Ugly Reality Mostly Ignored Shames Media

We felt that perhaps a small introduction to the article is necessary. We found sticking strictly to the subject to be terribly difficult, emotionally draining and psychologically vexing. We found writing about related facts and other connected subjects to be required for our own emotional needs. The rape of a seven-year old girl was to be so horrific that our emotions and anger resulting from even thinking about such a barbaric act to be too much, so please bear with us, thank you.

 

Outside of Israel and a few Jewish communities, the recent bestial rape by a Palestinian Arab worker at an elementary school, of a seven-year young girl near the school where two fellow Palestinian Arabs assisted holding the child down while berating her for being an Israeli and a Jew, has been ignored. Had such a crime been committed with the roles reversed, the world would have seen two-inch banner headlines. Such is something which will never be seen, bizrat Hashem. There are numerous items which were perpetrated and underlying this horrific act. It was not, as rapes often aren’t, a crime of passion. This was not fully a crime to impress superiority on the victim. This was a nationalistically driven act of terrorism meant to imply superiority over a Jew and “an occupier” which was helpless and did not even know how to fight. This was an act done to impel a right to take anything for their pleasure from the lands of their enemy. This was an act done to proclaim a victory over the Zionist Entity by defiling one of their women, even if the woman was a seven-year young child. This was a despoiling with intent to ruin a young mind, body and soul filling her with a dread which will haunt her the rest of her life. This was done in order to make her unfit for any other man and to claim to have destroyed a Jew. This was an act worthy of an idolatrous barbarian.

 

There is far more which should be understood by the rest of the world, specifically those who hate Israel without ever coming here to see what it is that they are supposed to hate and verify whether what they have been told is valid or false. The Arab view of Israel is that they will eventually destroy it even if they are forced to wait perhaps a few centuries. To many of the Arab Palestinians every Jew is a legitimate target for committing any atrocity against. The same would apply to an Israeli Christian or any Israel who is not a Muslim, or potentially not sufficiently Muslim. Theirs is an intent for domination, then humiliation and finally eradication. Their intent has not altered one iota since best described so succinctly by Azzam Pasha, Secretary-General of the Arab League who stated, before six Arab armies invaded the nascent state of Israel in May of 1948, “It will be a war of annihilation. It will be a momentous massacre in history that will be talked about like the massacres of the Mongols or the Crusades.” This is their definition of their final victory. They claim to have patience able to wait centuries. Jews had the patience to wait two millennia to return to their ancestral homelands which were defined in Torah from three millennia ago. Sure, let it be a test of patience, we still have plenty in reserve. But more acts like this and the Israeli public will be demanding action to punish all these transgressors and to end their occupation of Israel.

 

But this act was intended to horrify Israelis. It should horrify anybody who has even a modicum of civility. People need to step back a moment and look at which side is building a nation which will benefit all of mankind and the other is out simply to destroy everything in their goal of fulfilling their hatred for the other. Israel offered to allow any Arab willing to live in peace from those who had fled to behind the Arab lines at the onset of their invasion. The Arabs who had fled believed the Mufti’s promise of sharing in the riches of the Jews after their glorious victory. Exactly what the Secretary General had described was the outcome most of the world expected, especially many Europeans from both sides of the just ended World War. When that was not the result and after Israel offered to allow the Arab return, their Arab brothers locked them up to use to crush Israel and to use as a pawn in the media and at the United Nations. They have suffered needlessly and for that the nations in which they have been imprisoned should be made to absorb them. Many Arabs in these camps have relatives who live in the city neighboring the camp. There are such camps within Gaza and the Palestinian Authority. Palestinian Arabs are kept in refugee camps by Palestinian Arabs. One of them just brutalized a seven-year young child. His was an act of domination just as had occurred just like during the massacres of the Mongols. This was an act harboring the origins of the horrors of past wars. Echoing the past as the Rape of Nanking, Viking raids, the conquests by barbarians throughout human history. This was an aberration peculiar to periods and mindsets of periods we had hoped mankind had evolved beyond. This was an act of primitive barbarism.

