Berlin Street Assault on Kippah Wearing Teen Sign of Epidemic Anti-Semitism

 

Below we will include a video of a Kippah wearing teen taken by the victim, which explains the shaky and disjunctive shots, being assaulted and whipped with a belt by another youth. We will begin with an interview taken in Hebrew by The Times of Israel. The Jewish Kippah wearing youth was quoted telling of the events, “It happened right here, next to my home, when I was on my way to the train station with my friend. The truth is, I’m surprised something like this happened to me. I’m still in shock. We came out of our home, my friend and I, wearing our Kippahs, and walked down the street. We weren’t talking with anyone else. Three people came from over there” (points down the street from where attacker came) “and started cursing us from over there. We didn’t talk to anyone, didn’t answer them. So when they kept cursing us, my friend asked them to stop cursing, and that got them angry. So one of them ran at me. I immediately felt it was important to film, because I didn’t think we could catch him before police arrived. I wanted to give police something to go on.”

 

 

Levi Salomon, spokesman from Jewish Forum for Democracy and Against Antisemitism stated, “This shows that Jewish people are not safe here either.” Well, if by here he means throughout Europe and not just Berlin, then we are forced by events to agree. This is not reserved just for Europe as similar reports have come from South Africa, Australia and even North America. Even some of the most innocuous of protests where one would expect inclusion, the Women’s March after the Inauguration of President Trump a year ago January anti-Semitism reared its head at numerous locations across the nation. The most obvious was the rejection of a group of women who supported everything the march represented but their being Zionists lead to their being refused and rejected by the organizers of the Women’s March. There are dozens of stories such as Can You Be a Zionist Feminist? Linda Sarsour Says No and By Rejecting Jews, Intersectionality Betrays Itself plus ADL CEO: Boycott of Scarlett Johansson’s Women’s March Speech was “Contemptible” as well as I’m Glad the Dyke March Banned Jewish Stars additionally here in Three asked to leave Chicago LGBT march over ‘triggering’ Star of David flags (see picture below) and lastly also here in Everything You Need to Know About Anti-Semitism in the Women’s March Movement. Here are examples of the people who claim that they are for everyone’s freedom, well, I guess we need to add as long as they hate Israel, anything less makes one instantly into some kind of monster to be shunned and refused even the smallest sympathy or respect normally offered a human-being. We are talking about people on the all loving, all hugging leftern-most left of the far left wing, the ones who define the feminist wing of the Democrat and other leftist Parties and the ones who define who is to be seen and treated as a rightful female personage. Apparently Jews or anyone who has a love of Israel, any Zionist inclinations, are less than human and are likely just what Linda Sarsour was raised to believe from the Quran, Zionists are the apes and pigs as explained by MEMRI and further it is explained that the Jews are said to be turned into apes and swine for generally disbelieving in Allah’s revelations. Ms. Sarsour has not travelled far from the teaching from her youth as she refuses to permit Jews because they support the Jewish State and goes further to blame Israel for the sins of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas who are the actual oppressors of the Palestinians she claims reside in Israel. The Palestinian Arabs are separate from the Israeli Arabs and live under self-rule. Israeli Arabs have full and equal rights with Israeli Jews as do Israelis of every religion from Baha’i to Buddhist to Christian and every other religion including Islam in all its variants, something not even true in the vast majority of Arab states where they prefer one version of Islam over the others.

