To Scream or To Weep?

I’m not sure which. I feel like doing both.

Let me tell you about just a couple days of last week.

On July 1st:

there was an attempted stabbing attack in Hevron at the Tomb of the Patriarchs.

An Arab terrorist tried to stab people by the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hevron before being shot by nearby IDF and Border Police forces.

The terrorist reportedly approached a Border Police post at an entrance to the site and pulled out a knife before she was shot. No one else was harmed.

The pieceful Falestinians rioted at the Qalandia checkpoint.

Three Border Police officers were lightly wounded by Muslim rioters at Qalandia checkpoint near Jerusalem on Friday afternoon.

The officers were struck by rocks hurled by Arab rioters, who were waiting for permission to enter Israeli territory from the Palestinian Authority, on their way to the Temple Mount’s Al Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem.

Sort of like black lives matter in Columbia MO. Nothing says we are friends, and mean no harm and just want to have a reasonable conversation or go worship at our holy place (filled with rocks and rockets) like stopping a car in a parade or a riot.

The day before on 30th June:

Two people were stabbed at a market in Netanya

Two people have been seriously wounded in a stabbing attack in the coastal Israeli city of Netanya.

Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedics who arrived at the scene in Netanya market said they found a 30-year-old woman in serious condition, and a second victim – a man in his 40s – with moderate injuries.

Both victims were given emergency first-aid treatment before being evacuated to Laniado Hospital.

The terrorist was shot dead at the scene, and was later identified as a resident of the nearby Palestinian Authority city of Tulkarem.

The day before that, on 29th June, under the “you’ve got to be kidding me” category:

Nine Israeli Activists had to be rescued from Ramallah

A group of nine Israeli leftist activists on Wednesday evening had to be rescued from the Palestinian Arab city of Ramallah, after locals attacked one of their vehicles.

The Israelis reportedly entered the city of their own volition to celebrate the nightly breaking of the Ramadan fast with local Arabs. Locals who noticed them hurled rocks and firebombs at one of their cars, which caught fire.

Something to chew on for those who sincerely believe in their “Coexist” bumper stickers. But yeah, this one is funny. No one died.

On July 1st, this is one of the two more horrifying stories I’ve for you:

Father murdered in front of is children

One person was killed and three others wounded in a shooting attack at the Adorayim Junction south of Hevron in Judea.

The fatality has been identified as 40-year-old Michael “Micki” Markrom HY’’D the nearby town of Otniel, who was traveling in his car with his family when it was targeted.

His wife Chavi was seriously wounded in the attack, and was evacuated to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital with multiple gunshot wounds to her upper body.

Two other family members were also wounded in the attack. Paramedics say in addition to the mother of the family, they treated a 13-year-old girl in moderate-to-serious condition suffering from gunshot wounds to her upper body, and a 15-year-old boy who was lightly wounded, presumably from the crash.

In case you don’t remember Otniel is where Dafna Meir HY’’D lived, she was stabbed to death in the doorway of her home, fighting to save her children. And the attack resembled closely to one that occurred last November when Rabbi Yaakov Litman HY’’D and his son Netanel HY’’D were murdered in that attack, as they were traveling with their family.

But for the pieceful Falestinians the activities weren’t over. They attacked the funeral procession.

Even as the funeral procession for Rabbi Michael Mark, terror victim, wound toward Jerusalem, locals would not leave them in peace: Arabs threw a stone from a passing car, striking one of the buses of mourners.

Thirteen year old Hallel-Yaffa Ariel HY’’D was murdered in her bed, in her home. Hallel was an amazing dancer who had preformed just the night before in Jerusalem. Also wounded in the attack was a 31 year old security guard from the town’s security squad. The security squad responded very quickly to the alert that the perimeter had been breached. The terrorist had locked himself in Hallel’s bedroom so he could stab her without being interrupted. He then lay in wait for security squads. Hallel’s father was one of them that came through the door to find his daughter. The terrorist then attacked a 31 year old member of the security squad. The young man is going to lose his eye, but he will live. The terrorist was then killed by the security squad. The young man’s wife works as a volunteer on the MDA ambulance and she ended up being on the ambulance to ride into the hospital with him. This interview is well worth watching. I love this woman’s spirit, and she tells how she happened to be in the ambulance and gives a report on her husband.

