Victims of Palestinian Violence and Terrorism Empty The Other Tsunami by Dennis Prager

Post by Zoya on Sat Mar 19, 2011 2:43 am

The Other Tsunami By Dennis Prager
March 15, 2011

It is very difficult to hate babies.

It takes a special person.

As morally wrong as it is to murder innocent adults, mankind seems to have a built-in revulsion against killing babies. If a baby does not evoke any tenderness, if a baby is regarded as worthy of being deliberately hurt or murdered, we know that we have encountered a degree of evil that few humans -- even among murderers -- can relate to.

That is why what Palestinian terrorists did to a Jewish family on the West Bank this past weekend deserves far more attention than it received.

Normally, Palestinian atrocities get little attention -- certainly far less attention than Israeli apartment-building on the West Bank receives. But this particular atrocity got even less attention than usual because the world was focused on the terrible tsunami that hit Japan.

On Friday night, Palestinian terrorists slipped into a Jewish settlement, entered a home and stabbed the father, the mother and three of their children to death: an 11-year-old, a 4-year-old, and a three-month-old baby.

In order to understand what those actions mean, a seemingly separate incident needs to be recalled: the prolonged sexual attack by up to 200 Egyptian men on Lara Logan, chief foreign affairs correspondent for CBS News, in Tahrir Square, Cairo a few weeks ago. It was reported that after stripping her naked and then molesting and beating her, the men kept shouting, "Jew, Jew!"

The two incidents tell the same tale. In much of the Arab Muslim and some of the non-Arab Muslim world today (such as Iran), "Jew" is not a person. "Jew" is not even merely the enemy. In fact, there is no parallel on Earth to what "Jew" means to a hundred million, perhaps hundreds of millions of Muslims.

Think of any conflict in the world -- Pakistan-India, China-Tibet, North Korea-South Korea, Tamil-Sinhalese. There are some deep hatreds there, and atrocities have been committed on one or both sides of those conflicts. But in none of those conflicts nor anywhere else is there something equivalent to what "Jew" means to millions of Muslims.

There really is only one historical parallel, and it, too, involved the word "Jew." The Nazis also succeeded in fully dehumanizing the word "Jew." Thus, for Nazism, it was as important (if not more so) to murder Jewish babies and children -- often through as cruel a means as possible (being burned alive, buried alive or thrown up in the air and impaled on bayonets) -- as it was to murder Jewish adults.

The human being does not have to learn to hate. It seems to come pretty naturally. Nor does the human being have to learn to murder, steal or rape. These, too, seem to be in the natural human repertoire of evils.

But the human being does have to learn to hate children and babies, and to regard the torture and murder of them as morally desirable acts. It takes years of work to undo normal protective human attitudes toward children.

That is precisely what the Nazis did and what significant parts of the Muslim world have done to the word "Jew." To them, the Jew is not just sub-human; the Jew -- and his or her children -- is sub-animal.

Palestinian and other Muslim spokesmen and their supporters on the left argue that this unique hatred is the fruit of Israeli policies, not decades of Nazi-like Jew-hatred saturating Islamic education, television, radio and the mosque. But for this to be true, unique hatred would have to be matched by unique evil on the Israelis' part.

Yet, among the injustices of the world, what the Israelis have done to the Palestinians would not even register on a moral Richter scale. The creation of Israel engendered about 750,000 Palestinian refugees (and an equal number of Jewish refugees from Arab countries) and the death of perhaps 10 thousand Palestinian Arabs. And all of that came about solely because Arab armies invaded Israel in order to destroy it at birth. Yet, when Pakistan was yanked from India and established as a Muslim state at the very same time Israel was established, that act engendered 12.5 million Muslim refugees and about a million dead
Muslims (and similar numbers of Hindu refugees and deaths). Why then doesn't "Hindu" equal "Jew" in the Muslim lexicon of hate?

Here are some answers in brief:

First, many groups have been hated, but none have been hated as deeply as the Jews.

Second, Jew-hatred is often exterminationist, which is why Jew-hatred has little in common with ethnic bigotry, religious intolerance or even racism. Rarely, if ever, do any of them seek the extermination of the disliked or hated group.

Third, exterminationist Jew-haters are particularly dangerous people. Non-Jews who do not recognize Jew-hatred as the moral cancer it is are fools. Nazism was born in Jew-hatred and led to the death of more than 40 million non-Jews. Islamic terror started against Israeli Jews but has spread around the world. More fellow Muslims have now been murdered by Islamic terror than Jews have.

That is why the tsunami the world ignored this weekend -- the Palestinian-Arab-Muslim flood of Jew-hatred -- is the one that will prove far more dangerous to it than the Japanese one it understandably focused on.

