Father’s Day in the US is a nice holiday. While it is a chance for children to express their appreciation for their fathers, in the end, the greatest gift is the joy and pride of seeing a child’s accomplishments.
With that in mind, consider the comments of some Palestinian Arabs about their children who murder Israelis.
- The father of Baha Alyan who killed three Israelis who were riding a public bus in October 2015 said on Palestinian Authority TV “I’m proud of what he did.”
- The father of Murad Bader Abdullah Adais,16, who stabbed Dafna Meir to death while she was at home in January 2016, said “I am proud of him.“
- The father of Ashraqat Qatnani,16, who attempted to stab a Jewish teenager in November 2015 said “My daughter left home this morning to go to school, like she does every day. Instead, she went to go attack [Jews] and fulfill her national and moral duty. I’m proud of her.“
- The father of Salam Zaghal, 21, who stabbed Jew who was waiting for a bus to death said “It was destiny, and we take pride in him as a family. What he did is a duty for all Palestinians living with the aggression of the army and settlers.“
- The father of Anas Jaradat, who carried out three bombings in Israel killing 35 during the Second Intifada, called his son “a real hero.“
- The father of Abdullah Barghouti, a bomb-maker that killed 67 Israelis said “I am proud of him and I say: Praise Allah who gave me this hero.“
Sometimes the terrorists have children of their own. That gives the children an opportunity to express their love for their fathers.
- The daughter of Abdullah Barghouti wrote to her father “You have given this people an honor that amounts to the number of years to which you were sentenced.”
- The daughter of Abu Sneine, who was involved in the killing of two Israelis said “We’re very happy and proud of our father.“
Another generation celebrating murder.
In Israel, many fathers use Father’s Day to remember their children that were victims of Palestinian Arab terrorism. That is true in the United States as well.
The daughter of Senator Robert Kennedy spoke about her father’s assassination on June 5, 1968, a year after the Six Day War. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend spoke to Israeli news about her father’s support for Israel as being the motivation of Palestinian terrorist Sirhan Sirhan killing him.
“He [RFK] wrote about the courage of the Israelis and how they were determined to build a new country, and that they would build this country, and that they had seen such horror in Europe, and that they would build a country of courage, of democracy, of values, and that he realized when he saw the Israelis that the United States had a special relationship with this country and needed to make sure that that relationship stayed firm. And as you know in 1968 he was fighting for the 50 jets that would be given to the Israeli army and he was killed because of his support.”
On this Father’s Day, do not only consider why you are proud of your father and/or your children. Ponder the Palestinian pride of the slaughter of Jews.
