Racism?

From MVRWC comes this gem:

Last week, Israeli MK Yossi Beilin introduced a bill into the Knesset calling for the expulsion of all Jews from Hebron. But, before the vote, MK Arieh Eldad announced he had prepared an identical bill… with one slight but important difference.

Mk Eldad exchanged the words “Jewish Community of Hebron” for the words “Hebron Palestinians.” Otherwise, the bill was exactly the same. Beilin’s bill called to expel the the Jews of Hebron and Eldad’s bill called to expel the Palestinians of Hebron.

and… oh! the outrage of the left! He called for the expulsion of Palestinians!?! Oh! Voices were raised, cries of racism rang out, to which, I have been told, MK Eldad replied, “What about you?”

Indeed. Expel the Jews, that’s okay, but expel the Palestinians, that’s racist. Why? Why is it racist to expel the Palestinians and not racist to expel the Jews?

Beilin’s bill to expel the Jews from Hebron was defeated 47 to 11. Eldad’s bill was not put to vote.

It's amazing what the left (no matter where they are) will decry while accepting anything that displaces the Jews.
