...just when you thought that Charles Johnson's Little Green Footballs could not possibly sink any lower, we find that @Lizardoid is now giving credibility to the notion that 'someone' ('Israel is going to be the most likely suspect') poisoned Yasser Arafat. I would rate that as being the Middle East equivalent of claiming that George W. Bush hired 19 hijackers to fly two jets into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon and one into the ground in Pennsylvania on 9/11/2001.
Yes, Charles Johnson - the guy who gave so many of us our start in conservative blogging - has become an Arafat truther.
Also at Diary of Daedalus, "According to al Jazeera":
This is just a sign of Charles now embracing all he was once against. His past support of Israel was one of the major hindrances for the Left to embrace him. Clearly this post is a wink and nod to the Israeli haters on the Left. Will Charles soon be linking to Hizb’Allah’s al Manar next?
Could this be a symptom of....?
Of course we know Chuckles wears his atheism on his sleeve, as does most militant atheists. My personal opinion is that a lot of the anti-Israel, anti-Semitism we see in the modern Left today is based on the Left's contempt for Christianity, especially evangelical Christians, who are some of Israel's best friends and supporters due to the significance of that nation in biblical prophecy.