 

The question comes down to whose lands these are and under Islam everywhere is supposed to be ruled by them, though each group believes their Imam or ruler should rule everyone. The Palestinian Arabs had all the opportunities and choices open before them. They could have joined in building the lands for the benefit of both people. They could have chosen a relatively wealthy society with opportunities available to those with the drive to take them. Instead they chose to destroy, defile and putrefy everything they touched. Theirs is a society based upon hatred and destruction. You can leave Israel out of the equation and simply look at the actions of the PLO in Jordan and the PLO in Lebanon. The essence of their intents no matter their location or whose nation they are attempting to topple and destroy, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon or wherever they are found. During the Syrian civil war, which is still raging, the Palestinian Arab refugee camps was one of the initial flash-points in the early fighting. Theirs is the outlook of the world reflected with equal barbarity by the Islamic State, specifically when they were dehumanizing the Yazidis raping every female of almost any age. This is the world they want to spread as far and wide as they are able. This is what has occurred in much of Europe in the cities where Islamic gangs prey on Christian girls. One need look to England, in Manchester where they had Islamic grooming gangs which industrialized rape. Some will claim that what happened in this case was just one case and not anything which can be seen as troubling. Would the ‘it should not trouble anyone that women are being groped, raped and often grievously injured with some requiring hospitalization across Europe’ change their thinking. When such attacks are occurring in Sweden, Germany, France, Italy and Netherlands for further examples and we could continue. But right now, we are concerned with one specific example of what is obviously not just an Israel problem.

We keep meandering away from the rape of a seven-year young, and we keep emphasizing young because that is part of why this crime was so beyond all decency. This was a crime for which there is no suitable punishment. This rape cries out for equal pain, suffering, agony and torture of the spirit to be imposed on the rapist and his accomplices. The rapist had been arrested, but for reasons which escape us, the accomplices are still free. That needs to be rectified. What will be the end result of this unconscionable act? The state prosecutor’s office will take their time and allow as much time to pass as possible in order to have a trial with as little outside protest as they are able. They will sentence the perpetrator according to cold statistical measures and believe it is all over. That is not what required addressing. This miscreant is but one piece of a much larger problem which extends well beyond Israel, we have just been on the front line, the tip of iceberg and the only part which is visible and obvious before the world. Israel is the crux where this creeping, engulfing, divisive, supremacist, exclusionary infiltration permeating much of the Western Developed world and is subjected to scorn as others blame the victim for the criminal act of self-defense. One can bet that if a not too dissimilar crime were to be happened upon by an armed Israeli who shot the rapist, the headlines across Europe would be ‘Israeli shoots Palestinian in the Back’ and it would be the fourth or fifth paragraph when the activity of raping a young woman by the Palestinian Arab would enter into the articles. This is what Israel has faced and is the reason why this unthinkable criminal act is being ignored by most of the world, it was in Israel and they deserve what they get, not like the Europeans who are simply being left in the dark about their own difficulties. Yes, there exist articles about the criminal wave which has struck Europe with sex crimes at the top of the list of things the European public has been told they need to accept, it is simply a cultural thing. Just a cultural thing, allow that to sink in and then start to get upset. Why upset? Because it is your culture that the government is not enforcing and instead foisting a foreign culture upon the indigenous Europeans.

