One Single Terror Attack Very Revealing

 

At 11:13 yesterday morning a single event occurred thus revealing so much of what Vice President Biden’s trip amplified but was the mirage of a lie not telling the whole truth. A young twenty year old woman soldier was stabbed in her neck and upper body by a pair of terrorists who were intercepted by Ariel city security officials. The terrorists refused to disarm and were engaged by the security officers who responded killing the two terrorists. The young woman was transferred to Beilinson Hospital after initial treatment by Magen David Adom (MDA) where she was still conscious but in moderate to serious condition with wounds to her neck and upper body. The young soldier, a young woman, was fortunate to have survived and in Israel, as in many places throughout the world, we see her survival from such a life-threatening assault as a miracle, and we celebrate all miracles be they large or small.

 

When Vice President Biden visited Israel and also met with Mahmoud Abbas, he reportedly sternly insisted that the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority (PA) denounce the terror attack where an American veteran and Vanderbilt student, Taylor Force age 29, who was visiting the many wondrous places of religious and historic significance, was murdered along with a number of people also assaulted and injured before the terrorist was eliminated. Abbas expressed condolences over the murdered American veteran but refused to denounce the terror attack, instead pressing that he was acting beyond the PA ability to affect and they were responding to the settlements and that Israel had murdered over one hundred PA citizens while very few Israelis had died since last October. Never in much of the news reports in the United States which we were able to sample was mentioned the instigation by PA media, television, radio, social media or the support given paying terrorists families a monthly stipend if a family member dies committing a terror attack against Israelis and salaries in the thousands of dollars per month to terror prisoners serving in Israeli prisons. The instigation used by the PA claims that the Jews are defiling Islamic holy sites, planning on destroying their holy sites and holding demonic services in the al-Aqsa Mosque. All these claims are not only unfounded but truly ludicrous and beyond belief from any reason but the instigations are so pernicious and permeating the PA society at all levels often working on pure emotion of the impressionable youth who are encouraged to grab a kitchen knife or even scissors and the plan is to make life dangerous for Israelis. They care little to nothing for their own young and impressionable children’s lives as those who die will have their families paid far more than even PA government employees are paid and these deaths will be flaunted before the world in efforts to besmirch Israel and demand Israeli leaders be condemned for these unfortunate young victims lives which they flaunt while refusing to live up to their unceasing incitement.

Back to the young soldier who was attacked at a much used by both Israelis and Palestinian Arabs bus and hitchhiking stop where she was assaulted by the two young Palestinians Arabs who likely attacked her without any warning as she likely thought nothing of their approach as this was a shared use location. Her wounds were sufficiently severe and at least one stabbing wound to her neck could have easily been fatal rather than simply life threatening and her vital areas so barely avoided in the assault that Hashem was watching over her and her being spared was very fortunate. Her life is not immediately threatened but she is reported not to be completely out of danger though she is expected to recover. This makes her far more fortunate than approximately score and a half other Israelis whose families mourned a great loss as they fell to the terror wave being orchestrated by Mahmoud Abbas and the rest of the PA assets and multiple instigations and provocations. Just as the Israelis victimized by these terror attacks there are others also victimized by these viscous attacks, and those are the families of the other terror victims, these impressionable youths responding to the incessant driving propaganda being treacherously used to sacrifice Palestinian youths in the hope that each can murder at least one Israeli before being stopped. The PA would gladly trade ten young Arabs in order to murder one Israeli as they honestly believe that such a trade-off would work in their favor as they constantly claim, they celebrate death as the Jews love life, and this terror wave they are impelling is all the proof any observer would honestly need to understand the reality, but honesty and truth are another victim of the propaganda as the rest of the world refuse to understand the motivation behind the attacks and instead rush to blame Israel for, you probably can guess where this is going, blame Israel for using disproportional force. That would be like blaming police for using disproportional force because more criminals resisting arrest violently are killed than police officers were murdered by the criminals. After some of the recent events that received unimaginable media coverage when police could have been said to have used disproportional force even if a different terminology was used, the claim was the same and just as ludicrous in most if not all instances.

 

This terror attack can be used as a measure for the entirety of the propaganda versus the reality, a young lady and soldier was severely injured and almost murdered while her two assailants attempted to injure others and assaulted security officers who used their weapons to stop the attacks and preserve innocent lives; but if one asked, Mahmoud Abbas would describe today’s terror attack as an Israeli soldier was slightly wounded in an attack where two Palestinian youths, innocent youths, were murdered by the Israeli who over reacted. Terror, of course not, there was only an understandable reaction to Israeli acts which drive the Palestinians to believe they have no other recourse. There is a constant drumming of provocations, propaganda, lies, deceits, and preposterous incitements pushing the youth to believe they are defending their holy places which their own government tells them are under threat because of Jewish desecrations. Abbas then claims to the world that there are provocations because Jews are stealing Palestinian lands and are building everywhere. There has not been even a single new patio constructed since the 2012 reelection of President Obama but Abbas is not referring to building beyond the Green Line, his demand is the Jews stop building on all the lands they claim as occupied, which includes all of Israel. That is the other lie which is seldom if ever mentioned. The truth can be seen simply by visiting the PA, PLO, Hamas, Islamic Jihad or other Arab social media and translate the Arabic to a language such as English for the United States, or French in France or Brussels, or German for Germany, etc.; but apparently that is beyond the ability of the western media. The political and new media are even incapable of reading the many Internet sites which translate many of these videos and other media such as Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) and Palestinian Media Watch (PMW). Sometimes the easiest things prove to be far too difficult for politicians and media despite they are fully aware of the availability of accurate information as they prefer simply parroting that which makes them comfortable and reinforces their preferred slant on the news, the truth be damned.

Israeli Settlements a False Issue

 

Concentrating on half-a-million Jews and ignoring a situation of ten times the numbers which are the five-million refugees presumably all from 1948, with just a smattering from 1967, forced within Israel proper to force Israel to become an Arab state, the twenty-third Arab State, and removing the sole Jewish State conceals the reality of the situation, that the Arabs are insisting not on their own state but to have both states to become Arab states with the names of Palestine and al-Israelabi. But the reasoning behind the concern all about the “Jewish problem” while ignoring the facts that the Arabs are demanding the death of Israel, demanding to be permitted to swamp the only Jewish State with sufficient Arabs “refugees” who have never for one second been within Israeli borders, demanding the Jews accept any deal as temporary until the next temporary deal, and demanding the world assist in murdering the six-million plus Jews residing in Israel by refusing them exit when the Arabs takeover is simply because the Israelis are civilized and will talk and are willing to resolve problems in a civilized manner while the Arabs are living under a seventh century code of accept surrender and then plunder, ravage, pillage and murder the former inhabitants or change the order around and put murder the former inhabitants ahead of accept surrender and then plunder, ravage, pillage and murder the remainder of former inhabitants. Meanwhile Europe and the United States and the remainder of Western Civilization is hoping against hope that the Arabs will be sated for a period of time with having Israel sacrificed for a momentary peace except that has absolutely no possibility of working, and here is why.

 

The world needs to wake to the nightmare that is facing them. The leftists in order to rid the world of those they find distasteful from those amongst them, the ones insisting on preserving the Judeo-Christian value system, are siding with a primeval force which is tribal and fiercely demanding of those it rules that they surrender completely and totally to their societal structure which leads to destroying all else and making it all a part of their Islamic society. The difficulty with accepting such a deal will not satisfy these Islamists because their definition of Islam does not accept the convert as having made the choice freely thus not being of a pure Islamic soul and therefore they will be amongst the first sacrificed for the purity of Islam. A warning to the half a billion Muslims who think they are following Islam correctly, you have made one horrific choice as only a Sunni or Shiite can be a true and good Muslim, whichever ends up with the largest camp of believers once the world has been subjugated and all other beliefs have been eradicated. Once the entirety of Islam has been whittled to the pure Sunni or Shiite state, we will simply refer to this as Islam as it matters little which one becomes the prevalent and thus the only form of Islam practiced because this does not end the purification as there will then be those Muslims who are slightly different than the rest of the followers of Islam so they must be impure. This purification could continue until, as in Highlander, there will be only one, and we do mean only one, and thus the end of Islam, Human kind and finally a real intelligent life-form can develop and hopefully make a whole new and different set of mistakes as the most intelligent species on the planet.

 

That problem of an uncivilized force living within a civil society played out again on the streets of Israel yesterday. As of this writing an infant who suffered horrific wounds including the near loss of one of its tiny legs had gone into emergency surgery at Ein Kerem Hospital with the hopes of saving the one and a half year old’s leg through microsurgical techniques and also saving the infant’s life. Dr. Ofer Merin, head of the trauma unit at Shaare Tzedek Hospital, said “the infant aged around a year-and-a-half has a serious wound to his leg. We decided to transfer him to Hadassah Ein Kerem to save his leg in an attempt at micro-surgery treatment.” The attack which caused this dire and tragic situation was the result of yet another assault on a crowded sidewalk in Jerusalem by ramming into the crowd with a vehicle. The attack might have turned out for the worse had the vehicle not struck a fire hydrant bringing it to a stop. After ramming and destroying the hydrant, the driver emerged from the vehicle armed with a hand axe and started moving towards the injured with the obvious intent to finish off as many of the injured who could not run from him and then probably slashing at whomever they were capable of striking. Fortunately, when the driver, a twenty-one-year-old Arab terrorist from Jerusalem’s Beit Hanina neighborhood, emerged still intent on even more carnage that bystanders ended his rampage of carnage dispatching the terrorist with a few shots eliminating any further realizations of this terrorist and potentially still qualifying as a murderous intent almost qualifying as human. Below is a video of the scene soon after the incident had been dramatically brought to a close and the treatment started. There were fourteen people injured with an older woman in her sixties and the young infant the most serious amongst those injured which does include the infant’s mother being treated at the same hospital as her child, Ein Kerem Hospital. More images can be seen on an article covering the initial assault on Arutz Sheva.