The serious problem is the rapidly rising anti-Semitism which is mostly occurring under the media radar often going unreported by the national media and only found in local print and radio and television news. Synagogues across the United States and especially Europe and South Africa have security around their grounds most often armed whenever they are expecting a larger observance such as in the High Holidays, for Bar Mitzvahs of large families and every event where the numbers of people is substantial. In France, the government has placed the military guarding Synagogues and Jewish schools round the clock seven days a week. Germany has admitted they are unable to provide the coverage which would be necessary to provide for the safekeeping of Jewish schools and synagogues. French new President Macon also promises to continue armed guards at Synagogues and Jewish schools as reported in this article, “ France’s Macron vows to fight anti-Semitism online and off.” In neighboring Germany we read, “Police must guard every synagogue in Germany, says Merkel, which shows the seriousness of anti-Semitism there. Then we come to Sweden where even the New York Times is awake to the problem covered in their article, “The Uncomfortable Truth About Swedish Anti-Semitism.” The question which will be coming down the pike and soon require addressing is how can the United States protest every Jewish school and Synagogue should things start to approach the same levels of anti-Semitism as is being experience across much of Europe and other areas around the globe. Such a need would be a formidable challenge logistically and financially. This becoming necessary in the United States and Canada would bring on challenges beyond imagination as these two nations have more Jewish citizens than Europe by multiple of three-plus.

 

Anti-Semitism is rising around the globe while Israel continues to face challenges to her existence beyond anything faced before. Recently, Iranian Army Commander Brigadier General Kiumars Heidari has warned, Iranian Armed Forces “are much more powerful than before” and that “the date has been set” for Israel’s destruction, as he spoke in Tehran ahead of Iran’s Army Day. Iran has further claimed that Israel is now in direct confrontations with the Islamic Republic of Iran. This was over the Israeli strike against the control center which controlled the explosive armed Iranian drone was intercepted shortly after it entered Israeli airspace obviously on a mission to destroy targets in Israel. Iranian forces have recently been gathered closer than previous on the Israeli Golan Heights on the northeastern border with Syria. Add on the Gaza rioting and threats to breach the border as threatened by Hamas leader Sinwar that, “‘We Will Tear Israelis’ Hearts Out.” (see video below) Sinwar further threatened that the rioters, “eat the livers of those besieging (Gaza),” using an Arabic idiom that means to take revenge on someone. He has also explained about the violence that, “The March of Return will continue. It will not stop until we remove this transient border (the Gaza-Israel border).” Another of his threats is that, “March of Return affirms that our people can’t give up one inch of the land of Palestine. The protests will continue until the Palestinians return to the lands they were expelled from 70 years ago.” His claim here is the erasure of Israel completely followed by their cleansing the Jews from the population just as the Hamas Charter states along with their intent to murder every Jew on the planet.

These riots and rushes at the border fence with attempts to cut and breach the border fence are predicted to last six weeks in total and climax around the 11th to the 15th of May coinciding with the announcement of the moving of the United States embassy to Jerusalem (see above map and insert). Part of the aim is to influence the decision by President Trump and if Hamas, Islamic Jihad and friends in terror manage to cause sufficient violence and are able to cross the border marauding through southern Israel, there is their hope that this might deter the announcement. Hamas and friends are aware that they have numerous allies who will pressure President Trump from within the State Department and the Middle East departments which are peopled by Arabs and not that many Jews, like none. The rioting and the anti-Semitism in the Middle East and across North Africa is simply the level of hate which areas within Europe are approaching. There are those predicting that there may come a time where Jews will only be accepted residing in Israel and any Jews residing outside of Israel will face levels of anti-Semitism well over the top. Additionally, the nations of the United Nations will almost to an entirety will have turned on Israel and possibly have removed Israel from her United Nations membership and revoked the recognition of Israel claiming that they have dissolved the nation of Israel. Fortunately, the world will have sufficient other problems that the world will not be placing their armies on the Israeli border threatening her destruction. Eventually, this unbridled hatred will wane and Israel will gain acceptance. This will come about due to some simply facts. One is that despite how she is treated by the numerous national governments, Israel is often still the first to have people on the ground giving the necessary aid to people after a natural disaster. Israel is a nation that produces great advances in virtually every area from computers to agriculture to physics to medicine on and on. Israel has given the world everything from the technology for cell phones to instant messaging to drip irrigation to the cherry tomato and even more here and here. Israel will win the minds and later their hearts and it will become have relations with Israel or be left behind. Well, that is our hope at least.

How Will the Arab-Israeli Conflict Finally End?