I can hear it now, you can’t you just can’t blame a group for the actions of one kid! Very true, I’m not.

Mother of Kiryat Arba terrorist proud of ‘martyr’ son:

“My son is a hero,” she says. “My son died as a martyr defending Jerusalem and the al-Aqsa Mosque. Praise be to God, he is united with the martyrs before him, and he is not better than them. God willing, all of them will follow this path, all the youth of Palestine.”

According to friends and relatives of Dipsh*t (I’m NOT giving his name), he had posted a slew of Facebook statuses in the weeks before the attack expressing his desire to die as a martyr. In some of them, he said he wanted to avenge his cousin, who was killed as he carried out a car-ramming attack near Kiryat Arba. One soldier was lightly injured in that attack, before other troops shot and killed the attacker.

Apparently this sort of thing does NOT violate Facebook community standards. Only pro-Israel, Conservative and some Second Amendment stuff violates the sensitive Facebook community standards.

Army arrests sister of Hallel’s killer

Like her mother, the murderer’s sister also publicly praised her brother’s act, and called for others to follow in his footsteps and kill “the accursed Jews.”

IDF arrests brothers of Hallel’s killer

During the night IDF forces arrested two brothers of 17-year-old Dipsh*t, the terrorist who murdered Hallel-Yaffa Ariel in Kiryat Arba.

Not exactly an aberrancy is old Dipsh*t?

So how do kids, a lot of them, who grow up to be adults and then parents turn out this evil and deluded?

One choice is the appeasement crowd.

An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last. ~~Winston Churchill

I would put the liberals and those who call the parts of Israel known as Judea and Samaria “occupied territory” in this group. Failing to learn from the withdrawal of the Gaza strip they think the peace will come if Israel just gives in.

How this works in real life.

Only muslims are allowed to pray on the Temple Mount. Non muslims are not allowed to pray. Now this little drama plays out in variations every year on Ram-a-damn. The muslims store rockets, Molatov cocktails, firebombs, stones in the holy mosque. Then when anyone other than a muslim attempts to go to the Temple Mount the muslims pitch a hissy and attack them screaming, yelling and assaulting them with whatever potential weapons of murder they have stashed in the holy mosque. Then non-muslims are banned from the Temple Mount. Hissy fit success. So, this year as in the past, Netanyahu ordered the police to give in to the arab hissy fit and barred non-muslims despite the fact the Police had held their own and visitors were still being allowed up. In an immediate spirit of cooperation engendered by this cave in of principles, the pieceful Falestinians moved over and began to throw stones down at those in prayer at the Western Wall, the Kotel, onJune 28th. In real life, the appeasement thing doesn’t work well.

There’s the ever apparent media bias. And

CNN omits Judea and Samaria in report on terror

CNN publishes updated map of places in which terror attacks took place this month, fails to include attacks on Judea and Samaria.

Well, the UN chief Ban Ki Moon has been in Israel, maybe that’s helped?

Falestinian schools hide Judenrein maps during Moon’s visit. Then denies they were ever hidden. The maps showing no state of Israel, only Falestine. Of course UNRWA denies they have anything to do with any maps. Just because there is no longer an Israel on the map, does that really mean so much? UNRWA creating angry, entitlement, hate filled children for ages. Encouraging them to hate Judeo-Christian values and the people. Pretty much like the average university here.

Well, but what about Ban Ki’s visit? Help?

On June 29th–UN chief blasts ‘occupation’, calls Israel to work for peace. Not so much.

June 30th– The UN’s Middle East Quartet: As terror strikes Israel, Quartet set to criticize ‘settlements’

Settlements, that’s Judea and Samaria to humans. The UN doesn’t fit that category very often. The UN doesn’t think Jews should have houses being built in Israel.

Nor does the US State Department. From 6 July.

