In the midst of the slaughter of Israelis being perpetrated by Arabs as young as sixteen years of age, it is impossible to sleep. The brain is trying to understand what is happening throughout Israel as Arab young people, both male and female are buying knives and wantonly selecting an innocent Jew to stab in the neck…their newfound goal in life;  Murder a Jew.

Everyone is frustrated. How scared one is depends on one’s perspective, age and experience.  Irrational behavior is frightening. Terror is fomented by those who want to delegitimize Israel in alarming new ways.

Yesterday I sat in a taxi while the driver received three phone calls from his different children reporting new stabbings in different parts of Israel. They were terrorized.  While the father had seen many wars Intifadas, cafes and busses blown up .  He has been here before. His children are facing this hatred for the first time.

While all of this is happening…almost hourly… what do we see on television?  The members of the Knesset, blaming  our own Prime Minister instead of the puppeteers who have manipulated the Arab young minds into this malevolent condition.  How brilliant are those who sit over coffee and decide how to take innocent sixteen year olds and mold them into murderers!  How sick…how twisted… and because some Knesset members cannot believe such evil exists…they blame Bibi. Where is the blame for the Arab Knesset members who encourage hatred and dissent rather than communication and compromise?

Such evil does exist… we are watching it on our cellphones all day long.

The Arab youth are looking at their cellphones too; For instructions on who to select, where to go, and what to do to attain the glory which awaits.

Do you remember being a teenager and feeling without purpose?  I do.   It is that critical time when human beings decide who and what they will be for the rest of their lives.  When Arab youths have been abandoned , not by Israel…but by their fellow Arab nations and their own leaders, they are ripe for the plucking. The Arab  world is consistent. They abandon their own. They are selfish in the extreme. They do not open their doors to the Syrian refugees who are flooding Europe.  People are pawns in their game. There is no humanity in their leadership.

When the Oslo accords were signed, Mr. Arafat and his cohorts smiled for the cameras and laughed all the way to their Swiss Banks as they took the millions…perhaps billions….of dollars provided by the E.U. and other well-meaning groups who wanted to help the poor Palestinians improve their lot.  But their leaders knew the truth: Keep your people impoverished and wthout hope, and one day they will do your bidding. They were the ultimate puppeteers.  Their mantle has been handed on… to the clever hatred filled leaders of Isis, Hamas. and Hezbollah,  all the whilst being funded by Iran, now rich with wealth beyond imagination thanks to America’s great leader. The tentacles reach far.

When you were sixteen years old…and searching for a “raison d’etre”… becoming a murderer was never on the list of your dream options.  The warping of young minds is an art… Hitlerian in scope… evil finds new ways to perpetrate itself.

The blaming of Bibi for what is happening all around us, is a result of misplaced frustration.  “If only Israel had given the Palestinians more land…  more opportunities…more ….more…more…” then they would love us?  They cannot love us because they have been taught to hate us. The song from the musical “South Pacific” keeps coming to mind; “You Have To Be Carefully Taught.”  Children have to be taught to hate.

On a larger scale; the Palestinians have been taught that they do not have to negotiate, because if you wait long enough and blame “the other” long enough, your flag will fly above the United Nations.  The frustrations of those in the Knesset is evident. The need to blame is human.  No generous offer from Israel would have sufficed.  It will never be enough.  It is time for Israeli Knesset members to see the reality in which we live. Blame the puppeteers who pull the strings which result in the murders of Israel innocents. They ultimate deaths  of those who are the Arab teenage perpetrators  are the fuel for the fire . Funerals of Arab teenagers whose only sin was that they wanted to kill a Jew…  serves the cause.

The puppeteers are smiling.
