As the Palestinians make their bid at the UN for statehood—in fact, just another tactic to destroy Israel—we should never lose sight of the fact that the foundation of Palestinian nationalism is Jew-hatred on the part of genocidal yearning Muslims.
And this Palestinian nationalism is most clearly embodied in the terrorists who gleefully slaughtered five members of the Fogel family.
Giulio Meotti, an Italian journalist with Il Foglio, is the author of one of the most moving and important books Seraphic Secret has read in many years, A New Shoah: The Untold Story of Israel’s Victims of Terrorism.
Here, Meotti comes face to face with pure evil:
Last week, an Israeli court sentenced Hakim Awad to five life sentences for the murder of five members of the Fogel family in Itamar. Ruth Fogel was in the bathroom when Awad killed her husband Udi and their three-month-old daughter Hadas, slitting their throats as they lay in bed. Awad slaughtered Ruth as she came out of the bathroom. Then he moved into a bedroom where Ruth and Udi’s sons Yoav (11) and Elad (4) were sleeping. He then slit their throats.
In court, Awad always smiled at the camera, just like Atta did. Awad said he has “no regrets” and flashed the “V” sign for victory while he was leaving the courthouse. “I am a person like you, I have no mental condition, I never had a serious illness,” Awad said to the judges. His smile was sincere.
