There are two groups that plot terrorist attacks against Jewish synagogues and centers in America and Europe: Nazis and Muslims.
The media unequivocally condemns Nazis, but equivocates when the attackers are Muslims.
When a Nazi attacks a synagogue, the media blames Republicans. But when a Muslim attacks a synagogue, the media will claim that he was a mentally ill man entrapped by the FBI. Buford O. Furrow and Robert Bowers are monsters, but Abdul Rahman and Ahmed Ferhani are victims.
President Trump has never expressed an ounce of sympathy for Bowers. Instead he firmly demanded justice. “Anybody who does this deserves the death penalty. When people do this they should get the death penalty and they shouldn’t have to wait years and years. Now the lawyers are going to get involved and we’ll be ten years down the line. Anybody that does this to innocent people who are in temple or in church, should pay the ultimate price.”
It’s the media which has repeatedly expressed sympathy for synagogue terrorists.
The same media busy blaming the Squirrel Hill synagogue attack on Trump would have been defending the terrorist if his name had been Rahman instead of Robert.
And the media has two things in common with the Squirrel Hill synagogue shooter.
Robert Bowers hated Trump. And he hated the Jews in the Trump administration. “Trump is surrounded by kikes,” he complained.
The media responded to Bowers’ attack by going after Jews.
The Atlantic decided to publish an execrable blood libel by Franklin Foer which called for “shunning Trump’s Jewish enablers. Their money should be refused, their presence in synagogues not welcome.” Julia Ioffe, who had previously been fired for a Trump incest tweet, but was hired anyway by GQ, accused Trump of being responsible for the synagogue shooting. But not before blaming pro-Israel Jews.
The media isn’t just exploiting the murder of Jews to attack Trump. It’s even sickeningly exploiting the murder of Jews to attack Jews.
That isn’t opposing anti-Semitism. It’s engaging in it.
When you oppose anti-Semitism, then you oppose the murder of Jews. By Nazis and by Muslims.
By anyone. Period.
