Why the authoritarian regime in the Palestinian areas yearns to eradicate Jewish past and life everywhere.
“I suggested to Amjad the idea that we would reach the fence of Itamar. I said, ‘let’s do something that will be special, so that in the future each one of us will grow older and tell his children about it’”. This is the transcript just released in Israel of the interrogations of Amjad and Hakim Awad, the Palestinian murderers of the Fogel family, slaughtered last year in Itamar.
Ruth Fogel was in the bathroom when Awad killed her husband Udi and their three-month-old daughter Hadas, slitting their throats as they lay in bed. Awad slaughtered the mother as she came out of the bathroom. He moved into a bedroom where Ruth and Udi’s sons Yoav (11) and Elad (4) were sleeping. He slit their throats. This is Awad describing the carnage: “I took the first boy to the bedroom and I murdered him with two blows to the neck. I slaughtered him.” Then he killed the infant Hadas: “The baby slept between the father and the mother and cried out loud. I stabbed him in the heart.”
In court, Awad smiled at the camera, he said he has “no regrets” and flashed the “V” sign for victory while he was leaving the courthouse. “I am a person like you, I have no mental condition,” Awad said to the judges. His smile was sincere, reminding the so called “Khmer Rouge’s smiling assassins”.
Kaing Guek Eav, the former commander in charge of S-21 prison in Phnom Penh where as many as 16,000 Cambodians were killed, revealed that the communist Khmer Rouge killed the babies of the regime’s victims by battering them against trees.
Like the Palestinian killers of the Fogels and the Palmers (a Jewish father and son killed by stones last autumn), the Khmer Rouge didn’t waste bullets, but cut their victims’ throats. By each Camdodian mass grave, where women and children were buried together, there was a banana tree nearby where the innocent babies were swung against the trunk.
Unlike the Palestinian criminal project, the Cambodian genocide was not perpetrated on an ethnic basis but on ideological grounds. Pol Pot wanted to create a new type of man, ideologically pure. Cambodia became a life-size agrarian laboratory. The Khmer Rouge turned what was once a smiling land into an arcipelago of gulags. An estimated 1.7 million people died under Pol Pot’s 1975-79 regime. The horrible enormity of what the Khmer Rouge was planning was apparent after the capture of Phnom Penh. Pol Pot’s men evacuated cities and towns into the countryside. They killed people just for wearing spectacles. Their victims were monks, students, farmers, vendors, teachers, children and retarded persons. People died for smoking “imperialist cigarettes.”
Like the Khmer Rouge, the Palestinian Islamists destroyed cohexistence. Like the Khmer Rouge, the Palestinians are trying to build a utopia ethnically cleansed of Jews, where apostates and “traitors” are stoned to death, where the Islamic code is the only rule of law and human bombs are commemorated in public squares. As in Pol Pot’s days, scores of dissidents and opponents have been eliminated by all means in the Palestinian areas. Like the Palestinian terrorists, the Khmer Rouge started as a very small and mysterious group of peasant, French-educated revolutionaries. Like Pol Pot Kampuchea’s “reign of terror,” the Palestinian reign of terror is not trying to build a “Palestinian Authority,” but a State of Palestine from the Mediterranean to the Jordan River, made up of six million Palestinian people and on the ruins of the old Jewish regime.
Like the Khmer Rouge educated people to hate and butcher “feudals,” “liars,” “capitalists” and “traitors,” generations of Palestinian children, like the killers of Itamar, are taught to hate Israeli “monsters,” “sadists” and “devils.”
As the new transcript clearly shows, that night, in the hills of Samaria, the two Palestinians didn’t kill a human being, but three little Jewish demons.
If the Polpottists had the revolutionary mission of cleansing the country, the Itamar’s perpetrators see themselves as messengers of Allah sent to wipe out Jewish born and unborn babies.
Like with the Khmer Rouge yesterday, no rational argument can be used today against a Palestinian ideology maniacally dedicated to Jewish destruction, and that says so at every opportunity.
Like the Khmer Rouge did with the feudal Buddhist past, the authoritarian regime in the Palestinian areas wants to eradicate Jewish past and life everywhere, in Itamar as well as in Tel Aviv.
Evil exists. The innocent Camdodian children met it when the Khmer Rouge entered in Phnom Penh. The little Fogels met it when the terrorists entered in their community last year. But the Israelis are fighting it every day. For all of us.
