Somehow our society in general has lost the idea that you put antisocial killers in jail so that they cannot continue in their crimes. It seems that in recent years we have a tendency to put them in charge of countries and give them money. This does not promote peace.
Arutz Sheva reported over the weekend that Palestinian Arabs shot at a number of Jewish worshippers at Kever Yosef (Joseph’s Tomb) near Shechem. Several hours later they set fire to the tomb.
Power Line added further details yesterday:
“Today it was the PA police forces themselves that did the shooting, murdering one Israeli and wounding four others who had gone to pray at Joseph’s tomb on the morning before the last day of Passover. The one murder victim (so far) has been identified as 24-year-old Ben Yosef Livnat, a nephew of Likud Minister Limor Livnat and the father of four children, so the celebrations in the territory controlled by the PA must be grand indeed. Palestinian Arabs proceeded to desecrate Joseph’s tomb and attack Livnat’s funeral procession. I should add that in Haaretz, one spokesman for the Israelis on the West Bank makes the point linking PA incitement with the Fogel murders in connection with toda’s events.
“Arutz Sheva adds this piquant detail. The PA police forces continued to fire at the cars of the Jews observing Passover as they fled from the site. Were the Palestinian security forces among those trained by General Dayton and the United States? Perhaps some American reporter will care to ferret out the facts.”
Meanwhile, America continues to send money to Palestine, and Palestine moves forward on its plan to declare statehood through the United Nations in September. Unless someone wakes up quickly, we are on our way to creating another terrorist state–only this time the United Nations (with the cooperation of the United States) will be the organization that created it!