Victims of Palestinian Violence and Terrorism Empty Hamas Lies: Killing Kids Not Our Thing

Post by Zoya on Sat Mar 19, 2011 3:05 am

March 14 -- In the wake of the murders of five members of the Fogel family, including a toddler and an infant, Hamas announced:

Palestinian National Movement Hamas official Ezzat Al-Rashak said that the movement is not responsible for the murder of the five family members from the Itamar settlement.

Al-Rashak confirmed that harming children is not part of Hamas' policy, nor is it the policy of the resistance factions.

He also confirmed that the possibility that the incident was carried out by settlers for criminal motives should not be ruled out.

This is not the first time that Hamas has denied its practice of targeting children. Following the 2004 terrorist attack against Russian schoolchildren, a Hamas official similarly denied that the terror group targets children. As CAMERA noted at the time, the Associated Press reported:

The Palestinian militant group Hamas contends its policy is not to target children, although it justifies attacks on civilians to avenge Israeli army attacks on ordinary citizens.

“We are freedom fighters, not gangs,” a senior Hamas official in Gaza told the AP. “Women and children are not a target for Hamas. They have never been a target and they will never be our main target despite the daily killing of our women and children by Israel in cold blood.”

Abu Mahmoud, a spokesman for the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades in the West Bank, said the group was “shocked by what we see on television” about the Russian school standoff.

“We would never agree to such a thing,” he said. “We never did such a thing and never would. When there is an explosion and children are killed, we are sorry for this because this was a mistake, not on purpose.”

Back in 2004, CAMERA's Lee Green compiled the following list of attacks in which Hamas and other "resistance factions" (ie, terror groups) clearly targeted children. The children were not accidental victims, but were intentionally shot or bombed. For example:

  • March 5, 2003 — Palestinian terrorists chose to bomb Bus 37 in Haifa shortly after school let out. The bus is on a school route and 9 schoolchildren were among the 17 killed in that attack. Dozens of children were wounded.

  • Dec. 3, 2003 — Palestinian terrorists planned to blow up schoolchildren at the Ort Alon High School in Yokneam, the sister city of St. Louis. Thankfully, due to Israeli intelligence sources and the security fence, the Israelis were able to catch the bombers before they reached the school.

  • May 2, 2004 — Terrorists ambushed the car of Tali Hatuel, who was 9 months pregnant, and shot her and her four young daughters, aged 2, 7, 9 and 11. It was daylight and the terrorists obviously knew they were killing four small children because they shot them all at point blank range.

Suicide terrorists see exactly who they are going to kill before they detonate themselves. If they didn't want to kill children, they could walk out of their chosen restaurants, buses and teen discos, and choose a different target when they saw that many children were present.

  • June 1, 2001 — a Palestinian terrorist chose to detonate himself among a long line of teenagers , their youth clearly visible to him, at the Dolphinarium disco in Tel Aviv. 11 teenagers under the age of 18 were among the dead.

  • Mar 2, 2002 —Outside of a Jerusalem synagogue, a terrorist detonated a bomb next to a group of mainly women standing outside with their young children, several in baby carriages . The victims: Shlomo Nehmad (40), his wife Gafnit (32), and their daughters Shiraz (7) and Liran (3); Avraham Eliahu Nehmad, (7), Shaul Nehmad (15); Lidor Ilan (12) and his sister Oriah (18 months); Tzofia Ya'arit Eliyahu (23) and her son Ya'akov Avraham (seven months); and Avi Hazan, (37). The Fatah Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade took responsibility for the attack.

  • Aug 19, 2003 — Twenty-three people were killed, including seven children when a Palestinian suicide bomber detonated himself on a No. 2 Egged bus in Jerusalem's Shmuel Hanavi neighborhood. The bus was filled with children. Hamas claimed responsibility for the attack. The child victims: Shmuel Taubenfeld, 3 months, of New Square, New York; Shmuel Zargari, 11 months; Tehilla Nathanson, 3; Issachar Reinitz, 9; Avraham Bar-Or, 12; Binyamin Bergman, 15; Elisheva Meshulami, 16.

  • Nov. 20, 2000 — terrorists attacked a bus carrying children from Kfar Darom to school in Gush Katif. Five children were injured, many of whom had limbs blown off.

  • Mar 26, 2001 — a Palestinian sniper took aim at 10 month old Shalhevet Pass, who was sitting in her stroller. She was fatally shot in the head. This was hardly an “accident.” She was the target, even though her father was standing right beside her.

  • Nov. 10, 2002 — Revital Ohayon, 34, and her two sons, Matan, 5, and Noam, 4, were shot to death by an Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade terrorist who broke into their home at Kibbutz Metzer.

