Widow of Rabbi Raziel Shevach: Our Consolation Is not Revenge, but Building The Land of Israel

Terrorist Who Murdered Rabbi Raziel Shevach Killed in Firefight with IDF

Lieberman: Look into recognizing Havat Gilad as legal settlement
...Speaking at Shevach's funeral, the head of the Samaria Regional Council, Yossi Dagan, berated the government for failing to install security cameras in the area, despite repeated pleas by residents of the Yitzhar settlement for this to be done, and called on Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Liberman to immediately recognize the outpost as a legal settlement.
"At this moment, I must make a difficult statement, but it is my duty to say it. Raziel was murdered on a road on which, despite repeated promises [by the government], security cameras had not yet been installed. If they had been, these vile murderers would have been caught," he said.

Some mourners called for revenge at the funeral, which was attended by hundreds of people including ministers and chief rabbis.
....Bennett made political demands of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, calling on him to ensure that Palestinian Authority payments to terrorists cease, to recognize Havat Gilad as a legal settlement and to impose Israeli sovereignty over Judea and Samaria.
But as he was issuing his last demand, angry voices in the crowd of mourners began to shout "Vengeance," chanting the word rhythmically and drowning out Bennett's words.
The minister said in response that though he understood the pain of those chanting "Vengeance," the only answer to Shevach's murder could be through IDF actions and to build more settlements.

My comments: If government decisions and  IDF actions are inadequate  the necessary security steps have not been put in place  to stop the terror,  what does Bennett expect the Settlers to do to protect their lives?

Here is some facts of the ground leading up to this terror attack.... Can we honestly look ourselves in the mirror and not say ידינו לא שפכו את הדם הזה!


Video of IDF Soldiers slapped and kicked by Teenage Palestinian girls (Ahed Temimi and company)

Jewish Press January 19, 2018 page 27 The Right Angle by Sara Lehmann on Ahed Temimi provoking Israel soldiers...

...The humiliated soldiers in Nabi Salih had no wish to become  additional sacrificial video victims in cyberspace court.  Or worse, in the military court of the IDF.  Azaria's abandonment by his military superiors and by Israel's president was enough to cause any soldier to bear the slaps and kicks of a teenage girl rather than defend  himself and the honor of Israel.
    In what can be called the Azaria Effect, an IDF Behavioral Research unit last year found that only 41 percent of combat soldiers have confidence that their commanders would back them up after an error made during field operations. An excerpt from the study obtained by Haaretz read, "it can be assumed that these findings were influenced by the events with Elor Azaria."
    This lamentable but understandable reaction in the part of soldiers is an incredibly dangerous one.  Not only because it contributes to diminished protection of Israeli citizens but also because it contributes to the tarnishing  of Israel's image.  Negative media leads directly to negative consequences on the ground.

Israeli shoots dead Palestinian after group of children comes under attack
IDF says settler shot a Palestinian in the chest after large crowd of locals from Qusra near Nablus began throwing rocks at a group of Israeli children visiting the area; Samaria Regional Council describes attempted 'lynch against a group of tourists' while Yesh Din claims man was toiling the land before being shot.
Keren Perlman, the mother of one of the children, said her son told her the Palestinians "sprayed pepper spray into the cave" the children were hiding in. "They took their bags, equipment and candy," she added.
 
"He also told me many children made vows, about the feeling of imminent death, about (children) saying the 'Shema Yisrael' prayer, and about heart-rending crying," Perlman added.
 
She criticized the IDF for taking too long to arrive to the children's aid. "It took the army an hour and a half. An hour and a half in which the children hid in a crumbling cave with hundreds of Arabs above them. An hour and a half of the heroic parents standing at the entrance, enduring beatings and stones to protect the children, and the army just didn't bother showing up," she lamented.

The Defense Minister's Pen
By Shmuel Sackett -  24 Iyyar 5776 – June 1, 2016

How can Am Yisroel do Teshuva? Collectively let us  raise awareness that the hand of Tzahal in Judea and Samaria are often tied due to political considerations.  The lives of the residents of Judea and Samaria can not be hefker! 

Here are Facts on the Ground that will help the Security situation in Judea and Samaria to bring a long and lasting peace!

- Pessure the powers at large to Pardon Elor Azarya prosecuted by the IDF military court. 
- instruct IDF to confiscate cameras there to put our soldiers in a bad light
- instruct IDF to treat enemy children,  pregnant women, disabled etc with extreme caution as if they are ready to detonate in a suicide mission and not with restraint and compassion lest we fall into their trap.
- implement the Death sentence for terrorists who have Jewish blood on their hands
- Stop PA stipends to Terrorists and their families
- Mnitor and stop the hate education and brainwashing, incitement of  terror of Palestinian children in all schools including schools funded by USA like UNRWA
- Remove billboards etc that incite terror and if the IDF turns a blind eye,  don't be surprised or upset when Residents of Judea and Samaria take the matter into their own hands to bring down those billboards. 
- Make sure IDF comes quicky when children go on a Tiyul and are threatened, It should not take over an hour.
- Don't accuse the Settlers of taking their security into their own hands and force them to rely on the IDF whose hands have been tied to do the job effectively 
- Normalize Jewish Settlement in Judea and Samaria not only Havat Gilad!  Do not demolish the homes in Netiv HaAvot!!!!

