In the wake of the atrocity in Israel too many do-gooder liberals have raised the inevitable "Well we're not any different from them" standard. This is a line that has as much credibility as "The world is a flat disc carried through the cosmos on the back of a giant elephant named Syd".
We are not like them.
We have one Baruch Goldstein. They have thousands.
We treat Baruch Goldstein as an example of how a Jew should not behave. They treat theirs like heroes.
We teach our children to hate how he became. They teach their children to be just like him.
We hang our heads in shame when we hear that a Jew has does something terrible to an innocent Arab. They hold a street party when innocent Jews are killed.
We guard our children with our lives. They strap bombs to the waists of theirs.
We value life. They value death.
If they would stop firing, we would be at peace. If we would stop firing, they would come and kill us all.
There is no comparison and anyone who thinks there is can only be called a sick Jew-hater.
