Paramedic Is Called to the Scene of His Murdered Wife

One day before the Obama Administration succeeded in resuming peace talks between the Palestinians and the Israelis, Israel was rocked by another terrorist attack.

The West blamed the attack on "militants" who were looking for an opportunity to sabotage the resumption of peace talks. For Israelis, the attack was another indication that peace with the Palestinians is an impossible reality.

In the latest terrorist attack,  a car with four people inside came under fire in the West Bank by Palestinian snipers from Hamas. When it was all over, all four people were massacred with gun shot wounds spearing their internal organs. The four occupants in the vehicle were Yitzhak Ames, 47, and his wife Tali Ames, 45, Kochava Ben- Haim, 37, and Avishai Schindler, 24.  The husband and wife had picked up two hitchhikers. While en route to their destination, the Palestinian terrorists fired on the vehicle from afar and then approached the occupants and fired on them at close range.

When paramedics arrived on the scene, all of the victims bodies were strewn on the street.

In an anguishing turn of  events, completely unaware of what he was about to discover,  Momy Ben-Haim one of the paramedics who was called to the scene of the terrorist attack was shocked to observe  his wife Kochava's body strewn on the ground. Kochava happened to be one of the doomed hitchhikers who was picked up for a ride by Mr. and Mrs. Ames.

When observing his dead wife lying motionless on the ground, Ben-Haim screamed and shouted "That’s my wife! That’s my wife!" He was taken away from the scene immediately to his home. 

Terrorist attacks in Israel are not just attacks on the victims. They are an attack on the entire nation.

If the Palestinians ever have any shot of convincing Israelis that they are committed to peace, they will have to rein in on the terror that killed these four occupants and wrecked the life of an innocent paramedic who had no way of knowing that his life would be changed forever in a matter of minutes as he embarked on the scene of unfortunately a routine terrorist attack.

Pro-Mosque Supporters are Hidden Anti-Semites

Obama Backs Ground Zero Mosque

Its official.

Obama has weighed in on the Ground Zero Mosque controversy.  

Can anyone guess where the President stands on this issue?

No surprise. Obama supports the building of the Mosque next to Ground Zero.

He told reporters during a trip in Florida "Muslims have the right to build a mosque near New York's Ground Zero."

Obama later clarified his remarks by stating that he did not intend to comment on the wisdom of the project.

Either way, Obama is in tank with a Mosque which is funded by radical Islamicists.

And the fallout is just beginning.  GOP Senator John Cornyn predicts that Obama's support for the Mosque could hurt him politically in the Fall elections.

Never Give Up on Life


Zakaria Snubs the ADL

CNN's Fareed Zakaria, Host of Fareed Zakaria GPS, made his own headline  this week when he sent shock waves across the media world announcing that he was returning an award that he received from the ADL in 2005.

The Anti-Defamation League, headed by Abraham Foxman, is one of the premier civil rights organizations in the United States whose mission is to  fight all forms of racism in particular Antisemitism.

The ADL awarded its Hubert H. Humphrey First Amendment Freedoms Prize to Zakaria five years ago.

Zakaria was disturbed that the ADL opposed the building of the Ground Zero Mosque which prompted him to return the award, including a $10,000.00 stipend, to the ADL. Zakaria claimed that he could not in good conscience keep the award in light of the ADL's opposition to the Ground Zero Mosque.

Abraham Foxman responded by asserting that he was "stunned, saddened and speechless" by Zakaria's decision to return the award.

Unfortunately, Zakaria has taken his liberal agenda too far.

While it is true that the ADL does have an illustrious record in promoting and encouraging religious freedom, it can not be expected to support an institution which is funded by the very radical elements which perpetuated 9/11.

The ADL and others have made the decision to oppose the building the Ground Zero Mosque for a very legitimate reason since it correctly believes that constructing such an institution in close proximity to the ruins of the World Trade Center would be an affront to the memories of the victims of 9/1.

The founder of the Ground Zero Mosque claims that he funded the building of the Islamic center to foster interfaith dialogue. However, Faisal Abdul Rauf is notorious for spewing anti-American rhetoric.

Madeline Brooks of the American Thinker overheard Rauf   in one of his sermons denying that Muslims perpetuated 9/11. This illogical delusional mindset is consistent with an interview Rauf gave on CNN after 9/11. In the interview, Rauf blamed the U.S. for 9/11 asserting "U.S. policies were an accessory to the crime that happened. We [the U.S.] have been an accessory to a lot of innocent lives dying in the world. Osama bin Laden was made in the USA." 

Rauf has also blabbered in the past "terrorism will end only when the West acknowledges the harm it has done to Muslims."

Does Zakaria really believe in good faith that the ADL would support a Mosque  spearheaded by a terrorist-supporting Imam?

Rauf is also known to be connected to the radical Islamic terrorist sympathizer group CAIR.  His organization, Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow, which raised the $4.85 million in cash dollars for the Ground Zero Mosque, is associated with Saudi Arabian leaders. 

How could anyone support the building of Mosque so close to Ground Zero funded by the very country which raised the 9/11 hijackers?

Moreover, if anyone believes that this Mosque is not going to be a conduit for the radical Islamization of America, think again.

In addition to Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow, Rauf started the Cordoba Initiative. The Cordoba Initiative endorses Sharia law and monitors how each country, including America, follows Sharia law. Sharia law is a rigid system which requires that governance be based on the Koran without any democratic intervention.

Rauf is now bringing his Cordoba Initiative Saudi -backed Muslim Leaders of Tomorrow partnership to the very heart of America.

Shame on Zakaria for publicly deriding the premier Jewish civil rights organization simply because they refused to support an Islamic terrorist enterprise.

Freedom of religion does have its limits which Zakaria fails to understand.

In retrospect, it is a good thing that Zakaria returned the award to the ADL. He does not deserve to have such a distinguished award after all.
