I want revenge. Not forgiveness, healing, reconciliation or bridge-building, but revenge, harsh, powerful, uncompromising. One Jew has been savagely murdered and two shot, for the simple crime that they were Jewish, by members of the "moderate" Fatah terrorist organization. For this terrible attack, there must be no tolerance, no turning the other cheek and no mercy, but rather revenge, terrible and sweet.
O earth, do not conceal their blood! How long with this continue, Israel's corrupt judenrat giving up Jewish land to appease the murderers, with the only result being death and destruction? How can any Jew hear of this and his blood not boil? The blood of this holy martyr, HaShem yinkom damo, is on the head of Ehud Olmert and his entire cabinet, along with the blood of those who have been killed in various attacks and rockets on Sderot. After the Holocaust, when Europe became one giant Jewish graveyard, we pledged 'Never Again'. Never again to Jewish weakness. Never again to going silently like sheep to the slaughter. And yet Ehud Olmert continues to call Abbas, the head of the murderous organization dedicated to the Final Solution to the Zionist Problem, a moderate! A man of peace who is prepared to end the violence against Israel in return for an Arab state. Nothing could be further from the truth.
Since 2005, Gaza has been judenrein, free from any alleged occupation or Israeli intereference. In the subsequent two and a half years, the Arabs of Gaza have not proven themselves ready for self-government but plunged themselves into a bloody civil war, with Hamas finally winning. When Israel disengaged Gaza, throwing out 10 000 Jewish settlers in the process, it left behind farm equipment and greenhouses. Showing the world yet again how the Arab never miss and opportunity to miss and opportunity, the vile savages desecrated the synagogues of the former settlement and burnt the greenhouses, destroying a chance to start a self-suficient economy. Now, the streets of Gaza are overflowing with sewage because the pipes have been used as rockets to launch at Sderot and gangs of Islamofascist thugs terrorize the population. Thriving Jewish communities were razed to appease these animals and in gratitude, the Arab murderers killed every Jew that they could get their hands on. Even as Israel released hundreds of Arab terrorists, kidnapped Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit, remains in the hands of Hamas. The weapons that Israel gave to the Arabs as a sign of goodwill have found their way into the hands of Jew-murdering pigs; Fatah policemen were guilty in the death of two Jewish hikers in Judea and Samaria.
The time for talk is over. It is now time for revenge. Israel says that it has disengaged from Gaza so let it make good on its claim. Let Israel completely disconnect from Gaza, and seal tightly all the gates. Any transer of electricity, medical aid and information as well as any contact by Israeli officials must be banned. Any village which is used as a base for staging assaults on Jewish targets will be razed, after its population is expelled. No Hamas or Fatah official should be safe and bombardment of Gaza will not stop until the Arabs declare complete and unconditional surrender.
Liberals, in their perverted notions of righteousness, claim that this is immoral. Nonsense! Morality comes directly from HaShem and is derived from the Torah. The highest moral law is that of self-preservation and to that end, Israel must hesitate one iota. Let everyone take to heart the teaching of our Sages contained in Midrash Tanchuma: Just as they show you no mercy, so you should not show them mercy. There have been enough dead Jews, enough bereaved mothers and enough orphaned children in the misguided quest to make "peace" with the Arabs and to relinquish Jewish land. The Arabs have had ample time to show their unwillingness to stop murdering and have killed, looted, bombed and attacked every chance they have got.
By failing to take revenge and to stand up for ourselves, we are guilty of the worst sort of chillul HaShem. "And I scattered them among the nations and they were dispersed through the countries; according to their way and according to their doings I judged them. And when they came into the nations whither they came, they profaned My Holy Name when they [the nations] said concerning them: These are the people of the Lord and are gone forth from His land! And I had pity for My Holy Name which the House of Israel had profaned among the nations into which they came. Therefore say unto the House of Israel: Thus said the Lord, G-d. I do not do this for your sake, O House Of Israel, but for My Holy Name's sake which you have profaned among the nations into which you came. And I will sanctify My Great Name, which was profaned among the nations, which you profaned among them, and the nations shall know that I Am The Lord, said the Lord G-d, when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes. For I will take you from among the nations and gather you out of all the countries and bring you into your own land." (Ezekiel 36) Whenever a Jew is degraded or attacked by a non-Jew, this is a chillul HaShem. Whenever a Jewish settlement is bombarded or a Jew walking on the streets of Jerusalem is shot, this is a chillul HaShem. "And when they came into the nations whither they came, they profaned My Holy Name." Our defenselessness, weakness, our reliance on the wobbly reed of flesh and blood and our refusal to claim what is rightfully ours, is the essense of desecrating G-d's Name. "Israel's lowliness is a Chillul Hashem in that the nations say of them, "These are the Lord's people [and they are gone forth out of His Land] yet He is unable to save them." (Rashi on Ezekiel 39:7).
Eventually, we will wake up to the necessity of Jewish self-defense and assertion; the only question is how long and at what cost in Jewish blood? Jews, do not allow the death of our brothers to go unavenged! We have learnt from the Holocaust and from the thousands of years of exile that preceded it that if we do not stand up for ourselves, no one will.
"Sing aloud, O ye nations, of His people; for He doth avenge the blood of His servants, and doth render vengeance to His adversaries, and doth make expiation for the land of His people." (Deut. 32:43)
