VALLEY PATRIOT EDITORIAL
Anti-Semitic, hate group Massachusetts Peace Action (MAPA) can hide behind the name “PEACE” (see letter) but those of us who pay attention are not fooled.
Their goal is to masquerade as a civil and human rights organization (as many pro-terror groups do) in an effort to oppose any peace in Israel, as well as side with the Hamas propaganda about land disputes, settlements, and calling the wall protecting Jewish citizens an “apartheid wall.”
Clearly their aim is to flip the WWII equasion and paint the Jews of today as the new Nazis. They oppose funding for Israel. They oppose the U.S. arming Israel with defensive weapons, and they have never once opposed the efforts and actions of the Muslim terrorists in the so called “Palestinian Territories.”
In fact, they make excuses for them.
They even opposed Massachusetts senators going to Israel to see the terror threat for themselves, fearing that their fantasy-land propaganda against Israel and the Jews would be discredited by the reality senators would see on the ground.
First, they tried to bully senators not to go.
When that didn’t work, they drummed up a fake charge against them, claiming they were engaged in “conflicts of interest” because the senate took a symbolic vote (supporting Israel) shortly thereafter.
There is no end to the depth of deception and trickery these so called “peace activists” will go to in order to demonize Israel and the Jews. Even going so far as to claim that being anti-Israel is not the same as being anti-Semitic. And while that might be true in some small, isolated cases, it’s certainly not the case here.
MAPA is a vile, deceptive organization that supports the efforts of terrorists with their flowery language of human rights and the “peace movement”. It is nothing more than modern day, real life, Nazi propaganda.
We saw this years ago when “Wheels of Justice” came to North Andover and Andover claiming to be “peace activists”, oOnly to spout pro-terror, anti-semitic propaganda filled with denials of the holocaust and other racist claims.
Now, the head of MAPA, Cole Harrison, is upset that The Valley Patriot didn’t use their language of deception while describing them in a story last month.
Yes, Mr. Harrison, I understand fully why the head of a Jew hating, anti semitic, pro-terror organization might take exception when someone like me publicly blows your cover and calls you out for what you are.
I also understand why you might think a letter to the editor using the same, tired, jew hating, pro-terrorist talking points about “peace” might be the right way to seduce even ONE of my readers.
But, you came to the wrong place.
Nobody is fooled.
