Believer In Shapeshifting Reptilian Space Beings Calls Israeli Government “Insane”

The relevant part is from 17:38.

AARON MATÉ: Alice Walker, on the issue of Israel and Palestine, you traveled to Gaza. Now, that’s a place that most Americans, and especially most prominent American authors, never see. So, what led you to go to Gaza?

ALICE WALKER: Well, it’s a place in the world that is deeply suffering, and it’s a long, you know, suffering, as it’s over 60 years. It just smells, you know. I mean, the whole way that the state of Israel came into being, you know, what happened there? What happened with the Six-Day War? I mean, what—all of those things. And I think the fact that I had married a Jewish person drew me to a deeper interest in just what the dynamics were. And we differed, me and this wonderful person that I married. We differed on this. But I had to go and see for myself. And I have. And I’ve been, you know, in that area a few times. And the last time I tried to get there, through Greece, we were turned back. But my heart is very much with the Palestinians, and also with the Israelis who understand the problem and who have worked perhaps harder than anyone to try to change it. And I’m thinking now of Nurit Peled-Elhanan, who is this wonderful woman who has done so much work to show how in Israeli—in Israeli textbooks, the Israeli children are actually indoctrinated into thinking of the Palestinians as people who have no right to even be in their own land. They are taught that they are foreigners, and not only foreigners, but invaders, and that it’s their duty, as soon as they get big enough, to join the army and to fight and destroy them. I mean, this is—you know, this is something that most Americans don’t think about, and by now, they don’t have a lot of time, I guess, to think about other people’s problems. But because we support Israel so wholeheartedly, it’s very important that we pay attention, and also because Israel has nuclear weapons. And it’s a very unstable government and a very—you know, not very sane one, in my opinion

Besides the laughable statement at the end, if she thinks there are issues with the way Israel was established (through a vote at the UN),  the Six-Day War (Israel preemptively striking the Arab states about to try for another Final Solution) and Israeli textbooks (has she seen the palestinian ones lately?), her belief in reptilian overlords is par for the course.

    I agree with your take on Alice Walker completely, Dave. She really is off her rocker when it comes to Israel. Her analysis isn’t even rational or reality-based. But she is so far left even lefties like me don’t consider her part of the American liberal political community. She’s more radical left. I bet she’s not even a Democrat or votes for Democrats.

    1. She is a left winger, yes. No different than the current president of the U S and several of his closest advisors.
      I don’t equivocate here, her political philosophy approximates B H Obama.

      Somehow, I don’t see this woman in the ballot box rooting for tea party conservatives. She identifies with the democratic party and votes for democratic candidates – period.

      P S, that means her anti Israel view is shared by a whole lot of democratic party liberals.

        I don’t know where you get your information, Curtis, but you’re completely wrong. Alice Walker, if she votes at all, probably goes with the Greens, Socialist Workers or Communists, not the Democrats. And just because a lot of us liberal Democrats are opposed to Netanyahu’s West Bank policies, doesn’t make us anti-Israel. Tzipi Livni and Yair Lapid oppose those policies as well, does that make them anti-Israel too?

        1. What actually is his West Bank policy? To not give in to the corrupt, Holocaust denying Mahmoud Abbas’s outrageous demands?

          1. Jim from Iowa

            That’s a great question Travis. Netanyahu’s West Bank policies are all at once contradictory, incongruous, incomprehensible and indefensible. At least the religious zealot settlers know what they want all the time. Abbas is pretty pathetic as a peace partner. But that doesn’t make Bibi into Mahatma Ghandi.

            1. Considering Mahatma Gandhi advocated surrender to the Nazis, thank God that Netanyahu isn’t him. Love the way you describe Jews living in Judea as fanatic Zealots, I guess Arabs living in Nazareth, Israel can be described the same way.

            2. It really irritates the hell out of me when people use the words “settlers” and “settlements” when referring to long term residents that are living in towns and cities in Judea and Samaria!!

              I have friends living there (and a daughter who lives in Jerusalem) and not one of them could be described as a “zealot”!! They are very patriotic Israelis and strong Zionists who know that the only way to have peace is to build a strong Israel that would include ALL of Israel including Judea, Samaria and a united Jerusalem as its capital!! They know that the so-called “two-state solution” is an oxymoron and a farce. It is just a palliative to lull its supporters in and out of Israel into a sense that the non-existent “peace process” has a goal. But that goal is a fake and has been since it was first proposed. The Arabs don’t want two states; they want only one Arab state and no Israel at all!!! And after they have that, they want to kill all the other Jews as well as force Sharia law on the West.

              1. Jim from Iowa

                How patriotic are the Israelis who attack members of the IDF or spray paint ugly epithets on Christian places of worship, or uproot olive groves harvested by Arabs for generations or slash tires or worse to intimidate local populations? I am not talking about even most Israelis who live in the West Bank. But there are a significant number who are religious zealots, who give Israel a black eye by their criminal acts, and who are trying to undermine Israel as a democratic, secular state.

                I am descended from Iowa farmers who settled the land as homesteaders. Settler is not a pejorative term in my opinion.

