An interesting article in an Australian Newspaper about some people waking up to realities in the world:
Upon meeting a Jewish person, says Dean, you should “reach out, shake their hand and say, I’m sorry for a long list of shortcomings: Failing to mourn the Israeli athletes killed at the 1972 Olympic Games, dismissing Palestinian terrorist attacks, blaming the lack of Middle East peace solely on Israel, ignoring the BDS movement, and refusing to see the connection between radical Islamic terrorism against Israel and its attacks on the rest of the world.”
Today, however, things are beginning to change:
The other day, Norway’s Minister for Migration and Integration, Sylvi Listhaug – one of that country’s most popular politicians – linked terror in Europe to what Israel endures.
Speaking to an Israeli media outlet, she said: “We are experiencing now the fear that you have experienced for decades. Many people now understand the situation you live in. We see what is happening in Sweden, in Britain and in France.”
Ms Listhaug added that Europeans “need to understand the situation in Israel better.” This may sound like common sense, but it is completely at odds with the one-sided approach most European politicians and other nations instinctively take against Israel.
