Palestinians Celebrate Murders At Israeli Torah School

Friday, March 7th, 2008

Warning: Graphic Photos.

True to form, the Pali terrorist and their supporters (all the rest of the Palestinians), are out celebrating the horrific murder of Israeli teens at a Torah school in Jerusalem. In their usual cowardly style, the Pali terrorist attacked unarmed civilians; mostly teen students. Eight students were killed and nine were wounded.
A terrorist spokesman had this to say:
“This heroic attack in Jerusalem is a normal response to the crimes of the occupier and its murder of civilians”.
How heroic is it to walk into a room crowded with unarmed teens and open fire on them? Will the world even remember that the reason innocent Palestinians are killed is because the terrorist take refuge in houses and buildings packed with innocent women and children, then fire on Israeli forces, in an attempt to draw their fire towards these “human shields”? Will the world remember that the reason the Israeli military went into Gaza in the first place was to end continuous Pali terrorist rocket attacks against Israeli civilian cities and towns?
I doubt it very much!!
So while the Israeli’s are dealing with this:

Torah School Killings

The Palestinians are doing this:
Pali Celebration

Pali Celebration

JERUSALEM — Hamas Islamists have claimed responsibility for a Jerusalem shooting attack at a Jewish religious school that killed eight people, Reuters reports.

Hamas militants cheered over the deadly shooting as thousands of Palestinians took to the streets of Gaza to celebrate Thursday amid recent armed conflicts in the Hamas-controlled strip.

Earlier, a gunman entered the library of a rabbinical seminary and opened fire on a crowded nighttime study session Thursday, killing eight people and wounding nine before he was slain, police and rescue workers said. It was the first major militant attack in Jerusalem in more than four years.

Previous reports said there were two gunmen and quoted a death toll of at least 10.

“This heroic attack in Jerusalem is a normal response to the crimes of the occupier and its murder of civilians,” Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said.

Hamas stopped just short of claiming responsibility for the Jerusalem shootings. “We bless the operation. It will not be the last,” Hamas said in a statement sent to reporters by text message.

Israeli defense officials said the attacker came from east Jerusalem, where the city’s Palestinians live. They have Israeli ID cards that give them freedom of movement in Israel, unlike Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza. Police would not provide more details Friday, but several residents of the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber gave his name as Alaa Abu Dhein, 20, and said he had worked as a driver at the seminary. His family set up a mourning tent Friday and hung green Hamas flags outside their home.

Abu Dhein was arrested by Israeli authorities four months ago and then released two months later, they said. The residents would not give their names because the family had not authorized them to release the information.

At mosques in Gaza City and the northern Gaza Strip, many residents performed prayers of thanksgiving — only performed in cases of great victory to thank God.

At his West Bank headquarters, moderate Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas condemned the attack. “The president condemned all attacks that target civilians, whether they are Palestinian or Israeli,” a statement said.

The day’s violence, which also included a deadly ambush of an army patrol near Israel’s border with Gaza, was likely to complicate attempts by Egypt to arrange a truce between Israel and Palestinian militants. The U.S. is backing the Egyptian effort.

Israeli government spokesman Mark Regev harshly condemned the shooting and said the Palestinian government must take steps against the extremists — not just denounce their attacks.

“Tonight’s massacre in Jerusalem is a defining moment,” he told The Associated Press. “It is clear that those people celebrating this bloodshed have shown themselves to be not only the enemies of Israel but of all of humanity.”

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, who only on Wednesday persuaded Abbas to return to peace talks with Israel, condemned the attack as an “act of terror and depravity.”

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the attacker walked through the seminary’s main gate and entered the library, where witnesses said some 80 people were gathered. He carried an assault rifle and pistol, and used both weapons in the attack. Rosenfeld said police were also searching for an explosives belt.

Two hours after the shooting, police found the body of the eighth victim. Rescue workers said nine people were wounded, three seriously.

David Simchon, head of the seminary, said the students had been preparing a celebration for the new month on the Jewish calendar, which includes the holiday of Purim. “We were planning to have a Purim party here tonight and instead and instead we had a massacre,” he told Channel 2 TV.

Yehuda Meshi Zahav, head of the Zaka rescue service, entered the library after the attack. “The whole building looked like a slaughterhouse. The floor was covered in blood. The students were in class at the time of the attack,” he said. “The floors are littered with holy books covered in blood.”

Witnesses described a terrifying scene during the shooting, with students jumping out windows to escape.

“Special Report: Tracing the Left’s Escalating War on Military Recruiters” by Michelle Malkin

Friday, March 7th, 2008

Michelle Malkin has an excellent writeup with pictures of the increasingly violent anti-military protesters. Take some time and read the whole article. Caution: explicit language and pictures.

Ideas have consequences. Inaction has consequences. For the past several years, I’ve chronicled the Left’s escalating war on military recruiters–and the apathetic, weak-kneed response to it. In Unhinged, I devoted a sub-section of my chapter “They Don’t Support Our Troops” to the organized campaign of harassment against recruitment offices on college campuses nationwide. The anti-recruiter thugs have thrived thanks to a combination of public indifference, law enforcement fecklessness, and left-wing ideological apologism. As you may recall, I have personal experience with the anti-recruiter propagandists, who lie through their teeth, exploit media sympathy, and harbor nothing but raw hatred for the men and women who protect and defend their rights to bitch and moan.

