The death of Daniel Wultz is “a gift from Allah, and revenge against American support for Israel,” said Abu Nasser, a leader of the Al Aksa Murderers Brigade, one of the Palestinian groups responsible for the Tel Aviv Passover atrocity.
Abu Nasser: “We wish this young dog will go directly to hell. Wultz was part of the American support machine that helps our enemy. I imagine him as one of these Nazis who live here. There is no difference between him and them.”
Abu Amin, a leader of Islamic Jihad, another terrorist gang that operates under Hamas’s umbrella, also rushed to claim responsibility for this outrage and stated: “.even if you live in America the hand of Allah and the sword of Jihad will reach you, and you will find the same end as Wultz.”
Asked if his group will specifically target Americans in Israel, the terrorist leader responded: “Killing Americans and Jews in one operation – it can be just great!”
Which leads us to the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA). Two years ago PCUSA passed a resolution calling for “phased, selective divestment in multinational corporations operating in Israel.” Apparently, this was not a resolution called for by the rank and file of the church, but by a number of radical left leaders.
Not content with the classic leftist divestment tactic, elements of PCUSA, from the Chicago Middle East Task Force, met with leaders of the terrorist organization Hizbullah in Lebanon.
Hizbullah, of course, is funded by Iran, does not recognize Israel’s existence, and is sworn to “the destruction of the Zionist entity.” Hizbullah occupies southern Lebanon and has a vast army there with miles of elaborate bunkers and a huge arsenal of rockets trained on Israel’s major cities. Naturally, the fine folks of Hizbullah are Holocaust deniers (as are official state-sponsored Arab media in every single Arab country).
In 1994 there was a massive blast in the Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires. One hundred Jews – men, women and children – were slaughtered, two-hundred and fifty gravely wounded. This terrorist atrocity was financed by Iranian intelligence and carried out by Hizbullah operatives.
The Argentine government recently released details of its investigation into another terror incident: the bombing of the Israeli Embassy on March 17, 1992, in which thirty people were killed and more than two hundred wounded. That bombing was also conducted by Iranian intelligence services, with Hizbullah playing a key role in its execution.
The Iranians are also responsible for designing and building the roadside bombs that are killing American soldiers in Iraq right now.
These are the people PCUSA has climbed into bed with. This is the organization PCUSA has aligned itself with: a notorious terrorist gang that kills Jews and Americans.
At a certain point, naive peaceniks cross a line and become terrorist enablers. The good news is that Kathy Leuckert, deputy executive associate director of the General Assembly Council, and Peter Sulyok, coordinator of the Advisory Committee on Social Witness Policy, were notified that they were no longer employed by the Presbyterian Church (USA).
The bad news is that Leuckert and Sulyok were just two of the staff leaders who went with twenty-two other Presbyterians on a “fact-finding” trip to the Middle East.
Allow me to speculate about the “facts” these distinguished theologians discovered in Lebanon: I think I’m safe in saying that half these “facts” are not true, and the other half are just outright lies.
And I’m being charitable here.
By the way, does anyone else get the funny feeling that people pushing for divestment from Israel believe more in the gospel according to Castro, Mao, Arafat, and Hugo Chavez than in the gospel according to Matthew, Mark Luke, and John?
Just a whacky thought.
During an interview with a Hizbullah-owned television station, Ron Stone, another honorable member of this distinguished delegation, said, “As an elder of our church, I’d like to say that, according to my recent experience, relations and conversations with Islamic leaders are a lot easier than dealings and dialogue with Jewish leaders.”
We wish this young dog will go directly to hell.
Stone added: “Also, we praise your initiative for dialogue and mutual understanding. We cherish these statements that bring us closer to you. We treasure the precious words of Hizbullah and your expression of goodwill.”
Even if you live in America the hand of Allah and the sword of Jihad will reach you.
Meanwhile, the divestment offensive marches on.
That elements in PCUSA consider Israel the aggressor in this conflict leaves us with only two conclusions about these so-called leaders: They are either the stupidest people on the face of the earth – or they are quite simply Jew haters.
I do not easily use the latter term, but when you single out the one democratic state in a sea of vile tyrannies – a state that for more than fifty years has sought peace with twenty two hostile, rejectionist neighbors in every manner, shape and form; a state that has granted one million Arabs full citizenship, whereas twenty-two Arab nations are Judenrein; a state that has been under political and military siege from the moment it was born; a state that has traded land for peace – when you single out this state and ignore the genocidal pronouncements of its enemies, and when this state happens to be the world’s only Jewish one, you can no longer hide behind the label of being “merely anti-Zionist.” You have crossed the line into classic Jew-hatred.
Let us return to where we began, with the young and innocent martyr Daniel Wultz. May his memory be a blessing. May his family find comfort among the mourners of Zion.Robert J. Avrech
