Israel should banish those who try to murder her

Palestinian Islamists want to eliminate Israel. As Palestinians riot, injure and murder Israeli civilians, it has been urged that Israelis turn the other cheek and go calmly about their business. How sweet!

Sweets for the sweet

Israeli teens








An article at The Jerusalem Post is titled Comment: Facing the ugly truth. It notes that after the murders of three Israeli teens by Palestinian heroes, Israeli vigilantes may have sought revenge by murdering a Palestinian boy. Murder, favored by Palestinians, is not and should not be the Israeli way.

According to PM Netanyahu,

“I would like to send my condolences to the Abu Khder family. I pledge that the perpetrators of this horrific crime, which must be resolutely condemned in the most forceful language. I pledge that the perpetrators of this horrific crime will face the full weight of the law. I know that in our society, the society of Israel, there is no place for such murderers. And that’s the difference between us and our neighbors. They consider murderers to be heroes. They name public squares after them. We don’t. We condemn them and we put them on trial and we’ll put them in prison.[Emphasis added.]

“And that’s not the only difference. While we put these murderers on trial, in the Palestinian Authority, there is continuous incitement for the destruction of the State of Israel. It’s a staple of the official media and the educational system. [Emphasis added.]

“This is an asymmetrical conflict. We do not seek their destruction; they teach a very broad segment of their society to seek our destruction. And that must end. There is too much suffering. There is too much pain.

“We do not differentiate between the terrorists and we will respond to all of them, wherever they come from, with a firm hand. We will not allow extremists from wherever they come to ignite the region and shed more blood.”

It seems unlikely that the family of Mohammed Khder will appreciate the phrasing of PM Netanyahu’s condolences or that many Palestinian terrorists will change their perspectives and ways because of them.

Although vigilante action by Israelis is bad, they are human and it is quite understandable: with rockets being fired frequently into Israel from Gaza, continuing and escalating Palestinian rioting, arson and physical assaults, many are rightfully upset. The linked Jerusalem Post article offers this advice:

The fact that Arab society still doesn’t know how to express itself without violence is an issue that only they can deal with, if they so choose. [Emphasis added.]

Does anyone else remember the advice given years ago to school kids on what to do during a nuclear attack?

Nuke attack hide

It would not have been effective, but there was nothing the kids could have done that would have been. The situation with Israel is different. Should Israelis hide under their desks to await the happy day when their Arab neighbors choose voluntarily to reject violence? Palestinian Arabs — sixty percent of whom have the destruction of Israel as a five year national goal — are highly unlikely to do that. It is equally reasonable to await the happy day when a virulent cancer chooses, voluntarily, to stop metastasizing and get along peacefully within its host’s body. Unless and until ways are found to isolate and then remove violent Palestinians from Israel and keep them out, that cancer will continue to metastasize until Israel dies a lingering and painful death.

In March of 2011, I wrote an article at PJ Tatler titled Palestinian heroes are little worse than venomous snakes. It noted the then recent slaughter of members of the Fogel family in Itamar and satirically offered advice not radically different from that recently given in the linked Jerusalem Post article. Here’s an excerpt:

The many heroes of Palestine have for too long been disparaged in the media.  While these heroes’ efforts to produce true peace will not likely be effective other than for the few Israelis noted above, I look forward to viewing, at YouTube and elsewhere, videos showing the peacefully joyous reactions  of these

residents from the southern city of Rafah [who] hit the streets Saturday to celebrate the terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar where five family members were murdered in their sleep, including three children.

Residents handed out candy and sweets, one resident saying the joy “is a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank.”

Here’s a video of “peacefully joyous reactions” of Palestinian lauding the Fogel family murderers:

Back to my PJ Tatler article,

This brings me to the venomous snakes which want to come into our yard to play with us and with our puppies. In many respects like Palestinian heroes, these pitiably downtrodden snakes are peaceful beings; unless hungry and wanting to assert their natural rights to food, or disturbed after asserting those rights and then merely wanting to relax and bask in the warm sunlight as they also have every right to do, they are harmless. Yet I have sometimes sinned by trying to drive them away or even to kill them (the snakes). May Allah – whose beloved children we all are – hear my confession and have mercy upon me.

