Israeli Apologist Benny Morris
He gives historians a bad name.
by Stephen Lendman
On January 8, Morris headlined his Haaretz op-ed "The day after Iran's tomorrow," saying:
"If Iran feels Israel or (America) are about to attack it soon, it could use missiles to attack attack Israel's military airfields and perhaps additional strategic installations as well, in a pre-emptive strike."
He knows Iran threatens no one. It hasn't attacked another country in over two centuries. Its neighbors aren't threatened. It prioritizes peace, not war.
Morris way overstepped. He's done it throughout his career. He substitutes lies for truth. More on his duplicitous comments below.
In August 2008, James Petras headlined "Racism and Genocide: Lies of Our Times." He discussed Morris. He called him a "Zionist genocide promoter." He "practices the Big Lie."
He falsely said he "never supported the brutal expulsion of all Palestinians"I have said, repeatedly, that the expulsion of the Palestinians is immoral and impracticable."
