Example text

When they report to their own people about their clashes, debates, or arguments with Israelis or the West, there is never an understanding of the other’s pain, sensitivity, loss, or ambition. Conversely, there is in Israel and in the West a whole political camp that sympathizes with the Muslims and even supports them, diffuses their grievances, and expresses them in the media. No trace of that is found on the Muslim side, and if there should be one “saint” who would dare, he would be condemned, arrested, or even gunned down or executed as a “traitor,” so uniform is the wall of hatred and so unacceptable is the understanding of the rival.

Funerals for their own favorite dead in combat, or as a result of targeted elimination by their enemies, or of the remains of Islamikaze bodies, are also accompanied by shouts; mass hysteria; shootings in the air; huge processions where the body of the dead is arraigned by the masses out of control and tossed from hand to hand; vows of vengeance for the life of the departed martyr and for his replacement by many others who would volunteer in his footsteps; and the like. Compare that to the funerals of the victims of terrorism, in the United States or Israel, or any civilized society, which are silent and dignified, intimate, and inward-turning, and you have one of the keys to comprehend the difference between the two cultures.

Add to that the universality of anti-Semitism in Islam (she heard the same derogation of the Jews in Saudi Arabia and then among European Muslims); the power of stereotypes and cultivated myths (Hirsi had never seen a Jew in either Somalia or, even much less likely, in Jedda); the fallacy of attributing these attitudes to the Arab-Israeli dispute (Somalia never was a party to it); and the lumping together of Jews and Israel as an inseparable entity, Muslim protestations to the contrary notwithstanding, and one begins to comprehend what we are talking about.
