Israel shows the world the bankruptcy of Leftist beliefs Why the Liberals Hate Israel
There is much discussion these days of why the Media and liberals in general are so anti-Israel. It should be obvious to any casual but attentive observer that the media has a bias in favor of the Muslims and in opposition to Israel. Stories about the Gaza war have headlines like “Israel Resumes Gaza Strikes After Cease-Fire Lull - ABC News” or BBC News - Gaza conflict: UN accuses Israel over Jabaliya attack. In fact, a scan of the headlines suggest that Israel was and is the aggressor, while Hamas was minding its own business and only defending itself.
his, of course, has the whole conflict completely backwards; Israel was attacked by Hamas when they began firing rockets into populated Israeli territory, and Israel responded in a quite civilized fashion, giving warning shots before destroying buildings used as missile silos and whatnot. Hamas is purposely using civilians as human shields, and the laws of war state that a military may indeed kill such civilians if necessity dictates. And Hamas violated the cease-fire within under two hours of its imposition, firing rockets into Israel. Yet the media gives Israel the blame. Why?
Why does the Left hate Israel so much? Why is anti-Semitism rising across Europe? Why are the Jews so hated?
There are a number of answers to this question. For one thing, the Jews represent a European-type peoples who “invaded” the “peaceful” Islamic culture of Palestine, in the ignorant view of the Left. They represent a new type of Crusader class, only instead of bringing Christianity they are bringing a kind of Judeo-Western commercial culture that liberals believe is at the root of all Western evil. This is nothing new; modern liberals, indoctrinated to hate capitalism in all its forms, see the Israelis as the prime representatives of this supposedly Western idea. Liberals believe Man fell from paradise not through pride but through greed, and it was not an angry God who placed this curse on Man but the white Western culture. Destroy the West and we will see a return to a state of nature, a paradise where all share in the common bounty. Israel represents an infection of Western thinking into a pure non-western social order. And the fact that a “brown” people are being subjugated by a white one (even though those white ones originated in that region of the world and are closely related to the “brown” people is immaterial) only fuels their racialist beliefs. The poor, mistreated Palestinians are the natural underdogs in the minds of many of the Progressive Left, and naturally the invading Jews are to blame! (It should be pointed out that there were always Jews in Palestine, long before the British opened the land, and that the European Jews who immigrated there settled largely unpopulated territory.)
This is nothing new. The Jews have been thought of as an invasive species, as a pox upon the purity of the Folks (as Mr. Obama may say) before. As Mark Musser, author of Nazi Oaks, pointed out, the Nazis hated Jews as an invasive species, one that used commerce to draw Mankind away from the pastoral paradise that was his birthright.Musser states:
