European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security
Policy was criticised yesterday for comparing the killing of three
children and a rabbi in a shooting attack in France to the situation in
At the “Palestine refugees in the changing Middle East” conference
in Brussels, Baroness Ashton, described the murders in Toulouse as a
“terrible tragedy”, but she then added: “When we see what is happening
in Gaza and in different parts of the world – we remember young people
and children who lose their lives.”
Seemingly some prominent Jewish and Israeli leaders couldn’t agree
less. For them Jewish suffering exceeds all other suffering and
Palestinian’s in particular.
The London Jewish Chronicle
quoted some of the outraged critics. “Even when read in context,
Ashton’s words are beyond unacceptable,” said Oliver Worth, the British
chairman of the World Union of Jewish Students. He said they were “truly
outrageous and revolting” and called for her to resign because she had
“lost all credibility”. And yet, Mr Worth fails to explain why is it
“outrageous and revolting” to equate Jewish suffering with Palestinian
“Baroness Ashton’s remarks were both crass and wholly
inappropriate,” said the chief executives of the Board of Deputies, yet
he also fails to provide any reasoning.
“There is absolutely no equivalence between the situation in Gaza
and the cold and callous murder of Rabbi Jonathan Sandler and the three
children,” said Stefan Kerner, director of public affairs for the
Zionist Federation. And I wonder why there is no ‘equivalence’, is it
because the Jews are yet to withdraw from Toulouse? Or may be Mr Kerner
actually expects the French to withdraw from Toulouse and to leave it
to Rabbi Sandler and a few other Jews. I obviously find it really
difficult to follow the Zionist logic anymore.
The Rabbi added: “For a person in Baroness Ashton’s position to even
consider her comments appropriate is disgraceful. She should withdraw
her statement immediately and apologise unreservedly for the offence
that she has caused.” And I wonder why is it offensive to Jews when
someone equates their grief with Goyim’s suffering. Does the Rabbi
really believe that Jewish suffering is somehow superior?
Avigdor Lieberman, Israel’s Foreign Minister, said he viewed her
remarks as “inappropriate”. He said he hoped that she “re – examines and
retracts them”. And I wonder, what kind of a retraction would please
the Israeli Government. Do they really expect Baroness Ashton to
accept that Jewish suffering is the ultimate form of human grief?
Israeli war criminal as well as Opposition leader Tzipi Livni also,
attempted to offer some reasoning. She described Ashton’s remark as
“reprehensible, infuriating, and wrong” to draw any link “between the
murder of children in Toulouse and the massacre Assad is leading in
Syria and the situation in Gaza”. Livni may be right for a change, the
crime committed in Gaza by the Jewish State in the name of the Jewish
People is indeed unique in the history of brutality. Also the fact that
94% of the Israeli Jewish population supported IDF genocidal tactics at
the time of operation Cast Lead is also very unique. Israel’s war crimes
are indeed uniquely cruel and beyond comparison.
But Livni didn’t just stop there, she tried to qualify her
statement. “A hate crime or a leader murdering his people is not like a
country fighting terror, even if civilians are hurt.” According to
Lvini, the Baroness had failed to make “the appropriate moral
distinction”. To start with we do not know yet what led to the tragic
event in Toulouse. However, the fact that Israel defines the
Palestinians as “terrorists” is yet to provide the Jewish State with an
moral excuse to slay the indigenous people of the land and to abuse
every possible human right.
I guess that we are all becoming impervious to Jewish political
logic. But maybe this is another symptom of the Zionification of our
reality. From now on we are expected to obey.
