Palestine is Genocide

On the 11th of March, two Arab Muslim men climbed through the window of a home in the village of Ithamar, and massacred an entire family, killing both parents, stabbing a 4 year old boy twice in the chest, murdering an 11 year old while he sat up reading in bed and slitting the throat of a 3 month old baby girl.

A week later, Israeli and Arab pollsters conducted a survey in the West Bank, Gaza and Jerusalem. A third of the Arabs surveyed supported these atrocities.

All the justifications for a Palestinian state fall away in the face of this simple fact. That a third of the residents of any Palestinian state favor the murder of Jewish children. Not to achieve any larger goal, but just because they are Jewish children. To call for a Palestinian state in the face of that fact is to advocate genocide.

The Arab Muslims who approved of the attack gained nothing from their deaths. The dead children were not soldiers. They were not killed as collateral damage. Their deaths had no strategic value. There was no reason to kill them, but for the sake of killing them.

Thursday afternoon, Muslim terrorists carefully timed a school bus route and hit the bus. The bus had been full of students, but luckily most had gotten off before the attack took place. It wasn’t the first time they had deliberately targeted school buses. The most famous of which was the Avivim School Bus massacre all the way back in 1970. That same day a kindergarten was hit by a rocket. Schools have been frequent targets of Muslim terrorists. So have pregnant women. There’s a word for all this. Genocide.

Deliberately targeting children has only one tactical purpose. The extermination of an entire people. Had the Muslim world really wanted a Palestinian state, they could have created one by accepting the UN partition plan, or at any time between 1948 and 1967 when Gaza and the West Bank were in their hands. Had the Israeli Arabs who dub themselves ‘Palestinians’ wanted a state of their own, they could have had one between 1992 and 2011. They don’t want a state. What they want is a state of war.

Genocide cannot be resolved by territorial compromise. People who approve of slitting a baby’s throat and stabbing a 4 year old in the heart are not out for an extra kilometer here or there. The Nazis were not going to be appeased with the Anschluss or the Sudetenland– and Muslims are not going to be pacified with partial control over East Jerusalem. It isn’t East Jerusalem that they want. Or even all of Jerusalem. Or even all of Israel. What they really want is a reason to keep killing.

A man who murders a child might be insane, but millions of people who act and think that way are not insane. They have developed a moral code that says their victims are subhuman, while they are the ‘True People’. That code allows them to act out their worst impulses in the name of an ideal. Whether that ideal is the Third Reich or the Caliphate doesn’t matter at all. The ideal is there to justify the atrocity.

Men make laws to rise above the beast inside them. But sometimes it is the beast who begins making the laws. The Koran is the law of the beast. The law that says you may kill a man who is different than you and take his wife for your own. That he is less than you because he is different than you. The law of the beast does not seek the peace of equals, but the peace of predators and prey. The right of the beast to prey on you because you are not of his kind.

Liberals may plant Coexist stickers on their bumpers decorated with a string of religious symbols beginning with the Islamic star and crescent, that renders it first among equals– but it is all in vain. On his deathbed, Mohammed proclaimed that, “two religions cannot coexist in the Arabian Peninsula”. You may cry peace, peace– but there will be no peace. For the Prophet of Islam has commanded it. There can be no peace or coexistence. Only servitude, genocide or resistance. If you refuse to serve, then you will be massacred or driven out. That sentence is all you need to know to understand the Islamic war of extermination against Israel.

    This article needs to be distributed as widely as possible. Every reader should email it to others that they know. With the noose being tightened around Israel by the world community, more people have to write and talk to others with the amazing frankness of this fantastically written column.

    It's the only way to cut through the fog of lies.

    Wonderful article.

  • Laurence

    A wonderfull article ?

    I would suggest that this article clearly shows that Israel is now on the run. The actions of two people in murdering a family in your view demand punishment on the entire Palestinian population.

    And it is this very action that has been justified by Israel over decades, and supported by the US that has brought us to this juncture.

    There is one thing we can all now be thankfull for. The Palestinian people are going to get their state………..very soon. And Israel is going to have to hand back all the stolen land and return to the 1967 borders that are recognised internationally by over 100 nations.

    Israel is going to have to make some stark choices over the next decade. Palestine will forge allegiences with nations, economic, military and culturally. Israel will have to adhere to international law…………or face serious consequences.

    • Martin Tsiolkovsky

      To Laurence of Arabia. Keep on dreaming. Your "stolen land" fraud is so vary stale. You dogs have been working that one for years but it has gotten you nothing. That is because in reality no such people as the palestinians exists. You can be assured of one thing and that is this… More Muslim hatred equals more dead Muslims. And nothing else. GUARANTEED !! The Arabs living in the teensy tiny Disputed area have nothing that anyone else wants. Other than being canon fodder for the Jihad.

