The Jewish Journal:
On the day that the world commemorated the 70th anniversary of the
liberation of the Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp, the U.K. liberal
newspaper The Guardian declared in an editorial:
“The Arabs, meanwhile, cannot be blamed for feeling that Europe’s
blood debt to the Jews was paid with what they see as their territory.”
The myth of the Arabs as innocent bystanders, who had no
responsibility for the Holocaust – and indeed, paid the price for a
European crime when Israel was established – is widely believed.
The Arabs, like other third-world peoples, are only ever seen as
victims of Western oppression and colonialism. They cannot themselves be
guilty of oppressing others.
The West self-righteously deplores the old European anti-Semitism of the “far right.” But a new Green-Brown-Red anti-Semitism – encouraged by an alliance of the Far Left, the Greens and Islamist sympathizers – is studiously downplayed, ignored by the media, or blamed on Israel.
