"So, it's now antisemitic to demand that Israel treat the Palestinians humane?"

Michael Lumish
Despite 2,000 years of diaspora and the scattering of the Jews via European imperialism in the Middle East and the various pogroms and persecutions all leading to that romping good time that we call The Holocaust, the progressive-left still thinks that the Jews are the aggressors.
As a real-world acquaintance of German extraction once said to me, and I paraphrase, "So, it's now antisemitic to demand that Israel treat the Palestinians humane?"
The Arabs have been stomping on the Jews since the time of Muhammad and this individual honestly believes that the Jews are not "humane."
Let that sink in for a moment.
This is a progressive-left "anti-racist" of German ancestry who believes that the Jews of the Middle East are not "humane" and the Arabs are like tiny children in need of a chocolate chip cookie and a pat on the head.
Why does that sound just so familiar?

  1. You were there, but would this not depend on what exactly was being discussed? Seems ironic that a German would "demand" about humanely treating others, and that Israel is not humane. Alleged liberals know how to be woke, but that also makes them ignorant. Are they aware that, in effect, they support behavior that is the worst of the worst when they attack Israel's legitimate right to self-defense. Or are they saying that only Israel does not have that right? Which leads back, like so many roads, to antisemitism.

      It's called massive guilt.

  2. I hear echoes of centuries old deep seeded cultural as well as religious and familial antisemitism in this man's so-called question, which is not a question at all but a statement blaming Israeli Jews for the inhumane treatment of 'palestinians', i.e., Arabs who teach their people from birth to hate Jews, and to dream of one day slaughtering them and stealing their possessions which were guaranteed under international law.
    I might ask him why he is so anxious to believe in a narrative of inhumane treatment of the recently created palestinian people by Israeli Jews, and suggest to him that it is quite probable that he has fallen into an old habit of his tribe, i.e., creating a scenario with which to blame the Jews for their own persecution. The Israelis are not perfect, neither is he, but their treatment of the Arabs who scream daily for their murder is head & shoulders more humane than if that scenario were reversed, and that there is plenty of history to draw on which confirms this both in the Middle East, "Palestine", and all over Europe. Only in America do we see a difference and if we go back just a few generations, antisemitic rhetoric was fairly common, just as it is becoming again today. I might ask him where such concern for "Palestinians" is really coming from? Why are they more entitled to the concern of him and his friends than Kurds, Yazidis, or other peoples, who historically really are peoples, and whose stories are far more heart-wrenching? Or why he singles out Israel for condemnation when PA Arabs are treated far worse by their Arab brothers even where they have citizenship, such as the somewhat ludicrously named Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, or other parts of the ME where they left other blood relatives behind to become "indigenous Palestinians."

    It is one thing to impose a colonial name on our land, quite another to pretend it's the "real" name and pretend that conquering Arab supremacists are akin to native Americans.

    OR

    I might have responded to him, "I think you mean humanely, not humane. Instead of repeating warmed over Soviet anti-Zionist/antisemitic propaganda, why not find out the real history and facts about this conflict? Seriously, you sound like someone looking for excuses to again blame Jews for their own persecution. Jews have been on the defensive for centuries while being falsely blamed for being aggressors for just as long. That has always been a part of the antisemite's bag of tricks. Let me help you with the facts and true history of this conflict. The Israelis are in an unfortunate situation where they find themselves having to strike a balance between humaneness, a cherished value, and a necessary deterrence against those who thirst for their blood and annihilation, not for the sake of human rights, but for old supremacist reasons and envy. In this, the Israelis have surpassed all those who have come before them with a similar situation. Learn how you are being used by illiberal forces and the threat that presents to the values you say you hold dear. I can direct you to sources to help you gain a clearer vision of things as they really are. I can help you. But you first have to want to know the truth, and not be afraid to stand against the forces of ignorance and malevolence."

    1. I might add:

      And:
      "BTW, accusing the Israelis of being inhumane monsters, a calumny for sure, meets the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance definition of antisemitism."

  3. Depends on the definition of Humane I suppose. For most Palestinians, humane means being able to kill Jews as they will. For most Pro-Pals, ditto (see "pay for slay.)

      You know, the more I think about it, the more I think it always has been.

  7. Many commenters have already touched on my theme, but I'll add that defining the denial of the Palestinians their privileges under the Pact of Umar as inhumane is Jew-hatred.

    1. The same mentality as in this "progressive""antiracist's" so-called question has been launched against Jews even when they had no power or means of self-defense, i.e., incredibly claiming the inhumane treatment of others. There is an urge to blame the Jews no matter what the facts say. The facts will be rearranged and their meaning reinterpreted to fit the narrative, whether European or Arab. This is antisemitism.
      How else to explain the propensity to overlook the language and deeds of the Arab side of the conflict: a mountain of evidence.

  11. When is a quid pro quo not impeachable? When a Dem president (like Sanders, Warren, Buttieg or TBA,) does it to racist apartheid warlike Israel for being mean to those bunny like Palestinians. Imagine! The Nazi-like Israelis are probably using US funds right now to try and avoid being killed by 100's of bunny like Palestinian rockets....the curs.
