This is an opinion piece by Thomas Fretwell, M.A.
It has long been the mantra of much of the Western media, along with their fellow leftist ideologues, that Israel is the main obstacle to peace in the Middle East. The verbal (not to mention physical) assault against Israel seemingly never ends.
These vitriolic attacks constantly accuse Israel of such atrocities as apartheid, ethnic cleansing and genocide, and as if that isn’t enough, when innocent Israeli civilians are stabbed in the supermarket or massacred by a Palestinian terrorist who enters their home during a Shabbat meal , the banal response from the Western world is one of indifference and blame. Somehow, when Jews are killed these acts of terror are not worthy of international rebuke or even a show of solidarity from world leaders.
