|Program Link: Words of truth amidst a world of lies|
…Here was a report this morning in JPost by Khaled Abu Toameh and Herb Keinon: “Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has decided to honor Palestinian prisoners who were released in last week’s Gilad Shalit exchange deal by rewarding them financially…Abbas’s decision follows a similar move by Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh who decide to give each prisoner a $2,000 dollar grant.”
An early this morning I heard (I think) on Kol Yisrael Abbas will give them 3,000 dollars each, making it a $5,000 present, as at the rally in Gaza the top Hamas leader in prison famous for stabbing Jews to death 25 years ago said the Balestinians had no choice but to continue kidnapping soldiers to gain the release of those still in jail. Each one of them will get $5,000 from Hamas and the PA.
And course Abbas’s gift – since the PA survives on outside aid provided by the EU and US – comes from the pockets of the taxpayers in the free, liberal and allegedly civilized West.
Is this not sickening? Though perhaps most sickening is the silence of the government of Israel in the face of this outrage. It is Bibi’s silence, he who, as a post-Jewish Israeli is simply incapable of calling these criminal enemies of civilization antisemitic enemies of the civilized free world.
The silence of these Israelis takes my breath away. Netanyahu’s game of supporting a state for the Ancient Ones in Judea and Samaria is the height of anti-Zionism. Men like his father and other secular Zionists abandoned the Jewish ideology and Jewish life-style of belief in the Holy One Blessed be He and the commandments which act out this belief and thought they could become normal gentile-style nationalists.
Sorry, but it hasn’t worked out that way, has it? On freeing the almost 300 barbarians sentenced to life imprisonment for murdering Jews, Amnesty International issued a statement saying, “The prisoner exchange involving Gilad Shalit and 477 Palestinian prisoners highlights the need for the humane treatment of all detainees in Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPT).”
Moral equivalence again. The Arabs were prisoners; Gilad was a hostage, a soldier denied his rights under the Geneva Convention about which Amnesty said nothing. And in its statement here it called for the humane treatment first of all of detainees in Israel, as if these antisemites in Amnesty did not know of the cushy conditions in Israeli prisons for these barbaric enemies of civilization: the regular family visits, the rooms where they sleep containing showers and cooking facilities and televisions.
This moral equivalence has been the result of 18 years of Israeli stupidity and immorality in refusing to fight these murderers to the death, instead of negotiating with them in the delusional conviction a friendly condominium arrangement can be worked out.
Bibi in his weakness also made a jerk of his heroic brother Yoni who died fighting the terrorists because Israelis in those days rejected trading murderers for Israeli hostages. According to Bibi’s current shameless betrayal of his own words in his book about terrorism, the Israeli government in 1976 should have released the PFLP murderers the terrorists at Entebbe demanded and thus saved his brother’s life.
This is the end of the secular Zionist enterprise…
