A Response to ‘Israeli condemnation ‘not
enough,’ say US Jewish groups, after baby killed’
Fatal firebombing of Palestinian family by alleged
Jewish terrorists prompts unusually harsh criticism by mainstream US Jews
Below is my response to an article in The
Times of Israel on the murder of a Palestinian baby:
The whole concept of
terrorism is a useless one in trying to understand the barbaric murder of a
Palestinian infant. It is not simply the action of the 2 crazed settlers.
It was Rabbis Shapira and Elitzur who wrote Torat HaMelech (the King’s Torah)
which justified the killing of even Palestinian infants, because they may grow
up to hate ‘us’, who are equally responsible. The same goes for all the rabbis
who forbade the renting of apartments to Arabs starting with Safed’s Shmuel
But the cancer of racism permeates the whole of the Zionist body politic. How
can Netanyahus’ fake condemnation be taken seriously when his own deputy
Defence Minister Eli Dahan describes Palestinians as beasts and animals whilst
proclaiming the superiority of the Jewish soul, yea even those of Jewish
Or a ‘Justice’ Minister who posts a screed on her facebook page calling for the
wiping out of the whole Palestinian people and its mothers in particular, so
they don’t give birth to ‘little Palestinian snakes’. Or Naftali Bennett who is
proud of having killed so many Arabs. Or Miri Regev who compares African asylum
seekers to ‘cancer’ and then apologises to cancer sufferers for the analogy.
Yet who was suspended for 6 months from the Knesset? A secular Arab woman MK
Haneen Zoabi, not the Jewish racists, because Jewish racism is always exempt.
That is what a Jewish state means.
And why all the fuss over a couple of molotov cocktails that burnt alive a
child and his family? Isn’t that what Israeli pilots did over Gaza last summer?
Perhaps next time a group intends to perpetrate a ‘price tag’ attack, someone
can whisper in their ear that they should join the Israeli airforce instead.
That way they can become heroes when kill Palestinian babies and people will
watch them from armchairs on a hill overlooking Gaza whilst they drink coffee.
