When even the majority of youtube commenters call bullshit, you know it's bullshit.
But baleen loves putting his propaganda on the front page.
Two questions: could you define "propaganda", as you use it? And which of the claims made in this lecture, specifically, do you believe are "bullshit", and why?
sorry, per baleen's rules of discourse, I can make any vague claims I want without even explaining them, much less provide evidence.
Don't be like that, SolRo. If you've got a serious, well-reasoned objection to anything this guy says, then please articulate it. If you don't, then be the bigger man and refuse to stoop to "baleen levels". Or, possibly, consider the things he says for which you presently have no response, because perhaps he's right.
For example, a few of the claims he makes are: that Palestinians are economically disadvantaged, that Palestinian needs have traditionally been neglected, that Isareli society's preference for giving jobs and public assistance to military veterans makes it very difficult for Palestinian Arabs to break cycles of poverty, that education is extremely important for Palestinians (especially Palestinian women), and that the question of whether Israel should be defined as a "Jewish state" or as a "secular state that happens to have a lot of Jews" is a major point of contention between Israelis and the Palestinian leadership.
Are any of these claims "propaganda"? Are any of these claims "bullshit"?

Haven't watched the video, 5 stars for making people angry.
he's annoying for sure, but I've long since stopped getting angry at people for being stupid.

'Light-Skinned Ashkenazi Jew Defends Multi-Decade Anti-Arab Pogrom' would be a more appropriate title for this video.
A lecture like this would carry more weight if it was being given by a full-blooded Levantine Jew whose ancestors didn't go on a European sojourn for 10 or 15 centuries and return to the desert with European DNA and ruthless colonial ambitions. I'm sure we would hear about how lucky they are to be relegated to the ghettos of Israel rather than the open-air concentration camp that is the Gaza Strip. Or not.
