"To bait fish withal It will feed nothing else,
it will feed my revenge. He hath disgraced me, and hindered
me half a million, laughed at my losses, mocked at my gains,
scorned my nation, thwarted my bargains, cooled my friends,
heated mine enemies. And what's his reason? I am a
Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands,
organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed
with the same food, hurt with the same weapons,
subject to the same diseases, healed by the same
means, warmed and cooled by the same winter
and summer as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we
not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you
poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall
we not revenge? If we are like you in the rest, we
will resemble you in that. If a Jew wrong
a Christian, what is his humility? Revenge. If
a Christian wrong a Jew, what should his sufferance
be by Christian example? Why, revenge. The villainy you
teach me I will execute, and it shall go hard
but I will better the instruction."
The Merchant of Venice, William Shakespeare
Act 3, Scene 1, lines 55-76
Why is the media and why are Israel's politicians so upset that the people of Yitzhar have reacted to the murderous aggression, terrorism, of the nearby Arabs?
Why is the media and why are Israel's politicians so sympathetic to the sic "plight" of the Arabs?
Why are we Jews supposed to constantly absorb the blows, the terrorism?
Why are we Jews expected to move away silently and passively and money-grubbingly to DP camps?
Why is "transfer" kosher when Jews are thrown out of their homes, but traif when Arabs are told to be peaceful or leave?
