Reader comment on item: Are the Palestinians the World's Most Radicalized Population?

BS"D

But what about the "Palestinian" people? Although forced to listen to the madness of their leaders, perhaps they don't believe it.

The best illustrations I can provide to justify my estimation of these people, gleaned by following their actions over the past 6 years, are gruesome and graphic. Perhaps the most famous is the "lynch" of the two Israeli soldiers who made a wrong turn in Ramallah. They were set upon by hundreds of "Palestinians" who kicked, and beat them into an unrecongnizable pulp.

The reason I think that incident is instructive can be summed up in three photos.

The first is of the hate-crazed mob attacking the victims. What I find most disturbing (other than it happening at all) is the woman you can see just to the left of center.

There was an even more sickening picture of the crowd, at a different time, in which another woman was present, but which I can't find it online anymore. That woman was also only a few feet away, and she held a small child in her arms. What kind of people is so addicted to savagery that they go out of their way to give their kids a front-row seat?!

The second shows a young "Palestinian" man proudly displaying his blood-stained hands to the crowd.

No effort was made by the Arabs to find or punish him. It wasn't until a special Israeli undercover unit found and captured him that he was brought to justice

But the third is the most disturbingly reflective of the attitudes of the "Palestinians."
"The Israeli newspaper Maariv includes a photo of a young Palestinian girl at her kindergarten graduation holding up hands dipped in red paint in emulation of the scene at the lynching of two Jewish reservists in Ramallah, were the murderers showed their bloody hands to the crowd."

Although reprehensible, it's one thing to act out evil impulses in the heat of passion, for which one is ashamed later. But it's something far worse to justify the evil after the fact, and gloify it by giving it an exalted place in one's popular culture, even to the extent of indoctrinating the youngest by having them act it out.

Should we respect what they demand as their "right" to "self-determination?" I don't think so.
