You probably don’t know this, but the other day, a terrorist snuck into a Jewish neighborhood in Israel and attacked a 13-year-old boy with an axe, killing him,
though not immediately.
The child had time to run home and plead for help before collapsing and dying in his living room in front of his frantic family.
The child-killing terrorist got away.
I did not learn of this atrocity on the mainstream or cable news. I found out about it from one of the Jewish news outlets I subscribe to.
The same is true of the recent cold-blooded, broad daylight murder of a rabbi, his two little boys and another little girl at a Jewish school in France. Barely warranted a blurb along the bottom of the screen here.
It’s obvious that this is not because no one cares when terrible things happen to children, but it seems as though this is true as long as they are not Jewish. We have ample evidence of this.
For instance, when a 12-year-old Palestinian boy was believed to have been shot and killed in a gun battle between Arabs and Israelis, it was front page news for weeks and touched off an Intifada that cost who-knows-how-many lives.
The fact that the episode was proven in a French court to have been a Pallywood hoax and that not only was the kid not killed by Israeli fire, he didn’t actually die at all, is not widely known. That’s because it didn’t make the news.
People are protesting throughout the United States over the shooting death of an African American teenager in Florida.
But they kill Jewish babies, children, pregnant women and entire families, and no one thinks it’s newsworthy.
For some reason, the international media turns a blind eye to atrocities when the
victims are Jews. Particularly when the killers are Muslim.
How to explain this?
And call me a paranoid conspiracy theorist, but it’s looking to me like a worldwide, mass mind-meld of some kind, aimed at shifting public sentiment toward accepting violent anti-Semitism. Again.
This week, for instance, President Barack Obama, at a nuclear security summit, “sought a thaw in the diplomatic chill with Pakistan, a critical but difficult U.S. partner whose nuclear weapons and historical links to terrorism make its arsenal among the world’s most vulnerable,” Associated Press reported.
But, even as the Prez seeks to warm relations with Islamic terrorist-heavy Pakistan, he’s throwing our relationship with our only real Mid-East ally into the deep freeze with both hands.
On the one hand, we have the Arab world sliding at breakneck speed over the Islamo-Fascist cliff, with, for instance, the Muslim Brotherhood (read Iran) taking over the Egyptian government and a committee there announcing it sees Israel as the country’s enemy No. 1 and seeks to undo the treaties that have kept the peace for 30 years. The Syrian government keeps saying it will talk, or accept agreements, but continues killing its own people wholesale, and the West is unable to unwilling to make it stop, perhaps because Syria is really an Iranian puppet state. The behavior – the stalling, the saying the right things while doing exactly what they’ve been doing – seems awfully similar to what Iran is doing. Maybe this is not a coincidence, either.
Add to this, this weeks report that the Obama Administration “leaked” that Israel had made an arrangement with the government of Azerbaijan, to allow it to land planes there, and you begin to get a clearer picture of the wider situation.
Azerbaijan is a Muslim country bordering Iran, so if the Obama Administration didn’t know this leak would endanger both that country and any mission Israel might have hoped to undertake to eliminate the existential threat posed by a nuclear-armed Iran, they’re too stupid to be running the country.
I’m assuming they knew.
So, what does this mean for the relationship between Israel and the United States? I think it means that American Jews should make sure their passports are current, but that’s just me.
“Reports indicating that U.S. officials have made public sensitive information about Israel’s efforts to address Iran’s nuclear weapons capability are deeply alarming,” said Rabbi David Saperstein, director of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism, in a statement, “We fervently hope that military action will not be needed and continue to push all parties to do everything possible to avoid it. But to so severely damage and constrain Israel’s military options as this leak has done ill-serves the interests of all that seek to constrain Iran’s nuclear military ambitions.”
This statement gives the administration the benefit of the doubt, suggesting the leak may not have been intentional, but, really.
I hate to say it, but with friends like this, …
