Despicable Violence Condemnable, Period

 

An Arab Palestinian child, a one-and-a-half year-old baby, was killed and four other people were wounded as a result of an arson attack on a house in the village of Duma, northeast of Ramallah. To the best of our knowledge the perpetrator of this horrific crime has yet to be named or arrested. Whoever committed this crime should pay dearly for their crime whether Jew or Arab and that is the truth. The international outcry and the hand wringing within the Knesset, the President’s residence and from the Prime Minister is righteous anger and is completely and honestly expressed, or at least we pray their concern is as they have acted. The strange thing is that this is what it took to get them to condemn violence against people simply out of what we have thus far assumed was interracial violence out of pure hate. It is refreshing to have them demonstrate such human emotion and abhorrence to such violence but it begs a question, why all of a sudden and only now when their public outcry had been muted by comparison when the perceived violence has been in the other direction. Before waiting for the answer, allow me to try and see if I can venture a guess. It is due to the apparent first instinct that this was committed by a Jew against the family whose house was incinerated and whose infant died as a result of this criminal and hateful act and that is an aberration and completely unacceptable by Jewish laws and we are shocked beyond words so instead we issue an avalanche of condemnations even before we know who committed this crime.

 

Arab Palestinian child died as the result of terror attack was only one-and-a-half year-old baby, while four other people were wounded and were initially treated at a Palestinian Hospital but have been transferred to an Israeli hospital where a more intensive level of burn care is available as specializes in burn care which is needed as the wounded suffered burns as a result of the arson attack on this house in the village of Duma, northeast of Ramallah

May the wounded be given speedy and total recovery from their wounds by the tender mercies of Hashem as any human suffering is to be eased wherever and whenever possible. May the perpetrator of this heinous crime be caught and brought to trial for this crime. Beyond that there is little we can honestly assume or conclude in order to condemn this act with any more or less severity than we could have any other such horrific act where the life of one so young was snuffed out so early that they barely were able to get beyond the innocent amazement moment to moment as the wonders of the world were unfolding beyond their curious eyes and experiencing new sounds at every bird chirp or leaves rustling in a breeze. Such a senseless loss of one so innocent is always seemingly more horrific a loss but a life taken is a life taken and when it occurs accidently it is a tragedy and when done as a result of an act with malicious intent it crosses into abhorrence and our shock is doubled. This should be true no matter whose infant is so cruelly taken and the mourning should be just as heartfelt whether the loss is a Jewish child or a Arab child as a child so young has no hatred within them and only wonder. Much of the reaction to this loss by the Jewish leadership is due to the shock at the possibility that this act of spite and hatred may have been committed by a Jew making this a truly shocking act in an additional manner. I understand that should this have been an act resulting from an act of a Jew they are to be spit out of our community and ostracized for committing an act unacceptable no matter the reason motivating the individual.

 

That is the difference and why the reactions appear to be so out of place and amplified beyond our normal reaction to violence taking the life of an infant, an innocent from amongst the families of all mankind. We as Jews suffer the end of the life of an innocent whenever such occurs in our neighborhood for we love life and abhor senseless death of any kind. When it becomes apparent that such taking of a life of an innocent may have been committed by another Jew our abhorrence for the act is increased astronomically as we all feel we are guilty by association. We are reacting to the possibility that the stain of this act may fall on our heads as we are all to some extent feeling the extra pain of responsibility. There is the truth behind the reactions we are witnessing within our community. If the perpetrator of this horrific act does indeed turn out to be a fellow Jew there will be no candies handed out in our streets, no street named for this shameful person, no celebratory parades honoring this act, no praise for a victory in some perceived struggle, and no excuses made as we will meter out justice probably with just that extra amount of force and severity in the punishment and all because we, each and every Jew, feel the abhorrence and pain that such an act could emanate from amongst our community. This is what is behind the gnashing of teeth and the heads hung in shame.