 

There has never been a conflict which ended while both parties were still capable of continuing the fight, neither side has achieved their ultimate goal and neither side has decided the fight is no longer viable militarily, monetarily, politically or publically supported. The Arab-Israeli conflict will not be any different. There will not be any peace agreement no matter the publicity about how it solves the differences in a means which is amicable for both sides. The reason for this comes down to the basic and mutually opposed, antithetical and the sides are inimical. The root of the problem is not territorial which has been how all attempts have been based for settling the differences. The differences are religious as well as political and social. The Arab side is based partially on the Quran and further on their self-conceived belief that they are undefeatable. The Israeli side is based on the Biblical promise that there would come a time when the Jewish People would be gathered by Hashem returning to the lands promised to Avraham in Genesis. What the central problem boils down to is the Jews believe that they are to return to their biblical homeland while the Arabs believe that they are superior in all things military and cannot be defeated and thus no lands which they have held be permitted to be occupied by another people. So the Jews have this Zionist belief that their return to Israel is a promise from Hashem and thus cannot be prevented and once returned will last through the coming of the Moshiach while the Arabs believe that the existence of Israel is an affront to them as a people and against the Quranic promise that they will never lose lands once they have implanted Islam on that land. The simplest explanation is the Jews believe in Israel as permanent and the Arabs believe Israel must be destroyed and obviously, these are incompatible and mutually opposed.

 

What needs to be understood is that these same Arab nations forced out their Jews between 1948 and 1972, most before 1960 (see map below). This is the problem as it exists and will continue to exist until one side proves victorious in their desire and the other side accepts that reality. If the Arabs permit peace with the existence of Israel, then peace is possible. As the Arabs have already made very clear, that will never happen and they will continue to pursue the destruction of Israel and the death of the Jews until the end of time. That brings us to the Arab version of peace where Israel has been exterminated and millions of Jews have fallen before the marauding victorious Arab armies, charred remains of a nuclear holocaust or corralled into camps to be exterminated or converted to Islam. Israel will simply take whatever measures she needs to keep Israelis alive and protected which means that there is no solution to the Arab-Israeli conflict and the world should simply walk away and leave us to one another. Obviously, only one side will get their way when all is said and done. The next question is one which requires some thought and hopefully the world can find an answer. Why is the outcome of this conflict seemingly so important to the world that a nation about the size of the state of New Jersey, a rather small nation as far as square kilometers are concerned, yet Israel is an obsession for the United Nations, European Union, and much of the rest of the world and, lastly, the United States. Does anybody have any ideas as to why this little nation of Israel takes center stage for so much of the world? There is a simple reason which the leaders of the world understand and some are taking what would appear to be a counterintuitive position. According to doctrines written in numerous societies’ compendiums from ancient histories from the beginning of writing including stories even older which were passed down through oral rote memory up to some of the most recent philosophical political theorems have equated the existence of the Jewish People and their final permanence in the Promised Lands with the survival of human civilization. The Jewish Bible told of the eventual return of the Jews to their lands as was also reported in other ancient histories. In the Bible, the return of the Jews would be a permanent return and within a short period of time, all the Jews would return to their promised lands.

Many have claimed that this is impossible as such a complete return would virtually double the population of Israel. Well, if that were true it would be wonderful. First a little bit of Jewish history in relation to their former returns, the exodus from Egypt and their return after Cyrus the great freed the Jewish People from Babylonian occupation and granted them semiautonomous rule. Historians have estimated that somewhere from twenty to thirty-five percent of the Jews left Egypt with the remainder deciding that a life under Egyptian rule to be preferable to the responsibilities of freedom and these Jews disappeared into the stretching of time. The end of the Babylonian Exile resulted in twenty to thirty-five percent of the Jews returning to the Promised Lands to build the Second Temple while the remainder were dazzled by the advance Persian civilization and remained with the Persians and these Jews disappeared into the stretching of time. The current return to the Promised Lands will result in double the response of the former returns from exile thus the Jewish People can expect forty to seventy percent of the total numbers of Jews returning. This would result in a mere twenty percent to a maximum of forty to forty-five percent of the European and American Jews returning to Israel with the rest disappearing into the stretching of time. Disappearing into the stretching of time can also be used to describe what happened to the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel which were the Northern Kingdom of Israel which fell first with the Kingdom of Judea which included the tribes of Judah and Benjamin. Basically we are using that phrase to describe the tribes and peoples of the Jews who disappeared from the known collection of the Jewish People. What has been amazing has been that numbers of these tribes have reemerged and proven their lineage and have been reincorporated into modern Israel. The return of these lost tribes has added much variety of peoples to the population which will serve the Jewish People as we face our future.

