Many Jews see injustice at the heart of Zionism
Alf Haupt, in his rush to trumpet racist remarks, dismisses Eric Bahrt as a Jewish peculiarity supporting Palestinian rights. In fact, there are many Jews who support the recognition of a Palestinian state, oppose one-sided violence and wish to improve the quality of life of an oppressed people.
Mr Haupt should consider changing his name to Alf Garnett, the famous British comedy star of yesteryear. This is a very good idea and a first step towards making them illegal! Drones are unnecessary toys and should not be available to the public, same as assault weapons. The bigger ones can carry payloads of 20 kilos or more, and are potentially extremely dangerous delivery systems for explosives, chemical and biological weapons and other nasty stuff. Camera-equipped drones are also commonly used to snoop on other people’s privacy and business dealings. They can go stationary and take photos and videos right through people’s windows, even in condo and office buildings. And they can easily be used to take down aircraft, either on take- off or on landing approach. Why they were ever allowed to be made available to the public is totally incomprehensible tome.
A remote-controlled model aircraft can do all this too, but I have not heard of one being used to “take down” a commercial aircraft, and they have been around for the last 50 years!
