The world expresses outraged when Muslims die; it is not outraged when Muslims kill. When Muslims burn Jews or massacre Christians, it shrugs and moves on
Muslim terrorists have been burning Jews alive with very little outrage and even less attention for generations. This war, in which cars and buses are torched with families still inside, is not the work of a tiny minority of extremists. Its perpetrators have the support of the Palestinian Authority
Only last week Inbar, a mother of three, was burned over 15% of her body after a Molotov cocktail was thrown at her car in Jerusalem. Yet despite her injuries, she was one of the lucky ones.
Last year Ayala Shapira, an 11-year-old girl, was on the way home with her parents when Muslim terrorists threw firebombs at the car, one of which smashed through the window and landed on Ayala’s lap, setting her hair and clothes on fire. Even though she had the courage to reach into the fire to unhook her seat belt and roll on the ground to put out the flames, she suffered third degree burns over 40% of her face and upper body.
Other children attacked by firebombs wielding Muslim terrorists were not so lucky.
Rachel Weiss and her three sons, Netanel age 3, Rafael age 2, and Efraim only 10 months, burned together on a passenger bus, with the young mother throwing herself over her children to try and protect them. All four were buried together in one grave.
Two American passengers had the misfortune of being on a bus to Jerusalem when terrorists used Molotov cocktails to set them on fire. Sandy was pushed into Elisha’s spring, named after the Biblical prophet who had healed the waters, later renamed Ain es-Sultan by the Muslim invaders seeking to honor their own murderous tyrant in place of the ancient prophet. The Muslim terrorists had mixed glue and gasoline so that the burning mixture would stick to the skin of their victims. It took years of surgery for the American couple to begin the road to recovery.
The terrorists charged with this heinous crime, Mahmoud Kharbish and Juma’a Adem, were freed by Israel under pressure from Obama and Kerry to bring the PLO back to the negotiating table. Along with other freed terrorists, they were hailed as heroes by President Abbas and were eligible for monthly salaries.
The Moses family was driving on a pre-holiday shopping trip before Passover when their car was struck by a Muslim firebomb. Ofra Moses, who was five-months pregnant, wasn’t able to get her seatbelt open and burned to death. It took her 5-year-old son Tal another three months to die of his burns. His 8-year-old sister Adi suffered severe burns as her father rolled her burning body in the sand to put out the flames. “I looked in the direction of our car and watched as my mother burned in front of my eyes,” she recalls. She still remembers lying bandaged while her little brother screamed in pain in the next room.
Mohammad Daoud, the Muslim terrorist who did this to the family, was given two life sentences and an additional 72 years. But when the PLO demanded his release, Obama and Kerry forced Israel to comply.
According to Jen Psaki, a State Department spokesman, throwing Molotov cocktails at Jews is not terrorism and then offered condolences to the attacker shot while throwing the firebomb. The Weiss and Moses families might disagree, but few of them survived to argue their case.
Israelis who kill Muslims are considered pariahs. Muslims who burn Jews to death are glorified as heroes. And there are many such aspiring heroes, eager for a Palestinian Authority salary funded by American and European foreign aid and a “Get Out of Jail Free” card dispensed by Obama and Kerry.
While the left would have you believe that the poor Palestinians are only “defending” themselves against Jewish aggression, burning Jews is not a new idea. The Jewish cemetery of old Oufrane in Morocco is a field of lonely broken stones. Among all the other shattered graves of their people, lie the ashes of fifty martyrs, Jews who had been burned to death for refusing to convert to Islam in 1790. In the same year that the Jews of Newport had thanked George Washington for his role in bringing about a nation “generously affording to all liberty of conscience”, Muslims were burning Jews to death for their conscience and their faith.
In 1875, as Bell was inventing the telephone, Jews were being burned to death under Islamic law in Iran. Over a century later, Ayatollah Khomeini told his followers, “Killing is a form of mercy… sometimes a person cannot be reformed unless he is cut up and burnt… you must kill, burn and lock up those in opposition.” Khomeini meant it literally. The origins of the Islamic Revolution of Iran lay in the Cinema Rex fire in which Islamic terrorists launched a false flag operation, locked the doors of the movie theater because of its blasphemous nature and set it on fire killing four hundred people.
