The Foreign Ministry of Israel is upset at the “disgusting manner” in which European nations attacked their government. To quote a spokesperson for the Foreign Ministry: ‘Israel was assaulted with every minute detail mentioning every mosque that was torched and arguing that state authorities weren’t doing anything to stop settler attacks against Palestinians.” UK Ambassador to the EU, Mark Grant argued, “Israel’s security and the realization of the Palestinian’s right to statehood are not opposing goals.” Who can deny such statements are “assaults” upon the state of Israel?
Let’s change a few words. It is the year 1938 and a group of European nations issue a statement concerning Nazi German attacks on German Jews. “Germany was assaulted with every minute detail mentioning every synagogue that was torched and arguing that state authorities weren’t doing anything to stop Brown Shirt attacks against Jews.” There go those European nations once again assaulting Nazi Germany in an insulting manner.
We are not arguing the Israel government has any plan to kill Palestinians and there is no goal of instituting a Holocaust against Muslims. However, note the similarity in how Israel resorts to the same arguments as did Nazi Germany when minorities are persecuted. The only “disgusting” aspect of this discussion was inability of Israelis to understand torching mosques is reprehensible behavior by people whose ancestors were also attacked by bigots and goons. A Jewish KKK is no different than a Christian one, both are disgusting.
