Bigotry Toward Arabs

August 12, 1985

I think Geyelin has some basic misconceptions about Jews. Although Jesus was Jewish there is no reason to assume that all Jews are as tolerant and forgiving of personal and collective abuse as he was. As far as I know, Jews are human beings just like everyone else, and when they are threatened, as is the almost continual case by their fellow Semites, the Arabs, they get angry. Yes, they eventually hate. Arabs don't apologize for hating Jews certainly!

Why does it seem that Jews and the Israeli government in particular are required to be better Christians than the rest of the world? Will Geyelin also write articles complaining about black distrust of whites, Sunni Muslims dislike of Shias, Irish Catholics showing enmity toward Irish Protestants, Iraq is feeling murderous toward Iranians? The list could go on forever.

Why point the accusing finger at any one group?
