JNS.org – In a French television report on a memorial service held for the Brussels terror victims in the city’s Place de la Bourse Square, a pro-Palestinian activist was filmed removing and tearing up an Israeli flag that had been placed at the scene in solidarity with the victims.

The French TV channel RTL aired footage from Wednesday’s memorial service, showing the activist taking the flag from among several flags of other countries, crumpling it, tearing it up, and then hiding it under a Palestinian flag.

“I got the video from a Jewish student in Brussels, who happened to be watching TV and saw it on the live broadcast from the scene of the attack,” said Ido Daniel, who heads efforts to combat anti-Semitism for the National Union of Israeli Students.

“As soon as I got the video, I made sure to spread it across social media. This is the only way we can fight and reveal the true faces of these activists and what they’re focusing on at such a dire time,” he said, Yedioth Ahronoth reported.

The activist, added Daniel, “didn’t really care about the terror victims or the catastrophe that occurred in her city only 24 hours before. What bothered her most in this terror attack was the fact the Israeli flag was there as part of a show of solidarity with the Belgian people. This is the essence of the anti-Israel obsession.”

    Every time I think anti-Israel/Jewish activists have acted in the most depraved way a human being can, they find find new lows –ALL IN THE NAME OF HUMANITY. One has to analyze why the most radical of humans, the most psychologically disturbed and anarchic of all people, are the BDS and Palestinian/muslim rights groups. ANYTHING-that’s Jewish: a person, a food, a shoe, device…when and where does such discrimination stop?? Oh, I forgot, it stops in extermination camps.

    is there any surprise here? for most of the euros, it’s always Israel’s fault. any good in Israel that these fools are compelled to admit, and they deny whatever they can, however implausibly, is dismissed as “pinkwashing” or something similar. in philosophy and science, one must be able to falsify a proposition, to test it and prove it false. Israel’s dishonest and despicable antagonists do not care about the truth; they are religious zealots who hate the Jews and Israel. no reference to controverting facts will be heard, much less considered.

    picture this: a student “leader” at the lse or the sorbonne or cambridge or oxford, etc., has been captured by islamic state and is on the scaffold with a knife at his throat. the only thing that this uneducable fool would utter with his last breath would be a curse against Israel. this phenom, minus the ineradicable hatred, broadly speaking, was called by the RCCh, “invincible ignorance.”

    the western euros are eagerly writing their own epitaph.

    it takes a profoundly pathological psyche to find a savage, intolerant, racist, obscurantist, medieval dictatorship preferable to Israel. the euros can proudly march and declare their identity with hamas or hizb, both genocidal regimes. no problem for the euros: the most that one will hear will be a mild, sotto voce, demurral. the only villain, the only subject, ever, is hatred of Israel and the Jews.

    I keep hearing about all the ways to “combat anti-Semitism,” but I would appreciate first calling it what it is (i.e., anti-Jewish). And second, lets talk to the “haters” and ask them what they are angry about? We need dialogue, not “self-Serving” labels and labels of “bigot, hater, etc.,” which serve to stifle productive dialogue.
