At formal ceremonies, private gatherings and quiet visits to military cemeteries around the country, more than a million Israelis paused this Monday to remember 23,544 IDF soldiers who died during their military service. Since last Yom Hazikaron (Memorial Day), a total of 60 soldiers died and 37 disabled veterans succumbed to their war injuries and were recognized as fallen soldiers.
“She’s a champion of equal rights, except when it comes to Jewish rights,” Foxman said of Sarsour. “She plays that game, ‘I love Jews, I don’t like Zionists.’ Well, I’ve got news for her. Every Jew who’s a Jew prays to Jerusalem, says ‘Im eshkachech Yerushalayim,’ (If I forget you, Jerusalem.) So this is a throwback to 1948.”
This is what is wrong with the West. This is what is wrong with our foreign policies and foreign aid. No country, no group, no organization should receive one thin dime of our money if they support, aid or abet terrorism. Further, no country, no group, no organization should receive Western aid if they impose and support the sharia, creed apartheid, gender apartheid, bigotry, Jew-hatred or misogyny.
Stop foreign aid to Islamic countries and genocidal Islamic groups.
There will never be peace in the Middle East (or anywhere Muslims immigrate) until the Muslim world purges its Quranic texts and teachings of Islamic Jew-hatred, creed apartheid and hate. It’s just that simple. As for the “Palestinians,” I am loathe to sanction the term, as the Jews are the “Palestinians.” Before 1948, there were Palestinians Jews living in the British Mandate of Palestine, and the Muslims were killing them then, too. Palestinianism is a euphemism for Islamic Jew-hatred.
Islam needs a civil war in the cause of humanity. I do not see that as remotely possible. Apart from a small number of stragglers and fantasists, there is no real movement within Islam to change its violent and supremacist tenets. And why should they? They are winning with terror.
