In yet another blow to the so-called Peace Process we read of the following outrage.
The government demolished 75 houses in the Palestinian al-Rimal neighborhood; government officials say the houses were illegally built on public lands. Families occupying the homes demonstrated in front of the Legislative Council.
Where were Arab governments while this was happening? Why didn't the UN pass yet another condemnatory resolution? Where was the British Left while this was going on? Why didn't the EU say something? Why didn't the Norwegian or Belgian governments withdraw their ambassadors? Have they gone soft on Israeli aggression?
The explanation for their unexpected flaccidity of a self-appointed world opinion can be found when the quote is seen without my devious editing.
The Hamas-run government in Gaza demolished 75 houses in the al-Rimal neighborhood; government officials say the houses were illegally built on public lands. Families occupying the homes demonstrated in front of the Palestinian Legislative Council.The supposedly pro-Palestinian Europeans, the Left, and "human rights" organizations come out in full-throated howl when Israelis so much as build new houses near the Palestinians. Here Hamas actually tore down Palestinians' houses without compensation and no one gives a crap.
Does anyone still believe that any of those condemning Israel at every opportunity actually gives a damn about the Palestinians? Tell me again how hostility to Israel is not an expression of Jew-hatred but only sympathy for Palestinians. The Jew-haters themselves clearly don't believe it.
