PA Arabs, Jews Join Forces; Call to Obama to ‘Leave Us in Peace’

Posted by Glezele Vayne on October 11, 2010

BS”D

The local people have always been better able to get along with one another than their leaders will allow. I also remember the days when the Jews and Arabs of E”Y got along very well. The flames of intolerance are fanned by greedy government elitists who have their own agendas…and it doesn’t involve peace or prosperity for the little guy…despite the propaganda. — Ellie Katz

by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Palestinian Authority Arabs and Jews in Samaria worked together Monday to fight a fire that threatened to wreak irreparable damage at the site of the Biblical era temple at Shiloh.

The presence of Arabs, who risk their lives by even working for Jewish employers despite new Palestinian Authority legislation outlawing the practice, demonstrated the ability of both Jews and Arab to join forces, Shiloh residents said. Among similar joint efforts in the past year, Arabs helped save Jews in eastern Gush Etzion after their vehicle caught on fire. Click here to continue reading….

Experts: Israel’s Cyber-Defense Can Stop Stuxnet Worm

Posted by Glezele Vayne on October 4, 2010

This just keeps getting better everyday. — Ellie Katz

by David Lev

There are tens of thousands of attempted virus attacks on Israeli systems each week – but Israel is “well-equipped” to fend off an onslaught of computer viruses, such as the one that has plagued Iran in recent months, experts say.

Iran has been struggling to control a virulently destructive, surprisingly agile computer virus known as Stuxnet, which has invaded – and hijacked – over 30,000 computers in Iran. Unlike standard viruses, Stuxnet is especially destructive, as it attempts to take control of a computer’s programmable logic controller (PLC), which runs supervisory control and data acquisition software (SCADA) of machinery and industrial systems, like the ones that control manufacturing, energy production, and other critical infrastructure.

Bushehr Technician

Stuxnet is seen as especially sophisticated, as well, because the PLCs it attacks – it seems to favor systems made by Germany’s Siemens, which, by coincidence, are heavily used in Iran – are based on obtuse programming language, not on Windows or Linux, like most viruses. And, according to security experts, Stuxnet has the ability to hide its tracks – erasing traces of its activity recorded in computer logging systems – making detection all the more difficult.

Coding of Virus Attacking Iran May Refer to Queen Esther

Posted by Glezele Vayne on October 3, 2010

BS”D

By Maayana Miskin

Iranian Intelligence Minister Heider Moslehi said Sunday that his country is under cyber attack, and blamed the United States and Israel. Iranian officials initially admitted that their country had been hit by the Stuxnet computer virus, but insisted that the damage was minimal.

Iran has been forced to push back the opening of the nuclear plant in Bushehr. Senior Information and Technology official Hamid Alipour admitted that while Iranian officials had hoped to clean up the virus in under two months, that hope had been proven unrealistic. “The virus is not stable, and since we started the cleanup process, three new versions have been spreading,” he said.

Stuxnet hit Iran much harder than any other nation, affecting an estimated 62,000 systems. A total of 100,000 computers are thought to have been hit with the virus worldwide. The virus was made to target software created by the German company Siemens; Iran relies heavily on Siemens systems.

Israel has been among the top suspects in the creation of the Stuxnet worm, due both to Israeli opposition to Iran’s unsupervised nuclear program, and to the complexity of the virus, which experts say could only have been created by a team with significant funding, resources and expertise.

Secret is Out: Pro-PA Billionaire George Soros Funds J Street

Posted by Glezele Vayne on September 26, 2010

BS”D

I would have titled this article, “It’s Official: Pro-PA Billionaire George Soros Funds J Street” had anyone asked me. They didn’t. If this was a secret, it was one of the worst kept secrets in known history.. …. Ellie Katz.

By Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu

Pro-Palestinian Authority billionaire George Soros, who once said Israeli and American policies fuel anti-Semitism, helps fund the J Street lobby that is sympathetic to Hamas, The Washington Times revealed Saturday. Soros never was a supporter of  Zionist activities, and a biography of him states that Judaism “did not express itself in a sense of tribal loyalty that would have led him to support Israel.”

He has long been rumored to be behind the left-wing political lobby, but J Street previously denied that he contributed money to the group until now.

