Op-Ed: Jewish Lives are Worthless,Their Murder Doesn't Count

What is Israel's raison d'etre?
Published: Monday, July 29, 2013 10:07 PM


Ofrah Moses was pregnant when she was murdered along with her son and her fetus.  The murderer was Mohammed A'del Daud, who threw a petrol bomb at their car in 1987.  He is about to be set free by Benjamin Netanyahu in order to prove to the world the Jews are Untermenschen whose lives are worthless and whose murder does not count.  The Israeli Left is cheering Netanyahu on!  The road to peace depends on Jews acquiescing in being defined and treated as sub-humans, whose lives have no worth.

Rachel Weiss was burned to death together with her three small children in 1988 when the bus she was riding in was attacked by petrol bombs.  The murderer was Mahmoud Abu-Charbeesh.   He is about to be set free by Benjamin Netanyahu in order to prove to the world the Jews are Untermenschen whose lives are worthless and whose murder does not count.

In 1985 Meir ben Yair and Michal Cohen were sitting in their car in a forest near Beit Shemesh when they were murdered by Mustafa Ganimat, together with his two terrorist friends.  He is about to be set free by Benjamin Netanyahu in order to prove to the world the Jews are Untermenschen whose lives are worthless and whose murder does not count.

Leah Almakeis and Yosef Eliyahu were murdered while hiking in a forest on Mt. Gilboa.  Their murderer was Othman bni Chasin.  He is about to be set free by Benjamin Netanyahu in order to prove to the world the Jews are Untermenschen whose lives are worthless and whose murder does not count.

Isa Abd Rabo murdered Ravital Sri and Ron Levi near the Chrimison monastery, stabbing them to death.  He is about to be set free by Benjamin Netanyahu in order to prove to the world the Jews are Untermenschen whose lives are worthless and whose murder does not count.

One  of Israel's leading historians, Professor Menachem Stern, was murdered in 1989, stabbed to death by Mahmoud Isa Muammar in the Valley of the Cross in Jerusalem.  The terrorist also murdered three other people.   He is about to be set free by Benjamin Netanyahu in order to prove to the world the Jews are Untermenschen whose lives are worthless and whose murder does not count.

The above are just a few of the murderers of men, women and children that Benjamin Netanyahu is about to set free in order to prove to the world the Jews are Untermenschen whose lives are worthless and whose murder does not count.

Netanyahu is setting these murderers free as "payment" for the PLO to go through the motions of participating in make-pretend "negotiations," and as a sop for John Kerry.   Netanyahu is "paying" for the Kodak moment in the currency of mass murderers, all so the PLO will sit down with some Israeli representatives and demand that Israel be annihilated by means of the "Palestinian Right of Return," this after Israel "returns" to its pre-1967 Auschwitz borders and offers the PLO swaths of pre-1967 Israeli lands.  Netanyahu will be setting free 104 murderers as the purchase price for this show.

Some suppose that Netanyahu is doing this in order to obtain some other concessions.  From the Americans, from the Eurotrash, or from the Arabs. Netanyahu is afraid to put the proposal for wholesale release of mass murderers up for a ballot referendum because he knows it would be overwhelmingly defeated.

Let me say that if the price for an everlasting peace with the "Palestinians" were indeed the wholesale release of these murderers, then I would choose not to release them. I prefer a thousand years of warfare to a situation in which the Israeli government proclaims that the Jews are Untermenschen whose lives are worthless and whose murder does not count.   If the price for American materiel is the release of these mass murderers, then I prefer to forego the materiel.  If the price for a strategic understanding with the EU and Turkey needed to rein in Iran is the wholesale release of these mass murderers, then I choose to forego the strategic understanding.

Israel was created for the simple purpose of proclaiming to the world that the Jews are NOT Untermenschen whose lives are worthless and whose murder does not count.   Those who threaten Jewish lives will be exterminated.  That is why Israel exists.  This is the raison d'etre of the state.   When Netanyahu abandons this, he undermines the purpose and legitimacy of the country.   Someone who refuses to accept this axiom as the fundamental basis for the existence of the state is unworthy of holding office in Israel.

                                                                                                                   

Even the Labor Party Mensheviks always refused to adopt such a policy of national self-abasement.  The United States does not release terrorist mass murderers of Americans.  That is because the United States considers the lives of Americans to have value.

Benjamin Netanyahu and his friends on the Israeli Left want those who murder Jews to be proclaimed great heroes. To serve as role models. To demonstrate that murder of Jews is ethical and admirable.

There can be no more convincing argument in favor of implementing capital punishment for terrorists than this circus of the absurd that Netanyahu is now orchestrating.
