The Real Victims

August 5, 2009 at 16:08 Leave a comment

Practically everyone in Israeli public life has displayed outrage and shock following the murders at the Beit Ha-Agudah on Saturday night. If there are those who aren’t particularly outraged or shocked, they have tactfully enough opted to keep a low profile in the days following the brutal murders.

Even Shas, the Haredi party catering to the Mizrahi population, have condemned the attack. Already the day after the murders, the party issued a statement saying that even though they don’t approve of the gay lifestyle, they are against killing homosexuals.

How generous.

However, in addition, Shas MK Nissim Zeev (that’s right, the guy who wants to remind us of the KBH on the shekel bills) couldn’t help himself, and took the opportunity to point out that Shas was also a victim in this whole affair. In fact, in MK Zeev’s world, the fact that the continuous anti-gay propaganda that prominent members of Shas have been spewing forth for years has caused outrage in the wake of the murders is nothing short of a modern-day blood libel.