 

What is also apparent are the reactions from outside Israel which came and each one felt as if the target was each and every Jew in Israel. The truth is that many of the accusatory fingers were pointed in just that accusatory manner blaming the entirety of Israel for this crime. That is what was different in the outside world’s reaction to this murder, an extra seeming feeling that this lost life was somehow worth just a little more of a loss than the deaths of previous infants. There were true expressions of pain and somehow no call for restraint as they expected and desired no restrain, just a wholly vindication as this one potential criminal act if perpetrated by a Jew now vindicated every crime committed against the Jews as they are now deserved. This outcry from the rest of the world was the equal of the outcry for the death of Mohammed al Dura and the special editing performed by some French media to the taping of the event in order to make it appear to fit the scripted tragedy which never occurred. When the investigation eventually revealed the hoax the reaction by much of the world was a big sigh and the comment that well, it could have been real. There is a continuing outcry heard in Europe and the United States at rallies against Israel where the cry goes out demanding remember ‘al Dura’ and the appropriate yells abound.

 

Now there will be an echoing outcry for this loss and all the more so should the evil person who committed this crime prove to be a Jew and even continued if not committed by a Jew because a Jew was suspected of committing this criminal act. This additional outcry is the result of the need to blame the Jews so that the next fifty such crimes against Jewish children will be excused because of the incrimination abounding now, simply because this may have been an act of Jewish terrorism and thus so much more of an abhorrence. Remember why it is such a greater abhorrence if a Jew committed this horrific act, it is a greater abhorrence because it flies against everything that is expected of Jews to never take an innocent’s life. The difference in the outcry against this act as it stands as potentially an act of Jewish hate is decried by both the outside world condemning this act and the equally loud condemnations from the Jews who doubly are outraged by this possible act by one of our own. When the victim has been a Jewish child the outcry usually comes only from inside the Jewish community while the outside community denounces the act couched within a demand for diminished action and for understanding of the motivations of the perceived act of vengeance more so than an act of hate.

 

There is the difference as the Jewish community is in a search of our communitive soul seeking where the cancer of hate may have invaded and we seek to excise this hate before its vileness has the chance to spread. Jews react with horror at even the possibility that such an act could have come from within our societal body and we seek it out in order to remove it from the body of our community and fulfil the act of punishment of the perpetrator and punishment we will mete out to ourselves as if a Jew committed this barbarism then we all have a small part in this act of animalistic hate. As Jews we feel the responsibility of our community when such hatred appears to have emanated from one of our own and we seek to find and denounce the perpetrator of this crime. We refuse to accept any excuse from within our community as such barbarity is never to be accepted from a Jew, and this is the additional outcry from every corner. The sorrow is that similar calls for communal purging are seldom made when the act is in the opposite direction. We are witnessing the long held belief that ‘Arab Palestinian Lives Matter’ and they apparently matter more if a Jew is to blame for their death. On the other hand we seldom see the opposite that ‘Jewish Lives Matter’ being expressed anywhere outside the Jewish community as a reaction to equivalent acts against Jews as there is always some mitigating reason which makes the act against a Jewish life somehow partly the fault of the Jews, even if it is only for being the victim.

 

How many people remember an act of equal if not superior barbarism in Itamar? How about the overturned car resulting from a rock attack on a vehicle on Route 60 near Hevron which took two lives, one not quite two years in age? Does anyone remember the tragic last year of the life of Adelle Biton who was struck in the head by a rock crashing through the family car window in an ambush where we eventually were to learn that the infant barely two years old was actually targeted when the gang of youths saw a child in an infant seat in the back of the car. The young Adelle Biton hung on to life for a little over a year succumbing to her wounds just after her third birthday. The list of Jewish children murdered are never listed as reasons to mitigate the criminal act such as this case because their deaths are irrelevant except as a metric to understand the difference in the reactions both within and outside the Jewish community and within the Arab community. The contrast that needs be made is the official reaction over time between the criminal, vicious and murderous act against an Arab child will be echoed on by those choosing to exploit those rare, though not rare enough, acts of hatred potentially by a Jew compared to an apparently similarly motivated criminal act brought against a Jewish child where immediately upon it being committed by somebody from outside the Jewish community the uproar consists more towards the demand that the Jews just suck it up and take it as just another act of senseless violence.

