Atrocity Rocks Israel


Pages: 1 2

And later on Sunday Palestinian Media Watch released another bulletin. This one discloses that just three weeks ago, PA TV broadcast a tribute to “martyrs”—and it included a terrorist who, in a 2002 attack, murdered three Israeli high school students in the very same settlement, Itamar.

In addition to complaining about PA incitement, the Israeli government announced on Sunday that it was building a few hundred new housing units in large settlements that Israel would supposedly retain in a peace deal with the Palestinians. The UN hardly waited for the members of the Fogel family to be buried before condemning the move.

Indeed, given the blasé media reaction and de rigueur, none too hasty condemnations by world leaders, it is hard to imagine that Friday night’s atrocity will have much effect on the ongoing, relentless pressure on Israel to cede land to the Palestinians. The question is—with the attack already perceived as a milestone and new revelation of the depths of Palestinian barbarity—what effect it will have in Israel itself.

Netanyahu has painted himself into a difficult corner by, on the one hand, frequently declaring his eagerness to negotiate with the Palestinians on creating a state for them and, on the other, denouncing their “wild incitement [that] ends up prompting the murder of children.” Clearly, setting up a murderously hateful state alongside Israel could not be a rational, responsible step. Whether Netanyahu will adopt a more truthful, assertive approach remains to be seen.

As for the Israeli population, the attack has had an unmistakable impact and takes its place beside other dire epiphanies—the 2000 lynch of two soldiers in Ramallah, the 2002 Park Hotel massacre, the post-disengagement relentless rocket fire from Gaza, and others—that have led the population away from the dovish illusions of the 1990s and toward greater strength and realism. In that regard, if Netanyahu takes a flintier tack—even if its means defying Obama—he will have Israel behind him.

    he will have America behind him too…just not America's current president.

    • StephenD

      And why not the current President? We Americans should find a way to force his hand in this. I can't stand the condemnation we hear around the world about a house being built but the slaughter of children deserves merely a mention. Not good enough! I want the world to know in no uncertain terms with actions that follow (suspension of all aid, etc.) Their training of school children to hate Israel and Jews must end NOW. Their celebrating the death of innocent people makes them an associate of the crime itself. This must be addressed forcefully! I am outraged that the filthy UN has so little to say or do about this. Move in UN troops to remove all their school books that even hint at Israel being an enemy. There must be something America can do. To a person, everyone I speak with condemns such actions but has no venue in which to influence its change. I say, we do have a venue, it is the election box! In the mean time we have the power of prayer.

      • http://frontpage.com Nico

        I agree with your outrage. The barbarism of the palestinians has reached new levels with this carnage. The whole society is corrupt and debased, their celebration of death is sub-human. You say move in UN troops? They're useless and impotent, governed by people who are on the side of the palestinians. Obama isn't going to say or do anything if it means to be on the side of something other than muslims (jihadists included). He's an anti-semite like his spiritual leader Jeremiah Wright, like Farrakhan. If I'm Israel, I'd expect nothing but a knife in the back from Obama and Clinton, both anti-semites. Remember who was the most frequent guest in the Clinton White House? Arafat. Pray that 2012 comes quickly and that we get rid of this abominable terrorist facilitator in the WH.

        You can't "force the hand" of someone on the wrong side of everything. Obama cares for nothing but Obama.

  • Chezwick_Mac

    The deliberate murder of children and an infant is an unimaginable atrocity…but just as bad was the mass celebration of these murders by the populace of Gaza, giving absolute confirmation to David's contention in his recent speech at Brooklyn that the Palestinians have reached a level of civilizational depravity unmatched in recent times. He received a firestorm of criticism for the incendiary quality of his words (even mild criticism from me)….but the fact remains, what he spoke was absolutely true.

    The world should recoil at the mere mention of the Palestinians and their lust for innocent blood. Instead, they're the cause celebre of academics, artists, and so-called intellectuals around the globe. It is a sad commentary on the state of humankind.

    David's anger at Brooklyn may have preceded this atrocity, but it was a righteous anger….one every human being with a shred of morality should share.

