‘False Equivalency in Israeli/Palestinian Murders Threatens a Bloodbath of Jews’

Phyllis Chesler writes:

ISIS has just crucified eight Muslim men for not being “extreme” enough in their Islamic practice. They kept their bodies on display in a town square in Iraq for three days. The ninth crucified man survived.

Horrifying—yes? Equally horrifying are the mass beheadings and the football games ISIS has been playing with the human heads. However, the leading western media are focusing mainly on the Palestinian Arab boy who was burned alive. Why such a focus?

Mainly because it is alleged–but in no way proven—that the Arab teenager was murdered by “Jews,”  “settler” Jews, who were both bold and foolish enough to enter a dark, lower middle class all-Arab neighborhood, Shua’fat, in the middle of the night to kidnap an Arab boy. No one stopped them. So far, the media, both left and right, seem to be following the Arab narrative.

Here is what I am sure about.

Arabs and Muslims honor murder their own daughters on the basis of mere rumor.  (…)

[Whereas] Even in Biblical times, Dina’s brothers did not kill their kidnapped and raped sister, Dina in an honor/”horror” killing. They killed her rapist and all those who allowed him to do it and get away with it.
