The title of this post may seem like a no-brainer. But consider this: No one has noted, objectively speaking, how peculiar the Mumbai hit list actually was: Two Five-Star Hotels, a movie theater, a popular restaurant, … a religious center run by Hasidic Jews?
It really sucks that reporters aren’t noting the attack on the Nariman House without a pause or a question.
I know I know, Jews, just like Americans, are the bogeymen for the terrorists. And Nariman catered to Israelis, so like, what did they expect?
Oy. The way we’ve come to “understand” the terrorists’ frame—as if it has some traceable political logic —is disappointing. It should not be a ho-hum statement when a religious outreach center for Jews is on a terrorist hit list.
Where are the editorials and public statements specifically pointing out and condemning the racist aspect of these attacks?
