Until now, when Islamic terrorists fired rockets into Israeli homes, kidnapped Israeli soldiers and citizens, and sent out suicide bombers by the droves, most Europeans and Arabs were content. The status quo consisted of Jews dying without doing much to defend themselves, and that’s apparently what makes Europeans and Arabs happy. Now, however, things have changed. Israel is striking back at the terrorists, and unfortunately, in addition to Jews dying, there are Arabs dying too. And that’s the new status quo that is terribly upsetting to the Europeans and Arabs.
During all the years of Hamas firing rockets into Israeli houses, temples, kindergartens and community centers, there were no emergency UN Security Council meetings called. There were no street demonstrations demanding of the Islamist terrorists to stop their killing of innocents. But now, when Israel is forced to fight back against Hizbullah which fires rockets into Israel from inside residential buildings in places like Qana, there is a great uproar.
All of a sudden, it matters when civilians die – just so long as those civilians are not Jewish. Street demonstrations erupt and Israel is condemned. Notice, though, how the so-called “peace” activists are always missing in action when it comes to protesting the slaughter of innocent Jews, because evidently, Jews being mass-murdered by Muslim terrorists is the exact essence of the “peace” that is being sought by the Europeans and Arabs. Well, there’s been a change in the status quo: Jews are no longer sitting idly by as they die, even if this is distasteful to the hypocritical Europeans and Arabs.
