To hear many liberals tell it, Israel is an oppressive state that employs Jewish-supremacist discrimination against its Arab Muslim residents, who have an earnest desire for peace and co-existence. The Israelis are so evil and intent of ethnically cleansing their country of Muslims that those same Muslims are left with no other choice but to take up arms and heroically fight back for the survival of their people.
The mainstream media goes a long way towards perpetuating this nonsense, which is why stories like this generally aren't seen as fit to print:
Jerusalem area Arabs once again have stoned two Israeli Magen David ambulances trying to help neighbors. This time, the medical rescue vehicles were trying to save an Arab boy who fell five floors from his home in El Azaria, a village between the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of French Hill and nearby Maaleh Adumim.
Magen David medics were resuscitating the youth when attackers began to pummel them with rocks from all directions, breaking the windshield.
Last week, a group of students and a visiting Australian narrowly escaped death when they made a wrong turn and entered an Arab village, where they were ambushed by local Arabs. One of the villagers tricked the students into driving further, where a blockade trapped the vehicle as Arab rioters attacked the car with rocks and metal pipes.
The driver was able to maneuver his car through a narrow opening and escaped the mob.
Now wait for the antisemites to come out of the woodwork and say that this story must be false because it came from the propagandising Israeli media.
