“I want you to know,” he told Hussein, “that we are with you until victory, until victory, until Jerusalem.”
On an Al Jazeera television appearance in 2005, Galloway similarly showed his contempt for the West and his strange attraction to jihadism when he accused the United States and Israel of being defiling occupiers who had unjustly asserted themselves into Iraq and Palestine.
“Two of your beautiful daughters are in the hands of foreigners – Jerusalem and Baghdad,” he said. “The foreigners are doing to your daughters as they will. The daughters are crying for help, and the Arab world is silent. Some of them are collaborating with the rape of these two beautiful Arab daughters .”
The perverse union between jihadists and leftists, embodied by Galloway, which might seem initially incompatible, serves both sides well, and is the reason why his presence at the Palestinian Center makes strategic sense. Pro-Palestinians wish to deflect the pathologies of their own societies and savor being able to assign the term of illegal “occupier” to Israel, and leftists at the same time fulfill their Marxist dreams of trying to envision and help create what Harvard’s Ruth Wisse has called the “ideal of the egalitarian state” by purporting to help suffering Gazans with aid that instead is expropriated by Hamas for weaponry with which to murder even more Jews.

Aside from my own 485-page tome on the subject, Red Army, I think Jamie Glazov did an excellent job at framing things in United in Hate: The Left’s Romance with Tyranny and Terror.

The New Israel Fund, as usual, condemns the State of Israel rather than condemning a horrible act.

While Orthodox men are encouraged to achieve and celebrated for it, Orthodox women too often are not
Jonathan remember, as long as you’re denied your right to come home to Israel you’re still in prison
Reports of a dead baby, a devastated family, and indications of a gloating attacker.
“The fear of being exposed publicly is the only thing that will stop people,” observed Seewald.
“Yesha” and Binyamin Regional Council leaders said the attack “is not the path of Jews in Judea and Samaria.”

The multiculturalism that animates the hate-Israel crowd is sprinkled with code words of oppression
Jews do not fare well on campuses these days, particularly in the context of the debate over Israel.
The cynical, and historically and factually inaccurate, view has meant leftists frequently denounce Western democracies as imperialistic, racist, militaristic oppressors.
What was unique about the MLA’s and the ASA’s approach was the breathtakingly Orwellian notion that not only was Israel itself guilty of the many alleged transgressions assigned to it by its libelers, but a boycott against Israeli academics was warranted because the academic establishment itself is complicit in Zionism’s excesses and a core element of the bemoaned occupation, oppression, and denial of Palestinian self-determination.
