While the headlines continue to focus on the so called "Price Tag" youth of Yitzhar and supposedly other regions in Israel and the police are busy hunting down, arresting, and interrogating those who are arrested, the reality of the situation is not only ignored it is erased. What is the real situation? Here we have an unacceptable action of desecrating mosques, or buildings or puncturing tires by a group of people who are acting outside of normal human behavior.
On the whole it wouldn't surprise me if some of these culprits were being sent to carry out these abhorrent actions, as we have witnessed in past by the "special Jewish unit" in order to turn public opinion against the Jewish pioneers in Yesha and give credence to any destructive actions perpetrated against us.
I for one am tired of the ominous silence of even our representatives who are not responding to the situation by portraying the real face of the residents of our communities. I feel obligated to attempt to bring the truth out and let people see who we really are and how we live.
The intentional focus on these unacceptable acts is also intentionally ignoring the reality on the ground. Not only are we, the residents of Yesha under media fire. we are under terrorist attacks on a daily basis, sometimes with luck escaping unijured, sometimes injured and sometimes murdered. Yes- murdered ! Because unlike spray paint and disgusting words, the attacks are intentional attempts to murder us.
Here we are being verbally murdered by the press and various representatives of government and public figures who are intent on using these unacceptable actions to attack us and justify any measures used against the people anc communities in Yesha.
I will give an example of a purposely ignored reality - one that does not serve the agenda of those who are constantly attacking us in Yesha. Why is it never mentioned that we, volunteers in emergency rescue are called out day and night even inside of the PA regions to save Arab lives? Take unimportant me for example who like so many of us is a member of a family of victims of terror who lost family and loved ones to Arab terror.
Yes, I have some friends and aquaintances who are angry that I go out and save Arabs, but I disagree because I vowed that instead of filling my heart with hate, and letting the evil that is trying to destroy us win, I fill my heart with love for HaShem and vowed to do good in response to the hate and evil that is trying to destroy us.
We see our children who have witnessed the pain of loss and uncountable attacks against us go out and endanger their lives in order to protect the "innocent" Arabs when apprehending terrorists. Never forget that these young people not only have witnessed terror, the heartbreak of loss, the destruction of entire communities and uprooting of families in Gush Katif, and the enormous pain of having to remove loved ones from graves because of the destruction of the Gush and rebury them again.
These young people live with the pain of the release of terrorists - for what? For nothing - and the horrific return of bodies of terrorists to be celebrated as heroes of the same PA who are teaching to hate and murder us. And the response of the those representing the Law????? This is a role model for young people? These young people witness families thrown out of their homes in the middle of the night, they witness arrests and banishing of fathers for years from their families, homes, work, communities - for what? Many a time in the end after years of suffering these young people see them return home after never being charged - just because we live where we live.
I have heard and seen the pain of our youth, The confusion and disbelief of the actions taken against our people while all around the Arabs are building, driving on our roads, attacking us, as we pass signs warning us Jews of the danger of even stepping inside of the PA communities.
Enough of the hypocrisy and lies! You really want these unacceptable actions to cease?!? The YOU who are supposed to be role models cease and desist from the witch hunts, destruction and turn your attention to the REAL problem- remember who you are supposed to represent here in Israel- Mr. President who ignores the violence and hate of the PA, Mr. Prime Minister who along with the government betrays his mandate to protect, and care for the Jewish citizens of our homeland by releasing terrorists, and ignoring what every normal person sees and hears- the hatred directed against the Jewish State and citizens of Israel and how we are paying in blood for every terrorist or body of terrorists who are released.
If indeed we will see a change in the government , Police, Border Police, IDF in the actions taken against loyal citizens of Israel I do believe that if those guilty of the actions of "Tag Mechir- Price Tag" will cease - unless as is possible these are on the pay roll to carry out these actions in order to destroy the communities and residents of Yesha.
