Ahistorical Partisanship

By Brent Sasley

Huffington Post, March 12, 2012

It is to be expected that in the highly-charged atmosphere of election year politics, both parties will seek to appeal to specific emotive issues. It's also to be expected that groups will select specific facts over others to bolster their arguments. This is normal as far as it goes, and tolerable. But it becomes problematic when groups ignore history to make their case. This has been in abundant evidence when it comes to sparring over U.S. policy toward Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
