As last week’s light rail car attack claims yet another victim – a 22-year-old Ecuadorian woman who sustained a mortal head wound – Palestinians are busy hailing the miscreant responsible for the cowardly attack that also claimed the life of a 3-month-old infant, as a hero and martyr. This abominable terrorist attack as well as the depraved Palestinian reaction to it comes on the heels of yet another monstrous Palestinian outrage involving the kidnapping-murder of three Israeli teens in the Judea district. There too, the perpetrators, confirmed to be Hamas operatives, were hailed as heroes by both Hamas and Mahmoud Abbas’s “moderate” government and accorded the highest religious honors. No doubt that their families will now receive hefty stipends from the Palestinian Authority, courtesy of the American and European taxpayer.
While Israelis laud their scientists, their artists, their doctors and multiple Nobel Prize nominees and recipients, Palestinians have a long and ignominious tradition of extolling the virtues of those who commit mass murder, slaughter innocents on buses and hijack commercial airliners. Public squares and streets are named after them and their children are taught to emulate them. The contrast between Israeli and Palestinian society could not be starker. One society celebrates and encourages progress and life while the other has morphed itself into a death cult, steeped in perverted traits that are an anathema to Western civilization.
Consider the respective reactions of the mothers of sons responsible for carrying out the Ottawa parliament building and Jerusalem light rail attacks. Susan Bibeau, the mother of Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, stated the following of her son’s heinous actions, “As a person and mother I am horrified by the actions of my son, I am sickened by it. I will never understand what drives a person to such senseless violence...” That is an appropriate emotion for random violence directed against the innocent. The mother of the Jerusalem terrorist by contrast, was pictured holding a glorified photograph of her son as if he had accomplished some great feat. She displays no shame over the fact that her son is a child murderer. Instead, she excuses his conduct by claiming that it was a mere traffic accident. Her abhorrent and unnatural behavior is encouraged, aided and abetted by the Palestinian Authority and its culture of death.
When three Israeli teens were kidnapped this past summer, Palestinians encouraged store owners in the vicinity to destroy CCTV footage to thwart apprehension of the perpetrators. By contrast, when a Palestinian teen was kidnapped, Israeli police swiftly secured CCTV footage and apprehended the culprits. The troubling aspect however, is that the Obama administration either willfully ignores the societal and moral disparity or just doesn’t get it and likely never will.
With respect to Palestinian society, I thought I had seen it all. I thought that their depravity and deviancy could stoop no lower. I was wrong. As exposed by Dan Smith from the blog Israellycool, Palestinians seem to revel in the blood of Jews killed not just in Israel but in far off places like Nepal.
On October 24, a tourist bus travelling from Kathmandu to the Langtang area in Nepal overturned and fell into a steep embankment killing at least 10 including 2 Israelis. A Palestinian affiliated Facebook group with a rather large following quickly posted the story and celebrated the deaths of the “Zionist” tourists. The post, which featured gruesome pictures of dead and injured tourists in twisted and grotesque postures quickly garnered over 10,000 “likes” and generated 1,000 shares and a similar number of comments. As Smith points out, the comments are beyond hideous and include the following:
Oh God, exterminate them and kill them vaporized and left them none
O limit the Zionist Jews and kill them, vaporize them and don’t leave any of them
To hell and good riddance, expand their dead Allah
God burn them
The posts are universally racist and boorish. There are no expressions of sympathy for innocent travelers, no expressions of sadness for the loss of innocent lives and no expressions of empathy for the tormented families. To the Palestinians, all that matters is that two Jews were killed. Yippee! Time to pass out the sweets.