 

 

 

 

Additionally, yesterday three people received light wounds from a rock attack on their vehicle. As they related, their vehicle was assaulted by a barrage of various sized rocks as they were ambushed by a number of youths hurling rocks including some of considerable size one of which penetrated the vehicle window and is pictured below. The three injured individuals received treatment from Magen David Adom (MDA) medical teams and were taken to hospital for additional treatment. Such attacks have become a daily event with numerous such attacks each day. As many Israeli drivers whose travel takes them into areas both within and outside the Green Line where such attacks regularly occur have had the windows of their vehicles replaced with tougher and more resilient and impervious to rock attacks installed and thus have escaped such attacks with minor dents to their vehicles but with the passengers unhurt and capable of taking such attacks more in stride. This does not lessen the severity of the problem but has played to make such attacks not as newsworthy despite there not being any decrease in the number of vehicles under such attacks daily. The only such attacks which are reported are thus those with injuries of sufficient severity as to require a visit and treatment at a hospital; as if the first responders at such an attack are capable of treating people at the scene and their not requiring transport to a hospital, that by the time a reporter and cameraman can appear on the scene of a rock attack the only thing left to see is the police report which even that would require a request for information as even that report has been filed by the police. It is a sad commentary to be capable of saying such attacks which would be considered front page newsworthy in Paris or New York, London or Los Angeles, Berlin or Chicago, the Hague or Boston or even Brussels or Washington D.C. does not make the news cycle even if it were to take place in Jerusalem or Tel Aviv as without a picture there are not the thousand words to replace such and thus the story remains untold. What the world must remember that the attacks on Israelis, be they rock assaults on Israeli vehicles on her roadways, knifings with anything from a kitchen knife to a screwdriver or even including hand axes or rammings with a vehicle where the vehicle is towed away and the people treated on scene, again, no dramatic video and accompanying pictures, then no article and it is dismissed as just another such assault. The positive is by giving such attacks virtually no coverage or mention in the news beyond a blurb before going to commercial, almost a filler if necessary, just does not give the terrorist any “fame” or credit, so to speak, and thus makes the entire idea of such an attack less appealing or glamorous, and the perpetrator being eliminated without being referred to except by the most general of terms, no glamour, no fame, not even any decent notice and possibly thus no virgins in Muslim paradise, what could be worse.

Still, if anyone from the White House or State Department wishes to be front page news, all they need do is one more time condemn Israel for building homes for Jews on land which is liberated Israeli lands taken in an offensive war in 1948-9 by the seven Arab nation’s armies in an attempt to drive the Jews into the sea and annihilate them. The so-called “West Bank” is actually Judea and Samaria which were part of Israel on the morning of May 15, 1948 and the evening before when David ben Gurion pronounce Israeli independence from British rule ending the British Mandate and the next morning seven national armies swarmed over Israeli borders intent on murdering every soul they met, Arab or Israeli. The Mufti of Jerusalem, though during World War II he could have more easily been declared the Mufti of Berlin, has instructed all the Arabs living within Israel to leave and get behind the front lines of the assailing and soon to be tasting victory Arab armies. The imminent slaughter of everybody within Israel did not quite come about as planned as something unheard of until that fateful day, which means very simply, the Jews fought back and did not just wait to be slaughtered as had been the case in Europe. A new day was coming.

