Lessons from Yesterday’s Terror Attack

While the Middle East conflict has resulted in the deaths of both Israeli and PLO Arab civilians, one can gauge the moral disparity between the sides by looking at both the way in which people have been killed, as well as the reactions in the wake of their deaths.

 

First take Israel. The IDF does not target innocent civilians, whose deaths are collateral damage. In fact, in most cases, the terrorists purposely hide amongst the civilians in order to protect themselves. It is thus the terrorists who bear most of the moral culpability in the event of PLO Arab civilian deaths. But be that as it may, in the event that civilians are killed during IDF operations, the IDF is quick to apologize and show its regret for the loss of life.

 

The PLO Arabs, on the other hand, deliberately target civilians. And when, like yesterday, Israelis are butchered, the PA issues condemnations like this one:

“We condemn all operations that target civilians whether Palestinians or Israelis. We strongly condemn this act which targets civilians. We don’t think it serves our cause, especially under the current circumstances. We ask everyone to stop targeting civilians completely because this does not serve our cause.”

In other words, we condemn the killing of civilians not because it is murder, not because it is immoral, but because presently, it does not benefit us.

 

For a further insight into the moral corruption of the PLO Arabs, look at this reaction from the mother of yesterday’s bomber:

“It’s immoral to send someone so young,” his mother, Samir Abdullah, 45, told the Associated Press. “They should have sent an adult who understands the meaning of his deeds.”

So don’t feel too sorry for her if the IDF demolishes her house.
