Why do Arabs continue to kill Jews?
It’s clear that the suicide bomber, who exploded in a Jerusalem bus this morning, murdering 10 Jews (as of this writing) and wounding about 50, was acting out the goodness of his heart.
While the ‘palestinian policeman’ from Bethlehem who belonged to Gedudei El-Aktza of Arafat’s Fatah, was blowing the #19 bus to smithereens next to Ariel Sharon’s official residence, Israel was in the process of implementing the ‘prisoner exchange’ with Hezbollah. Israel released, not only 400 live terrorists, but also 60 bodies of dead Hezbollah warrior terrorists. Today’s terrorist attack was an attempt to even the equation. After all, we were only getting three bodies back. So the terrorist exploded in an effort to even the score. Ten killed, fifty wounded, equals 60. Plus three soldiers’ bodies – Israel comes out on top.
That’s one reason to kill Jews. But of course, there are more.
Two days the Yesha Council held a unique press conference, during which they revealed the contents of ‘secret discussions’ between Yesha leaders and the highest levels of the Prime Minister’s office. These leaders met, one at a time, with Dov Weisglass, Sharon’s Chief of Staff. He offered them a seemingly, tantalizing deal. The Sharon government would ‘disengage’ from seven Yesha communities sometime in the near future. Those communities named were: Kfar Darom, Netzarim and Morag, in Gush Katif, Kadim and Ganim in northern Shomron, and Sa-Naur and Homesh in central Shomron. In return, Sharon promised to refrain from any other ‘disengagements’ until a final agreement with the PA terrorists. In addition, he promised to try and ‘save’ the rest of Gush Katif in Gaza.
At the press conference, the Yesha Council vehemently rejected this ‘deal,’ calling it a disgrace. But that’s not really what is important. What is important is that the ‘deal’ was offered in the first place. Our Arab enemies could view this planned eviction of Jews from at least two different perspectives. On the one hand, they must have been disappointed at the small number of communities Sharon was offering to destroy. But, on the other hand, the very fact that Ariel Sharon, the great warmonger, the brain behind Sabra and Shatila, would even consider deleting any Jewish settlements in Israel must have been seen as a great victory.
Their analysis must have been short and sweet. The reason behind Sharon’s proffered ‘disengagement’ was simple. The above-named communities and their surrounding vicinities are all prime targets of Arab terror attacks. Numerous security forces are needed to provide them with even semi-adequate protection. Sharon himself said, not too long ago, to a group of Bedouins that he hopes the time will soon come when Israeli troops will no longer have to serve in Gaza. Why? Because it’s too violent there.
The terrorists may not all be university graduates, but simple arithmetic isn’t beyond their capabilities. They know that one plus one equals two. Kill Jews plus Kill More Jews equals capitulation-withdrawal-‘disengagement.’ One need not be a genius to figure it out.
Actually, today’s prisoner exchange is a case in point. In truth, were I in a decision-making position, I really don’t know what I’d do. It is similar to a King Solomon trial (when having to decide which woman the baby belonged to, Solomon commanded that it be cut in half). But the absurdity of the deal screams out to the heavens. Elhanan Tennenbaum, an Israeli colonel in the reserves, whose kidnapping is cloaked in mystery and question marks was freed. In addition Israel received the bodies of three soldiers who were killed by Hezbollah on the Lebanese border for the purpose of kidnapping them. Hezbollah terror leader Nasrallah is already on record proclaiming that he will kidnap more Israeli soldiers in order to use them to liberate other captured terrorists.
In return Israel was forced to release four hundred! live terrorists – four hundred, most of whom will undoubtedly return to their favorite pastime – and we all know what that is. (See: Jibril, Achmad: Victory Over Israel – How I Added One Thousand Soldiers to my Private Terror Force.)
It seems that the nucleus of the deal was not Tennenbaum or the dead soldiers. Rather, it is the missing aviator Ron Arad. Israel has been promised, at the very least, information concerning Arad, and particularly, whether he is still alive. For that information
we will release another Arab murderer. The price to obtain Arad, living or dead, will be astronomical.
In other words, Israel, pushed into a corner, is continuing to acquiesce. Our enemies take the offensive, we take the defensive, they are victorious and we lose.
One of rules of Israeli negotiations centers on the principle which states that terrorists ‘with blood on their hands’ i.e., who have murdered Israelis, will not be released from jail. Despite this code of conduct, several Arabs with ‘blood on their hands’ were today set free. And ten others with blood on their hands and faces, legs and arms, all over their bodies, were also liberated – not from Israel, but from this world, for eternity.
Hamas spokesman Abdel Aziz Rantissi said, after today’s bombing, “It’s not important who carried out this operation. The only thing which is very important is that we are resisting occupiers who came … to occupy our land and to kill our people.”
Rantissi isn’t talking about Gaza – he’s talking about Jerusalem and Hebron, Tel Aviv and Haifa, Eilat and Kiryat Shemona. After all, Sharon is folding – he’s offering to ‘disengage’ from Israeli communities, he’s offering a palestinian state, he’s releasing hundreds of terrorists from Israeli jails, in return for…. Killing Jews!
So, in reality why not KILL JEWS – IT WORKS!
