Who needs facts? We have Israel as a scapegoat

Op-ed: It was only a matter of time before someone would blame Jewish state for terror attacks in Paris as Jimmy Carter blamed Israel for Charlie Hebdo.

It was clear that we wouldn't have to wait long before someone blames Israel for the terror attacks in Paris.

It's not the murderers. They are simply desperate. The global jihadists are extremely worried about the oppressions of the Palestinians' human rights. They are not just worried, they are going mad. They are willing to blow up the entire world in order to express their despair, especially as they have 72 virgins waiting for them to relieve their desperation.

The world of knowledge often demonstrates similar nonsense. It was Jimmy Carter, not a foreign ministry of a country which has lost its mind, but the former president of the world's strongest power, or at least used to be the world's strongest power, who raised a similar argument earlier this year.

What do you think about the murder at the Charlie Hebdo offices, he was asked by Jon Stewart, who is not known as an Israel lover. "One of the origins for it," Carter replied, "is the Palestinian problem. And this aggravates people who are affiliated in any way with the Arab people who live in the West Bank and Gaza, what they are doing now — what’s being done to them."

How did we not think of that? The Charlie Hebdo journalists were murdered because of Israel.

The thing is that Jimmy Carter and Swedish Foreign Minister Margot Wallström should be informed that the global jihadists mainly murder Muslims. They do it on a daily basis. The dozens of Muslims who were massacred inside a mosque in northern Nigeria last week, and during a funeral in Pakistan two days earlier, and during a wedding in Baghdad two days later, etc, etc, are basically the victims of the Islamic rage over the Palestinians' misery.

It's true that 99 percent of those living under the influence of radical Islam would pay any price to upgrade themselves to the Palestinians' level of misery, but that's not important. And the facts are not important either, as long as Carter, Wallström and others who share their opinions, and there are quite a few of them, know that they have a scapegoat.

Israel is to blame, it's all because of Israel. Israel is also responsible for global warming. No, that's not a joke. It's what Clare Short, a former minister in the British government, claimed. That's what happens to those who suffer from Judophobia or Zionphobia or Israelphobia. It's the same thing.

What can be done against the insanity which has come upon some of the free world's elites? How should we deal with claims that are so ridiculous that it would be embarrassing to refute them?

Well, we must not laugh.

The same disease struck a part of the free world in the 1930s. Some of the elites were inflicted with this disease as well. Then it was the Jews. They were accused for all the trouble. Today it's Israel.

Wallström and Carter must be taken seriously. They must be denounced on every stage, so that the outcome won't be similar.
