Opinion page editor Rick Holmes and other writers blog about national politics and issues. Holmes & Co. is a Blog for Independent Minds, a place for a free-flowing discussion of policy, news and opinion. This blog is the online cousin of the Opinion section of the MetroWest Daily News in Framingham, Mass. As such, our focus starts there and spreads to include Massachusetts, the nation and the world. Since successful blogs create communities of readers and writers, we hope the \x34& Co.\x34 will also come to include you.

I’m always amazed when PLO propaganda surfaces in an editorial in our beloved paper, which is what happened in a recent editorial when it was reported that the Israeli prime minister was equated with Assad, Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran, because he drove the final nail in the coffin of a two state solution by approving housing in a suburb of Jerusalem, which the MWDN editorial referred to as the West Bank. So the paper equates the murder of thousands of citizens in Syria and the stated intention of Hamas to obliterate Israel with the issuing of  a building permit for what will be essentially the kind of low income housing that is needed near a major, urban capital.



News flash: the land which Rick identifies as the “West Bank”is the site of a Jewish community which dated back at least 3000 years, and which provided homes for many of the people who worked in the Temple (what Rick would probably call Ultra Orthodox Extremists), and whose descendents lived there until 1931, when over 300 of them were murdered by Arab terrorists and the remainder driven from their homes. While the world was silent. And while the terrorists were receiving British weapons.  The site of the new “settlements” is a traditional Jewish community and a traditional part of Jewish Jerusalem, and if rebuilding  a site of Arab terrorism is a nail in the coffin of a peace agreement, then I guess Rick  and the freakoid would be ready to hand over the World Trade Center site to Al Qaeda.



Get real. the editorial was an anti semitic whitewash, a blood libel just in time for Christmas.
