This could have happened in Los Angeles all those years ago.

I just want to scream.

I read about this last night—they way he chased the little girl down, grabbed her by the hair and shot her, then shot her again—it bothered me all night.

I’m sure if this MF has a pet dog, he wouldn’t dream of treating it like that, yet an innocent little girl, just because she’s Jewish…how in the hell does someone get to a place like that in their head?

I’m sure if this MF has a pet dog, he wouldn’t dream of treating it like that, yet an innocent little girl, just because she’s Jewish…how in the hell does someone get to a place like that in their head?

It usually starts with the education, socialization and indoctrination this MF has received since childhood. If you demonize the “other” long enough, a child can grow to believe that the “other” is less than human, and less deserving of life than even a pet dog.

That is why so many of us have been screaming for the two decades since Oslo (the accords, not last year’s massacre of innocents) about the West’s turning a blind eye to the overtly anti-Jewish indoctrination of Palestinian youth by the organs of the Palestinian Authority. Until the young are taught the value of peaceful co-existence as a valued end in and of itself rather than as a stepping stone to eradication of the Jewish presence, there sadly is and will remain no hope for peace.

I just want to scream.

Amen to that. And when we are done screaming, our anger shall turn to steely resolve to live the words “Never again.”

Here’s hoping that justice swiftly finds the person who did this and anyone else who faciliitated it.

re: #3 sliv_the_eli

Yes, but much of the stuff in Europe seems to be a different strain of hate. While it includes the European version of antisemitism, it also appears to be mixed with a more general anti-immigrant or anti-“other” strain. It’s like a synthesis of evil.

An article from yesterday, added emphasis mine:

Greek Bailout Fuels Rise Of Extreme Politics

[…]

And it’s not just the left that’s gaining popularity; so are two new far-right movements.

One is the ultranationalist and neo-fascist Golden Dawn, which preaches the superiority of the white race. It is polling above the 3 percent necessary to enter Parliament.

In a bookshop filled with tracts on Nazism and Hitler T-shirts, a large crowd listens to a Golden Dawn member who identifies herself only as Georgia.

“We reject the idea that all races and nations are created equal,” she says. “We have become economic slaves of the Zionist economy and usurers.”

At the other end of the political spectrum, one of the parties doing well in the polls is the far-left SYRIZA that wants to renegotiate the terms of the bailout. Member of Parliament Dimitris Papadimoulos says austerity has sharply widened the gap between rich and poor.

Papadimoulos calls for a wide governing coalition because Greece, he says, faces the same dilemma the West faced after the crash of 1929 — a progressive or an authoritarian outcome.

Throw in child abuse and you’ve got the picture.

re: #5 CuriousLurker

You asked how do people get to this place in their head (heart). Well, there is only one place like that, and folks can decorate it with either flowers or a sharpened picket fence. It’s still the same place.
