    If the Jewish people vanished from the earth, would the intellectuals cease their calls for ethnic cleansing campaigns? Would Islam suddenly experience the Peace of Dar-es-Salaam? Would hate groups worldwide stop their propaganda machines and give up inciting attacks?

    Of course not. The problem is not with the Jewish people; the problem exists within the minds of those who attack them – and in the absence of Jews they will find new targets for their wrath. Hate is their raison d’etre.

      Islam is at war with everything, including itself.

      Its about time the west wakes up to this fact and exterminates Islam from the face of the planet.

    • Islam already hates everyone, Jews are just at the top of the list currently.

      • Xavier

        Yes it does. The intellectuals and Islamists and anti-Semites all have a commonality: there is a type of person who has to despise others to feel good about themselves, and these groups all share that. Much like liberals, who hate themselves along with everyone else.

    The problem is academia.

    • Xavier

      Well, let’s give credit where it’s due – the media are vicious and influential anti-Semites too.

        I don’t dispute that. But it is also very possible students are picking up cues from their instructors.

        Yes and how many of those working in the media were indoctrinated by the same institutions?

    The big difference between now and the 1930s is that Israel is not powerless and it is slowly starting to dawn on Palestinian Arabs, particularly certain intellectuals, that it may not be in their best interests to be cannon fodder of outside haters.
