COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN THE INDEPENDENT

 

“Israeli soldier who shot dead wounded Palestinian has prison sentence cut by a third

“Elor Azaria will walk free after serving nine months for killing Abdul Fatah al-Sharif as he lay motionless on ground”

 

Nothing like the state actually encouraging brutality.

Israeli soldiers and police have been let off scores of times following cold-blooded killing or frightful abuse.

It all reminds me of backward parts of the American South where local sheriffs were long free to terrorize any blacks or liberals sympathizing with blacks. And there are still pockets of that to be found.

What on earth did the Palestinian people ever do to deserve their fate?

The Holocaust was the work of Germans against other Germanic people (the Ashkenazi who dominate Israel and Zionism) on another continent, three-quarters of a century ago.

Yet the Palestinians must endlessly pay the price, a terrible price.

And, of course, the Israeli injustice is strongly supported by America, a country which absolutely refused to take any refugees before Hitler began the Holocaust. It was quite blunt about it.

And a country whose great companies and wealthy people greatly assisted Hitler’s rise and early success.

The American Bund in the 1930s was a big movement in America, one whose uniforms and practices looked for all the world like the Nazi SA.

Possibly the most anti-Semitic book ever written was written by an American, a rich and famous one, Henry Ford. Hitler quite admired him.

And America was a country which had literally institutionalized many aspects of anti-Semitism right up into the 1960s.

The Ivy League Universities (very much including Harvard) and many important institutions had strict quotas on the number of Jews who were accepted.

Many American clubs and fraternal organizations banned them completely.

Yet today, this “brave” country with its stunningly cowardly and prejudiced past is the great defender of all things Israeli, that is, so long it’s the Palestinians paying the price.

Just shameful, all of it.
