Khair al-Din Hamdan from Kafr Kanna in the Galilee was an Israeli Arab terrorist who was minding his own business a few days ago and attempting to stab Israeli policemen to death. Kafr Kanna is where the Biblical town of Cana stood and according to the New Testament it is where Jesus turned water into wine. The tomb of the great Jewish sage Simeon ben Gamliel is nearby, attesting to the Jewish origins of this town now under Arab occupation.
The intended police victims of the terrorist were not amused and were unappreciative of the symbolic value of their being stabbed to death to protest the grievances of Hamdan and his terrorist comrades. Instead, the police selfishly and immoderately shot Hamdan to death as Hamdan attempted to murder them with his knife.
Israel's Arab fifth-column and its fellow travelers then took to the streets and violently protested this "murder in cold blood" of the gentle giant Hamdan. He instantly became the poster boy for those loyal Arab citizens of Israel who seek the annihilation of Israel and its Jews. The neutral and objective foreign media were also outraged at the violation of the Miranda rights of Hamdan, who was killed by the police without legal representation and a trial. Khair's father expressed the outrage of the family that his son had been prevented by the police from murdering Jews -- and was not simply stopped with tear gas or at most a bullet in his thigh. And the heroic appeasers of the Likud government decided to order an official commission of investigation into the interruption by the cops of the murder attempt by Khair.
At the same time, some of Israel's finest leftists are also taking to the airwaves and the streets to show their solidarity with the young dead terrorist. The Khair lobby claims that video footage shows that, after attempting unsuccessfully to stab the cops, he was in fact backing away from them when he was shot. Just why his backing away could be interpreted as any reason NOT to summarily shoot and execute him on the spot with extreme prejudice has never been explained by anyone.
Some of the car crash murderers in Israel in recent days have been shot on the spot AFTER crashing intentionally into people. The only thing wrong with that is that Israel's weenie government refuses to pass a law proclaiming that instant execution without trial of ALL terrorists at the scenes of their murders and attempted murders is not only legal but downright laudatory and deserving of a medal of valor.
The emerging leading Jewish leader of the Khair lobby is a Knesset Member from the anti-Israel semi-Marxist MERETZ Knesset Faction, loosely associated with the anti-democratic protest movement "Peace Now." She is Tamar Zandberg. She decided to go in person to Kafr Kanna to show her solidarity with the poor innocent victim Khair, a bit like all those demagogues in America making hajj to Fergusan, Missouri to show their solidarity with the violent thug shot there by police.
Sister Zandberg's participation in the Salute to Terrorists with Knives event at Kafr Kanna is relayed by herself in Hebrew on her Facebook page. She also posts a photo of herself without chador sitting on the protest podium with assorted Arab members of the Khair lobby.
Here is my translation of what she posts there:
"I visited today in Kafr Kanna, the town in which Khair Hamdan was shot to death. I went together with Knesset Member Issawi Freij (also from Meretz). We expressed our solidarity with the feelings of injustice that an entire community feels today, not only because of the excessively light finger on the trigger (by the police), not only because of the fact that the photographs of the event raise serious doubts about the legality of the police actions and the suspicions of an attempt to cover them up, but also because of our recognition that this is NOT an isolated disconnected incident. It is instead part of the policy of racist discrimination directed against the Arab minority in Israel, a policy directed and implemented from on high by the Prime Minister and his cabinet.
While one minister speaks about 'a terrorist' and another speaks about 'terrorism,' while the Prime Minister himself raises the possibility of stripping citizens of their citizenship, they are not just commenting on a controversial (sic) incident but rather they are outlining their policy against the Israeli Arab public.
This government of intimidation and incitement has now reached new heights of hatemongering. Its own obstinacy is what manufactured the confrontation whose climax was seen in the Gaza war this past summer. It has driven Israel's international reputation down to a new low. This same government now paints 20% of the country's population as the enemy. I cannot escape the feeling that this is part of a grand governmental plan of organized destruction against any hope for a better future. (The word 'destruction' she uses in Hebrew is the same as the word for 'terrorism' – SP.) "
