Sarah Silverman – we are not in Poland anymore

Another know-nothing penthouse liberal thinks she can lecture Israel on how to deal with its murderous enemies.

Funny she should bring up Poland. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves…

So here’s another Jewish American ready to teach the Israelis proper etiquette. This time it’s comedian Sarah Silverman, and she’s not joking on the matter of Ahed Tamimi, a Palestinian Arab “teenager” being detained for trial for repeatedly provoking Israeli soldiers – and thinking it’s cute. Slapping is her specialty.

Silverman thinks it’s cute.

Along the Internet, Tamimi is described as “best known for appearances in images and videos in which she confronts Israeli soldiers.”

In other words, she does it for publicity. She does the filming to heap scorn. She does it to humiliate. The rest of her family does it differently. They commit murder.

Tamimi comes from a long line of killers and this clan has its fingerprints all over various atrocities, including the Sbarro Jerusalem restaurant massacre, 2001.  

On cue from Amnesty Int’l, Silverman has rushed to Tamimi’s defense…and she’s doing so using Tamimi’s tactics – going public to yell injustice.

Insisting that the goldilocks terrorist be released pronto, Silverman tweets --  

“Jews have to stand up EVEN when — especially when — the wrongdoing is BY Jews/the Israeli government.”

I’m not sure what Silverman means by “wrongdoing.” In Beverly Hills it means a bad manicure.
I’m not sure what Silverman means by “wrongdoing.” In Beverly Hills it means a bad manicure. In Israel it means that every Israeli has a price on his head.

Give them money, as we do, and the Palestinian Authority pays its killers to murder Jews. Give them bricks and they build terror tunnels to murder Jews.

Does Silverman know this? Or is she like so many Jewish Penthouse Liberals who know nothing about Israel except what they read in The New York Times?

Or is she like other Liberals who think Israel is Brentwood, which has no enemies except jaywalkers, and forget that Israel is surrounded by enemies within (like Tamimi) and from all sides? I don’t know where this comes from…this need from some Jews to side with the enemy. Maybe it’s a form of Stockholm Syndrome.

Whatever it is, it is sickening…doubly so when it’s people, like Silverman, who use their fame to humiliate their own people. I hear she has 12 million followers on Twitter.

Make no mistake. Humiliation -- that is precisely Tamimi’s game…and Silverman fell right into it head over heels.

Says Silverman in her tweet, “My grandparents did not survive the atrocities of the holocaust (sic) for me to be silent about injustice.”

Well that’s good news. Her grandparents survived. Millions weren’t so lucky…especially from Poland, the land of her grandparents.

In fact 3-million Polish Jews were murdered in Polish Death Camps during the Holocaust as part of the 6-million murdered altogether.

We have all seen the picture of the grandmother dragged from her home to be beaten on the street as the Gestapo smile and laugh at her ordeal and keep slapping her with twigs.

If that were Silverman’s grandmother, it would perhaps be different for her.

The game was about humiliating the Jewish woman and breaking the spirit of the Jewish people.

That’s the smile we get from Tamimi when she “confronts Israeli soldiers.”

Tamimi is expert at spitting, pushing and slapping and that is precisely why the Jewish State rose up again…to make sure that nothing like that happens ever again.

The Israeli soldier is the symbol, the reminder that we are not in Poland anymore.

No more do we tolerate getting slapped around, pushed around, from friend or foe… if you are listening, Sarah Silverman.
