Terror Murders Near Jerusalem

 

The scene was a quiet, open, peaceful community just outside Jerusalem. At least until yesterday morning when, while opening the workers’ entrance to allow the Palestinian workers to enter as they have done every morning, a terrorist opened fire killing three security personnel and severely injuring a third. The terrorist initially “aroused the suspicion” of the guards on scene. They called for him to stop and he drew the weapon, a pistol, from his shirt and began shooting. The murdered were two private security guards and a Border Police Officer, all in their twenties. The injured person suffered injuries to his stomach and chest, as had those who were murdered, and was taken to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem, where he was taken immediately into surgery. The terrorist held a legal work permit, something considered a privilege, was also killed in the ensuing exchange of gunfire.

The odds are that you never heard a single mention of this attack on your newscasts unless you happen to live in Israel, and even then, it was covered in the recent aftermath and the ensuing twenty-four hours. The reason is that for much of the world terrorism in Israel, and particularly in and around Jerusalem, is considered old news and repeats of what are considered an old subject are not given much notice. Newscasts around the world might carry one out of every ten or even twenty such events, and then only if there is something of note making it different. Perhaps an entire family was murdered while having a Sabbath dinner on a Friday night celebrating the birth of a grandchild, as with the Salomon family. The lack of frequency of terrorist attacks reported unfortunately does not equal a lack of frequency of terrorist attacks.

The same is becoming true of terrorist violence in Europe, especially as the authorities are doing everything in their power to hide crimes committed by the very same “refugees” they are welcoming into their countries. This has been especially true when one considers the lack of reporting of the criminal increases in sexual crimes, robberies and numerous other criminal activities. Such crimes went hidden until they finally came to light in Manchester, England. Then there was the massive increase of sexual assaults and other crimes carried out on New Year’s Eve in the German city of Cologne. These were simply a few of the more extreme cases, but they are far from the only cases of criminal cases which could be termed as terrorism which escaped the net of media coverage.

 

This has become a tired story which the media believes is too tedious and oppressive to cover. They believe that people would prefer to simply ignore terrorism or criminal activity related to immigration, especially when it pertains to the invited “refugees” from Syria, Afghanistan, Libya, Somalia and the plethora of other MENA nations. These criminal actions run counter to the political presentation which the political elites, the mainstream media, entertainment elites and the numerous vested interests in the continued influx of immigrants with no limitations. The Obama years also trained the media and the public to ignore anything related to terrorism as actually completely unfounded because they succeeded in passing actual terrorist attacks like Ft. Hood or the Hyper Cachet market which was part of the Charlie Hebdo attacks into simple descriptions such as workplace violence, the given and persistent explanation for the Ft. Hood terror attack, or a random attack at a market, ignoring the fact that was a targeted attack on a kosher Jewish Market on Shabbat Eve. With taking of actual terror attacks such as these and turning them into minor criminal acts which required no additional attention, concern or alarm, we belittle terror into a simple criminal act with no political or social implications.

 

Whether this pretense that there is no terrorism of consequence continues may change with the new administration in the United States remains to be seen. But it should expect no assistance in any effort from Germany, as their reelection of Chancellor Angela Merkel to office with a compliant parliament will mean the continuing of her open door policies pretending there is nothing wrong and these “refugees” are the future in Germany. The remainder of Europe, especially Western Europe (Old Europe), their position going forward will remain to be seen, as they will be determined by elections over the next few years. France chose a center left government while the British appear determined to retain Brexit style politicians preserving their leaving the European Union. Perhaps it is we here at BTC who are too sensitive to terrorism and we need to simply accept that such attacks are simply going to be part of life for the foreseeable future. We would hope not for all our sakes, but perhaps that too remains to be decided as things proceed.

 

What would be promising would be the realization that there is a conflict in progress for the control of the future. There are those who desire bringing an end to Western Culture and an end to Judeo-Christian civilization. This has been one of our concerns here at BTC but apparently of little concern in far too many institutions. The current curriculum in the liberal arts colleges does not appear to hold any great affection for either Western Culture or Judeo-Christian civilization. Actually, they appear to be just as hostile as the most leftist, anti-Western, anti-Christian and vehemently anti-conservative efforts which appear to have decided that violence is an acceptable weapon to use when opposing everything with which they disagree. This has become apparent on far too many colleges where riots have broken out to prevent conservative speakers from delivering even a speech as innocuous as a commencement address. Should the current trends continue it would mean that generations to come would live in a very different world where freedom may become something dictated and limited to only those who march according to the dictates of the selected leadership and any divergence will be severely punished providing anyone so accused survives their likely lynching.