 

In a different look, Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili, also known as Joseph Stalin, has been credited with making the callous statement that, “One death is a tragedy, a million deaths merely a statistic.” While a slightly differently quote attributed only as coming from a Frenchman in a review written by Charles J. Rolo writing in “The Atlantic Bookshelf” section of the magazine claimed the quote was, “Scourges as immense as fascism and war present the novelist with a knotty problem of ways and means. A Frenchman has aptly remarked that ‘a single man killed is a misfortune, a million is a statistic.’” Giving credit once again to Stalin when as Commissar of Munitions during a meeting of what was described as some of the highest ranking Commissars discussing the continued deaths from hunger in the Ukraine, as the figures were being listed Stalin interrupted exclaiming vociferously, “If only one man dies of hunger, that is a tragedy. If millions die, that’s only statistics.” In another instance during an interview where Stalin was questioned by Lady Astor presumably with George Bernard Shaw present according to the article in the Christian Science Monitor dated 1932, as she queried, “Mr. Stalin, how long are you going to continue killing people?” to which Stalin calmly and sternly replied, “As long as it is necessary.” The original quote of “One death is a tragedy, a million deaths merely a statistic,” can be said to apply as an explanation of the uproar largely due to the suspicions that this heinous crime was perpetrated by a Jew places it in the “single death being a tragedy,” while the murdering of Jewish infants or children fall under, thanks to a long history of such events being merely recorded rather than denounced and protested, fall into the category of “a million deaths merely a statistic.

 

My last commentary will be on the reported quotes of the graffiti found at the scene of the arson attack where the scrawling were in Hebrew, not necessarily damning by itself, but still the main lead putting the sleuths to seek a Jewish perpetrator, as only Jews are capable of writing on walls of crime scenes in Hebrew. The graffiti, which according to Walla! News read “יחי מלך המשי” which translates to, “long live King Messiah” as well as the word “revenge” while next to each phrase was the Jewish star. Revenge is a universal concept and is more often than not insufficient an excuse for taking matters into one’s own hands. Revenge can be the motivation for any arsonist though arson is rather peculiar method for extracting revenge though such has been the case. The other quote, “יחי מלך המשי”which translates to, “long live King Messiah” strikes me as somewhat odd as in Judaism the Mashiach has yet to come, though we are to live our lives as if he will appear in the next moment such as we have no way of determining the arrival of the Mashiach and thus must always be in a state of holiness just in case the improbable occurs and the Mashiach were to appear. Since the Mashiach, the Messiah, has yet to arrive one really cannot wish them long life and anyways, the Mashiach is an eternal entity and thus has infinite life, or at least life for as long as there is existence which we all pray is infinite despite the mutterings of physicists and astronomers or, dare we say, astrophysicists. I may be out on a limb all by myself on this one but it just struck me as rather a strange thing to write, especially at the scene of a horrific act of arson and murder. Hopefully the perpetrator of this unspeakable horror which caused the death of a one-and-a-half year-old baby be brought to justice and through the ordeal learn that revenge lies not in our hands but only in the hands of the state and ultimately in the care by Hashem.

There are numerous fronts where Israel is under assault and all threaten the legitimacy of Israeli claims to lands defined as belonging to the Jewish State by International Law. Yes, we’re back to the San Remo Conference and Treaty and the legitimacy of its contents accepted by the world by means of Article 80 of the United Nations Charter. The sole means by which any lands are to be removed from the official boundaries of the State of Israel stretching from the Mediterranean Sea to the Jordan River is by treaty made, approved and signed by Israel. The Oslo Accords demanded discussion to forming a Palestinian entity within these lands and were to be terminated by the year 2000. It was in the year 2000 when Israel made her most generous offer through efforts extended by United States President William Jefferson Clinton which included almost 95% of Judea and Samaria (West Bank) and Eastern Jerusalem as its Capital City. This was the effort which Yasser Arafat declined even to make a counter offer and stalked out of the talks in Paris and continued refusing entreaties made at Taba, Egypt January21, 2001 to January 27, 2001 as President Clinton, with complete cooperation and willingness from Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak to concede to virtually any compromise required to make a peace deal, made final proffers. All advances and offerings were left refused without even the slightest hint regarding what made the proposed deals unworkable and with Israeli elections were coming the final tender was communicated on January 27, 2001 with an addendum that this was the final opportunity to reach an agreement and still only silence from the Palestinians.