“George Soros very publicly stated his decision not to be engaged in J Street when it was launched — precisely out of fear that his involvement would be used against the organization,” the J Street website stated before The Times questioned it about Soros. The site immediately was changed to read, “J Street has said it doesn’t receive money from George Soros, but now news reports indicate that he has in fact contributed.”

Times’ reporter Eli Lake said that the newspaper obtained tax forms revealing that Soros and his two children gave J Street nearly a quarter of a million dollars.

Soros originally helped found J Street as an alternative lobby to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), whose pro-Israel polices angered him. He contributed heavily in an attempt to defeat President Bush when he ran for re-election in 2004, telling The New York Times that getting rid of Bush was  the “central focus of my life” and “a matter of life and death.”

Arab Women: Harassed and Hurt

Posted by Glezele Vayne on September 22, 2010

BS”D

by Dr. Phyllis Chesler

Arab women are being subjugated by the hijab. Obediently wearing the Islamic Veil does not protect Muslim women from being raped and beaten within their own families, harassed on the streets, sold into sexual slavery.

In Palestine, more specifically, in Gaza, the territory that is currently most adored by western artists, “free” thinkers, and flotilla “activists,” any woman who refuse to wear hijab, the headscarf, faces new punishments.

In the fall of 2010, Asmaa al-Ghoul, a Palestinian journalist whom I interviewed here, and who has written about honor killings among Palestinians, was literally arrested for not wearing hijab and for wearing jeans; perhaps she was also arrested due to her work which exposed honor killings. In any event, Asmaa now writes that a friend who “refuses to wear the hijab has not been allowed to graduate from university.”

It is not clear whether Asmaa is writing about the Islamic University of Gaza, about al-Azhar University in Cairo or about both universities.

In any event, in the past, women in Gaza, and for that matter, in Egypt, wore modern and western dress. Arab feminists fought for and won the right to be naked-faced, to feel the sun on their cheeks. With the rise of Khomeini in Iran, the Taliban in Afghanistan and Pakistan, coupled with the increasing influence of both Khomeiniism and Saudi Wahhabism, worldwide, especially on Hamas in Gaza and Hezbollah in Lebanon, freedom for women ended.

Asmaa writes: “In Gaza, you will come across repressive rules, hurtful comments, stupid words and contemptuous looks, and scorn for the women not wearing hijab. In the small world of Gaza, we need someone to defend the rights of women who don’t wear hijab, or the jilbab, or the niqab. It’s a system that establishes the idea that women should be treated as bodies.”

Asmaa goes on to explain that, in Gaza, Christian Arabs are required to wear hijab as well as Muslim Arabs.

Although the head of Al-Azhar University recently snatched the niqab from a girl’s face and said that face-covering is not religiously required by Islam—Asmaa decries the fact that the university still demands that female students wear the hijab, headscarf, if they are to graduate. And, they must take their official photo wearing hijab, not bare-headed, even if they are bare-headed in their daily lives.

Journalist Reveals The PA’s ‘Palestine Plot’

Posted by Glezele Vayne on September 21, 2010

BS”D

by David Lev

“There’s a method to PA chief Mahmoud Abbas’ ongoing refusal to negotiate seriously with Israel”, journalist Uri Elitzur told Israelnationalnews in an interview – “and unfortunately, his plan has a relatively good plan of succeeding”.

Elitzur laid out the plot in the weekend edition of Hebrew newspaper Mekor Rishon, of which he is one of the editors, last Friday. “The PA’s insistence that it will walk out of the talks if Israel ends the building freeze in Judea and Samaria” he says, “is a political gambit for something Abbas and company are far more interested in: An Israeli agreement on the borders of a Palestinian state before resolving other sensitive issues, such as security, Jerusalem, and PA demands that descendants of Arabs who abandoned Israel in 1948 be allowed to return to their former homes”.

“The strategy is apparent to anyone who bothers to look”, Elitzur says. “Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu knows that the talks are a game, Abbas knows the talks are a game, and both are playing well.” The game, in this case, is to pass the blame for failure of the talks to the other party. U.S. President Barack Obama knows it’s a game, too, Elitzur says – and he also knows how far he can push Israel. “Obama knows that an American president is not a Caesar who can do whatever he wants, and there is a limit to the pressure the White House can impose on Israel.” Given that both Israel and the PA have so many red lines that they dare not cross, the talks were doomed to fail, even before they started, Elitzur says.

