The new face of antisemitism

Actually, it’s not a new face at all — it goes back to Mohammed himself, and his paranoid, resentful rants when the Jews refused to accept him as a prophet.  What makes it new is that, thanks to the modern age and the Leftist media, these messages, which used to be confined to backward desert regions, are all the rage, all over the world:

It’s that kind of crap (pardon my language), that allows Reuters to write this kind of crap:

Police said it was a “terrorist attack” — Israel’s term for a Palestinian strike. It was the first time Jerusalem had been hit by such a bomb since 2004.

Or that allows Obama to use only passive voice in speaking of Palestinian terrorism, passive voice so extreme he doesn’t even do the usual passive voice technique of waiting until the sentence’s end to include the noun that did the verb.  Instead, he manages never to include any actor in the sentence at all.  He’s not the only one, of course.

    Book,
    It’s simple.  Make an enemy, preferably someone who has no interest in fighting back (the Jews have always, save at Masada and recent Israeli conflicts) been a good target for this.  They have to be accessable but separate (in your neighborhood but “different”).  They need affluence.  They have to have a large presence in areas where you are seeking common ground.  They must have a reluctance to confrontation, preferably having a martyr complex. 

    For further information on how to unite the disparate regions of Germany – er, um, – the World, refer to der Furher’s manual of political dirty tricks, 1933-36. 

    The Palestinians are the brownshirts, currently useful for firebombs, incidents, and taking casualties from the small pockets of resistant individuals.  They’re disposable – again, refer to the manual of political dirty tricks 1937-39 and the rise of the SS.

    Basic, simple, and evil.  But hey, the press doesn’t want their windows to catch a brick in the night.  Worked real well for the press in ’38 – right?  Uh, right?  Anyone?  Oh, yeah, pretty much all those guys caught it in ’41-43 when the war turned.  But I’m sure they’d be proud of their inheritors.

    Real proud.

    Those Israelis and their crazy terms! I mean, referring to a fatal bombing of civilians as a “terrorist attack”? Who are they kidding? Everyone knows that a fatal bombing of Israeli civilians should be referred to as a “teachable moment.” Or as a “venting of certain frustrations.” Or as “an understandable reaction to Jewish perfidy.” Or perhaps as “a very special episode of ‘Cheers.'” Anything but “a terrorist attack.” I suppose Reuters will mark the 10th anniversary of 9/11 by referring to the attacks as “an exercise in urban renewal.”
