I Can’t Believe That I’m Seeing Anti-Semitic and Anti-Israel Material on Facebook
By Richard Anthony – BarbWire guest contributor
Because of my support for Israel on Facebook, I’ve been called everything from a “bought and paid for Jewish troll” to a “Jew dog whore.” Any time I saw anti-Israel propaganda on Facebook I stood-up and called all of the “haters” out. So I wrote the article below and posted it to my Facebook page. The majority of people on Facebook (in my circle anyway) “like” and agree with me.
Here is what I wrote in response to seeing so much “Hate Israel” material on Facebook. I had to make good on my word and actually had to “un-friend” one of my Facebook “friends”:
Apparently some people are so ignorant and close minded when it comes to Israel’s fight to exist. Let me reiterate – If you are against Israel then you are for Hamas, and if you are for Hamas…you are the enemy of not only Israel, but the United States of America, and a tool of Satan. Hamas hides behind their women and children…they are filthy cowards and pigs.
So just in case some of you didn’t get it the first time, let me re-post this for you ignorant fools who hate Israel and support Hamas.
I can’t believe what I’m seeing here on Facebook!
I have seen anti-Israel propaganda posted here and, to be frank, it disgusts me to no end. How short some memories are. When I was stationed in what was West Germany in the mid-1970s, I got on a train and visited Dachau Concentration Camp. Even though there were no dead bodies to see, even though the camp looked nothing like what the old photographs depicted, you could “sense” death all around you. It wasn’t a smell in the air, but it was a feeling that hung all around and you could “feel” the suffering of thousands of people as sure as you felt the wind.
When I see our own American news agencies bashing Israel, it sickens me, if it weren’t for Judaism or the Jewish people, there would have been no Jesus Christ and no Christianity. Jesus was a Jew, and so were his disciples. No people on this planet have suffered like the Jews …none. They have been persecuted since the time of Babylon, since the time of the Pharaohs of Egypt, the time of the Romans and in the middle ages, Jews were blamed for the “Black Death” and were burnt at the stake. In Spain, during the Inquisition, Jews were told to “repent” and were forced to convert to Christianity or die by the evil inquisitor Torquemada. In the last century, we saw over six million Jews exterminated by the Nazis just because they were Jewis.
And now, in this very country, at this very moment, we see the exact same hatred of the Jews that was seen in Hitler’s Reich. African Americans think that they have the market cornered on slavery, but in the middle of the 20th century, the Jews were once again made into slaves. No one tribe of human beings have had to endure this…not one…except the Jews.
If I see any postings of anti-Semitic material, if I see any anti-Israel propaganda posted here by anyone- if they are on my “friends list,” I will immediately terminate my association with that person.
I will not be associated with someone like that…period.
I am not a Jew, but the way I see it, Christians owe everything to them, and we owe Israel (at the very least) our support and prayers. If you are against Israel, that means you support Hamas, and if you support Hamas, you are the enemy of freedom.
If Israel falls to Islam, so will the west fall, and if that happens, you can kiss everything and everyone you love goodbye, because Islam only takes prisoners to make them slaves.
If someone disagrees with me, that is their right, but I will not associate with such a person.
