...The Israeli government must make courageous decisions in order to end the campaign of murder undertaken by the haters of Israel. We came back to the land of Israel so that Jewish blood would never again be forfeit. This is the leadership's duty toward the citizens of the country, toward the victims of terror and the thousands of years of Jewish history.
01 July '14..
All of Israel was overcome by grief and pain after receiving the news that the bodies of Eyal Yifrach, Gil-ad Shaer and Naftali Frenkel had been found. An entire people, normally divided, identified with the cries of the mothers, and with their dignity and courage in hope and prayer. These have been rare days of unity, which rose from the ancient spring of mutual assurance. Who can know the pain in a mother's heart after losing a child, and who can understand the soul of a father weeping for his son, taken as a sacrifice on the altar of Israel's resurrection in its land.
The War of Independence is still not over; we must still pay the price of freedom. These pure and innocent boys join the multitude of Jews who gave their lives for our right to live as free people in our land.
After 2,000 years, we returned from an extended and terribly costly exile. We believed the return to Zion would put an end to the bloodshed that had become our lot on foreign soil. We hope that our matriarch Rachel would finally be able to stop crying for her lost sons. Yet we are still unable to rest in tranquility. For many years we have had to fight in the city, the village, at home and on the front lines against enemies and evil-wishers that have risen against us.
The people of Israel must contend with people who lack humanity. The difference between them and predatory animals is miniscule at best, because animals usually avoid killing their own species; but our enemies are willing to slaughter anything in their path for the sake of glorifying the sword and their brutal religion. Throughout the Middle East, the sword of God spills blood without pause.
The terrorists who murdered the boys did not operate in a vacuum; they are the loyal emissaries of a twisted ideology that has many supporters in Gaza and in Judea and Samaria. They represent the violent arm of their leadership, the inciters and the Palestinian Authority. I do not believe the PA spokesmen who try convincing us that the military and political wings act independently of one another. These are intertwined apparatuses whose entire goal is to eradicate the Zionist entity in the land of Israel. Murderers and their supporters are not to be negotiated with over peace -- they are to be spoken to in the only language they understand -- the language of force.
The Israeli government must make courageous decisions in order to end the campaign of murder undertaken by the haters of Israel. We came back to the land of Israel so that Jewish blood would never again be forfeit. This is the leadership's duty toward the citizens of the country, toward the victims of terror and the thousands of years of Jewish history.
The message needs to be clear and convincing. No one will dare raise a hand against a Jew and any hand that is raised -- will be severed swiftly and decisively.