 

There are those who continue to claim that soon there will be thousands, possibly tens or hundreds of thousands of Jews returning to Israel very soon placing an economic strain as well as making the housing situation dire until sufficient housing can be built. Many claim that such an influx will require extensive use of lands in the south in the Negev Desert. Currently there are approximately seven and three-quarter million Jews outside of Israel. Almost five and three-quarter million reside in the United States, another half million in France, just over a third million in Canada and just over a quarter million in Britain. Currently the majority of the Jews coming to Israel are from France, the Ukraine and Russia. Looking at this and one will notice that of the three nations from which the majority of Jews making Aliyah, only one is amongst the four largest populations of Jews outside of Israel. The Jewish population in the United States, as well as Canada to some extent, lives in insular communities where much of their neighborhoods all belong the same synagogue or ones of similar denomination, Reform, Conservative and Orthodox. The Orthodox Jews are probably in the most tightly knit communities.

Due to their tightly knit communities and their use of private Yeshiva schooling, their children marry within the community. With Conservative and Reform, and other smaller offshoots of Judaism outside the Orthodox communities, often use the public schools and reside in more mixed neighborhoods, there is a higher rate of their children marrying outside their community. The Conservative and Reform Jews make up the majority of Jews in the United States and with the intermarriage rate reaching almost seventy percent of their children, how much longer will their children and grandchildren continue to follow Judaism? Many of these intermarried children choose to try to raise their children in both Judaism and Christianity. This leads to confusion and due to peer pressure and the basic Christian dominance in American society, the Christianity wins out in most cases and these children are even more likely to intermarry and simply leave the Jewish faith completely. There is something which could alter the adopted non-Jewish identity some of these Jews will adopt. It is the same thing which has occurred to Jews over history many of the times when they become overly assimilated. It happened in Persia with Hamas, it happened in Germany with Hitler and the Nazis and it could even happen in the United States. What happens is the steep rise in anti-Semitism which looks at the grandparents or even further back and decide who is Jewish by this determination. This makes many Jews who had adopted to leave Judaism suddenly returned to their Jewish roots not by any choice of their own.

 

The more recent of the historical examples is the easier one to describe. The German Jews were well accepted in their society and it was in Germany where Reform Judaism was born. This led to a split of the Jewish population with the Reform Jews often being the most assimilated amongst the Jewish population. There were Jews teaching in Universities and schools, as judges and lawyers, as doctors, technicians, physicists, chemists, tailors, actors, directors, writers and every other field of endeavor. They lived in mixed neighborhoods and some lived in neighborhoods apart (mostly the Orthodox). When the Nazis began to rise to power, the most assimilated Jews felt safe as they were proper Germans and Hitler meant those other Jews, the ones who lived apart and dressed in peculiar clothing and practiced a different life than the average German. Many claimed that the statements and anti-Semitism was simply an election ploy to garner votes, not something the government of Germany would ever allow to happen, after all, the Jews were amongst the highest percentage of those who fought for Germany in the Big War (World War I) and were proven real Germans. They were very much as the modern Jews in the United States are today; they denied the rise in anti-Semitism and continued on with their denial right onto the trains to the Concentration Camps.

