FrontPage contributor Daniel Greenfield at the Sultan Knish blog has compiled a heartbreaking, unbearable catalog of murders of Israeli children and pregnant women at the hands of Muslim butchers who are often honored for their despicable crimes against Jews – including the unconscionable massacre of the Fogel family by two Palestinian monsters this March, which was greeted with jubilation in Gaza. He describes the enemy’s ruthless rationale behind their targeting of the future generation:
The Muslim world knows that it is weak technologically and organizationally. Its chief weapons are demographics and terror. Arafat called the womb of the Palestinian woman his greatest weapon. Europe’s statisticians are finding that out for themselves. But demographic war is only half the picture. The other half is to destroy non-Muslim families. To murder pregnant women and massacre their children.
“This is war,” Greenfield continues,
Their kind of war. The attacks on schools and on families. The massacre of entire families is a tactic. Acts of evil by a cult too horrifyingly evil for most people to even understand. What evil does best is the exploitation of innocence in order to destroy it. And who are more innocent than the children?
This is confirmed by documents uncovered from the Defense Intelligence Agency earlier this year (coincidentally on the heels of the Fogel family butchery). These Joint Task Force Intelligence Information Reports from debriefs of Guantanamo detainees show that brutality against children is part of a strategy by Islamic terrorist groups to strike fear into their opponents: “Radical Islamists are using their religion to brainwash young people to commit terrorist acts and to justify the murder of innocent children.” In typically terse language, the reports reveal that these attacks on children are deliberate psychological operations against non-believers:
TEGs [The Extremist Groups] justify their attacks on young children (ages 5 through 17) by claiming that the children are either non-believers or the children of non-believers…
TEGs attack schools and buses to maximize psychological effect. Attacks against schools and buses are used because they are easy targets…
TEGs consider attacks on children legitimate. TEGs believe that attacks on children are a religious good deed and the attackers will go to heaven. TEGs encourage their members to launch attacks on children. A fatwa, from a respected cleric, is sought prior to targeting children, but strikes occur even without authorization.
The two Palestinian slaughterers of the Fogel family, barely older than children themselves, reportedly gave Israeli authorities one of the most “shocking, cold, remorseless and detailed” reenactments they had ever witnessed. Of the two surviving Fogel boys who were also sleeping in the house but were spared because they went unnoticed, one of the savages said that he and his cohort “would not have hesitated to kill them as well.”
It’s almost impossible to conceive of such heartlessness. Who, even in the most perverse depths of the imagination, could envision intentionally harming a child or twisting that trusting innocence into murderous hatred? Only the truly sick among us, or the truly evil. The jihadists are fond of proclaiming that they love death more than we love life, and this is the essential difference between them and us. We value life, creation, love. They, in the black grip of their death cult, value death, destruction, and hatred. We are not engaged in a Clash of Civilizations. We are engaged in a Clash of Civilization and Barbarism. And for our children’s sake – all the children’s sake – this is a conflict we cannot afford to lose.
