European leaders silent on jihadi Jew hate

The West’s leadership has assumed “everyone in the world is governed by reason” and can be negotiated with, and fails to see that jihadis “believe they are God’s warriors” who think “the great threat to Islam was ­modernity”, with Jews “as the creators of modernity”.

For Europeans, still grappling with Holocaust guilt, “it’s very convenient that Palestinians point to Jews as Nazis,” she said. “The left-wing intelligentsia in Britain and Europe has bought wholesale into the Palestinian rewriting of history,” and media outlets such as BBC and Sky News UK followed a “Hamas script” during last year’s Gaza War, which in turn has incited “Muslim hysteria”.