 

This lack of acceptance will forever be contemplated seeking any logical reason for Yasser Arafat’s refusal of an offer which met every last demand, which included the eastern half of Jerusalem along with 95% of the ‘West Bank’ lands and all of Gaza, Arafat had demanded for him to accept such a deal in his private meeting with United States President Clinton, which eventually brought forth the offer to meet every demand expressed to President Clinton granted grudgingly, but full hopes for the promised final peace agreement by Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak. If ever a deal was to be made, this would have been the best moment and greatest offer but Yasser Arafat had to refuse this deal or any deal which did not also include the remainder of the lands between the River and the Sea, that is Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea, as that is the actual claim of the so-called ‘Palestinian’ the actual and only acceptable claim for their imaginary land of ‘Palestine’, as accepting anything less as the final deal will always be unacceptable. The only manner in which even a deal which is backed by the rest of the planet Earth and all the leaders within including the entirety of the expressed demands for two States for two Peoples living side by side in peace and security would be accepted is if the offer is interpreted by the Palestinian leadership as an accord and not necessarily the final peace allowing for the Palestinians to continue their war of attrition through the use of terrorism and subterfuge towards their final desires of all of Palestine from the River to the Sea, exactly as chanted endlessly by their advocates and provocateurs on college and university campuses across the Western World. Now the world in its numerous formations and connivances is collectively working to force the demarcation of a State of Palestine by force upon Israel without the inconvenience of an actual treaty ending the violence, assaults and provocations by the Arab Palestinians or resolving once and for all the demands for the liberation of the remainder of the land of Israel by Arab Palestinian terrorist and political intrigues and subversions.

 

The first real and cast in cement, not quite stone, was the refusal to issue a birth certificate for Ari Z. Zivotofsky and Naomi Siegman for their son, Menachem Binyamin, to have his passport, United States birth certificate and other documents requested from the State Department to show Israel as his country of birth as he was born in Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek hospital in western Jerusalem. The United States Department of State current policy requires that Menachem Binyamin’s and any other children’s passports and Consular Reports of Birth Abroad (equivalent of a birth certificate) only show that their place of birth as Jerusalem without any mention or denotation of nation so as not to imply that United States policy has changed in regards to the final claims to the city of Jerusalem. So now the United States Department of State does not recognize Western Jerusalem as part of Israel but rather as contested lands. First step in the assault on Israel and the eventual dissolution of the entirety of the Jewish State, a desire the State Department has advised and remained as their policy that Israel not be treated as an actual State, and actual nation replete with the normative respects and treatments legal and otherwise as granted every other nation. All of this controversy despite law passed in 2002 by Congress and signed into law by President George W. Bush providing for children born in Jerusalem and being United States citizens by birth to have their birth listed Israel as their birthplace; what could be more obvious and simple.

 

This Sunday, May 18, 2015, Pope Francis will canonize four nuns who include Sister Maria Baouardy and Sister Mary Alphonsine Danil as well as the 19th-century nuns Sister Jeanne Emilie de Villeneuve, from France, and Sister Maria Cristina dell’Immacolata of Italy. Sister Maria Baouardy and Sister Mary Alphonsine Danil Ghattas will be canonized denoting them as being the first Palestinians to be so honored. This is only the first of the official offences to Israel coming from the Vatican this weekend. Already Pope Frances has met with Mahmoud Abbas referencing Abbas as being an “angel of peace” during the traditional exchange of gifts at the end of an official audience in the Apostolic Palace. This is far from the first slight by this Pope. Pope Francis on his first trip to the region met first with Mahmoud Abbas in Bethlehem making numerous complimentary statements toward Abbas and the Arab Palestinians which was followed by a processions by Pope Francis with an ‘unplanned,’ ‘unscripted’ and ‘completely random’ stop to pray and contemplate for peace standing before a section of the security barrier which was adorned with graffiti which compared Bethlehem with the Warsaw Ghetto, called for Palestine to be Free and various other similar references arranged in such a manner that a central space was left clear as if planned for somebody to stand in that exact spot for a photo shoot, how unbelievable fortunate this random choice came to fruition. Pope Francis presented Mahmoud Abbas with a medallion explaining that it represented the “angel of peace destroying the bad spirit of war.” Now the Pope will make saints out of two nuns presenting them as having lived in the state of Palestine despite the truth that they resided and worked in the Province of Greater Syria within the Ottoman Empire and not in any pretend state of Palestine. To make reference to Palestine, Israel, Jordan or Lebanon during this period is simply theater of the absurd. But when have such small inconveniences such as reality and facts gotten in the way of making reference to the Palestinians and their claims against Israel ever caused the slightest of difficulties. Had the Pope really have desired to make reference to any form of Palestine he might have chosen to Canonize as saints some figures from the period when Emperor Hadrian of the Roman Empire renamed all of the “Provincia Judaea” as “Provincia Syria Palaestina” which is far closer to Palestine and did occur during the time of the early Christians though it was slightly before the birth of actual Catholicism. The final slight it has been announced that Pope Francis will be making a treaty with the State of Palestine. The Vatican announced this past week that the final touches were being applied to an accord summarizing the Catholic Church and its life and its activities in Palestine which “will be submitted to the respective authorities for approval ahead of setting a date in the near-future for the signing.”

