Parasha: “Vayakhel / יקלה ”
Copyright Sha’i ben-Tekoa 2016
Shalom laYehudim, Shalom laBnai Noach, Shalom laGoyim” It is the evening of the 2nd day, kaf beAdar Alef, Parashas Vayakhel tav-shin-ayin-vav, the evening of the 1st day, Sunday, 28 February 2016, webcasting from the target of evil hatred in every generation…
Evil hatred in every generation…though ours may be unique for being able to record the scene as it really happened. I think Arutz 7 made a poor editorial judgment by refusing to post on its website the video from the security camera in Ma’aleh Adumim’s mall at 1:15 last Friday morning when evil was done before the camera, the likes of which I have never seen before. So the link posted comes from the JPost site.
Arutz 7 said it wanted to shield the family of Tzvika Cohen, 48, four kids, a few weeks from a bar mitzvah, only now he is the latest victim of these Arabs whose cruelty, their sadism, displays their psychopathy, a fancy 19th century invention of a word rooted in Greek and Latin meaning “sickness of the soul,” and I say that fits what is on display in this video. Arutz 7 wants to shield the family. Okay, but at some point, I think, every civilized person must see the video that I think is unique. This is the visual record of a psychopath seized by a demonic hatred of Jews that drives him to want to not only murder a Jew but torture and humiliate him and make him beg for mercy.
This Arab with his hatchet is one sick sonofafemaleass to do this to a man. Come up behind him and bash him in the skull with the hatchet and sink it into him again and again. Tzvika on the floor cannot rise and can only lift an arm, which is no defense. Again and again and again this animal-like man chops away like a butcher only not into an animal carcass but a living human being whom this savage enjoys, for sure, sinking that hatchet into, into this Jew’s head and body.
By the way, in the above sentence for the first time ever, I think, in 18 years of doing commentary, I used the word “animal” to describe the Arabs. I have never liked it when people do that. It is enough to call them evil, cruel, barbaric savages but not animals.
Well, after watching this video, I finally broke through that barrier and used the term “animal” to describe that Arab with that hatchet in hand, chopping and chopping into poor Tzvika Cohen.
Of course, the analogy is not perfect. I imagine that when a lion or tiger surprises you in the jungle and clamps his jaws around your throat, he is not there to torture you. You’re just lunch to him. Nothing personal, nothing evil about it at all.
But here there is a malice, an evil power driving this maniacal Muslim in his horrific attack on poor Tzvika, bushwhacked, ambushed. The Muslims talk the “armed struggle,” when in their style of lethal violence, they don’t like to struggle at all. They like to ambush unsuspecting, unarmed people and give them no chance to struggle. The Arabs fight dirty.
So I invite you all to gaze upon this 1:06 clip that seems to go on forever. The horror never seems to end.
The IDF/GSS say the attacker is known and will be caught. I hope he resists and gets killed on the spot. Who needs this animal-like humanoid infected with some kind of spiritual rabies that turns Jews in his eyes into objects of loathing, like water to rabid dogs? Who needs him in our institutions, eating food at our expense until he is put on trial and of course given a lawyer?
[Gail adds: The security guard, Tzvika Cohen ben Batya, was rushed to Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem. Cohen, a father of four, is in serious condition in the hospital’s critical care unit.
Israeli security forces on Sunday arrested Saadi Ali Abu Hammad, One of the terrorist’s relatives called police and turned him in. Police forces say it was because of the immense pressure security forces put on the area with roadblocks and random security checks.
The Shin Bet said Abu Hamed, who managed to escape the scene but left his bloody ax behind, has tied himself to the attack, in which 48-years-old Tzvika Cohen, an Israeli security guard, was critically wounded.
At the time of this report, (Feb. 25, 2016) Tzvika Cohen is still in very serious condition following surgery for his head wound at Hadassah Hospital, he remains unconscious and on a respirator.]
