Leave Israel Alone!

The double standard against Israel is sickening – who are They to tell Israel anything? 35,000 Syrians slaughtered -I didn’t see any international headlines covering that story. There are no flotillas to Syria; the American Secretary of State isn’t running there.

Today the world complains about the “brutal repression of the Palestinians.” It is a back-page story when the Palestinian Arabs take seven men and shoot them in Gaza City without trial, then drag them through the streets where masses of people spit and trample upon them.  Where are the human rights activists of Amnesty International?

Jews have always had issues – with Hitler, with the Cossacks of Chmielnicki who massacred tens of thousands of us in 1648-49, with the Crusades – and so many others. And now, the people of Israel simply wish to live as a free people, in a free land, and are unable to do so without rockets being fired daily at them.

Even when in their own country, the world simply cannot  leave them alone to live in peace. Israel is attacked in the media because they respond to attacks upon innocent citizens. Before 1948 there was no Jewish state to impede peace between Jews and Arabs – yet Jews were slaughtered in Jerusalem, Jaffa, Safed and Hebron. 67 Jews were slaughtered on one day in Hebron in 1929.

I don’t recall world leaders calling upon America to make peace with Osama Bin Laden after 9/11. Twisted cries of “Allahu Akhbar” are today heard in Gaza – where crowds cheer when a bus full of innocent people is blown up in Tel Aviv. The Jews aren’t cheering in the streets about killing Arabs.

Jews are not promoting brainwashing children in military training camps, teaching them how to blow themselves up and cause maximum deaths of Jews and other non-Muslims. Jews don’t hijack planes; they don’t kill athletes at the Olympics; or blow themselves up in restaurants. There’s not a single Jew who has destroyed a church; there’s not a single Jew who calls for the death of infidels.

Perhaps the world should examine the respective values which exist in the Middle East. As Netanyahu said: ‘If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more violence. If the Jews put down their weapons today, there would be no more Israel.”
