But What Are They Incited With?

The killing of Eden Atias was another personal tragedy for a family in Israel that takes on wider implications in the minds of the rest of us.

David Horovitz, Founding Editor of The Times of Israel published a piece under the title: “When a Palestinian teen shed the last traits of humanity”. I found this title a little odd because of him evoking dehumanisation. In my opinion it is the dehumanisation of Jews in the eyes of Arabs that has led us to this.

I’ve written a response to this piece. It really needs a big push over on the Times of Israel to get noticed. For those of you who’ve read my writing about Islam for a long time, you might find it restrained. It is. I’m trying to reach an audience that doesn’t like to look deeper and see what exactly is being put into the minds of killers.

Here are the last three paragraphs, please read, like, share, tweet and spread it as widely as you can.

Israel has built schools, hospitals, infrastructure and dramatically advanced the living conditions of the Arabs in the disputed territories. This receives no thanks and was delivered in the face of unremitting terror attacks. Without the strong security measures, how many more Jews would have been killed?

But the more Jews do, the more Jews give, the greater the hatred of Jews becomes. It’s a kind of jealousy: each one of our successes highlights their failures. Is it time to study, honestly, the contemporary theology that provided the basis for the indoctrination of this young murderer?

We can never surrender enough to placate this foe. We’re locked in an endless war. That doesn’t mean we have to give up living here or being proud, independent Jews. But we must never let ourselves fall asleep thinking we’re safe.

It doesn’t matter what “peace” deals we sign, we’re still going to need to keep a few of these on hand.
