It’s not getting much media attention but Palestinians have moved into former Israeli settlements in Gaza where they are setting fires and using sledge hammers to smash synagogues, and putting up the flag of the Militant Islamist terrorist group, Hamas.
Wouldn’t it be nice if Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas were to condemn such destruction and say plainly that it is wrong to destroy Jewish or Christian houses of worship?
Imagine if he were to say that someday he hopes there will be peace and that these synagogues could then be in use again. Muslims freely attend mosques in Israel. Why not imagine that someday there could be Jews again in the Gaza — as business partners, as tourists, as residents?
The truth is that such ideas are unimaginable. That tells you a lot.
