Not What I Planned To Write

Today’s post was supposed to be all about this month’s field trip with Yad Yitzhak Ben Zvi, as part of the course “929 on the map of Israel”,  about which I have written in previous posts.

Instead, I have to write about the murder of a beautiful, young Jewish woman, Shlomit Krigman, and the attempted murder of another woman, in yet another cowardly Arab terrorist attack in a supermarket, yesterday afternoon. This comes hard on the heels of the murder, last week, of a young Jewish mother of six, Dafna Meir,  stabbed to death at the entrance to her own home, in the Jewish community of Otniel, as she protected her children from a 15-year-old “Palestinian” terrorist. The latter, unlike the two cowardly scumbags who murdered Shlomit Krigman, managed to escape and was only captured two days later. His father announced that he was proud of his son! If there were any truth in the lies put about by Sweden’s antisemitic Foreign Minister, Margot Wallström, the teenage murderer would not have been taken alive. Personally, I would have been happy if this piece of human excrement had been stupid enough to open fire on the Israeli security forces and been shot resisting arrest, as was Nashat Milhem, an Israeli Arab, who murdered three people (including an Arab taxi driver) and wounded many others in a shooting attack on a Tel Aviv pub on January 1st. Milhem managed to evade the police and security forces, generating a week-long manhunt, culminating in a shootout in which the spawn of Satan was shot dead. The fact is, Israeli security forces do not carry out “extra-judicial executions”, and do their best to capture terrorists alive.
Shooting a terrorist who is coming at you with a knife – even if that terrorist is a 13-year-old girl hell-bent on becoming a shahida, or martyr – is not judicial execution. It is self-defence.

So I am sure you will understand why today, I do not feel like writing about a carefree day spent exploring the history of King David’s Jerusalem, or even a review of the wonderful book I started reading last week.
Maybe in a day or two…
I promise…

About Shimona from the Palace

Born in London, the UK, I came on Aliyah in my teens and now live in Jerusalem, where I practice law. I am a firm believer in the words of Albert Schweitzer: "There are two means of refuge from the sorrows of this world - Music and Cats." To that, you can add Literature. To curl up on the sofa with a good book, a cat at one's feet and another one on one's lap, with a classical symphony or concerto in the background - what more can a person ask for?

    Great blog as usual.

  2. Antisemitism and its principle manifestation (anti-Zionism) appears to be on the rise. What annoys me is that we are letting the lies go largely unchallenged.