 

Next time you hear somebody claim it is the Jews and the settlements which are to blame for there being no peace settlement; please correct their uninformed opinion with some reality. The Arabs could have had half of all the land but they would not settle for anything less than all of the lands and the better half at that. While Jordan held the “West Bank” they could have had their state but they formed the PLO in order to use terrorism to take all the lands. Anytime since the 1967 Six Day War Israel would have traded the “West Bank” all of Judea and Samaria back to Jordan for peace. When Jordan, after Sadat and Egypt boldly went where no Arab had gone before and made peace with the Jewish State (he paid for this brave and fateful move with his life as members of a reviewing troop broke ranks and assaulted the stands and slaughtered him for making peace) Jordan made peace and forfeited Judea and Samaria which Jordan had occupied since 1948-9 up until the lands were liberated in the Six Day War. A few years later the Jordanian monarch bent to pressures from the Muslim Brotherhood and the eighty percent of Jordanian population which also call themselves Palestinians, and forfeited the Jordanian claim (the same claim forfeited to Israel at the peace talks) to the PLO such that their struggle would now be treated as a struggle for their homelands and not just wanton terrorism when they murdered families having lunch at Sbarro Pizza Parlor or a Passover Seder for Holocaust Survivors and their families in the Park Hotel in Netanya, a northern suburb of Tel Aviv which were both blown to pieces by bombs in terror attacks which are taught in Palestinian Authority (PA) and Hamas schools as brave acts of martyrs to be honored and emulated. Please read these last links as they will open a new vision into these acts and their places in the two different societies, one barbarous in nature the other the civilized one who is blamed as that is the safer target.

 

When you hear anybody claim that Israel is the impediment to peace, please tell them we would give back the presumed desired lands except the Arabs want all of the lands and have refused numerous offers including one granted only because President Clinton claimed that Yasser Arafat had agreed to the terms thus Ehud Barak agreed to those same exact terms and Arafat stalked from the next morning’s meeting rejecting the very offer he made the night before without even a counter and within six weeks began the second intifada which claimed over a thousand Israeli lives and is what led to the construction of the wall and fence which ended the stream of suicide bombings as it took going through a checkpoint to enter Israel thus no more bombings. Ever since that went into effect the PA has pressed the United States Presidents to demand Israel open the passage into Israel and remove the racist checkpoints as they are demeaning. I have to go through a checkpoint to take a train, a checkpoint to enter a mall, a checkpoint to watch the Purim Parade in my town, a checkpoint to listen to candidates speak, a checkpoint to enter the municipal building to pay my water bill, a checkpoint to enter the post office where many other transactions other than packages and stamps take place, a checkpoint to enter the department store downtown and a checkpoint to visit my father in the hotel when he visits. Israelis have to go through checkpoints because of Palestinian terror attacks because one can never be too careful. Just to put this into perspective, with the entirety of Israeli public on alert and all who are licensed for weapons carry taking their firearm with them as added safety for all; the totals for the past three Jewish calendar months, that is exactly one-hundred-eighty days (three thirty-day months) are twenty-two dead, two-hundred-fifty-two injured which does not count for the numbers of people suffering from rock assaults whose cars were damaged but the passengers were unharmed and often these are unreported, and unsuccessful stabbing attacks where the terrorist was unsuccessful and upon meeting determined or armed opposition fled and thus going unreported, yet in each such case there is still the mental strains and stresses unimaginable by those never facing combat or similar situations and may they continue to be spared such horrors.

 

Tell them that just because the media does not cover the terror and violence launched and perpetrated upon Israelis, all Israelis including Arabs, Muslims, Christians, Bahá’í, Buddhists and of course Jews has not abated, it has simply returned to the whatever is the latest ‘norm,’ that is all. Currently that is as many as three stabbings per day, up to three cars used as an assault vehicle rammed into bus stops and other such gathering places, as many as seven rockets out of Gaza each month, and various other inconveniences perpetrated on Israelis dressed too Jewish such as spitting, slamming shoulder as passing, curses, tripping and other insults and degradations as what would be considered a major incident if it were to happen to a Muslim in almost any European or other western nation and the entire world would cease rotating until the dog who perpetrated such an insult was brought to shame, such being perpetrated on predominately Jews in Israel (or most of the rest of the world) is nothing to get excited about as it is no big deal. The only reason the last Gaza War did not produce thousands of dead Israelis was the Iran Dome and its over ninety percent interception rate. Even then there would have been thousands potentially killed in one single attack except for the hand of Hashem, praised be, as the Iron dome had missed three times and it was a puff of the wind between total calms which pushed the rocket into the sea instead of striking the central business center of Tel Aviv where likely thousands would have died and at least one if not as many as five towering skyscrapers could have been felled causing untold carnage. Read about this miracle here. Israel is not an impediment to peace and had been an impediment to an outright military attack by Islam on Europe, but that is no longer a worry as Europe invited the invasion in upon itself and that is beyond Israeli abilities as wonderful as they are. One cannot save those not wishing to be saved, but at least let those who choose sanity to retain that sanity and do not impose your insanity upon them. If Europe desires fifty-million Islamic “refugees,” we will not prevent them taking all that they desire; we just desire to miss out on that deal which only leaves more for Europe to take, a mere drop in the bucket as the tap in Europe for Islamic immigration unchecked and without any restrictions, just walk right in. May they tread lightly upon your culture.
