Netanyahu: PA Incitement Caused Pre-Passover Terror Attack

The incitement of the Palestinian Authority continues... it has yet to see fit to condemn this reprehensible act.

It is not yet clear who attacked the Mizrahi family on Highway 35 on the eve of Passover in broad daylight. But it is clear that whoever it was had no fear whatsoever that he would be caught. It was a brazen attack — with a terrorist standing on the side of the road in broad daylight — and he was able to escape quite handily back into a village or right into Hevron with no problem at all, due to the removal of roadblocks that previously might have stopped him — or at least have slowed him down.

It proves, once more, that American pressure on Israel to extend “good will gestures” to the PA by releasing terrorist prisoners and opening security road blocks has cost our people another river of blood.

That price for peace – especially when the same ritual is repeated over and over again with no results – is too high. Talks should not involve blood-letting as a precondition for peace.

The definition of negotiation is to bargain with another, over preparation of a treaty or contract. It is a dialogue between two or more people or parties to reach an understanding and/or resolve points of difference. Successful negotiations involve a win-win scenario.

Continued terror attacks, government-sponsored media incitement designed to inspire further attacks and ensure another generation of hate makes it clear the PA has no interest in peace with Israel. Negotiations with such an entity are bound to fail, since the PA is not negotiating in good faith.

As a writer, one is taught to use language and words. But as an analyst and intergroup specialist, one focuses on actions rather than words. The actions of the Palestinian Authority government are painfully clear – this is not a partner for peace. In fact, this is not a partner at all.

Israel stands alone. It is in our best interest to simply focus on the job of protecting ourselves, unpleasant as it will be. The world will condemn us for it regardless. And then they will move on, because that is what life does.

But we will have to explain it to the Americans — that relationship is precious and necessary — and we need a true diplomat to do that. Someone who is fluent not only in the language but also in the culture. We need that person sooner, rather than later. Now, in fact. Our “hasbara” – our public relations – has been abysmal.

We need a coordinated, cohesive, coherent message, delivered promptly at the moment when something occurs and not hours later. One that is succinct, clear and culturally competent in the language with no typos or errors in syntax, grammar or spelling. Really.

We don’t have that yet – but we need it badly because the Arabs already have it and it has cost us dearly. A smart government will figure out that this is a priority to fund, and fast.

  1. aLlah is gods just like baal and beelzbub.

  2. Mary Martien says:

    Of course…as always.

  3. Bibi it’s time shoot to kill

  4. ISRAEL SHOULD WIPE OFF THIS EARTH MUSLIMS=MURDERS!!

  5. I mean that in a good way, BIBI….LOVE YOU

  6. BiBi please get rid of all the so called Palestinians in Israel so you can have peace

  7. These people I don’t know what they want!

  8. Palestinian must prepare they will used bombs to attack

  9. It is sad that hate runs so deep. Perhaps they should study modern history of the British who created many of the problems in the 30′s and 40′s.

  10. This terrorist attack shows that the Arabs of Hevron are making war against Israel, because they are killing the Jews. It is written in the Torah, in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 20:10-18, that God commanded that, in the war, Israel to kill all the enemies. Therefore, the State of Israel must kill all the Arabs of Hevron.

  11. PORTEU LA SENYERA CATALANA ESTELADA AL COSTAT DE LA BANDERA D'ISRAEL, SI US PLAU!

  12. Gene Strong says:

    Deport all.palestinians from Israel including all Muslims from jerusalem

  13. They did a good job of protecting us!!!!

  14. not only did the PA incite this, they praised the attack

  15. Discúlpeme, ¿Estás diciendo la bandera catalán de pie con la israelí?

  16. So sorry for your loss- so sad this happened. Amazing to me still- are the words the angel spoke to Hagar in the wilderness -after being told to leave with Ishmael – (his hand will be against every man and every mans hand will be against him)

  17. Where are the big charlatanes Netanyahu and Yaalon, send all terrorists prisoners in pig manure.

  18. Rivka Miller says:

    Bibi – I blame you just as much. You know what the arabs are capable of doing yet you still release terrorists. You also have blood on your hands. These murderers get out of prison and return to what they know best – kill innocent Jews. You are just a weak puppet and can't stand up to Kerry and Obama.

  19. Uzi Kattan says:

    Netanyahu talks a lot but he gave away 90% of Hevron to the PA and recently he released murderous terrorists as a 'good will gesture'. He is to blame as much as the Arab terrorists. He also armed the PA terrorist army instead of destroying their ability to attack Jews. Netanyahu is to blame for the attacks and for terrorizing Jews as he did in Yitzhar where Jewish youth finally had enough of his persecutions and destroying Jewish homes and struck back. Pipi only has a backbone when he attacks Jews but he is too spineless to do anything against the Arabs.
