As both a father and as a grandfather I am totally outraged at this vulgar barbarity of the cold blooded murder of the young parents in front of their small children but even more so by the murderers carrying out verification of death shots.
As usual I am not surprised but still truly revolted by the world's continual apathy at the death of Jews by those who hate us. It appears that this barbarity is part of our collective Jewish existence on this planet.
When it was believed to be Israelis who perpetrated the attack in arson attack in the village of Duma where a child was killed outright and his parents succumbed to their wounds, every official in Israel strongly condemned the act and Israel's Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu even visited the family in the hospital.
The Falestinian "leader" Mahmoud Abbas has not issued a single condemnation of the couple's murder, and his utter silence in the face of the despicable attack is a typical response of Arabs to that of Jewish lives. What we have heard loud and clear was a senior official from his Fatah movement praising this cold blooded murder.
And as I stated, I am of course outraged at the murder nevertheless I am consistently angered at the gross negligence of those residing in the area of Judea and Shomron to ignore the possibility of these murderous actions.
Ah but of course I see the comments on the social media blaming everyone -
- Bibi and the Israeli Government
- the IDF
- the Border Guards and the Police
- the Shin Bet
- the leftists etc, etc.
As my father once stated when you point your finger at someone remember you have three finger pointing back at you- the thumb points off to the side. So like aiming a rifle before shooting, when you accuse someone else think first since you may miss them.
As we Jewish "settlers" ALL know. For more than 100 hundred years we Zionists, who have had the audacity to return to live in OUR homeland of Eretz Yisrael. We have been forced to acknowledge that the "Arabs of the Mandated Areas" -those who euphemistically refer to themselves as "Falestinians,"are most definitely not your "peaceful" neighbors!
Our long and very blood soaked history has shown that even prior to the foundation of the State of Israel in 1948 the Arabs have wanted to murder us. Their lack of ability to accept that we Jews were here and that this was our land has been their source of deep hatred. As they say; "We love death!"
Back to Judea and Shomron.From past experience anyone who resides among the "Arabs of the Mandated Areas" should know that it is NOT safe to travel on lonely roads at night. Especially in the aftermath of Mahmoud Abbas's speech where he openly declared that "his people" were no longer bound by mutual agreements with Israel. (The so called defunct Oslo Peace Accords of a once hoped for Middle East peace process.)
So why tempt fate?
It was sheer and utter stupidity -not to speak of gross negligence for Eitam and Na'ama Henkin to risk NOT ONLY their lives but the lives of their small children to leave Itzhar at night!
Oh yes as my Religious friends would nod and mumble it is "HaShem's" way.
We ALL know the situation sucks and the "Falestinian Leadership" wants ALL Jews OUT and Judea and Shomron "Judenrein". So murderous attacks on Israeli -read Jewish residents -NOT Settlers! Are going to continue!
So WHY give the murderers easy targets on "Silver Platters"!
It is time to wake up and realize Rav Kahane is not the Prime Minister and Bibi listens only to those money bags in Big Business of the Liberal Fraction of the Likud. He is NOT going to take drastic steps because we Jews live in a world of hypocrits.
Oh yes just how we would love to do what our Arab neighbors do to one another and I hear you!
But we are above all Jews.
"HaShem" chose us and gave us a moral conscience.
As such we are not Nazis, as our detractors scream and yell at us. Neither are we Daesh (ISIS)
It is our superior morality that makes us models for humanity and why we have been despised and hated. All others are jealous of HaShem's love for US dare i say it Jews.
So there you have it we are all stuck with the "Falestinians" and YOU who reside in Judea and Shomron remember you are NOT in the Wild West.
There is no cavalry led by John Wayne or Ronnie Reagan to come to your rescue. Only the stupid sidekick Obama.
You who reside in "Indian Territory" need to remember you are surrounded by vicious barbaric blood thirsty savages who want more than anything your scalps. So wake up and act accordingly