 

What to do about these problems? The first step is to have the media start reporting the truth. Next is the police need to enforce laws and apply them to the incoming immigrants. But that would lead to a war in the streets, that is not worth it as it would make things more difficult. Where does anybody honestly believe that allowing another culture to come in and exist, according to the governments, side-by-side in peace and happiness. Well my friends, it will not remain or ever actually match that description. This is a culture war and if you do not fight it now, then you will lose later, those are the choices. You can surrender and become nice little Dhimmis or your can decide that the culture which your society has lived and developed for two millennia is worthy of saving. Of course, that will require the people getting engaged and actually doing something. The government, authorities, law enforcement and everybody else, possibly even the military, are telling the people that everything will be fine, it is just an acclimation process. What they are not telling you is that it will be you doing the acclimating and the Muslims dictating how your culture will become. This is why the European elite hate Israel, we decided to fight for our culture and they are incensed that Israel is making them look in a poor way, the Jews are showing them up and they have no answer. This is the result of the Secular Humanist outlook where no culture is worth more than any other thus your culture is unworthy and not in need of defending because it has no value. This is the mindset of your leaders and they are going to allow all of Europe to go down without even a murmur, and they will come down on you should you make too much fuss. Just accept your fate as it was the lack of the current generation having children which brought on the necessity of importing immigrants to work, but the ones they have brought are not working, they are lying in wait until they reach the tipping point where they can take over and rule Europe. You continue to be silent and that will be your future, meanwhile, here in Israel we will keep right on screaming and making a fuss. We want to live and to do so as our own people with our own culture building our future. The Palestinians have no interest in their future, they simply seek our destruction, and Europe wishes we would allow this silently. We will not, what about you?

Methodology of Leftist NGO’s and Their Enablers

 

Some are amazed at the apparent support that exists for the farthest leftist causes and how they inundate companies resulting in sufficient influential force to have these companies alter their business practices. The greatest example of this has been the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanction) efforts against Israel. Such charities as Oxfam have been pressured to forcing a choice upon their chosen international representative, Scarlett Johansson. The problem is that the well-known actress, Scarlett Johansson, was also in advertisements for the company SodaStream, which at the time had a factory in the Shomron which many claim is rightfully belonging to the Arab Palestinians. Scarlett Johansson chose to remain the representative for SodaStream and stepped down from Oxfam. There is a further development on this story. When SodaStream built a new factory, they also bent to the pressures and built the new factory within the Green Line. This resulted in hundreds of Arab Palestinians losing their jobs. That BDS pressure sure is helping these Arab workers, but they are just collateral damage in the war to destroy Israel. Destroying the Jewish State by claiming to assist Arab Palestinians more often than not harms these very same people causing them to become unemployed from Jobs which paid higher wages than any other including Palestinian Authority positions including their Security Forces. The only higher paying jobs for these people are to become terrorists and murder Israelis in order to gain an early retirement income from the Palestinian Authority. Perhaps this is the real reason for the BDS Movement; force Arab Palestinians into unemployment until they become so desperate they are willing to kill innocent Israelis in order to generate a permanent income for them and their families.

 

The latest target of the BDS Movement has been the real estate listing service, Airbnb. They have censored their listings removing those beyond the Green Line which belong to Jews as well as those in the Golan Heights. We would like to quote NGO Watch found in the article titled, “The New Israel Fund encouraged the Airbnb boycott of Israel.” NGO Watch noted:


“This change in policy was a clear result of a coordinated and well-financed campaign targeting the company by NGOs involved in BDS (boycott, divestment, and sanctions) campaigns against Israel, led by Human Rights Watch (HRW) and Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP), in concert with the UN Human Rights Council (HRC), at least three Israeli groups, and the Palestinian Authority. The funders responsible for this campaign include a number of European governments as well as the US-based Rockefeller Brothers Fund.”

The above-mentioned article contains other references for any interested in finding any additional information.

