As always, Professor Paul Eidelberg, a true Renaissance man, asks the most penetrating/searing questions. A fellow traveler, Dr. Arieh Eldad, more than understands the psyche of Islamic adherents from both a medical/surgical perspective, as well as from having been a previous member of Israel’s Parliament. In addition, he reached the rank of Brigadier General in Israel’s Defense Forces. NOT too shabby.
So, along comes the valiant prof with the following question, one which should be obvious to anyone who claims to be civilized. YET, this is as far removed from reality as dancing pigs. Alas, the west’s poohbahs beg to differ with said basic moral construct.
Prof Paul Eidelberg queries: How is one to deal with Arabs who reject this fundamental principle of ethics, DO NOT REPAY GOOD WITH EVIL, a principle rejected by Arabs, as this article by Dr. Arieh Eldad (a former MK in Israel’s Parliament) clearly illustrates?
This skin bank is hosted at the Hadassah Ein Kerem University hospital in Jerusalem where I was the Chairman of plastic surgery. This is how I was asked to supply skin for an Arab woman from Gaza , who was hospitalized in Soroka Hospital in Beersheva, after her family burned her. Usually, such atrocities happen among Arab families when the women are suspected of having an affair.
We supplied all the needed Homografts for her treatment. She was successfully treated by my friend and colleague, Prof. Lior Rosenberg and discharged to return to Gaza. She was invited for regular follow-up visits to the outpatient clinic in Beersheva.
One day she was caught at a border crossing wearing a suicide belt. She meant to explode herself in the outpatient clinic of the hospital where they saved her life. It seems that her family promised her that if she did that, they would forgive her.
This is only one example of the war between Jews and Muslims in the Land of Israel. It is not a territorial conflict. This is a civilizational conflict, or rather a war between civilization and barbarism.
Prof Paul Eidelberg expounds further:
If Bibi understands this, he will also understand that it would be futile and disingenuous, and even misleading and self-destructive, to speak of “reciprocity” between Israel and her Arab enemies?
The rhetoric of “reciprocity” may please Americans, but it also disarms Jews who should be most wary about the wickedness of their enemies, who scorn the ethical principle of not repaying good with evil.
Most significantly, there is something inherently insane about hunting down Nazis, decades after the Holocaust, yet embracing Israel’s Arab Nazi ‘peace’ partner – having written his dissertation on Holocaust denial – as he exhorts: their putative state will be Judenrein ! Still, Israel’s leaders and NO western leader – even in Washington, supposedly its ‘BFF’ – bats an eye, at least long enough to stop the ‘peace’ process in its tracks ! Why the cognitive dissonance, especially by Israel’s leaders? Emblematic of said irrational behavior/discourse, Israel’s leaders haven’t skipped a (‘peace’) beat, even as the region – due to Islamic barbarism – threatens to engulf us all! Moreover, imagine what would happen if Israel’s top leadership similarly opined: Israel must be Arab-free too! Talk about an instantaneous, worldwide backlash. Blasted hypocrites.
Essentially, at its core, what is posited above is demonstrative of the findings within Islam & Blood; a beyond weighty policy paper authored by – you guessed it – Prof Paul Eidelberg, and with the humble assistance of this blogger.
Tragically, Israel is the most imperiled nation in history, and no amount of appeasement and debasement by its leaders will change the calculus, despite their delusions. Besides, to call oneself a patriot demands one step up and tell the truth, regardless of the consequences – the blow back.
Good vs evil. Light vs. darkness…as western civilization finds itself in the cross hairs of Islam and in threat of being devoured by it!
