Another congratulatory "mazel tov" goes out to the Israeli
Apache helicopter crew!
Many people, including Jews, were angry over some comments I made
about Sheik Yassin's death. How dare I express "any" joy
over the Sheik's demise. Many emails implied that, "I am no
different than all the terrorist groups who give out candy and march
through the streets in victory after a suicide bombing."
How did this twisted moral equivalence develop where the death
of evil is no longer a cause celebre of the decent? Remember that
great scene after WWII in Times Square, where hundreds of thousands
of people were celebrating the death of Hitler, and the Allied victory
I am proud that America and Israel have imbibed the Judeo-Christian
ethic that encourages fighting evil and destroying it. Of course,
the rest of the world is trying to make us feel guilty about our
values and incredibly moral actions. That is why America is hated
for liberating Iraq, and Israel is hated for standing up against
5 Arab countries that were intent on destroying it. When the Arab
nations became so fearful of tiny Israel after 3 wars, they proceeded
to create a new replacement weapon called the Palestinians.
For those Jews filled with rage at me and not at the terrorists
and their leaders, they obviously had not attended a synagogue during
the month of March. It was probably no coincidence that Sheik Yassin's
death coincided with the holiday of Purim, where Jews "joyously"
commemorate the death of Haman and his sons.
Whoever has not experienced this holiday, Christian, Jew, Muslim
or Secular, is certainly missing an important life experience. Fun
is the name of the game and even excessive drinking is encouraged.
There is screaming and cheering every time the evil Haman's name
is mentioned during the Scriptural readings. Yet some Jews remarkably
have contempt for my elation over the wonderful deaths of Yassin,
Rantisi and any future Hamas terrorist leaders. Coincidentally,
the word Haman is only one letter off from Hamas. Perhaps a little
divine revelation here.
A new, "progressive" European mentality has infected
the world in the 21st century with an overemphasis on love and compassion.
Although both of these traits are important, they must be properly
channeled along with justice. As The Talmud clearly states, "Those
who are compassionate when they should be cruel, will be cruel when
they should be compassionate." In fact, the cruelest regimes
in the world have criticized Israel at the UN for ridding the world
of this evil doctor.
Unlike Jack Straw, the morally confused foreign minister of Great
Britain, most Americans make a clear distinction between good and
evil, and the killing of innocents. The Straw man sees no difference
between a terrorist leader and a democratically elected head of
state. It is no wonder that America's Founding Fathers could not
wait to get the hell out of "Straw country by the Thames."
Any nation that places the word "Great" in front of its
name, must have some serious psychological issues with its own meager
talents. Other than Tony Blair and a few other select individuals,
the British have been infected by a morally decaying European Union.
In fact, the British are still angry with America over their loss
in the Revolutionary War.
Hamas leader Abdel Aziz al-Rantisi publicly announced that he would
prefer death by Apache over cardiac arrest. A partnership of God
and Ariel Sharon granted him his eternal wish. Rantasi, an ultra-arrogant
pediatrician from Gaza said, "I will not leave one Jew in Palestine."
He was absolutely correct because he left 5 million.
Hamas is a terrorist organization that must be dealt with in precisely
the same manner as al Qaeda. There is no difference between bin
Laden and Rantisi, except Rantisi is now pushing up daisies and
will likely be pure fertilizer by the time bin Laden joins him.
The elimination of these individuals should bring joy to the hearts
of every respectable man, woman and child. The bad guys are dead,
just like those happy endings in the great Hollywood movies.
The destruction of evil is a very healthy concept, although many
individuals seem disturbed by it. Evil is a cancer. Just like oncologists
provide us with a certain joy by destroying tumors and harmful cells,
there should be an equivalent emotional high in "burning evil
out of our midst." We should not feel sorry for cancer or terrorists.
The terrorist strategy is a death cult that declares victory when
they are killed. How is that for an inverted truth? Remember when
victory meant that you destroyed your enemy? The evil terrorists
cannot face the reality of consistently losing their battles, so
they have invented a totally new military strategy that defines
victory with defeat. Being sent to Club Med-Heaven to have imaginery
relations with 72 virgins has become all the rage.
It is indeed humiliating that the entire Arab and Muslim world
of 1.2 billion people cannot defeat 5 million Jews in Israel, nor
match any of their accomplishments in science, technology, literature
or medicine. It is humiliating that Israel actually does what it
says it will do to terrorist leaders, while these macho-terrorist
bosses talk a big game. It is humiliating that virtually every Arab
and Muslim leader saw "themselves" in the Saddam capture
video and the Rantisi funeral procession . It is humiliating to
the world that tiny Israel and America pretty much alone does what
it wants throughout the world in fighting and destroying evil. Let
the celebration begin; hooray!
