This past week IDF soldiers from the Etzion Brigade carried out a special operation in El Arub just south of the Gush Etzion junction in order to arrest terrorists who have been hurling rocks and firebombs at Jewish motorists on the road between Gush Etzion and Hebron.
The IDF soldiers are on duty 24/7 keeping us as safe as possible.
Firebombing Israeli Cars
Just a few days ago an Israeli driver was targeted in an Arab firebombing attack near the IDF guard post outside the northern entrance to the Gush Etzion city of Efrat.
The attackers threw flaming Molotov cocktails as an Israeli vehicle traveled past the spot where two IDF soldiers stood guard at the entrance to the community, located about 10 minutes south of Jerusalem.
Thankfully nobody was injured. However, sometimes people are injured, and even killed, by these firebombs and rocks.
I addition to regular violent terrorism, the Arab Muslims also engage in eco-terrorism. Just this weekend, Arab Muslims uprooted a new forest planted in memory of Ori Ansbacher, the 19-year-old girl from Tekoa who was brutally raped and murdered. They came on Shabbat, when the Jews are in Synagogue or in their homes, uprooted the trees and stole them in the middle of the day!
Arab Muslim Terror MUST BE STOPPED
This Arab Muslim terror must be stopped. It didn’t start yesterday and it didn’t start 100 years ago. Arab Muslims have been using terror against Jews for many years.
We are thankful for the work of the IDF, but the Israeli government has to decide to put a stop to this terror once and for all. Bandaid operations are not enough. Putting terrorists in jail to then earn Bachelor or Master degrees, and then be freed in prisoner exchanges, is not enough. The goal of the Arab Muslims is to destroy Israel and kill Jews. Israel must do everything in its power to ensure that our Arab Muslim neighbors understand that they will never succeed so that they stop. Israel must take the hope away that they will succeed in destroying us. The irony is that their lives under Israel are better off than under their own Arab Muslim regimes, yet they continue to try to kill Jews and destroy Israel. The Western world deceives itself into thinking that the conflict is about land and quality of life, but it’s not. It’s a religious conflict where the Arab Muslim world can not, and never will, accept the existence of the Jewish State of Israel, no matter how great their quality of life is living under Israeli control.
