  7. The Arab rioters who throw rocks at the Jews are making war against Israel, so that they are war enemies, so that the State of Israel must kill all of them, because it is written in the Torah, in Devarim (Deuteronomy) 20:10-18, that God commanded Israel to kill all the war enemies. And the State of Israel must expel all the Arabs from the Land of Israel, because it is written in the Torah, in Bamidbar (Numbers) 33:52, that God commanded Israel to expel all the other inhabitants of the Land of Canaan, which is the Land of Israel.

    Op-Ed: Collective Punishment
    Giulio Meotti
    September 24, 2013
    There is a form of collective punishment for terror acts that the writer claims is morally justified.

    An Israeli soldier, a young, wonderful and smiling Jew, was abducted and executed in Qalqilya by despicable Arabs. Monsters wanted to use the body of that Jew to release another monster jailed in Israel.

    During th first Intifada, Arab terrorists from Qalqilya burned Ofra Moses and her small children to death. It was not different from a pogrom.

    And it was nothing new. In the years following the creation of the State of Israel, the town of Qalkilya was one of the worst vipers’ nests of Arab genocidal passions.

    In 2006 another Jew was torched and dismembered in Qalqilya. His name was Daniel Yaakovi, he was a doctor from the nearby "settlement" of Yakir.

    "This is a message of fire — a burning message to the occupation. Killing, burning and fire", Fatah's armed wing claimed after the killing. Another Jew had been turned into a burned corpse by Qalqilya's terrorists.

    Qalqilya is a strategic town 12 miles distant from Tel Aviv and less than five minutes from Kfar Saba. Qalqilya is not like more isolated Nablus (Shechem), it is shoulder to shoulder with the pre-1967 Israeli towns.

    The city has been called the “Paradise Hotel”, because it was used by suicide terrorists as the jumping off point into Israel.

    You don't become "the terrorists' hub", as Qalqilya has been named, without the complicity of the local population and infrastructures. The Palestinian Arabs aren’t
    Israel should also erase the houses of the terrorists, confiscate their properties and deport their families.
    hostages; they chose terrorism freely, they love killing Jews, so must live with the consequences.

    Terror is a collective punishment, Israel's answer to it must include collective punishment.

    Israel should flatten entire neighborhoods of Qalqilya if its Arab residents destroy innocent Jewish lives as happened last week.

    Israel should also erase the houses of the terrorists, confiscate their properties and deport their families.

    This is what the Allies did during the war, when they didn't hesitate to impose a collective punishment on the German and Japanese people (Dresden was levelled), while today we like to believe that the State of Israel is facing "individual murderers" and unorganized "fanatics", and must pardon the Islamic society that nurtures them.

    The Arab population of Judea, Samaria and Gaza living in the communities that spawn repeated terror is responsible for that Muslim terrorism. Collective punishment of that population by Israel – when administered in proportion to the evils it is meant to combat – is justified.

    When terrorism is perpetrated against the Jewish people, it is justified to wage war against the population from which the terrorists emerged, and that sometimes includes harming civilians who did not actively participate in the terrorist acts themselves.

    It doesn't mean the taking of human lives, but destroying properties and morally subjugating the environment that supports them. This is deterrence.

    Protection of human life from barbaric terrorism comes before political correctness. This is what I would say to Israel's leaders if I were the father of Tomer Hazan or Daniel Yaakovi.

  9. Calling the West Bank, land that legitimately should be in control of the Palestinians, Judea and Sumaria, does not make it so. But it does make your credibility quite limited. And yes I am a Jew, and no, you cannot exclude from the Jewish family.

  10. Anonymous says:

    Mr. Blum, calling Yehuda and Shomron, "the West Bank" makes about as much sense as using a misnomer to describe a people "Palestinians" ?? Seems odd to me, that if Jew's pray, you feel throwing cinder blocks and rocks at them is an acceptable manner of expression. As for excluding you from the Jewish family, maybe you noticed in parsha Shelach, HaShem did have a little to say about those that call them selves Jew's and then speak poorly of his gifts.

    But look it's not all bad, I'm sure you're happy with what happened to Albert Boaz, that should help you enjoy you Shabbos.

    May HaShem Bless you Mr. Pontes. Nothing is sweeter than the word of HaShem.

  12. jonkurovsky -Having been raised under the adage "If you haven't got anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." I will say nothing about you or your remarks.

  13. It's interesting, I don't hear any righteous condemnation from the EU and others who like to advance the Arab cause when these violent outbreaks happen . Could it be possible that these events pose a true threat to the "peace process" and not the building of settlements? Just a crazy thought. We constantly hear the Arabs demands. But, never hear that tirades like this must be eliminated as a prerequisite for negotiations. However, this is the responsibility of the Israeli government to make these demands and this is part of the failure of the Israeli approach in regards to "peace talks." Nobody is going to advocate for Israel, they have to have the fortitude to makes their demands clear. The Arabs want this and the Arabs want and that's fine. With rewards comes the responsibility that your worthy of the rewards by acting in a mature and civil manner, The Arabs have clearly failed this test, until they start passing, any thought let alone action of having a Palestinian state should be tabled.

  14. JeanVercors says:

    Arabs never miss an occasion to celebrate Violence, Catherine Ashton and EU deputies must be rejoycing
     In Aug 1929, 133 Jews were killed by Arabs and 339 others were injured.
    not because Jews were occupying the West bank , sorry i Meant Judea and Samaria but only because they were praying at the western wall, the holiest Jewish site. The Israeli Govt should apply a different approach with these occupying Rioters

  15. Yechiel Baum says:

    These riots happen always during Jewish holidays which proves that it is nothing more than a holy war by the Arabs and has nothing to do with territories. Wake up world. Your country is next!

  16. Lloyd Bergner says:

    We have met the enemy and he is the muslim

  17. bklyn45h says:

    Blum’s another self hating Jew. He should take a stroll through an arab area some time
    wearing a yarmelke.

  18. CTBtweets says:

    Were an Arab to throw a rock at me, burn my property or threaten to attack me I would shoot to kill.

  19. It is terrible that this is not being reported and that Abbas is allowed to speak at the UN but has no responsibility or consequences for this violence.

    I wrote many times that Israel needs urgently to through Netanyahu's goverment, it doesn't matter how, Israel has to finish to leasen the US and EU, they are looking their interests, is only to see the movements of Obama, Kerry, Ashton, etc:, the hipocracy of them, Israel should take with their hand the Palestinian solution at once to through out the Palestinian from East Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria even from Gaza (the Egyptians would be happy), Israel canot live in this way, no two states solution, not more peace processes, it is time that Israel have peace and to be respeted.

  22. Arabs riots!! they should be collected and sent to Gaza or out of Israel since they are your enemies; why you give them the freedom of attacking your citizens and your Police men. Israel is to good to those who hate Jews and Israel.

  23. A very old and successful tactic … talk peace and wage war at the same time. North VeitNam pulled it on Pres Nixon – and – it worked, for them.

  24. Where are the peace talks! Is this the way peace can be achieved? IDF God be with you.
