Replace Us” or Nazi propaganda regarding the “final solution “.
It is protected speech and can’t be prevented . However , universities have rules against “hate speech”. Students running around campus chanting and posting those slogans should be treated no differently than White supremacist or Neo Nazis . At the very least , let’s inform all Americans what those slogans mean and make those students , professors and the Squad defend the speech. Put them on the defensive . See if they agree with a 2 state solution . The radicals will say they don’t .
As the Harvard situation and push back on the students proved , make students accountable for their words . While we are at it , they should post the Hamas Charter so people can see for themselves what Hamas is
It’s Armageddon folks. Good vs
evil; civilization vs barbarism. How pro-Hamas demonstrators deny the butchery in southern Israel, is beyond me. Hamas filmed the debauchery themselves. The camera doesn’t lie.
There's never enough dead Jews for the Jew haters.
Let's say Israel never responded to these attacks, what would the Jew haters say? That Israel should negotiate? That Israel should give something up to get hostages back? That Israel shouldn't be surprised because they're occupiers?
It will never be enough for the Jew haters, that's why it's better for Israel to do what they need to do because it's detractors won't stop till every Jew is dead and gone.
The hard truth is that there were times when whole swaths of the nation approved of slavery and people had to live with them and deal with the consequences. Today there are significant factions in society who do not just apologize ethnic cleansing and mass rape, but openly support such methods. If 6 million Jews were exterminated tomorrow there would be applause and jubilation in this country and around the world. We ae in a bad place and these issues are not going away.
