I've been saying the same thing for the last few days

... most recently here.

Vengeful Zhid via The Corner:

I'm just wondering when someone is going to treat Jews like Muslims. Right now there are protests around the world against Israel's defensive military action in occupied Gaza and without exception you will find the protesters attacking (verbally, though sometimes physically as well) Jews as part of the protests.

After the 9/11 terror attacks we were told that we must not condemn Islam and Muslims when we express our anger at the acts of terror. The government bent over backwards to call Islam a "religion of peace" and the media went so far as to embark on a multi-year, gratis public relations campaign to put a positive face on Islam and Muslims (see, e.g., the New York Times).

So I'm just waiting for all of these entities to condemn anyone who would say negative things about Jews in connection with protests against Israel.

Oh, so that's why Liz takes such pains to differentiate between Judaism and Zionism; It's okay to hate Jews for living in Israel, so long as you're not hating them for being Jewish. That would be bigoted, and we all know left-wing kooks can't be bigots.

Indeed, Rex. After all, who knew that Jews had been living in Israel/Palestine since time immemorial??
