Relatives praise Fogel family murderer on Palestinian TV
During a program aired on Palestinian television last week, the aunt of one of the Palestinians who took part in the brutal murder of five members of the Fogel family in the West Bank last march referred to him as a "hero" and "legend."...
In response to the aunt's comments, the show's host said, "We also wish them (murderers) well."
The aunt went on to read a poem she had written in the murderers' honor, while Hakim Awad's mother sent her regards to her son and proudly mentioned that he was the perpetrator of the Itamar massacre.
Yes, how proud she must be.
And I know. I know. I know.
The problem is not with them so much as it is with me for highlighting this little bit of news. We're supposed to pretend that 5.5 million Jews are not surrounded by 300 to 400 million Arabs who do not want them there and that many of those are not more than happy to see them slaughtered.
If I say that, tho, it makes me a "racist" so it's better to pretend that it's Netanyahu's fault or Lieberman's fault or because Ariel Sharon was mean or because there are Jews who live where Barack Obama does not want them to.
