“this is because you are one of us”
We know that Israel is held to a higher standard of conduct than the Palestinians and its neighbors.
A Danish diplomat, in a troubling yet refreshing admission of the obvious, admitted it at a Jerusalem Post forum, and Caroline Glick blasted him:
Europe should apply a double standard to Israel when judging its actions compared to other Middle Eastern nations, Danish Ambassador Jesper Vahr said on Thursday, causing sparks to fly at the Jerusalem Post Diplomatic Conference in the capital.
“Israel should insist that we discriminate, that we apply double standards, this is because you are one of us,” Vahr said during a panel discussion on relations between Israel and Europe.
Israelis sometimes ask why Europe applies a different standard to its neighboring countries, such as Syria, Vahr said. “Those are not the standards that you are being judged by. It is not the standards that Israel would want to be judged by,” he said.
Israel should want to be held to European standards, not Middle Eastern ones, he said.
“So I think you have the right to insist that we apply double standards and put you to the same standards as all the rest of the countries in the European context.”
