What people value: compare and contrast

Some of the most profound lessons are taught through irony, that striking contrast between what we would expect to happen in a sequence of events and what really does happen. Last week, the Fogel family was nearly wiped out, parents and children —an infant!— slaughtered as they laid down for the evening by Muslim jihadists of the Palestinian Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades.

Then, yesterday, a Palestinian woman rushes to the gates of the village where the Fogels’ relatives were sitting shiva and begged for help to save her baby. Did the Israelis, still in mourning for the dead and still angry over the atrocity, do the predictable thing and turn her away?

No, in fact:

Just as IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz arrived in Neve Tzuf to offer his condolences, a Palestinian cab raced towards the community’s entrance. In it, soldiers and paramedics discovered a Palestinian woman in her 20s in advanced stages of labor and facing a life-threatening situation: The umbilical cord was wrapped around the young baby girl’s neck, endangering both her and her mother.

The quick action of settler paramedics and IDF troops deployed in the area saved the mother’s and baby’s life, prompting great excitement and emotions at the site where residents are still mourning the brutal death of five local family members.

And so a people whose culture values life —“l’chaim!” “To life!”— rush to save the life of a mother and child, even though they come from their enemies and even though they themselves are still reeling from what happened.

Meanwhile, a people whose culture values death over life pass out sweets to celebrate the successful murder of a mother and her children.

Quite a contrast.

    Ya just cain’t make this stuff up!

    Some day the Democraps (in this case, the Palestinians) may learn…

    Islam is relativistic.

    Judaism is not.

    There’s the difference.

  3. BeeKay says:

    Correction: Orthodox Judaism is not relativism. Reformed Judaism is highly relativistic.

    The “palestinian” (short hand for Animalistic Arab Brute Who Practices Islam) who murdered the Israeli family is not deserving of any understanding or human compassion. He was raised to murder and kill under Arafat probably— while Bill Clinton preened on the Road Map for an adoring liberal elite crowd in America. This human verminous scumbag learned his craft— murder and kill Jews. Now we have a new “palestinian” being born to a woman who was also raised under Arafat more than likely. At what point will this new mother be able to tell the truth about how she “feels” about the enemy? Will the virtuous “palestinian” community allow such dissent? Or will they cut her throat too? By the way, I wonder what the body count is for uncooperative “palestinians” who just say NO! to Hamas and al-Aqsa’s brand of genocidal mania? Can’t imagine all the community organizers they have among the people who spy on their allegiances and deepest concerns, making sure the rank and file tow the line. Somehow, as this new mother story suggests, there might be dissent in the “palestinian” monolith the western press has created.

    Carpet bomb Gaza and Damascus. Flood the tunnels that go into Egypt. Assasinate the Muslim Brotherhood’s middle management in Egypt. Decertify Muslim Student Association on all US college campuses. Prosecute all MSA members under RICO statutes for racketeering. Sink all ships leaving Syrian and Iranian harbors headed for Gaza. Take out the Hamas and al-Aqsa middle managers. Disrupt the human supply chain. Force them to retrain leaders. De-escalate the build up to war by destabilizing the enemy.

    Saving babies is noble. Saving your own civilians is moreso. The “palestinians” and the Egyptian jihadis operate on the old gang principle of “blood in blood out”. So may it be, but on Israeli terms.

    10 “palestinians” for every Israeli. Can you tell I am fed up with this parlor trick among the Western press where the true David has been perverted into some kind of Goliath because 1) they are better armed than their enemies; and 2) better entrepreneurs who make their end of the desert flower like a greenhouse, while the descendants of Ham flounder in Western largesse and their own sewage?

    Enough. Give the death culture what it wants: it’s own death. Disrupt Iran’s party. Kill the snakes in their nest. Do it in spite of the Joke in the White House. He is a joke. And a Muslim one at that. Insecure and paranoid: the calling card of Islam. Lucky for now they are getting a pass by the western press. If they weren’t they’d be covered in hives and eczema because their self-loathing is so profound.

    ROFLMAO. I haven’t ranted like this in months. :)

    Good and evil are easy to tell apart once the lies are cleared away and the face of each is revealed.

    The incontrovertible and clueless pile of jello in the WH will never make a decision that affects his Muslim brothers until he sees that he’s about to lose his grip on the nation, at which point he’ll spread pollsters throughout the land to test what is most popular, then do it (so long as it doesn’t undercut any of his social programs).

    That’s his MO, not his wife.

    Carlos, This pile of jello that you speak of; is truly a member of the single-cell division. AND he’s got the Repub Congress caving… This is deja vu; don’t you remember the GREAT Wizard of OZ? All smoke and mirrors , and no substance! Only, if I had a pair of Ruby red shoes…