 

Before we made Aliyah, we belonged to a Conservative Synagogue and these Jews mostly resided in an oval of our city which was anchored by our Conservative Synagogue at one pole and the reform Synagogue at the other pole. One could almost apply the formula for drawing an oval and they would incorporate well over ninety percent of the Jews in our little city. We were outliers as we resided miles outside these neighborhoods where our house was probably the only Jewish house within five to ten miles. Where we did not witness much if any outright anti-Semitism, we did hear some anti-Semitic thoughts which were part of the general beliefs and came out in idle conversations. As the area was predominantly Christian, the majority supported Israel but there were some very wrongheaded beliefs about whom and what Jews were. If you had asked these people if they were anti-Semitic they would deny even the wisp of a possibility, yet there were things they believed about Jews which were less than honest. One example was that Jews were wealthy and stuck to living with their own. Where we could not refute the living amongst their own, we easily refuted the wealth canard, as we would ask that they explain why we lived in their moderately priced neighborhood which was far from upper-middle-class, but was comfortable with older homes and white picket fences everywhere. Could these people be turned against the Jews of America, not all or even many of them but the Nazis were a minority with all the guns.

 

It does not take a majority of the people to turn an entire society into darkness, it just takes an overtly active minority of a mere fifteen to twenty-five percent with weapons and willingness to use violence and fifty percent who would start being complacent and before they could realize that things had become beyond their control, it would be too late to prevent the inevitable. The actual vote received by the Nazi Party received was thirty-seven and two-fifths percent of the popular votes. We can figure that some of these votes were made by people who were not hardcore Nazis but voted for them to remain safe as their neighborhood had so many Nazi flags in their lawns that to vote otherwise might prove to make them suspect. We need to remember that the Nazis were not exactly adverse to the use of violence, and that can persuade people to vote differently. For those who will claim that such things could never happen in the United States, then how would they explain the Philadelphia Black Panther intimidation at a voting station intimidation threats (see video below). Then there has been the use of the FBI and Justice Department as weapons against the Trump campaign during the last election which included a Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court warrant sought and received using knowingly tainted evidence. The misconduct and weaponizing of the government is still being pealed back and who knows how many layers this onion will end up having and who else will tumble out before everything is done including possible foreign intervention against Trump from Russia and even some European allies. America is not a sacred and saintly as our sanitized school history taught us back in school, so never say that it cannot happen here.

 

 

We hope the United States continued in perpetuity as the protector of liberty and freedom for the world. We have seen one item which Israel should take to heart, that the United States is not and should never be believed to be the protector for the nation of Israel. President Obama allowing the passage of a Security Council resolution which placed almost everything beyond the Green Line as forbidden for Israelis to reside should have served as a wake-up call to the leaders of Israel from this time into the future. This would make the Palestinian Authority demand that no Jews be permitted on the lands they claim enforced by the United Nations under a Security Council resolution. This introduced a new day where support of Israel has become a partisan position where much, if not a large majority, of the Democrat Party will refuse to protect Israel without Israel meeting demands for sacrificing to the Arabs, something which would become such a threat that Israel would become difficult to defend. This is the new reality as things now appear. And the majority of non-Orthodox Jews support the Democrat Party blindly believing that it supports everything they support, and that may be valid as a measurable number of these same Jews do not actively support or care about Israel.

So You Think Ahed Tamimi is Just Misbehaving

 

