Israel is the same as IS

Op-ed by Adli Sadeq, PLO Ambassador to India and regular columnist for the official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida:
“While the world is mobilizing against the Islamic IS [organizations], which is natural, understandable and justified, it is not natural and justified to turn a blind eye to the Jewish IS [organizations], because slaughtering people with knives is no less horrifying than bombing a child with a mortar 50 times his weight, turning him into dust. Just as the IS of the knives are pursued, so must the IS of the F-16s (i.e., Israel). Just as Islam – as a culture and religion – opposes war crimes and the needless murder of human souls, Western culture and its religions also oppose war crimes and massacres of innocent people. It is now evident that people mobilize against [certain] criminals, while remaining shamefully silent in view of other criminals.”
