In The convenient war against the Jews Caroline Glick argues that much of the world hopes that global Jihad can be appeased with Jewish blood. If so, many Western leaders figure, a deal can be made. After all, it has been made before. No I do not mean with the Nazis, I mean with the Palestinians:
In a letter to Italy’s Corriere della Serra in August, Cossiga acknowledged that during the early 1970s, then Italian prime minister Aldo Moro signed an agreement with Yassir Arafat’s PLO and affiliated organizations that enabled the Palestinians to field terrorists, operate bases and store weapons in Italy in exchange for immunity from attack for Italy and Italian interests worldwide. Cossiga also acknowledged that even when the Palestinians murdered Italians, the government still protected them. Indeed, he admitted for the first time that the largest terror attack ever to take place on Italian soil - the bombing of the Bologna train station in July 1980 which killed 85 people - was the work of PLO-affiliated terrorists from George Habash’s Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.Then too, in December 1985, Palestinian terrorists opened fire on the El Al ticket counter at the Rome airport. Ten people were killed. Another seven people were murdered in a simultaneous attack against the El Al ticket counter at the Vienna airport. According to Cossiga, Italian intelligence agencies received prior warning of the attack but didn’t bother to share the information with Israel.
Cossiga explained to Yediot, “No Italian targets were hit. They attacked the Israeli airline at the airport. The murdered were all Israelis, Jews, and Americans.”
Actually, as Andrei Markowitz explained in Uncouth Nation Anti-Semitism is closely tied to Americanism. Hence, for Cossiga and the Italians, Americans, too, are expendable. John McCain understands it. McCain said “we cannot have a second Holocaust. Let’s just make it very clear.” Following in Cossiga’s footsteps, Obama said he “reserve the right, as president of the United States to meet with anybody at a time and place of my choosing if I think it’s going to keep America safe.”
Rev. Wright’s protege, clearly thinks there is a difference and I would not be surprised if Jewish blood will have to flow before a president Obama (God forbid) is disabused of that stupid notion. Not that he will be, too, concerned. After all, his mentor and his radical friends all agree that past American support for Israel deserves punishment.