Helen Freedman at Mothers March for Safety in Judea and Samaria in Arlozoroff Station TA January 17, 2018 with hundreds of women and children decrying terrorism on Roads of Judea and Samaria

Mothers March for Safety
Helen Freedman at the Kirya in Tel Aviv demanding controls be put in place to stop terrorism in Judea and Samaria
Hundreds of women and children show a strong presence at the demonstration
Helen was on the scene on Tuesday, January 17, 2018 at 3:30 pm at Arlozoroff Station in Tel Aviv, with hundreds of women and children gathered to organize a march to the KiryaWith the theme of "No More Widows and No More Orphans", the organizers had prepared red balloons with the slogan, "Children want to live", many posters decrying the terrorism on the roads of Judea and Samaria, and Israeli flags which flew proudly over the crowd. It was the brutal Arab terrorist murder of Rabbi Raziel Shevach of Havat Gilad that spurred the demonstration. The roads of Judea and Samaria are endangered by Arabs who come from neighboring villages to stone Israeli cars, shoot at them, and kill innocent Israelis. 

Helen was interviewed by I24 and was asked about how to control the terrorism. She suggested that the Arab villages that are near Havat Gilad, from which the terrorists probably came, and to which they probably returned, should be destroyed. The interviewer looked shocked, and will probably not air the interview. Helen believes that if harsh measures are taken against terrorists so that it no longer becomes a profitable business for them, it might end the daily violence against Jews.

Denying Israel's right to exist continues to be the fundamental component of Palestinian ideology and the fundamental cause of the conflict. It was expressed again by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas yesterday in his speech to the PLO leadership.


In his speech Abbas repeated the Palestinian revision of history that Israel's creation was not founded on Jewish history in the area, but was the European solution to its alleged problem with the Jews and its way to create a presence in the Middle East - a repeating PA libel documented by Palestinian Media Watch.


Mahmoud Abbas: "'The significance of Israel's functional character is that colonialism created it in order to fill a specific role; it is a colonialist project that is not connected to Judaism, but made use of the Jews so they would serve as pawns, and they were, under the motto 'the Promised Land' and 'the Beloved Land,' and they brought them here'... There is an important matter - how will the Jews immigrate [to Palestine]? The Jews do not want to immigrate because of killing and slaughter. Even during the Holocaust that took place they did not immigrate [to Palestine]."

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 15, 2018]

Many PA and Fatah leaders regularly rewrite history to deny the Jewish people's connection to the land. Earlier this month, describing Israel as a "cancerous entity" planted by colonialists, a host on official PA radio also repeated this claim:


Official PA radio host: "Those who established and support the Zionist movement created these religious illusions and lies in the holy city [of Jerusalem]... in order to plant the cancerous entity [of Israel] in the Arab region as part of a new colonial scheme to control it... Everyone knows that in the Jewish, Christian, and Muslim religions they [the Jews] have no right to this land, and these are firm facts."

[Official PA radio The Voice of Palestine, Sign of Hope, Jan. 1, 2018]

The PA radio host made this statement in response to US President Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital on Dec. 6, 2017. PMW has documented the Palestinian condemnations of the American decision as well as calls for violence.

Not only do the PA and Fatah not accept Jerusalem being recognized as the capital of Israel, they reject Israel's entire existence. A member of Fatah's Central Committee explained this recently:

Fatah Central Committee member Al-Haj Ismail Jaber: "All matters are on the [PLO] Central Council's agenda... Indeed, we in Fatah have not recognized Israel, never. This should be clear. We have never recognized [Israel]. The PLO recognized it. We are part of the PLO, true. And we, as Fatah, have not recognized Israel."

[Official PA TV, Topic of the Day, Jan. 1, 2018]


Denial of Israel's right to exist leads to ongoing calls for terror and violence by PA and Fatah leaders as PMW has exposed repeatedly.

One such call was made by the Head of the Communications Department of the Fatah Movement Mobilization and Organization Commission Munir Al-Jaghoub, who called for "escalating the intifada":


"Al-Jaghoub noted in a special statement to Donia Al-Watan that the [celebration of the] Launch [of Fatah] will be limited to lighting the torch of the Launch and escalating the intifada."

[Donia Al-Watan, independent Palestinian news agency, Dec. 25, 2017]

The photo above of a young Palestinian boy carrying a real M-16 semi-automatic assault rifle at a Fatah event celebrating the 53rd anniversary of the movement is illustrative of this message advocating violence coming from the PA and Fatah.

