A hijab-wearing woman picked up a Palestinian flag at a Brussels memorial Thursday and then walked over to an Israeli one. What she did next was jaw-dropping. On live TV she ripped the Israeli flag into pieces and hid them underneath another flag.
It’s not clear what happened to the Palestinian flag but she didn’t leave with it.
A French-language station captured the footage at the shrine set up at Brussels’ Place de la Bourse. The onlookers said nothing to her and no one on TV said a word about it.
In another video, a man is seen at a memorial covering the Israeli flag with the Palestinian flag. People could be heard saying, “no, no, no” but no one did anything.
No one did anything but they are at this memorial with their tears and their flowers – but they don’t do anything. If they did, it would be Islamophobia.
Thousands gathered at the memorial. Some broke out in song. They sang the song Imagine by John Lennon. Some say it’s a communist song.
French Jews are leaving Paris in large numbers for Israel. A friend of mine has family in Paris and they are afraid. They don’t tell anyone they’re Jewish. Jews are suffering through another wave of terrorist anti-Semitism.
The Paris attack four months ago targeted a kosher grocery store.
We already went through this in the last century. Have we learned nothing?
