Hypocrasy: Palestinians living in Israel

Reader comment on item: The Forcible Removal of Israelis from Gaza

Submitted by Rob James (United States), Apr 11, 2005 at 15:56

One thing Walid Shoebat (shoebat.com) pointed out in an interview which I found interesting is the plain fact that Palestinians can live in Israel but no Jew can live in Palestine. One must wonder what the response would be if Jews started emigrating to Palestine without revoking Zionism or recognizing the PA. Israeli Arabs are free to not only preach against Zionism in their mosques, but can live peacefully without recognizing Israeli sovereignty.

Which, If I may, strikes of another parallel. Saudis build Mosques and fund the advancement of Islam in the West, yet we are not allowed to build Churches or send Missionaries to Saudi Arabia. Muslims in the West have complete freedom of expression, Christians and Jews in the Islamic world have precisely the opposite.

Folks, they say Vietnam was lost at home. I believe the same sort of treason is taking place in the domestic war on terrorism. Lefties are welcoming our enemies with open arms.
