- The Sin of Jews Building Houses – David Suissa
Listen to John Kerry’s speech on the comatose Middle East “peace process,” or follow the serial condemnations against Israel at the UN, and you’d think that the biggest sin in the world is that Jews build too much. Think about that. The biggest problem with the Jews is not that they go on terror rampages that murder thousands of innocents, or that they jail poets, hang gays or stone women. No, it’s that they build too much.
The reason this Jewish construction is considered such a sin is that it’s happening inside disputed areas which Israel captured in a defensive war in 1967, when its Arab neighbors did everything they could to throw the Jews into the sea.
There already is a Palestinian state – it’s called Gaza, and it’s run by religious anti-Semitic madmen sworn to destroy the Zionist state. If you go by Kerry’s speech, this desire to destroy the Jewish state, not to mention the chronic Palestinian refusal to negotiate directly with Israel, are smaller obstacles to peace than having too many Jews building too many homes in too many wrong places.