State Department blasts Israeli ‘systematic land seizures’

The State Department on Tuesday issued a scathing condemnation of Israel’s plans to build new housing units in Maale Adumim and in Jerusalem.

“If it’s true, this report would be the latest step in what seems to be a systematic process of land seizures, settlement expansions, and legalizations of outposts that is fundamentally undermining the prospects for a two-state solution,” said State Department spokesman John Kirby of the plans, which were announced Sunday following last week’s terrorist attacks against Israelis in Judea and Samaria.

July 4th— Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon: European applause killed Hallel-Yaffa Ariel

Danon drew a clear line between the horrific murder of Hallel-Yaffa Ariel last week and the speech of Mahmoud Abbas to the European Parliament a week earlier.

In that speech, Abbas revived an old blood libel and claimed that some rabbis had called on the government of Israel to poison Palestinian water supplies. Instead of immediate condemnation, the elected European representatives of democratic nations responded with loud applause.

Danon writes, “We were all shocked. How can he say that? Lie to the European Parliament like that? This is a blood libel! But that was not the worst. We well know the constant lies and incitement of Abbas, head of the Palestinian Authority. Every morning we again see Abbas’ praise for terrorists through the Palestinian education system and state-run television.”

“But the main thing on this occasion was not the incitement, but the applause.”

Danon claims that such constant incitement turns teenage Palestinians into murderous monsters. In the twisted mind of a 17-year-old terrorist, the claim that rabbis want to poison the wells is justification enough to kills a young girl in her bed. But that does not necessarily mean that he will carry out such an attack.

“But when a monster like this then hears the applause of the Members of Parliament, his perverted ideology is confirmed by those who should be the most moral in the world. [He thinks that] if they cheer like this, they will also cheer for me.”

And not only that, they get paid. Yes indeed folks, the PA pays it’s terrorists to kills Jews, and whoever else is handy. If the IDF demolishes their house? No biggie the PA pays for a newer, bigger, fancier one to be built. This doesn’t seem to bother Ban Ki or the Meddle East Quartet. Is there any other country on the face of the earth that the UN feels so compelled to try and dictate policy?

So, where does the money come from that the PA uses to pay terrorists? Where does the power and encouragement backing it and Hamass originate?

Youth or Terrorist
Youth or Terrorist

You gave it to them. You and your family and friends. You gave up eating out once a week and paying to have your car washed and did it yourself at home. You gave up that cable sports channel, bigger cellphone data plan so that you could pay Dipsh*t to kill little 13 year old Hallel in her bed.

Do you think I’m making this up?

June 30thDear Diaspora Jews: Your money is killing us

But please do not simply make do with a deluge of angry or sad social media posts. You can act. In fact, you have a moral duty to act and not stand idly by as the blood of your brothers and sisters continues to flow.

Because the bloodthirsty terrorist who murdered young Hallel was, at least in some part, indoctrinated and encouraged courtesy of your own tax dollars – or pounds, or euros.

The Palestinian Authority is funded almost entirely by state donors, its most generous benefactors including none other than the United States of America, and a host of European states, chief among them the United Kingdom.

It is by now the worst-kept secret in the international aid industry (and what a lucrative industry that is) that a large portion of that money goes towards not just incitement and indoctrination – whether in schools and mosques, or official PA youth clubs and sporting events – but directly into the pockets of Palestinian terrorists and their families.

Your tax money is essentially bankrolling the murderers of our children.

And they’re not even shy about it.

Just recently, at an iftar meal to break the Ramadan fast in Ramallah, PA “Prime Minister” Rami Hamdallah vowed to increase spending to support “heroic” terrorists. This support, he boasted, included increasing the monthly wage paid to every terrorist imprisoned for carrying out an attack, as well as upping the cash prize awarded to every Palestinian family which offers up one of its children as a “martyr.”

The family of Hallel’s killer, 17-year-old Dipsh*t of Bani Naim, near Hevron, will also be paid by the PA for his despicable actions. With money from your back pocket. Just know that.

