NOTE: The TT photoshop pic in the above was done exclusively for the Swedish blood libel against Israel concerning demonstrably false accusations of organ harvesting being done by IDF soldiers.
TINSC: That was a great article, KGS.
Blood libels against the Jews occur every day and you rarely, if ever hear the mainstream media complain. In fact, more often than not, the mainstream media is the willing propagator of these blood libels.
Jimmy Carter tells us that all wars in the world emanate from the Arab-Israeli war which is perpetuated by “Israeli intransigence”.
9/11 truthers tell us “the Mossad” planned and executed the 9/11 attacks. This thesis is commonly held in the Muslim world. This fact goes without much reporting by the mainstream media as Bernard Goldberg notes in his book “Bias”.
Blood libels against Jews occur everyday without any outrage whatsoever from liberals OR conservatives. Only when Sarah Palin used the term to defend herself did anyone notice.
One can argue whether Sarah Palin used an accurate analogy, but I was convinced from the start that she did Jews a favor using that term. Up until the LIBS screeched and squealed at the use of the term, most people hadn’t a clue as to what it meant.
I think Barry Rubin did a nice job of demonstrating the analogy between blood libels against the Jews and the squealing and shrieking waged against Sarah Palin, conservatives, the Tea Party etc. She was certainly within her right to use the term and whatever shortcomings exist in the analogy, she did Jews a tremendous favor by forcing the liberal mainstream media to define the term and bring scrutiny on themselves. I wonder if “small L” liberals have even figured it out.
