This post of Greta Berlin reminds us what the role of the international community should and should not be in accurately demonstrates what a bad influence “pro-Palestine” international figures are. In this instance she is trying blame Israel for everything wrong with the world – including yesterday’s disgusting attack. These ideas are not only ridiculous, but they are dangerous. They deepen the suspicion and animosity of both peoples in our tiny strip of land with their conspiracy theories. While they back up their notions of perfect justice with such unsubstantiated arguments, they do harm to all of us who need to finally somehow share this land.
With friends like these, who needs enemies? Ms. Berlin is of course not unique. She is not any different than Mr. Edelson and other self-proclaimed “pro-Israel” figures, who do nothing but spread hate between us and the Palestinians. Ms. Berlin concludes Israeli secret agents are behind yesterday’s attack in Paris. Mr. Edelson is certain that the Palestinian people were invented only to destroy Israel. It doesn’t matter if you are an activist from Michigan or a business tycoon from Nevada: don’t be pro-Palestine, don’t be pro-Israel. Be pro-peace, be for an agreed upon Two State solution based on international law and mainly on what the two sides themselves can agree to.
