In a bit of news that some pundits would say was tucked away on the proverbial “page 10” of the internet, a seventeen-year-old Palestinian has stabbed a U.S./Israeli citizen to death on the West Bank. The crime happened last Sunday, the Free Beacon has confirmed.
The American national who became a Jewish settler, Ari Fuld, 45, was well-known in the area and the youth who took his life was shot when he “was seized by arm[ed] civilians.” The murdered man was proudly pro-Israel and had been set to speak in the U.S. during the month of November. Making the issue more sickening is the fact that Hamas has called the murder a “natural response.”
Some experts will note that Arabs in Palestine promised the Jews peace if much of the Gaza Strip was handed over. When it was, Israel was soon shot at from the Gaza Strip, and settlement issues have existed ever since.
Many of those same pundits may also opine that, if a Jew had stabbed an Islamic man, this would have likely made a bigger splash in the news cycle.
After all, the victim was stabbed in the back as he shopped, a sign that many news outlets would possibly consider to be quite cowardly. Fuld is said to have given “chase” to his attacker even as he bled to death! The assailant was captured by Fuld and others who saw the assault take place.
The seventeen-year-old made it out of the situation with his life and he was arrested.
To call stabbing an innocent stranger in the back as violent murder “normal,” is outrageous, many would agree. David Friedman, the U.S. ambassador to Israel, tweeted, “America grieves as one of its citizens was brutally murdered by a Palestinian terrorist,” in contrast.
Friedman himself had helped to raise money for the Jewish settlements and said that the fallen man “represented the best of both countries and will be deeply missed.”
Of course, the problem is that Jews, Christians, and Arabs all share a deep connection with the land in this region. However, much of history seems to say to some researchers that, while Jews and Christians often get along quite well when it comes to sharing, those of the Islamic faith, in many instances, do not.
If this problem is not solved in modern times, there won’t be much left to enjoy. Each political squabble could be said to inching the world close to World War Three, too, as the Doomsday Clock scientists have opined.
Others may even suggest that the tick, tick, ticking is speeding up…
