November 18, 2014 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – On Tuesday morning, two Arab terrorists attacked a synagogue in Har Nof, an Orthodox section of West Jerusalem as they said their morning prayers. The rampage left 5 dead including a rabbi Three of the five were dual Israeli/American citizens.
Wielding axes and a gun, the barbarous act was committed by cousins, Uday and Rassan Abu Jamal who reportedly worked in close proximity to the house of worship. Both of them were shot dead at the scene by first responders.
More than a dozen family members of the killers were promptly arrested and their homes dynamited.
In the West Bank city of Rafah, a long-time terrorist stronghold, supporters rejoiced, hearing of the carnage while members of HAMAS passed out candy.
In an off the cuff response during a press conference dealing with Ebola, Obama said:
“Tragically this is not the first loss of life that we have seen in recent months; too many Israelis have died too many Palestinians have died. And at this difficult time it’s important for Palestinians and Israelis to work together to lower tensions…”
This is just the latest example of Mr. Obama’s indefensible dissembling and moral relativism when it comes to Muslim terrorism. The Israelis are entirely blameless for the horrific violence which has befallen the Jewish nation over the preceding months. The guilt rests squarely on the Arabic population which rejoices with each new atrocity.
Far stronger measures are called for than have so far been indicated by PM Netanyahu. It’s time for HAMAS and Fatah to be decimated. We know where the blame lies and who is guilty of incitement. Unless this enemy within is made to pay the price, the endless jihad will never end.
Purveyors of genocide are only deterred by death or likely prospect thereof and terrorist strongholds such as the Gazan city of Rafah must not be immune from retaliation.