Many observers wanted to shut out any possibility that yesterday’s bombing at the Times Square recruitment center was ideologically motivated. With the disclosure last night that House Democrats received a massive, anti-Iraq war screed and photo of the apparent perpetrator gloating about the destructive deed before it took place, only the blind, deaf, and dumb will persist in denying that this was a deliberate act of anti-military domestic terrorism.

Will any on the left and in the Democrat Party raise their voices–loudly and clearly–to condemn the ongoing, militant anti-recruiter campaign?

Will they urge the Code Pinkos and their ilk to halt their intimidation and obstruction efforts?

Or will they continue to sit silently and attempt to downplay yesterday’s bombing as an isolated incident– instead of the all-too-predictable symptom of reckless tolerance for dangerous “peace”-peddlers skating on the edge of sedition?

Context matters. Drawing on my past reporting and blogging, here is a brief history of the anti-military recruitment movement’s mounting acts of vandalism and violence (which is by no means comprehensive and which I’ll continue to amend as commenters and readers remind me of other incidents). Let the apologists and pooh-poohers delude themselves into believing that the Times Square bombing was a “lone” act. The facts speak for themselves:

“CHILD SACRIFICE: How the Islamist Death Cult is Destroying a Generation of Youth” from WorldNetDaily

Friday, March 7th, 2008

Almost everyone agrees that there’s nothing more beautiful than a young child – the brightness of spirit, the innocence, the natural intelligence are breathtaking.

What, then, possesses an angelic little girl to chant confidently in front of television cameras: “When I wander into Jerusalem, I will become a suicide bomber”? Or a little boy to exclaim: “We will destroy the chair of the despots, so they will taste the flame of death”?

What has happened to these children in their earliest, most vulnerable and tender years to poison their souls and set many on the path ultimately to madness and murder?

What goes on in their homes, schools and mosques that induces them to strap on explosive belts and kill themselves and countless unsuspecting innocents in a pizza parlor?

How, after growing up in a home with a mother and father and brothers and sisters, can a young man suddenly stab his own sister to death – knifing her not just once or twice, but dozens and dozens of times, like a maniacal serial murderer – just because she supposedly held hands or was seen in public with a male who wasn’t a relative?

In a spine-straightening investigative report titled “CHILD SACRIFICE,” WND’s acclaimed Whistleblower magazine shines a 1,000-watt spotlight on the mind-numbing barbarism of radical Islam.

Subtitled, “How the Islamist death cult is destroying a generation of youth,” this groundbreaking edition unveils shocking insight into what’s really behind:

  • Reports of children’s television programs that feature demonic clones of Mickey Mouse, Sesame Street characters and other kids’ favorites, in which the “lovable” stars teach children lies, hatred and murder.
  • Reports of rape victims being flogged and imprisoned, as when a Saudi court recently sentenced a 20-year-old female victim, who had been gang-raped by seven men, to 200 lashes and six months in prison for the crime of being in a car with a man not her husband, brother, or father. (Thanks to intense international pressure, Saudi King Abdullah finally pardoned the rape victim.)
  • Reports of “sermons” delivered by top Islamic clerics openly calling for mass murder, such as this one by Dr. Ahmad Abu Halabita, former acting rector of the Islamic University in Gaza: “O brother believers, the criminals, the terrorists, are the Jews, who have butchered our children, orphaned them, widowed our women and desecrated our holy places and sacred sites. They are the terrorists. They are the ones who must be butchered and killed, as Allah the Almighty said: ‘Fight them: Allah will torture them at your hands, and will humiliate them and will help you to overcome them, and will relieve the minds of the believers’ … Have no mercy on the Jews, no matter where they are, in any country. Fight them, wherever you are. Wherever you meet them, kill them. Wherever you are, kill those Jews and those Americans who are like them …”
  • Reports – perhaps 5,000 every year, according to the U.N. – of “honor killings” in which fathers, brothers or mothers brutally murder their own daughter/sister merely for being seen in public with a male or similar “offense.” For example, two Jordanian brothers used axes to hack to death their two sisters, aged 20 and 27, in an “honor killing” after the older sister left home to marry a man without her family’s permission. Her younger sister later ran away to join her. “It was a brutal scene,” one official said, according to the Jordan Times. “One victim’s head was nearly cut clean off.”
  • Reports of young girls tortured and raped into converting to Islam. Mary, an 18-year-old Egyptian girl, was brutally abducted, raped and held captive for nine months by Islamic kidnappers who poured sulfuric acid on her wrist to remove the tattooed cross she wore as a statement of her Christian faith. Along with enduring the sexual abuse, she was required to fast, pray and memorize portions of the Quran. Though at first she refused to wear the traditional Islamic veil, Mary later told reporters, “They warned me that if I removed it they would throw acid on my face.” Eventually, under unbearable pressure and abuse from her captors, she signed official papers of conversion to Islam.
  • Reports of maniacal “religious police,” such as those in Saudi Arabia who on March 11, 2002, allowed 15 young girls to die horrible deaths when a fire broke out in their school in Mecca. The religious police literally stopped firefighters from saving the girls because they weren’t dressed in the proper Islamic way for girls and women to be seen outdoors. With helpless firemen watching, the religious police literally beat the girls – those who were not wearing their headscarves or abayas – back into the inferno.
  • “This is full-fledged, criminally pathological madness,” says WND and Whistleblower Managing Editor David Kupelian. “It’s rooted in a lethal combination of hatred and insane philosophy, both so deeply implanted and so massively reinforced that there is barely a person reading these words that can even begin to comprehend such extreme child abuse.”
