Arson Terrorists Hit Home in Duma

    Nadene Goldfoot                                                 
Duma is in Samaria (Israel) near Nablus (Shechem in the Bible) more than Judea.    Judea was created after King Solomon died from the southern half of Israel.  The red dot did not transfer to this picture.  
  
Evidently some Jewish extremists are breaking our own rules of  ethics  and have stepped over the line in their horrid arson attack today on a Palestinian family in Duma.  They will be caught. 

 "Abbas said he had ordered his foreign minister to file a complaint at the International Criminal Court in The Hague."

My thoughts on this are that there have been horrible things that have happened to Israelis living in Judea and Samaria, and now something has turned and it has happened to a Palestinian family. Too bad we didn't turn to the Hague immediately.   What was the reaction of everyone when a Jewish family was slaughtered in a very bloody attack  several years ago?  Remember that?

The Itamar attack, also called the Itamar massacre, was an attack on a Jewish family in the Israeli settlement of Itamar in the West Bank that took place on 11 March 2011, in which five members of the same family were murdered in their beds. The victims were the father Ehud (Udi) Fogel, the mother Ruth Fogel, and three of their six children—Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and Hadas, the youngest, a three-month-old infant. According to David Ha'ivri, and as reported by multiple sources the infant was decapitated  The settlement of Itamar had been the target of several murderous attacks before these killings . 

Well, 2 wrongs don't make a right;  ever. However, this is how we learn.  If the Jewish family's death wasn't dealt with by the Palestinians  in the manner in which Israel is now handling this case, it remained a festering sore in some Jewish teens' minds.  It was also a time for a good sermon on why we can't turn around and do the same thing to Palestinians and why we're not like that.  The arsonists didn't learn a thing except to copy their enemy.  Isn't that what Golda Meier said that she hated?   

Golda Meir

“We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children. We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”  She said that never dreaming that we would have a couple of Jewish copycats do a similar horrid  deed.
