Israel News : Jerusalem Post Internet Edition

I shamed myself a little, because I had started to do what I accuse a lot of other people of doing — I am beginning to take the slaughter of Jews as something that “just happens”. This line shocked me back to reality:

“It was a barbecue, people burned like torches,” he said. It was worse, he said, than anything he had seen at Yad Vashem.

This is worse than anything at Yad Vashem. The last time the Jews were being slaughtered, the world had plausible deniability. Today, anyone who can look at this and still insist on tying Israel’s hands is complicit in the murder.
