Terrorists attack Israeli soldiers with a Molotov cocktail in Arab village riot near Beit El and Ramallah.

One or more Palestinian Authority terrorists hurled a firebomb Sunday night at a home in the Jewish community of Beit El, in the Binyamin region of Samaria. No one was injured, and the attackers fled.

If the Arabs had “succeeded” by burning the house to the ground and wounding or killing the residents, the establishment media would have been all over the story.

But, like rock-throwing, it was barely reported.

That is how the center-left media moguls, including the government-funded electronic media, keep most Israelis in the dark. When a major terrorist attack occurs in Judea and Samaria, it is reported as if it out of the ordinary, an assumed sign of escalation, of an intifada, of the need for the government to take stock of why it allows Jews to remain in Judea and Samaria, unwanted by Arab terrorists.

Throwing rocks and firebombs at Israeli citizens and soldiers are daily events. It is not an intifada and it is not a war. It is carried out by a minority of Arabs, almost all of them under 30 and who have been fed 20 years of incitement by official Palestinian Authority media to hate Jews and to become martyrs.

The JNS news agency ran an interesting article this week that the Islamic State slave markets, and the ISIS’ treatment of young girls as objects of merchandise, operate with nary a whisper from the mainstream Muslim community.

Similarly, the majority of Palestinian Authority Arabs may not love Israel but they are not interested in an intifada. They know their own Palestinian Authority is a terrible alternative to the “occupation,” but they are afraid to speak out because of fear of punishment by the criminals, who do not even deserve the title ”terrorists.”

Israel’s establishment media is just as much to blame.

The attacks are on “settlers,” so they don’t merit coverage, unless someone is killed or seriously injured.

But when a couple of right-wing criminals, and that is what they are, set fire to an Arab-Israeli co-existence school, or post pictures of Tzipi Livni and other officials in Nazi uniforms, the broadcasters on Israel Radio rush to the microphone to resurrect the ghost of the blood libel aghast the national religious community for the murder of Prime Minister Yitzchak Rabin.

  1. where was it reported that they found the individuals responsible for the fire at the so-called co-existence school? how can you say it was "right-wing" anything? it could have been "right-wing" arabs, it could have been lefties trying to force incitement against righties, I thought we lived in a democracy…isn't that what everyone is screaming about these days??? if so, then a principle of democracy is innocent until proven guilty.

  2. Shalom, Tsvi. Thank you for your honest perspective given here in Jewish Press. I must say that I switched off an interview by Rina on Channel 2 with MK Bennet recently because she seemed to be baiting him. I think he has much to say that is worthwhile hearing.

    There was a time I believed that the "settlers" were trouble-makers, and deserved the trouble they received. Now I realise that most of them are courageous Jews who believe the Scriptures and who do not seek enmity with their Arab neighbours.

    I believe that it is at Israel's peril that she bows to the '" settler" myth, describes Judea and Samaria as the "West Bank" and cow-tows to fickle Western governments. Planned violence of one citizen on another must be stamped out decisively; even if it is unpopular in the liberal media.

    I also believe that all who advocate civil violence – be it MK Zoabi, or any leader of any Authority or organisation – should be exported to a country whose desire for civil violence matches their own – perhaps Northern Iraq? (I;m sure Zoabi wouldn't be bored there.)

    To me, advocating violence of citizens toward other citizens is a form of treason. Does that make me ultra right wing in my attitudes? Possibly. There again, I have no desire to be linked to the HARD LEFT.

  3. The Palestinian Arabs are making war against Israel, because they are killing or trying to kill the Jews. It is written in the Torah, in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 20:10-18, that God commanded that, in the war, Israel kill all the enemies, without distinction between combatants and civilians. So, the State of Israel must kill all the Palestinian Arabs, without distinction between combatants and civilians. Note that the Palestinian Arabs are killing the Jews without distinction between combatants and civilians. If the Jews do not kill all the Palestinian Arabs, the Palestinian Arabs will kill all the Jews. The State of Israel must obey God, and fulfill His commandments that are in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 20:10-18.
    The State of Israel must expel the Arabs from its territory, which includes the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, because it is written in the Torah, in Bamidbar (Numbers) 33:52, that God commanded Israel to expel the other inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, which is the Land of Israel, which includes all the Palestine. The Arabs invaded the Land of Israel in the year 635 CE, so that they are invaders, and must leave Israel, and return to their own land, which is Arabia. This is not racism, because any person, of any race or ethnicity, can convert to Judaism. Moreover, the Palestinian Arabs are killing the Israeli Jews, so that the Israeli Jews need to expel the Palestinian Arabs from the Land of Israel (Palestine), as self defense, in order to save their lives.
