¿Respetan los comunistas la paz?
Esa es una pregunta que doña Mairead Maguire todavía no se cuestiona.
Nobel Peace Prize Winner Detained in Israel

Is Maguire's detainment politically motivated? Is it related to her support of the Palestinians?
"No," Haddad answered.
"She's not special, ok?" Haddad added. "She has to go by the law in Israel."
Referring to the state's position that Maguire was denied entry on the basis of her participation with the Freedom Flotilla, El-Ajou remarked, "This is the excuse."
What does detaining a Nobel Peace Prize winner say about the state of the Israeli government? Is it a strike against free speech? Is it punishment for supporting the Palestinians?
"It's both," El-Ajou responded. Maguire is being singled out because of her "commitment to alleviating the suffering of the people of Gaza and because of her wide activities seeking peace and justice," El-Ajou said.
Other prominent figures who are critical of Israeli policy towards the Palestinians have been denied entry to the country. In May, Noam Chomsky was barred from entering. In 2008, Professor Richard Falk, the UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian Territories, was detained as he attempted to enter Israel and was subsequently deported.
Richard Falk, U.S. jurist. Falk should have been forever disqualified from holding any responsible position when, after meeting Khomeini in 1979, he mocked claims that the ayatollah was fanatical or reactionary. Later appointed UN Special Rapporteur on human rights in Palestine (his term ends this year), he’s repeatedly compared Israel to Nazi Germany, saying that it exhibits “genocidal tendencies” and warning of a forthcoming “Palestinian holocaust.”
To Falk, the Boston Marathon bombings were an understandable act of “resistance” to U.S. imperialist hegemony and Americans’ outraged reactions were rooted in “Islamophobia.”
In 2011, Falk blurbed a book by fellow Jew-in-space Gilad Atzmon that was so virulently anti-Semitic that even notorious Israel-bashers distanced themselves from it (“Why would anyone blurb a book like this?” Andrew Sullivan asked); last year, in retaliation for UN Watch’s assiduous reporting on his vile record, Falk vindictively urged an investigation into that valiant NGO. As if all this weren’t enough, Falk is a 9/11 Truther whose call for a study of U.S. officials’ alleged involvement in the annihilation of the Twin Towers moved even morally lethargic UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon to label his charges “preposterous.” Not once, but several times apiece, the U.S., Britain, and Canada have all demanded that the UN fire Falk. But there he stays.
Sí, pero los pacifistas sólo ven un lado de la moneda, la del marxismo-leninismo que usan los dictadores para condenar a sus enemigos y proyectar lo que ellos mismos hacen. ¿De que le valen tantos reconocimientos y títulos universitarios si no se abochornan de demostrar su estupidez, es que mientras más intelectuales, más incongruentes se vuelven.
¿Por qué doña Mairead Maguire no visita Cuba, Venezuela, Corea del Norte, Rusia, la antigua Babilonia y le da unas clasesitas de pacifismo y respeto al prójimo a los Castro, Maduro, Kim jon Un, Vladimir Putin e ISIS?
¡Ahh! Esa es una pregunta bien interesante...
¿o son parte de la cofradía?
