Israeli militants murder a Jew by accident and then apologize on grounds that they thought he was an Arab, to the silence of Israeli society.
Jews enter Arab villages in Israel to machine gun women and children.
Israeli public figures routinely threaten the United States with terror attacks.
Bin Laden is a folk hero in Tel Aviv.
Jewish assassins murder American diplomats and are given de facto sanctuary by Israeli society.
Israeli citizens celebrate on news that 3,000 Americans have been murdered.
Israeli citizens express support for Saddam Hussein’s supporters in Iraq in their efforts to kill Americans.
Dr. Hanson went on to say that he had confidence that most Americans can see the moral differences in the present struggle. Perhaps the American people can, but apparently our President and State Department cannot.
Dozens of Arab terrorist organizations, including but not limited to, Hamas, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, the PFLP, the DFLP, the PFLP-GC, Fatah, the PLO, Hizb-ut-Tahrir, Ansar al-Islam, Jayyish Allah, Sayyif al-Jihad, al-Jama’a al-Islamiyeh, el-Qaeda and others, all unabashedly proclaim their intentions to destroy Israel, a close, loyal and strong ally of America. In the context of that commitment to Israel’s destruction, they also emphasize their intention to exile or murder all of Israel’s Jews. Hezbollah goes even further with Hassan Nasrallah’s publicly announced aspiration to genocide all Jews everywhere: “If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide” (quoted in an interview with Arab journalist Badih Chayban, in the Beirut Daily Star, October 23, 2002).
The endless Arab diatribe of destruction and relentless rhetoric of annihilation (thoroughly documented during decades of Arab hate-speech and hate-preach here and here) have gone on unimpeded and unabashed, broadcast throughout much of the Arab and Muslim world since before the creation of the State of Israel. And Arab deeds have matched their words for almost seventy-five years, with equally relentless terrorism punctuated by full-scale wars when Arab leaders thought they would easily win.
Countless times, Arab confrontation states and their terrorist proxies have violated international law, the UN’s Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, and the Fourth Geneva Convention, with terror attacks on Israeli women and children, mistreatment, torture and slaughter of Israeli prisoners, and incitement to genocide.
On the other hand, every action by Israel to seek a peaceful resolution, thirty one attempts since 1937, has been rebuffed by the Arab side with war or terrorism or vociferous threats of the same.
The Palestinian national movement is the only one of its kind in the entire world, and across all of world history, whose sole paradigm is terrorism and whose unique and unrelenting goal is the destruction of a sovereign state and the genocide of its citizenry.
One should not have much trouble recognizing the moral differences between the two parties in the Arab-Israel conflict. But our State Department wants Israel to provide the PA with millions of dollars, even as the PA continues its incitement and rejects every invitation to negotiate a peaceful settlement, even as the PA’s partner, Hamas, continues shooting qassam rockets into Israeli schools, synagogues, busses and homes.
There is no excuse for our leadership’s moral confusion about this conflict. Demanding that Israel underwrite Arab efforts to destroy her is ludicrous. Equating mass murder, attempted mass murder, incitement to genocide, and innumerable attacks on civilians with the construction of apartment buildings is not merely erroneous and misleading. It is obscene.
