While browsing the Drudge report today, I found this article. Basically, some Palestinians hung up a swastika near a thoroughfare where it might be seen by Jews. On a side note, the swastika was going the opposite direction of the Nazi swastika, which betrays the stupidity usually seen in the prejudiced. The Nazi swastika always pointed right, while this one is the more traditional swastika, originally a symbol of good luck, which might be found all over the world.
Here’s why there can be no peace between Israel and its neighbors. It may be true that the Israelis are not perfect angels, that they have committed crimes against the Palestinians, that their actions have made Palestinians live in squalor, but, unlike their enemies, they have no desire to completely annihilate the Palestinians. For, what else does flying a Nazi flag mean except that the perpetrators wish to exterminate the Jews? Sometimes, I cannot but wonder at the numerous and continuous terrorist acts committed against the Jews with relative impunity. What other civilized nation would suffer so many casualties to their civilian population and retaliate so little? American decimated the Moros of the Philippines and various American Indian tribes for much less.
Islamic extremist clerics–or, perhaps ordinary Middle Eastern clerics–preach nothing but hatred toward the Jews, and their congregations are filled with it. How can there be peace when one side is imbued with such malice? One would have hoped after the horrors of the holocaust, the Jews would have been given a measure of peace. Yet, not only do their religious enemies give them no peace, but the secular media blames Israel for producing the very hatred which the Muslims have expressed toward the Jews since 1948–as soon as the British army withdrew from the area! Those people in the media should be ashamed for giving aid and comfort to people who wish to finish what Adolf Hitler started in 1933!