 

So, this is how these numerous groups on the far left can organize to apply so much pressure on companies, governments, charities and other organizations including international organizations. This amount of organization is impressive and gives the appearance that these groups have hundreds, thousands and far more in some instances. Their tactic is to inundate their target with e-mails, snail mail, phone calls directly to top officials’ numbers when they are able to procure them and press releases to every media source on the planet castigating their target for their obvious questionable actions, support, locations or political leanings. Their tactics actually use their most active and dedicated members to assume numerous identities in order to magnify their pressure. This can be accomplished through simple subterfuge. One easily adopted methodology is for members to apply for numerous e-mail accounts using different names from the many numerous free e-mail services. By attaining a second e-mail address, one can then apply to another service using both of these e-mails as identification. Then they can use three of these e-mails to gain three additional addresses from their first e-mail provider. Now they have seven with which to get additional addresses all under different names and one can see how with the numerous free e-mail providers, one can accumulate a great number of e-mails all under separate names identifying the sender. Then, when they need to pressure anything which has crossed the targeting of their NGO or organization, they send a single e-mail from each of the addresses amassed with a different message. These messages do not need to be elaborate, though a small number will be more fervent than the rest, and send these to the targeted entity which will soon get the feeling that they are facing a massive populist movement with potentially millions of supporters. These NGOs who master this ploy maximizing their effectiveness are rewarded with additional funding from government and the numerous arms of the United Nations and other supportive groups, as noted in the above NGO Watch quotation.

 

Do not even bother to ask whether this is proper or legal, as such is of little concern when there is a cause to support and force upon some unsuspecting victims. It is the cause and only the cause and whatever it takes is all fair in love of cause and the war to impose it upon the public. Unfortunately, the laws which might be applied would be a stretch as they would need to apply racketeering laws, fraudulent representation or some related or similar laws. The people would play the innocent victim of the state attempting to intimidate them in their efforts to make changes in the world and make it a far better place. Any such attempt would result in a media feeding frenzy which would only serve to further amplify the efforts by these dedicated leftists. Well, don’t rightist groups also use these tactics? Even if this was so, there is a huge difference between most right wing groups and the left wing groups, especially the ones on the far left, and that is a little thing called intersectionality. Intersectionality is a very interesting idea which further amplifies the voice of leftist groups because of the way it links them all into mutual support. Even finding a group of right wing people who share sufficient ideas to form a group is difficult, as we found when attempting to put together a campaign for office. The difference between right and left can be simply described. For two right wing groups to coordinate, they will be required to go through every last political position and should they not agree in total, then they will split and each go their separate way and not coordinate or only loosely coordinate. This does not lead to right wing groups working together and part of why there are so few right wing large demonstrations; you just cannot herd that many right wing groups together and have them play well together. Intersectionality is a weapon which works mostly on the left.

 

There are some exclusionary properties to intersectionality. It normally is used in order to enlarge demonstrations by bringing in supporters from varied groups to support one another and to make every demonstration appear to be more highly active and supported than it is in reality. This also works when supporting political candidates. Take the Women’s March as an example. They were also supported fully by BLM (Black Lives Matter), anti-fa, Amnesty International USA, an SEIU chapter, the Mothers of the Movement, the National Center for Lesbian Rights, the National Organization for Women (NOW), the National Domestic Workers Alliance, and the Muslim Women’s Alliance for starters. In the end it was reported that there were over four-hundred supporting groups filling the ranks of the march to highly impressive numbers. But there are some lines which must not be crossed, and anything outside of those lines is shunned and often banned from supporting these preferred movements and from receiving support from this core group included under intersectionality. The shining examples of such ostracized groups are any which support Israel. With groups such as the BDS Movement, BLM, Muslim Women’s Alliance and numerous other ardently pro-Palestinian Arab groups along with others which simply denigrate Israel as the greatest oppressor in all of history, eclipsing the empires of the past from the Babylonians to the British, there is no room for any Jewish group which has not sworn to the destruction of the Jewish State. This came to a head in the 2017 Chicago Dyke March where a group who displayed multi-colored flags with a Star of David was denied permission to participate in the parade. That was topped this year with numerous Palestinian Flags being displayed and, of course, the Jews denied again participation. Israel has received a permanent black spot as far as the inclusive intersectionality leftists are concerned.

