I received an email the other day from an educator that included the video below created by students.
Throughout much of the progressive-left blogosphere we are seeing alleged "liberals" seeking to justify the kidnapping - and probably now murder - of three Jewish teenage religious students in Israel by local Arabs.
One of my favorite lines on Daily Kos was when some entirely insensitive schmuck wrote, and I paraphrase:
Well, Israel has kidnapped the entire Palestinian nation, so why shouldn't Palestinians kidnap a few Israelis?Others, in an openly racist admonition against the Jewish people, wonder how it is that either the kids' parents or the Israeli authorities allowed those kids to even be there; there, where Jews are not supposed to be, which also happens to be the place where the Jewish people were born.
The most common progressive-left pro-the-kidnapping-of-Jewish-teenagers argument came from those who simply think that the Jews of the Middle East are guilty of persecuting the local Arabs and therefore it is not surprising, nor much to be concerned about, that Arabs seek to kidnap and murder Jews.
