Our worst enemies come from our womb. And it proves yet again that no matter what your religion, race or creed, leftism trumps all. It infects and destroys the soul. These people worship at the church of liberalism, that is their G-d. How miserable they must be.
Michael Freund writes me the following, "The hypocrisy of Israel's left was on full display this past week as they sharply condemned the move by two Jewish families into an eastern Jerusalem neighborhood. Consider the absurdity of it all: To be liberal nowadays means to support imposing segregation in Jerusalem and prohibiting Jews from living in certain neighborhoods because they are Jews. And to be considered peace-loving, you must approve of restricting where Jews can purchase apartments. Go figure.
As I argue in the column below from the Jerusalem Post, it's time to call the Left on this point and challenge it to address the issue head-on. Let's stare down Israel's segregationist Left and its supporters, and compel them to face up to the folly of their position which, ironically enough, seems to have been taken straight out of the Ku Klux Klan's playbook".
Staring Down Israel's Segregationists By Michael Freund
The Left, once again, is in an uproar.
Along with its international comrades, it is bristling at the recent court-approved move by Jewish families into homes in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of Jerusalem.
This is in addition to the fury it expressed previously over plans to build apartments for Jews at the site of the privately owned Shepherd Hotel in the eastern part of the capital.
Mustering all the righteous anger at its disposal, the Left has now launched into a heated round of pious pontification, hurling invective and frenzied rhetoric as if the world itself were coming to an end.
The Ir Amim organization, for example, recently warned that if the Shepherd Hotel plan moves forward, it might "deal a fatal blow not only to [US President Barack] Obama's efforts but to the two-state solution."
No less hysterical was the reaction of Robert Serry, the UN's special envoy to the Middle East, who released a harshly worded statement saying: "I deplore the totally unacceptable actions by Israel in which Israeli security forces evicted Palestinian refugee families... to allow settlers to take possession of their properties."
Calling the move "provocative," Serry asserted that it will "heighten tensions" and "undermine international efforts" to bring about peace.
Have these people fallen on their heads?
