Toulouse and the Park Hotel

Tuesday will mark ten years on the Gregorian calendar since the Seder Night Massacre in Netanya. Giulio Meotti sees some parallels between that horrific event and last week's events in Toulouse, France.
While I was reading about Toulouse, I was reminded of Michel Barnier, the French foreign minister, who spent a night in Yasser Arafat’s Ramallah compound as a sign of “unconditional support”, while the Palestinian Arab bombers continued to burn Jewish children.

I thought about the owners of the Park Hotel, the Cohen family, who lived through the Vichy regime in France.

I thought about Marianne Lehmann Zaoui, who was born in Germany and escaped extermination by fleeing to France, where she and her sister hid in a Catholic village. After the war, she taught English in a high school in France and had three children. In 1992 she moved to Israel, joining Lucien, her second husband.

Marianne’s relatives are convinced that, with her death at the Park Hotel, she saved the life of her husband, who was slightly injured, and of her nine-year-old grandson, who was unharmed, because her body absorbed the impact of the explosion.

I thought of Rav Jonathan Sandler, who tried to protect his two children with his own body.The terrorist shot at the bodies from close range to be sure that they had been killed.

I hope that Clara Rosenberger’s pair of shoes and the little body of Miriam Monsonego, wrapped in its white shroud, will forever haunt the West's frivolous conscience, the European commissioners who engage in blood thinning and my fellow journalists, imbued with cynicism, hypocrisy and anti-Semitism.

But as happened with the Park Hotel, the world will remain silent in the face of this newest killing spree of Jews in Toulouse.
Read the whole thing.

And one thinks little of Israel's government, so afraid of world opinion, it wouldn't kill Arafat like any normal self-respecting country would.

Jewish blood is cheap. Israel's government purchased a false peace with the blood of thousands on its hands. Even today, it cannot bring itself to say "enough"!

That is why the Netanya massacre victims must always be remembered and the the fact entire Jewish families were wiped out in the country that was supposed to protect them.

Peace with those who seek to kill all Jews by definition, is impossible.
