All dead. All murdered in a Jerusalem yeshiva on March 6th.
A thousand years before the birth of Mohammad there was a Jerusalem and a Jewish homeland, but Islam demands and Islam celebrates the death of Jews and all other non-believers, including its own apostates.
The only alternative is to be a “dhimmi”, a second-rate citizen subject to the abuses of arrogant Muslims.
They celebrated the murders in Gaza by, of course, shooting off guns.
Gaza, which the Israelis abandoned to the Palestinians in the hope they might take the land and make a nation for themselves. On one side, the Egyptians built a wall to keep the Palestinians out. On the other side, the Israelis built a wall to keep the Palestinians in.
That’s what you do with a deranged and homicidal population.
Hamas took credit for the murders and then retracted it. Hamas or Hezbollah, it doesn’t matter. They are both Palestinian. Fatah, also Palestinian, grown fat stealing the aid sent by the EU and even the U.S. is no longer a factor despite the pretence of securing “peace” with or through them.
What can be said of a people who celebrate the murder of children?
What can be said of a people who send their own children to die as suicide bombers?
How can such people lay claim to anything the world recognizes as moral behavior?
Islam is a belief devoted only to death; a Paradise for its endless martyrs, and a Hell for Muslims who do not totally surrender their lives to it and, of course, for the unbelievers.
What did those Jewish youth do to justify their murder? Nothing. They were killed for the same reason Jews were slaughtered in the millions in my own lifetime—for the crime of being Jewish.
People say that the problems in the Middle East would go away if there was no Israel, but where were the survivors of the Nazi death camps to go? Where were the Russian “Refuzniks” to find sanctuary?
If other peoples can have a homeland, why must Jews alone be denied theirs?
The problems of the Middle East are the problems anyone in any previous century, coming in contact with Muslims, would have easily described, and which England and Europe in this century are encountering.
The problem is Islam, was Islam, will be Islam.
Let us no longer hear talk of a “peace process” between Israel and its enemies.
The Palestinian cancer, alive and well in Lebanon, the West Bank, and Gaza, to name just a few places it infects, must either burn itself out or be destroyed for the threat it is.
