September 16, 2015 – San Francisco, CA – PipeLineNews.org – The Intifada continues in Israel as last night a mob of Arab jihadist set fire to the Tomb of Joseph near the city of Nablus.
“Hundreds of Palestinians entered the Joseph's Tomb compound…and set it on fire, severely damaging the Jewish holy site in what Israel called a "despicable" act…The overnight violence came amid calls for another "day of rage" in the region…Hours after the tomb was torched, an Israeli soldier was stabbed…near the West Bank city of Hebron…The attacker had disguised himself as a news photographer and was shot dead, the IDF added.” [source, Palestinians Set Fire to Joseph's Tomb Amid Calls for 'Day of Rage' ,NBC]
Note: we intentionally removed the offensive portion of the above quote which suggested that the IDF soldier, who had been stabbed sustained only minor injuries. Might we hazard a guess that if the article's authors, Lawahez Jabari, Yael Factor and Alastair Jamieson had been the victims of such “slight” wounds they might well still be in intensive care, as well as having been traumatized for life.
Not being familiar with Israeli criminal law we won’t hazard a guess as to what the charges would have been since the perp has assumed room temperature [an excellent example of genuine “gun control”] however in the United States, if he had survived, this slug would have been charged, minimally, with aggravated assault, battery and attempted murder. Finally…news flash…the invented term “Palestine” is the hand-maiden of Jew hatred.
Such is the pigsty journo in which most of the West is currently wallowing.
That aside, Joseph’s Tomb is revered as the burial place for the 11th child of Jacob who was sold into slavery by his brothers, jealous over the perception that he was his father’s favorite. The site has come under attack by increasingly bellicose Arab squatters living in the West Bank because of its close connection to Judaism.
At some point, the Netanyahu government is going to have to stop dealing with the Arab predation as an unrelated series of attacks and recognize, hopefully in a public manner, that this is Islamic jihad and future incidents will be met with the extreme use of “disproportionate” force.
At the same time Mr. Netanyahu better rouse himself from whatever delusion he is laboring under and understand that President Obama, his Secretary of State, the estimable John Kerry and this administration as a whole are motivated by a strong undercurrent of anti-Semitism and have made the deadly calculation that it is Iran’s destiny to control this sector of the Middle East which the president has intentionally destabilized.
While some might be puzzled why the CIC is conducting U.S. foreign policy in such a brutish manner, it’s no mystery to this writer. Obama is comporting himself in a manner that is in full compliance with the dictates of Islamic supremacism, with a hard bias toward the Shia Muslim sect. We also see the vengeful hand of Valerie Jarrett in fashioning her boss’ already skewed world-view.
Team Obama is thus a natural enemy of the Jewish state and we are growing weary of others who seek to clothe this issue in anything but the starkest terms. The prospect of the terrorist Mahmoud Abbas [Abu Mazen] asking for an investigation of the fire is absurd.
He should already be in custody for incitement to murder.
