Palestinian flags flying over Jewish day camps in America. Insanity!

When a Jewish day camp in America flies the Palestinian flag as Palestinians are killing Israelis you know that PC in the US has gone off the cliff. 

This is what happened at Camp Solomon Schechter.

They claim to be “unabashed pro-Israel.” They should call themselves “embarrassing terror supporters.”

When criticized, they said they did it to “help develop empathy” and a “teachable moment.”


Some campers and staff were upset by the raising of the Palestinian flag.

Solomon Schechter administration indicated in their email that they raised the flag as a sign of “friendship and acceptance” for a group of visiting Palestinian Muslims and Christians.

What the administration do not say is that Israel has a Christian and Muslim population that were once “Palestinian Arabs” but moved to become Israeli citizens because of the intolerance and hate within Palestinian society.

As reported in the Geller Report on July 30, “David Jacoby, a lifetime Seattleite and longtime member of the Jewish community, expressed disappointment at the actions of the camp. ‘Solomon Shechter flying the Palestinian flag is a feel-good bromide that creates the illusion of problem-solving’ said Jacoby.  ‘It’s well-intentioned, but it misses the point.  Two decades of peace negotiations between Israel and Palestinians have failed primarily because of the Palestinian’s refusal to recognize Israel as a Jewish state.’”

As Jacoby’s wife, Beth, says, “the time to raise the Palestinian flag over our summer camps is when they stop burning the Israeli flag at theirs.”

If only it was as simple as Palestinian Arabs burning the Israeli flag

I would add “and stop inciting terror and, in Hamas summer camps, stop teaching Palestinian kids to kill Jews.”

What these naive administrators and the camp students don’t understand is that the Palestinian students that receive hugs and see their flag flying high on Jewish day camps go home and tell their family and school friends that even the American Jewish kids understand and sympathize with their struggle against the Zionists.

These ‘useful idiots’ fail to produce peace. Instead, they inadvertently embolden a tougher anti-Israel attitude by the Palestinian kids they host and embrace.

  • Fly their flag, if you must, when Palestinians stop slaughtering innocent Israelis in the name of religion or indoctrinated Jew-hatred.
  • Fly it after their corrupt leaders decide to finally acknowledge the right and existence of the Jewish State of Israel.
  • Fly it after a permanent peace treaty is signed between Israel and Palestine.

Something tells me we will not see that flag flying in our lifetime - not because we Israeli Jews lack empathy, but because the Palestinian political and religious leadership remains hateful anti-Israel, anti-Jewish inciters.

My opinion was formed from living in Israel, witnessing the horror of terror, reading the misinformation and downright lies perpetrated by the Western media, seen the incompetence of Israeli leaders to project the facts. My website comes from a particularly personal perspective. The articles may be controversial and provocative. For whatever strikes Israel today will surely visit you tomorrow.