There are people from the leftist let’s hate Israel group that the Arab teenager and serial gadfly which slaps and curses Israeli soldiers as her form of protest is innocent and does not deserve being arrested or tried. Well, let us take a serious look at Ms. Tamimi and her career of activities. Here we can witness a family picture from our article “Palestinian Propaganda Brought to Ithaca Third Grade” from Tuesday, ‎September ‎22, ‎2015 where we covered a small introduction to the Tamimi family and their production of terrorism. We were specifically covering the father, Bilal Tamimi, and his production company where, supported by family and friends, he instigated confrontations with Israeli soldiers and he films the entirety. He then edits them with care to produce films with which he tours the United States and Europe and shows the cruelty of these Israeli monsters in uniform and where he collects funds to protect and defend defenseless Palestinian Arabs. In this particular article, we discussed his invitation to ply his wares to a third grade class in Ithaca, New York, a location we found particularly troubling. He has made a good living off the fools who provide him the funding required to continue these projects. His lovely daughter has been raised biting, slapping, striking, kicking, punching, spitting, cursing and abusing IDF soldiers with impunity as she was under age and thus the soldiers were forbidden from even detaining her, let alone bringing charges. In this picture below, we see the Tamimi Mother and another adult holding down an IDF soldier while Ahed Tamimi, wearing a stylish pink and yellow t-shirt and jeans biting the fingers and hand of the now defenseless soldier. This was a part of the young Tamimi’s upbringing steeped in hatred and actions which were immune from consequences. This lack of consequences may have been one of the reasons that as a prosecutable adult she went too far and was arrested.

 

Tamimi Incitement of IDF Soldier Biting his Ancle and Pulling his Clothing and Hair attempting to Provoke an Attack

 

You will be glad to know that little miss Ahed Tamimi was not injured or disabused of attacking the soldier with as much viciousness as her little heart desired back in the pictured confrontation. The attack for which she was arrested was actually a series of provocations over a week of disruptions in which she was very active along with other family and friends. She was acting as she had done much of her life spitting, slapping, kicking, punching, cursing and physically assaulting the three IDF soldiers who each were toting their weapon and each followed their orders by refusing to be provoked and attempting to walk from any non-life-threatening situation allowing these degradations to continue. The Tamimi films are also shown to Palestinian Arabs with a different editing and intent. These films they find the worst attacks they can and will cut them to show the IDF soldiers and other Israeli officers walking away to avoid reacting to any and all provocations with the speech typically describing the soldiers’ actions as timidity and fear of the attackers. They play up that the IDF soldier is scared of even Arab children using the orders not to engage actively or with force unless no other alternative is available against these young soldiers. Many of these young soldiers are a year or two out of High School and are being put in situations in which many older and more mature adults would have difficulty keeping their cool, yet the soldiers are well trained and also know that if they react to the provocations, then an investigation will be conducted where their every actions will be judged harshly by investigators all too often chosen from NGO’s who are hostile to Israel and the IDF in particular.

 

Ms. Tamimi has reached the age where one is considered to reach the place in life where they are responsible for their actions. This is something new for her as she has enjoyed complete immunity from prosecution and even to arrest and detention. Even were she arrested previously, she would have to be released as soon as an adult family member demanded her release which in her case was always nearly immediate. Still, Ahed Tamimi at some point each day resorted to her usual routine which included serious assaults on the soldiers and when the soldiers were debriefed and filming of her confronting the soldiers were reviewed, the decision was finally reached to arrest her and have her stand trial for her assaulting numerous IDF soldiers with particular violence. By now, you have seen her cousin, her neighbor, everyone from every direction all-depicting a young girl protecting her home and friends from the IDF soldiers coming to shoot the children playing and murdering them for being Palestinian Arabs. If you believe that the IDF soldiers were attempting to get a shooting vantage to murder Palestinian Arab children playing and would ever get away with such an act without the entire world all but exploding and the United Nations holding thousands of emergency meetings, then you are delusional. Israel has been dragged before the court of online opinion with videos intended to slant everything and tell how Ahed Tamimi was valiantly saving the world from Israeli invaders. There are references to the Israeli communities having fences and signs saying only community members may enter and armed guards and even soldiers protecting them while the free spirited Palestinian Arabs villages are open to anybody and are welcoming and even Jews can come visit. You believe this then let me ask that you read an article which includes what happened to two IDF soldiers who made a wrong turn and entered Nablus included in our article “The Only Two Endings to Arab Israeli War” from which we took the liberty of taking the picture below and included it here. This is not an abnormal reaction to Israelis or any non-Arab when entering an Arab town, as they tend to pounce on anyone. We have included a few links to other such events including, “Israeli Attacked After Entering PA Village” and very recently, “Israeli Police Save Czech Tourists from Palestinian Mob” and lastly we wish to also show that there are very wonderful Palestinian Arabs who are not out to murder every Jew as this article showed, “Palestinian Prevents Lynching of 5 Lost American Yeshiva Students in Hebron” but, as the article posits, they are in the minority and place their own lives in jeopardy when taking such actions.

