The third threat comes from campaigns to undermine Israel's legitimacy as a Jewish state and the homeland of the Jewish people. This is being carried out on a global scale through a combination of Arab propaganda; the hate-filled anti-Semitic attacks; and the "mainstreaming" of leftist "anti-imperialist" narrative, which views Israel not as a reincarnation of the ancient Jewish state, but as European "colonialism." This is where anti-Zionism seamlessly merges with anti-Semitism.
This is bull! Even Alan Dershowitz openly writes that criticism of the policies of the state of Israel does not necessarily constitute anti-Semitism (anti-Jew).
Ariel Cohen is writing against propaganda by employing negative propaganda (lies). Not only is he wrong about what I just mentioned, but also repeats the incorrect translation of Ahmadinejad, claiming that he said "wipe Israel off the map" when he did not say that at all. He said, "een rezhim-e eshghalgar-e qods bayad az safheh-ye ruzgar mahv shavad." Which translates as, "this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the page of time." He was not making a threat. This Cohen person has heard that but continues using the false translation, because he hates the truth and wants the U.S. to attack Iran for Israel. I say to hell with that!
Cohen also says Iran wants to attack Israel with a nuclear weapon. Why does he lie about that? Why is he, along with so many other Likudniks, echoing the same Big Lie?
Certain Israelis have huge military and other ambitions in the region. They want an old fashioned, unenlightened, Empire. It's sick. Their evil vision is hereby summarily rejected. We will have none of it.
Ariel Cohen, you lose because you are a liar just as your fathers before you going all the way back to the liar in the beginning. You are the same kind of liar Jesus spoke of in the New Testament. You better turn, repent, and atone. You better get some shame. You better get your conscience working so you'll stop spreading iniquity.
