Because the world failed to rise up against terrorism directed against Israel beginning in the 1970s, the type of terrorism witnessed last Friday across Paris, killing more than 130 people, has been allowed to propagate, Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said on Sunday, according to the Jewish Daily Insider.

“Israel and the Jewish people have been subject to the same type of terrorism since the ’70s. And for so long, when it just happened to Israel, the world condoned it. They [may have not] condoned it, but maybe didn’t do much about it, and Israel had to fight terrorism on her own,” said Schumer.

“And, because the world did not rise up, this terrorism, like a cancer, has spread throughout the world,” he said.

The New York senator was speaking at the National Committee for Furtherance of Jewish Education’s 75th annual dinner in Manhattan on Sunday, less than two days after eight terrorists wreaked havoc across Paris.

“Had the world come down when the terrorists shot the Israeli athletes at the Olympics [in Munich, 1972], or hijacked El AL planes, and come down on them hard, we wouldn’t have had what happened in Paris, today,” said Schumer, according to the report.

“The message other than fighting terrorism is to make sure that when it’s directed at one nation – like it has been directed in Israel for now decades – it’s directed at every nation. And the world must unite to defend Israel against the terrorism that is used against her day in and day out,” he said.

Schumer was one of four Democratic senators to oppose President Barack Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, which Israel has warned will spread global terrorism.

    RIGHT ON! This is the best explanation I have heard to date. It’s OK for Jews to die! When it happens to Christians,etc., then something must be done. The dead silence when Netanyahu spoke at the UN spoke volumes about the disregard for Jewish lives. Now, the curse is on everyone else as well! Let’s see how quickly it is handled. OH AND IVAN: YOU DEMONSTRATED THAT YOU ARE A NUT JOB WITH YOUR RIDICULOUS VERBIAGE.

    Exactly! I’ll just add that now the world should follow and abbid the rules that the world has ruled on Israel fight against terror.
    The world should now also observe the same “carefullness” not to kill innocents. (which is not really what’s the world is doing in Syria/Irak… right?!)
    Good luck to the world, may G*d help you, otherwise…

    Damn right Senator Schumer. And, besides turning a blind eye to terrorism in Israel the EU continues it’s anti-Israel behavior and actions.

  • Carl

    Senator Schumer is exactly correct. Yassir Arafat was the father of Palestinian terrorism, which has blazed a trail of blood across Israel and now the rest of the world. There is no difference between Hamas, al-Qaeda, Isis, Hezbolah, and all the rest of the Islamic terror organizations. Only when terror against Israel is treated the same as terror against Paris or London can this scourge be eliminated. Else the cancer will continue spreading from just a single remaining cell.

  • I have never been as proud as I am this moment of having Senator Schumer represent New York. He has emerged as a true champion of truth and compassion for the Jewish people, and Israel in particular. May G-D continue to bless you and your family. Now if Senator Schumer would call for President Obama to resign from office, that would be something!

    In other words, because Israel is suffering, the Israel funded Islamic state was told to attack Paris to teach the goyim a lesson

  • Eric R.

    I agree with Schumer here.

    And in other news, I see pigs flying overhead.

    Israel and the Jewish people have been the canary in the mine. Now the West is in the mine as well. As the arch anti-Semite, Jeremiah Wright so prophetically said, “The Chickens have come home to roost.”

    You mean like the esteemed Senators own party?

    Why is the one person in power, who speaks the truth, not reported anywhere?