Ahed Tamimi has spent her life steeped in hatred for all things Israeli or Jewish. This has affected her and her normalcy of action has been altered, especially when confronting IDF soldiers who have always treated her with kid gloves and with deference. With her life consisting of regularly being sent into presumed harms way and attacking IDF soldiers with some results which you have not been told. She has caused numerous contusions from kicking and punching the soldiers and has broken at least one soldier’s nose. This would be in addition to some levels of frustration which soldiers were required to deal with as just seeing her and her family and initially filming equipment and now cell phones in the ready and they would know that they were supposed to hold their position but were about to be berated, punched and generally mauled all while being required not to respond. She also would hit soldiers should her family ever be able to get a soldier alone and then swarm him and get them to the ground where they are defenseless. She had a habit of attempting to grab away the soldiers’ firearms and it has been rumored that she and her family have attempted to discharge the soldiers’ weapons even when held slung over their shoulder, as they know that a soldier will face disciplinary charges should they unnecessarily discharge their weapons. Such a discharge would be considered sloppy soldiering as soldiers are required to have their firearms in safety and no bullet chambered for safety. The entire Tamimi family knows that they are all but immune from any acts of violence and pretty safe from prosecution for much of their activities. What has become understood is that the innocent village had required having IDF securing the exit towards the neighboring community and this has been true ever since the weekly attacks held by the Palestinian Arab village for Tamimi to film, as they would go to assault the neighboring Jewish community.

 

Now we will address the signs on the Israeli communities and their guards and soldiers and the open, no fence required attitude of the Palestinian Arab villages. The difference is a matter of security requirements. Where the Palestinian Arabs have often attacked the Jewish Israeli communities with rifles and bombs, the Israeli communities had to take to fencing and security guards or, if fortunate, an IDF outpost. The Israelis do not attack the Arab villages and thus they have no need for security measures such as fences and guards. The difference is demanded by a difference in the level of security required to protect the lives of the corresponding villages’ inhabitants. Another complaint the Palestinian Arabs make is they are humiliated having to pass through checkpoints. First, almost all of the checkpoints are at the entry points from the Arab Palestinian region under Palestinian Authority control into the areas under Israeli control which is the same as entering another nation. On the other hand, whenever I go to the bank I go through a checkpoint; go take the train, a checkpoint; enter the Post Office, a checkpoint; go to the main department store, a checkpoint; go to the movie theater, a checkpoint; go to watch a parade, a checkpoint; go to a concert, a checkpoint; go to a sporting event, a checkpoint or go to anyplace where there is a crowd or a restaurant or other eatery or mall or so many other places throughout Israel there will be a security checkpoint which will have metal detectors and a wand in case you make the detector beep after checking your pockets and removing your belt buckle and it still beeps (even if you do have a plate in your head or hip or too much iron in your blood). An Israeli probably faces a minimum of four or more security checkpoints every day, and the number of more is probably more true than most would care to admit. Israelis live with tighter security out of necessity. Part of the reason includes the Tamimi family who were behind the planning and execution of the Sbarro Pizza Bombing which claimed the lives listed below plus injuring at least three-hundred more.

