Why is This Passover Different?

Prof. Steven Plaut,

In the Passover Seder there is a song that is sung entitled "V?hee she-amda" and which includes a verse that says, "Not once but repeatedly they arose to annihilate us, but we were rescued by God."

Why is this year?s Passover different from all other Passovers?

This year?s Passover is different in one important matter. Throughout Jewish history the rising up of anti-Semites seeking the annihilation of the Jews was matter-of-fact, mundane, expected, routine. There was never a time in which anti-Semitic savages were not seeking the destruction of the Jews.

What is different at the start of the 21st century is that now the anti-Semites arising up and seeking to destroy Jews are allied with and supported by the Jewish Left. The Jewish Left has formed an axis of evil, an entente, with anti-Semitism. Jewish Leftists are marching for a victory for Palestine, as well as a victory for Saddam and Arab fascism in general. They support every single measure and proposal designed to weaken Israel and make it vulnerable and destructible. The more radical among the Jewish Leftists cheer on the terrorists, and applauded the Passover massacre of a year ago. The Jewish Left is serving as fig leaf for anti-Semitism, and leftist apologists and court Jews are serving those seeking to annihilate Jews.

The Israeli Tenured Left is utilizing its pampered and protected position to support the enemy in time of war and encourage anti-Israel and anti-Semite barbarians all over the globe, supplying them with aid and comfort and a usable defense against charges that they are anti-Semites. The Tikkun Left is willing to promote peace with terrorists to the last Israeli. The Jews for a Second Holocaust are roaming the world urging that Israel be boycotted and dismembered, while arming and strengthening the Palestinian fascists.

The "moderate" Labor party-Meretz Left is still obsessed with historic revisionism, of lying about its own role in the Oslo massacres and in creating the threat to Israel?s very existence. The very same people who rescued Arafat from oblivion, who invited the terrorocracy of Tunis to swap its press conferences there for the chance to place suicide bombers on Israeli school buses, the people who imported thousands of terrorists into Israeli territory, who armed and bankrolled them, these are the very same people now whining that Israelis are still being killed because of the settlements. There is no limit to their gall. Their policies have produced 1,300 murders and they insist the refusal to continue to apply their failed and insane policies is what has produced the bloodshed, that the only salvation is more Oslo national suicide.

This year, we really should add a clause to the Passover seder, not only celebrating the rescue of Israel from the anti-Semites of history, but pleading that Israel now be rescued from the treasonous Jewish collaborators, allied with Arab fascism, assisting the anti-Semites, the terrorists, the savages, and the Nazis.
