The war on Israel right now is not just about Arabs/Palestinians being evicted for not paying rent. (Just for the record, if Jewish tenants did not pay rent, they would be evicted as well.) The war on Israel is based on anti-antisemitism, and on the false belief that Jewish people are interlopers in the Middle East. They are not. Jews have been part of the fabric of the ME for thousands of years.
When the State of Israel was officially founded and recognized in 1948 (although Israel has been existence for thousands of years), the Arab countries launched a war against the tiny state. And, they have continually attacked Israel since 1948, including the infamous attack on Israel on Yom Kippur in 1973.
Once they realized that they could not defeat Israel through an actual war, the Palestinian Arabs decided to attack Israel using guerilla warfare through Hamas, Hezbollah, etc.
The late Yasser Arafat, who founded the Palestine Liberation Organization, wanted (and the leaders of Hamas want) to eliminate Israel (which, of course, would include its people). You cannot negotiate with people who want you dead. Period.
I truly believe that what underlies the hatred towards Jews is a hatred (and resentment) of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. They believe that if they can destroy Judaism, they can destroy Christianity because without Judaism there is no Christianity.
Over the next days and weeks, this blog will be posting information about the long-standing false narrative put forth by the media and anti-Israel left in this country and around the world. Israel has a right to defend its country.
The main perpetrators of anti-Jewish bigotry have been Muslims and the godless. They are also the main perpetrators of anti-Christian bigotry. Pastors are being arrested for simply trying to preach the Gospel. And, in Africa and the ME, it is Muslims who are attacking vulnerable Christians. We shall not cower in silence as Jews and Christians are attacked, verbally and physically.
