Hamas Swastika groupies

The Gaza marchers bearing a flag with a swastika on it make their goal clear, the media try to hide it and the cheering useful idiots don't get it - or do they?

The Moloch worshippers were at it again, this time burning tires at Israel’s gates. How inventive from a people who can do nothing else – yet gain friendship from the adoring Left.

Or is it that some people are simply attracted to evil?

So we learn that the Parkland shooter who murdered 17 Florida high schoolers keeps getting fan mail – welcome to love as a mental disorder.

Typical is this one as cited by The Denver Post: “Your eyes are beautiful and the freckles on your face make you so handsome.” Which sounds like love letters from Bernie Sanders and Geraldo Rivera to the Palestinian Arabs who tried and keep trying to crash Israel’s borders with weapons in their fists and murder in their hearts.

Over the weekend, more rioting, more dead; exactly as they want it for the cameras and the headlines…though not the swastikas.

That symbol, which on Friday they flew with their flags, they’d rather keep hushed – and most of the media obliged. So this isn’t about land and it wasn’t about land when their Founding Father, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin al-Husseini, met with Hitler to share likeminded plans for the Jews. This was about genocide…and so it is to this day.

Now the Mufti’s offspring come in waves with elaborate sympathy and support for them from a gallery of useful idiots.

This needs further study, this question of what attracts thinking people to mindless brutes.

There’ve been others whose reflex is automatic against the Jewish State. Some, though, glory in it too much…like Geraldo, and as for Bernie, we figured him out months ago when on these pages we called him the most dangerous man in America. After last year’s blood libel of his, same as this year’s, we wrote --

“What a creepy character this man has turned out to be. He is into full-blown ‘Jews poisoned the wells’ territory. He is toxic and he is poisonous…”

Count on this communist senator from Vermont to always be “horrified” by Israel’s actions to defend itself…and to “mourn the loss of life” only if they are Arabs.

Ditto, word for word, from a host at Israel’s Army Radio, Galei Tzahal, Kobi Meidan, who, on Facebook, after last week’s riot, expressed “pain and concern” not for the IDF, but for the terrorists.

I need to repeat this – that an anchorman for Army Radio declares himself heartbroken for Israel’s sworn enemy.

This was duly investigated by his military superiors, but even from here, this sounds more like a medical alert. “Sorry we won” – an illness that persists among the heartbroken Left since 1948.

The broadcaster later apologized. Or was forced to do so, to keep his job. But either way, he’s another one who “understands” the other side.

Playwright Eugene Ionesco explains that away in his famous drama “Rhinoceros” – “To understand is to justify.”

Then there’s the “Miss Lonelyhearts” approach to this, where women of a certain kind seek and find romance in the darkest places – jailhouse groupies. The best source on this comes from ABC-News, which finds at least 50,000 women offering themselves to men behind bars…plus this:

“Men serving time for some of the most notoriously heinous crimes apparently have enough sex appeal to turn death row into a sort of lovers' lane.”

Go figure.

ISIS also drew them, men and women, for the romance of chopping people’s heads off.

No, there is no figuring people who support the “Palestinian cause” when what it means, Geraldo and Bernie and CNN and Haaertz and NYT, and the BBC is that your banner is the swastika.
