Why You Never Saw Footage of Muslims Also Abusing Those Proselytizing Christians in Jerusalem
Yesterday I shed light on the libel of Jews harassing and abusing Christian tourists in the old city of Jerusalem. In short: the video being disseminated was edited and did not show the full story: the women were Christian missionaries provocatively trying to get Jews to believe in Jesus, on the Jewish Sabbath of all days. And while this did not fully excuse the actions of the young children, it certainly explained what motivated them to be nasty to the women.
Too many people were hoodwinked by the video, including the very pro-Israel Ben Shapiro:
Vile and inexcusable https://t.co/AUxapUGU1j— Ben Shapiro (@benshapiro) September 12, 2023
but for the most part, those sharing it seem to have had an agenda in doing so – namely to demonize the Jewish people.
One to do so was this Blaze TV Host with over half a million followers:
This is a hate crime.— Lauren Chen (@TheLaurenChen) September 12, 2023
It's a fact that anti-Christian sentiment is rising in Israel.
But I have yet to see any of the neocons who shill for the country call attention to this. https://t.co/a0nchDM6UQ
Her use of the word “shill” indicates to me she is no impartial person when it comes to Jews or the Jewish state, and she sees no problem with the women missionizing to Jews; on the contrary, she sees it as a religious imperative:
It turns out that the same women missionaries proselytized to Muslims also in the old city of Jerusalem – who also abused them – but you didn’t (and I suspect won’t) hear about it from Lauren Chen and the others claiming it showed a Jewish hate crime against Christians:
No prizes for guessing what lies behind this double standard towards Jews.
Update: You can see more such scenes at her YouTube channel:
