Mistreatment of the Palestinians

The poor Palestinians, the Israelis are starving them and also expelling them...well, actually not, its the Syrians who are starving them, preventing all food supplies from entering the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp near Damascus, and its the Egyptians who are expelling them, about 1,300 Palestinians are being expelled from Egypt for participating in anti-Egyptian activities, in other words supporting Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood. Now if Israel were really doing this to them it would make major news headlines around the world, but since its only other Arabs, who cares what happens to the Palestinians.

This selective concern for only those who are supposedly the victims of Jewish mistreatment is a clear example of anti-Semitism. Let me know if you see or hear of any protests against Syrian or Egyptian mistreatment of Palestinians near you. I can safely predict there won't be any. On the other hand, the ubiquitous pro-Palestinian groups will be demonstrating at a campus or supermarket near you, pushing their baseless BDS campaign and claiming that Israel is some kind of "apartheid" state. Only infantile minds with no serious grasp of reality could believe such crap.

At the same time, Israel has intercepted another arms shipment, 40 long range missiles on a cargo ship being transported from Iran to Sudan for trans-shipment to Gaza. What were the poor, starving and oppressed Palestinians intending to do with these rockets there, eat them? Feed them to their starving kids? No, shoot them at Israel in order to kill Jews.

In another context, the two passengers using stolen passports who boarded Malaysian Airlines flight 370 to Beijing that has disappeared and is thought to have crashed in the sea as a result of a probable hijacking, are now known to have been Iranian. It may be premature to speculate, but since Iran is busily exporting terrorism around the world, this is likely another example of their contributions to civilization. Nowhere is safe from Iranian missiles and terrorists.

In another incident, a Jordanian judge was shot dead at the Allenby Bridge crossing between Israel and Jordan by Israeli border guards. Appartently in a fit of Islamic fervor he shouted "Allahu akhbar" and charged the guards and tried to wrest a gun from one of them, he was warned and shot and then when he persisted he was shot again. Israel has apologized to Jordan for this incident, although a preliminary investigation shows that the border guards acted properly. A joint Israeli-Jordanian team will investigate the incident.
