It is an ongoing intifada with no end in sight; or is it an attrition Holocaust!?
I received a barrage of articles announcing Ari Fuld’s sudden death, cause, a murder by a demented, incited to murder Israeli-Jews, and Islamo-Nazi. It was as if a bayonet had penetrated the heart of the nation of Israel.
I knew Ari from the videos he shared and I sensed I know him personally. His compassion for the truth about Israel, his opposition to the lies the Arabs and anti-Israel people fabricate about Israel was obvious. His love for the Land of Israel had no boundaries.
The ongoing senseless murdering of Jews by the Arabs in the Land of Israel always brings my blood to a boiling point; this time, with Ari’s murder, even more because the loss of Ari was a great loss of a true defender of Israel; a man every Israeli should emulate.
Victims of Peace
My head filled with questions:
- How many more Jews will be murdered before the government of Israel finally declares it is a war and treats it as war?
- When will Israel finally declare it a war, not a “peace process,” “victims of peace,” as it should, and should have done long ago?
- Are Israel Defense Forces (IDF) / the government of Israel afraid of the Islamo-Nazis in their midst?
- Is the IDF is self-castrated by legal means, as it appears to be, and thus its actions to protect the citizens are very problematic?
- Why does Israel allow Jews to be murdered by Arabs when the state could have ended this grisly state of affairs long ago? Maybe end this ongoing murder of Jews by actions that many not be palatable to the world but who cares so long as the ongoing murdering of Jews ENDS?
The murder of Ari Fuld has hit Israel hard. Ari was but the latest in the unending procession of Jews who have been murdered in the Arab war of extermination against Israel. Each of these murders is an unspeakable, unfathomable tragedy.
I had to pause for a few days and wait out the reactions in order to weigh on the murder of Ari Fuld. It infuriated me. Needless to say I was irate. The murdering of Jews must end. Not one more Jew SHOULD / COULD be murdered, no matter what!
Reactions to Attack and Death of Ari Fuld
I read the many reactions to the attack and the consequencial death of Ari Fuld:
“It is with great shock and sadness that the ILTV family announces that Ari Fuld, a father of four, the host of ILTV’s weekly Frenemies Show and a leading voice in Israel has been stabbed and killed in a heinous terrorist attack today.”
“On Sunday, a man who devoted his existence to fighting hatred and genocidal mass murder lost his life to the very evil that he fought. Despite his wounds, Fuld chased and shot his attacker, thus preventing possible more casualties.”
“Ari Fuld’s murder caused particular grief because he was a fighter for his people – a selfless, tenacious Israeli patriot who worked tirelessly and put his life on the line to stand up for the rights of the Jews in their historic land and to protect them from harm. And now he is fallen, a victim himself of that very harm.”
“Fuld was committed to fighting the lies and demonization about Israel that pours daily out of the western media.”
The Times of Israel reported: “He was mourned in an outpouring of social media tributes, with friends and ideological opponents alike, eulogizing the Israel advocate and former karate instructor as an unflinching champion of the Jewish state and fearless fighter to the end.”
“Ari Fuld’s work was necessitated by the baseless hatred and ceaseless attacks directed against Israel and the Jewish people from the Arab world – sanitized, supported and incentivized by the indifference, or active incitement, by those in the west who hate Israel and want it gone.”
Ari was murdered by Khalil Jabarin, a 17 year-old Arab boy. This murderous act was but the latest in a string of teenage Arab terrorists who are attacking Israeli Jews. The reason, as Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) observes, “They are being incited to hatred and murder of Jews by the Palestinian Authority education system and its media which tell them that ‘all Israelis deserve to be killed and that dying while committing a terror attack is ‘the path to excellence and greatness … the great victory’.”
Bassam Tawil, an Arab journalist, links Jabarin’s attack directly to the ongoing incitement by PA president Mahmoud Abbas, who, for decades has been receiving billions of dollars from the West, and Ari Fuld’s blood is on Abbas’ hands.
In his latest incitement against Israel speech before the PLO Executive Committee in Ramallah, on September 15, 2018, Abbas repeated the old libel that Israel was planning to establish special Jewish prayer zones inside the Al-Aqsa Mosque. This type of speech ignites Arabs, already brainwashed and with well-greased minds with anti-Jew indoctrination. It is the call to viciously act against the Jews in Israel.
