Anti-Semitism in “peace plans”

Greetings.

Jewish date:  10 Kislew 5770 (Parashath Wayyeṣe’).

Today’s holidays:  Friday of the Thirty-Fourth Week of Ordinary Time (Roman Catholicism), Feast of Harry Smith (Thelema), Eidul-Adha (Islam).

Worthy cause of the day:  “End Water Pollution from Mountaintop Removal Mining - The Petition Site”.

Today’s topic:  “No Jews Allowed”.  This The Dry Bones cartoon deals with a fundamental asymmetry in many “peace plans” meant to handle the Israeli-Arab War:  Jews are supposed to completely evacuate “Arab” areas, while Arabs are supposed to be able to live everywhere in Israel.  This is anti-Semitic, no matter how anyone tries to sugar-coat it.  And, no, this is not specific to Barack Obama.  This is commonly proposed, especially by Arabs and Muslims.

Peace and Shabbath shalom.
