For the radical Left, any Jew murdered in the name support for the Palestinians, had to have it coming.
Vasarahammer finds an interesting comment to a thread at the Hommaforum website concerning the brutal murders of the Rabbi and his family. the comment comes from a Finnish ‘lefty’ who also happens to work in a Swedish speaking daycare facility in Finland no less, who doesn’t agree that the cold blooded murders of the Rabbi and his children were acts of Jew-hatred (read = anti-Semitism).
“He (Veini) says that Toulouse killer did not commit a racist hatecrime, because he wanted to avenge for the dead Palestinians (and not kill Jews because they were Jews). Therefore, his actions were politically and not racially motivated.It’s quite amazing how some people manage to perform such intellectual somersaults.”
NOTE: How would you like for this amoral jerk to work around your kids at a daycare? It’s totally unbelievable the kinds of crackpots and miscreants that inhabit the same breathing space as you or I, let alone access to your children.
It’s not just the criminals and the terrorists who should stop.
It is time to stop excusing anti-Semitic calls for the murder of Jews as an acceptable outgrowth of the Palestinian cause.
A couple of years ago, I was in the Netherlands when a pro-Palestinian demonstration broke into a familiar chant: “Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas.” The “Jews to the gas” is a common cheer at Dutch soccer games. This was nothing new.
What was new is that this demonstration included a Dutch member of Parliament, Harry van Bommel of the Socialist Party, who continued along as his comrades called for a repeat of the Holocaust.
Europe’s blind spot on anti-Semitism
(CNN) — What would prompt a 23-year-old man, born and raised in France, to chase a small, terrified Jewish girl into a school courtyard, look her in the eye and shoot her in the head?
The very idea brings back memories of the 1940s, of an era that many Europeans have worked diligently, with considerable success, to put behind them. But the echoes of history should not be silenced. The tragedy of Toulouse is a call to take another look at that crucial fight against the poisonous prejudice that ultimately devastated Europe in the middle of the 20th century.
I believe an honest examination will reveal a blind spot among those fighting prejudice that has allowed the ancient Jew hatred that infected Europe for centuries to survive. The blind spot is this: When the prejudice — and even the call for murder — is made in connection with the Palestinian cause, people look the other way and give it a pass.