Well, one benefit of the current style of Jew-killing in what some are calling the Knife Intifada is that compared to the last Intifada, this has been a vast improvement by Israel in, if not eliminating completely then, reducing significantly the Arabs’ ability to Jew-kill. It is something in them like an elephant in must. They are driven in every decade to erupt in some way thirsty for Jewish blood, virtually concupiscent in their lust to murder Jews. It is a generational thing, a hormonal thing. As usual, the preponderance of these Muslim maniacs with knives and axes and hatchets are 16 and 17 years old, just like Ishmael when expelled from kind Abraham’s camp.
It is not pleasant, this current wave of Jew-killing, this new ‘modus operandi’, and not least because we are still scratching our heads over how to deal with it. But we must be patient. Let us not forget it took five years for Intifada No. 2 to be suppressed. Well, this one is only in its fifth month and murdering far fewer Jews than in the past.
I think this period could even become beneficial in prodding our leaders to come up with some news ideas including how to finally put the Oslo delirium down like a rabid dog, finish it off.
I think Israel must publicize this security camera capture of this wild ass of a man trying to murder a Jew who had done him no wrong. Israel has to be “a light to the nations” in the matter of the menace of belligerent Islam, a term I like much more than radical or extremist Islam. Belligerent Islam from the Latin word for war. The Muslims are belligerent in their drive to force Islam down everybody’s throats. You can see it in the Anjem Chaudhary videos from London with his shameless declarations that England will eventually become a Muslim country.
Israel should make common cause with the West in their self-inflicted wound of allowing so many Muslims to invade and live among them. Israel has to re-brand the violence here as well, put out to pasture, so to speak, the “Israeli-Palestinian” Conflict as it is called, which my book argues is an antisemitic term.
No, Israel has to link the Arabs here who make our lives miserable to every other eruption of Islamic aggression elsewhere in the world. We have to link in the mind the sky devils of 9-11 and this latest Arab animal captured on that security camera, for they are the same people. They are the same Arabs who not only torture and kill prisoners of war; they are forever coming up with new ways to murder them in captivity. Like tying them to a post and dousing their clothes in gasoline and setting them on fire; or putting them in a cage in the water and slowly lowering the cage forcing them to drown them.
There is the beheading of prisoners of war technique we have seen, who treat their victims as if they were not men but sheep being slaughtered as an offering to their satanic deity.
As Mosab Hassan Yusuf, the Shabak agent, son of the head of Hamas in Yosh who converted to Christianity, has said, the problem with Islam is its god who is a cruel god. It is not enough for a Muslim to kill a Jew. In this video, we see unspeakable cruelty, sadism and humiliation. Islam’s god is cruel and so are Muslims.
I am reminded of a moment during the hostage crisis with Iran in 1979. My cousin was the Press Attaché and as the Embassy was being stormed, his secretary, an Iranian woman, began to weep. He asked her why and she answered, “You don’t know how cruel my people can be.”
So they were to the 52 Americans they basically kidnapped for 444 days. Because the Iranians/Muslims are barbarians, they have no respect for the conventions of diplomacy thousands of years old. You don’t kill the messenger. If country X is angry with country Y, you don’t kill country Y’s diplomats. But these Muslims are barbarians. They were in 1979 when they overran the US Embassy in Iran, and I discovered a whole history of such behavior in the Barbary Period.
Here we have that demon early Friday morning in the Ma’aleh Adumim mall about to shut down for the night, was a barbarian too, like an unbridled, untamed jackass in the desert after having eaten some locoweed, lashing out at poor Tzvika Cohen.
I say Israel should use this video for a new campaign of informing the planet that our enemies here are not poor, poor Palestinian patriots yearning for the day they can run up the flag of Balestine in a new state but in reality homicidal Muslim maniacs like those that you find in lots of countries these days.
