The spin of so many to be biased against Israel is beyond bewildering.
Witness this week alone:
- Israel is expected to respect the United Nations the world insists – yet, in the latest act of lunacy, Richard Falk, an official for the U.N. Human Rights Council, blamed the bombings at the Boston marathon on “Tel Aviv” and America. Yes, you read it right – According to the U.N, America and Israel are to blame for the Boston Bombings. In his op-ed entitled “A Commentary on The Marathon Murders”, Falk wrote “(A)s long as Tel Aviv has the compliant ear of the American political establishment, those who wish for peace and justice in the world should not rest easy,” and also “In some respects, the United States has been fortunate not to experience worse blowbacks, and these may yet happen..” Bewildering.
- When Muslim Arab countries do things, it’s described differently than when religious Orthodox Jews do similar things. This week, it didn’t attract much noise when the northernmost emirate in the United Arab Emirates warned of fines for women who wore bikinis and men wore brief trunks. Worldwide media including The Associated Press attributed the signs to “local families who didn’t like sharing the sands with tourists showing too much skin.” The report went on to detail “different social mores” in the country – quite different than when Orthodox Jews act similarly in Israel. It’s instantly worldwide headlines and “religious extremism” and Hillary Clinton likes segregated buses to the pre-segregation South, meanwhile worldwide Associated Press stories.
- The Association for Asian American Studies stated purpose is to “advance the highest professional standard of excellence in teaching and research in the field of Asian American Studies; promoting better understanding and closer ties between and among various sub-components within Asian American Studies: Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, Hawai’ian, Southeast Asian, South Asian, Pacific Islander, and other groups.” Somehow, within that mission they voted to boycott Israeli Universities. What that has to do with Asian-American studies apparently no one questioned – but when it comes to the Jews, things never seem to make sense, do they?
The Whole World Has Gone Insane.