The really sad part are the families where part of them died and others survived with too often loss of limbs and other life-long injuries on top of the memories and mental difficulties, especially the children. Malka Chana (Malki) Roth, 15, from Jerusalem was one of those lost and her parents took a different path than many might expect. In 2001, the family of Malka Chana (Malki) Roth, a 15-year-old victim of the attack, founded The Malki Foundation, a charity organization that supports families of children with disabilities. All services and equipment are provided at no cost to the families. People of all religions and backgrounds are eligible for assistance. The organization is a memorial to Malka Roth’s life. In the end, during the 2011 Gilad Shalit prisoner exchange, relatives of the victims of the bombing vehemently protested the release of Ahlam Tamimi, who chose the Sbarro Pizzeria as a target and drove the bomber to the location. As we stated, Ahed Tamimi comes from a strong line of terrorists who live for the murder of Israelis.

 

We know there will be those who will continue to believe, against all logic and evidence, that Ahed Tamimi is the victim of Israeli perfidy and fighting the good fight against the occupation and that Israel is the monstrous force which needs to be brought down. We understand that you will claim you are not an anti-Semite and that you love the Jews but it is the Zionists and the evil they have wrought in claiming the lands which are rightfully theirs under International law because the law is wrong and evil and the land belongs to the Arabs. You will claim, as does Mahmoud Abbas, that the Arabs were in Jerusalem and the entire area thousands of years before Moses and the Jews showed up. Some will claim that the land belongs to Ishmael and not Izsak. We even understand why it is just Israel you have problems with and maybe the United States as they are the sole lands founded on the graves of the rightful owners. For the United States, they must return the lands to the Native Americans and Israel to the Arabs. You ignore that the Jews claim to the lands of Israel predates the Native Americans’ claims to their lands within the United States, and also Canada, if we are being honest. Mexico does not belong to the Mexicans as most are of mixed Spanish decent and the same goes for the rest of South and Central America though in Brazil they are partly Portuguese. Much of China was conquered lands as is Germany and much of Europe and even the British Isles. In all honesty, virtually every country on the face of the globe were founded through conquest or settlement and stolen from some previous inhabitants or through mixed bloodlines as another form of conquest, just send males of the prime age and then conquer through intermarriage and then force your religion or nationality on the indigenous tribes and peoples. Much of Christianity was spread thusly and all of Islam outside Mecca and Medina, and even those were taken by force from the pagans, are not native Islamic lands but the result of conquest (do we really need to show the map again).

 

Of all the world where conquest established the current rulers and peoples in virtually every nation, it is only Israel, with possibly the United States provided the wrong person is the President, with whom you have problems. Basically, it is the Jewish Homeland and potentially the United States when she stands for her founding basic Judeo-Christian Ethos, then you have problems. It is that Israel (and understand the United States under the ‘wrong’ President) with whom you find fault because Israel refuses to accept your ethics of postmodernism. Israel believes in Judaic values with all of its rules, ethics, morality and all those things which your postmodernism claims are worthless and inhibiting, thus worthy of your disgust and that Israel is thriving with their values and you flounder with your lack thereof drives you to a frothing anger. How dare Israel show up your postmodernism for what it is, a recipe for failure and eventual takeover by an authoritarian dictatorship which you believe you will run. Look around at the other places which have discarded the original principles and religious morals and see failure after failure. The sole exception has been China where they have adopted quasi-Capitalism and allowed some morality to return to the society and even dropped their disastrous one-child policy. Russia is just beginning to revive its core by readopting their Orthodox Church with all of its trappings. Those who were once postmodernists claiming that religion and its morality were really empty shells which you were going to prove by discarding the baby with the bathwater and adopt nothing as your guiding principle, you will reap what you are sowing. Meanwhile, Israel will continue to thrive and succeed for as long as she is capable of surviving the attacks upon her by the rest of the area’s nations including Iran and her allies. You can hate our religiousness but please just follow your postmodernism, believing that Israel is allowed, even under your nothing has any intrinsic values and anything goes morality, that we choose our anything, not you. Your job is to care for your requirements and not impress your life onto others. Postmodernism preaches to each their own and everyone can choose their own values, and Israel has chosen its values. That is not for you to validate or recriminate, it is yours to wish us luck and then leave us alone. The rest of the lies can be dropped because we know the reality of your spite and it is against Judaic values.
