The Long Arm of Jewish Justice

By Michael Freund
The Jerusalem Post
March 24, 2004

The world was made a whole lot safer this past Monday, when Israeli helicopters eliminated Hamas arch-terrorist Sheikh Ahmed Yassin in a pre-dawn strike in Gaza.

The removal of this villain, whose warped ideology brought about the deaths of hundreds of innocents, was a heroic and just act, one that should be celebrated as an important milestone in the global war on terror.

Despite his innocent demeanor, Yassin was a monster, an evil man hell-bent on sowing death and destruction. As head of Hamas, he spent the past decade disseminating hate, dispatching suicide bombers and targeting innocent Israeli men, women and children.

Don’t fall prey to the media’s attempts to label him a “spiritual leader”. There is nothing spiritual about a mass murderer of Jews and there is nothing holy about someone who sent Palestinian children to detonate themselves as human bombs.

Yassin was a menace both to Israel and the West. Under his tutelage, Hamas carried out some 425 terror attacks in just the past three and a half years, killing 377 Israelis and injuring over 2,000 others.

He brazenly declared that “all Israeli people are targets” (The Washington Times, June 12, 2003), and insisted that, “All of Israel, Tel Aviv included, is occupied Palestine. So we're not actually targeting civilians” (St. Petersburg Times, August 11, 2001).

Yassin rejected Israel’s right to exist and repeatedly called for the destruction of the Jewish state. Just three months ago, in a December 2003 interview with the German magazine Der Spiegel, he denied the possibility of co-existence, telling his interviewer that if the Jews insisted on having a country of their own, “They could set up a state in Europe”.

Less than two years ago, shortly after Palestinian terrorists carried out a bomb attack at the Hebrew University, Yassin told the Italian daily Corriere Della Sera that, “Israel was born in violence and it will die in violence. The Jews have no right to the land of Palestine”.

Yassin was an equal-opportunity hater, directing his venom not only at Israel, but also at the West. Last year, after the US invasion of Iraq had begun, he repeatedly called on the Iraqi people to carry out suicide attacks against British and American forces. At a March 28, 2003 rally in Gaza, Yassin urged Iraqis to “continue their jihad, and to use all possible means to achieve victory against the British and American enemies”.

Though they would never admit it, the Palestinians themselves will also benefit from Yassin’s demise, if only because he can no longer spread his poisonous and lethal philosophy among them.

But despite his horrific record, much of the world was quick to condemn the killing of Yassin, with everyone from UK Foreign Secretary Jack Straw to Kofi Annan to the Japanese government coming down hard on Israel for having the nerve to defend itself.

But let them say what they wish, because it matters not one whit. The fact is that we can all take pride in this bold demonstration of sovereign Jewish power, in the ability of the State of Israel to hunt down and punish those who would follow in Hitler’s footsteps.

Israel’s critics must finally realize that the era of pogroms is over, that the Jew will no longer cower in fear from his adversaries, or seek protection from others. We have returned to the world stage, we have every right to defend ourselves, and that is what we shall do.

The long arm of Jewish justice took care of Sheikh Yassin, and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon deserves nothing but praise for having the courage and the good sense to do so.

The elimination of Sheikh Yassin is on par with the capture of Saddam Hussein and the removal of Taliban leader Mullah Omar from power. It marks a turning point in the war on terror, the purging of yet another fanatical chieftain from the world stage.

And it also signifies Israel’s determination, like that of Washington, to confront its enemies and take the war to their own backyards, if need be.

Let the cynics and naysayers grumble all they wish. There is never a “wrong” time to eliminate a killer of Jews, or to strike a forceful blow against terrorist thugs. Whatever the diplomatic or security fallout might be, Israel has done the right thing, at the right time, and to the right person.

On Monday morning, shortly after Yassin was killed, his associate Ismail Haniyeh confirmed his death, telling reporters that he had always hoped to die as a “martyr”.

“This is the moment Sheikh Yassin dreamed about”, he said.

This is one case, at least, where we can all be grateful that the Hamas leader’s dream has finally come true, courtesy of the IDF.

The writer served as Deputy Director of Communications & Policy Planning in the Prime Minister’s Office under former premier Binyamin Netanyahu.

I say ya and amen to that. May Israel and the US (all free democratic nations) continue to eradicate terrorists wherever they are and don't stop until they get the message that they could be next. -- Eddie.

Great article!

Israel has always had to be the "mistress", giving support behind the scenes but never allowed to appear at the bar! As soon as she does she is automatically condemned without so much as an intelligent thought to ask the question why. Well, at last Israel is returning to the days of yore, a trick out of the hat when we all were beginning to ask where next. Never mind the criticism. These critics will soon feel the benefit even if they don't care to admit it! The mistress is out and she'll either be embraced or not as the case may be, but she will definitely have the last smile!


Mistress

many a maiden knows that tune
slipping out of the back-room saloon:

the lute harping, fiddling the lyre,
notes strumming, mellow desire,
sighs whispering, sneaking on by
mystery lingering, veiled and so shy;

mistress of the dark, lying still,
mindful of the stark, consensual will,
never to embark, from the over the hill,
considered a mark, of sacred goodwill;

silent concealment governs all round
presiding over that back-room of town.
