Temple Mount Outrage

I must write again about the “shenanigans” going on at the site of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Another Palestinian terror attack was launched against the Israelis again this week, leaving two dead and injuring three. Thankfully, the terrorists were killed. The attack took place just hours ago, as I write this.

After decades of mind-numbing non-discernment by our diplomats and politicians, one can hope that things are changing in terms of public patience with Palestinian idiocy. The murderous bent present in that society, particularly of course among the “leadership,” is unacceptable, grotesque, and unjust.

Murdering Jews for a century or more now, the local Arab population is intransigent and warped. My view is more harsh than even most pro Israel folks, but I’m really sick of it. The more the West has coddled the Palestinians, the more they turn to murder.

It’s murder. Simple as that.

From struggling Jewish immigrants a century ago, to the Munich murders, to the Fogel family in our time, Israelis have been targeted by the Palestine Liberation Organization for far too long.

Today’s murders on the Temple Mount took place near Lion’s Gate, on the east side of the Old City. As I wrote a few weeks ago, I was there last month. This is the gate through which Israeli paratroopers entered the Old City when it was captured in 1967.

Get this. After Friday’s attack, one of the killers ran back to the Temple Mount and was subdued by officers. He then pulled out a knife and tried to kill again, before being shot dead.

Can you explain this apart from demonic activity? I cannot fully fathom this murderous streak in the Arabs apart from a supernatural explanation.

Remember, even Arab mothers and children have attacked and murdered Israelis. This level of hatred, fomented by the depraved Yasser Arafat and his successor, Mahmoud Abbas, is unexplainable in the natural, in my opinion.

The murderers were actually Arab Israelis, from the northern town of Umm al-Fahm. According to The Times of Israel:

“The three attackers — Muhammad Ahmed Muhammad Jabarin, 29, Muhammad Hamad Abdel Latif Jabarin, 19, and Muhammad Ahmed Mafdal Jabarin, 19 — were all reportedly members of the now-illegal Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement, which is led by the firebrand Arab Israeli figure Raed Salah, who has served as mayor of Umm al-Fahm.

“The Islamic Movement’s Northern Branch was deemed illegal by Israel in November 2015. The group has been tied to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood.

“Following the attack, President Reuven Rivlin along with a number of Israeli politicians called for Arab Israeli Knesset members to condemn the attack. However, as of Friday afternoon, only one member of the Arab Joint List, its chairman Ayman Odeh, made a statement criticizing the attack to reporters or on social media.”

This kind of outrage will not stop until the Palestinians themselves feel real pain. If you think that statement is inflammatory, “pain” can mean many things. I sense a waking-up of people with regard to jihad launched by Muslims. People are sick of it. Sick of the extreme arrogance of Muslims that consider the rest of us subhuman.

Israel has closed the Temple Mount completely for at least two days. Good. I wish it would be permanently closed to Muslims, but at least the Israelis are doing something.

A tipping-point is coming with regard to the murderous impulses of Muslims who have been given a free pass for far too long.

We are not obligated to let them murder us.
