Open Season on Jews in the Jewish State

We're probably more scared to shoot someone and kill someone than we are to get hurt ourselves...

The coverage of Tuesday’s mob attack in Jerusalem noted a forty-minute response time from the police. Something sounded familiar when I read that.

After a little digging, I found it: an interview Arutz Sheva’s Tamar Yonah did last September with a resident of Aish Kodesh in the Shomron following a mob attack incited by mosque speakers. Here’s the relevant exchange:

“I heard that it took an hour-and-a-half for the IDF to arrive at the scene. Is that true?”

“Yeah, about. That’s usually what it takes.”

A further similarity between these attacks was the victims’ fear of prosecution if they defended themselves. One of the people attacked by the mob in Jerusalem said:

“…we preferred to flee rather than shoot, because we were afraid of the police. In an event two weeks ago, a security guard fired a shot in the air and he’s facing all sorts of legal complications. My buddy knew that if he shoots, he’d lose five years of his life and go to jail.”

The Aish Kodesh resident likewise explained:

“We probably have enough bullets to take care of it, but that’s probably more the scary part.

We’re probably more scared to shoot someone and kill someone than we are to get hurt ourselves… All we need is one bullet to hit one person, and the whole incident is over. Everybody turns around and runs away, and we’re fine. But then that person is basically taking it upon himself to go to jail, because the way it works here in Israel it’s kind of like you’re guilty until proven innocent—especially if you killed an Arab—and everybody knows that…And the Arabs kind of know the bluff already. They know that we’re not going to shoot them.”

Lest these fears be thought unfounded, Border Police raided Aish Kodesh in April and seized weapons after another attack. Weapons seizures have been occurring for some time in these communities.

Meanwhile, Jews continue to be arrested for praying at the holiest site in Judaism as Jews elsewhere in Jerusalem live in nightmarish conditions. Our enemies see all of these signals and act accordingly.

MK Miri regev with flag

Regev is part of the reason why numerous Israelis have suffered so many aerial acts of attempted murder from that region.

There are many good, solid reasons to support applying the death penalty to a variety of crimes.

Rav Soloveitchik stated that “to me it is something vulgar, this clamor of the liberals that abortion be permitted.”

That there is even a debate in the religious sector about obeying eviction orders reflects a warping of core values.

When a Jew is shot to death in Eretz Yisrael and the murderer plea bargains to a twelve-year sentence, Israel’s banner is low.

The awful truth is that Israel invites foreign contempt because it shows contempt for itself.

“We believe that every person in Israel must have their fundamental rights met…” Not applicable to terror victims and their families’ fundamental right to justice.
