‘Can Angels Die? Yes. The Hatred Kills Both Body and Soul.’

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

In the West Bank, an Israeli Arab paramedic cannot gaze at his little girl, cannot hug her, without seeing before his eyes the picture of a Jewish man hugging his own baby daughter — both of them dead, murdered by two teenage terrorists.

Four years ago, a horrific tragedy was perpetrated by monsters; but those who survived were met and aided by an anonymous, caring paramedic they never had the chance to know. It was a terrible night; who thought of such things? The first paramedic to arrive on the scene was Muawia Kabha, an Israeli Arab Muslim. The experience affected him deeply, as have others he has shared — chosen to share — with fellow paramedics who serve in Judea and Samaria.

Kabha wrote the following piece on the March 11 anniversary of the murders of five members of the Fogel family in the Jewish town of Itamar in Samaria. Israeli translator Michal Reznic, who rendered the piece into English, added a note to let readers know that she is proud to call Muawia Kabha, the writer of “these profound words,” her friend. Kabha has asked that readers share his words with others, so that perhaps some day the relatives of the Fogel family of Itamar might come to know who he is and find a way to be in contact with him. To offer both sides that choice, we present his deeply heart-stirring, and soul-hurting words.

* * * *

“Four years ago, on this very day, two Palestinian terrorists armed with butcher’s knives succeeded in breaking into the Israeli village of Itamar. Without flinching an eye, the terrorists unfathomably and systematically slaughtered Udi and Ruth Fogel and three of their children, Yoav (11), Elad (4) and 3-month old, baby Hadas.

Roi and Yishai escaped this ritual murder because the terrorists did not know of their whereabouts. Tamar, their daughter, also escaped simply because she was not at home at the time.

Palestinian society glorified the massacre. Palestinian media allowed the relatives of Evil to appear on television and declare that they are proud of their sons. Celebrations were held and candy was distributed throughout the Gaza Strip.

Until this day, the president of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, refuses to deal with the incitement rife in the areas under his rule – the same incitement that enables human beings to butcher babies with carving knives without blinking an eye.

My dear friends, I, Muawia Kabha, for the past 15 years have been lying in a pool of blood that’s been dripping from human beings, victims of hatred. A pool of blood made up of Jews’ and Arabs’ blood, men and women, children and infants !!!

Why should we not join hands and unite while living instead of continuing this bloodshed? Let’s join hands and drop the daggers of hatred that keep stabbing us mercilessly !!!

So many victims, so many killings, so much death. What for? Why? Because our ego doesn’t let go and doesn’t allow us any flexibility. This ego represents our animal instinct that refuses to comprehend that evolution has transformed us from animals to human beings.

Last week I read an article about a group of Muslims in Europe (Oslo, Norway) who decided to join hands and encircle a synagogue as a symbol of solidarity and peace.

Why should one group join hands to protect the other, instead of joining hands WITH the other? Why should we not join hands — Jews, Muslims, Christians, Druze and every other religion on this earth — together. In doing so our hands will be occupied with strengthening each other rather then holding the knife that will take the other’s life.

Terror Attack Foiled Near Yitzhar

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

An Arab terrorist tried to stab hitchhikers near the Little Yitzhar Junction on Thursday afternoon.

The Arab approached a group of Israeli hitchhikers asking them for water.

When one of the Israelis went over to give him a bottle of water, the terrorist pulled out his knife.

One of the hitchhikers at the hitchhiking post then pulled out his gun and fired a warning shot in the air.

The terrorist dropped the knife and ran away into the nearby village of Burin.

She passed away from complications from pneumonia.

EU Says ‘Europe Will Not Be Intimidated’ by Terror

Sunday, February 15th, 2015

The European Union vowed, “Europe will not be intimidated” in the wake of another round of Paris-style terror attacks over the weekend striking the Danish capital of Copenhagen.

“The European Commission and the High Representative (Federica Mogherini) deplore the attacks in Copenhagen costing the life of at least two citizens and injuring several others,” said the EU delegation to Israel in a statement sent to media by email late Sunday.

“Even one life is too many. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families. Europe stands united with Denmark in upholding freedom of speech and freedom of expression,” the statement continued.

“We stand against anti-Semitism and all forms of discrimination. Europe will not be intimidated.”

But while Europe issues statements about not being intimidated by anti-Semitism, Jews are dying for the cause.

Dan Uzan, 37, donated his life to stop the terrorist’s bullets with his own body, thus preventing the attack from becoming a massacre. Uzan was guarding a Bat Mitzvah being held at a Copenhagen synagogue at the time of the attack.

Hours earlier, 55-year-old documentary film-maker Finn Noergaard died from wounds sustained after absorbing gunshots fired in the first attack; it appears, however, that the gunman’s target may have been Lars Vilk, the Danish cartoonist known for his satiric caricatures of the founder of Islam, the prophet Muhammad, which Muslims have found offensive.

Remember the Terror Attack on Jerusalem’s Supersol Agron

Wednesday, February 4th, 2015

The family of a victim of terror fears Israelis will forget their loved one who died to give life to the Jewish State in 1969.

“Very few people are aware of this terror attack that took place in Jerusalem forty-six years ago, on Feb. 2, 1969,” Michael Jankelowitz wrote in an email marking the anniversary of the bombing at Jerusalem’s Supersol Agron – the supermarket on Agron Street in the capital.

Two Hebrew University students were killed that day: Eddie Joffe, formerly of Capetown, South Africa and Leon Kanner.

“Together with the Joffe family we are requesting the Jerusalem Municipalty and Supersol [together] place a plaque by the pavement near the entrance to Supersol on Agron Street in Jerusalem to mark the murder” of the two men, so their memories will be perpetuated.

On the lovely road that winds down to the Dead Sea from Be’er Sheva and Arad, one can see numerous memorials to those who have died in traffic accidents. They dot the landscape on each side of the narrow highway with various types of sculptures, each bearing a plaque with the name of the departed and the date he or she died.

This should not seem so difficult and one has to wonder why after nearly half a century that it has not yet come to pass. And yet, upon reflection, it is also true that generally within a short time after any terror attack, the scene is spotlessly cleaned and as if born anew; no trace of the tragedy remains.

Perhaps this is the way of Israel not to allow our enemies any way in which to gloat over our losses; our grief remains our own, private and within our hearts forever. If one cannot find evidence of terror, then can one say a scar on the nation exists? No victory to the terrorist…

Rest in peace, victims of terror. We remember you forever.
