Samaria terror shooting exposes two-faced global antisemitism

Whether the world admits it or not, whether they know it or not, they are animated solely by hatred for the Jewish people.

Palestinian terrorists yesterday killed a Jewish grandfather (Yitzchak Zeiger) and a Jewish high school student (Uria Hartum) in the shooting attack at Eli in central Samaria.

You can imagine that if the roles were reversed, if Jewish gunmen had killed a Palestinian grandfather and a Palestinian teenager, the story would receive a lot more attention worldwide.

Major newspapers in the West would for days on end carry front-page headlines exploring the phony phenomenon of “Jewish settler violence,” while cable news networks would interview ad nauseam any and every Palestinian they would find willing to besmirch the Israelis.

But the victims were Jews, and the killers were Palestinians, so there are no calls for investigations or special White House press briefings or emergency UN Security Council meetings.

And this again shows you that it isn’t really about supporting the Palestinians, or any other “downtrodden” people group, of which there are many around the world who don’t receive a fraction of the attention the Palestinians do.

What about the hundreds of thousands who are oppressed, starving and under imminent threat of violence in Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Nigeria and a dozen other places in Africa and Asia? What about the tens of thousands being killed every year in the drug wars of Central and South America?

We hear very little, if anything about them. If all the Western leaders and newsroom editors and mobs of social justice warriors were truly animated by a genuine concern for human suffering, they’d be making at least as much noise about the Armenia-Azerbaijan death toll, or the piles of corpses in Myanmar, or the hundreds of thousands of casualties in Ethiopia’s internal conflicts.

But they’re not. Whether they admit it or not, whether they know it or not, they are animated by hatred for the Jewish people.

Antisemitism isn’t dead. It just wears a new mask.

One response to “Samaria terror shooting exposes two-faced global antisemitism”

  1. Jake Wilson says:

    Very good article; hits the nail on the head.

    I started reading, “Israelophobia: The Newest Version of the Oldest Hatred and What To Do About It” by Jake Wallis Simon, and can highly recommend it (though, I think, it leaves God out of the equation).

    IMO, the current fulfillment of Zechariah 14.2 is a mere prelude to God avenging the Jewish people for 2,500 years of Gentile affliction.

    “Then how much more will the Father avenge his own chosen ones, who call on him day and night, and grant them respite? Or do you think because he delays for them, he will not do it? I say to you, he will take vengeance for them quickly.” (Lk 18.7-8)
