That was one of yesterday’s headlines in The Jerusalem Post. But let’s examine some facts.
Today is the final day of Ramadan, a month in which Muslims pray and fast in commemoration of the revelation of the Qur’an. Some insist that Islam is a religion of peace, that Muhammad was a leader of peace and that Ramadan is a peaceful commemoration.
Instead, what we see is this:
- A “peaceful” border protest (complete with rockets, attempts to tear down parts of the border fence, plans to attack Israeli cities and towns near the Gaza Strip, and the discovery of more terror tunnels) that is now well into its third month.
- The “peaceful” month of Ramadan, marked by a new-found means of attack: fire kites.
- “Peaceful” payment to terrorists and their families who kidnap or murder Jews.
- “Peaceful” speeches by Hamas leaders vowing to rip the hearts out of Israelis.
Now, the Palestinians will “celebrate” the last day of this peaceful month of Ramadan by sending 5,000 fire kites into Israel today!
What’s wrong with that picture?
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil;
Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Meanwhile, in the UN, another resolution was levied against Israel for using excessive force in their ongoing efforts to contain the barrage of “peaceful” terrorist activities on the Gaza border. Furthermore, when US Ambassador Nikki Haley proposed a resolution condemning Hamas for their incitement and backing of Palestinian violence toward Israel, it was voted down. Absolutely ludicrous!