Well, last week British Prime Minister David Cameron occasioned much gnashing of teeth here in Israel by calling Israel’s presence in Jerusalem an “occupation” and the settlements “illegal.” But, you know what, I am going to defend him. Just the other week he did Israel much good by instituting anti-BDS laws, and in this case, I think he was just doing his duty as the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
Here is what Cameron said that prompted Prime Minister Netanyahu the next day to snap back and imply that without Israel ruling in Jerusalem, Christian holy sites would be destroyed.
The day before, Cameron was challenged with a question in the House of Commons by a Muslim MP, and he replied, “I am well known for being a strong friend of Israel, but I have to say the first time I visited Jerusalem and had a proper tour around that wonderful city and saw what has happened with the effective encirclement of east Jerusalem, I found it genuinely shocking. We are supporters of Israel but we do not support illegal settlements and we do not support what is happening in east Jerusalem. It is very important for this capital city to be maintained as it was in the past.”
Now what shocked him was, of course, not seeing slums or the destruction of Arab property by the cruel Israelis but the new buildings built and lived in by Jews for themselves, whose Israeli government has never accepted that the division between an Arab east and a Jewish west Jerusalem is the way things were supposed to be. In calling the eastern side of the city “occupied,” Cameron used this code word for the belief that what was in 1948 wholly in Muslim hands, which included the Jews’ Temple Mount, is Muslim property that the Jews have occupied illegally since 1967. It was Cameron de facto declaring the east side to be Muslim property, not Jewish.
This idea that a part of Jerusalem is occupied, meaning in the hands of others than its legitimate owner, is of course an antisemitic lie. Jew-hatred in every generation is characterized by telling lies about the alleged evil that Jews commit, and in our time one whopper is that Israel’s presence in Judea and Samaria and the Jewish communities built there since 1967 are illegal.
Now David Cameron is, I believe, as he says, a friend of Israel. I do not believe he is an antisemite. He is too intelligent, educated and sophisticated to harbor in his mind the hallucinations about Jews that are the stuff of an antisemite’s fantasy life. But he nonetheless has uncritically adopted and assimilated, as most people have, this antisemitic lie.
He is a friend of Israel, I believe, but also, in his defense, his prime duty in life is prime minister and that is greater than his friendship for Israel. He, first of all, must defend the British people as best he can, and it would be reckless to speak other than he does. If Cameron had answered the Muslim provocateur by saying that he saw nothing wrong with Jews building, developing and living in the former Jordanian sector, he would endanger his people, the British. If he said the settlements are legal, that too could ignite a terrible chain of events.
A British prime minister who takes Israel’s side in these matters would be playing with the fire of potential civil unrest, with riots all over the U.K. in every Muslim community whose rioters would be enraged Believers in the One True Faith capable of violence that could dwarf the massacre in Paris last November tenfold.
When Cameron said Jerusalem should be “maintained as it was in the past,” his intent was pre-1967 when the Temple Mount and the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives were wholly in Muslim hands as they had been since 1948. In those two decades, the Jews were prevented from praying at their holiest site, the Western Wall; in those years, the sovereign in Jerusalem was King Hussein of Jordan, a direct descendant of the Prophet, whose grandfather Abdallah had in 1948, without any sanction from the United Nations, invaded westward across the Jordan River to overrun and ethnically cleanse Jerusalem of its Jewish community. And then in 1950, he annexed the Holy City and Judea and Samaria.
That is the past to which David Cameron wants to return, which should be no surprise.
The only two states in the world to accept Jordan’s presence in Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria were the U.K. and another state the U.K. had created, as it had created Jordan: Pakistan. Between 1948 and 1967, the U.K. was perfectly comfortable with a Judenrein/Jewfree “West Bank.” In this way, Prime Minister Cameron’s policy has been British policy from the beginning. Britain was content to see all Jews driven from Jerusalem, deprived as well of access to the Cave of the Patriarchs and Matriarchs in Hebron, the “family plot” of the Jewish people. Indeed, it was a British General John Glubb, seconded in 1948 to the Arab Legion a.k.a. Jordanian Army, who led the conquest of Jerusalem and presided over the expulsion of the Jewish community, all of whose immovable property, of course, was plundered by the Arabs.
