Denmark does not like the Jews: Jews are being warned not to wear yarmulkes or religious symbols in public for fear of being attacked. Because the anti-Zionists aren’t anti-Semitic, they’re just anti-Zionists who beat up Jewish people who are wearing kippot and Stars of David or mezuzahs. Hello, 1930s.
Darwin award nominee: How stupid do you have to be to draw a toy gun on an IDF soldier? This stupid. And of course, now the Palestinians are rioting, insisting there was no gun. The AP story, of course, does not mention the fake gun until long after the three paragraphs on riots over the death of a teenager. And they make sure to use the word “teenager,” as opposed to when they describe the deaths of Israelis, who are rarely named or their ages given.
Oh, look, HRW is noticing someone other than Israel: They’re calling Syria out on dropping incendiaries. The Scud missiles? Not yet. Let us not forget that Saddam Hussein sent Scuds into Israel and that they can carry a payload of chemical weapons.
Obama, Clinton, hardest hit: Tzipi Livni is saying pretty much exactly what Bibi said about how the world uses a double standard when judging Israel and Israel’s enemies. She points out that eveyrone knows and expects Israel to keep Maale Adumim and other Jerusalem suburbs. And that the world should not use moral relativity on Israel and the terrorists.
Livni said she was frustrated as an Israeli when the international community compared casualties caused by the IDF, which acts to defend Israel and target terrorists, to those killed by terrorists who target civilians.
“The message terrorists need to hear is that there are things that the international community considers illegitimate,” she said. “It is unacceptable that soldiers feel that they cannot act against those who try to harm them.”
Think she’s trying to move to the center? Of course, Krugman, Friedman et al are going to be horrified at her “rightward” turn.
Turkey is now funding Palestinian lawfare: Awesome. The faux mini-statelet of East Palestine is joining up with the Islamist, Israel-hating Turkey regime to try Israel in international court. Hilarity will not ensue.