      "The actions of two people in murdering a family in your view demand punishment on the entire Palestinian population."

      The problem is that over 75% of the Palestinian population support (both morally and materially) terrorism such as the disgusting murder of the Fogel family. Recall, Palestinians voted Hamas to power knowing full well the organization calls for the destruction of Israel and the use of terrorism to achieve its aims.

    • MixMChess

      "And Israel is going to have to hand back all the stolen land and return to the 1967 borders that are recognised internationally by over 100 nations."

      First, the "territories" in 1967 were not "stolen," they were legally acquired under international law in a "defensive war" against another attempt by the Arab armies to invade and destroy Israel.

      Second, despite the fact that the territories were legally acquired, Israel has been trying to give those lands to the Palestinians for a future Palestinian state. Recall, in 2005 Israel completely withdrew from Gaza. Since the 1993 Oslo accords, Israel gave control of over 98% of the W. Bank to the Palestinian Authority.

      Israel has stated that they are prepared to return to borders that are more or less similar to the 1967 borders, however they are willing to trade land inside Israel for land inside the W. Bank to recognize "facts on the ground."

      In reality, the easiest choice will lie at the foot of the Palestinians, will they agree to live peacefully with their Jewish neighbors or will they continue to seek Israel's destruction in racist and xenophobic acts of terrorism and aggression?

      Why argue with morons like yourself? You are just a leftist parrot, spewing the same propaganda and lies as all the rest of you Israel haters. Dry up and drop off!!!

      "The Palestinian people…"

      are the Jews. The ones falsely calling themselves "Palestinians" are Arab settlers illegally occupying Palestine, the one and only land of the one and only true Palestinian nation, the Jewish nation.

      "Israel will have to adhere to international law…………or face serious consequences."

      And now for some reality:

      Every freedom-loving nation will have to abandon international "law"… or face serious consequences, not least of which is subjugation to either Marxist or Islamic rule.

      All political systems above the level of nation are illegal. All are tools of subjugation either wrought or co-opted by the Marxists to do away with the nation-state. The U.N. must be disbanded, and Marxism must be criminalized. The Arab imperialists a.k.a. Muslims must be expelled. This you must do if you value your liberty; we Israeli Jews most certainly do!

      • Martin Tsiolkovsky

        It is a fact that until 1948 every Jew from what became modern Israel was called a Palestinian. Then they were called Israelis. The Arabs from that area were always called Arabs. No country, ethnic group, language or culture called Palestinian has ever existed other than as the name the Romans gave (as an insult) to old Jewish Israel. In the first half of the 20th century it was used in reference to Jews from a region of the Turkish Ottoman Empire which included the area comprising modern Israel. The typical Arab in the zone around Israel today is in every way indistinguishable from the Syrian and Egyptian Arabs. Of course there are many Jihadi's from throughout the Muslim world who have joined what they perceive as the "vanguard" in service of the Islamic urgency to exterminate the Jews. All these ethnic Uzbeks, Indonesians, Paks, Turks, etc have one thing in common, which is a raging hatred and a mania to die, in the effort to kill Jews.

    LOL have you ever read the bible? The jews are the chosen people. They then took that title, and slaughtered every man women in child to take the land they occupied for a little while.

    If i murdered your entire family, and then handed the survivors a survey after, how the f*** do you think they are going to answer it you f***in moron????

    • Stan

      Hey moron, the survey was given to Arabs not the survivors. Obviously, it's you who can't read.

    • MixMChess

      Israel never slaughtered or "ethnically cleansed" the Palestinians. Of course that was the goal of the Arab armies in 1948 which very publicly stated that they planned to eliminate ever last Jewish man, woman and child and "drive them into the sea."

  • Monty Lasovsky

    Regrettably the author of this article is positively and tragically correct.
    There is no compromise with the Palestinians. With them it's all or nothing. But why the tragic suprise? They have never hidden their intention of killing the Jews wherever they may be nor have they ever changed their philosophy of death passed on to their children at a young age with the wearing of "baby" bomb jackets and bandannas stating their intention to kill the Jews and drive them into the sea. Is the world being complicit in the Palestinian goal ? To a large degree it would certainly seem like it. You only have to ask the Fogel family for an answer here! Israel will have to handle it's own answers to the Jihadists Moslem intent in her own impeccable manner as always. If Israel doesn't, who will?

  • ObamaYoMoma

    Israel is going to have to make some stark choices over the next decade. Palestine will forge allegiences with nations, economic, military and culturally. Israel will have to adhere to international law…………or face serious consequences.

