Now that we have passed through the Passover Seder festivities with families and friends, I wonder how many of you paused to remember the horrendous axe murder that occurred on April 2nd.Β Although my Seder was joyful, I couldn’t stop imagining the gloominess surrounding the families of the 13 year old boy who was axed to death by one of the Palestinian terrorists and the wounding of the 7 year old. It goes beyond my imagination to make sense of the type of cruel mentality capable of doing such a horrendous and shocking act to anyone, especially children. But those who commit these atrocities in Israel are not criminally insane; they are indoctrinated since childhood by their leaders and Imams to kill Jews wherever they are found.
What is indeed most disturbing is that the perpetrator just freely walked unquestioned, unstopped, through the “settlement” of Bat Ayin which does not have a perimeter fence. The government of Israel under Ehud Olmert and in particular Defense Minister Ehud Barak are to be blamed since they had obeyed the plan that the former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice had concocted with the international community to remove roadblocks so as to facilitate greater freedom ofΒ movement to Palestinian terrorists.Β Obviously, if the settlement of Bat Ayin had a fence or a security roadblock this diabolical murder would not have happened. I wonder, how can the leaders of the Israel government who walk around surrounded by at least 20 bodyguards, have the audacity to remove security and protection to families and children living in Israel?
Doubly most disturbing is that an hour after this diabolical axe murder, the terrorist leader of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, Fatah’s declared military wing, and Fatah Al Aqsa Brigades gunmen the ones called “moderate” by the free world and with whom we are supposed to extirpate land from Β Israel including the Holiest of sites, claimed responsibility. But wait, when Mahmud Abbas, aka, Abu Mazen, was interviewed by the media to comment, he refused to condemn this attack! What a moderate!
So, you, leaders of the Free World, who claim to uphold the sanctity of life, dignity and human rights values: would you cede any of your precious land and make peace with those who desire to kill your children, whose covenant’s goal is to destroy your country, whose culture is that of death and martyrdom, who glorify terrorists, celebrate suicide bombers and who indoctrinate their children to be child combatants and child Shahids? My answer is that you wouldn’t dream or even think of committing your country to such a suicidal path to appease anyone. However, we are talking about Israel, a Jewish country, and what you are pressuring Israel to do is a crime against humanity and the antithesis of morality just to placate and kowtow to the Arab world.
Countless times has Israel bent forward and backwards to make peace with the “Palestinians” to no avail because their profound wish is not to live in peace with their neighbors, but to throw them into the sea. Former Prime Minister Golda Meir’s dictum: “there will be peace when the Arabs love their children more than they hate Israel,” still holds today.
