The problem: Haters gotta hate. The global and perplexing combo of ultra-liberals with Islamic fundamentals explodes into a litany of pure hatred. Did the American and European left protest the repeated kidnappings of Nigerian schoolgirls by the Islamic fundamentalists Boko Haram for child brides and sex slaves? No. Has the left protested the repeated massacres of Christians throughout the Middle East? No. The destruction of ancient Christian and Buddhist churches or statues? No. The daytime murder of a British Army member by a Muslim? No. Iran getting closer to owning nuclear bombs? No. ISIS marauding across Iraq and murdering at will? No. The Palestinian election of the terror group Hamas into the government? No. The kidnapping and murder of 3 Israeli teens by Hamas? No. The persistent Hamas habit of locating rockets and tunnels in homes, schools, ambulances, hospitals? No. Insist the Palestinians protect their own civilians? No.
Then don’t bother with the phony outrage. Just because the Israelis are bigger and stronger doesn’t mean they’re the evil empire. The problem for the left – composed mostly of lefty academia – is that the anti-Semitism is too hateful to hide; the left can’t take the high road here. They try to pretend they’re protesting the actions of the political state that is Israel – and I’m sure that’s true of some protesters – but the anti-Semitists own these protests. If you feel that you’re not anti-Semitic, it’s time for you to leave the anti-Israel protests because they will only become uglier and more anti-Semitic.
How’s this for irony? Ugly violent protests in Germany where neo-Nazis/Muslims call the Jews “beasts.” Nazism was Socialism that emphasized national revolution and control, Russian Socialism and the later label of communism emphasized world revolution. Both still had an elite group of power with a dictator in charge. In both the individual doesn’t matter, the collective matters. http://www.jpost.com/International/Neo-Nazis-Islamists-chant-You-Jews-are-beasts-during-protest-of-Israeli-operation-362742
Hard to believe that in America -Boston! – Jewish pro-Israeli protesters must be protected from the mob of left/Muslim protesters supporting the Palestinians and Hamas. http://hotair.com/archives/2014/07/21/police-protect-jewish-students-from-pro-palestinian-mob-in-boston/
Hamas dictates to the social media what the civilians placed in the line of danger should be called. Hint: They don’t want them called human shields. The news, especially the New York Times dutifully obliges Hamas. http://www.weeklystandard.com/blogs/all-news-hamas-sees-fit-print_796823.html?utm_campaign=Washington+Examiner&utm_source=washingtonexaminer.com&utm_medium=referral and more here: http://www.algemeiner.com/2014/07/18/hamas-instructs-social-media-legions-anyone-killed-or-martyred-is-to-be-called-a-civilian-and-dont-forget-to-always-add-innocent-civilian/
How bad were the protests in France? Even the French, the non-Muslims, are shocked. In France, the protesters blocked a synagogue to prevent Jews from leaving. It’s slowly dawning on the French that they wasted time hating American while embracing Socialism and ‘tolerance’, all of which has left them weak, defenseless and overrun with Muslims who hate France and want to turn it into an Islamic fundamentalist state. They’ve always expected America to be there to save them. But we have an American president who won’t help and a diminished military that can’t help. http://www.nationalreview.com/article/382735/frances-days-anger-ian-tuttle
Of course, the Muslim population in England has been swelling for several years and multiple Muslim leaders boast they will take over the country very soon. http://blogs.spectator.co.uk/douglas-murray/2014/07/londons-pro-palestine-rally-was-a-disgusting-anti-semitic-spectacle/
Of course for true depravity, there’s the United Nations, which discovered Hamas had betrayed them and their “peace” initiative by hiding 20 rockets in a UN school. What did the UN do with the rockets? Return them to Hamas, which can use them to attack Israel. That peace thingie seems to be a one-way street for UN. http://hotair.com/archives/2014/07/20/un-agency-returns-rockets-to-hamas/
The truest expression of their views was given voice a few years ago by the popular al-Jazeera star and leading cleric Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi when he said:
‘Throughout history, Allah has imposed upon the [Jews] people who would punish them for their corruption. The last punishment was carried out by Hitler. By means of all the things he did to them – even though they exaggerated this issue – he managed to put them in their place. This was divine punishment for them. Allah willing, the next time will be at the hands of the believers.’
Oh that’s right. Westerners, we’re the haters, we’re ‘Islamophobic,’ I almost forgot.
