New Obama Intifada Continues

On Wednesday, the new murderous Palestinian intifada that goes unchallenged by Barack Obama continued, as a teenaged Palestinian woman stabbed a 35-year-old Jew near Judaism’s holy Western Wall in in Jerusalem’s Old City. After he was knifed, the man took out his gun and shot the woman, wounding his assailant, according to Israeli police.

The attack occurred only hours after the Israeli government resumed allowing Palestinians to enter the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, which sits atop the Temple Mount, behind the Western Wall. The 18-year-old woman’s attack, launched at the Lion’s Gate in the Old City, on the eastern side of the Temple Mount, was the third knifing of Jews in Jerusalem in the past week. According to police, the woman sneaked up from behind the man and stabbed him near his neck.

As is typical of Israelis, unlike their murderous Palestinian counterparts, not only was the wounded man given medical treatment at the site by Magen David Adom (MDA) medical teams and United Hatzalah volunteers, the treatment was also extended to the murderous Palestinian woman. They were both evacuated to a hospital.

Palestinans, on the other hand, celebrate the murder of two Jews knifed to death and the the stabbing of a two-year-old child by Islamic Jihad terrorist Mohammed Shafik Halabi on Saturday night by naming babies after them and lauding them on social media.

Also on Wednesday, an Arab terrorist knifed a civilian outside Petah Tikvah’s central mall near Beilinson Hospital. Security guards then overpowered him, in the third stabbing attack in a single day Wednesday.

“You have to recognize that [the Palestinians] have legitimate claims, and this is their land and neighborhood as well.”

Barack Obama

On Saturday night, Fadi Aloun,19, stabbed 15-year-old Moshe Malka in East Jerusalem; he was shot and killed by police officers. Last Thursday, a young Jewish couple, Eitam and Naama Henkin, were shot in cold blood in front of their four youngest children, who ranged in age from 9-years-old to four months.

Obama has always resisted the idea of condemning Palestinians for their cold-blooded murders of Jews without trying to equate their behavior with Israel’s. in 2014, after the savage murders of Eyal Yifrach, Gilad Shaar, and Naftali Fraenkel, he pontificated, “From the outset, I have offered our full support to Israel and the Palestinian Authority to find the perpetrators of this crime and bring them to justice, and I encourage Israel and the Palestinian Authority to continue working together in that effort. I also urge all parties to refrain from steps that could further destabilize the situation.” There was no commentary on the savagery of the murders. After the Henkins were murdered in front of their children last week, Obama’s State Department stated, “We extend our condolences to the victims’ family. We urge all sides to maintain calm, avoid escalating tensions in the wake of this tragedy, and work together to bring the perpetrators to justice.” No condemnatipn, simply the reference to the cold-blooded murders as a “tragedy.”

Obama simply does not believe that the land of Israel was meant as Jewish homeland. As he said in 2014, “You have to recognize that [the Palestinians] have legitimate claims, and this is their land and neighborhood as well.”