So why bother? “Behind this endless game lies an important consideration: What happens the day after the talks fail? What is the alternative plan?” Unlike Israel, Elitzur says, the PA has such a plan: To back Israel into a corner and get Netanyahu to agree to a “shelf agreement” – meaning that most of the impassable issues would be put “on the shelf” for the time being, while the one issue that the PA really wants to see resolved – the borders of the Palestinian state – are decided right now. Tsipi Livni actually agreed to this when she was Prime Minister, Elitzur says.

If the borders between Israel and Palestine are delineated, Elitzur says, the PA can declare an official Palestinian state – one that has a reasonable chance of being accepted by the rest of the world. Contrary to popular thinking, the PA would not be able to get away with declaring a state unilaterally – not after they signed agreement after agreement that specifies negotiations as the only legitimate path to a PA state.

Arabs Harass Female ‘Peace’ Activists; Left Silences Victims

Posted by Glezele Vayne on September 21, 2010

BS”D

Note: Well this clears up a mystery to me. When examining photos of western women surrounded by Arab villagers, I always wondered how those Arab men would deal with the “liberated” female activists among them. — Ellie Katz

Two activists have exposed a disturbing phenomenon that they say is an open secret within the “peace camp”: female “peace” activists are routinely harassed and raped by the Arabs of Judea and Samaria with whom they have come to identify. They say the phenomenon has gotten worse lately and that many foreign women end up as wives of local Arabs against their will, but cannot escape their new homes.

Roni Aloni Sedovnik, a feminist activist, penned an article in News1 – an independent website run by respected investigative reporter Yoav Yitzchak – under the heading “The Left’s Betrayal of Female Peace Activists Who were Sexually Assaulted.”

“A nauseous atrocity has been going on for a long time behind the scenes at the leftists’ demonstration at Bil’in, Naalin and Sheikh Jarrah [Shimon HaTzaddik],” she writes. “A dark secret that threatens to smash the basic ideological values upon which the demand to end the occupation of the Territories rests.”

It turns out, she explains, that when female peace activists from Israel and abroad come out to Judea and Samaria and demonstrate against the Israeli “occupation,” they are assaulted sexually by the Arab men whom they have come to help. These are not isolated incidents, Aloni-Sedovnik stresses. Rather, this is an “ongoing and widespread” phenomenon that includes verbal and physical abuse. She accuses the ‘peace’ camp of purposely covering up the trend so as not to offend “the Palestinians and their heritage, which sees women as sexual objects.”

Media cover-up

Aloni-Sedovnik cites two specific cases which she has knowledge of – one is a case of rape and another is “severe sexual harassment.” The attackers in both cases, she stresses, were familiar with the victims and knew that they were “peace activists.”

The rape occurred several months ago in the village of Umm Salmona, near Bethlehem. The victim, an American activist, wanted to press charges but leftist activists put pressure on her not to do so, so as not to damage the struggle against the ‘occupation.’

The second case involved an Israeli activist who took part in the demonstrations at Shimon HaTzaddik neighborhood in eastern Jerusalem, where the High Court ruled that Jewish families may move into homes that they have owned for generations. This woman filed a complaint with the police but retracted it after “severe and unfair pressure” from the demonstrations’ organizers, according to Aloni-Sedovnik. Furthermore, the organizers appealed to demonstrators to dress modestly when they come to the Arab neighborhoods and suggested that they wear head scarves.

Aloni-Sedovnik accuses the Israeli media of complicity in the cover-up.

“How is it that we do not hear the voice of the radical feminists who repeat, day and night, that occupation is occupation, and it does not matter if it is a nation that is doing the subjugation, or a man who is subjugating a woman.

“It appears that there is a gap between the radical-leftist feminist theory about the active resistance to the occupation of the Territories, and the stuttering self-annulment in the face of the violent conquest of women.”

The Umm Salmona case was reported in Haaretz as an attempted rape but does not seem to have made it beyond the blog pages.

Eight Year Old Jewish Boy a Threat to World Peace

We Are Infidels, but Stupid Ones

Posted by Glezele Vayne on September 7, 2010

BS”D

Ellie Katz’s note: We aren’t allowed to denigrate ourselves by saying we are stupid. That is lashon hara. However, we must do teshuvah as a nation and fight our enemies as HKB”H has commanded us.

by Paula Stern

There is an anger, so deep and vast, that it can choke you. It comes and goes without much warning, much like the terror attacks that cause its rebirth. It is a feeling of confusion, of wonder. How, you want to cry out. How can you be so stupid? How can you be so blind? How could you think this was anything but inevitable? Why? Why didn’t you think? Why didn’t you do something to stop it? 
 
