Personal rantings stemming from a dinner conversation…..
“My daughter is having renovations done on her home and they had to hire a Jewish guy with a gun to supervise the Arab workers.”
“had to hire a Jewish guy with a gun to supervise the Arab workers????”
That’s how my dinner conversation started last night. I responded by saying that it was not the most suitable working conditions available and I personally could never function with a gun pointing at me…
“But Steve, you forgot that the last ‘terrorist’ incident involved an Arab from right here in East Jerusalem…. you can’t trust ANY of THEM any longer” I responded by saying that “Simon was coming over tomorrow so I better buy a gun”…… “WHAT IS THAT SUPPOSED TO MEAN?”
“Simon is from Brooklyn, so was baruch goldstein, YOU CAN’T TRUST ANYONE FROM BROOKLYN ANY LONGER.”
But, that was different…. one was a terrorist that slaughtered 29 innocent people…. the other was a mentally ill drug abuser that went beserk on the streets of Jerusalem. Yes, Jewish terrorism is different, even at times supported by the state.
Even in death they are treated differently; an Arab terrorist has his home destroyed, his family tormented by the State, his remains buried secretly as not to bring attention to anyone. A Jewish terrorist is a martyr, his grave becomes a shrine….
Talk about ‘second class citizenship’….