This has become a major incident concerning the Women’s Movement as Teresa Shook, one of the original co-founders of the Women’s Movement, has declared her ire at the anti-Semitic leanings of the new leadership and demanded they step down as they have been completely ineffective in preventing hate from seeping into the movement. Teresa Shook took to Facebook and stated:


“As Founder of the Women’s March, my original vision and intent was to show the capacity of human beings to stand in solidarity and love against the hateful rhetoric that had become a part of the political landscape in the U.S. and around the world. I wanted us to prove that the majority of us are decent people who want a world that is fair, just and inclusive of Women and All people. We proved that on January 21, 2017 (and in the U.S. this past midterm with a diverse electorate).

Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour and Carmen Perez of Women’s March, Inc. have steered the Movement away from its true course. I have waited, hoping they would right the ship. But they have not. In opposition to our Unity Principles, they have allowed anti-Semitism, anti- LBGTQIA sentiment and hateful, racist rhetoric to become a part of the platform by their refusal to separate themselves from groups that espouse these racist, hateful beliefs. I call for the current Co-Chairs to step down and to let others lead who can restore faith in the Movement and its original intent. I stand in Solidarity with all the Sister March Organizations, to bring the Movement back to its authentic purpose. As Women’s March founder, I am stepping up to bring focus back to the Unity Principles on which our movement began, and with the support of all of those who marched and have continued to march, I pledge to support grassroots, decentralized leadership promoting a safe, worldwide community devoid of hate speech, bigotry and racism.”

The results of this should be interesting but we hold out little hope for Teresa Shook to regain control over the movement she helped to birth as the new leftists represented by Women’s March organizers, from left to right, Bob Bland, Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez and Tamika Mallory are going to simply push her aside as inconsequential and blame it on her support for Israel when their real reason is that she is a proud Jew.

Control of the future of the Women’s Movement and the face-off mentioned above will be a telling result which will indicate whether or not the Jews have any future on the left. There is far more at stake than demonstration rights and inclusion with the intersectionality group, also at stake is the future and control of the Democrat Party which is rapidly falling into the hands of others just the same as the new leadership in the Women’s Movement. This has been a long time building and was obvious to any observer whose eyes were open and they were not sleeping at the wheel. The left has become weaponized and their sites are currently merely on Israel, but from there it will be a short hop, without even requiring a skip or a jump, to anti-Semitism. The reality is their singular targeting of Israel and no other nation for harming the rights of supposed minorities, despite recognizing that Israel supports the LBGTQ rights, claiming this is merely to hide their sins against the Arab Palestinians which Israel does not rule or have any legal influence upon, is a form of anti-Semitism. They do not even require the hop; they just need be honest which is something we expect to surface in the very near future. The Jews living in the United States reside in a fool’s paradise and are blithely unaware of the target which is being place on their heads. We have seen this exact playbook almost to the letter in too many historical settings to miss seeing the future and the difficulty which will soon start to become even more evident as the Jews start to become confused because none of what will happen will make sense to them. They will claim that they mean those other Jews and will live on in denial until, once again, it is too late. There is another side to these coming realities, and that is that Israel has to wean herself from all United States aid and start producing all her weapons and munitions within her own borders and do so with some urgency. Dark clouds are on the horizon.

Defining the Difference

Filed under: Israel — qwertster @ 1:56 AM
Tags: , , , , , , , , ,

 

