Today, Andrew Sullivan continues his descent into the most febrile, frenzied Jew-hatred imaginable.
If there were ever any doubts about Sully’s anti-semitism ( there aren’t as far as I’m concerned ) and general dementia, he’s put them to rest.
Today’s racist screed consists of Sully using an unsourced, anonymous video sung in badly accented Hebrew that could have been made anywhere to accuse Jews of glorifying Baruch Goldstein, a doctor who killed a number of Arabs in a mosque and on whom more later:
Having forcibly evicted Palestinian families from their homes in East Jerusalem, the new inhabitants sing songs in praise of the mass murderer Baruch Goldstein. And you really think the decision to make the site of that massacre a national heritage site for Israel had nothing to do with this association? Maybe AIPAC will wake up one of these days and see the reality that less informed and educated observers cannot miss.
As with most things in life, ol’ Muscle Glutes is looking through the wrong end of the telescope.
It’s his Arab pals that glorify murderers on a routine basis, not Israel. In fact, I defy this sad excuse for humanity to find me one example of an Arab the Palestinians have punished in any way for killing a Jew. Israel, on the other hand, has a long record of insisting that its citizens obey the rule of law when it comes to the Arabs.
That double standard in and of itself is proof that Sullivan has a ‘problem’ with Jews.
As for the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron, the Israelis actually attempted to share that with the Muslims. Their reward for this open-mindedness was to find anti-Semitic graffiti scrawled all over the shrine and to discover that the Palestinians had actually urinated and defecated in the area used to store the Torah scrolls.
I realize that Sully delights in being a G-dless cretin except when it suits him, but the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron is a Holy site for Jews that the Israelis need to protect because of the routine desecration it receives from the Palestinians, just like every other Jewish religious site the Arabs have ever gotten their hands on.
So…who was Baruch Goldstein anyway? He was a skilled medical doctor who found himself operating as an emergency physician during the Palestinian intifada and was charged with treating the civilian victims of Arab terrorism on a daily basis.
On February 25, 1994, Dr. Goldstein was passing by the mosque in Hebron, allegedly heard the worshippers inside chanting “Chrad al Yahood!” ( “kill the Jews”)and snapped. He entered the mosque and opened fire on the assembled Arabs, killing 29 Muslims there and wounding another 150 before he was disarmed and lynched by the survivors.
Far from being honored, Goldstein was vilified by the Israeli government…very unlike the way the Palestinians treat people like child murderer Sami Kuntar and others of his ilk.
One has to condemn Dr. Goldstein’s actions, but – just as we’re always told about the Palestinians and their murderous rampages – you have to understand his rage.
It’s really a pity for Sully that Der Stürmer or The Völkische Beobachter are no longer in publication, as I’m sure he could find a ready market for his talents there. However, I’m certain that Al Ahrum or Al Manar can fill the gap and make up for it.
