Some 70 years after high school students, shopkeepers and doctors stood with their backs to the wall of the ghettos and sang, “Never Say You Walk Upon Your Final Way” while reloading their pistols, a rally organized by “Jews Say No” gathered to protest against Israel for defending itself.
The Partisan’s song of the ghettos was a courageous affirmation of life by those who went off to fight in Warsaw and in Jerusalem. And today there are the ugly chants of those who deny that affirmation. Who insist that the Jews are better off dead. Their rhetoric cloaks this agenda in the occupation,
Jerusalem Post columnist Larry Derfner wrote on his blog that, “the Palestinians have the right to use terrorism against us.” Of the terrorists who killed eight Israelis last week, “however vile their ideology was, they were justified to attack.”
Larry Derfner is honest, if equally vile, he doesn’t bother justifying the genocidal Islamism of the post-PLO order, instead he settles for justifying the murders without regard to ideology. It doesn’t matter what you believe anymore, or what you’re fighting for, the left now extends the right to kill Jews without any belief test. You can be on the left, you can even be on the right, you can have beliefs identical to those of the Nazis, but with an Islamic veneer. It’s all good.
