Host: Vic Eliason
Guest: David Rubin
Vic began by describing a recent meat-cleaver attack on worshippers in a synagogue by Palestinian terrorists. Why did CNN call it a deadly attack on a Jerusalem mosque? Why did another source allege that 4 Israeli’s and 2 Palestinians were dead in Jerusalem without saying who the Palestinians were when in fact, they were the attackers?
Joining Vic to discuss this was David Rubin. David is a former mayor of Shiloh, Israel, in the region of Samaria, known to most as the West Bank. He is the founder and president of Shiloh Israel Children’s Fund dedicated to healing the trauma of children who have been victims of terrorists attacks as well as rebuilding the biblical heartland of Israel. He is author of Peace for Peace: Israel in the New Middle East and The Islamic Tsunami: Israel and America in the Age of Obama.
According to David, during a recent morning prayer service at a synagogue in a quiet, residential neighborhood on the northwestern side of Jerusalem, 2 terrorists, one who worked at a neighborhood grocery store, went into the synagogue with a gun, meat cleavers and axes. They began randomly flailing away at the worshippers leaving them in pools of blood. In the end, 4 worshippers died. 3 out of the 4 were ordained rabbis. A police officer was also killed and about 13 people were wounded.
David noted that this was not one isolated incident carried out by two spontaneous individuals. This is part of a pattern. There has been a series of terrorist attacks in the past month in Jerusalem. In each case the victims were Jewish, Israeli and there were no cases of Arabs being attacked and/or killed.
This incident points to what David believes is the incitement of terrorism by Mahmoud Abbas, his financing of terrorism and the monthly payment of terrorists by his Palestinain Authority. In fact, David alleged that terrorists are being payed by Abbas and the Palestinian Authority regardless of whether they are from his own terrorist organization called Fatah or whether they’re from Hamas, Islamic Jihad and probably ISIS as well.
David would like to see Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, address not only the incitement but also the encouragement and financing of terrorism. This would include sending the Army into Ramallah which is the headquarters for the Palestinian Authority, destroy their headquarters, collect the documents that prove their complicity with terrorism and then start a public relations campaign. The P.R.campaign would involve reporting what they find to the world, explaining that because the Palestinian Authority has been financing terrorism, the Oslo Peace Accords and the Palestinian Authority are both null and void.