 

Perhaps a brief summary of the lives of Sister Maria Baouardy and Sister Mary Alphonsine Danil Ghattas is in order. Sister Maria Baouardy received her beatification by St. John Paul II in 1983. She was born into the Melchite Greek Catholic Church in 1846, in a village near Nazareth in the Province of Syria within the Ottoman Empire. Sister Baouardy went on to join the Carmel of Pau in France and was subsequently assigned to India where she founded several convents, before retiring to Bethlehem where she died in 1878. This was quite an accomplishment as she was an illiterate which must have presented Sister Baouardy with great challenges. The Vatican has noted that Sister Baouardy “experienced many sufferings together with extraordinary mystic phenomena” from an early age. Sister Mary Alphonsine Danil Ghattas led a somewhat less travelled life being born in Jerusalem in 1843; she entered the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of the Apparition at the age of fifteen. Sister Ghattas subsequently founded the Congregation of Sisters of the Most Holy Rosary of Jerusalem where she “worked tirelessly to help young people and Christian mothers,” according to statements from the Vatican.

 

In the United Nations Security Council the French delegates will be presenting for consideration a resolution setting the borders for a Palestinian State using the pre Six Day War in June of 1967 boundaries, also called the Green Line, with mutually agreed swaps and to designate Jerusalem as the capital of both Israel and a Palestinian state, a dangerous wording if there ever was one. By making any exchange of territories subject to mutual agreement all Mahmoud Abbas need do is meet every proposal for an exchange of lands and amending the borders with the same silence utilized so efficiently to avoid making any nature of agreement to force Israel to abandon even the main settlement blocks and repatriate almost one million Israelis taking them in homeless and also probably unemployed should they have also worked in their neighborhood or region close to their residence. This would place a financial burden upon Israel which would take decades to recover from and place a hardship beyond measure of the entirety of Israel, but that only makes such a refusal all the more tantalizing. Responding to the information of the French resolution Abbas stated during a Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), “We do not need more decisions that then fail to be implemented. It is known that we have 12 resolutions passed by the Security Council, including resolutions endorsed by America, but despite these calls for de-colonization no progress has been made.” He of course failed to mention why no progress has been made as that would have also meant his taking responsibility for the failure of progress due to his intransigence and refusal to accept any agreement which does not include the replacement of Israel, all of Israel from the River to the Sea, by Palestine and for that area to be voided of any Jewish presence. This is the small truth that has been ignored and will continue to be ignored as it does not fit the agenda that Israel is the impediment to peace. Anything which contradicts the ‘it is all Israel’s fault’ line of reasoning originally endorsed and forwarded for the world to adopt by the Europeans and passively accepted by the United States, especially the State Department, and definitely adopted by the Arab League has made Mahmoud Abbas using the silent treatment and refusal to sign any agreement and also never present in a formal proposal what would be acceptable and gain his signature while permitting the world to assume he merely desires the ‘pre 67 lines with East Jerusalem as its Capital’ when he desires exactly the same as his predecessor Yasser Arafat, the desire of Palestine replacing all of Israel with all its Jews removed or resolved by whatever means prove necessary including another holocaust style genocide. Abbas will gladly and silently allow for the French resolution be applied and forced upon Israel as by refusing to respond to all Israeli entreats he knows the world will force Israel to meet what they believe falsely is exactly what Abbas has agreed with.

