Genocide in Israel

(National Review) Kathryn Jean Lopez - Giulio Meotti described the slaughter last week of five members of the Fogel family on the West Bank: "The victims were sleeping as the killer came in. The paramedics described children's toys right next to pools of blood." Meotti, an Italian journalist, is the author of the haunting book A New Shoah: The Untold Story of Israel's Victims of Terrorism, dedicated to making sure that these victims are known and not forgotten. As Meotti tells me, "Those who profess to deplore violence on both sides of the Israeli-Palestinian equation have remained relatively silent on the slaughtering of this Israeli family. No words of condemnation about the killing of these innocents have been heard from the human-rights groups, the same faction that is so quick to vilify Israel for defending itself from terrorist attacks, especially when Palestinian citizens lose their lives during a retaliatory foray by Israel. There is no other conclusion to draw: When the deaths of Jewish innocents go unmourned and unacknowledged, it is because Jewish lives do not count. Where's the outrage? Why is the world silent about the beheading of a Jewish infant? The silence has been telling." "The 'civilized' world should be ashamed for leaving the Israelis alone, during the Second Intifada, to be killed in cafes, buses, supermarkets. How will it answer when the Iranian ayatollahs threaten to burn half of the Jewish state with the atomic bomb?"
