In “Palestine”, it’s business as usual

In Japan, a massive earthquake and subsequent tsunami has caused a huge death toll, enormous numbers of people are injured and missing, and much of the island nation’s infrastructure in the affected area has been smashed beyond recognition.
For the rest of the world, it’s business as usual: all civilised nations immediately and unquestioningly diverted their best resources to assist the Japanese in their hour of need, sending search and rescue units, medical and food supplies and so on. Here for instance is what Israel is doing to help, and here are details of the Swedish, US and British aid efforts, among many, many others.
In much of the Muslim world, there is an equally massive upheaval in demographic terms as millions of downtrodden citizens wanting nothing more than democracy and human rights are finally struggling to overthrow entrenched despots and tyrants, from Tunisia and Libya to Egypt and Bahrain – and beyond: the Iranians are extremely nervous and as usual in the mullahs’ dictatorship, their nervousness means civilians are going to die.
For the rest of the world, it’s business as usual: all civilised nations immediately and unquestioningly diverted their best resources to assist the persecuted Arabs in their hour of need, with demands in capitals the world over that the despots step down, that democracy be established, even that a no-fly zone be created to prevent Gaddafi’s massacre of his own people in Libya. Here for instance is what the UK is doing to help, and here are details of the Swedish, UN and US efforts to aid Arabs suffering under the yoke of Arab tyranny.
In Itamar in the Jewish province of Samaria, also known as the West Bank from the time when it was occupied by Jordan, a mother, father and three young children aged 11, 3 and just 3 months were murdered in their beds on Friday night after Sabbath prayers and dinner. The perpetrators are Palestinian Arabs from the surrounding area. The horrific terrorist attack – all the indications are that it was carried out by forces affiliated with the Palestinian Authority’s Fatah political party headed by President Mahmud Abbas – was part of the Palestinian national movement for self-determination.
For the rest of the world, it’s business as usual: civilised nations said nothing, then nothing, then made a few statements expressing regret while continuing to pump billions of dollars into the Palestinian Arab economy of Mahmud Abbas. Here is what US president Barack Hussein Obama said, while continuing to withdraw tax revenue from the US Federal Reserve and transferring it to the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah. The IDF – Israel Defence Force – has said it will not rest until the perpetrators have been brought to justice, and it will not rely on anyone else to get the job done bearing in mind the brutality of the barbaric act. Israeli PM Benyamin Netanyahu did not pull his punches, laying the blame squarely on the climate of incitement and racist aggression deliberately created and perpetrated by the Palestinian Authority.
To see pictures of the slain family – with the full consent and indeed at the express wishes of the surviving family members – click on this link. I have refrained from inserting the images into the body of this blogpost so as not to offend the sensibilities of readers who prefer not to see the pictures – nobody should be forced to see images of this kind without adequate warning.
For Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas (he is president of Ramallah and a couple of outlying villages) it’s also business as usual. Voicing indignation with all the savagery of a wet sponge, he mumbled that he rejects “all violence directed at civilians”. Well, that should put his troops in their place, they must be quivering in their (US- and EU-funded) boots. This racist bigot (he is a notorious Holocaust denier) simply cannot bring himself to condemn the wanton, brutal murder of Jewish civilians – babies even – by Muslim terrorists fed on a barbaric cocktail of unquestioning religious zeal and bigoted nationalistic fervour.
In “Palestine”, it’s business as usual. But hey, let’s keep shutting down our schools, hospitals and police stations in Europe, the US, Canada, Australia, and instead use that money to fund the Palestinian Arabs. They’re always shown they’re worth it. The massacre in Itamar is no exception but simply par for the Palestinian Arab course.
They murder, we pay them.
Business as usual.
