Palestinian Apologists Mistake Yeshivas For Madrassas

It dawned on me--how Palestinian Arabs, and the apologists who defend their murder of civilians, so easily excuse the murder of defenseless teenagers in Yeshiva Merkaz Harav. Their justification run like this:

the chairman of the Scottish Palestine Solidarity Campaign, Mike Napier, has written that Mercaz Harav is "a training center for illegal occupation, murder and Arabs to the gas chambers."

...Napier added: "Ala Abu Dhaim killed eight students who were being trained to oppress and dispossess him, his family, his entire people. He was himself killed by an armed student."

...The blog continued: "The syllabus at the yeshiva, according to Napier, includes "contempt for all Gentiles, not only Arabs"; poisoning wells; and stealing the organs of non-Jews. Not the usual Talmud and Torah; or perhaps, for Napier, this is exactly what Talmud and Torah entails.

The problem is that the Merkaz Harav Kook Yeshiva apparently is being mistaken for something like this fine Palestinian house of worship:

Israeli yeshiva cloaked racism in religion
By Joyce Chediac

Suppose a group of KKKers and other white supremacists had their own “church” that was really a center for justifying and organizing murderous attacks on African Americans. Suppose an African-American person, tired of lynchings, tortures, beatings and humiliation of his people, came into this church with guns blazing.

Would there be any doubt that this was a reaction to racism, and not hatred of Christians? Wouldn’t it be clear who were the oppressed and who were the oppressors?

Something much like this recently happened in Jerusalem, but the real relationship of forces has been deliberately obscured by the Israeli and U.S. governments and the corporate media. [emphasis added]
Give Chediac credit for at least giving, if unintentionally, an accurate description of Islamist Madrassas. She, like the rest of the apologists for terrorism, haven't the foggiest notion of what yeshivas in general and Merkaz HaRav Kook are really all about.

Rav Kook once said, "Better by far to err by the love that cannot see, than the hatred that is blind".

But for people like this--as with the terrorists they defend--hate trumps truth.
