Just imagine for a moment, the global outcry, the constant, international condemnation and utter contempt, the demonstrations and screaming masses outside the UN, bearing signs and yelling \"racist pigs!!!\" - had this been an Israeli law, confirmed by the Israeli courts, and calling for the death penalty for anyone selling land to a Muslim or Arab in Israel. The press would have written column up and column down, from London to Dubai. We would hear of nothing else! Israel would again be compared to South Africa in the midst of the most racist and oppressive moments of that inglorious past. The President of the United States would stand before the world in a global broadcast, demanding the repeal of this insidious attack on reason and Western values – yes, it would be called an attack on civilization itself, and the very reason we fought so bitterly against Nazi oppression. But given that the law has been not only suggested, but actually confirming by the Palestinian Authority in it’s court of law - that peace loving bastion of Arabic Muslim love and reconciliation – calling for the death penalty for an Arab selling land to an Israeli, it all becomes permissible, and downright understandable. We don\"t see a word printed about it. No one makes a single mention of it in the news. The BBC is quiet. The law receives no condemnation whatsoever. Sometimes I seriously wonder if the world is in a state of mass hypnosis, and we stand here, like in some movie where the planet has been invaded by aliens who take over the bodies of mankind, leaving but a small group who in random searches for those still human, band together in fear and disbelief, wondering how they will survive in this seemingly hopeless reality preposterously thrust upon them….Does anyone wonder why Israelis have a common sense that there will never be peace? Does anyone question whether a regime of hatred and evil like the Nazi National Socialists could occur again? Does anyone serious question Israeli contempt for their so-called modern, democratic partners in the Western world? Who can blame them?
