Mazel sob! Desperate Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders tossed Nazi victims under the bus along with Uncle Sam to make a moral connection between the Holocaust, a genocide that gassed millions of Jews to death, and Islamophobia, an overblown yawn-inducer responsible for a measly handful of alleged hate incidents against American Muslims every year.
Sanders unleashed his Islamo-pandering to mollify a kvetching Muslim at a Virginia rally last week, after she identified herself as an “American Muslim student who aspires to change this world” and groused about media “rhetoric.”
The senator should have told her to work hard at fulfilling her dream, instead of responding with codswallop.
“I’m Jewish. My father’s family died in concentration camps. I will do everything that I can to rid this country of the ugly stain of racism which has existed for far too many years,” Bernie roared, heaving the hijab-wearing student on stage and administering her a fatwa-worthy hug.
Batty Bernie must have confused the United States with the United Arab Emirates, which uses its affluence to hide its atrocities, including arbitrary detentions and torture. America by comparison is appealing to even avowed agitators, such as self-exiled Edward Snowden, who wants to to come home to face trial.
The Islamo-migraine is the topic of our age, and will define the next presidency as much as it has destroyed the current one. The world Muslim population will overtake non-Muslim growth in the coming years, predict watchdogs, raising disturbing questions for western democracies grappling with geopolitical tensions. Will jihadists cease their holy war? Are Muslims up for a religious reformation? Can Judeo-Christian ideals survive?
Some of the richest nations are run by Muslims. Yet they are developing countries, buoyed industrially, financially, and militarily by America, making our future global security inextricably linked to the Muslim world.
Greek egghead Plato famously declared that those who were too smart to engage in politics were punished by being governed by those who were dumber. Sen. Bernie Sanders is a prime example of a lily-livered leader for advancing the fiction of Islamaphobia.