    Dude it’s sad but true, you have been inculcated to be an obsessed Jew hater and as a result you don’t know if you are coming or going. The sad reality is you are a useful idiot, as the same jihad that targets Israel also targets you, only you have rendered too obsessed with hating Jews to know it.

    The truth is the jihad being waged against Israel via the so-called Palestinians, which are nothing but the proxies of the Islamic world, is permanent and will continue to be waged perpetually against Israel for as long as Israel continues to exist and regardless of any and all fake peace processes used to weaken Israel and to dupe useful idiots exactly like you.

    Just like the greater global jihad at large, of which you are oblivious and in which the genocidal jihad being waged against Israel is a smaller component, is permanent and will also continue to be waged perpetually against all unbelievers as long as there are unbelievers that continue to exist that haven’t been forced to submit to the authority of Islam.

    Your problem is you have drank the kool-aid and in the process not only been rendered into an obsessed anti-Semitic Jew hating bigot, but also into a delusional useful idiot.

    Moreover, if you weren’t so inculcated and obsessed with hating Jews, you’d realize that the very same people that accuse Israel of violating international laws themselves don’t recognize international laws or any other manmade laws, for that matter, as they emanate from mere mortal man and thus by default are unjust and fallible, whereas Sharia, in stark contrast, is divine because it emanates directly from Allah and is therefore perfectly just and infallible.

    Indeed, because you have been rendered into an obsessed Jew hater, there is a whole lot you don’t know! By the way, what international laws legitimize the killing of innocent Israeli civilians in cold-blood? Indeed, you sympathize with bloodthirsty terrorists, yet you have the audacity to condemn Israel and all those that support Israel.

    Palestine will forge allegiences with nations, economic, military and culturally.

    Wauw …the allegiences will be with arab- nations, when it´s about cultur…. perhaps !

    The arab nations will have nothing to do with the palarabs….. and they never had !

    What will the palarabs do if the Western countries, EU and USA, stopped the yearly money-flood to Gaza and West Bank = a hell of lot of money, billions of euro and dollars ?

    The palarabs have nothing to deal with because they are not working like the Israelis !

    What they do is hate…. murder, steal, become criminals …. even in the infidel countries they are living in !

    We in Europe want them OUT, back to the MiddleEast to their selfcreated hell-holes where they belongs .

  • Nawal

    Articles like this one continue to perpetrate hate and hinder the hard work of reconciliation that is going on everyday. The reality is that unless a solution is worked out, people will continue to die. Unfortunately, the political leaders have shown no will to make this happen, so people have taken it into their own hands to create a space for Palestinians and Israeli's to live together. It is much more than a bumper sticker. Its everyday tough choices that you witness tragedy, sorrow, and pain. But you choose another route, because revenge breeds more hatred. But why must those who have lost their families and call for enough of the violence be more courageous and peaceful than bloggers and readers who spew hate who know nothing of the conflict?

  • WMM

    If you back anyone into a corner they will lashout simply in survival mode. Whatever the origination of the hatered, Israel is killing thousands of palestinians, "with much financial aid from the U.S.", to a very few Israeli's being killed. The current, "wherever they originated from", people of palastine are having fences put up between their homes and feilds they work to feed themselves. They are being mercifully suppressed like by bullies in school, with no way of deffending themselves but to take the pot shots when they can and hope to survive another day. Israeli's dump their trash down the hillsides on top the palistinians like thier dogs. Who treats who like dogs? Go see for yourself. Show me the data of finacial support military or otherwise to the Palestinians. Iralaeli's kill 1000:1 and call it Justified.

    • WMM

      Also, Jews will infultrate any nation they wish, and financially tie their hands to get control, they will suppress and control you as they did to Germany until someone without finacial interest steps up to protect those being prosecuted. Being beat down four on one is hard on any people. Being financially controlled, and suppressed is as devistating over a period of time. Three cheers to mother Israel "The United States" were Jews that are above fighting over a piece of property have come to get fat!!! They learned from Germany though, they leave the people enough to stay oblivious and occupy their lives with propagandy, paperwork, etc. to keep the common folk here to busy trying to find time to enjoy "the freedom" to realize what is going on. It's actually hillarious, with the internet and cell phones they can track every move. The U.S. Gov. is greedy people, being overseen to do the right thing by greedy people, with greedy people incharge of them, etc. etc.

      • WMM

        I just consider myself fortunate I guess that we are not suppressed further. If you aren't affraid of work, and stay clear of the druggies, you can have a fairly peacefull life compaired to many places in the world. I trully wish the worldwide bullying would stop. I don't think it will because most sports are perfect examples of human nature, do whatever it takes to beat the other guy so were better, or the best, state champions at it, it's engrained into the heads of all the countries children. But don't be a bully. Ha Ha, Ha, right!
