Amongst Palestinians, speaking well of Zionism can be a capital offence. At least that’s what Tory Mayor of London Boris Johnson learned while leading a trade mission this week to Israel.
So the next time you hear someone badmouthing Israel as a foreign aid bludger on the United States, you can set them straight by quoting Barack Obama’s Secretary of Defense to the effect that Israel saved American lives in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Social media turns murderers into heroes and the world wants to focus on the victim’s response to terror rather than the terrorist’s act. And so the Palestinians once again bring suffering to both Jew and Arab.
