More proof that muslims believe in nothing that is moral. If they did, they would be Jewish or Christian. Via JPost:
Erica Marom, of Tekoa, feels lucky to be alive after she and her family came under a barrage of rocks and cement blocks thrown by a group of Palestinian school kids on Thursday that left her and her six-month-old infant lightly hurt. “It was very, very scary and it’s a miracle we survived this attack. They were trying to kill us,” said Marom.
Marom was in the passenger seat and her husband, Moshe, was driving with their three children in the back seat when she told Moshe to slow down because there were school children in uniforms walking on the side of the road. All of a sudden, she heard a series of loud booms “and they were smashing our car with cement blocks.” The car sped away with its back windshield shattered. Six-month-old Adir, who was in a rear-facing child seat, had glass all over him.

The U.S. was told by the French intelligence agency that Said Kouachi, one of the Paris terrorists, traveled to Yemen in 2011 and received a variety of weapons training from Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). In addition, a French source said one of the brothers traveled to Syria during the past year. Also, Cherif Kouachi attempted at one point to join jihadists waging war in Iraq against the U.S. and the coalition.
Because they are compelled to do so in their book. In fact, there are 75 teachings of beheading in the Koran.
You can see so for yourself. Research the following: Koran 8:12.
Koran 8.12: “Remember thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): “I am with you: give firmness to the Believers: I will instill terror into the hearts of the Unbelievers: smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger-tips off them.”
Lovely, and of course, so peaceful.

Arabs have been killing Jews since the late 1800′s when there was no “occupation”. Recall the Hebron riots and massace of Jews in 1929, as just one example. And don’t try to suggest that “uprooting of palestinians” from their homes was a reason for anything. Arabs chose war in 1948. Arabs suffer the consequences. Fatah was founded in 1964; unless causality has no meaning, the resistance to Israel – Fatah – was born with no reference to 1967. It’s Arab rejectionism of all things non-Arab. It has nothing to do with Israel winning the war in 1967 but, rather, with Israel being reborn in 1948.
No one ever hears of outrage when the Egyptians were in possession of Gaza for almost twenty years. There was no movement toward a Palestinian state when Gaza was under the control of Egypt and the West Bank was under control of Trans-Jordan. That’s because it was Arabs controlling the regions. But now that Jews were returning to their indigenous homeland, the Arabs decided to wage war.
Jews are not the usurpers in Jerusalem. They have been living there since the Biblical era and have been the majority population since the 19th century. Jews have synagogues and other holy sites in most cities of the world. But do they claim sovereignty over those cities because of it? Of course not! It would be preposterous and people wouldn’t accept it. Jerusalem is the undivided capital of Israel and will remain so. That is why there is no reason at all that the Israeli government could not plan and build residences for its citizens – Jews and Arabs – in any part of the city. Those who get out of joint about that are either misinformed or looking for a pretext to create a “situation.”

Over the past century, a plague of persecution has swept across the Middle East, emptying the region of its Christian population. At the turn of the 20th century, Christians made up 26% of the Middle East’s population. Today, that figure has dwindled to less than 10%. Intolerant and extremist governments are driving away the Christian communities that have lived in the Middle East since their faith was born.
In Syrian cities like Aleppo and Damascus, Christians who refused to convert to Islam have been kidnapped, shot and beheaded by Islamist opposition fighters. In Egypt, mobs of Muslim Brotherhood members burn Coptic Christian churches in the same way they once obliterated Jewish synagogues. And in Iraq, terrorists deliberately target Christian worshippers.
Over the past 10 years, nearly two-thirds of Iraq’s 1.5 million Christians have been driven from their homes. Many settled in Syria before once again becoming victims of unrelenting persecution. Syria’s Christian population has dropped from 30% in the 1920s to less than 10% today.
In January, a report by the nondenominational Christian organization Open Doors documented the 10 most oppressive countries for Christians; nine were Muslim-majority states noted for Islamic extremism, tyrannical regimes that uphold archaic blasphemy and defamation-of-religion laws. The Islamic Republic of Iran has executed dozens of people for the crimes of “waging war against God” and “spreading corruption on Earth.”
Israel is the only country in the Middle East with a growing Christian population. Its Christian community has increased from 34,000 in 1948 to 140,000 today, in large measure because of the freedoms Christians are afforded. Salim Joubran, a Christian Arab Israeli, has served as a Supreme Court justice since 2003.
Father Gabriel Nadaf, a Greek Orthodox priest living in Israel, recently told me: “Human rights are not something to be taken for granted. Christians in much of the Middle East have been slaughtered and persecuted for their faith, but here in Israel they are protected.”
