TERROR

Mom Driving into the Heart of Darkness

If reality doesn't match our concepts, we can always move reality a few miles over to where it fits.

We just received this report from the Tazpit news agency: Today at 9:00 AM Israel time, a resident of Gush Talmonim was traveling with her infant (less than a year old) to the city of Modi’in. Some 300 yards before the security checkpoint of Modi’in Illit she drove straight into a crowd of Arab demonstrators with Palestinian flags, who threw down lengths of cables across the highway to block traffic.

As she was sitting there, in her car, with her baby, stuck in a line of motionless vehicles, IDF troops fired tear gas grenades at the Arabs who had reached to within a few yards from the Israeli vehicles.

Israeli media today announced that the frightening event had taken place in Samaria, meaning “out there” in the territories, where anyone who gets in trouble was, basically, asking for it. But that was a lie. The entire event, from a crowd with flags blocking the road to the crowd getting near the stuck Israeli cars, to the IDF rushing on the scene just in time – the whole thing took place only about three miles from Modi’in, well within the safe and recognized and leftist-sanctified “green line.”

That’s what the media can do to history: if reality doesn’t match our concepts, we can always move reality a few miles over to where it fits.

  1. This is just pitiful ~ and even if the press was right and she was from Samaria she has a perfect right to live there! With more anti-antisemitism and hate taking place in the world more people will be make aliyah and the settlements will provide a home. IT IS THE JEWISH HOMELAND!

    At 7:00 am my wife drove there on her way to Tel Aviv and noticed a traffic jam of security personnel. After reading your article, Yori, I phoned her to take the other route home. Thanks much.
