Still Waiting... The Kindness of Fools - Part II - B
I recently posted about a group of 30 intellectual & cultural elites within the State of Israel who wrote a letter to PM Olmert demanding that the IDF "provide the children of the village with full and proper protection which will guarantee these children travel to and from school in peace", and for the State of Israel to ensure their right to education in response to supposed attacks on Arab children by Jews in the Hebron region.
I highlighted the utter hypocrisy of these 30 Israeli elites, who only expressed concern for the rights of Arab children to travel to and from school in safety, while having, in the past, completely ignored attacks against Jewish children on their way to and from school, which unlike in the case of the Arab children, resulted in fatalities and serious casualties to the Jewish children.
In doing so, Purple Parrot took me to task (as can be seen in the comment section of the post) for unfairly judging these 30 elites. In response, I challenged Purple Parrot to show me an instance where these 30 elites had written a similar letter to the Prime Minister of Israel, or publicly condemned such attacks against Jewish children with the same conviction as they did the supposed attacks on the Arab students, and if she could do so, I would retract my words.
Well, G-d works in strange ways, and even though Purple Parrot has yet to provide any proof refuting my claims against these 30 elites, today's headlines have presented these 30 elites with yet another chance to prove that they don't care more about the rights of Arab children than they do Jewish ones, and another chance for Purple Parrot to make me eat my words.
Kassam rocket hits empty classroom in a Sderot school
A Qassam rocket landed in an empty classroom in a Sderot school on Sunday morning while students were in the synagogue reciting the morning prayers.
The classroom and the nearby restrooms sustained heavy damage.
"The right to education is a basic human right and the State of Israel is responsible for its full protection. We demand the IDF be instructed to provide the children of the village with full and proper protection which will guarantee these children travel to and from school in peace. We call on law enforcement authorities to apply justice to the settlers from Maon and the outpost of Havat Maon, and not stand in the way of the activists aiding the children of the villages," continued the letter.
Let's wait and see.