So I defend David Cameron, loyal son of the U.K. More than he supports Israel, he is the captain of the British ship of state, steward of Her Majesty’s Government who dare not deviate from these policies regarding Israel’s presence on the land Israel liberated from the Muslims. To do that would risk igniting the savage breasts of these people in his country who are capable of mass, hysterical destruction and rampage.
In this way, 10 Downing Street has become a zone of ‘dhimmitude’. That is Bat Ye’or’s invented word referring to a state of kowtowing to Islam by its subject peoples. Here is the prime minister of England fearful of offending Muslims for they are capable of satanic violence as we saw in Paris and in German cities last New Year’s Eve when thousands of Muslim barbarians went around molesting, robbing and raping European females.
David Cameron and the great bulk of humanity see in Israel’s presence in Judea, birthplace of the very word Jew,” an “occupation” that needs to end.
But, ironically, it is David Cameron’s England that is “occupied territory” these days, where the Muslims are slowly bringing the once great British Empire to its knees.
Yes, I think Israel should be a light to the nations in the civilized nations’ war of self-defense before the Muslim hordes.
One of the necessary steps must include confronting head-on any political correctness when it comes to Islam and to the phantom nation of Balestinians. The sky will not fall if the government of Israel says there is no such people and the claim to our land associated with this “Phantom Nation” is bogus.
Israel must also speak the truth about Islam to educate and bolster allies in the West. Political correctness poses the barrier to that mission Israel should embark on. Islam must be legally outlawed in what’s left of the liberal democracies for no other reason than it is a polygamous culture, which may represent the ultimate divide between Islam and the Judeo-Christian West. The Arab’s sex lives are very different and one piece of evidence for that is the behavior on display on New Year’s Eve in Cologne and other German cities. It seems to have been some of kind living nightmare.
And I ask, what other culture produces such behavior? The treatment of women in Islamic societies is light years different from the treatment of women in the West.
There is no tradition of liberal democracy, national self-rule in Islam that is fair and beneficial for the people as a whole.
In a nutshell, the West has to stiffen its backbone and speak the truth that Muslims are so different, the two communities cannot live together peacefully. I don’t want Muslims in my neighborhood murdering a teenage daughter on suspicion of immodest behavior. I don’t want neighbors like that.
I am also a dog lover and I have heard of cases in Muslim communities in the States where Muslims have threatened Americans they see walking their beloved dog.
The West has to stop being nice and speak the truth that Islam is unwanted in the West until it adopts Western values of tolerance, respect for women, respect for dogs, respect for others’ religious beliefs as their own business.
Israel domestically has to be shamelessly clear about the line dividing disagreement over how to handle the Arabs and collaborating with them in the name of freedom of speech. PMW (Palestine Media Watch) last week reported on an upcoming speech to be delivered at Hebrew U. by an advisor to Arafat who has said in the past “Jews are evil and spread falsehoods. Israel is Satan’s project”, he has said. He, like the majority of Arabs, glorifies the martyrdom operations. I ask, what does Hebrew U. think it is doing by giving this antisemitic crackpot a place to speak on campus?
In this regard, kudos to MK Nava Boker of the Likud Party who wrote to Minister of the Interior Aryeh Deri to cancel the right of Omar Barghouti, a native of Qatar who married an Arab woman with Israeli citizenship and on that basis he lives here, dividing his time between Jaffa’s Arab community and the one in Acre. He is a founder of the BDS movement who shamelessly wants Israel destroyed. He wants one state from the river to the sea in which the Jews will be the minority and thus returned to the ‘dhimmitude’ they lived under for 14 centuries. This character was scheduled speak in Nazareth this week, and MK Nava Boker wants him out of the country.
