Blackmailing Europe

It isn’t hard to spot the difference in the press’s reaction to Israel’s carefully targeted response to the hail of missiles raining down on Sderot from Gaza, and the Lebanese government’s bombardment of a Palestinian “refugee camp” where terrorists belonging to Fatah al-Islam are holed up.

Lebanon’s action is — rightly — seen as a legitimate act of self-defense against a Syrian-backed attempt to destabilize its government. Israel, by contrast, is condemned for its decision to retaliate against the Hamas leaders who are ordering indiscriminate attacks on its civilians.

Right now, far more Palestinians are dying in the civil war between Hamas and Fatah, or between the Lebanese army and Islamist terrorists, than those who are being killed by Israel.

There is nothing new about this disproportion. In fact, since 1945, the number of Muslims killed by other Muslims outnumbers those killed by Israelis by a factor that far exceeds 100-1.

The death toll from the civil wars, genocides, and insurgencies that have raged across the Islamic world from Algeria to Indonesia simply dwarfs the numbers killed in the Arab-Israeli wars or the Palestinian intifadas.

Yet, here in Britain, as elsewhere in the West, the demonization of Israel is relentless. Press coverage during the run-up to next month’s anniversary of the Six Day War has been uniformly hostile. A vociferous campaign to lift the European Union’s boycott of the murderous Hamas regime is gaining ground, and, in any case, the aid is still flowing to the terrorists through all kinds of backwaters.

  1. Alene Assads Seniors massakre på muslimske ekstremister kostede jo ca. 25.000 arabere livet. – Har selv været i byen, der jo er ganske interessant af historiske grunde. Envidere “praler” de lokale på tragikomisk vis af, at Hama har verdens største hotel (der er bygget et fint turist-hotel oven på den største massegrav, så logikken er, at der er 500 beboere over jordoverfladen, og 15.000 “i underetagen” (sidstnævnte gruppe tilbydes dog vist nok ikke room-service)).

  2. På Uriaspostens artikkel om Alain Finkielkraut: “Folk drømmer om en verden uden Israel og med en pacifistisk islam. “

    kan man blandt andet læse følgende, som sætter denne artikel i perspektiv:

    “»Israel er i dag meget upopulær over hele verden, for man tror, at uden det Israelsk-palæstinensiske problem ville man ikke have den islamiske trussel. Folk drømmer om en verden uden Israel og med en pacifistisk islam. Det er en af de stemninger, man møder overalt i disse dage. Men selvfølgelig må vi adskille legitim kritik og had…«. ”
