Israeli InsanityBy Ali Baghdadi
The characterization of Noam Friedman, who last Christmas fired his Israeli Army assault rifle at Palestinian shoppers in a crowded Hebron market, is an "unbalanced" young man, should not come as a surprise to anyone. The world has heard this version of the story as told by Israeli officials many times earlier. Jewish murderers of unarmed Palestinian civilians were all described as deranged individuals in need for psychiatric treatment. Israeli courts usually give them lenient sentences, and shortly after they are released and pardoned.
In 1994 Baruch Goldstein entered a hall in the Tomb of the Patriarchs in Hebron, and murdered 29 Muslim worshipers kneeling down in prayer before being killed by angry survivors of the ugly massacre. The Israeli army provided the automatic assault rifle and the bullets.
In 1993 Yoram Skolnick shot dead a bound Palestinian. Soon Mr. Skolnick who was described as disturbed individual will be set free and given a new opportunity to murder more innocent Palestinians.
In 1992 four members of "Kahane lives" group threw a hand grenade into a meat market in Jerusalem killing and wounding several Palestinians. As usual, the men will be released before their 15 year term sentence is over.
In 1990 Israeli army reservist Ami Popper shot and murdered seven Palestinian workers waiting at a crossroads.
In 1984 David Ben Simol fired a Lau rocket into a bus carrying Palestinian laborers. Eleven men were killed or injured. The so-called "insane" man was released last year having served part of his sentence.
In 1983 three members of he "Jewish underground" opened fire at the Islamic University in Hebron killing three students. The "insane" murderers were later pardoned.
In 1982 Alllen Goodman entered al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem and opened fire at Muslim worshipers.
Earlier, an Australian Jewish immigrant set fire to al-Aqsa Mosque. Islamic historical treasures that cannot be replaced were burned.
Those are only a few examples of a long list of Israeli Jews who were labeled by the Israeli government as "disturbed", "unbalanced", or "insane" for murdering Palestinians and desecrating Muslim shrines. Their crimes were dismissed by the Zionist media as the acts of isolated loners who were despised and rejected. However, the great number of Jews, in Israel and abroad, describe these men as "heroes" who rejected the law of man and obeyed a commandment of the Torah.
When he was asked why he fired into the crowd of Palestinians, Friedman who is described as insane reiterated the same biblical episode cited by religious leaders who oppose Israeli troop redeployment from most of Hebron as agreed to by the Oslo agreements. "Abraham bought the Cave of the Patriarchs for 400 shekels of silver... No one will return it."
The Israeli justice system is also "insane". Three Israeli soldiers who recently admitted killing a Palestinian motorist were fined one "agora"--one third of a cent--and released.
Last year, the Israeli Supreme Court issued a ruling allowing the use of torture in interrogation of Palestinian prisoners, a violation of the Geneva agreements.
The Israeli leaders and generals who, among their endless crimes, ordered the bombardment of the village of Qana in southern Lebanon are also insane. The massacre resulted in the killing of over 100 men, women, and children who took refuge in the UN compound to escape Israeli shelling.
The Israeli society that sanctions these crimes and describes Goldstein as a saint also erected a memorial by his grave in Hebron in his honor is also insane.
Zionist Jews in America who make pilgrimage to the grave of Goldstein to offer their prayers and donations as a tribute to his "courage, sacrifice and dedication" are insane.
Unless this phenomena of insanity is broken, and Israel ceases to exist as a Zionist state based on insanity, the Middle East will not enjoy peace.
