Protesters hurl “Israel apartheid” charge — at Israeli-Arab MK

Yesterday in Newton, Massachusetts, members of a campus organization called Brandeis Students for Justice in Palestine (BSJP) disrupted a town hall meeting between representatives of the local Jewish community and five members of Israel’s parliament, the Knesset. The protesters chanted, “Israel is an apartheid state and the Knesset is an apartheid parliament!”

Nothing terribly unusual there — the absurd, baseless “apartheid” charge is routinely hurled at the Jewish state. But Elder of Ziyon picked out a telling detail from this incident:

Notice that the BSJP press release … only mentions the names of 3 of the 5 MKs [Members of Knesset] who visited.

The reason?

Because one of the others was Ilan Gilon, from the far left Meretz party.

And the other was Raleb Majadele, of Labor – who is an Arab!

There are currently 14 MK’s who are Arab. If Israel is truly attempting to enforce an apartheid-style system, they’re doing a pretty poor job of it.

Irony, thy name is Brandeis Students for Justice in Palestine.

    I know what the Scriptures say too, and while God will protect Israel, He only promises to preserve a remnant. We have a duty NOW to stay informed and stand up to this kind of thing whenever and wherever we find it! Jews are dieing all over the world NOW; and the more this kind of lie infiltrates mainstream thought, the more bold the forces of evil will become. Shalom.

    Israel has been hated because of the anti-christ spirit that is in the world even now. It comes as no surprise to me that this spirit accuses her relentlessly wiht lies. We know that the word syas he will protect her!

    It doesnt matter what people try to say or do against the nation that GOD chose for Himself. ” I will put My name in your hearts, you will be MY people and I will be your GOD” “Those who bless you, I will bless, and those who curse you I will curse them also.” These are biblical truthes that cannot be denied or forgotten, for if you forget, you run the risk of God’s fury. The enemy will always try ti incite anger against Isreal, cause the enemy knows how special Isreal is to God.

Rabbi’s Commentary
Answering His Call, Faithfully and Joyfully

2014 has certainly been a year of struggles. But those challenges have been answered by God, and by His faithful followers. The Fellowship and our generous friends have been able to offer assistance to those who need it most, from the Holy Land to the former Soviet Union, and we look hopefully to the coming year as one of peace, prosperity, and repairing the world.