You can’t say you didn’t know. It’s happened so often, each time, really. The inevitable outcome of all attempted “peace” negotiations is death. Harsh though that sounds, that is reality. If you offer a hand to the Palestinians, there will be much conversation and discussion among the Arabs. Stupidly, the world, the western world, the United States, the State Department, even our out stupid, stupid leaders, will think the Arabs are discussing our latest offerings and the talks that will take place.
 
The politicians will dream of peace and international fame for themselves. They will imagine the spotlights shining as the world deems them the ultimate peacemakers. They will dream of Nobel Prizes and going down in the history books. It’s true. So stupid. So naïve.
 
Yes, the Arabs are discussing something, but the world is too blind, too ignorant to understand or accept that what the Arabs ARE discussing, what they are planning – is how to cut off that hand that the world demands we reach out.
 
That hand offered in peace is an abomination to their culture. It is the hand of an infidel, they will whisper among themselves. Easily ignored, even laughed at. How stupid these infidels are, let us offer them the peace of Mohammed, the Arabs snicker among themselves. We can agree to anything. There is no dishonor in betraying a hand offered to an infidel, an agreement made with these non-Muslim leaders.
 
The greater the lie, the more impressive, the more powerful the deception, they believe, the more manly is the Arab leader that pulled off the ruse. That conned the infidel into making the deal. How much sweeter the deal, how much weaker the opponent, when you can get them to offer something for nothing but words. Stupid infidels.
 
There is an anger that burns inside me that so many of my own people refuse to understand this; that many say we settlers are the cause. The Arabs have murdered a pregnant woman. Shot her as she drove with her husband, and then again in the head to crown their victory. The agony incapacitates; the pain overwhelms and so the world rationalizes. Wait, it’s bad, but wait, she lived where? She makes her home over there? Ah, six children she had…she must have been one of those. Religious. Right-wing. Settler. Labels meant to separate when the only really important label here is the one the Arabs have given us. She was murdered because she was an infidel, like you, like me. Like so many of us.
 
We settlers can ask a simple question, a most logical one – if it is the SETTLERS that stopped peace from happening, why was there no peace in 1966 before there were any settlers or settlements? Why did we not all bask in the sunshine of peace and humanity in 1949 when the Arabs had more land than they are supposedly willing to settle for now? The answer, of course, is so obvious. We are all settlers – each and every one of us Israelis. We settled Tel Aviv as much as we settled Har Bracha and Beit Haggai. This week, it was two parents from Beit Haggai; next week, it could as easily be parents from Netanya. Why can’t you understand that in this battle, we are all settlers, all infidels?

Netanyahu’s Treachery and Self-Incrimination

Posted by Glezele Vayne on August 31, 2010

BS”D

By Dr. Paul Eidelberg

 On August 31, 2010, at 8:12 PM Israeli time, it was reported that a passing vehicle fired on an Israeli car, killing 2 men and 2 women (one pregnant) on Route 60 in the Hebron Hills near the ancient holy Jewish city of Hebron.  Nevertheless, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu persists in meeting with Mahmoud Abbas, the leader of these murderers, in Washington, D.C.  The  murderous charade goes on.

Mr. Netanyahu boasted on various occasions after the May 1996 elections that that no one expected him to (1) accept the Oslo Accords as a basis for the “peace process”; meet with Yasser Arafat; and (3) withdraw from Hebron.  Ponder the significance of this remarkable statement or confession.  This self-incriminating statement reveals his autocratic as well as arrogant character.  For if no one, in his own words, expected him to take the three steps mentioned above, it then follows that Mt. Netanyahu betrayed those who elected him Israel’s Prime Minister!

 That he could boast before the nation about his utterly unexpected adherence to the Oslo Accords reveals his contempt for public opinion.  The moral obtuseness underlying his arrogant statement that no one expected him to genuflect to Oslo—hence, to become Yasser Arafat’s lackey—is symptomatic of Israel’s undemocratic political culture.

