Please note that your humble servant will be en route to his home in Israel on Saturday and Sunday. Israelstreet will return to normal publication on Monday morning, Israel time. Thank you for your indulgence.
Another Dead Israeli Because of Political Correctness
Back on May 26 after a particularly gruesome 24 hours of Palestinian terror attacks including three stabbing attacks, your humble servant wrote this:
“And what is the Israeli government doing about these increased attacks?
Unbelievably, giving even more concessions to the Palestinians.
To help the Palestinians celebrate Ramadan (the Palestinians help us celebrate our holidays by trying to kill us), Palestinians are being encouraged to visit relatives in Israel, visit their families abroad, and pray on the Temple Mount. If past Ramadans are any indication, more than 1,000,000 Muslims will come to Jerusalem to worship at Al-Aksa.
It is all enough to make your humble servant sick.
For what happens every time these politically correct gestures are offered? Inevitably, terrorists come into the country and kill Israeli men, women, and children–at which point the gestures are revoked. It is an absurd cycle that endlessly repeats itself.”
So what happened yesterday?
Exactly what your humble servant predicted. Three Palestinian terrorists from Judea and Samaria traveled to Jerusalem and staged two terror attacks carried out with semi-automatic weapons and knives.
23 year old Hadas Malka, a Border Policewoman who heroically tried to stop one of the terrorists, was savagely stabbed to death. Again, to state it clearly, the only reason Malka is dead today is because of the sickening political correctness of the Netanyahu government.
So what happened shortly after the attacks?
Exactly what your humble servant predicted. PM Netanyahu revoked one of the Ramadan gestures that allowed the terrorists to get to Jerusalem–specifically the one allowing immediate family members from the West Bank to visit relatives in Israel.
But inexplicably, Netanyahu decided to continue to let Palestinians pour into Israel in order to pray in Jerusalem. It is still seven days until Ramadan ends on June 24. How many more Israelis will be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness between now and then?
It is an absolutely sickening cycle that takes place during every Ramadan.
Blessed be the memory of Hadas Malka:
a brave young Israeli who should not have died.