The difference between the Arabs and Israel is stark and completely accepted as defined by both sides. The Arabs, in the form of the Palestinian Arabs, admire and celebrate death. The Israelis take their love of life from Torah and their basically libertarian views. As a matter of fact, the Arabs have proclaimed this difference when they proclaim, as did Osama bin Laden, “We love death as you love life.” The terrorists have proven the validity of this time and again. Often when there is a terrorist attack, they refuse to stop after murdering one or two people, they often continue to attempt to murder more people until they are stopped, almost as if their main aim was their own death as being more important than the deaths of others. We have witnessed this on far too many occasions here in Israel. This was proven with the Gaza rioting, which has continued despite the agreement to a ceasefire, when they continue to charge the border fence and fly incendiary kites and balloons into Israel knowing that they may be shot. There is proof of the extent to which Israelis love life, which is that even the terrorists who are murdering others, or destroying large regions of fields and other lands, the IDF follow their instructions to aim to maim and not to kill. Israel prefers to take terrorists into custody rather than simply eliminating these criminal threats to our society. To put this into reference, the police in almost every jurisdiction in the United States, particularly in the major cities, are instructed that if they are required to use their weapons, they are to fire for center of body mass with the full intent of neutralizing, read kill, their target. There is no aim for their feet or maim the criminal when you must shoot, you are to kill them preferably with a minimum number of bullets, though often the officers neglect the directive to use a minimum number of bullets. Even in many European nations, you know, the enlightened people, also instruct their armed and Special Operations officers to shoot to kill and to do so as efficiently as possible. These districts almost appear to be more concerned with saving bullets than lives. In Israel, our forces are trained to shoot to end an attack but not to kill the terrorist.

 

Probably one of the most striking trials proving how seriously the IDF takes what they define as an improper shooting, especially when resulting in the death, even of a terrorist, was the fairly recent trial of Sergeant Elor Azaria who was convicted in the death of a terrorist he shot while he was in custody. The terrorist was not restrained and Sergeant Elor Azaria claimed that he suspected the terrorist was reaching to explode a bomb belt. His claims ran contrary to some comments he had made in the barracks after the shooting which placed that excuse in sufficient suspicion that he was convicted. The conviction was also political as there was the intent to impress upon IDF soldiers that they would not receive any leeway should their actions result in a death, be it a terrorist, criminal or even combatant. From things we heard, many soldiers were spooked by the result of the episode concerning Sergeant Elor Azaria’s shooting case and some even had confided that they were now apprehensive towards the use of potentially deadly force even when lives might be under threat. They were worried that should they shoot a terrorist who was stabbing people that they might be tried for using unnecessary force as it might be believed that the use of their firearm would be considered improper and that they might be expected to instead use their hand-to-hand training to disarm and subdue the terrorist. This was not a solitary case as Lieutenant Colonel Shalom Eisner lost his command for striking a European activist with his rifle butt. Lieutenant Colonel Eisner was reacting to a series of provocations including one during this engagement where his finger was broken which we believe was caused by the person he eventually struck. He was taken from command and thus ending any chance for advancement largely due to the videos provided by the European activists who initiated this engagement with the IDF with the intention of provoking any violent result. Lieutenant Colonel Eisner had attempted to calm his men and took a position between them and the activists which resulted in his injury and this eventually lead to his striking the activist in order to back him out of his face where the activist had been shoving him and shouting and spitting in his face. There may have been more to the actions taken against Lieutenant Colonel Eisner for reasons not related to the incident, but that is for another time and the fact remains that he was punished for basically defending himself from further injury.

 

