Leftwing/Jihad convergence: Israel the New Pariah State

Here the culture-destroying Secular Progressives have chosen the side of Jihad as well.  They are nothing if not consistent.

THINK TANK: ISRAEL FACES GLOBAL DELEGITIMIZATION CAMPAIGN

Israel is facing a global campaign of delegitimization, according to a report by the Reut Institute, made available to the cabinet on Thursday. The Tel Aviv-based security and socioeconomic think tank called on ministers to treat the matter as a strategic threat.

The report cites anti-Israel demonstrations on campuses, protests when Israeli athletes compete abroad, moves in Europe to boycott Israeli products, and threats of arrest warrants for Israeli leaders visiting London.

Reut says the campaign is the work of a worldwide network of private individuals and organizations. They have no hierarchy or overall commander, but work together based on a joint ideology – portraying Israel as a pariah state and denying its right to exist.

The “delegitimizers” cooperate with organizations engaging in legitimate criticism of Israel’s policy in the territories such as Amnesty and Human Rights Watch, blurring the line between legitimate censure and delegitimization. They also promote pro-Palestinian activities in Europe as “trendy,” the report says.

The network’s activists are not mostly Palestinian, Arab or Muslim. Many of them are European and North American left-wing activists. The Western left has changed its approach to Israel and now sees it as an occupation state, the report says.  To those left-wing groups, if in the 1960s Israel was seen as a model for an egalitarian, socialist society, today it epitomizes Western evil.

Israel’s diplomats overseas, meanwhile, must counter the attempts to delegitimize the country. “The combination of a large Muslim community, a radical left, influential, English-language media and an international university center make London fertile ground for Israel’s delegitimization,” says Ron Prosor, Israel’s ambassador in London.

“What is now happening in London universities will happen, at most, in five years at all the large universities in the United States,” he says.  The Reut report says Israel is not prepared at all to deal with the threat of delegitimization. The cabinet has not defined the issue as a threat and sees the diplomatic arena as marginal compared to the military one.

The rest, here.

Remember how completely nuts the Left went when Bush declared against the “axis of evil”?  Remember how “shocking” that was?  lol.   The Left and radical islam share their own axis of evil, and it includes Israel.  Tiny Israel’s biggest crime by far is that it is pro-U.S. and a staunch ally.  She is also perceived as “Western” and “white”, and that too is unforgiveable.  Israel is seen as “strong”, her enemies as “weak.”  Strong=evil, Weak=good.  White=evil, Brown=good, you get the picture.  That’s all you need to know about the dumbed-down morality of the Secular Progressives.