But what is more, Mr Netanyahu pulled the same sort political deception in the February 2009 election.  During the campaign for that election he said nothing about his stand on the “two state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict; in other words, he was mum about his position regarding a Palestinian state.  He knew very well that had he candidly supported Palestinian statehood, he would lose a decisively significant percentage of votes from the nationalist camp.  (Bear in mind that his Likud Party won 27 seats to Kadima’s 28.)

It is in this light that we are to understand his momentous speech of June 14, 2009 at Bar-Ilan University, where, without prior cabinet or Knesset debate or public discussion, he unilaterally supported the establishment of a Palestinian state on Israel’s heartland, Judea and Samaria.  That he again displayed contempt for public opinion was confirmed by a poll commissioned by IMRA (Independent Media Review and Analysis) in August 2009.

 The poll found strong disagreement to Netanyahu’s recent decisions among those who voted for Netanyahu’s Likud party in the most recent election. Seventy percent of Likud voters said they opposed plans to freeze Jewish construction in Judea, Samaria and parts of Jerusalem, while 73 percent said the government should grant authorization to so-called “illegal outposts” instead of seeking to demolish them. This clearly implies that the public overwhelming opposes a Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria,

 Pollsters also discovered that despite overwhelming media criticism of Minister Moshe Yaalon, who termed the Peace Now group “a virus,” the public tends to agree with Yaalon’s remarks. Fifty-eight percent of those surveyed expressed agreement with Yaalon, and said that Peace Now has caused significant damage to the state of Israel.  Only 28 percent of those surveyed did not agree that Peace Now has harmed the state.

Returning to Netanyahu, he is a disgrace to the nation, and there are no constitutional means of removing him from office.  This is the humiliating consequence of living in the pseudo-democratic state of Israel, whose ruling elites—across the political spectrum—have a vested interest in leaving in its present form despite its demonstrable ineptitude and corruption.

From Israel National News

by Gil Ronen and Hillel Fendel

Palestinian terrorists murdered four Jewish civilians in a shooting attack at the Bani Naim junction just south of Hevron Tuesday evening. Emergency service paramedics could do nothing to save the victims whose bodeis were riddled with bullets. The terrorists reportedly made sure their victims were dead by shooting them from close range after the initial fusillade.

The victims are a husband and wife, parents of ten, and two passengers. A Zaka volunteer who arrived on the scene broke down in tears when he neared the car and discovered that one of the victims was his wife. The IDF is combing the area, searching for the terrorists.

Why Gush Katif Still Matters

Posted by Glezele Vayne on August 17, 2010

BS”D

Opinion piece by: Moshe Dann

The expulsion of 10,000 Jews from their homes five years ago was not a localized event in the Gaza Strip and Northern Shomron. It was a national implosion, a national disgrace. It caused enormous physical, psychological, social, cultural, military and strategic damage to the entire nation – and it still does. Like an ecological disaster, its foulness still seeps through our foundations, and continues to poison us.

Undermined by enforcing a political agenda, the entire political system, the media and judicial institutions refused to act responsibly. Basic civil and human rights of Jews were abandoned. Those responsible for welfare and proper compensation misled and lied; led by SELA, the Disengagement Authority, our country was in denial.

Our own political leaders, along with many spiritual leaders – those for whom we voted, in whom we trusted – failed to organize and prevent this catastrophe. Ministers who disagreed were fired; public debate was suppressed.

The Knesset was impotent and negligent; they did not insist on proper procedures, to which all citizens are entitled; and no one was held accountable.

Our IDF, in which we and our children serve, in which we believed, were brainwashed and turned into zombies; those who refused to participate were heavily punished — a misuse of the IDF which was illegal and immoral.

The media protected Arik Sharon and those who planned, organized and carried out the pernicious plan because they agreed with his agenda. The perpetrators were even honored and promoted. Military and strategic advisers who disagreed with Sharon remained silent in order to keep their positions.

We believed that those we elected, and the institutions of government were fair and honest. We were wrong.

The expulsion and destruction of 25 Jewish communities is a symbol of national betrayal. The same toxic thinking led to the removal of Jewish communities from Sinai in 1982 and the Oslo Accords, which brought PLO terrorists to power and caused the slaughter of thousands of Jews, as well as the wounding of tens of thousands more. The product of corruption, deception, greed and arrogance, Disengagement is an example of cruel indifference and the abuse of power. We are still stuck there.