The Israeli political and military elite will use soldiers to actually perform search and destroy missions into areas of concern where rocket launchers and arms storage are located or region which are know as terrorist strongholds. On the surface, this appears to be an obvious means of performing such necessary maneuvers. The reality is that most western powers when similar operations are required only send their soldiers into such areas after reducing much of the area to rubble with air power. The most often implemented tactic is to use high explosive bombings followed by incendiary, read napalm, bombing making the area fairly cleared of any threats to their soldiers who are performing what are referred to as mopping-up sweeps. The IDF does use air power before sending in their soldiers but they do not drop bombs or incendiaries, they drop leaflets informing the civilians that there is about to be military operations in the area and that they should depart the area for their safety. The usual question which follows is asking does that not warn the terrorists that the IDF is coming with their soldiers. The answer is, of course it does but that is a risk the IDF takes, or at least the command takes with the lives and safety of the soldiers far down under their command. Colonel Richard Kemp is an observer who has given testimonies to the Human Rights Council, the United Nations General Assembly, the European Union and anywhere else which would provide him with a forum where he has testified to the threats faced by Israel and the IDF and the extraordinary restraint and limited use of force with the full intent to minimize civilian casualties even at the cost of IDF soldiers’ lives. We have included some of his commentary below starting with his commentary of the recent Gaza demonstrations. Richard Kemp has been a commander in the British military as an Infantry soldier and officer as well as a commando commander. He has been a dependable human rights and observer of the conducting of war within the international rules of warfare. The last video is a speech given in Norway under invitation to clear the invectives which have been leveled against the IDF. He refers to studies done and other expert commentaries which have been conducted. All of his speeches below are worth hearing.

 

 

 

 

Israel and Hamas, Islamic Jihad, PLO and other Palestinian Arab efforts cannot be any more different in every way and means. When it comes to the lives of Israelis, the difference is to be expected. Of course, the IDF is formed to protect the lives of the Israeli civilians while the terrorists desire dead Israelis and go to great extents to kill Israelis, especially Israeli civilians as that increases the terror and fear factor. What becomes more difficult to grasp is that the IDF and the government behind them are more concerned with the lives of Palestinian Arabs than are the terrorists. The terrorists very often place their rockets and arms stores inside schools, including United Nations run schools, they place launchers and weapons stores within and near hospitals, while the Hamas main command bunker sits under Shifa Hospital. These are simply a few choice examples and there are many more including the fact that Hamas uses human shields including children as the United Nations concluded in their own research. Of course, this discovery does not lead to any condemnations from the Human Rights Council as there was no feasible way to blame Israel. The UN’s Human Rights Council has issued more condemnations of Israel than of all other countries combined. You cannot make these things up, it is not necessary when you have the United Nations General Assembly during their 2015 session adopting twenty resolutions singling out Israel for criticism with only three resolutions on the rest of the world combined. We could list a similar proclivity for the European Union adopting condemnations of Israel but we will simply limit it to a picture of the result of their adopting the BDS demands to label certain goods made within Israel. This is being done despite the fact that the Oslo Accords left Area C as completely under Israeli legal and security control and was expected to become part of Israel and is where all the so-called “settlements” are located, many are actual cities with all the requirements to make them legal, but why allow reality get in the way of condemnation and economic sabotage against Israel. The amusing result was people were found seeking these labels on wines, cheeses and produce as well as other products in order to purchase them.

The difference is also in the expectations of the world as shown above. What it comes down to is very simple and can be expressed in the simplest of terms. The world expects the Arab groups dealing with Israel to act as barbarians while they expect that Israel fight them as the perfect example of human restraint. Where Hamas is expected to break every rule of law, Israel is expected to never cause any collateral damage. Part of that expectation was brought on ourselves when we used smallest possible charges when targeting Hamas and Islamic Jihad commanders and leadership such that in a number of cases we struck their vehicle and succeeded in killing the Hamas officer in the rear seat, injuring the person sitting next to him in the back seat and left the driver barely injured. Hamas officers took precautions since this was operational by surrounding their vehicles with children which ended the targeting Hamas officers when in their vehicles. The world has simply set a diametrically opposite set of demands upon Israel and the Arabs set on the destruction of Israel. This allows for anything to be done if it will destroy Israel and almost no effort which has even the slightest violence which might even cause a boo-boo to be used in defending Israel. We have a name for such a double-standard; we call it anti-Semitism. When you have a separate set of standards which are applied only to the one Jewish State in the world and an unbelievable lenient set of rules only applied to the enemies of Israel and only when they are fighting or murdering Israelis, that is anti-Semitism. What is the difference when defined, anti-Semitism, nothing less.
