Now the media is full of questions about not only what will the government do as a reaction to the brutal murder of the three teenagers Eyal Yifrach, Naftali Frenkel and Gil-Ad Sha’ar, HaYa”D, but what is the best way to prevent more Arab terrorism.
My mind keeps going back to a time over thirty years ago, when my youngest was a baby and re-hospitalized due to a very serious infection that was also in his blood, Osteomyelitis, infection of the bone. At the time I had received the diagnosis, after taking my baby back to the hospital because his leg was red and swollen, he was just over two weeks old. The doctor explained that that my son would have to receive at least six weeks of IV (that’s in the vein) antibiotics which would require hospitalization. I was warned that even after there were no superficial signs of infection or even when all tests came clean, we would have to continue the regime.
Apparently the sort of bacteria that was threatening his life was known to hide in the body without showing/causing symptoms. That was the most crucial time to destroy it, and that’s why although he seemed, and probably was, perfectly healthy after only a couple of weeks of the powerful antibiotics, he needed to complete the full amount.
And thank the Good Lord and the tools He gave to the modern medical profession, my son fully recovered.
Why is this story crowding all else from my mind today?
I have no doubt that if we don’t do absolutely everything in our power to totally destroy the Arab terrorist structure, status etc., the Hamas and its ally the Fatah, and ban and banish every single NGO, foreign emissary, volunteer, United Nations international organizations et al, the terrorists will keep on returning. The State of Israel must also re-sentence each and every convicted terrorist and give them the death penalty. Jail conditions must also change to minimal services and no more than that.
If we don’t do everything in our power to destroy Arab terrorism we will suffer even more. Each attack will be more dangerous and audacious than the previous one.
