They only condemn violence against Jews when it suits their own self-interests…
Corbyn, Abbas, Erdoğan and others of similar ilk at best believe that there is a hierarchical structure to antisemitism; that some acts of violence directed at Jews are acceptable while others are slightly less acceptable. Hence, they feign outrage when Jews are murdered in a Pittsburgh synagogue but remain silent (and sometimes cheer) when Jews in Israel and Munich are murdered. The sad reality is that these rancid folk could care less about a synagogue in Pittsburgh and are merely exploiting the tragedy in a self-serving manner.
Twitter user Mirabelle Ward summed it up best when she tweeted, “If the majority of the mainstream Jewish community thinks you are antisemitic, no matter how vehemently you may disagree, you should just keep your thoughts and prayers to yourself today. It’s not helpful. The only possible motivation is self-serving.”
AFTER PITTSBURGH SYNAGOGUE MASSACRE, ANTI-SEMITES POUR SALT ON WOUNDS
Why do Mahmoud Abbas, Jeremy Corbyn, and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan differentiate between Har Nof and Pittsburgh synagogue massacres?
Sabbath for me represents a day of rest and time to spend with my family. I do not access the internet, listen to radio or watch TV. For one day of the week, I take it upon myself to completely distance myself from the problems of the world. As a result, I did not hear of the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre until after sunset.
Aside from the horrific magnitude of the attack, two things immediately jumped out at me. The first was the advanced age of the victims, which included 97-year-old Rose Mallinger. This aspect of the dreadful slaughter reminded me of the Park Hotel Massacre when on the evening of March 27, 2002, during the start of the Jewish holiday of Passover, a Palestinian terrorist entered the dining area of the Park Hotel located in the resort city of Netanya, and detonated his shrapnel-laced bomb. The massive explosion killed thirty holiday-goers most of whom, like in Pittsburgh, were elderly.
The second thing that struck me was the sheer disingenuousness and hypocrisy of well-known anti-Semitic leaders and groups looking to score political points on the backs of dead Jewish victims. The Hamas terrorist organization, which has the blood of thousands of Jewish victims on its hands contemptibly said it was, “sorry to hear about the terror attack,” and then outrageously linked the attack to legitimate efforts undertaken by Israel to defend her citizenry.
Hamas’s enablers like Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan joined in on the action and issued faux condolences. Erdoğan is an anti-Semite to his core. He has dabbled with Holocaust revisionism, has compared Israel to Nazi Germany, claimed that Israel committed “genocide” against the Palestinians, alleged that Israel along with Jewish intellectual Bernard Henri Levy engineered the coup that saw the overthrow of Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood leader, Mohammed Morsi, and linked Jews to the fomenting of the 2013 Gezi Park riots.
Joining the chorus of fake expressions of sympathy was the Palestinian Authority, whose noxious octogenarian leader Mahmoud Abbas, is a confirmed Holocaust denier. On April 30, 2018 he publicly stated in a rambling televised address that the Holocaust was not the result of inherent German anti-Semitism but was rather brought upon by the Jews themselves due to their “social behavior” and alleged usurious conduct. Some other gems of his longwinded speech included the claim that Hitler was a Zionist sympathizer (a claim that has been regurgitated in British Labour Party circles), that Ashkenazi Jews are fake and descendants of the Khazars, and that Jews are not indigenous to Israel but are rather a foreign colonialist implant. In his 1982 dissertation Abbas alleged that gas chambers were never used to asphyxiate Jews and dismissed as a “fantastic lie” that six million Jews perished in the Holocaust. He claimed that the figure was less than 1,000,000.
