'Official' 'Palestinian' newspapers eulogize suicide terrorists

Israel Radio has just reported that the two 'official' 'Palestinian' newspapers, al-Hayat al-Jadida and al-Ayam, have published obituaries for the two 'Palestinian' terrorists who committed the suicide bombing in Dimona on Monday, on their front pages. The obituaries were actually advertisements published by the families, but their placement on the newspapers' front pages is turning heads here in Israel. The 'official' 'Palestinian' newspapers - as the name implies - are published by the 'moderate' Fatah movement - the 'good' terrorists led by 'moderate' 'Palestinian' President Mahmoud Abbas Abu Mazen.

In the meantime, Hamas has taken credit for the suicide bombing itself, and has identified the bombers who came from Hebron:
In an internet announcement, the the Al-Qassam Brigades also said that the two attackers came from the West Bank city of Hebron, not from Gaza as had been widely reported.

The group identified the two alleged bombers as Mohammad El-Harbawi and Shadi Mohammad Fathi Az-Zghaiar, both from Hebron.

"Our declaration of full responsibility for the operation came a little late for security reasons and to confuse the Israeli occupation in their attempt to find out facts about the two martyrs" Abu Ubeidah, a spokesperson for the Al-Qassam Brigades, told Ma'an.

The military wings of Fatah, Islamic Jihad, and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) had earlier claimed responsibility for the attack.

" The occupation knows well that reaching Dimona through the Sinai desert is almost impossible and their announcement in this regard came for political reasons." Abu Obeidah added.

"The objective of the operation was to send a message that the resistance is continuing and that Al-Qassam is able to fulfill its promises to the occupation and its ability to execute martyrdom operations," the Brigades declared.

Occupying Israeli forces raided both men's houses on Monday night, witnesses told Ma'an's reporter in Hebron. The Israeli soldiers seized some of their family members without stating the reasons for their arrest.

Twenty-year-old Shadi Shadi Az-Zghaiar was an employee at a plastic factory in Hebron and that he had asked for two days vacation. El-Harbawi, also 20, worked in a paper factory in the city and, according to his mother, he left in the morning hours and never came back. She attempted to reach him on his cellular phone, but to no avail.
May they rot in hell. I wonder why the IDF didn't destroy the families' homes. That's what they used to do back in the days when we had a real government.

The symptoms are indicative of a real disease eating away at the Israeli body politic. The terrorists murder Jews and can fire rockets at Ashkelon without drawing a real response from the government. Of course in the old days, the government would never allow an American veto to effect Israel's right of self-defense.

Proof that's nothing changed since Winograd can be seen in Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni's backing for more Egyptian troops on Israel's border and an international force in Gaza similar to UNIFIL in southern Lebanon. One gets the impression Israel's government, instead of eliminating the threats facing Israel, would just like to conceal their existence from the Israeli public.

What a way to run a country!

It's not that they want to conceal the threats. As I argued on Friday, it's more that they're looking for someone else to fight our battles.

Carl - it goes back all the way to Ehud Olmert's speech in 2005 where he described an Israel that was tired of fighting, of being courageous and of winning. I observed in response to you then that no country can outsource its defense to others. Israel's leadership may be exhausted and exhibit a defeatist spirit to the extent it tries to run from reality.

The average Israeli knows that is nonsense. If Israel lays down her arms and surrenders, the enemy won't do the same. The enemy will wage war upon Israel til the country is destroyed. Average Israelis still have a resolve to fight for the country because the alternative is literally to see themselves and their families die. Being face to face with reality reminds them their own lives can't be outsourced to foreign nations and Israel has to rely on itself to stay secure and independent.

Israel's government will sooner than later face the reality its citizens encounter every day and be forced to defend the country because the outcome of losing quite simply will result in a Second Holocaust for the Jewish people.
