How Today’s Terror Victim And Terrorist Are Remembered

Today’s terror victim, Eviatar Borovsky, is remembered as a gentle soul:

Eviatar Borovsky, 31, was supposed to attend rehearsal for a new improvisation play of the Ar’el theater group for Jewish culture Tuesday morning, but before his friend arrived at the Tapuach junction to pick Borovsky up, the latter was stabbed to death by Salem Zaal, 24, from the village of Shucha near Tulkarem.

Borovsky, resident of the Yitzhar settlement, is survived by a wife and five children. His friend Oshri Meimon, who was supposed to pick him up Tuesday morning, told Ynet that terror victim was “a talented man who would always laugh at everything.”

Assaf Paniel, another friend from the theater group said that “as soon as we heard about the attack we tried to make it to his house in Yitzhar, so we could be with his wife and the family, but the army was blocking the road.”

Though 14 years have passed since Borovsky graduated from the Hispin yeshiva, head of the yeshiva Rabbi Moshe Egozi, remembered Borovsky fondly, noting that “he was a special man, very spiritual, alternative, abstract; a very gentle person.

“We met again later in life when we started an alumni seminary at the yeshiva,” Egozi added. “We started the seminary so as to promote the study of alternative spirituality, in which Eviatar was always interested.”

Meanwhile, here is how “moderate” Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah remembers his murderer:

This morning, an Israeli father of five Evyatar Borovsky was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist at the Tapuach Junction, north east of the Israeli city Ariel and south of the Palestinian city Nablus in the West Bank.

Fatah’s Facebook page is celebrating the murder and glorifying the murderer. Pictures of the terrorist and the victim were posted by Fatah’s Facebook administrator and the text calls the murderer: “The hero, the released prisoner, Salam Al-Zaghal.”

The following are the texts and pictures from Fatah’s Facebook page celebrating the murder:

    This is why I think terrorist murderers should be found guilty, taken outside, put against a wall, and shot.

    I would be happy to pay for the bullets.

    and what got press? the response by his neighbors, which while wrong, is understandable

    the targeting and justified assasination of an arab pig terrorist in gaza…which unlike american drome strikes…killed not a single “innocent” bystander

    the arabs are so lucky that israel is not russia

    cuz the the west bank and gaza would end up like chechniya

    • Aryeh

      Like Chechnya? You mean, a terrorist “president” of their own, the largest mosque in Europe, paramilitary police forces that are not subjected to any authority except Kadyrov himself, tons of money flowing to those animals from Moscow — the money of the Russian people, hundreds of thousands of Chechens in Moscow who behave there as if it was their own city and its inhabitants were their personal slaves, with total impunity? No, thanks God Israel is not Russia, a country that lets a hostile people be in charge in its very capital and to suck out all its resources.

        there is a puppet gov in chechniya

        and during the chechen uprising, moscow killed thousands with impunity

        • Aryeh

          This “puppet” gov’t gets lots of money from Putin. So it’s a great question who is the puppet here. But in general, Russians are not very concerned with wellbeing of their killers. Sometimes the West takes the issue of human rights too seriously, even when it’s against their own interests.

          BTW, there is no such thing as “human right”. Nobody owes anything to some guy merely because he’s a “human”. There are no rights without obligations. One has the right to life as long as he lets others the same. Otherwise he cannot be entitled to live. This is how it should work. One has to earn one’s rights.

    That murder with impunity because they know they can. Now, Israeli doctors will do their best to save the animal’s life and then he will be released, like he and others like his are, as a ‘ good gesture.’

    When will Israeli government start to value Jewish life at least as much as they do that of the enemy? When will Israeli intellectual elites start to value the lives of fellow Jews over the opinions of antisemitic Westerners?

    ‘My son was killed just for being Jewish’

    Thousands attend funeral of Yitzhar resident Evyatar Borovsky, who was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist at Tapuach Junction • Settlers demand government take action, say “writing was on the wall in blood” • Fatah’s Facebook page glorifies terrorist.

    He was stabbed multiple times in the chest.

    “Evyatar was a righteous, God-fearing man, who loved life. He loved making people laugh and he was extremely funny. He studied to be a medical clown and saw it as his vocation, to make patients smile and laugh. He didn’t care if they were Jewish or Arab.”
