We Jews, especially Israelis, have skin thicker than elephant hides when it comes to insults, personal, political etc. We rarely react, and when we do, it's with a totally ineffective wimpiness. Take as an example, the fact that here we are in the sixty-fifth (65th) year of the existence of the State of Israel, and there may not be a single country in the world that recognizes our Capital City as Jerusalem. All of these other countries locate their embassies to Israel in other cities. Some even have the added chutzpah to state that Jerusalem is the capital of the non-existent Palestine sic.
Can you imagine if the world did that to any other country, or if Israel would retaliate by locating its embassies in cities of its choice in every single country that insults us?
The other countries would definitely protest strongly, and the State of Israel could save a lot of money by choosing less expensive real estate for its embassies and staff residences.
Israel should also call home Ambassadors from countries that support the foreign anarchists who come to support the Arab terrorists plaguing us. We should be demanding apologies from Turkey for the flotilla and other anti-Israel aggressions. Be the first to condemn and you're ahead of the game. Never apologize for what we haven't done.
The recent international Muslim riots are just exercises in violence, something that they do periodically at any excuse, like Ruthie Blum writes.
There are also some good points in Lady-light's blogpost.The ostensible cause of this continuing carnage — including yesterday’s suicide bombing in Afghanistan that killed at least a dozen employees of an American aviation firm working for the U.S. government — was a YouTube clip portraying the Prophet Muhammad as a sexual deviant.
All evidence suggests that the Libyan attacks that spurred on the rest of the region were carefully planned in advance, without regard to the third-rate film that had been around for a long time before anyone picked up on it.
This, however, has not prevented the Obama administration and the Clinton State Department from perpetuating the myth that the mass anti-American frenzy is due to “provocation” on the part of the Los Angeles-based pornographic filmmaker. Nor has it lessened Washington’s apologetic stance in relation to the poor Muslims who were offended by the short movie — nor altered the way the media have been reporting on the daily abominations.
Simply put, Islam is showing itself to be a lousy religion, a lousy culture with lousy values. And our president is deferring to it. I know who I'm not voting for this coming November.
Even Aish.com has an article about the dangers of Muslim violence.
It's insane the degree of power that the Internet has put into the hands of the irresponsible. Yet this is the reality of how our world works, 2012.Aish usually sticks to Jewish religious topics.
Initial news reports incorrectly tagged an "Israeli Jew" – funded by Jewish donors – as the maker of this film.
It is incredible how the world accepted this untruth so quickly.
There's an enormous difference between Muslim riots and Jewish protests. I suggest that those of you who can please attend AFSI's upcoming demonstration.
