Looking Jewish in Israel

Reader comment on item: The Fatal Stabbing of Angelo Frammartino, Palestinian Apologist

Submitted by Jay (United States), Aug 28, 2006 at 21:46

Dr.Pipes is a master at pointing arrows at problems. He is to be commended for pointing out that when Angelo Frammartino was killed as a Jew,all was fine. The mistake that was mourned was not the killing, but the fact that Angelo was no Jew. So implied the Palestinian spin doctors. But is that surprising?Is the Palestinian spin surprising?

The answer is no. It seems as though all the surrounds of Israel attend the same Medical spin school. Consider this recent lesson. According to the moderate Arab nations and the tearful President of Lebanon, Hezbollah began the recent problem in Lebanon, but having said that, it was joyful and appreciative to see Hezbollah resist the Israelis. Resist the Israelis? What resisting? Hezbollah attacked and killed the Israelis.

Its the same message conveyed in the Angelo story. Wrongs aside, its ok to kill Jews. Avoid non Jews. I'm sorry for Angelo and his family. Being naive is no crime. But apparently looking Jewish at Herods gate in Jerusalem is.
