Controversy Alert

Defense Minister Ehud Barak:
"We won't allow anyone, of any dark corner of Israeli society, harass people, not in general and especially not when it comes to people with a voice as rare and clear as Ze'ev Sternhell's."

I want to make it clear that I am not advocating the use of violence against Prof. Ze'ev Sternhell, but it would behoove people to better know who he is, and his public calls for force, violence and the murder of Jewish Settlers.
(Hat tip to Lurker for the research).

What does the rare voice of Sternhell clearly have to say?

"Fascism cannot be stopped with rational arguments. This can be stopped only by force, and when there is willingness to risk a civil war. When necessary, we shall have to forcibly deal with the settlers in Ofra or in Elon Moreh. Only a person who is willing to advance against Ofra with tanks will be capable of curbing the fascist drift that threatens to inundate Israeli democracy."
- Zeev Sternhell, Davar newspaper, April 1988

(Talk about fascist ideas, that's the pot calling the kettle black.)

"There is no doubt regarding the legitimacy of the armed resistance in the territories themselves. If the Palestinians had a bit of sense, they would concentrate their struggle against the settlements. [...] They would similarly refrain from placing explosive charges on the western side of the Green Line."
- Prof. Zeev Sternhell, Haaretz, May 11, 2001

(in an article justifying Arab terror against settlers, calling upon the Arabs to murder settlers, and encouraging them to place explosive charges, but only on the eastern side of the Green Line).

Lots more Lefty quotes advocating violence against religious Jews and Settlers in an old post in the comments section over by the Muqata.

re: Sternhell's attitude, classic "projection" and McCarthyism for sure.

Sternhell is an israeli Patriot.

One of the great personalities and thinkers of the old times.

We need in Israel more and more like him, today.
