Iran Clarifies the Middle East

Dennis Prager hits the bullseye with this piece.

Israel not only has the world’s most experienced crews in quickly finding survivors in bombed out buildings, it is also a mere two-hour flight from Iran. In other words, no country in the world would come close to Israel in its ability to save Iranian lives quickly.

But none of this means anything to the rulers of Iran. The Islamic government of Iran has announced to the world that it is better for fellow countrymen and fellow Muslims ñ men, women and children ñ to die buried under rubble than to be saved by a Jew from Israel.

That is how deep the hatred of Israel and Jews is in much of the Muslim world.

Hundreds of millions of Muslims ñ Arab and non-Arab, Sunni and Shia ñ hate Israel more than they love life. Leaders of the Palestinian terror organization Hamas repeatedly state, “We love death more than the Jews love life.” And now, Iran announces that it is better for a Muslim to asphyxiate under the earth than be rescued by a Jew from Israel.

Naive Westerners ñ which includes most academics, intellectuals, members of the international news media, and nearly all others on the left ñ refuse to acknowledge the uniqueness of the Arab-Muslim hatred of Israel and Jews. Yet, there is no hatred in the world analogous to it. Not since the Nazi hatred of Jews has humanity witnessed such hate.

Western naifs like to believe platitudes such as “Deep down, all people are really the same,” “All people want peace,” and the great untruth of multiculturalism that no culture is morally superior to another. That is why they choose not to face the truth about the Nazi-like hatred that permeates the Arab-Muslim world and the consequent moral gulf that exists between it and Israel. It shatters too many of their illusions.

The two reactions ñ Iran’s preference for Iranian deaths to Israeli help and the Jewish state’s instinctive offer to help save Iranian lives ñ ought to be enough anyone needs to understand the source of the Middle East conflict.
