IAW -as, alas, most know -is the annual festival of scorn and propaganda against the world's only Jewish state, an annual attempt to depict Israel as being in the same moral sewer as South Africa in the days of apartheid.
IAW tries to do much with big words like apartheid and genocide and racism, where they really do not apply at all. Israel is not perpetrating a genocide against the Palestinians. Nor is Israel a racist state. . . .Did I miss Saudi Arabian Gender Apartheid Week? Or let's take another example: This very week in Libya, there is a zealous tyrant turning fire on his own people. Is there, or has there ever been, a Gadaffi Apartheid Week or its equivalent anywhere?
Even as injustices multiply against Christians in various Middle East countries, as Egypt roils with sectarian outrage, why is there not the same righteous fury that grips all the groups who annually appoint themselves scourges of the "Zionist entity" against the perpetrators of those depravities? Their moralism is so singular.
Read the rest here. But what I want to know is where is "Arab Genocide Week?"
Rick Moran has a post describing an all-too-common tragedy in the Middle East here. Terrorists broke into a Jewish home in a settlement in the West Bank and murdered 3 children including an infant and their parents. They are baby-killers. And the reaction of the Arab population? From American Thinker:
Meanwhile, YNet reports the reaction of Palestinian residents of Rafah:
Gaza residents from the southern city of Rafah hit the streets Saturday to celebrate the terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar where five family members were murdered in their sleep, including three children.
Residents handed out candy and sweets, one resident saying the joy "is a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank."
These are the barbarians the Israelis are up against. Yet Western Leftists and their Muslim allies call Israel the apartheid state. The truth is that the Arabs are doing their best to drive Jews out of their countries and out of the Middle East altogether. If any group is committed to anything in any way similar to what South Africa practiced, it is the Arabs. Only they are worse; they won't be satisfied with apartheid, they want genocide.
