Crocodile Tears

Crocodile Tears

I was moved by the cartoon strip, “Everything’s Relative,” and the writings of Jonathan Mark and Gary Rosenblatt regarding the horrible murder of the Fogel family. Sadly, the answer to Rosenblatt’s question — What if the Fogels lived in Tel Aviv? —is that it would have mattered little to what is, in essence, a reflexive anti-Israel lobby and media.

The Palestinian Authority’s crocodile tears over the Fogels should not have been accepted at face value.

A clear message from Washington to Jerusalem should be: we support Israel as our only democratic ally in the Mideast. As for the Palestinians, they need to be told by America: no more direct funding to the PA until the incitement ends.
