Re: “Letters

In response to "another [so called] Holocaust" by the Durands. I note they refer to the Palestinians as "Semites," thereby resorting to the classic refuge of modern-day anti-Semites: "I am not an anti-Semite - as you can see I am friendly to the cause of Palestinians who are Semites too.." Which the Palestinians are, which does not change the singular meaning of the term "anti-Semite" which is "anti-Jewish," as it has meant for centuries. Whereas the attempt to distort and negate the very meaning of the term anti-Semitic is a classic rhetorical twist of israel-bashers, their odious comparison of Israel's defensive acts in Gaza to the Holocaust marks the Durands as anti-Semites themselves. Modern antisemitism, which is politically incorrect, has taken the form of anti-Israelism, which has become as virulent as antisemitism. To compare the Palestinian experience in Gaza to the Holocaust reveals an indifference to truth and integrity and a malice that is beneath contempt. They may be engaged in bringing in medications to Gaza (which Israel lets in) and food (which Israel lets in, in addition to electricity and water) - and that is fine. It does not justify their malice.
