Dershowitz on Pinkwashing & Cartoon of the day
Alan Dershowitz nails it in his latest article in the NY Post (Hat Tip SB). Which inspired our cartoon of the day.
“The anti-Semite just knows that there’s something sinister at work if Jews do anything positive. The core characteristic of anti-Semitism is the certainty that everything the Jews do is wrong, and everything that’s wrong is done by the Jews.
To the anti-Semite, every depression, war, social problem, plague must have been the fault of the Jews. Whenever the Jews seem to be doing good — giving to charity, helping the less fortunate, curing the sick — there must be a malevolent motive, a hidden agenda, a conspiratorial explanation beneath the surface.
Today, the twisted illogic that has characterized classic anti-Semitism is directed at the Jewish state, which for the anti-Semite has become “the Jew” among nations.
So when Israel sends help to tsunami and hurricane victims, the ideological soulmates of the pinkwash brigade accuse the Jewish state of merely trying to garner positive publicity calculated to offset its mistreatment of Palestinians. When Israeli medical teams save the lives of Palestinian children, they must be up to no good.” Read the whole thing HERE.
