Not only monetary costs, but your time, convenience and the predictable results.
We’re referring to mostly good-hearted people who openly support “Palestinian rights”, “Arab rights”, Muslim rights” and the rights of immigrants (be they legal, illegal, political, financial, religious, etc. etc.). Human rights and the inalienable right to life and fulfillment are wonderful sentiments. In a perfect world, even in a near-perfect world, that must be our aim.
Unfortunately, our world is far, far from perfect. Part of the problem is that ordinary folks (like you, and you, and you) are often misled by false advertising, fake news, misleading or PhotoShopped pictures, re-written history and other diversions. The major failure leading up to 2017 has been people’s inability to understand and differentiate between anti-Israel and anti-Semitism.
Anti-Semitism is alive and well and has been around for 2000 years, ever since the papacy declared – erroneously as history has proved – that “the Jews” killed Christ. Unfortunately, the United Nations, under whose direct support Israel was established in 1948, has done much harm in this regard too.
The new-age anti-Israel is a false flag to throw you off balance; it is nothing more than the tired old vile anti-Semitism, cloaked as the need to support “Palestinian” rights. (Note: never, in all of history, has there ever been a Palestinian nation, state, country, race, language, religion, culture or whatever. The “Palestinian” people and ethnicity were created after Israel’s establishment, as a red herring to divert people’s attention from attempts to destroy Israel.)
You can choose anti-Semitism and thus support Islamic terror – it’s your right (or wrong?) to do so. But know the cost. This week for example, the municipality of Paris announced an investment of 20,000,000 euro (yes, 20 million euro) to build a security wall around the Eiffel Tower. This, thanks to the wave of terror that shattered France over the past months. What an eyesore! What a waste! Imagine if that money could go to improving Parisian infrastructure, or adding more gardens, or making the airport more accessible.
Ah, airports. Remember when you could arrive at the airport 10 minutes before flight time, go directly to the gate and check in there and board the plane? Thanks to world-wide Islamic terror, most world airports now want you there at least three hours before your flight. Be ready to stand on line, to be questioned, to have your luggage examined, to take your shoes, belt, jacket and jewelry off, to stand in more lines and have your camera, lap-top and iphone examined, etc. etc.
Those are just some of the legacies of Islamic terror. Yes, you can choose, but be aware of the costs.