But that is truer still when it comes to the Palestinian Authority. Your governments fund them directly.

So take action, right now. Write to your local member of parliament or congress; to your ministers and prime ministers and presidents, and ask for accountability. Ask them to cut off funding to the Palestinian Authority until it can prove that not a penny will go towards funding and encouraging terrorism.

Write to your communal leaders, and to your local pro-Israel organizations, and demand they take the lead in rallying and lobbying for accountability and an end to your tax money funding Palestinian terrorism.

Spend at least as long as you took to vent on social media to write to your elected representatives and to others who can make a difference.

Please. It’s the least you could do.

Even the NY Post blasted the use of US taxpayer dollars being used to kill Israeli soldiers and children on July 1st.

“Meanwhile, hundreds of millions flow to the PA from the West, including America. Which means US tax dollars are, in effect, going to pay for terrorist acts,” adding “And here you thought we were fighting terror”.

The editorial board called upon congress to rescind funding for the Palestinian Authority, and thus “cut off US funding for Palestinian terror.”

“Congress should do all it can to curb the practice”.

“Sending US tax dollars to the PA, only to see them go to reward terror, is a moral obscenity.”

Look at the dates on these articles. All of this happened within a few days of each other.

A lot of this goes back to somethings many wise people have said. Rights come from G-d, not man. Moshe Feiglin talked about it in his interview and his recent webinar. Many Second Amendment people have pointed this out. We are our own first responders. Moshe said that he wanted Israelis to remember the real, original concept of freedom. I would like many Americans who have been indoctrinated otherwise to learn this truth. No matter how close the security squads, no matter how good, they may not get there in time. True freedom is Israel does what is best for Israel and is not dictated to by the UN, an anti-Israel US president or any Meddle East committee. No matter what Israel does she will not win their approval. They do not want to give their approval. They want her to live by their rules till she is obliterated. The same with US gun owners, peaceful law-abiding citizens just wanting to live their lives. The political parties, the NRA and other such type of Second Amendment organizations are willing to bargain and compromise our rights. You can’t appease these people. It will not work, and we will be in a deeper hole than we were before.

If Jews can not live safely in Israel as Jews, but instead are the target of US, EU & UK sponsored terrorism because they are Jews??? And this is what so many do not understand, or do not care about. This has nothing to do with territories, this has everything to do with the latest attempt at genocide. But no one wants to call it that. No one wants to admit that in this day and age such a thing could happen again. So heads are put under pillows, the media whitewashes, the politicians lie and excuse. And people bleed and die in their beds.

So much pain, sorrow and suffering. And we paid for it, we made it possible.

Do I scream or do I weep? Because my heart is breaking.

  1. And again, I stand silently and weep with the Nation of Israel, and all of it’s people, at the atrocity that continues to be rained down against them, by murderous terrorists, and I think, when will America cry out, ” Enough! ” Because, make no mistake, if this country stood up and said no more, the violence would soon end. In much the same way, if we took that same stand at home, the violence would stop here as well. But the leftist politicians and their followers simply don’t have the will to do what it takes to bring an end to these animals and the violence that they sow.
    Once the mindset were allowed to take over that we would not stand idly by and accept such depravity as normal and expected, but instead, we would push back and meet force with greater force, and mete punishment out with extreme impunity, then you would begin to see a change in behavior on the part of the violent extremists, both here in America, but also in Israel on the part of the Palestinian murderers. And rest assured that America is the one who must take the lead in this. It is not enough to leave Israel to fend for herself. The whole world knows that the U.S. is the worlds super power, for better or for worse. And if we were to flex our muscles, from a place of strength, instead of where we have been for 8 years, then the rest of the world, no matter who they are, would certainly take notice. To rely on the U.N., and Ban Ki Moon, for anything, is folly, and the civilized world should know that. They can’t even get food distribution right.
    I have no cures for the sickness that is in the middle east as far as the murderous Palestinians are concerned. I can’t even understand how the liberals in the U.S. are able to turn a blind eye to everything that goes on over there. And many of the elitists are Jewish, if the truth is told. It simply is too much to understand. I do know one thing, though, and that is that as individuals we must stand as strong as we possibly can. Both for ourselves and for each other. We must at all times be prepared to fight, again for ourselves and for each other, for there will come a day, and perhaps soon, when we are called on to stand up and be counted.

