The usual liberal groups are protesting Israel’s military action in Gaza. “Hundreds” marched in Houston’s Galleria area yesterday, according to the Houston Chronicle. The World Council of Churches demands that “the violence against Gaza” must stop.
They conveniently fail to note something important. This “violence” is Israel’s reaction to Hamas’ breaking of the peace. Hamas started lobbing rockets and missles into civilian areas of Israel. The ADL is correct: Israel had no choice in the face of the breaking of the peace by Hamas. It had to react. It is also correct to note the hypocrisy of the UN, which attempts to equate Arab terrorism with the legitimate response of a government to terrorism.
But the defenders of terrorism are one-sided, blinded by antisemitism. They simply want Israel to disappear, commit suicide (as Rod Dreher notes), or be destroyed. The defenders of the terrorists say they simply want peace, and an equitable solution to the plight of the Palestinians, but their consistently one-sided condemnation of Israel reveals the truth. Read the Arab media, and the antisemitic agenda is clear (including publishing and dramatizing such historic anti-Jewish garbage as The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion).
Speak up for truth. Don’t let antisemitic lies go unchallenged. Don’t let the purveyors of hate think that they can continue to spread the lies that led to the murder of 6,000,000 Jews in the Holocaust. As Hanukkah ends, do your part to ensure that the light continues to shine.