    • William_Z

      It would be wonderful if it was an “unimaginable atrocity” but someone not only imagined it, they acted on it. It’s time for good people in the world to realize that there is nothing, which is ‘unimaginable’ to evil people.

      • Chezwick_Mac

        Amen.

  • http://www.fx-exchange.com/ Bowmanave

    I don't know if boycotting it is the right idea – this allows the supporters of Israel to claim that Palestinians are not interested in peace. Perhaps a more creative approach could be found?

    • stern

      Excuse me – are you saying the Palestinians ARE interested in peace? If so, how do you explain their refusal to recognize Israel as the Jewish state, their adamant insistence on the bogus "right of return" (code for the demographic destruction of Israel) and their ongoing and well documented incitement in schools, mosques and their media?

      These are not the actions of a people "interested in peace".

  • Bear From Russia

    Hi all,

    Yestoday there were big elections to Russian local parlaments. It is not a pleasure to say it, but this lections were extremely dirty and corrupted. The "bear" party of officials and thiefs cheated greatly. There is a video on youtube made by spy cam where officials of this party in Tatarstan region discuss how they gonna cheat. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vBbABrf1GfI
    maybe some of you can share this video among mass media. I know many of you are used to blame Russia in all troubles of the world, but now you can really help the democracy in my country.

    • ziontruth

      "I know many of you are used to blame Russia in all troubles of the world,…"

      Not me. I've stood with Russia in spirit since Beslan. I just wish the leaders of Russia realized selling to Iran can only bite them in the hindquarters one day, but I have little hope kleptocratic rulers will see beyond their steady flow of cash. Regardless, I support Russia's hammering of Chechnya, and I hope Russia's leaders will have the sense to stop condemning Israel when we finally do the same to our own local jihadists.

    • Fred Dawes

      50 percent of all guys in the once great Russian Army are muslims why is that happening? within 20 years old mother Russia will disappear into the evil of the muslims world, if you want to save something fight muslims to the end.

  • Anthony

    This evil act is truly worthy of the wrath of the Allmighty himself. If ever a people deserve hellfire, it is the Palestianians AND their useful idiot enablers.
    That being said,

    I cannot think of a more savage, barbaric, and hate intoxicated people anywhere on the face of this Earth. Coupled with their ignorance, AND their shamelessness, it defies logic that they are viewed with potential and sympathy from any decent human being anywhere.

    I do believe God will judge their black hearts accordingly when the time comes.

  • JerusalemTalmidim

    It's time to call a spade a spade. It was the Palestinians' culture of violence and hatred that led directly to this attack. Things were too peaceful for too long and sooner or later their true colors were going to come out. Our leaders need to be the first ones to call them out on this and work to make a change. If we can get Israel to freeze settlements, we can stop the Palestinians from teaching their children hatred.

    I can't say why we haven't been focusing on Palestinian incitement to murder, even though it's been going on for so long, but Dore Gold has a theory you may want to check out: http://jerusalemcenter.wordpress.com/2011/03/14/w

  • SHmuelHaLevi

    It has been their modus forever. They have committed lynchings, mass murders, murder of children and even murder of unborn.
    We do no need to say much more other than we also know who are those that arm those beasts, force our people to live "side by side" with such filth.
    All of them must be set aside from consideration even if that means that no"relations" exist between the STATE of ISRAEL and those cesspools.

  • Chezwick_Mac

    Shmuel is absolutely right. Whether it was Egyptian commandos infiltrating into Israel from Gaza in the 50s…or the Palestinians murdering children as happened the other day, the deliberate targeting of non-combatants has been the one constant from the Arab side since the birth of Israel 63 years ago.

