7/10 – Pure Antisemitism

Black, Dark Times, Hate, Antisemitism

The death toll of the 7/10 terrorist attack by Hamas terrorists on Israel is still counting, thousands are dead, more are wounded and hundreds are now held hostage in the Gaza Strip. The dead, wounded and kidnapped include, from young to mature: Fetuses [!], babies, toddlers, young children, adolescents, adults and the elderly. Even an 85-year old woman – Yaffa Adar – was taken hostage. Some were shot dead by Hamas terrorists, some were beheaded by Hamas terrorists, some were mutilated by Hamas terrorists. Women and men were sexually assaulted and raped by Hamas terrorists, regardless of their age. Young girls and boys, women and men are being tortured and raped as these lines are being written, perceived inferior and as slaves by the Palestinian Hamas terrorists and the Palestinian mob in Gaza. This attack took place on the morning of October 7, 2023 in the Gaza Strip which was a Shabbat and the Simchat Torah celebration.

The abovementioned description might remind some of the distant times we have all thought were left in the past – but no, these lines do not describe antisemitic attacks and murders during the Holocaust, nor do these lines describe the “Sufot BaNegev” [סופות בנגב] pogroms in tzarist Russian in 1881-1882 – the lines describe our times.

The “Sufot BaNegev” pogroms were described:

As Whirlwinds

Sweeping over the Negev,

Come from a desert, from a land of horror

– a harsh vision has been shown me –

the plunderer plunders

the destroyer destroys [Isaiah 21:2][1]

Now, let us attempt to rewrite the lines of Isaiah:

As Whirlwinds

Sweeping over the Land,

Come from Gaza, from a land of terror

– a harsh vision has been shown us

the terrorist rapes

the terrorist destroys

Why Did Palestinian Terrorists Attack Us?

Palestinian and Hamas terrorists attacked Israel due to pure antisemitism which, stupidly or knowingly, many people around the world refuse to see. Radical leftists claim the attack was done due to the Israeli “occupation” on the alleged Palestinian lands, which is like the arguments of rapists that they had raped a woman because she wore exposing clothes, not because there are rapists. For instance, the former British Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has said: “Ending the occupation is the only means of achieving a just and lasting peace.” This is like arguing that if women would not wear short clothes, sick rapist men would stop raping them. Radical Right wingers like white supremacists and neo-Nazis claim that the Jews deserved it since they are evil and inferior.

The attack was a surprise, but the intent was not kept secret. As written in the Hamas Covenant of August 1988:

“… Our struggle against the Jews is very great and very serious. It needs all sincere efforts. It is a step that inevitably should be followed by other steps. The Movement is but one squadron that should be supported by more and more squadrons from this vast Arab and Islamic world, until the enemy is vanquished and Allah’s victory is realised.” [sic]

“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Moslems fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Moslems, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him. Only the Gharkad tree, (evidently a certain kind of tree) would not do that because it is one of the trees of the Jews.” [sic]

Palestinian terrorists, followers of extreme Islamism, endorsers of ISIS and Al-Qaeda, Hezbollah and Iran, have committed an antisemitic attack on 7/10, some of them were linked to the Hamas terrorist organization. This needs to be written and understood clearly[!]. Years ago, it was the PLO (Palestine Liberation Organization), who kidnapped airplanes, bombed public buses, committed suicide attacks, later on, it was the Palestinian mob supported by the Palestinian National Authority, now, it is the Hamas terrorist organization. Extremist Palestinians have chanted for years, in Gaza, in the Judea and Samaria area, in free speech rallies on American streets and American Ivy League universities, on the streets of London, Paris and Berlin, and elsewhere, that Jews are to be disposed from the land of Israel. “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” they have shouted and still shouting. “Fuck their mothers, rape their daughters” those Palestinians and their sympathizers have shouted.

How would the terrorists and their sympathizers would free “Palestine” when it is, in fact, the land and the state of Israel? Where would all the Jews go? Were the terrorists and their sympathizers serious when they drove through London, shouting that Jewish women should be raped? The 7/10 attack by Palestinian and Hamas terrorists made it clear that they want to murder us, get rid of us Jews, take our grandmothers, mothers and daughters as sex slaves. They claim it is all done in the name of Allah, but they have no God and no prophet. They are the seed of the devil, nurtured for decades by Soviet antisemitic and anti-Western propaganda, now Iranian and Russian propaganda, influence and aid. Nurtured by authoritarian states and inspired by ISIS, they now share the pictures and videos of horror and terror on their WhatsApp groups and their Telegram channels. For the brave, that might be forever mentally traumatized, as most of Israelis are, such Telegram channels include: حركة حماس [Hamas]; الحركة الإسلامية – الضفة المحتلة [Hamas – West Bank]; Gaza Now; GAZA NOW IN ENGLISH; Global Resistance News; Resistance News Network; Free Palestine 48; عالم فلسطين [Palestine Here]. These channels include horrible graphic content and viewer discretion is advised. Palestinian and Hamas terrorists are proud of their horrors and they share it for all to see. They want Jews to be afraid, extermists to be inspired, just like ISIS had done.

Palestinian and Hamas terrorists attacked Israel and mainly its Jewish population due to pure hate, pure antisemitism. They and their sympathizers in London, Paris, Berlin, Stockholm, Brussels, New York, Chicago, California, in many Middle Eastern countries and elsewhere perceive Jews as religiously, biologically and culturally inferior. They perceive us as those who should be killed and enslaved.
