As I've noted on this blog in the past (here, here and elsewhere), the American left is obsessed with blaming Jews and/or Israel for everything that's wrong in the world, that they can't assign exclusive responsibility to the USA for, anyway - including the 9/11 attacks, genocide, and scores of other whackjob conspiracy theories.
So it shouldn't have been surprising to see that on one of the Internet's magnets for lunatic leftists, The Huffington Post, when it posted a news account of Hezbollah's massive rally today --- with which they hoped to overthrow the government of Lebanon --- out came the Jew-hating blogging brigade, in strength (and stench).
As a reminder, prior to 9/11, Hebollah was responsible for murdering more Americans than any other Islamist organization. And there is no doubt that Hezbollah has been allied with other anti-American organizations for decades, and via its sponsors, Iran and Syria, has been training, arming and exporting jihadist murderers for just as long.
Here's the link to the Huffington Post thread...
... and some illustrative excerpts of the "enlightened," "tolerant," "diverse" and "inclusive" posts that the new, seething leftarded base of the Democratic Party had to say about it - with nary a whimper of protest from the "mainstream" left:
"Well, well, well. Our wonderful government should be feeling quite proud of what we've started. By not calling off the Israel government massacre of Lebanon, Hezbollah is now in charge because they tried to defend Lebanon, where before they weren't loved by the majority..."And that's just a sampling. Cruise through HuffPost, DailyKos or the rest of the seething leftist loonbat blogosphere, and you'll see that that what's posted above are not anomolies --- to the contrary, they are probably on the tamer side of Jew-hatred and Israel-bashing among the "enlightened" set.

"Hezbollah is a shi-ite religious sect and is only about 4% of the entire Lebanese population ... an entire country is now being terrorized by a small group of thugs who protected their country from a really big group of thugs: Israel and American Neocons..."

"1. Documents show that israel had been planning the invasion of Lebanon for over a year before they attacked.2. Hezbollah is just an excuse to attack Iran. Israel is setting the stage in America to lie and manipulate the USA into attacking Iran for them."

"Enough with the victimization writing. Tell us how Israel's temper tantrum last summer has made the region more stable and marginalized Hezbollah as a politcal force. It would be fiction but as least it would be more entertaining."

"Jewish Americans donate to the ADL by the tens of millions. Sasha Cohen of 'Borat' drivel recently donated One Million Dollars to the JDL. An organized and well
funded terrorist group."

"I disagree with the myth that the IDF doesn't target civilians while the dirty "ragheads" do. Firing an air-to-surface rocket in crowded street for the purposes of a political assassination might not be targeting civilians but it shows a complete disregard for civilian life. Why is it OK to treat Palestinian civilians as combatants and targets because they support the insurection but Israeli squatters are off-limits because they are "pure" civilians and not an extension of Israeli military policy.How about this? Stop stealing Palestinian land and bulldozing their homes and they will stop shooting homemade rockets at your squatters."

One thing is beyond dispute: The jihadists' massive $investments in American universities, high schools and elementary schools, and media relations has paid HUGE results --- and you're looking at them.
