When interviewing a Jewish woman at the unity march in Paris, BBC Reporter Tim Willcox had the temerity to admonish her, “Many critics of Israel’s policy would suggest that the Palestinians suffer hugely at Jewish hands as well.” This was a woman who herself might have been murdered in that very supermarket earlier that day. Clearly, this man lacks sensitivity and benevolence, and could never have visited Israel. He evidently attended the march not as a reporter of events, but as one whose ideology was to challenge its purpose where Jews were concerned.
The march was called and attended by more than 40 world leaders because Muslim terrorists killed 17 people – 13 for what they did (publish a satirical newspaper) and four for what they were, Jewish; Willcox attempted to justify the murder of the latter. His later retraction of the comment and explanation did not evidence an understanding of the Middle East with respect to Islam’s 1400-year history of carnage in the name of their god, conducted with the intent to establish a worldwide Caliphate and Sharia law. The Jews have always stood against tyranny and inequality, from the Biblical days of Pharoah to the present. Where Israeli law specifies liberty and equality for all, Islamic law specifies subjugation and inequality. Willcox, who has drifted into bigotry before, doesn’t get it, or doesn’t care to.
Even now, when Africa is afire with burning churches and villages and the streets are strewn with thousands of dead Christians, Willcox cannot focus on the offenders. European cities are being flooded with armed forces in search of jihadi cells that are priming to kill, but Willcox’s only conclusion is that Jews are the cause. Apparently, if not for the Jews who live quietly from day to day, and work and contribute to their country’s welfare, Europe would be safer. Similarly, if not for Israel, where Jews have become among the most innovative on the planet to create new products and discover cures for mankind’s diseases, the Middle East would be calmer. Indeed, if not for the Jews who are morally and legally entitled to their one one-thousandth of the magnitude of land controlled by Islam, there would be Utopia on earth. And by the same perverse logic, if not for the Jews, Islam would be a religion of peace… Well, except that then, less distracted, the Muslims could turn their full demonic attention on the rest of the ‘infidels” of the world.
