The Worth of Jewish Life.
Hitler found that Gentiles considered Jewish life cheap. He put a price on their heads for safe passage to other nations. To his surprise no one was willing to pay the price. They ended up in "The Final Solution"—the extermination of all Jews. Amazingly, Jewish life seems to remain an expendable commodity today. Several years ago Palestinians massacred 22 worshipers in the largest synagogue in Istanbul. There were bloody attacks in synagogues in Copenhagen, Antwerp, Argentina Jewish Center, Paris and Rome. Islamic and Palestinian groups rushed forward proudly to claim the "honor" for these attacks. There were other attacks, such as, the Israeli athletes murdered by Palestinians at the Munich Olympics, and the Achille Lauro Italian Cruise Ship hijacking and murder, and many more.
Since the signing of the Washington Peace Accords, over 400 Israelis have been murdered by Palestinian terrorists. On
All these murders of Israelis were not acts of a single distressed person but were planned by groups which the majority (or near majority) of Arab-Palestinians support. These terrorists' acts were not renounced by the Palestinian people or their leaders. Remember how the Arab-Palestinians cheered as Iraqi SCUD missiles flew overhead on their murderous mission to Israel? and how they danced when 3,000 Americans were killed in 911. The Hebron massacre was the act of one person. All the rest of Israel—including government leaders and settlers—renounced and denounced this horrible act.
Where are the outcries of world opinion or UN resolutions condemning the repeated atrocities by Arab-Palestinians? Why is the world so insensitive to the shedding of Jewish blood by many Arabs? Yet, when one sick Israeli committed an atrocity, the PLO—backed by an oil-rich Arab block—pressured the UN Security Council to pass a resolution condemning Israel. Where is the condemnation against Arab countries for expelling over a million Jews and their children while confiscating all their assets and Real estate 5-6 times the size of Israel (46,000 sq. miles)
Where violence is concerned, neither Israel nor any other nation is above scrutiny; but the persistency of outcry against Israel is suspect. Where Israel has erred, it will receive Divine retribution. The killing of innocent Israelis or Arabs is most tragic. We grieve for both the Israelis and Arabs who have had their loved ones torn from them.
The Historical Perspective.
At the breaking up of the Turkish Empire by the Allies at the end of W.W.I, both Arabs and Jews requested independent states. The world powers were generous in the extreme to the Arabs by granting them 21 independent Arab states, covering 5,414,000 square miles. The Jews asked the Allied powers to honor the San Remo Treaty of 1920 which is less than 1 percent of that vast territory. In 1917 and 1921 the Allied Powers agreed to this request. At the San Remo treaty of 1920 which was confirmed by the 1920 Treaty of Sevres and Lausanne. The Jewish people were allocated all of Palestine as a Jewish State while the Arabs were granted 21 states. The British as trustee for the Jewish people under the Mandate for Palestine, violated the Treaty and allocated 77% of the Jewish Territory in Palestine to the Arabs east of the Jordan river and created a new country named Jordan. As a consequence of "oil diplomacy" Israel now possesses a mere 0.2 percent of it. Tsippora Sasson, who was five months pregnant, was killed by Palestinians while riding in a car with her husband and two children, ages 6 and 9. She was shot in the head and abdomen. This happened seven days before the Hebron massacre. THE NEW YORK TIMES ("all the news that's fit to print") gave her murder a mere three sentences while dealing with the Hebron massacre almost on a daily basis (The Media Bias against Israel is appalling).
Rather than the rules allowing non-Muslims to ascend the Mount being from 2006, as was cited in Wikipedia, the rules have remain unchanged since 1924, as can be seen in an online copy of “A Brief Guide to Al-Haram Al-Sharif,” published by the Supreme Muslim Council in Jerusalem, in 1924, with this copy from 1925.
