Sick. Ever since the liberation of Auschwitz, the grim byproducts of communal anti-Semitism have been illustrated in heart-rending photos and news stories — but reports of jubilant Gazans passing out candy to celebrate the Saturday’s vicious terrorist slashing of three Jewish children and their parents — including a three-month-old baby — has to rank among the worst.
Gaza residents from the southern city of Rafah hit the streets Saturday to celebrate the terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar where five family members were murdered in their sleep, including three children.
Residents handed out candy and sweets, one resident saying the joy “is a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank.”
Harm? A community who’s main export is bus, bulldozer, rocket, restaurant, and schoolyard bloody murder, complains about the “harm inflicted” by Israel?
Yeah, right. Kind of like the “harm” that General MacArthur inflicted on the Japanese by stopping their reign of terror on the Philippines.
Because those revelers believe that Israel babies deserve to be stabbed, blown up, crushed, and incinerated to atone for the “harm” that Israel “inflicted” upon their Arab neighbors from hell. That is, of course, if you define “inflict[ing] harm” as repeatedly cleaning the clocks of aggressive, genocidal — and unprovoked — invading armies.
In other words, these hate-befuddled refugees of decades of Arab-on-Israel aggression, have made it their lives’ mission to make Israel pay for the effrontery of declining a second holocaust — through any cowardly, dirty, underhanded, weaselly method possible: like stabbing sleeping mothers and slitting the throats of tiny infants.
But no worries, no doubt the Human Rights Council will have the matter well in hand — by condemning any defensive or retaliatory response by Israel.
