Arab Murder of Soldier Fuels Hopes for Kerry’s Threatened ‘Intifada’

Kerry warned Israel faces a new intifada if it does not choke itself to death. A lone PA terrorist, on cue, killed a soldier, and everyone screams ‘Third Intifada.’ It won’t happen – unless Kerry continues to incite.

The IDF has identified the victim of Wednesday’s Palestinian Authority terrorist attack as 19-year-old Eden Atias, of Nazareth Illit in the Lower Galilee.

The 16-year-old attacker, from Jenin, pounced on his helpless victim while he was sleeping on an Egged bus at Afula, approximately five miles north of Jenin.

The bus had stopped for a break before its scheduled trip to Nazareth Illit, and it was empty except for Atias and two other soldiers. The murderer ran out the back door but was quickly overcome by security guards who had been alerted of the attack by a women soldier, apparently unarmed, who fled the bus while screaming that a soldier has been stabbed.

The terrorist said he acted out of revenge for Israel’s having sentenced two of his relatives to jail, one of them with a life sentence for terror.

That is all the State Dept. needs to tone down its response to the attack, in contrast to Tuesday’s bellyaching over reports that Housing Minister Uri Ariel hired an architect to draw up plans for new homes and apartments in the controversial E-1 area in the city of Maaleh Adumim and in smaller towns in Judea and Samaria. When Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu got wind of the news, he promptly Ariel to back off and freeze his plans.

The State Dept. will say in a more diplomatic tone, “If Israel simply would release all terrorists and prisoners, there will be peace” and never mind the victims of the revolving door terrorists who return to their favorite occupation of killing Jews.

The latest murder at the hands of Palestinian Authority Arabs, the sixth this year, occurred only days after the liberal bleeding heart wing of the defense establishment served up warnings that Israel is about to face a third intifada.

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, a lot more level-headed than most of the “experts” who are panting after the Obama administration to show how much they cooperate with the United States, insisted, “There is no sign of a popular uprising or so-called third intifada.”

Almost every one of this year’s murders has been carried out by lone terrorists, not connected with any terrorist organization.

But U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, who thinks he knows more about Israel’s security needs than anyone else in Israel, piped up last week with a warning that Israel faces a “third intifada” if it doesn’t give up its crazy idea that 600,000 Jews in Jerusalem and Judea and Samaria have a right to remain there as Jewish people in a Jewish state.

Hamas, which praised Wednesday’s terrorist attacks, definitely agrees with Kerry and is active in Hevron, Jenin, Shechem and other areas, but there is no popular support in Judea and Samaria for a revolt against Israel.

The average Mohammed does not want another round of violence, retaliation and the resultant economic stagnation that only would further postpone into eternity the date for establishing the Palestinian Authority as a country.

The average Mohammed is more concerned with Abbas’ corrupt regime and his single-minded aim to head a new Arab state that is totally dependent on foreign handouts and ignores the daily needs of its own people.

Every effort by the Palestinian Authority to organize “million man protests” has succeeded in bringing out 1,000,000 Arabs minus the last there zeroes.

The people aren’t interested.

The violence comes from lone rangers, usually teenagers or young men who have grown up with 20 years of incitement from their PA schools and Muslim preachers.

They don’t need Kerry to teach them to kill, but the Secretary of State’s statement is music to the ears of Hamas and the terrorist arm, known as the “military branch,” of Abbas’ Fatah party.

The threat of an intifada is simply another gimmick to pressure the Netanyahu government to fold up, go back to the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, and wait for the next boat.

The problem is one of “adaptive expectation.” If you think inflation is going to go rampant, you go out and buy like crazy, which encourages sellers to raise prices and bingo – inflation.

If the Obama administration continues to spout off the threat of violence, it will happen.

When Kerry responded rhetorically to an Israeli reporter last week and said, ”Do you want a third intifada,” he really meant, “I want a third intifada if that is what it takes to earn the Nobel “Peace” Prize.

  1. Steve Klein says:

    Why can't this prime minister level with the American people and our leaders? Tell them a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria will present a mortal threat. It is out of the question.

  2. Jim Qualls says:

    Just say NO to a "palestinian" state.

  3. George One says:

    Every stupid and dangerous statement made by Kerry and Obama tells the terrorists that they can literally get away with murder.
    Thank goodness there is the restraining influence of Congress, otherwise the members of the White House would become paid-up members of Hamas.

  4. Steve Brown says:

    Israel returned Gaza "for peace" and what did you get ? That's right: 10,000 rockets. *Sigh* the world needs real world negotiations.

  5. Bear Klein says:

    Kerry is idiot but the solider was murdered because the Palestinians daily incite in vile ways against Jews and Israel. These Palestinians are raised to hate Israel. So this Arab kid decided and certainly was encouraged specifically and/or by his culture to kill a solider or Israeli.

  6. AC Stubbs says:

    This happened as Israel stopped building apartments in Israel. Forget Kerry

  7. Stanley Roth says:

    How dare Kerry suggest that Jews cannot live in Judea and Samaria. What would he say if Israel said that all non Jews can not live in Israel IF a Palestinian JUDEN RIEN state ever happen

  8. Earl W. Littlefield Jr says:

    Kerry is using his only skill of spreading discord & chaos to overthrow Israel as was done in Egypt, Libya, Syria, & elsewhere…

  9. you right Mr. earl I am agree 100% with you, now is another problem, with united state, they steeled California belong to México so Obama and Kerry hast to return all this land back to México and let Israel in peace Israel is belong to the chosen people nor Palestinian and Palestine is Judea Samaria Golan belong to Israel, Obama and Kerry never went to the school to learn history send it back

  10. Lloyd Bergner says:

    Am Yisrael Chai

  11. Joy Beum says:

    Kerry nor Obama speaks for the American People. We are friends of Israel and all Jews. We do not want Kerry speaking FOR us. Do what you have to do to keep Israel free and safe. I really do not know how you stand all this. So sorry.

  12. Anyone who states that Israel may not build on their land shows a disregard or ignorance of the word of God or perhaps even a rejection of it. This is God’s land and he gave it to Israel unconditionally forever and that includes the Temple mount. In the middle east we have wars and rumors of wars and sometimes rumors of peace on an almost weekly basis. In addition Iran claims they will not build the bomb but continue to spin their “low level” centrifuges. Current intelligence seems uncertain of when Iran could get the bomb and Israel cannot afford to gamble with this. Time IS running out. Another question is rather or not the Russian/Syrian agreement will do the trick in Syria? Stay tuned. I wrote a small 6 or 7 page book that talks about what I believe the Bible states will take place soon as well as the potential trends I see at this time. I don’t accept donations and it’s free. It’s a short read. I encourage you to have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

  15. Brian Shapiro says:

    Thanks for the update. Well put about Kerry. All for the prize. Sacrifice the Jews.

  16. I know history from México and all the world and I still study is like the south and the north who are in power is the north the union and the south want to separate, is like if you ever read the a hundred years of Peloponnese, you will find what the united state want to do with others countries and became the word democracy when democracy doesn't exist

  17. also the lord god of Israel give them the promise land but the enemies of Israel want to divided

  18. No problem with post-67 military occupation of J&S, no problem with Jews living there (provided they take their chances with whoever ends up running the place), just a problem with Israel pouring money into J&S and running J&S in my name & at my expense (speaking as an Israeli citizen & ex-taxpayer) while spending within Israel is slashed.

  19. Lina Deza says:

    History says, Palestinians occupied lands belongs to the Jews and therefore, belongs to the state of Israel!
