On November 22, 2015, tens of thousands of Israelis at Ben-Gurion International Airport and American dupes, mourned the death of Ezra Schwartz, 18, at Gush Etzion, one of illegal Jewish settlements in the West Bank at the hands of a Palestinian youth protesting against Israeli attacks on Al-Aqsa Mosque.
On November 23, Schwartz was honored by the New England Patriots in a ceremony before the football play while 70,000 fans stood in respect. Millions of Americans watching the game at home were told that Schwartz was one of many victims of Palestinian terrorism.
The owner of Patriots, Robert Kraft, is an Israel-First Zionist Jew. He demanded the public recognition of Schwartz and equated Schwartz with American soldiers, who died defending their motherland.
None of these dupes bothered to know what Schwartz was doing in an illegal Jewish settlement which is not even recognized by the White House or US State Department. For them it’s enough to know that Schwartz was an American and specially, he was among ‘Bible’s Chosen People’.
Schwartz, native of Sharon, Massachusetts, was spending his gap year, aka Birthright exchange program at Yeshivat Ashreinu, a religious madrassa in Beit Shemesh located within the US-Soviet created Israel in 1948.
On October 25, 2015, Gary Rosenblatt, editor and publisher of the Jewish week explained the reason why American Jewish parents send their teenage children to Israel during gap year: “Why do we do it – send our children to live for a school year in one of the world’s most volatile regions? For many, it is a mixture of faith, love of Israel, commitment to Zionist ideals, a rationalization that harm can come to us anywhere, and an element of denial.”
Just imagine if some American Muslim parents send their children to Gaza or Beirut during summer holidays. I bet Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump would shout anti-Muslim slogans so loud that their underpants would get wet.
Incidentally, Gush Etzion is the same Jewish settlement where Israeli soldiers killed three Yeshiva students last year to provide an excuse for invading Gaza.
