I can see clearly now

Here’s a piece of poetry for you:

“Oh, you who murdered Allah’s pious prophets
Oh, you who were brought up on spilling blood
You have been condemned to humiliation and hardship.
Oh Sons of Zion, oh most evil among creations
Oh barbaric monkeys, wretched pigs.”

No surprise, at least to me, that it’s from an official PA broadcast. The Times of Israel has the details here.

It’s out and out anti-semitism; bigotry and hatred, pure and simple. Incitement. And all the usual suspects – the BBC, the Guardian, the so-called Human Rights organizations – are as silent as the grave.

How long would it take, do you think, for a reaction if I posted an equivalent piece about Muslims? It would be wrong, and I would never do it. But the double standards are starkly clear for all to see. (Or, in the case of the usual suspects, are clear not to see.)