  • May 9, 2001 — Yossi Ish-Ran, 14, and Kobi Mandell, 14 , both of Tekoa, were savagely beaten to death with stones in a cave about 200 meters from the small community south of Jerusalem where they lived.

Unfortunately, since 2004, many more names have joined this horrific list.

  • Apr 2, 2009 - Shlomo Nativ, 13, was killed by an axe-wielding terrorist in his community of Bat Ayin in Gush Etzion.

  • Mar 6, 2008 - Eight students of the Mercaz Harav Yeshiva in Jerusalem were killed when a terrorist armed with a Kalashnikov assault rifle infiltrated the yeshiva and opened fire in the library where about 80 people were gathered, mostly teenagers. Eleven others were wounded, three critically. Among the victims were Segev Peniel Avihail, 15, of Neve Daniel; Neria Cohen, 15, of Jerusalem; Yonatan Yitzhak Eldar, 16, of Shilo; Yohai Lifshitz, 17, of Jerusalem; and Avraham David Moses, 16, of Efrat.

  • March 30, 2006 - Shaked Lasker, 16, of Kedumim was killed when a suicide bomber hitchhiker disguised as an ultra-Orthodox yeshiva student detonated his explosive device in a private vehicle near the entrance to Kedumim.

  • Oct. 16, 2005 - Oz Ben-Meir, 15, of Maon were killed and three were wounded when Palestinians opened fire at the Gush Etzion junction south of Jerusalem. Another teenager was shot and seriously wounded near Eli, in Samaria. The Fatah Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades claimed responsibility for both attacks.

Additional Palestinian Denials

There were plenty more influential Palestinians suffering from denial following the murder of the Fogel family, and they weren't only from Hamas. For instance, writing in his regular column, in the Palestinian Authority-controlled newspaper Al Hayat Al-Jadida, Adli Sadek stated:

It bears repeating that the murder of children, if carried out by Palestinian hands, must not be part of the national struggle, which has generally sought . . . to engage with the soldiers of the occupation and not hurt Israeli children. (Quoted in Ha'aretz)

Ha'aretz also reported:

Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki, however, was one of a number of senior PA officials who continued to imply that the Fogels were not murdered for nationalist reasons. "People and an infant were butchered in a way no Palestinian has ever done. . . raising questions about Israel's rush to accuse the Palestinians," he said. (ibid)

Denials like these, completely disconnected from reality and the historical record, give a shot of adrenaline to the anti-Israel conspiracy types, lurking in talkback threads, and absurdly blaming the Mossad for the massacre of a Jewish family. Take, for example, "ausjustice," who posts his vitriol on the Los Angeles Times at 12:29 AM today:

My latest information is that the settler family murders were carried out under the direction of a Shin Bet unit and authorised from the highest level. It was considered acceptable to "sacrifice" the family for the purposes of raising Israeli anger against Palestinians, attracting international sympathy for Israel, strengthening pressure on the PA and justifying the continued un-official policy of settlement expansion.

Israeli support for the hardline right wing policies has been fading and opposition against extremist settlers increasing in recent months threatening the government of BN and increasing international calls for a resolution of borders with an increasing number of countries recognising a Palestinian state outside the '67 borders.

There is no doubt who is to gain from these murders. A few will question the high probability this attack originated from their own government departments. It has been common practice for Mossad to arrange "false fleg" operations dating back to terrorist bombings of British and American interests prior to 1948, their bombing Synagogues in Iraq to hasten the flow of migrants to the new state, while laying blame on Arabs.

Undoubtedly a few Palestinians have already been ear marked to accept the blame and will confess under torture.

The incitement originating from Hamas and Palestinian Authority officials echoes through the cesspools of the American talkbacks, laying the groundwork for yet another attack against innocent civilians.

March 15 Update: Palestinian Denials Reach New Nadir, Blame Tai Workers

The Jerusalem Post and Ha'aretz report today that a number of Web sites linked to the Palestinian Authority are blaming the Fogel's murders on a Tai worker. (See, for example, the Palestinian Ma'an News Agency.) Avi Issacharoff and Amos Harel commendably point out the falsity of Palestinian Foreign Minister Riyad al-Malki's claim that Palestinians don't engage is such brutal violence:

At this point, though, all the signs indicate the Itamar massacre was a terror attack. Malki seems to have forgotten the dozens of attacks carried out by Palestinian terrorists - intent on killing children, women and old people. In November 2002, Sirhan Sirhan entered a house in Kibbutz Metzer and murdered a mother and her two children, aged 4 and 5, after killing another man and woman. This is just one example of several.
