Reader comment on: False Moral Equivalence as a Tool to Demonize Israel
Submitted by Josephine Bacon, Apr 18, 2016 06:51
Anyone with the slightest knowledge of what life was like under Apartheid or under Nazi occupation (excluding what the Nazis did to the Jews) would know that to accuse Israel of similar behaviour is nothing short of pure antisemitism. It is perpetuating the massive lie, the one that Goebbels shrewdly realised would always be believable. Hillel Neuer, director of UN Watch was interviewed recently in the Jerusalem Post, and in it, he revealed the strategy employed by the 56 countries in the Muslim block in the United Nations to demonise Israel so that there would not be too close an investigation of their dictatorships and the atrocities they commit on a daily basis against their own people. The PLO even used the terrorist hijackings in the 1970s and 1980s as a blackmail threat to ensure that western countries voted for PLO-sponsored resolutions. To their eternal shame, the countries of the West complied. It is quite impossible for leading anti-Israel activitists (who are nothing but closet antisemites) like Carter and Tutu to actually believe what they say. No doubt they are offered threats and inducements.
