Western Activists Fail to Hold Palestinians Responsible for Their Actions

(CAMERA-UK) Adam Levick - Western activists for Palestinians "are dedicated to two nearly theological precepts: that Israel is evil, and that no Palestinian action is ever connected to any Palestinian outcome," Shany Mor, a lecturer at Reichman University in Herzliya, Israel, noted in the Wall Street Journal. Thus, the suffering of Gazans in the war that followed the medieval savagery meted out to Jews on Oct. 7 could never be connected to the decisions of Hamas leaders and their executioners, who committed unspeakable crimes in the service of a fanatical ideology. Truly decent pro-Palestinian media outlets would assign agency to Palestinians and, especially, their leaders. They'd cease contextualizing Hamas' pogrom as an "understandable" reaction to Israel's blockade and (non-existent) occupation. They'd use their platform to consistently denounce the genocidal antisemitic agenda of the group which carried out the Oct. 7 massacre. They'd refuse to platform columnists who celebrated the Oct. 7 attacks, and would devote considerable space to documenting and condemning the vicious sexual brutality against Israeli women and girls by Hamas. In the aftermath of the worst antisemitic atrocity since the Holocaust, the anti-Zionists have responded by turning it into a "non-event," not only avoiding any serious self-reflection, but doubling down on their first principles concerning Israel's "intrinsic villainy."
