The Palestinian ambassador to the United Nations said on Friday, October 17, that his government wants the UN Security Council to vote on a resolution before the end of the year that would set November 2016 as the deadline for a Palestinian state with east Jerusalem as its capital.
He then added an “or else” to his statement: The Palestinians would exercise “other options.” After decades of suicide bombers blowing up Jews, one does not have to guess what “other options” might mean.
Since Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, Palestinians have fired more than 11,000 rockets into Israel. Yet, in response to Palestinian terrorist tunnels and the latest war against Israel in July and August of this year, the US has led the world in donating $5.4 billion dollars to the corrupt Palestinians so that they can rebuild Gaza.
Since 9/11, Americans have seen firsthand what happens when Islamist jihadists are ignored and appeased. Can anyone actually believe that Jew-hating, oil rich Middle East dictators want the Palestinian crisis resolved? That would be a delusional fantasy.
Several years ago, I debated Al Sharpton on Hardball. I said to him, “You support Hamas. Put on the Mayor-of-Harlem hat and tell me that you would support the KKK if it fired thousands of rockets into Harlem from New Jersey, killing scores of black Americans. Oh, and by the way, it is now unlawful for blacks to live in New Jersey. That’s what is being demanded of Israel.”
Anti-Semitism in the Palestinian territories is reminiscent of anti-Semitism in Europe in the 1930s. No Jew dares make a wrong turn and end up in Gaza or Ramallah if they value their lives.
Thirty years ago, my own father, a church-goer from Alabama, believed that Jews were running the country and blacks were ruining it. (If they were to be truthful, many today still believe that.)
In 2010, I arranged the Fox News Network’s interview with Iran’s infamous president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Following the meeting, I asked him what he thought was the root of the Zionist cause. His response was a racist work of fiction used to fuel and feed the pogroms in Russian and the Holocaust. He said, “The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion is about a Jewish world conspiracy. It’s completely true and you should read it.”
The truth is, anti-Semitism is alive and well on planet Earth. The UN and a large percentage of the world consider Israel a racist, occupying state. Rallying behind the Palestinians is a politically correct way of hating Israel and assisting those who seek her obliteration. Israel is a lightning rod for worldwide anti-Semitism. Rather than attack a Jew, anti-Semites can now attack the collective Jew, Israel, while hiding behind the cloak of social justice.
Hitler, the Nazi Party, and even the evangelical German church bought into the social justice and Jewish world conspiracy lie in order to justify their evil. Today, that lie has spread faster than the Ebola virus plague.
