A culture that celebrates kidnapping is not fit for statehood.
“I blame those who gave him the explosive belt,” his mother, Tamam, told the Jerusalem Post, of which I was then the editor. “He’s a small child who can’t even look after himself.”
Yet asked how she would have felt if her son had been a bit older, she added this: “If he was over 18, that would have been possible, and I might have even encouraged him to do it.” In the West, most mothers would be relieved if their children merely refrained from getting a bad tattoo before turning 18.
“They’re throwing the guilt on him by accusing him of kidnapping,” she told Israel’s Channel 10 news. “If he did the kidnapping, I’ll be proud of him.”
It’s the same sentiment I heard expressed in 2005 in the Jabalya refugee camp near Gaza City by a woman named Umm Iyad. A week earlier, her son, Fadi Abu Qamar, had been killed in an attack on the Erez border crossing to Israel. She was dressed in mourning but her mood was joyful as she celebrated her son’s “martyrdom operation.” He was just 21.
Here’s my question: What kind of society produces such mothers? Whence the women who cheer on their boys to blow themselves up or murder the children of their neighbors?
Western Universities seethe with young men and women who are demanding, pressuring, stomping their feet and whining because they want Israel punished for it’s existence. Why? Are these schlemiels by their demonstrations expressing approval and support for the worst, most-vile, inhuman race of monsters on the face of the earth? A people who can be marked by their actions; a young woman after being cured at a Israeli hospital returns there wearing a bomb-vest, “fighters” who shove children out in front of them for protection while they are trying to kill Israeli soldiers, their “leaders” send young women into the peaceful land and blow up themselves and anyone else near them in buses, cafe’s or markets. Why Israel hasn’t blown the entire Palestinian “Nation” to hell I don’t know. My recommendation to the people of Israel, scorched earth seeded with radioactive death, twenty miles wide.
Of the disaster’s that plague the world; earthquakes, hurricanes, tornadoes, fires…The Muslims are the worst. Every year they kill more people than all the rest, and they are the only natural disaster that we could fight directly and exterminate.
The Crusaders got it right the first time.