    I suppose the Muslims are just trying to live out the true meaning of their creed. After all, the Quran itself is one of the planet's earliest written exponents of terrorism, decapitation and mutilation…(8:12/13: "I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, strike off the very tips of their fingers")

  • kafir4life

    If the palestinian who killed this family is muslim, thn his actions are understandable and expected. You see, it seems these muslims attempt to emulate this disgusting sack of sub-human filth named mohamat that allegedly lived over 1000 years ago. This mohamat (he was a pedophile, murderer, and liar) made up a pretend moon god, and later wrote a terror guide followed today by mohamatens (the name given to followers of mohamat) in his own feces, something that these muslims really really like. It turns out that they have a fear of pigs and dogs, and after much research, it turns out it's not fear, it's respect. mohamats mother was a pig, and his followers are dogs.

    Any muslims care to dispute? No? didn't think so.

    Truth.

      What we forget is muslim murdered 30 million Europeans for over 300 years after the death of that so called Prophet.

  • Elder Zion

    The Israelis are not learning the lessions of the murders. Take Ehud Barak (who Bibi appointed) and also take Tsipi Livni — these are quotes after the knifings of that family:

    "Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that despite the attack, Israel needed to continue to do everything possible to bring the Palestinians back to the negotiating table.

    "It is important to continue the peace process, because the world will no longer let us rule over another people," Barak said.

    "Opposition leader Tzipi Livni cautioned against using the attack in Itamar for political gain. In a speech in Tel Aviv, she criticized Netanyahu's calls for the international community and the Palestinians to issue stronger condemnations of the attack.

    "It is not enough to call for the world to criticize terror," Livni said. "Our ability to gain legitimacy to fight terror depends on our attempts to reach an agreement with pragmatic elements."

    • WildJew

      It's a disgrace that Netanyahu has this man as his defense minister. He should never have been appointed in the first instance.

    • NStahl

      Agreed. It appears that the current Isreali has a.) a total disconnect from reality, and b.) absolutely no intent of protecting "their" people. I'm not just talkin about Labor here.

      It is time for the Isrealis to cowboy up (beef properly raised and slaughtered is Kosher, after all). They have to hammer the muslim "Palestinians" into the ground. Issue a letter of reprisal, then hit the village to which the perp's trail led with enough 155 mike mike to wipe it off the map. Then do the same to the City of Ramah, where the savages celebrated these murders in the streets. Finally, follow Jordan's lead and expel the so-called "Palestianians." Enough is enough.

      The Isreali government's refusal to do its core job of defending the civilized people in the country is the primary reason I absolutely forbad the wife and child from making aliya. Their lives would be in too much danger given the dereliction of Isreal's governing class.

      The Israeli Jewish Left has, as that famous saying goes, learned nothing and forgotten nothing. They make an ostrich look observant in comparison.

      "Defense Minister Ehud Barak said that despite the attack, Israel needed to continue to do everything possible to bring the Palestinians back to the negotiating table."

      Turn the other cheek, in other words.

      "It is important to continue the peace process, because the world will no longer let us rule over another people." (Emphasis mine.)

      Utterly, abjectly unfit to be in any position of power in the Jewish State. Least of all Minister of Defense. A scandal that screams to high heaven. He does not have even the minimal integrity of Avrum Burg, who at least followed his anti-Zionist deterioration to its logical conclusion and left Israel to live in the Eurosoviet Union.

  • BS77

    There are no "Palestinians"….just land hungry Arabs. The land of Palestine used to be synonmous with the land of Israel, the land of Judea, Samaria and all of Israel. There should be no Palestinian state….unless these barbarians wish to live in Jordan, Syria or Saudi Arabia. Stand with Israel. Let them protect themselves from the seemingly endless terror attacks, murders and violence. The Arabs want to destroy Israel….They have thousands of times the land area of Israel already, but can't stand a pluralistic state that welcomes Christians, Jews and Muslims, is democratic, modern and diverse…so the endless propaganda about apartheid, about settlements and those idiotic "peace talks". It's all rubbish….the fact is, the Arabs want everything…they can't stand Israel being in their midst.

    • ziontruth

      Anti-Zionism is a cause of injustice. That's why the Marxist Left supports it, just as they support all manner of unjust causes, such as the Castros in Cuba, the fall of the nation-state everywhere to multiculturalism, the assembly-line slaughter of the unborn and, last but not least, the oppression of Islamic imperialism.