At the Fatah event, the District Governor of Qalqilya Rafe' Rawajbeh "emphasized that the popular uprising (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror) must be escalated, and that all of the Palestinians need to participate in it in order to collect the price of the occupation of our Palestinian land from the occupation, and to force it to leave [the land] by the force of the popular resistance and the support of the brothers and friends from all of the world's states." [Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 1, 2018]

The terms "peaceful uprising/resistance," and "popular uprising/resistance" are used by PA leaders at times to refer to peaceful protest and at times to refer to deadly terror attacks and terror waves. For example, Mahmoud Abbas defined as "peaceful popular" the murderous terror during the 2015-2016 terror wave ("The Knife Intifada"), in which 40 people were killed (36 Israelis, 1 Palestinian, 2 Americans and 1 Eritrean) and hundreds wounded by stabbings, shootings, and car ramming attacks: Abbas said: "we want peaceful popular uprising, and that's what this is."

Expressions of the Palestinian "peaceful resistance" was publicized in the official PA daily under the headline: "Trump's declaration will not pass." Similar photos from riots and rock throwing was published daily by the paper right after Trump's declaration.

The following are longer excerpts of the reports above:

Excerpt of a speech given by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to the PLO Central Council on Jan. 14, 2018


Headline: "The [PA] president: We are meeting here in order to defend Jerusalem"

"Egyptian intellectual Abd Al-Wahab Al-Masri, may his memory be a blessing, was one of the most important people that spoke about the Zionist and Jewish movement... He described this entity with these words: 'The significance of Israel's functional character is that colonialism created it in order to fill a specific role; it is a colonialist project that is not connected to Judaism, but made use of the Jews so they would serve as pawns, and they were, under the motto 'the Promised Land' and 'the Beloved Land,' and they brought them here'...

There is an important matter - how will the Jews immigrate [to Palestine]? The Jews do not want to immigrate because of killing and slaughter. Even during the Holocaust that took place they did not immigrate [to Palestine] (sic., there were many attempts to immigrate to the Land of Israel, many of which were blocked by the British). By the way, the number of Jews in Palestine in 1948 did not exceed 640,000 (sic., according to Israeli government statistics the Jewish population in 1948 was 660,920), and most of them came from Europe. [Theodor] Herzl [a founder of modern Zionism] used to say: 'Antisemitism is the engine of Zionism' - in other words, the more antisemitic a person is, the more beneficial he is to us [the Jews]. This is because he advances the Zionist goal - to expel the Jews from their countries to Palestine."

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 15, 2018]

The Balfour Declaration of Nov. 2, 1917 was a letter from British Foreign Secretary Arthur Balfour to Baron Rothschild stating that "His Majesty's government views with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people." In 1922, the League of Nations adopted this and made the British Mandate responsible for putting into effect the declaration," which led to the UN vote in 1947 and the establishment of the State of Israel.


"Thousands of Qalqilya district residents and members of the Fatah Movement participated in lighting the torch of the 53rd anniversary of the Launch (Intilaqa), under the slogan Continuing for Jerusalem and Independence.

The mass participation procession set out from the [PA] Ministry of Interior directorate building, with the participation of District Governor of Qalqilya Rafe' Rawajbeh...

The district governor emphasized that the popular uprising (i.e., term used by Palestinians, which also refers to the use of violence and terror) must be escalated, and that all of the Palestinians need to participate in it in order to collect the price of the occupation of our Palestinian land from the occupation, and to force it to leave [the land] by the force of the popular resistance and the support of the brothers and friends from all of the world's states."

[Official PA daily Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Jan. 1, 2018]

The boy in the photo above has the words "Jerusalem is ours" written on his forehead with face paint, and likewise has a Palestinian flag drawn on his right cheek and the number "53" on a yellow background on his left cheek referring to the 53rd anniversary of "the Launch" of Fatah. The boy and man are both wearing keffiyehs (Arab headdresses) around their necks. In the background yellow Fatah flags are waved by participants in the procession, and on the flags is the Fatah logo that includes a grenade, crossed rifles, and the PA map of "Palestine" that presents all of Israel as "Palestine" together with the PA areas.


Headline: "Al-Jaghoub: The Fatah rally will focus only on lighting the torch and escalating the intifada"

"Head of the Communications Department of the Fatah Movement Mobilization and Organization Commission Munir Al-Jaghoub denied that a central rally will take place for the 53rd anniversary of the Launch (Intilaqa) of the Fatah Movement.

Al-Jaghoub noted in a special statement to [the independent Palestinian news agency] Donia Al-Watan that the Launch will be limited to lighting the torch of the Launch and escalating the intifada."

[Donia Al-Watan, independent Palestinian news agency, Dec. 25, 2017]

Intilaqa - "the Launch" refers to the beginning of Fatah on Jan. 1, 1965, when it carried out its first terror attack against Israel, attempting to blow up Israel's National Water Carrier.
