From Arnold Ahelrt in yesterday's New York Post:
ON Sunday, Daniel Wultz, a Florida teenager, finally succumbed to injuries sustained in an April 17 suicide bombing in Tel Aviv. He was 16.
A tragedy? Consider the following:
* Abu Amin, Islamic Jihad leader in the northern West Bank, comparing Wultz to the suicide bomber who blew up the restaurant, killing 10 and injuring 60: "Our hero believed in Allah and died while fighting for Allah, but your pig was killed in a restaurant in an area full of prostitution."
* Abu Nasser, a leader of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, which took "credit" for the bombing: "This is a gift from Allah. We wish this young dog will go directly with no transit to hell."
Once again the psychosis that apologists refer to as a "resistance movement" is revealed. Yet those who espouse the bankruptcy of "one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter" will no doubt characterize Daniel's death as a result of the ongoing war against "occupation."
Which is why no mentions of the above has appeared in most mainstream media outlets. Cannot let the facts get into the way of the storyline, can we? Jews as victims are so passe; Americans cannot by definition ever be victims (we are oppressors, after all), so let's keep rolling with the "occupation" theme. And let's keep Abu Nasser's "young dog" statement out of the papers, OK? After all, I am sure he probably doesn't really mean it, it is probably just pent-up rage from years of suffering at the hands of his Israeli occupiers and his American oppressors...
My heart goes out to the Wultz family; may they eventually find some peace. But I pray that Israel is turning a cold eye towards those whom killed him, and intend to mete out a justice that these animals can understand.