Remembering Ari Fuld
“TERROR in Israel: It is with great shock and sorrow that we announce the murder of our show host, Ari Fuld, by an Arab terrorist; Israel News Talk is heartbroken … Ari Fuld died defending Jewish lives.”
“Mahmoud Abbas: Fresh American blood on his hands, Abbas’s responsibility for the murder Ari Fuld, a Lion of Israel.”
“There are few people in the world of which one could say ‘at least he is on the job’; at least we have him leading us. At least someone is answering the call and fearlessly fighting for Israel with every drop of his strength. Ari Fuld was one of those few.”
“This was the assassination of a general. All of Am Yisrael is weeping right now. And if we’re not, we should be. There are simply no words. No words.”
“StandWithUs mourns the tragic loss of Ari Fuld z”l, a 45-year-old husband and father of 4, an Israeli-American, an active and avid lover and defender of Israel and a resident of Efrat (located 12 kilometers south of Jerusalem, between Bethlehem and Hebron). Ari was stabbed in the back by a 17-year-old Arab terrorist and fought back heroically, chasing after the terrorist and shooting him before he could murder anyone else. Ari succumbed to his wounds at the hospital. StandWithUs mourn his loss together with all people of good will in Israel and across the world. As we grieve for Ari and his family, we also demand that the international community prevent his killer from being rewarded for this cowardly and barbaric act of murder.”
“Israeli leaders across the political spectrum mourn terror-killing of U.S.-born activist. Israeli patriot – gone, but never forgotten! This short sample of his work shows the love of country that made Ari Fuld a giant, standing strong for Israel!”
“Ari Fuld – an enormous loss in the battle for the Land of Israel and in the battle for Israeli sovereignty. Ari held fast to the Land of Israel using every tool at his disposal. A strong, person who radiated power and Jewish pride, he left the diaspora behind, and with it, the diaspora worldview. He totally dedicated himself to instilling faith in the next generation. He stood strong and proud, even in his final moments as a cowardly Arab terrorist stabbed him in the back.”
“ZOA (Zionist Organization of America) mourns extraordinary Jewish patriot Ari Fuld, murdered by teenage PalArab terrorist incited by Mahmoud Abbas. In Ari’s Memory, ZOA urges Israel to build new Judea/Samaria community, urges all to support U.S. education department office of Civil Rights to issue strong definition of Anti-Semitism.”
Ari’s friend Avi Abelow wrote: “Israeli superman overcomes stabbing to shoot Muslim terrorist and then dies … I’m devastated. My friend Ari Fuld was just murdered by a Muslim terrorist in the Judean Hills. He was a proud Jew and he will be remembered for the hero he was, in life and in death … “
“Ari Fuld’s embrace of the land of Israel was just as a mother cuddles her baby and in his death they got untied. Who will continue is his footsteps with a tighter hug?”
“Terror victim Ari Fuld mourned as ‘larger than life’ hero, a champion for Israel. Friends, family, students, and ideological opponents eulogize US-born victim’s passion, bravery, and determination.”
One reads the comments, as above, excerpts from longer eulogizing lines, all manifest and make one realize that Ari Fuld’s murder shone a powerful spotlight on the facts. The fact is that it is all about the Islamo-Nazi Arabs’ multiple fronts war on Israel, on Jews.
Israel’s Flaws That Must Be Corrected
Israel is weak on defending its citizens.
Israel fatally capitulated to Islamic terror, not ending it. Ari Fuld’s murder is the latest example of this scandalous phenomenon.
Israel often treats its citizen unfairly. The overbearing taxes, irritating bureaucracy, overly expensive and thus unattainable prices of homes, and the fragile security all sum up the country’s Achilles heel, driving many young Israelis to seek living elsewhere.
The thought that giving away land to Israel’s steadfast foes will bring peace to the land is a myth. It has harmed Israel and caused a hardly reparable damage situation in the land.
Israel’s military strength is imperative to its survival. Yet, the IDF fights through lawyers and through the ‘what the world will say’ view. The result is a military force that cannot achieve deterrence and victory but receives endless vile criticism. We can see it on the border with Gaza, arson balloons and kites destroy vast areas of land in Israel and the mighty IDF is at a standstill, scratching its head for ways to fight this destructive phenomenon.
