A Very Bad Weekend


It looks from here like a really bad weekend in Israel. Some 40-odd rockets were fired from Gaza at southern Israel within 48 hours, as far as Beersheva. Arabs rioted throughout the country, throwing rocks and firebombs at any available Jewish target. They systematically destroyed the light rail tracks, stations and equipment in Arab neighborhoods of Jerusalem, which were supposedly a symbol of coexistence in the capital.

The murderers of the three Jewish boys are still at large, and — oh yes — mak in the case of Muhammad Abu Khdeir, the Arab boy who had gasoline poured over him, and was burned alive. The three suspects are Jews. No further details have been released as yet.

The cold-blooded depravity of this crime makes it stand out, even in the context of the Jewish-Arab conflict. I would happily put a noose on the necks of the killers myself (I would feel this way whether they were Jews or Arabs). The fact — assuming that it is determined that they are guilty — that Jews did this is shocking.

If they are convicted, they will rot in prison. There will be no prisoner exchanges, and they will not be considered heroes. Soccer fields will not be named after them, and the Israeli government won’t pay them and their families a ‘salary’ for their service to the state. The Jewish people will spit them out in shame.

There are many differences between the way we will respond to this terrorist crime and the way Arabs respond to acts of terrorism committed by Arabs. I am not in the mood to write about that now, just to express my sorrow to Abu Khdeir’s family.

  1. As of now, the weekend continues apparently… Where is the cavalry?!!

  2. What is the police, IDF, or IAF doing in the situation? Are they trying to kiss the Arabs’ butts or do something to protect their citizens? I would like to see What Bibi will do besides sitting on his hands while “Rome burns”.

  7. Rubin- you are right! He may be a thug, but he would never take the cr-p that the Arabs are pulling, especially with the rockets into Israel from Gaza.He would level the darned place-and insofar as the rioting, he would really put the screws on, and he would not care in the least what the world said. Like Putin annexed the Crimea, he would do the same to Judea and Samaria and probably take back Gaza.

  8. Israel has the right to defend themselves. Who started this? Their enemy.

  11. Uzi Kattan says:

    Vic that boy was murdered by Arabs as an ‘honor killing’ because he was a homosexual. The Arabs also are using him for a blood libel against Jews.

  12. You have no idea Letizia. Live a week in an Israeli’s shoes. Don’t spread lies.

  13. Uzi Kattan, not true. I am a Jew and was horrified to hear that this boy was killed by Jewish extremists. Netanyahu announced yesterday that they have 6 in custody. He made it clear .

The liberal wing of the Jewish establishment in the US is following the same path as it did in the 1940s.
