Reaping what they sow

So a Jewish extremist has killed four Palestinians in an event likely to inflame tension in the region. Let it be understood that there are now thousands of Jewish fundamentalists determined to disrupt the upcoming “disengagement” by whatever means. Another massacre – on the scale of the 1994 event perpetrated by Baruch Goldstein in Hebron killing 29 Palestinians – is brewing and almost inevitable.

The Israeli government and its various world supporters have consistently refused to subdue or control Jews who openly advocate Palestinian ethnic cleansing, murder and mayhem. Why? Jews shouldn’t have to manage Jews, so the thinking went. The results are plain to see.

In related news:

“A federal grand jury on Thursday indicted two former officials of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) on charges they received classified national defense information from a Pentagon analyst, court documents show.”

The “special relationship” between America and Israel is unlikely to change significantly in the coming years, but cracks are starting to appear. When an increasing number of Americans wonder aloud whether the tens of billions already given to Israel are worth the hassle, I suspect I know the answer.

Israel is on notice.