Having learned much from Dear Leader Obama, I have resolved to give peace a chance. I am eliminating all remaining (but fortunately ineffective) barriers to snake entry and otherwise making them feel as welcome as my own brothers and sisters. Given enough warmth, affection and puppies to kill they could easily become loyal comrades to comfort me as I slide even further into librul senility.

To help others to understand, and to persuade them to support, my worthy goal of peaceful coexistence, I am hereby demanding that the malicious stories about venomous snakes be removed from all media, that health agencies cease instructing on the prevention and treatment of snakebites and that all schools everywhere revise their curricula to focus, instead of on their own warped misconceptions, on the great good done by our peaceful friends, the venomous snakes. To do other than welcome and provide for them would destroy the peace process I am trying so hard to initiate and to make work.

Despite President Obama’s wise counsel, which I have taken to heart, Israel continues obdurately to pursue her racist and discriminatory follies. If she is to become a civilized, appropriately diverse (but former very small) and therefore peaceful country, she must accept our great president’s enlightened wisdom and do as he has tried so hard to persuade her to do. Israel, in her uniquely contumacious way, has yet to yield. Not once in recent memory has a President of Israel even bowed to a Palestinian statesman!

Israel probably has more Palestinian heroes with whom to deal than I have snakes; the snakes may well be less aggressive and dangerous. Nevertheless, since in my own small way I am making similar efforts with snakes, Israel can do even more.

The situation has worsened since early 2011. The Kerry – Obama – Abbas – Netanyahu “peace process” failed because, with Israel’s “peace partner(s),” it could not have been otherwise. Palestinian violence has increased, as it was no less likely to do if the “peace process” had succeeded.

I do not know how, under Israeli law, to get rid of venomous snakes violent Palestinians and thereafter to keep them out. If there are lawful ways to imprison them for many years (without compensation being paid to them or to their families by the Palestinian Authority or others) and then to banish them from Israel and prevent them from returning, that should be done. If not, the laws should be changed.

Taking such steps would likely cause the “international community” to become even more hostile to Israel than at present. Which is worse? Continuing to try to live peacefully and productively in a snake pit, or tolerating increased international displeasure? Israel may well have to make that unpleasant choice.

    Tom is right. The hatred and destructiveness of the palestinians will destroy both the Israelis and the palestinians. There is no room in palestinian vows against israel and there is no room in ‘never again’. So, for the USA the best immediate solution seems to be to pre-emptively destroy both countries. Perhaps Israelis protest that they should be spared, but that claim is mitigated by their unceasing record of treachery against the USA, spying, lying, killing 34 American sailors on the USS Liberty, etc. Thru their activities in Washington they’ve undermined USA loyalty by outright subornation of politicians, so that many would support Israel before USA.

    The “Rule or ruin” attitude is even spreading in the USA where prominent politicians proclaim that there most important task is to undermine a president they dislike. How odd it is to see blatant racism condoned and promoted 150 years after the end of the civil war.

    We used to say that politics end at the waters edge, but now anything goes.

    Essentially, since you wrote this, Ḥamas went to war with us from their lair in Gaza. it is MY opinion that we should cut off all water, electricity, food, medicine and gas to Gaza, and allow the residents to experience the joys of being war refugees, while we bomb every damned structure in the Strip. It is also my opinion that the village that chose to display a Nazi hakenkreuz flag in Judea, along a main highway, should be destroyed en masse – and that the residents be forced to flee Israel altogether. My government doesn’t have the stomach for VENGEANCE, but we in the Shomron do.

    Be well,

    I don’t think there’s a solution — two state, one state, or no state. Most Muslims of the Middle East will continue to seek the destruction of Israel (and, for many, the death of all Jews), and Israel will continue to resist that outcome. Muslims in other parts of the world, to include those in Europe and the U.S., will also continue to yearn for the destruction of Israel. The only possible outcome is cataclysm.

    • Ruvy Kossover says:

      Tom, what the Muslims think is not all that important. What is important is WHAT WE DO. We MAY have to nuke part of Iraq to cripple this new Caliphate – but frankly, I would rather not see that done. We have a potential ally in Kurdistan, and tossing around nuclear cigars where it could kill Kurds is not in OUR best interest.
