Perhaps the most vile tactic that the Palestinian-Arabs use against their Jewish enemies in the Land of Israel is the usage of their own children as weapons of war.
In a piece by Judah Ari Gross and Itamar Sharon for the Times of Israel, we read:
One Israeli man was killed, and a second man was seriously wounded, in a suspected terror stabbing north of Jerusalem Thursday afternoon...In this most recent pogrom against the Jews of Israel - this Stabbing / Car Ramming Intifada - the Palestinian-Arab enemies of the Jewish people are using their own children as the weapon of choice. Most of the assailants in this current wave of irrational violence by Arabs against random Jews in the streets of Israel are hate-filled teenagers.
The two Palestinian stabbers were shot by an armed civilian, police said. The two, reported to be in serious condition, were also taken to hospitals in Jerusalem for treatment. They were 14-year-old boys from Beitunia near Ramallah, reports said.
What we are seeing, of course, is the result of decades of Palestinian-Arab incitement toward Jews and the inculcation of Jew Hatred into the hearts of their children within their own culture. What it has nothing whatsoever to do with is Jewish ill-treatment toward Arabs living within Jewish land.
One need merely take a glance at the Arab-Muslim Middle East to immediately understand that Arabs in Israel have it better on every level than do the great majority of Arabs throughout the Arab world. Arabs who live in Israel, including Judea and Samaria, are more well-educated, enjoy longer lives, and have much greater personal freedom and economic opportunity than do Arabs anywhere else throughout the region.
Thus, the cause of the conflict is not Jewish imposed deprivation upon the Arab population, but persistent, Koranically-based, irrational Arab-Muslim race-hatred toward their much demographically smaller Jewish neighbors.
The cause of the never-ending conflict has virtually nothing to do with the behavior of the millennia-long persecuted Jewish minority and everything to do with deep-seated theocratically-based race-hatred toward the Jewish people on the part of their former Arab conquerors.
This hatred toward the Jewish people by the Arabs of the Middle East is so culturally and psychologically entrenched that they are even willing to sacrifice their own children upon the altar of anti-Semitism.
Golda Meir was right.
We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.Indeed.
