MC’s latest report concerns a visit to Sderot by a busload of leftists and peaceniks on a road trip to the border with Gaza.
Day 15: Cold Steel
My wife and I stopped off at the bakery in the middle of town to buy some confectionary for Shabbat dinner tonight. Just up the road, ill-informed members of a ‘Peace Bus’ were trying to give the people of Sderot their message of cultural Marxist peace. This was the result (many thanks to Vlad Tepes for editing and uploading this video):
To Sderot, ‘peace’ means war and war means peace. Thirteen years and many thousands of hate missiles have removed any sympathy for the useful idiots who want to give peace a chance. Imagine how a child feels when no matter what he does, he gets beaten for it. Thus is Sderot, there is no reasoning with Hamas, so any peace is going to be so ephemeral as to be a daydream. A ‘Peace Bus’ carrying lefties and Arabs is not going to be viewed as anything but contemptible.
The credibility of the pro-Palestine lobby should be getting very thin now that they have attacked Jews with no connection at all to Israel, and many times over. But somehow the penny doesn’t drop that this is about anti-Semitism and nothing else. “Kill the Jews” is a giveaway: it is the traditional chant of the pogrom going back over a hundred years, and no doubt was used at the York massacre in 1190.
Some things never change, and the hatred of Ishmael for Isaac and of Esau for Jacob knows no bounds. This same enmity has come down the pages of history. Sephardic Jewry has always had to deal with the problems of Islam and dhimmitude. The Ashkenazim had to deal with European despots and their petty hatreds. Now we have a combination of both Islamic and socialistic pogroms to cope with, but now we also have an army, and can fight back.
They went into Gaza last night. The noise today has been continuous; we had a series of missiles over this morning but nothing since. I pray for our soldiers, may Yah keep them safe as they fight the forces of evil.
Islam can be fought, must be fought.

Note from the Baron: Vlad, who processed the video material embedded above, had this to say about Sderot and the “peace bus”:
They shouldn’t have kicked them out, although I totally get the anger. They should have made them stay in a field two minutes from a bomb shelter. And that would, I guarantee you, convert them into rational human beings. If they go to Gaza they won’t change their views at all.
