The wages of 'humanitarianism'

Israel is constantly being urged to allow the 'Palestinians' to enter Israel or to cross Israel to go from Gaza to Judea and Samaria for 'humanitarian' reasons. These may include university students (article may also be found here), 'family reunification' and medical reasons. Israel often accedes to these requests, putting its own citizenry in peril. For example, on 21 June 2005 a 21-year old Palestinian woman from Gaza attempted a suicide bomb attack on Israel’s Soroka hospital, where she was a patient being treated for burns suffered in a cooking accident.

Today, we have something new:
It has been cleared for publication that the Shin Bet and the IDF arrested Gaza City resident Jabar Derabiya, 43, at Erez Crossing two months ago for being suspected of planning to carry out terror attacks against Israeli targets.

Derabiya, active in the Popular Resistance Committees, received an entry permit into Israel in order to get treatment for a medical condition of his, and allegedly planned to exploit the entry permit in order to establish terror cells in the West Bank. He was arrested on September 28 while trying to enter Israel.

During his investigation, Derabiya admitted being recruited to the mission by then commander of the Popular Resistance Committees Jamal Abu Samhadana earlier in the year. Abu Samhadana wanted to exploit of Derabiya's condition that required medical attention in Israel in order to bring him into the West Bank.
We're not told what Derabiya's medical condition is, but you can guess that the treatment is likely something along the order of chemotherapy or dialysis, treatments that Israeli hospitals often perform for 'Palestinians' free of charge (the 'Palestinians' don't consider these kind of treatments worth spending money to finance in their own hospitals). Yet he was going to take advantage of that condition - and risk forfeiting his right to treatment - to assist in carrying out a terror attack in Israel. Another thing that is frightening about this incident is that Derabiya is 43-years old, which is well beyond the age that fits a terrorist's profile.

But the world and our own loony left expect Israel to go on treating these people like human beings and trusting them not to abuse our kindness in allowing them to obtain free medical treatment in Israel.

The Talmud says that those who are kind to the cruel end up being cruel to the kind. It's time to stop being kind to the cruel Palestinian terrorists. Enough is enough.

I think the only logic to the whole disengagement fiasco, and one of only two reasons I can think of to justify it, was just that: "it's time to stop being kind to the cruel Palestinian terrorists."

Which is to say, of course, that Israel, once out of Gaza, should never, under any circumstances, have reopened any of the border crossings there. It's time to let the palys stew in their own juices, and live with the mess they've made of their own homes.
