Here's how it works and it's really quite simple.
Here's how it works and it's really quite simple.
The Arab majority in the Middle East tries to kill Jews, mainly on religious grounds, and their friends in the western left explain to one another just why it is that the Arabs have every right to try to kill Jews, on grounds of social justice. Hamas shot hundreds of rockets over the course of just a few days (and many thousands over the course of years) into southern Israel making life impossible for the residents of that region. During the course of the recent bombardment the progressive-left was absolutely silent because they honestly do not consider violence against Jews to be violence, perhaps because they do not believe that Jews are actual human beings.
It was only when the Jews stood up to defend themselves that suddenly they burst into righteous indignation blaming the Jews of the Middle East for the ongoing Arab violence against them.
So on Daily Kos we get this:
How is killing children defending themselves? (0+ / 0-)
Are six year olds that dangerous to Israel?
by Christy1947 on Tue Nov 20, 2012 at 12:02:29 AM PSTThis is, of course, the blood libel. For centuries when people wished to justify violence against the Jewish people they told one another that Jews like to harm children. There is only one reason to repeat this kind of vile and evil lie, it is to justify the violence against the Jews in the region.
And we get this:
WTF did "they" expect when they moved into (1+ / 0-)

The war to conquer Palestine and make it a "Jewish Homeland" has been going on for decades, and obviously won't be stopped until either the people whose homes and land were stolen give up, and stop trying to get it back, or until those people (Palestinians) are killed off while trying.
Isn't there a word for systematically murdering people based on their race or ethnic make-up?
by recontext on Mon Nov 19, 2012 at 11:24:41 PM PSTThis comment, aside from being entirely ahistorical and innacurate, accuses the Jews of the Middle East of both thievery and genocide. The obvious point to take away is that Arab-Muslim violence against the Jews of the Middle East... a little project which has been ongoing for 14 hundred years... is entirely the fault of those Jews for their bad behavior and moral failings. Furthermore, to suggest that Israel is committing genocide against the Palestinians is to take the Holocaust and use it as a club against the Jewish people.
It represents a sadistic moral inversion because there is no genocide taking place against the Palestinian people. Some on the anti-Jewish racist left will say that Israel is conducting a "slow motion" genocide. Well, given the fact that the Palestinian population both within Israel and within the territories increases decade after decade it would actually have to be a genocide in reverse.
Or how about this:

Justice For Will Will spent his brief, courageous life fighting for the rights we all take for granted. Please share his story to support the fight!
by KibbutzAmiad on Mon Nov 19, 2012 at 06:31:51 PM PSTNever mind the fact that Israel practically tore itself to pieces in the 2005 decision to ethnically cleanse every Jew from the Gaza strip, as far as "progressives" are concerned the so-called "occupation" continues whether there are any Jews present or not.
But here, again, the point is that violence toward Jews is fully justified. This is the meaning of that comment and the hundreds of others like the ones above that are pouring out of the keyboards of those champions of universal human rights who also believe that Arab-Muslim violence against Jews in the Middle East is perfectly fine and honorable.
There's plenty more where that came from, but you guys get the point.
The Arabs commit violence against the Jews of the Middle East because the presence of Jewish sovereignty on Jewish land is an offense to Islam and the left is silent.
The Jews hit back and the left springs to life explaining to anyone who will listen that the Jews deserve every bit of violence that comes their way on grounds of social justice.
And, yet, diaspora Jews will continue to support the very political movement, the progressive-left, from which all this hatred comes pouring forth.
It's really pretty sick. These sadists seem to get psychological gratification out of kicking the Jews while they're under violent attack. The more violence that comes to the Jews of the Middle East the greater the pitch of progressive-left hysteria toward those Jews.
They spread hatred toward Jews, who they then claim are haters, and they spread racism against Jews, who they then claim are racists and, sickeningly enough, they do this under the banner of social justice and universal human rights.
It could hardly be more perverse.
There is a disease at the core of the progressive movement and it takes the form of rationalizing and encouraging violence against us.
