What do the Palestinians think about the murder of a young rabbi and father of six? They “welcome” it with open arms.
So what if Rabbi Raziel Shevach was said to have maintained good relations with his Palestinian neighbors?
The Palestinians are still happy that he was gunned down last week as he was driving his car in the northern West Bank. They are happy because the victim was a Jew. They are happy because the victim held a religious position: Rabbi. They are happy because the victim was a “settler.”
The fact that Rabbi Shevach was the father of six children does not faze the Palestinians one bit.
For them, what is important is that another Jew has been murdered. This meant, for the Palestinians, that his presence in the West Bank also carried religious weight. A rabbi living in the West Bank is emblematic of Jews’ historic and religious attachment to the land. For all those reasons, the Palestinians are happy about the murder. Notably, the rabbi’s political affiliation is irrelevant. He could be from the most extreme left-wing or right-wing party in Israel – this still would not make any difference. Rabbi Shevach was not murdered because of his political views.
Perhaps it was a case of mass dementia or some fast spreading contagion caused derangement. We are unsure what caused so many speakers of repute including Avi Gabbay who leads the Zionist Union and is the Labor Party candidate for Prime Minister who expects to replace Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu. Of course, this is immediately after he is forced to resign over some cigars and champagne which he received as gifts from dinner guests who passed up giving him a nice set of matching glass crystal ashtrays. Then there was newly appointed American Israel Public Affairs Committee CEO Howard Kohr in his coming out appearance he agrees with Gabbay that for peace to be found for Israel, it will require granting the Arabs a new state (see video below) peopled by the citizens of the Palestinian Authority (PA), the fun group who reward terrorists commensurate on the number of Israelis…

MOREDimitris Avramopoulos, the European Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship, recently published a startling opinion, advocating for more immigration as an inescapable reality to which European citizens should just adapt without any further discussion.
The article illustrates much of what is wrong with European institutions, in particular the European Commission, a mixture of bureaucratic arrogance, false creed based on dogma rather than facts, and a disdain for democratic debate. The Commission, based in Brussels, is not elected but, according to EU treaties, it has a monopoly — yes, a monopoly — on initiating legislation at the European level. Each Commissioner is an appointed bureaucrat, one for each member state — often a former top politician, now sidelined in his country of origin, therefore with very little democratic legitimacy.
Benjamin Netanyahu’s short clip from my interview with Andrew Marr today on BBC.
He said “Iran wants to establish itself militarily in Syria, right next to Israel. Israel will not let that happen.”
Iran’s leaders openly call for the destruction of Israel, the United States and Britain.
Iran’s leaders call Israel “the little Satan”, Britain the “middle Satan” and the US “Great Satan”.
The Western world is silent when the Islamic Republic of Iran threatens to destroy Israel but screams when Israel defends itself.
Israel will not allow Iran to base its army on the borders of Israel and the Mediterranean.
If you support Israel’s right to defend itself, write “I stand with Israel” in the comments below and Share this post!
For writing and warning about political Islam, I was terminated as a director at the federal government’s Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF), an agency usually at arms-length from the federal government.
As I wrote at Jihad Watch:
I have been terminated from the Canadian Race Relations Foundation, four months after a threatening letter by Heritage Minister Melanie Joly about my writings on Islam at Jihad Watch,
Joly made good on her threats. The Privy Council has terminated my appointment, despite my years of dedicated commitment to the Foundation, on which I also served as Chair of the Investment Committee, and as a member of the Human Resource and Executive Committees. Why? Because I dared to criticize political Islam on Jihad Watch, and because of My Personal Warning to Icelanders, in which I warned about the deceptive works of Muslim Brotherhood operatives in their infiltration of the West. Their tactics are well documented.
I personally make a distinction between those who choose to practice Islam in peace and harmony with others, and those with an agenda to subvert democratic constitutions, demand special privileges over other creeds, and attack innocent people as a supremacist entitlement. It is odd to be removed from a race relations foundation for my private work in criticizing Islam, which is not a race.
