I was actually a bit amused yesterday to read that Fatah’s arch-terrorist Marwan Barghouti quoted the great Jewish scientist Albert Einstein’s famous quote that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. The media-friendly Barghouti, currently serving several terms of life imprisonment for masterminding mass murders of Jews in the streets of Israel, actually was quoting the right Jew in this case, and there is much that we can learn from that quote in confronting the latest terror wave that is raging in the streets of Israel.

That terror wave, by the way, is being masterminded, and most likely financed by the Fatah terrorist organization, led by Mahmoud Abbas and Barghouti, as the heir apparent, if not for the inconvenient fact that he's in jail. As reported by Palestinian Media Watch, Fatah leaders have been publicly praising the terrorists who’ve carried out the most recent shootings and stabbings as “martyrs” and “heroes”. Among others, Fatah Central Committee member Mahmoud Al-Aloul called for Palestinian Arab youth to "rise up against the enemies," calling the youth "potential martyrs for the beloved Palestine.”

Unlike the "cultured" Europeans, who haven't got a clue when it comes to responding to Islamic aggression, even in their own backyard, most Israelis instinctively know that the Arabs, especially the Jihadists among them, only respect those who speak their language of strength, or at least act with disproportionate force. The time for dilly-dallying, otherwise known as measured responses, has long passed. It’s time to burn the ground under their feet until they raise up the white flags of surrender and plead on their knees for Jewish mercy, as they did in 1948 and 1967.

Start by flattening the Palestinian Authority's Mukata headquarters in Ramallah and the Hamas headquarters in Gaza. That’s where the orders are coming from for the terror attacks. The Arabs like to promote their "days of rage", but it's all a bluff. In truth, there is no such thing as “spontaneous rage”. The orders come from the terror heads and their sinister network.

It’s time for the enemy to understand that Jews can also have “rage”. And that Jews will be allowed to build homes throughout our land. No more fear and no more hesitation. The best defense is a good offense. Let’s get started.
