Today, the White House condemned Israel for “shelling of a UNRWA school in Gaza, which reportedly killed and injured innocent Palestinians – including children – and UN humanitarian workers.” The White House went on to condemn “those responsible for hiding weapons in United Nations facilities in Gaza.”

Meanwhile, Joe Scarborough, the former Republican Congressman who masquerades as a conservative for pay on MSNBC, condemned Israel wholeheartedly, stating in full anti-Semitic fervor, “This is asinine. This continued killing of women and children in a way that appears to be indiscriminate is asinine.” Piers Morgan, formerly of CNN and now of the unemployment line, tweeted in similar fashion: “Israel’s making a massive mistake with this monstrous child-slaughtering military strategy. Someone needs to rein @netanyahu in… fast.”

First off, only anti-Semitism or generalized Western self-loathing can explain the White House’s continued attempts to draw moral equivalence between those who hide and fire rockets from behind children with those attempting to defend themselves from such rockets. Both Jewish and Arab civilian casualties are solely the fault of those who use Arab human shields while attempting to kill Jewish civilians.