      Victor, when you post fictionalized quotes like the one about Barack Obama, it makes you as incendiary as those who preach hatred toward Jews.

      This is a corruption of a quote from Obama's book The Audacity of Hope. It is from a section that talks about the concerns of immigrants who are American citizens. The real quote, in context: "Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction."

  • USMCSniper

    The Muslims have chosen the rules of the game. Let them know in no certain terms what "Never Again" means. As for the Palestinians, it is a matter of record that Palestinians strap munitions on their own women and children and send them out on homicide-suicide missions to murder other innocent Jewish women and children in markets, restuarants, on school buses, and in their homes. The Palestinians in their own words and by their actions are committed to the genocide of the Jewish people therefore, have foreited their rights to even exist at all let alone having a UN and US sanctioned terrorist state of their own.

    • ziontruth

      There is no need to call on the Holocaust for knowing what must be done. Jewish Law is very clear on this:

      1) Lay siege to their cities.
      2) Once a city has surrendered, provide a window of time for any civilian (disarmed) to flee it to outside the Land of Israel. Make sure it is so.
      3) After the window of time is passed, destroy the city.

      This is how HaShem commanded the Israelites to take the Land of Israel. This is the Jewish way of warfare as given in the sanctioned interpretations. Consequently, it is moral and binding. All that is needed is a leadership that will take upon itself this duty.

    I had figured that the horror of the Itmar massacre would jolt leftie media into expressing some revulsion over that which it purports to care so deeply- man's inhumanity to man. I scoured HuffPo, the Dailies: Kos and Beast today and could find not a single mention in any of these publications about this heinous, sickening act of such brutality.

    The complete lack of attention to this incident by the leftist press only goes to show that when the victims of such intentional depravity are Jews, the act is not worthy of reporting, much less condemning. The death of a family of Jews, regardless of age or the savagery with which they were dispatched, merits nothing by the leftist press.

    The indifference of the leftie media to this butchery, its complete and willful ignorance to this horror, negates any notion that the left is concerned with anything other than serving as the mouthpiece for Jew killers and anti-semites.

    "Clearly, setting up a murderously hateful state alongside Israel could not be a rational, responsible step."

    Countries are devising plots against Israel that cannot thwart the purposes of the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. This God will let the opposition stack up against His purposes – all the while leading them to their own slaughter. Israel as a nation will suffer due to unbelief, but the opposition will be terrified and consumed by a supernatural rage that cannot be surpassed. This in the other book. Instead of celebrating, the opposition should be weeping for themselves and for their own children.

    ISLAM A RELIGION OF PEACE

    A FEW TEARS FOR
    RUTH AND UDI FOGEL
    YOAV, ELAD & HADAS

    BY

    ROBERT HARKINS

    On Friday, March 11, 2011 one or more Palestinian terrorists broke into an Israeli home on the West Bank and knifed to death Ruth and Udi Fogel. They savaged their sons Yoav age 11 and Elad 3 years old—and at last, tragically, they stabbed to death Hadas in her crib, a girl-child new to life by just three months. An Israeli army officer stone faced and hardened to the ways of death was heard to say “…that the children were literally slaughtered. This is one of the most brutal attacks we’ve ever seen.” Even for Israelis, subjected to a tsunami of terror over the past decade, the stabbing to death of a three-month-old infant was something new.”

    I rest my theme upon the following points:

    1.Excepting the odd, aberrant and irrational human being present in every culture, Americans believe that Islam as practiced by the great majority of Muslims is as much a religion of peace as is Christianity. However, a minority of Muslims, now and in decades past, is engaged in murderous, calculated and unspeakable violence. No one may claim the right to efface or revise this truth simply to conform history to the nihilistic mandates of diversity, cultural relativism or political correctness.

