The past few weeks (in the world of TERRORISM) have been bad for everyone; everyone that is, except the disseminators of anti-Westernism, anti-Democraticism, anti-Americanism, and anti-Semitism.
Somehow though, everything that’s wrong with the world, seems to be Israel’s fault. Or the fault of the Jews.
Terrorists blow up two Synagogues in Turkey. It’s Israel’s fault. Or the fault of the Jews.
Terrorists blow up the British Trade Commission and two British banks in Turkey. It’s Israel’s fault. Or the fault of the Jews.
Terrorists attacked the USA on 9/11. it’s Israel’s fault. Or the fault of the Jews.
Iraqi resistance is Killing Italian, British and American soldiers. It’s Israel’s fault. Or the fault of the Jews.
It seems that Israel (Jews) is the reason for everything horrible that is happening in the world.
If Israel would only be nice. Better yet. If Israel would just cease to exist everything would instantly be better.
That seems to be the message.
And for the murder of Jews in Israel at the hands of Islamists and Arab TERRORISTS. It’s not the fault of the murderers. It’s Israel’s fault. Or more succinctly; the fault of the Jews.
My father fought and bled as a Canadian soldier during five years of the Second World War. He distinguished himself fighting in France, Belgium, Italy, the Netherlands and Germany, way above and beyond the call of duty.
Yet, as a young boy, I personally remember hearing people talk about fighting the Jews’ war, while in reality, cemeteries worldwide are filled with the bodies of Jewish soldiers who fought Nazi tyranny.
Was it Israel’s fault, or the fault of Jews that European Catholics and Protestants murdered each other for generations?

Was it Israel’s fault, or the fault of Jews that the Germans decided to murder 6,000,000 men, women and children in cold blood, simply because they had Jewish genes in their DNA? And then another 6,000,000 who were not Jews at all?
Was it Israel’s fault, or the fault of Jews when Stalin crushed most of Europe, including all who fell under his reign?

Everything evil that has happened prior to 1948, including the two World Wars could not possibly have been Israel’s fault, since Israel didn’t exist. But all of that evil happened nonetheless.
And everything evil that has happened since 1948 has had nothing whatsoever to do with Israel or jews. Yet; to hear it from the intellectuals, the elitists, and much of the Media. It’s all Israel’s fault.
The German economy was in turmoil after the First World War. The Treaty of Versailles left Germany fiscally hopeless and eternally humiliated. The entire planet was in an economic tailspin. Yet; Germany managed to finger the Jews for all of their ills.
To Right Wing Germans, it was Jewish Socialists responsible for their economic debacle. To Left Wing Germans, it was Jewish Capitalists who were the bane of Germany’s social predicament.
And to virtually all of Germany: Jews lived well. Therefore; all the ills that befell Germany must have been the fault of the Jews. What else could it have been?
But it wasn’t only in Germany. France was no less kind to Jews. Neither were Poland, Hungary, Ukraine, Croatia or Russia. To name but a few.
It seemed to the whole world, even prior to Israel, that everything bad that happened to humanity could be blamed on the Jews.
And now, 60 years after the Holocaust, this is the exact same message we are hearing again. It’s all the fault of the Jews. Except now, instead of saying the Jews, they say Israel. The meaning is exactly the same.
I wonder just how big a Wall Jews really need to construct in order keep out the evil. To me, it seems like the Wall could never be quite big enough, since it appears, that to much of the world, it will always be the fault of the Jews.
The more that changes. The more that stays the same.
