Doing the right thing

The difference between them and us:

They:

Name schools, streets and public squares after those who kill Jews... erect monuments to them, and list them as heroes and martyrs in their school textbooks.

We:

Arrest and extradite those suspected of participating in the mass murder of Muslims.

Mind you, we will get no acknowledgement or credit for this act. Not from the UN. Not from the EU. Not from the Americans. Not from the hundreds of Human Rights organizations. And certainly not from the Palestinians... nor any of the Muslim countries in the Middle East (not even those with whom we have peace treaties).

But it's still the right thing to do.

It's tough, seeing the extradition go through, while remembering that during WWII, many Serbs protected and befriended the Jews, while many, many Croats, led by the Ustashe, and many local Moslems, influenced by the Mufti Husseini, disgusted even the SS by finding the ugliest and most painful and degrading ways to kill Jews.

Very good point. The fact that it's true is saddening to say the least, I think that it's at least slightly indicative of how far away we are from peace, but that's just me. Great point though, it's something that everyone has always known, but to articulate it in the way you did really helped to drive the point home.

We are a humble people who seek no notoriety. We do what is right regardless of what others may think of us. We ARE the light unto the nations.
