Calling all Jewish organizations! Where are you? Please report in immediately!
That’s my cry to the well-funded Jewish groups, kept in business by Jewish dollars, claiming to stand for Israel and repudiate Jew bashers. So far, none have come out to criticize New York Times columnist Nicholas Kristof for retweeting a message that referred to the National Rifle Association and American Israel Public Affairs Committee as “pig-like lobbies.”
Apparently, there is nothing wrong with Kristof, a member in great standing of the print media, to call the NRA such a disparaging term. His mindless, liberal followers welcome and all too willingly absorb that kind of libelous, trite verbiage. After all, they do shell out cash for The Times of their own free will. But as of this writing, no Jewish “defense” group, not even the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the victim, has had the guts to respond angrily and forthrightly to this hateful venom. They are, apparently, willing to accept the “pig” description, the typical mantra used by the Palestinians against all Jews.
But wait. Could this be the creeping Muslim description of Jews that the mainstream media is experimenting with, testing the waters of Jewish response? Will the demeaning rhetoric of these radicals be trumpeted in columns written by hundreds of Kristofs around the world? Will I and my family be referred to by Yasser Arafat’s description of Jews, now commonplace among Muslims, as “descendants of apes and pigs”? Are we seen as less than human to these individuals? So where is the vaunted Jewish lobby? Go ask them yourselves before writing out that tax-exempt donation.
