A classic example of measured discourse from the left.
One of the ironclad laws of the Muslim world in relation to Israel/Jews is this simple formulation:
Whatever atrocity the Muslims accuse Israel of committing, is, in fact, being perpetrated by Muslims.
Item: The Muslim world and its enablers on the left accuse Israel of being an apartheid state. Of course over a million Arabs, Muslim, Christian and Druze are citizens of Israel. There are Arab members of the Knesset, and an Arab on the Israeli supreme court. There are Arab officers in the IDF. Israeli society, open and democratic, bears zero relationship to the South African apartheid state to which it is being compared.
In contrast, the Arab Muslim world is effectively an apartheid system. Jews are all but gone from the Arab Muslim world, expelled over the past sixty years, the wealth and property of the 800,000 Arab Jewish refugees stolen or taken in, er, taxes. And now Christians have been targeted for elimination from all Arab Muslim states.
The Palestinian Authority has publicly announced that any future Palestinian State will be judenrein, an apartheid state.
Item: The Arab Muslim world, like clockwork, accuses Israel of perpetrating a holocaust against the Palestinians.
If such a charge were true, the Israelis must be the most inept genociders in the history of the universe. For how is it that Gaza, a terrorist state, and an easy target, has not been flattened by the IAF and turned into a nice big parking lot.
Of course, the Arab Muslims were allies of Hitler in World War II. There were even Muslim SS soldiers. Haj Amin Al-Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem was led, by Heinrich Himmler, on a guided tour of Auschwitz for a first-hand lesson on how to murder Jews on an industrial scale.
The Hamas covenant calls for the annihilation of the Jewish State and the murder of every Jew on the face of the earth.
Which brings us to liberal progressives and their ghoulish charge that a conservative climate of hate is responsible for the Tucson massacre.
The above formulation—in effect, blood libels—applies to liberal progressives, for they have adopted the Arab Muslim tactic of committing acts which they attribute to others.
Yesterday, I wrote that Sarah Palin and the Tea Party have become the Jews of the political and social world to the progressive left. Objects of slander and blood libels, Palin, Fox News, Glenn Beck, Bill O’Reilly and Tea Partiers are the chosen scapegoats in the fevered imagination of liberal progressives.
But liberal progressives are, in fact, only looking in the mirror, just as the Muslim world looks in the mirror when it hurls blood libels at Israel/Jews.
If heated rhetoric were responsible for a climate of hate, then President Barack Obama is a major contributor.
Let’s list a few golden nuggets from that paragon of measured rhetoric:
And referring to Americans who have the chutzpah to disagree with Democrats:
Meanwhile, Michelle Malkin, herself a frequent “Jew” for the left, lays out an Illustrated Primer of the Progressive Climate of Hate 2000- 2010. It is as damning as it is irrefutable.
And the always brilliant Barry Rubin analyzes the Arab Muslim world that is held captive and hypnotized by trulymurderous rhetoric.
When one crazed or ideologically obsessed gunman named Jared Loughner starts shooting in Arizona, people condemn him and start bemoaning the state of their society. How about a place with ten million people like that who are treated as heroes?

Let’s end with a report on the always classy and reasonable Hollywood liberal Sandra Bernhard calling for the “gang rape” of Sarah Palin by “big black brothers.”
