Glorifying the Slaughter of Jews

Giulio Meotti has a piece published at Arutz Sheva entitled, I Am Going to Vandalize the Vile Museum in Paris.  One of my ongoing contentions is that the progressive-left, as a movement, no longer represents its own alleged values, if it ever did.  Because the left has sacrificed ideals of universal human rights on the altar of a misguided and counterproductive multiculturalism, they cannot bring themselves to stand up for the violently oppressed women in the Middle East nor Gay people who are hung from cranes there nor, of course, the tiny Jewish minority which remains under siege by a vast Muslim majority riven by genocidal anti-Semitism.

Meotti writes:
When you don’t protest it allows things to get worse and worse.

What would Jews or other people with a conscience do if a famous museum in London, Paris, Berlin, Madrid or Rome glorified the Holocaust through the exhibition of Jewish ashes, bones, glasses and hairs? I imagine, or at least I hope, that some brave Jew would smash these “artistic artifacts”. Because any person, regardless of his faith and political ideas, would have to find that kind of exhibition disgraceful and intolerable.

That is why I am planning to visit Paris within the next few weeks. I will stop at the Jeu de Paume museum, Place de la Concorde. Not to contemplate the wonderful paintings of Degas, Monet, C├ęzanne, Van Gogh or Renoir. No, I will be there to vandalize the Palestinian Arab photos exhibited there, which calli to murder Jewish children, teenagers, mothers with infants and elderly couples in the land of Israel.

The Jeu de Paume’s vile exhibition of 68 photos entitled “Death”, by Ahlam Shibli, glorifies Palestinian terrorists who burned Jewish flesh. I am wondering why no Jewish intellectual or activist has smashed this “artistic exhibition” which commemorates Palestinian Arab hyenas, the terrorists of the “road without glory”, as the Jewish Resistance member Bernard Fall called it. Ambassador Zvi Mazel did it in 2004 with a similar, satanic show in Stockholm.
Every generation the Jewish people are told just why it is that we need to be killed.

In the Middle Ages in Europe it was because we allegedly murdered Jesus.  In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries it was, at various times and various places, either because we come from a loathsome "race" or because we were agents of international capitalism and, thus, an enemy to the proletariat or because we were agents of international communism and, thus, an enemy to liberal democracy.

In the Arab world, today, we are still considered the "children of apes and pigs" as well as white, western imperial usurpers.  This last bit of hate-filled propaganda came out of the Soviet Union and was spread by western progressives into the Arab Middle East where it was picked up by people such as Yassir Arafat.  Today in the west, through all sorts of political-left blogs and newspapers and think tanks and universities and museums, such as the Jeu de Paume museum, Place de la Concorde, the "invisible tag-line," as Meotti writes, is that “Jews are vermin, Arabs are liberators”.

This is what the western left has come to and what truly slays me is that they still think that they deserve our support.

I tell ya what, when the progressive-left decides that it is going to stand up for universal human rights and decides to stop glorifying the murder of Jewish people then I will consider returning to the movement and throwing my support behind it.

In the mean time, not so much.