    1. Unfortunately, as near as I can tell, most Americans are verging on rooting for the Falestinians. They won’t wake up, which is a good thing, because in their present state of mind, if they did, it’d be all over for Israel.

    2. You’ve proven that you are a moral and conscientious soul, pigpen. To understand it requires one to commune with evil. You, and thank the L-rd, I, will never understand it.

      “[T]hese animals and the violence that they sow” are useful to our self proclaimed masters. All their souls are tortured even now with much, much worse to come.

  2. Those few days you mentioned, seem, sadly, to be nothing at all out of the ordinary.

    Israel is the most obvious target of Jihad. In the minds of any Muslim who is at all observant, it’s a Kafir invasion of the Umma, that must be repulsed; it is a duty to Allah to do so, either by direct action or funding it.

    Why the Hell the US is helping fund it…is beyond me. Other than the PC crowd making policy; the PC crowd will support anything that hurts established Western Civiization. Radical, off the deep end trigglypuff SJW feminism? Sure! Islam, despite its abuse and mutilation of women? Sure! Never mind the apparent inconsistency; it’s not an inconsistency, they’re consistently supporting foes of civilization.

    I guess I need to thump my head on the desk again.

  3. It is Israel today but does anyone doubt that it will not be here also if we continue on the path we are on and I see no getting off this path with the direction most all of our leaders & institutions are headed.

    If history has taught us one thing it should be that those that survive have to fight for their survival against those that will enslave them, sometimes they win and sometimes they lose, but those that don’t fight at all end up with a free ride on a cattle car for sure!

    Prepare yourself; your family, your friends, your neighbors, your tribe, and all that will listen because it is headed our way folks and it may be coming a lot quicker than any of us imagine.

    Your survival is not dependent on how much money you have nor how big & strong you are but more-so IMHO on how much will you have to survive and how far you are willing to go to achieve it in the preparation you do before the SHTF!

  4. Thank you all for the beautiful, thoughtful comments. I just hope that by passing along such sad and disheartening columns that it gives caring people information that may come in handy. To know these things for discussions and also, it IS a crystal ball to the future. As Europe which has so strongly condemned Israel for attempting to survive is now finding out.

    And the madness continues.
    ZOA: U.S. condemnations of terror biased against Israel

    ZOA compares official U.S. condemnations of terrorism around the world to be blatantly biased against Israel.
    http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/214606
    dated just today.
    Today I listened to a radio broadcast of Walter’s World, and there was something in it I would bet many of U.S. don’t know, it sounded very much like the US government is attempting to blackmail Israel on housing for Jews. And I’m betting that doesn’t make the news in the US. Is there ANY other nation on the face of the earth that the US, the EU, the UK attempt to tell how to run it’s affairs? I mean my goodness! Look at the countries with a horrible history of human rights, look at what’s happening to Jews and Christians in ANY other country in the Middle East, they are being slaughtered, and which country do they go after? Israel, the one Jewish state. The one country where Jews and Christians are NOT slaughtered by the government. And no one sees that as a REALLY REALLY bad omen or the least bit anti-Semitic?
    You are all correct of course, the time is coming. May G-d guard and guide us.

    1. Actually, I did hear about the housing situation, but, I don’t watch “the news.”

      Man in court, US mountain west, charged with fishing without a license;” I don’t work, been living off the land my entire adult life, never had a problem before.” judge complains about procedure and rules and fines and whatever, man looks the judge right in eye; “I have a right to feed myself. Do I or don’t I have a right to live?” judge throws the case out. True story, unrelated, maybe.
      There is a higher law.

    But I am sure all of this will end if us so-called law abiding citizens was to just give up our guns!!!!

    1. For a split instant I thought you were talking about divesting myself of firearms, and I was thinking, “uh….HELL NO!”
