The media coverage has been very interesting in a peculiar and unnerving manner since the presence of ISIS exploded out of Syria onto the front pages and lead stories on every media form informing of the current events and especially the atrocities perpetrated almost daily under presumably false pretense in the name of Islam. I honestly believe and know that there are a great majority of Muslims who are just as unsettled and repulsed by the actions and displays of executions performed and proudly presented by ISIS. We saw two proud and upstanding Muslims who as followers of Islam worked and did all they were able, one giving his life, to protect and save lives in the three days of horrors in Paris during the Charlie Hebdo terror slaughters just last month. Officer Ahmed Merabet, a Muslim police officer who arrived to the scene and attempted to stop further mayhem, paid for his efforts with his life. Badly injured from shots taken in an initial exchange of fire, Officer Ahmed Merabet raised his empty hands signaling that he was unarmed and posed no threat to their escape yet was mercilessly shot one last time directly to the head by one of the brothers, whose names we will not honor with mention, went out of his way to commit the execution. Additionally, Lassana Bathily represented the other face of Islam when he harbored many of the patrons in Hyper Cacher kosher market sheltering them inside the freezer after raising the temperature and then facilitated police efforts by giving them vital information which assisted the authorities in timing and executing their final assault ending that stand-off. The complete story as we covered can be read at “Two Faces of Islam in Charlie Hebdo Attacks.” The problem is that news always gives a jaundiced view on every facet of society as their product demands that they cover the worst of human misery or violence as if they covered the news by reporting that at Main Street and Third Avenue there were no accidents and the traffic light functioned perfectly; who would read or watch such coverage.

 

Yet the coverage given by much of the mainstream media, especially such as the BBC (British Broadcasting Company), AFP (Agency France Press), FOX, CNN (Cable News Network) and too many others, has given titles exclaiming horrific headlines using expletives expressing their revulsion of the scenes they are either about to broadcast or describe in every minute and despicable detail of the latest disgusting deeds of ISIS or the further devastation across Syria. The stories are enough to turn even the strongest of stomachs to churning with uneasy nausea from images which the steeliest of gazes must turn aside and the coverage informs that ISIS affronts deserve societal sanction and the use of military force to prevent their spreading their horror any further and subjugating even more people to such horrors and injustices. Yet many of these very same newscasts will report on the importance of allowing the Palestinian Authority to found their own nation in the “West Bank” and Gaza, and note their use of the Jordanian invented terminology for the expressed purpose of removing any Jewish historic identity to the actual names, Judea and Samaria, and make stealing the historic heartlands of the ancient Hebrew homelands to form a terror state which subjects their own people and any Israelis they are able to victimize using horrors equal in revulsion and barbarity as ISIS has used but somehow the mainstream news manages to turn their heads and ignore what occurs right before their cameras and the views of their reporters and camera crews. For the doubters, perhaps a few examples from the recent past which have largely been ignored as such does not fit the story of inhuman denials of decency by Israel and the righteous longing of the Palestinian Arabs for a state in their ancient lands dating back years uncountable, largely because there never has been such an Arab state ever in these lands thus no such days exist, let alone years.

 

The current horrific murder by ISIS was the absolutely horrific burning to death the Jordanian Pilot, who was a prisoner of war who should have been treated with certain assurances and decencies as dictated by the Geneva Convention, who was placed in an iron cage in gasoline soaked orange jumpsuit above gasoline soaked sands with a stream of gasoline soaked sand tailing to two men who lighted the ditch which resulted in the scene which most of us have chosen not to watch for we are of sensitivities to which we defer when possible and refuse to view such inhumanity of those who have regressed to such depravities. The news story for the Jordanian pilot’s fate has been given wall to wall coverage, as it deserves. A story just as horrific was all but ignored by the international news services and never got a first play in most markets, let alone second coverage or similar emphasis as the Jordanian pilot’s story. I am speaking of Ayala Shapira and her father, Avner Shapira, who were almost burned to death and young Ayala remains in the hospital, an eleven year old girl who had been full of life and now has recently been removed from a ventilator and is able to breath on her own but still must use nonverbal communication when communicating with her parents. Ayala was caught in the car where an Arab in Judea or Samaria violently threw a Molotov cocktail through the vehicle window of the family vehicle which exploded in her lap covering her entire body in flames trapping her in the vehicle until her father grasped her free of the car and extinguished the flames saving her life but leaving her with burns over more than three-quarters of her body and nearly causing her death. She is facing a future which will include who knows how many operations to reconstruct her body and attempt to rehabilitate her face returning her at least to a resemblance of her former soft and gentle features. In the more immediate future she will not be attending school and missing being with her friends or any other vestige of a normal life of such a young girl. Her horrors and the violent savagery of her attack equaled that of the Jordanian pilot with one major difference; Ayala was simply driving home with her father and was not operating a fighter-bomber jet aircraft in a war zone when she was set on fire. We covered her tragic story in the editorial named, “May These be the Last Victims of this and All Intifada.”

 

Those of us who have followed the atrocities committed by ISIS have read of their throwing homosexuals from rooftops simply for their sexual preferences. Certainly no such atrocities have been committed by any other entities. Well, not so much actually. After Hamas in Gaza fought the fifty day war with Israel this past summer they performed some cleansing where they took the liberty of removing some of the leadership from Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah Party. The preferred means of removing these undesirable political individuals are by two methods largely, shooting them as they kneeled before their executioner who would walk down a line of fellow Palestinian Arabs from a different political party shooting each in the back of their heads or by taking them to the tops of buildings and tossing them off. The slaughter in Gaza was not given lengthy coverage as such was not a story which fit any narrative or support any government or media interests thus was relegated to non-news items. We have heard about the horrific murders of women in Pakistan, Afghanistan and other nations in the Middle East yet seldom are those same honor killings committed by Palestinian Arabs given similar coverage as the Palestinians are a protected class of people who must not be made to appear barbaric or overtly violent in any way as to relate their actual actions would turn Israeli actions from highly suspect to completely understandable. There has been coverage of stonings across the Middle East where people have been stoned to death for heresy, converting to Christianity from Islam, adultery or various other crimes according to Sharia. The attempted stoning by Palestinian Arabs of vehicles with Israeli license plates assuming they are driven and occupied by Jews are derived from similar motivations, the killing of those from outside Islam viewed to be threats to the supremacy of Islam and not bowed to its rule. Some of these ‘stones’ are the size of cinderblocks capable of smashing through windshields and causing the cars to be crashed and too often resulting in death or severe injuries requiring prolonged hospitalization. In a story we looked back at some of the stoning assaults including the pictures of Asher Palmer and his infant son Yonatan who were victims of just such an assault as they drove by one of these ambushes as well as a picture of United States Representative Eliot Engel and Representative Jerrold Nadler with Representative Nadler holding the rock which was hurled onto them from an overarching cliff overlooking the Mount of Olives Cemetery as they were ascending to view certain graves and pay respects honoring them which can be read in an article titled “Boko Haram Erases Nigerian City of Baga from the Map.” I ask now, exactly what is the difference between the actions and violence committed by ISIS and committed by Hamas, the Palestinian Authority and the other Arab terror groups operating in Gaza, Judea and Samaria and why Israel must stand down while much of the world is bombing their terror enemies.
