Anti-Semitism As I’ve Never Seen Before

As a person who was not alive during World War II, I cannot remember a time in my life when there has been so much hostility directed at Jews (and Christians), and nobody in the media seems to think much of it.  In fact, a lot of people are coming out in support of it.

On the Jewish front, how many nations have come out backing the whack-job alleged “aid ships” that are carrying God knows what besides food in to Gaza?  Pretty much everybody.

Would we let the Iranians send a ship into Guantanamo with “aid supplies” for the prisoners being held there?  No, of course not.  We have a right to prevent our enemies on our soil from taking “supplies” that will be used against us.  And that is exactly what is happening in Gaza.  These people have picked fights with Israel since its inception, and the Israelis are just supposed to sit there and take it?

No, they have a right to defend themselves and their land.  And yes, it is their land.  If you don’t believe it is their land, I’m sure you are okay with giving Texas back to Mexico, because that would be the same thing.  To the victors go the spoils.  That’s just how it is.  If the Palestinians didn’t want to give up land, they shouldn’t have started wars with Israel giving it an opportunity to claim those areas as needed buffer zones.

And what has our dear president said about this situation?  Not a whole lot.  You know it’s bad when your strongest defender in the administration is Joe “This is a big f—ing deal” Biden.  That doesn’t exactly instill confidence.

Then you’ve got loud mouthed idiots like Helen Thomas telling a Rabbi that the Jews needed to “get the hell out of Palestine.”  At least she got fired for her statements (or, I’m sure she’d tell you “resigned”), but there are lots of other liberal talking head idiots out there on news channels saying the exact same thing.

I’ve even read about some schools in Britain (which has a fast-growing Muslim population) that have stopped teaching about the holocaust for fear of offending or “upsetting students whose beliefs include Holocaust denial.”

Do I agree with the Jewish people on everything?  No, like for example, the issue of Jesus comes to mind.  But they are our spiritual brothers, and they have suffered more as people than just about any other race or nation on Earth.  We should be on their side.  Not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because, if we were attacked, we’d want someone on our side, too.  And that’s not going to be anyone from Palestine.

“THEY CAME FIRST for the Communists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Communist.

THEN THEY CAME for the trade unionists,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a trade unionist.

THEN THEY CAME for the Jews,
and I didn’t speak up because I wasn’t a Jew.

THEN THEY CAME for me
and by that time no one was left to speak up.”

-Martin Niemöller

Emily Geiger writes from a conservative perspective on everything from politics to religion to pop culture. Like the original Emily of Revolutionary War era, this Emily is delivering important messages crucial to winning the raging war of the time, but today, this is a culture war rather than a traditional one. And, like the original Emily, sometimes it takes a woman to do (or say) that which lesser men lack the courage and tenacity to do.
