The Re’im Music Festival Massacre

I’ve just seen two documentaries about the Hamas attack on civilians in Israel on 7 October 2023. This was the onslaught that sparked the war. Still, for some not-very-unknown reason, people on the hard left in Europe and America are filling the streets protesting against Israel. When Jews die, it’s sparks not feelings among pro-Palestinians. Instead, it’s all “from the river to the sea” and “resistance is not terrorism”.

When the far-right madman Anders Behring Breivik shot and killed young people at Utøya in 2011, no one marched in the streets with signs justifying racism. Everyone would detest people of did that. But now, when Jews are the victims, racist terrorism is suddenly justifiable. Further still, it’s suddenly fine to call for a second Holocaust. For some reason, all people are of higher value than Jews.
