"Our War is With the Jews": Main PLO Faction Admits the Truth

Self-proclaimed "progressives" slander Israel as an "apartheid state" but turn a blind eye and silent mouth toward Arab/Islamic terrorism directed at Jews. What is more racist than targeting people for slaughter based on religious beliefs and/or ethnic background? That is precisely what the Palestinian Authority's sickening "pay for slay" program does, and make no mistake that this is about killing Jews, not about "resisting" any so-called "occupation." A leader from the Fatah party--the ruling party in the Palestinian Authority--recently declared, "Our war is with the Jews."  When will President Biden condemn without hesitation or reservation the Palestinian Authority? When will the self-righteous "Squad" speak out against the Palestinian Authority's war "with the Jews"? When will the United States stop pressuring Israel to make concessions that (1) do not create peace and (2) embolden Israel's enemies to escalate their war "with the Jews"? If you are a Michigan voter, please do yourself, your state, your country, and the world a favor by voting for Janice Winfrey over Rashida Tlaib so that we can begin the process of ridding Congress of the "Squad" that can find little good to say about our country, that does little good for our country, and provides aid/comfort to murderous enemies of democracy and peace.

The most recent Arab/Islamic terrorist attack in Israel killed three people and wounded at least 12. One of the murder victims was former Israeli Olympic athlete and current Paralympics and Olympics kayak team coach Barak Lufan, a father of three, while the other two murder victims were childhood friends Tomer Morad and Eytam Magini. Magini was engaged and was celebrating his upcoming wedding. Click the links to learn more about the lives cut short violently, prematurely, and senselessly by Arab/Islamic terrorism. This is what the "Squad" condones, and this is what Amnesty International condones: anyone who tells lies about a democracy while providing support for murderous regimes and organizations is complicit in the murders committed by those regimes and organizations.

Terrorists have easy access to Israel because Israel has kept its borders open so that Muslims can observe Ramadan, but if the Arab/Islamic leaders continue to actively sponsor terrorism and if the Arab/Islamic communities in Israel continue to openly celebrate murderous attacks against Jews then the Israeli government must change its border policies and security policies, because a government's primary responsibility is to protect the lives of its citizens.

The Palestinian Authority and the Arab/Islamic states that sponsor the PA are not secular or democratic, and it is doubtful that they will be any time in the future; their way of thinking, their way of life, and their fundamental goals are diametrically opposed to the United States' way of thinking, way of life, and fundamental goals. Funding the PA is neither smart "realpolitik," nor is it ethical, nor does it further our interests in any way--and the evils that we either finance or tolerate overseas have a nasty way of hitting us when we least expect it: the U.S. government did not care very much about the Arab/Islamic terrorist who assassinated Rabbi Meir Kahane, but years later (after the 9/11 attacks) "a Congressional investigation revealed that bin Laden had paid the legal fees of El Sayed Nosair, the man who murdered Rabbi Meir Kahane on November 5, 1990. Failing to distinguish between good and evil prevented U.S. authorities from fully investigating the Kahane murder and discovering the connections between Nosair, Omar Abdel-Rahman (the 'blind Sheikh') and bin Laden's al Qaeda; at the time, Kahane's murder was blithely dismissed by the media and by the U.S. government as a radical Arab killing a prominent Jewish figure but we now know that this crime was the first terrorist act committed on American soil by the group that eventually attacked the World Trade Center in 1993: bin Laden's confederates failed to bring down the Twin Towers that time but the next group that bin Laden sent succeeded eight years later. The idea that Kahane and bin Laden are equally radical and equally dangerous is an example of the pernicious, fallacious thinking that Vladimir Nabokov called 'poshlost.' There are not two equally valid sides regarding Kahane and bin Laden; Kahane proposed political solutions (with which one is free to agree or disagree), while bin Laden proposed (and delivered) mass murder around the globe; it is impossible to act correctly without making correct distinctions."

Nabokov wrote, "Listing in one breath Auschwitz, Hiroshima, and Vietnam is seditious poshlost." Similarly fallacious moral equivalencies are regularly seen not only on social media but also on traditional media platforms. The inability or unwillingness to make correct distinctions is a major problem infecting our public discourse. 

Israel has a right to exist just like every other sovereign nation. Israeli citizens have a right to live their lives without having to wonder if an Arab/Islamic terrorist is lurking in the street waiting to slaughter them. Israel even has a right to be wrong: no country's policies are perfect, but no one would dare suggest of any other country that it is OK for that country's enemies to attack her citizens and murder them in cold blood. Arab/Islamic countries and organizations do not have a right to engage in murderous attacks that they and others falsely describe as "resistance."