    2.That Islam is a religion of peace or that most Muslims are peace loving is irrelevant to the fact of Islamic terrorism. Therefore, when Muslim terrorists with a prayer to God upon their lips kill and maim only a sycophant will offer the platitude that Islam is a religion of peace. So what! The dead are dead. The slain will not rise to life again. Americans must still destroy the ambitions of Muslim terrorists Al Qaeda, the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorists capable of knifing to death the Jews Ruth and Udi Fogel, their two boys and baby girl. After all, what comfort may we give the surviving children of Ruth and Udi Fogel. Shall we say to them that Islam is a religion of peace?

    3.It is false to say that Jihad describes the religious struggle to perfect one’s moral character. In fact, Al Qaeda wages jihad to “1.Spread Islam throughout the world (with or without the consent of the occupants) and 2. To Destroy Israel and any country it regards as affiliated with her – specifically the United States, Canada, Britain, Australia, and even France.”

    4.Terrorist front groups, CAIR for example, employ the instruments of political correctness, to defame as Islamophobic Americans working to defeat the objectives of Al Qaeda, and the Muslim Brotherhood in America and Israel. Al Qaeda, and other Muslim terrorist groups, justify the commission of unspeakable atrocities, in the United States, Israel, England, Spain, and elsewhere, upon the religious principles of Islam. In this strategy the American Leftist is their ally.

    In light of Al Qaeda’s murder of several thousand Americans before and since 9/11, and its terrorist conspiracies to murder additional tens of thousands of Americans— conspiracies so far discovered and dismantled— the following facts are undisputable.

    5.Al Qaeda is a terrorist organization. Its membership is almost exclusively Muslim. Its terrorist attacks on Americans, Europeans and Jews are still financed through Muslim terrorist front groups posing as charities. Many thousands of Muslims, who are not terrorists sympathize with the strategies and objectives of Al Qaeda.

    6.No one who is rational disputes the American government’s conclusion that Al Qaeda is now recruiting American Muslims into its ranks so as to facilitate the killing of Americans.

  • ROBERT HARKINS

    We recall as if it were a recurring nightmare that on the morning of September 9, 2001, 19 Muslim terrorists, after overcoming their flight crews, flew two planes into the Twin Towers and a third plane into the Pentagon. American passengers prevented the terrorists from flying a fourth plane to their target; the plane crashed, killing the crew, all passengers and the terrorists.

    As the Mid East learned of the mass murder of Americans, Palestinian crowds gathered in the streets to dance, pray, and to celebrate Al Qaeda’s “victory” over America, the Great Satan. By evening of that same day, in Europe and America, the likes of Colorado’s Ward Churchill—their numbers are legion— preached to their warped choirs variations of Churchill’s theme: That on 9/11, the American Eichmanns in the Twin Towers and in the halls of the Pentagon got just exactly what they deserved.

    At hearings, initiated by Republican Congressman Peter King, a bereaved Muslim father testified that his son, once excited about the American Dream, (he wanted to go to Harvard), was indoctrinated by Al Qaeda terrorists, traveled to Somalia for training and was killed as he engaged in terrorist activities.

    A congresswoman waved a copy of the Constitution, and sotto voce accused Congressman King and others of racism because they were not also investigating Christians, Environmental terrorists, Skin Heads and the Ku Klux Klan. The protagonists of this attack offered little evidence to suggest that Christians, Environmentalists, Skin Heads or Ku Klux Klaners are flying planes into towers or inciting their kin to murder Americans. In fact, it is the Muslim terrorist and the Muslim state that has perpetrated the most devastating attacks on Americans, over the last two decades.

    On November 5, 2009, American Muslim Nidal Malik Hasan, an American soldier, and terrorist aficionado while stationed at Ft. Hood Texas, donned Muslim clothing, and shouting Alahu Ackbar, now a Islamic terrorist war cry, shot and killed 13 soldiers and wounded 29 others. The Obama Administration immediately closed ranks to engage in the sycophancy first pitched by former President Bush when he informed Americans days after the slaughter of 911 that Islam is a religion of peace.

