A rainbow of reasons for violence against Jews

Violence against Jews is on the rise. And so are excuses for it, as a couple of recent examples (among a rapidly growing list) demonstrate.

This past summer, “Free Palestine” was spray painted on a synagogue in Wuppertal, Germany. A couple of days later the synagogue was firebombed.

On Thursday, the perpetrators of these crimes were sentenced to a few hours of community service. And the judge had quite a statement to make about the three jihadists who committed these acts, noting that what they did had nothing to do with anti-Semitism and everything to do with trying to bring “attention to the Gaza conflict.”

Oh. I see.

Not to be outdone by some judge in Germany, a couple of days later President Obama went on record with a stunning (and not in a good way) description of the terror attacks against Jews at Hyper Cacher supermarket in Paris last month, saying:  “It is entirely legitimate for the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a bunch of violent, vicious zealots who behead people or randomly shoot a bunch of folks in a deli in Paris.”

Pardon me, but it was not “a deli.” It was a kosher supermarket. In this case, the distinction is critical. And it was not a random shooting. It was an intentional shooting. It was jihad.

And it was not a “bunch of folks” that were targeted. It was Jews who were targeted for the sole reason of being Jews. (And no matter who they were, it was despicable to breezily refer to victims of jihad as “a bunch of folks.”)

Not only does Obama make these disgusting statements, but no one challenges him when he spews this filth.

He needs to be called out. By anyone and everyone. In any and all forums. Every. Single. Time.

Obama has inspired me to get on my high horse and stay there. I invite readers to do the same. Better yet, help an uninformed or misinformed person find the truth, and find their voice, while seated high on a horse.
