The leftist factory of big lies has been been working overtime lately:
We live in a world in which the mass media and academia — all nothing more than mouthpieces of the left — repeatedly tell the world that America fought the Revolutionary War in order to preserve slavery, that men menstruate and that Hamas is a victim of Israeli aggression.
How such gargantuan lies have become mainstream truths is a question for another column. Suffice it to say they are all as absurd as they are mendacious. …
The Israel lie is particularly offensive:
The reason there is a war right now between Israel and Hamas is that Israel exists. It has nothing to do with anything Israel has actually done. Hamas and its backers in Iran do not have disputes with Israel. They have a dispute with Israel’s existence.
There is, therefore, nothing Israel can do that would satisfy its enemies except agree to destroy itself as the one Jewish state in the world. …
Hamas and its supporters in Iran regularly announce they seek Israel’s destruction. There is no parallel to this in the world. No groups or nations seek the obliteration of any other nation in the world. This is in keeping with the history of anti-Semitism. Anti-Semitism is not just another ethnic or racial bigotry. I wish it were.
Anti-Semitism, unlike every other form of racism or ethnic bigotry, is exterminationist. Jew-haters don’t merely hate Jews; they want Jews dead. That is one of the many reasons that every honest person understands that anti-Zionism is merely the latest expression of anti-Semitism. The anti-Zionist claim is that Israel’s existence as a Jewish state is illegitimate. …
Why do those on the left (again, as I always point out, leftists; not liberals) deny this?
Because the left hates the good and often supports the enemies of the good. Leftism is a moral sickness in the human condition. As I have previously written, it is not even an issue of the left having a broken moral compass. A broken moral compass is occasionally accurate. The left’s moral compass always shows north as south and east as west.
That is why the left hates America. Precisely because it has been, in Abraham Lincoln’s incomparable words, “the last best hope of earth.” And that is why the left hates Israel. With all its flaws, Israel, too, has been a moral beacon.
