Break the Parents Circle of Anti-Israel Hate (Part I)

The views of the Israeli Parents Circle—Families Forum (PCFF) are “deeply repugnant,” the Australian-Israeli Arnold Roth has written, whose daughter died in the infamous 2001 Hamas terrorist attack on a downtown Jerusalem pizzeria. Such context is critical in evaluating anti-Israel PCFF spokespersons like Robi Damelin, who recently appeared at a February 14 Foundation for Middle East Peace event at Washington, DC’s Middle East Institute (MEI).

Howard Sumka from PCFF’s American affiliate introduced Damelin as a “moral authority” on Israel’s conflicts with its Arab neighbors and a “world traveler who takes her message all over the place.” She lost her son David to a Fatah sniper at an Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) West Bank checkpoint during a March 2002 shooting. During a month that saw a Palestinian terrorist violence wave, the sniper killed seven IDF soldiers, including their commander David and a beloved volunteer paramedic who offered aid, along with three civilians.

While Damelin and PCFF have won prestigious awards and praise from Democratic congressmen, the British-Israeli terrorism victim Kay Wilson adamantly rejects Damelin’s conceit as a “moral High Priestess.” Wilson’s own “moral authority” derives from narrowly surviving a brutal 2010 knife assault by two Palestinian terrorists that killed her fellow female hiker in a Jerusalem woods. Damelin’s “overused cliché” of “cycle of violence” leaves Wilson cold, an example of what Israel’s NGO Monitor assesses as PCFF’s consistent “immoral equivalence between terror victims and terrorists.”

You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
