By now you’ve no doubt heard of the Fogel family, murdered by Palestinians who then threw a huge celebration. Or maybe you haven’t heard as main stream media reports have been tepid, with only bloggers and Fox giving full reports on this terrible story – the story of a three-month old baby beheaded.
On Friday night, twelve-year old Tamar Fogel came home to find both her parents, Ruth and Udi Fogel, two brothers Yoav (11) and Elad (four), and her three-month old sister Hadas murdered in their beds. They had had their throats cut and been stabbed through the heart.
That’s not shocking: There is no shortage of young Muslim men who would enjoy slitting the throat of a three-month old baby, and then head home dreaming of the town square or soccer tournament to be named in their honor.
Back in Gaza, the citizenry celebrated the news by cheering and passing out sweets.
That’s not shocking, either: In the broader Palestinian death cult, there are untold legions who, while disinclined to murder Jews themselves, are content to revel in the glorious victory of others.
And out in the wider world there was a marked reluctance to cover the story.
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. The Israeli Government released raw footage from the murders, but YouTube yanked the video within two hours. The hip new “social media” are developing almost as exquisitely refined a sense of discretion as the old Social Register.
If you are puzzled about little baby Hadas being beheaded. Read Mark’s column (linked above) for an eye-witness account. See also links to the Palestinian street celebration which included candy for everyone.
CNN reported the story with quotation marks around ‘terror attacks,’ apparently question the fact that the murders are “terror,” or more clearly put, Islamic jihad. The New York Times gave only the barest details. A question for Democrats: How do you accept what your media silences? Really. How can you abide it? How can you allow your press to ignore this video?