Israel is a sitting duck. The government of Israeli is too afraid – past and present – of public opinion. Therefore, it cannot and will not win the war against the PalArab-Islamo-Nazi movement of hate and violence against the country and its citizens. This movement has once again made the living of Jews in many countries in the world dangerous and also to Israel.
The Israeli people deserve much better; they deserve a government that acts for peace, not appeases the enemy for fake peace.
Will Anything Change?
Ari Fuld will be mourned and then life will go on until the next victim falls to the ineptness of keeping home safe.
For the immediate moment, the government of Israel will recognize Ari Fuld’s loss and heroism. However and ultimately it will appeal to the United States and the ‘international community’, whatever that community is, to condemn this act. Has anyone ever thought what condemnation mean? It means blame. What will blame achieve? Will it end the murder of Jews in the land of Israel? Of course not!
The government of Israel and way too many Jews suffer from the belief that defending themselves requires permission from the world, i.e. the United Nations Organization (UN), the United States, the rest of the world. Ari Fuld knew no such permission was needed. Many with his mindset know it too. However, their words, as a choir, go largely unheeded by the government of Israel that claims to be ‘hawkish,’ a term that long ago lost its true meaning.
Hopefully, this rather sad, murder of Ari, may, just may, have some impact on the political and military direction of the state of Israel. In his death, rather than in life, with Ari’s call for action, his activism, his passion of defending the land, is it possible the government of Israel will take itself in its own hands and change the way it acts.
Israel Only Counts The Dead
Israel takes the living for granted; it appears it only counts the dead. Only after an overbearing number of casualties does it take worthy action. Case in point, Gaza. The terror from this terrorism enclave would have ended long ago if Israel acted properly; maybe act not along the conventional thinking but acted to end Gaza’s existence. Is it that not enough Jews have died and not enough land went aflame to finally bring the government of Israel to find the PROPER solution for Gaza?
Unfortunately, by now we are allowed to think that only a miracle will make the Israeli leaders amass the courage needed to eradicate the Islamo-Nazis, anti-Semite Arabs who named themselves “Palestinians” once and for all.
Ari was the voice of many who have tried and are trying to make the case for Israel to defend her citizens without apology, without holding back.
There will be many more Aris if Israel does not announce: it is a war and acts the part.
Flaws In Conventional Thinking
The flaws in conventional thinking Israel created in her own hands must be wiped out and forgotten!
In his visit to comfort the Fuld mourners family, Naftali Bennett, Israel Education Minister, told the family, “You have a heroic uncle, brother and son. He lived as a hero and met his death as a hero. And how many strengths are there in your wonderful family, you are the essence of Zionism. May his memory be blessed.”
I beg to differ Mr. Bennett: Ari Fuld’s love for Israel was heroic. Ari Fuld lived a life of danger because he chose to tell the truth about the land so many in Israel dodge telling. Ari Fuld met his death because a coward subhuman Islamo-Nazi came behind him and stabbed him to death, murdered him; that is a crime beyond all crimes. Ari did not die a hero he lived as a hero but died because people like his murderer rove the streets of Israel freely! Get them out of the land!
Ari Fuld would have said: The essence of Zionism will avenge my murder.
Is This Another Auschwitz?
Ari knew that there should never be an Auschwitz again. Do we, Jews, know that too?
Ari Fuld was murdered on the eve of the Yom Kippur, when, 45 years ago, on Saturday, October 6, 1973, the Yom Kippur War of 1973 began. This was a war that almost ended Israel’s existence, a war its subsequence brought about a peace treaty with Egypt and Jordan. A war that brought about the Oslo Accords and the ongoing ‘victims of the peace process’ but there is no peace in sight.
The nation of Israel has been orphaned of one more wonderful child.
Ari Fuld was murdered on the Yom Kippur eve, 2018. For his soul and for the Nation of Israel we must say: reflection of what was done wrong; determination to stand tall and firm in the face of the Islamo-Nazis and anti-Semitism; we must turn a new page to keep the people of Israel SAFE, especially when they shop in Gush Etzion.
To the list of those who were brutally murdered by demented Arabs and by a barbaric world, for no other reason than the hatred of Jews, we now add the name of Ari Fuld.
Enough prevaricating. Every Israeli and Jew must now become Ari Fuld!