The Disengagement left a deep wound that will not heal, not only because lives and homes were destroyed, but because it was immoral, unjust and irrational. The knife of perfidy is still in our spiritual guts; it is an ongoing trauma of our neshama – not just the people who suffered physically and mentally, but a national deception. The Disengagement, Hamas and Hezbollah remind us, symbolizes not pride and victory, but our shame and defeat.

Arab Israeli Arrested for US Serial Killings

Posted by Glezele Vayne on August 13, 2010

BS”D

Ellie’s comments in italics throughout this piece:

Apparently, modern, enlightened, Western Culture as represented by our much lauded free press is sinking into the muck and sludge of medieval blood libels. Or at least, they seem to want the average modern, enlightened citizen to do so.

by Elad Benari of Israel National News

Abuelazam is an Arab Israeli citizen who is living in the US with a green card. However, most media outlets in the US who reported the story mentioned that Abuelazam is an Israeli but did not mention that he is an Arab Israeli.

An Arab Israeli has been arrested in the US on suspicion of killing five people and wounding 13 in a stabbing spree that spanned across three US states. Most of the men who were attacked were black and US police said Thursday that they believe the suspect chose victims based on the color of their skin.

Abuelazam is an Arab Israeli citizen who is living in the US with a green card. However, most media outlets in the US who reported the story mentioned that Abuelazam is an Israeli but did not mention that he is an Arab Israeli.

33 year-old Elias Abuelazam was detained late Wednesday in Atlanta while he was trying to board a flight to Tel Aviv. He was arrested at the departure gate, after being paged by a Delta Airlines representative and getting up to identify himself.

Abuelazam is an Arab Israeli citizen who is living in the US with a green card. However, most media outlets in the US who reported the story mentioned that Abuelazam is an Israeli but did not mention that he is an Arab Israeli.

Police suspect Abuelazam is behind the attacks that have taken place over the last two-and-a-half months in Michigan, Ohio and Virginia. It is alleged that his method of operation was to approach a lone man on a city street late at night, ask for directions or help with his car, and then to attack the person viciously, usually with a knife, according to a report on AFP.

Abuelazam is an Arab Israeli citizen who is living in the US with a green card. However, most media outlets in the US who reported the story mentioned that Abuelazam is an Israeli but did not mention that he is an Arab Israeli.

The first attack was in late May in Flint, Michigan, when a 31-year-old black man was stabbed. Over the next two months, 13 more men were attacked by the serial stabber in and around Flint. Five of them died. In early August, three attacks were reported in Leesburg, Virginia, and one in Toledo, Ohio.

Abuelazam is an Arab Israeli citizen who is living in the US with a green card. However, most media outlets in the US who reported the story mentioned that Abuelazam is an Israeli but did not mention that he is an Arab Israeli.

From the BBC — Israeli man held at airport over US serial stabbings

The Macomb Daily — UPDATE: Israeli citizen arrested in serial stabbings

Philly.com — Man arrested at Atlanta airport in stabbings spree

Salon.com — Man arrested at Atlanta airport in stabbings spree

Forbes.com — Man arrested at Atlanta airport in stabbings spree

I could go on and on…so many sites are reporting variations on “Israeli serial killer arrested….” Sickening. Below, this particularly sagacious observation pretty much sums things up:

“So in today’s climate, if an Arab-Israeli were to be particularly successful, he’d be a Palestinian living in Israel who succeeded. If he was being oppressed, he’d be an Arab minority being oppressed by Israel. But if he stabs somebody, he’s an Israeli.”

No bias there.”

Quoted from: Mystical Paths — Oh Those Pesky Israeli’s, Stabbing People

My opinion of Abu El Azam? He might be a sicko serial murderer.

However, given the strong record the Muslim world has of being motivated by their jihadi supremacist sentiments, as evidenced by the daily news around the world, it would not suprise me if Abu El Azam wrapped his jihadi motivations in a “serial murderer” package. America suffers regularly from the depradations of serial murders. Keep in mind, the typical serial murderer is an adult male who either preys upon children, women or both. Rarely does such a person murder other men.

This bloody slashing spree might be the beginning of a new strategy devised by various Islamist groups as a way to throw Americans off-balance in order to extend this long night of self-destructive denial regarding the true nature of their enemies.
