Open Letter to a Good Liberal

Last night, I talked with yet another good liberal who claimed to be for human rights, and then at some point asked, why did I say I was against the way Israel was commonly put down. . . 

You say you care about human rights - but at the same time you're for regimes with atrocious human rights records - you don't seem to care about that. You claim to be for those you call Palestinians, without caring about the human rights abuses of their governments, or that 70% of the population elected a terrorist group as their government, or that the Hamas charter calls for the utter destruction of Israel.

It doesn't sound to me like a lot of concern for human rights.

You bring up Egypt, are against Sisi's ousting of Morsi from power in Egypt - undemocratic! - though Morsi was increasingly going against human rights, like the freedom of religion of non-Muslims, and was implementing sharia against the wishes of much of the population. You keep saying, Morsi was democratically elected - without caring about human rights, or recognizing that Hitler was democratically elected (though only by about 30% of the population). Anyway, human rights don't seem to count for much.

To me, it sounds like, once again, the road to hell is paved with what sounds like good intentions - and with a disregard for facts. To be for human rights means you actually need to face facts. Good intentions are not enough.

A hope: that you look into this, that you explore more, like the facts of Morsi's increasing human rights abuses, and of Sisi's much better (though still far from adequate) human rights record.

By the way, do you know that the only country in the Middle East with religious freedom is Israel? Do you know that Muslims may freely practice their religion there? Do you know Israel is also the only Middle Eastern country with a growing Christian population - and where Christians are treated as equals?

Male female equality. Gay rights. In the Middle East, you'll only find it in Israel.


A big temptation for all of us - not to search out the facts enough, not to see if we're just accepting what we're told by those around us - whether they're for buying big cars, or whether they're accepting human rights abuses.


Al Gore's film on the environment - which you say you care about - has a great title - An Inconvenient Truth. My experience: there are far more inconvenient truths that so many people ignore - especially those who consider themselves good liberals, or environmentalists.

I mention 2 videos. You haven't heard of them:

Not Evil, Just Wrong - very enlightening re what is wrong in the Al Gore film.

Then FrackNation - which is brilliant at tearing apart what is presented in the popular GasLand. Every honest anti-fracking person needs to see it.

You give the quick standard response to my bringing up FrackNation: it must be funded by big oil money to silence the truth. The opposite is the truth, to the best of my knowledge: I've read that money from Saudi Arabia and Columbia (oil-producing countries with vested anti-fracking interests) went into GasLand. And FrackNation was crowdfunded.

The opposite of what's expected. I don't know if that will get any hearing.


I feel a lot of gratitude to have had my father with his passionate concern for justice and human rights.

A hope: that those who consider themselves good liberals will seek out better sources of information. Lots and lots is available.

For me, this is so vital - or we may put our energy on the side of destructive forces, instead of good.

As the old saying goes, the road to hell is paved with good intention. Please, check out which road you're on.

 

And then a bit of time slipped by, and I came to more thoughts. It's so easy to say: the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I also see a blindness to facts - and instead adherence to politically correct positions. Why? I think most people are a bit lazy, and it's easier not to check up on things. Group-think is something else powerful for many people - it's much easier not to check on the group's accepted truths. On some level, cowardice can also play a role: it can be unpleasant to go against the group, and scary to stand up against Islam.