                1. There are over 650,000 Israelis living in Judea/Samaria/Jerusalem and there are sure to be some dishonorable people among them that you could probably classify as zealots. But you lumped the entire Jewish population together and called them “religious zealots”!! That is just wrong on many levels.

                  The very vast majority of Israelis are peaceful, hardworking people that are constantly having to deal with Arabs destroying their crops, particularly trees, and personal attacks that they have to deal with without the help of the IDF!! How do you know it was the Israelis who spray-painted graffiti on churches? No doubt because you read it in a paper like Ha’aretz which is totally biased and worthless as a news source. Invariably, I have found, that reprehensible acts are done by Arabs and blamed on Jews or are completely and deliberately fabricated. Perhaps you should go to HonestReporting.com and check these out for yourself. And if you really want an eye-opener, go to PalestinianMediaWatch.com and see the difference between what Arabs say to themselves and what they say to Westerners, particularly their misguided supporters.

                  Finally, you know damn well that the term “settler” is used to imply that the Jews’ being on their own land are recent and impermanent. When your ancestors went to Iowa, the term “settler” had a very different meaning. You showed the same deliberate blindness when you used the term “west bank” and were told that it was offensive to some people, yet you still insisted that since it was in common use, you would continue to use it. While I’m on the subject, the terms “occupy” and “occupation” are just as offensive, if not more so. Just an FYI.

                  1. Jim from Iowa

                    Wow, you said a mouthful. It’s amazing how you know my intent by the language I use. Language, mind you, that is commonly used throughout the world when discussing Israel and the Mideast. What is loaded, pejorative and insulting in your mind, happens to work to support your own political point of view. I don’t demand that you use language that subscribes to my political point of view. And you think Ha’aretz has an anti-Israel bias and that Honest Reporting is a straight-shooter and doesn’t have an agenda? Please.

                    1. I’ll bet that you didn’t bother to actually check out Honest Reporting; you just assume that because it is pro-Israel, it is full of lies, just like the Arab organizations are. It does indeed have an agenda; it is to demonstrate, example by example, how the facts have been manipulated whenever the subject is Israel! They cover media from all over the world.

                      In fact, an Arab journalist just wrote an article that stated that almost all Arab media are politicized with no objectivity whatsoever! This lack of objectivity is not just when the subject is Israel, it is also used against other Arabs. If you want, I’ll get you the details so you can read it for yourself.

        2. Yes, Tzipi Livni and Yair Lapid are anti-Israel but not because of how they feel about Netanyahu’s policies. They are anti-Israel because they support the PA which, by its own charter that has not changed from the original PLO charter, aims to destroy Israel and REPLACE it with “Palestine”!! The PA has a “one-state solution”; just look at their maps and tell me where Israel is.

          I hate Netanyahu’s policies because of how he’s willing to pretend that the PA is a committed “peace partner” and wants to give away Israel’s land, even including part of our beautiful Jerusalem, to create yet another enemy country where Jews will be forbidden to live! (I bet you didn’t know that if an Arab in the PA-controlled territory sells land to a Jew, that it is a death penalty crime!) I hate the way that Netanyahu has commanded the IDF NOT to protect Israeli residents of Judea/Samaria from rock throwing and Molotov cocktail throwing Arabs because of the god-damned media’s pro-Palestinian coverage!! The soldiers are not even allowed to protect themselves! (Just last week a soldier lost an eye because of a rock-throwing Arab kid!) If you don’t know that all textbooks in the PA schools teach the children to hate Israel and that it is a good thing to kill Jews, I suggest you check it out. The PA honors terrorist murderers of innocent civilians!!! Israel can not make peace as long as the Arabs are taught nothing but hate and lies about, not only Israel but about themselves as well!! And that traitor Peres, who is practically begging Abbas to take our land, got nothing but support from Netanyahu!! Unlike Livni and Lapid, I am proud of being an Israeli and won’t kowtow to Israel’s enemies, especially the PA who pretends to be “moderates”!!

            I know all these things. Not because I watched “Schoolhouse Rock” as a kid. I’m a regular IsraellyCool reader. Conjunction Junction, what’s your function?

            1. What does “Conjunction Junction, what’s your function” mean, anyway. If it’s from a children’s TV program, then it’s long after my time.

              1. Jim from Iowa

                Just a friendly throw-away line. And a pretty catchy tune as well. Of course when I said I know all these things, I was only referring to your factual statements, not your political opinions, as extreme as I find them to be.

        3. Tzipi Livni and Yair Lapid oppose those policies as well, does that make them anti-Israel too?

          yes…it also makes them suicidal

          and please note that the reason it is called the west bank is because it was once the occupied west bank of jordan

          which totally flies in the face of an independent fakestein

  2. walker didnt visit gaza or make statements regarding israel and fakestein till long after her divorce

    and by “textbook” does she mean the bible?

  3. take a look at The Color Purple now, and you can see a lot of… shall we say hatred? for all sorts of demographics. So this is really nothing new for her, just a redirection. I’m curious why anyone thinks she has anything useful to say on the topic and why/how she keeps getting in the headlines. ugh.
