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