    President Bush is right of course, but so what! Christianity is also a religion of peace. Nevertheless, it conducted an inquisition for several hundred years and as the Renaissance flowered in Europe popularized the execution of “witches.” The women indicted, starved, tortured and finally executed were plain, innocent and terrified. Church bureaucrats however, confident in their ownership of God, slept well knowing they had saved and purified the souls of women once corrupt with diabolical powers. Requiescat in Pace. Tragically, the fanatic’s resort to religion so as to further his insatiate hunger for power and self-aggrandizement is as old as the pyramids—and as modern as the Internet.

    As Hasan’s slaughter of Americans hit the news Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, right out of the box, urged Americans not to engage in anti-Muslim sentiment simply because the government—in a failure of security for which FBI employees would later be reprimanded—permitted an American Muslim terrorist to maim and slaughter American soldiers. Of course, while Ms. Napolitano is correct in stating that Hasan does not represent the Muslim faith, he certainly did a good job of representing the Muslim terrorist with whom he was enthralled, empathetic and in regular contact.

    Chief of Staff Gen. George W. Casey, Jr., even as relatives of the dead and dying were caught up in grief, expressed the politically correct lunacy that the slightest dent in the cult of diversity would actually be worse than Hasan’s murder of soldiers at Ft. Hood. "I'm concerned,” he exclaimed, “that this increased speculation could cause a backlash against some of our Muslim soldiers … Our diversity, not only in our Army, but in our country, is a strength. And as horrific as this tragedy was, if our diversity becomes a casualty, I think that’s worse." I am certain Casey’s words were a comfort to the families who still grieve the savage death of the husband, wife, son or daughter who fell to Hasan’s gun, an American Muslim terrorist who commenced his murder with a prayer to God. Allahu Ackbar. Had he thought of it I am certain that Casey would have reminded the survivors that Islam is a Religion of Peace.

    History reveals that multiculturalism or diversity as it is also known, is a degenerative disease and a destroyer of nations— hence our American motto expresses the critical necessity of cultural unity rather than divisiveness, of one indivisible people rather than a coterie of antagonistic tribes. E Pluribus Unum, “Out of Many One.” Tragically the post modern, politically correct conception of diversity prevented a legitimate investigation of Hasan’s hatred of his country and the American soldier. In fact, the cult of diversity was as responsible for the murder and maiming of American soldiers as the semi-automatic pistol Hasan used to kill them. Timid officials, too loath to take issue with a Muslim whose ethnic propagandists would fling islamophobic curses in all directions, ignored Hasan’s budding desire to get even with Americans.

    What facts did the FBI and Homeland Security ignore? Hasan was a Muslim. He viewed American “perfidy” through the prism of Islam. He admired and consorted with at least one well-known Muslim terrorist. He openly expressed his hatred of Americans, particularly American soldiers. Indeed, on that terrible day Hasan walked by civilians, let them be, and shot at soldiers. The official report, bound by the same inhibitions of political correctness as the government’s sorry excuse for an investigation, meticulously avoided the words jihadist, Muslim, terrorist and instead, in a hash of insipid euphemisms, described Hasan’s slaughter of American soldiers as a work place incident. Islam, of course, is a religion of peace.

      "Christianity is also a religion of peace. Nevertheless, it conducted an inquisition for several hundred years"
      Don't confuse Christians with Roman Catholics!

    The Underwear Bomber, a Muslim terrorist, traveled from Yemen, a country noted for Muslim terrorists, purchased a one-way ticket, paid cash and boarded the plane without baggage. His father called the FBI and warned of his son’s terrorist ambitions. Any one of these facts should have prompted those charged with the protection of American fliers to stop and investigate this Muslim terrorist.

    The American Left turned the King hearings convened to investigate Al Qaeda into a soap opera. Lacking only the deep, solemn cords of that church organ which propelled As the World Turns to a generation of success, Leftist Muslim Democrat Congressman Rep. Keith Ellison sobbing, weeping, and whimpering was barely able to speak so chock-full was his tender heart with empathetic grief. Well, for all his grief we really must look past his teary face if we are to take the measure of his character.

