There’s been a lot of talk by the EU’s press and certain politicians about ‘Nazis’ during the recent EU elections, the rise of what’s referred to as the anti-semitic right and how dangerous it is for EU Jews. And of course. the politicians now in power pledge to fight anti-semitism.
Let’s see how that works in real life, shall we?
Yesterday in the Israeli town of Har Adar just northwest of Jerusalem, one of the Arabs whom call themselves Palestinians murdered three Jews in cold blood and critically wounded another in a shooting attack.
Nimer Mahmoud Ahmed Aljamahad been given a job in Har Adar (so much for ideas of promoting peace by bolstering ‘Palestinian’ economy) and had an Israeli work permit, so he had access to the town. He simply brought his gun to work and shot the Israelis in the back from ambush. He was then shot and killed by security forces in the town.
United Hatzalah is a something of a unique organization in Israel and in some Jewish communities in the Diaspora as it mostly consists of volunteer emergency first responders. One of them, Moshir Abu Katish,from the Israeli-Arab town of Abu Ghosh, described the scene of the attack.
“I was alerted to the attack by the United Hatzalah dispatch center and I raced over to the scene [of the attack], which took place near the fence of Har Adar. Security forces had shot and killed the terrorist who had carried out a shooting attack against a group of Israelis who live in Har Adar.”
” Unfortunately, the three more seriously injured people in the attack were pronounced dead at the scene. A fourth person who was injured we treated at the scene before he was transported to the hospital for further treatment and observation.”
Hamas, of course took credit fo rthe attack and celebrated this latest ‘martyr.’ So did Fatah, Mahmoud Abbas’s party who runs the Palestinian Authority, the people Israel is expected to make peace with.
This is from Fatah’s official Facebook page, which of course Facebook would never think of censoring or removing. It’s a picture of the killer, Nimer Mahmoud Ahmed Aljamahad. The caption reads: “In the name of the Fatah movement, we share the sorrow of the family of the shaheed (holy martyr) Nimer Mahmoud Ahmed Aljamal who was killed in the operation today.”
Fatah also wrote: “He who carried out the operation in Jerusalem is shaheed Nimr Mahmoud Ahmed Aljam”
The PA Ministry of Health claimed – wait for it – that Aljamal died because he was shot by ‘occupation forces’ of course not mentioning that he had murdered three Israelies. Needless to say, Aljamahad’s family will now go on Mahmoud Abbas’s payroll with a nice monthly stipend courtesy of all that donor aid money.
But now, let’s looks at the reaction from the U.S and especially from the EU.
President Trump’s Special envoy Jason Greenblatt condemned the deadly terrorist attack and criticized Hamas for praising it.
“My family & I are horrified by the attack in Har Adar. Shame on Hamas and others who praised the attack. All must stand against terror!” Greenblatt tweeted.
“We pray for the victims of today’s attack at Har Adar, and their loved ones as well,” he added.
U.S. Ambassador to Israel David Friedman also condemned the attack, calling the shooting a “cruel” and “evil brutality” and an act of “unprovoked terrorism”.
“Once again, Israelis confront the cruel and evil brutality of unprovoked terrorism,” Friedman wrote on Twitter. “We pray for the victims at Har Adar and their families.”
The EU also formally condemned the attack.
“There can be no justification for such a crime and attempts by Hamas to glorify the attack are reprehensible. Violence and terror will only achieve more loss and pain and must stop,” said a statement from the EU spokesperson.
“The European Union offers its deepest condolences to the families of the victims of the shootings,” the statement added.
You’ll notice that the EU condemnation doesn’t mention Abbas and Fatah. In fact the only one who mentioned Hamas and alluded to ‘others’ without naming names was Greenblatt.
And now we get to the real meat of the story.
You see, Hamas and Fatah are in the process of coming to an agreement about putting a unity government in power, thanks to the aid shutdown to Gaza Abbas and Fatah were able to engineer among the donor nations. Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah and other PA ministers announced a plan to take administrative control over Gaza, and Ismail Haniyeh, Hamas’ political leader, said Hamas was willing to cede control to the PA provided Abbas responds with what Haniyeh called ‘practical steps.’ Haniyeh is talking about Hamas retaining control of the Hamas police force (and of course, its military), retaining exclusive authority over the border crossings, and of course, an increased share of donor money. In other words, Hamas would retain practical control over Gaza using the western-backed Abbas as a shield and a cover for its activities.
Remember that Hamas is an officially designated terrorist group in both the EU and U.S. who just condemned their activities so heartily.
And here’s the punchline…both the UN and EU have specifically offered help and assistance in putting these two terrorist groups together, as well as continuing to fund and empower them.
Which means you can take that ‘condemnation’ and flush it in the toilet for all it’s worth in real terms. Apparently Hamas isn’t so reprehensible to the EU after all.
Yes there’s a lot of talk in the EU’s media and from politicians like France’s Macron and Germany’s Merkel about the rise of the right and the danger to Europe’s Jews. Some Jews are even gullible enough to swallow it. But here we see the reality of these same EU politicians ready, willing and able to help genocidal terrorist groups unify against Israel. And oddly enough for their supposed concern for Jews, conditions for the Jews in their countries continue to deteriorate, thanks to all the Muslims these politicians happily imported to their countries from the most anti-semitic countries on earth.
What a coincidence.
Say what you want. I certainly wouldn’t imagine AFD, the Swedish Democrats, Geert Wilder’s Partij voor de Vrijheid (Party For freedom) or Marine Le Pen’s Front National sending money to these terrorist murderers. Or importing more of those Muslim ‘refugees’ who have made Jewish life in Western Europe so hellish.
No it’s the Eu bureaucrats on the Left, the ones in power that do that sort of thing. They’ve conveniently forgotten that the Jews are just the canary in the coal mine, and figure that if they can just give the Muslims the Jews and lean hard enough on Israel, they’ll have peace. But of course, it won’t end there.
It never does.
When it comes to the EU, Jews and hypocrisy there are simply no limits.
