The Jews of the Middle East are people under almost constant assault by the hostile Arab majority population.
None of this is new, of course.
Arabs in that part of the world have called for the intimidation, humiliation, persecution, and murder of Jews since Muhammad started popularizing his fun-filled head-chopping policy.
Brandishing a dagger in a mosque, Muhammad Salah "Abu Rajab" said this:
Today, we realize why the [Jews] build walls. They do not do this to stop missiles, but to prevent the slitting of their throats.You know, if the Arabs within the land of Israel honestly want war, I feel reasonably certain that Israel can give them what they want.
My brother in the West Bank: Stab! My brother is the West Bank: Stab the myths of the Talmud in their minds! My brother in the West Bank: Stab the myths about the temple in their hearts!
Today, we have declared a curfew [in Israel]. Listen to what the Jews are saying to one another: Stay at home, or go outside to your death. They have no alternative. Oh men of the West Bank, the first phase of the operation requires stabbing in order to bring about a curfew.
But, as the old cliché goes, "be careful what you wish for, you may very well get it."
