“Death to Jews” vs “Death to Arabs”

Last night, palestinian Arabs burned an effigy of a Jew with payot (sidelocks).

The silence from the Israel-hating crowd, which often claims they are anti-Zionist-not-antisemitic, has been loud and clear – including from the likes of the Neturei Karta, who look like the effigy themselves.

(Heck, it isn’t the first time they’ve been in the crosshairs of their so-called allies)

Meanwhile, I am sorry to say that that this was not the only incident last night of folks expressing genocidal wishes.

The response to this has been swift in its condemnation (with only a few lost souls justifying it), and there have been reports that some of the perpetrators were arrested.

Every society has its bigots. The question is: how does the society react to them? While it pains me that such bigots exist in our midst, I take comfort in knowing our society as a whole deplores their conduct. I only wish the majority of palestinian Arabs and their supporters felt the same way about theirs.
