We Israelis Are All Terror Supporters

When I hear and read right-wing pundits and writers slapping the “terror supporter” label on the foreheads of their political rivals, I wonder if they are just doing their masters’ bidding – or perhaps it’s just been years since they peeked in the mirror.

I presume (giving them the benefit of the doubt) that some of these people, like all those who hurl that accusation at others, are not very well-versed in the history of Jewish terror. For example, they must be convinced that Shlomo Ben-Yosef – a member of the Irgun pre-state militia, and the first and esteemed “martyr for the Zionist cause” – was a heroic freedom fighter. Not for nothing are countless streets named for him and a monument was erected in his memory. These same people would surely be surprised to hear he was really just a petty terrorist. His one and only operation to free the homeland was a grenade attack on a bus filled with Arab civilians. Thus, those who revere his memory are actually terror supporters.
