While there’s been 120,000 people killed in Syria over the last year in a brutal civil war, throughout Africa homosexuals have been brutally beaten en masse (including by the police), there’s a new United Nations report which accuses North Korea of “systematic, widespread and gross human rights violations,” and crimes against humanity, these are all issues which are secondary to the “conflict in the Middle East” for Secretary of State John Kerry and the media. Unfair bias.
The Middle East conflict doesn’t refer to Iranians building nuclear bombs, the civil wars in Syria or Egypt, or other violence in the region — it always comes back to the Jewish state. And at the end of the day the fingers are constantly pointed at the Jews, and it is always Israel which is blamed.
There’s a sick obsession with Israel. While opponents claim it is not anti-Semitism, as Bobby Brown, a former adviser to Israel’s Prime Minister recently said, “Amazing to think when they strike against Jewish rights, kosher meat, circumcision, wearing a Kippa, allowing Jews to live in the lands of their fathers, ignoring violent acts against Jews, force Jews to work on Shabbat, deny the Holocaust, support and arm those who want to destroy Jews, or encouraging the boycotting of Jewish products, they say it has nothing to do with anti-Semitism. Can they explain what anti-Semitism is?”
Edward Alexander, Prof. Emeritus at the University of Washington, says those who criticize Israel “as the sole ‘anachronistic’ state in an otherwise progressive multicultural world, don’t they sense, even subconsciously, a potential kinship with the genocidally inclined (and not-at-all progressive) president of Iran? In law, such kinship is called ‘accessory to murder.’”
As Alexander continued, “Too many writers and pundits today are obsessed, almost pathologically, by the conviction that Israel is the most evil country that ever has existed, and that its removal from the family of nations is a precondition of world peace.”
Rightfully, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu proclaimed tonight in Jerusalem, “In the past anti-Semites boycotted Jewish businesses and today they call for the boycott of the Jewish state, and by the way, only the Jewish state. I think that it is important that the boycotters be exposed for what they are; they are classical anti-Semites in modern garb.”The Jewish prime minister has not forgotten that the modern day State of Israel is a miracle.
Ze’ev Jabotinsky, the forefather of Netanyahu’s political party, wrote an article in 1911 entitled “Go to Hell!” which says: “Instead of excessive apology and instead of turning our backs to the accusers — as there is nothing to apologize for, and nobody to apologize to — it is long overdue to respond to all current and future accusations, reproaches, suspicions, slanders, and denunciations by simply folding our arms and loudly, clearly, coldly, and calmly answer, ‘Go to Hell!'
"We are hated not because we are blamed for everything, but we are blamed for everything because we are not loved. We do not have to apologize for anything. We are a people as all other peoples; we do not have any intentions to be better than the rest. We do not have to account to anybody; we are not to sit for anybody’s examination and nobody is old enough to call on us to answer. We came before them. We are what we are, we are good for ourselves, we will not change and we do not want to."
The pressure against Israel — of politicians and boycotts — remains a continuation of the historic war against the Jews.