    “In addition to being the first Muslim member of Congress… Ellison was an official of the National Lawyers Guild …, cited as a Communist Party front organization by the House Committee on Un-American Activities. It remains the U.S. affiliate of the International Association of Democratic Lawyers, the old Soviet front. In that capacity, Ellison had been a vocal supporter—and attended a fundraiser for—Sara Jane Olson, a member of the Symbionese Liberation Army… an off-shoot of the Weather Underground that is probably best known for kidnapping Patricia Hearst.
    An Ellison speech on behalf of Olson, in which he called the terrorist a freedom fighter, has been eliminated from most websites, including one devoted to her legal defense…. One notices the lavish praise that Ellison bestows not only on Olson…but to Bernardine Dohrn, the former leader of the communist terrorist Weather Underground. Ellison also praised cop-killers Mumia Abu-Jamal, on death row in Pennsylvania, and Joanne Chesimard (aka Assata Shakur), who escaped the U.S. and is now living under the protection of the Castro dictatorship.”
    But why all the sodden tears? Well, Ellison accused Americans of racism because certain unidentified rednecks allegedly vilified the deceased Mohammed Salman Hamdani an undisputed hero of 9/11. In this most ugly accusation Ellison was simply lying. In less than a week after 9/11 the American government released a splendid tribute to Mohammed Salman Hamdani which somehow Congressman Ellison forgot to mention. One would think this hypocrite might have gathered some small comfort from a grateful nation’s elegant tribute to the Muslim he claims through his tears was vilified.

    There is little doubt that Mohammed Salman Hamdani died a hero on 9/11. The Pakistani-born American, just 23 years old, tried rescuing people from the World Trade Center when the buildings collapsed, killing him as well as almost 2800 others in the worst terrorist attack on American soil. Hamdani had planned a life of service to his community, working as a paramedic and then as a cadet for the New York Police Department. His heroic death was significant enough to get an explicit mention in the USA Patriot Act in its condemnation of bigotry against Arabs and Muslims.
    That American Leftists are flinging racist epithets at Congressman King demonstrates a politically correct psychosis that is making Americans more vulnerable to terrorist attack as it is defaming America and Americans.

    Oh, and by the way Congressman Ellison: May we have a few tears for the Israeli Jews Ruth and Udi Fogel, their sons Yoav age 11 and Elad only 3 years old; and may we have a few tears for Hadas knifed in her crib, a girl-child new to life by just three months.

    Zechariah 12
    1The burden of the word of the LORD for Israel, saith the LORD, which stretcheth forth the heavens, and layeth the foundation of the earth, and formeth the spirit of man within him.
    2Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in the siege both against Judah and against Jerusalem.
    3And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.
    4In that day, saith the LORD, I will smite every horse with astonishment, and his rider with madness: and I will open mine eyes upon the house of Judah, and will smite every horse of the people with blindness.
    5And the governors of Judah shall say in their heart, The inhabitants of Jerusalem shall be my strength in the LORD of hosts their God.

     6In that day will I make the governors of Judah like an hearth of fire among the wood, and like a torch of fire in a sheaf; and they shall devour all the people round about, on the right hand and on the left: and Jerusalem shall be inhabited again in her own place, even in Jerusalem.  7The LORD also shall save the tents of Judah first, that the glory of the house of David and the glory of the inhabitants of Jerusalem do not magnify themselves against Judah.  8In that day shall the LORD defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David shall be as God, as the angel of the LORD before them.  9And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.  10And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.

    Isaiah 53
    5 But he was pierced for our transgressions,
    he was crushed for our iniquities;
    the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
    and by his wounds we are healed.
    6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
    each of us has turned to our own way;
    and the LORD has laid on him
    the iniquity of us all.
    11 After he has suffered,
    he will see the light of life and be satisfied;
    by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many,
    and he will bear their iniquities.

    4 On that day his feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a great valley, with half of the mountain moving north and half moving south.
    9 The LORD will be king over the whole earth. On that day there will be one LORD, and his name the only name (Yeshua).
