THE CALL OF THE ISRAELI APACHE:
Similar scenes across the Arab and Islamic world were seen after September 11th. The joy of unbridled "Blood Lust" let out onto an unsuspecting world. You know what I'm talking about! We all know now!
"Terrorists and those who support them..." as President Bush said. Need I say more? Did the United States do survey research to check if every Taliban soldier in Afghan- istan supported al-Qa'ida's attacks in New York and Washington? Could there have been innocent Muslim fundamentalists killed in the U.S. air raids? Are there innocent participants at these funerals of suicide bombers and terrorist masterminds? If you're not sure of the answer, you've already lost the war!
When thousands gather to bury a dead "Hero," praise his life's work--killing innocent Israelis--and vow further blood shed, decent people have to say, ENOUGH! And sover- eign states, whether it's India fighting Kashmiri terror, Russia fighting the Chechens, the Philippines fighting Abu Sayyaf (Bearer of the Sword) in Mindanao, or Israel on the front lines of the war, have the responsibility to PUT DOWN this behavior. It should be done by legitimate judicial means whenever possible. Terrorists should be treated as common criminals, as the serial murderers that they are, captured and prosecuted. But when this is not possible, they should be pursued by all means.
The Rabbis of the Talmud taught over 1,600 years ago, "Those who are merciful to the cruel, will end up being cruel to the kind." The world desperately needs to learn this most practical of moral lessons. Turning the other cheek wouldn't have helped stop Hitler, and it won't work this time either, this time against Islamic Fascism. Mercy and forgiveness--ethics on the personal level between individuals--works up to a point, but not against organized hordes with murderous intent, fed by an ideology of death, their own and others. Between groups in conflict, SAFETY and JUSTICE become the opera- tive values. It's the responsibility of us all--to ourselves and to society at large--to un- derstand this, and demand that our governments pursue policies to attain SAFETY and JUSTICE!
"Terrorists and those who support them..." That's why I'm advocating a policy of ZERO TOLERANCE, zero tolerance for terrorists, zero tolerance for those who support them, zero tolerance for public acts of support, zero tolerance for calls of revenge and more terror by these Muslim fanatics and their fellow travelers.
The Israeli government should call on Yasser Arafat, Ahmed Qurela, and the Palestinian Authority to immediately implement already signed agreements, agreements outlawing violence against Israelis and prohibiting calls for that violence. After a given period--say, a week or two--if the Palestinian Authority hasn't yet banned "political" funerals, hasn't stopped public expressions of support for suicide bombings, machinegun attacks and the like, Israel will begin the "self-enforcement" concept implicit in any international treaty or other agreement among nations.
Imagine for a moment, thousands chanting "Death to the Jews," many shooting ma- chineguns (unregistered and illegal?), in the air--dozens of Palestinians have been killed or injured this way, I might add--listening to speeches calling for revenge, murder, and more atrocities.
The members of the crowd, not just the leaders, are guilty. "Terrorists and those who support them..."
As the frenzy of human sacrifice and blood lust reaches a peak, Israeli helicopter gun- ships swoop down from the skies. The call of the Israeli Apache has begun!
When a crowd of several thousand people "celebrates" the death of a "Hero," whose life has been dedicated to murder and mayhem, there are no innocents. They are giving support to the next suicide bomber. Israeli Apaches strafe the crowd with machinegun fire, and shoot several rockets into the center of the crowd. The stated goal is to dis- burse the crowd. The intension is to put real fear into terrorists and their supporters. Now, rather than turning every funeral into a political rally and support for more blood- shed, funerals will be what they're meant to be, SAD OCCASIONS!
The purpose of this Israeli policy is to self-enforce already signed agreements--agree- ments concluded between the State of Israel and the Palestinian Authority, agreements to stop terrorism and ban political activity in support of it. The goal is to drive the Islamic Fascists underground. The objective is to return funerals to their original purpose, bury- ing the dead, and no more. With consistent enforcement of this new policy by Israel--Is- raeli strafing and bombing political rally-funerals staged by terrorist groups--the result will be secret, hidden, quiet, late night or early morning funerals for the family and friends alone, far from the eyes of the public and media. No more celebrations in broad daylight of suicide, murder, and, other barbarities that boggle the civilized mind. No more public displays of blood lust. No more public support for terrorists and terrorism!
Either the Palestinian Authority does the job or Israel does it. Let THE CALL OF THE ISRAELI APACHE begin!
