Jewish lives do not count

A year ago this coming week, Udi, Ruti, Yoav, Elad and Hadas Fogel HY"D (May God Avenge their blood) were murdered in cold blood in their own home.

For the most part, the West has ignored the Fogel murders. The 'human rights' groups have ignored the murders entirely. Jewish lives don't count. Giulio Meotti explains.
Yet there is something even more horrible than Awad’s sadistic hatred: Western’s complacency. In recent years we have seen plenty of saccharine movies about Jewish children killed in the death camps in their pajamas, but the same public opinion reacted with indifference to the images of the Fogel babies dismembered by terrorists.


The Fogels, right down to the decapitated baby, were less human than the Arab victims and therefore less deserving of Western outrage on their behalf. The “settler kids” are invisible, as the northern Israel towns were during the 1970s, when Yasser Arafat’s terrorists murdered Israeli babies in Ma’alot, Kiryat Shmona, Misgav Am and Avivim.


Itamar’s massacre has been excused, as the “anger” of the perpetrators is fully justified in international eyes. PA President Mahmoud Abbas said many times that “I will never allow a single Israeli to live among us on Palestinian land.” Such state would be the first to officially prohibit Jews or any other faith since Nazi Germany, which sought a Jew-free country.

That an Arab movement should call the presence of Jews an obstacle to peace is one thing. It is quite another for an enlightened and so-called liberal world to do so. But this is the precise reason why Itamar didn’t cause any global scandal. Because in a world less surreal than the one we live in, the act of bursting into a Jewish home and slitting the throats of babies would be the cause of moral and religious outrage.

Multiply this act by thousands and one might think it would prompt an international uproar. Yet in the world we live in, Itamar was just a footnote. The Vatican made no reference to the Itamar massacre; nor did UNICEF raise its voice against the slaughter of innocent Jewish children.

The media then fabricated the justification: Because Itamar’s babies were “settlers,” they brought the crime upon themselves. Indeed, after any killing spree of “settlers,” we all read the same comment in the mainstream media: If the Jews hadn’t been there, they wouldn’t have been killed. If Israel took this approach seriously, it would dismantle the entire Israeli state.
Read the whole thing.

It makes me sad to read about events like this and how they are minimized by our Western media and their political agenda. Some of us don't agree with this and don't blindly hear what the media tries to spoon feed us as the world turns it's back on the Jewish state - the land that was promised to Abraham.

This disgusting Jew hater from Sweden was allowed to post a clearly divisive,hateful message, in which he,or she blamed the Fogels for their own murder,and said they got what was coming to them.

It's sad,but it seems to me history is repeating itself in so many ways.

I tried to respond to the Jew hater,but ynet wouldn't publish my post.

The level of hatred against Jews is now almost the same as it was right before the Second World War in Europe,unbelievably though,some in fact,many Jews refuse to see the truth staring them right in the face.

Either because it is just too painful,or because they don't know,or worst of all don't care as long as it doesn't effect them personally.
