Defending Israel against rising anti-semitism is our fight

Christine Flowers on

If we can’t do that, why even file for asylum in the first place?

And you know the thing that triggered me the most?

It wasn’t being called profane insults by the people marching down Chestnut Street and chanting their uneducated slogans about the holy martyrs of Hamas. It wasn’t Jake Tapper on CNN, carrying water for Rashida Tlaib and essentially defending her defense of terrorists just so he could make some cute little jab at Marjorie Taylor Greene.

It wasn’t even the refusal of college presidents to come out and unequivocally condemn the horrors in Israel without adding “But the Palestinian children…”

The thing that most angered me was a comment from an anonymous person who played the “I’m a Jew so shut up shiksa” card.

His comment was as follows:

“I am a Jew who does not need a homeland, that supports the resistance of Palestine, and am watching with my own eyes the textbook definition of genocide against Palestinian children.”

The fellow needs to read up on the definition of the word “genocide.”

According to the Oxford Languages Dictionary, it means “the deliberate killing of a large number of people from a particular nation or ethnic group with the aim of destroying that nation or group.”

 

What the Arab world is trying to do to Jews is genocidal, by that definition, but not what Israel is doing to protect itself.

Tragic, collateral damage of people living in an area as human shields to terrorists is not “genocide.”

Trust the shiksa, who has 30 years of asylum practice at her back.

It is incumbent upon non-Jews to speak out against the rising tide of anti-Semitism that we see in this country and in the world. It is not up to our Jewish brothers and sisters to take on the burden alone, even though they are quite capable of raising their powerful voices.

As the Jew and the Catholic marched with Protestant MLK, as my own white father marched with Blacks in Mississippi, every one of us who claims the dignity of being human needs to speak out against the terror.
