Yesterday William Jacobson asked, "What kind of person stabs a three-month old infant to death?" And he posted what looks like a newborn picture of perfect little Hadas Fogel:
She was a lovely little thing. Her parents and two of her siblings were also butchered, but two others were overlooked by the monsters, and the eldest child, 12 year-old Tamar, was not home at the time of the attack. She returned later to discover the carnage.
I can't conceive of the kind of hate that could do this, but I know it's real.
And out in the wider world there was a marked reluctance to cover the story.Read the rest.
And, if not exactly shocking, that was a useful reminder of how things have changed even in a few years. On 9/11, footage of Palestinians dancing in the streets and handing out candy turned up on the world’s TV screens, and that rancid old queen Arafat immediately went into damage-control mode and hastily arranged for himself to be filmed giving blood. This time round there was no need for damage-control, because there was no damage: The western media simply averted their eyes from their Palestinian house pets’ unfortunate effusions.
Mark links to Claire Berlinski, Writing in Cold Blood about Itamar. Dear God in heaven, the murder of Hadas was more awful than initially reported:
A detail that wasn't widely reported, or reported anywhere that I've seen, is that their newborn baby was decapitated.If you need proof that evil exists, there it is.
