Four innocent Jewish men gunned down. A Jewish young woman, waiting for a ride, stabbed to death. A beautiful two-year-old girl critically injured by rock-wielding assailants, dead two years later.
These events did not occur in France. They did not occur in Scandinavia, the UK or Belgium.
They happened in Israel.
Yet, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would have you think that the calculus is black and white: Jews in Europe are in mortal danger; Jews in Israel are perfectly safe.
If only it were that simple.
