Andrew then accuses Israel of insisting on “populating that land with its own people.” Excuse me. We are still talking about the ruins of the Turkish (not Arab) empire – since the Palestinian Arabs have never come to terms with the postwar status quo — and about aggressors who have by all the recognized laws of war forfeited their right to the land by dint of their aggression. Remember whom the Jews are dealing with here, Andrew. Israel extricated 7000 law-abiding, productive Jews from Gaza in 2006 for the sole reason that without Israeli troops there they would be slaughtered by the Palestinians because they were Jews. These are Nazis Andrew, and that is why Kushner’s support for them is regarded with such distaste by people like Jeffrey Wiesenfeld and myself.
You refer to the “brutal bombardment” of Gaza. Excuse me, again, but no. What country would allow itself to be bombarded by 7000 rockets randomly shot into populated civilian areas without such a retaliation? And where was your outrage over these terrorist attacks, or over the fact that 100% of Palestinians support terrorist governments who have sworn the destruction of the only Jewish state on the planet?
And yes, despite your raised eyebrows over Wiesenfeld’s mild statement, the Palestinians have indeed earned themselves a special place in the annals of human depravity. In thousands of years of human suffering there has never been a people that has strapped bombs onto its own children, instructed them to blow up other children, and treated them as martyrs and national heroes when they did. This is a sick, evil culture – an unprecedented national death cult. The suffering of the Palestinians is self-inflicted and no one can release them from their suffering – as the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza has demonstrated – but themselves.
