Stories About Jews Who Died

Fewer Jews in Israel died than Palestinian attackers

in a battle where the targets of all rockets aimed by the attackers were civilian.

The defense by holier-than-you-Jews fairness-hijackers

of the attackers, is comparable to the denial of a Shoah where the death of six million

Jews is treated as a lie. The victims’ number is discountable

when they are Jews, for whether there are more or less of them than their deliberate killers,

what happens to the Jews is never accurately accountable

in stories told not just about their lives but deaths by dastardly deceit distillers.


Inspired by an article in Tablet¸ 5/20/21, by Bernard-Henri Lévy (“Eyeless in Gaza: Do I support a Palestinian state run by a fundamentalist terror cult that targets civilians?  No, I don’t”)
