- Cohen and glib self justification
Posted by Neil on November 12, 2010, 3:13 am, in reply to "Cohen: “The attempted Arab invasion of Israel in 1967 … ”"
Cohen, as with similar commentators and so many throughout MSM and academia, spends time and energy exclaiming erroneous generalisations that wilfully obfuscate and misrepresent the facts to accord with their worldview.
This is done effortlessly as the generalisations are spun around current and recent events; a whole fantasy world of self justification can be manufactured as much for the benefit of the individual, such as Cohen in this case, as for edification of their readers.

Menahem Begin: "In June 1967, we again had a choice. The Egyptian Army concentrations in the Sinai approaches do not prove that Nasser was really about to attack us. We must be honest with
ourselves. We decided to attack him." Chomsky - Fateful Triangle
Yitzhak Rabin, Israel's Chief of Staff in
1967 : "I do not think Nasser wanted war. The two divisions he sent to The Sinai would not have been sufficient to launch an offensive war. He
knew it and we knew it.", Le Monde 1968.
