Zionsake Editor: I once stood listening to a group of foreign pro-Arab
activists going on about the "Wall" Israel was erecting - "to harm the Arabs,"
in their view. Not being able to keep quiet, even as an outsider, I dropped
the comment: "If you have to do with animals, you need to protect yourself
with walls!" They were outraged that I could say a thing like that about
the (poor) Arabs, but a number of Israelis who had experienced the blood
thirstiness of Arabs also thought so, as can be seen in the quotes below.

"They are simply animals." They walk around
freely amongst us, but if we make a mistake and come to their areas, it could
cost us our lives." So said this morning Yaakov Shabo, one of four Israelis
who made a wrong turn on Friday into an Arab-populated neighborhood and were
saved at the last moment from a lynching. "Another minute and I would have
been dead," another of the Israelis said. "I thought we were going to end
up like those two poor soldiers who were killed in Ramallah" - a reference
to Yosef Avrahami and Vadim Norzitch who were brutally lynched in the Ramallah
police station when they made a wrong turn into the city on Oct. 12,
2000. Arutz Sheva News Service
National television broadcast scenes of a sharp dispute
that broke out yesterday morning between Health Minister Nissim Dahan (Shas)
"How *do* you see this war ending?" he was asked, and responded, "If it was
up to me, I'd end this war tomorrow." How? By showing more aggressiveness
and less mercy. It's true that a fundamental Jewish trait is that we are
'merciful ones, children of merciful ones,' but we have to fight this war
the way wars are fought. We always try to treat the other side humanely,
but the fact is that they are wild animals." Arutz-7 News: Thursday,

||So, why isn't the left out there leading pro-Israel
demonstrations? The answer is as important as it is contemptible. In
general, the left does not care about women, independent judiciaries, minorities,
democracy, gays or almost anything else for which it marches. That is why
the left opposed America's war in Afghanistan, which liberated women from
being treated like animals. Why does the Left support the
Palestinians? Dennis Prager.

"They're animals, and should be destroyed." So said
today the father of Shani Ladani, 27, of Moshav Olesh (between Netanya and
Tul Karem), who was tied up and shot to death by Palestinian murderers in
an industrial park west of Tul Karem. "They both kill us and humiliate us,"
his father sobbed.
Shani's father said that his son knew the work in the industrial zone with
many Arabs was dangerous, but felt he had no choice because of the "bad economic
situation." "It was a lynching," said IDF Yesha Commander Brig.-Gen. Gershon
Yitzchak. "They tied him up and shot him from close range, simply because
he was a Jew."
Gen. Yitzchak said that the murderers took advantage of the temporary lifting
of the closure on PA cities. Israel's intention was to allow Arab residents
to purchase supplies, but the terrorists used the time to search out and
murder a Jewish victim. Rabbi Yitzchak Levy, a government minister from the
National Religious Party (NRP), said today, "The easing of restrictions are
abused, and contribute nothing towards calming the situation... There is
no place for easing restrictions in the midst of a terrorist wave."

Just two days ago, a 10-month old baby, Shalhevet Pas,
was murdered by Palestinian sniper fire. Picture it! That sniper took
aim at a 10-month old baby!
Today's terrorist attack was also aimed at children. The terrorist, himself
just a teen-ager, was sent purposely to attack kids his own age. He mingled
easily with the teen-agers waiting at their bus-stop and then blew himself
Terror seems like too sanitized a word to describe the behavior that we are
witnessing, now on a daily basis. These are not people. Frankly, I am
not sure that animal is the right word either. Animals kill for food or in
defense. They do not seek out innocent defenseless victims for no
reason. NEWS FROM THE LAND UPDATE March 28, 2001 Editor: Sondra

The media and the Israeli left attacked the closure
as 'collective punishment' against an 'innocent peaceful population'. "Why
should so many people be blamed and punished for the acts of a few extremists,"
they ask, pointing a finger at the villainous Israeli decision-makers.
Unfortunately though, they do not point the same finger at the continuing
incitement, broadcast over Arafat's radio and television. The incitement,
pounded into the heads of Arabs throughout Israel, is a never-ending source
of violence, promising suicide bombers 'a place in paradise for eternity."
As Gush Etzion mayor Shaul Goldstein said this morning, following the terrorist
murder, "We don't have to starve the Arabs. Fill trucks with food and medical
supplies and send them into the Arab cities. Bombard them with as much food
as they want." But they must be closed in because letting them out is
synonymous with letting wild animals out of a cage. And the results speak
for themselves. Who Comes First? Hebron-Past, Present and