Of course. And, of course, the Enlightened worldwide would protest this violation of his legal rights to live in occupied Balestine, which is another reason Israel has to confront head-on the lie of a Balestinian beople with the right to independence in the middle of our G-d given country.
OK, that’s it for this first night of the week. Let’s hope it’s a better week than the last. Until Tuesday. Leila Tov from Eretz Yehuda.

About the Author Sha’i ben-Tekoa is the author of
“Phantom Nation: Inventing the ‘Palestinians’ as the Obstacle to Peace”available at Amazon.com on Kindle or 3 Volume Paperback. Check out the reviews on Amazon.com Book Description: Publication Date: January 4, 2014
If you are a supporter of Israel, “Phantom Nation” is a must-read book. If you support the putatively Paleolithic “Palestinians,” you had better read this book. Sha’i ben-Tekoa skewers the myth of a “Palestinian” nation with rights to land the League of Nations specifically recognized as Jewish. The author, hired for a research project by the Office of Israel’s Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir discovered the first mention ever in a United Nations resolution of “Palestinians” in the year 1970, three years after Israel conquered Judea and Samaria,a.k.a. the “West Bank.” The author also shows how this very no-name of a name, “West Bank,” had to be invented for hills the Arabs never had a name for. Hence, the sterile, topographical description lacking all historical associations, which exposes the fraud that is the “Palestinian” counter-claim to land the League said was Jewish. Before 1959, when Gamal Nasser of Egypt conjured up the idea of a phantom “Palestinian” nation, the record of Holy Land history is perfectly empty of any mention of them. After Ben-Tekoa’s government assignment ended, he went in search of the full story surrounding the birth of this allegedly archaic community, and the story he tells covers the entire sweep of Zionist and Israeli history, its wars and waves of Arab and Muslim massacres (terrorism) and the birth of this notional nation a Biblical generation of forty years after the League of Nations’ decision. He likens the rise of “Palestinian Nationalism” to Holocaust Denial as a twin perversion of history; as our generation’s successor ideology to medieval Christianity and Nazism as forms of homicidal anti-Semitism. It is our time’s way of justifying the mass murder of Jews. “Phantom Nation” is also a crackling, riveting, great read.
Review From Outpost, April, 2015, by Ruth King, Board of Directors, AFSI: Americans for a Safe Israel “…When Shai Ben-Tekoa was doing research for the Office of Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir on the United Nations bias against Israel, he discovered that in the period of The League of Nations (1919-1945) and in United Nations Resolutions from 1945 until 1969 there was not a single reference to the Arabs as “the people of Palestine.” That term had its debut in Resolution 2535 in 1969. One year later, UN Resolution 2628 referenced the Arabs as “the Palestinian people” inventing a national identity which everyone has been parroting ever since. These facts inspired ben-Tekoa to write his meticulously researched and detailed three-volume work Phantom Nation: Inventing the “Palestinians” as the Obstacle to Peace. These volumes are packed with more information that any single book on the history of Israel. Ben-Tekoa chronicles it all–from the early pre-state Zionists, to the rebirth of the Jewish state, through the endless wars & terrorism, to the present Holocaust denial & international anti-Semitism.
Furthermore, Ben Tekoa understands the role that the Koran and Islam have played in the Muslim/Arab war against Israel. Israel stands in the way of Muslim dreams of a Caliphate with Sharia law throughout the Middle East. In this respect he goes beyond some of the best books on the conflict, including the late Irish politician Conor Cruise O’Brien’s The Siege and Samuel Katz’s Battleground. The blood curdling anti-Jewish fulminations of Iran are a call for a final jihad against Israel. Bat Ye’or in her many books & articles detailed the Islamic origins of anti-Israel hatred as did the late Saul Friedman in his splendid Land of Dust.
I highly recommend Ben Tekoa’s work. Phantom Nation belongs in homes, libraries, and should be studied by all Israel support organizations. From Ruth King
