Palestinians Celebrate the Murder of Jews

Gaza residents from the southern city of Rafah hit the streets Saturday to celebrate the terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar where five family members were murdered in their sleep, including three children.

Oh, I'm sorry. Am I supposed to NOT notice this kind of thing?

Palestinian adults were handing out candy to children today in a celebration of the murder of 5 Jews, including a month-old baby girl who was stabbed to death by their hero.

One thing is certain, on the progressive blogs they will maintain silence in the face of this ferocious hatred toward the Jewish people.

That's why I have essentially left the Left. It's not that the progressive-left, as I have repeatedly affirmed, is crawling with anti-Semites. That is most emphatically not the case.

The problem is that the Left nonetheless provides venues, such as Daily Kos, the Huffington Post, and the UK Guardian, for anti-Zionists, Israel Haters, and semi-shrouded anti-Semites, to spread hatred toward the Jewish state and thus, inevitably, toward the Jewish people.

The problem with the Left is not anti-Semitism, per se, but indifference toward anti-Semitism combined with an almost total inability to recognize Radical Islam as a genocidal movement that must be opposed.

As for just why the Left fails to oppose Radical Islam (or Islamism) there are any number of possible reasons.  I suspect that one of those reasons is a tension within the liberal soul between a commitment toward Universal Human Rights and the Multicultural Ideal.

The latter is winning and thus the former gets trashed.  The Left seems to be in the process of giving up on universal human rights because it is largely incompatible with multiculturalism.  Universal human rights is a western notion that derives from the Enlightenment, but as such, there is an inherent tension between it and multiculturalism because multiculturalism recognizes no hierarchy of cultures and therefore it is not considered proper to impose that western notion onto non-Western peoples... like most Jihadis.

The thinking might go something like this:

Who are we to impose our notions of justice onto non-Westerners?  Who are we, with our monstrous history of imperialism and colonialism around the world, to tell Jihadis that murdering Jews, and other non-Muslims, is wrong?

Sadly, those who think like this, such as many, many people on the political left stand for nothing whatsoever, which is why they cannot bring themselves to oppose Radical Islam.

Just because Radical Islam is a long-standing political movement with roots, via the Brotherhood, in Nazi Germany and that seeks to impose Sharia on Israel and the west through violent means, how can we as good progressives possibly object?

And so they do not object.

This leads me to understand that if Radical Jihadis want to kill Jews, the progressive-left will not stand in their way. In fact, as we saw with the Mavi Marmara incident, some on the progressive-left will actually join with Jihadis and help them in their efforts.

{By the way, you should also know that if you mention any of this to Leftists they get very, very upset. They seem not to want to hear it, for some reason. Shocking, I know.}


  1. Yeah. Ever think we'll see as passionate a diary about THIS from the likes of soysauce et al? No, faux apartheid is their only mealy mouthed crusade.

  2. Hi Ken,

    The apartheid slander is a means with which to undermine Jewish self-determination and self-defense. People like "soysauce" are not seeking social justice. What they are seeking is the end of the Jewish state. If they honestly cared about the Palestinian people they would encourage them to accept a state for themselves and move on with their lives.