 

This agreement they put so much faith in has been fashioned without ever receiving Abbas’s signature or even a whisper of compliance or agreement. They have received his smiling façade which he puts on as part of his suit and tie, the face for the Westerners is understood by every Arab Palestinian as it is not his revolutionary face which they see when he claims that ‘from the River to the Sea Palestine must be free’ and every denunciation of the Jews and how the Israelis will foolishly fall before the requests that he allows the rest of the world to enforce despite his actual statements to Arab audiences as it is impossible to translate Arabic to English and get an accurate translation. Abbas calls for the end of Israel and the death of the Jews in Arabic and the West translates it to match the United States Department of State official translation which reads, ‘Abbas, the great maker of peace, desires minimal amounts from Israel, just the slightest of sacrifice, just the West Bank and East Jerusalem, nothing more and accommodating swaps of land he has said nothing against such things.’ There is truth in their translation when they claim that Abbas has said nothing officially to them against such an agreement, they ignore that he has actually said nothing, nothing for, nothing against, nothing at all. There is no agreement when one side refuses to even grant an answer as to whether or not they will sign such a treaty. But that is where this United Nations Security Council is such a gift to Abbas, it demands Israel to meet the demands of the Western Nations and their belief of what constitutes a fair resolution to the problem, never does it claim to have the agreement from the Arabs, especially Abbas, it just claims that Israel must sacrifice for peace. Abbas has never promised peace, he has only promised misery. His promise is for misery when possible for Israel through the coopting of the Western weakness to stand up to his aggressions and misery for the Arab Palestinians because of the corruption and kleptocrats who feed and gorge themselves on Western monies which they send millions upon millions and even now billions and trillions. They blame Israel because the trillions they have granted to Gaza has not rebuilt or built replacement housing ignoring that almost all the concrete and rebar and other building materials have been confiscated and utilized to rebuild the tunnels even better, deeper, larger, many more in numbers and reaching further under Israel readying for the war this summer which will bring Hamas and Islamic Jihad more supplies for even more and deeper tunnels eventually reaching the depths of, well, you know.

 

What will the West do when the forces under ISIS take over the terror state in Gaza as they have sworn to be their primary responsibility for their forces in the Sinai Peninsula? Will the trillion of Euros and Dollars continue to flow even to ISIS as long as they promise war and destruction on Israel? Of course the funds will flow and attacks upon Israeli civilians including women, children and the elderly and all in between, both Jewish and Arab, Christian and Muslim, any who reside within Israel are legitimate targets. Will such matter or will they ignore to whom the trillion to rebuild the terror infrastructure continues while the attention is on forcing Israel out of Judea and Samaria and Eastern Jerusalem. Never mind that this places the holiest places in all of Judaism outside of the reach of Jewish prayers and they will be too far to see the Jewish tears but they will in the still moments harken to the Jewish sobbings and lamentations as they have always heard and in time there will be an answer and Israel will be able to rejoice the coming of the Mashiach (Messiah), the restoration which His coming promises and the final coming of the Mashiach will bring peace, lasting peace for as long as we can foresee into the future. But those thoughts are the highest of hopes of which we know not their timing. We can pray and attempt to deserve the Mashiach, but we have no way of foreseeing or bringing about this deliverance, His deliverance. Unlike what the Ayatollahs claim they can do which will bring their messiah, by creating a world of conflict where all the cities burn and all peoples suffer the depredations and chaos of all-out war across the entirety of mankind, that is their desire and why they have the need for nuclear weapons, to make the world burn. That is also the aim of Hamas and ISIS and too many others who promise a world in flames on their way to world domination. The desire to rule the world did not die with the Romans, nor did it die with the end of the Crusades or the Ottoman conquest. The desire to rule the world is alive and thriving across much of the Arab world and in Asia and Russia. There may be others who so aspire but the Western world believes such desire has died simply because they have reached the reformation that amongst all its beliefs includes that the destruction accompanying the desire to rule the world makes such undesirable if not also impossible as the weapons required would destroy the world making ruling it a pyrrhic victory.
