IDF Corporal Levin and Palestinian baby, Jude -->

in His celestial heights,
may He create peace
for us and for all Israel;
and say, Amen.") -->


Mother's day:
Malevolence and beneficence

Here is how the blogger, "Angry Arab" sneered at Mother's day celebration in Israel:

Comrade Riyad sent me this: "As a civilized nation, with a deep and abiding commitment to human rights and dignity, the government of Israel is pleased to announce that it will not kill, torture or otherwise abuse any Palestinian children on Mother's day, March 21. The usual torture and killing will promptly resume on March 22, at 12 AM. Happy Mother's day to all."

Why would I even note this calumny?

Here is why:

IDF forces and local paramedics helped save the life of a Palestinian woman and her newly born infant Wednesday, at the settlement where Fogel relatives are sitting Shiva for the five Israelis brutally murdered last week.

Just as IDF Chief of Staff Benny Gantz arrived in Neve Tzuf to offer his condolences, a Palestinian cab raced towards the community's entrance. In it, soldiers and paramedics discovered a Palestinian woman in her 20s in advanced stages of labor and facing a life-threatening situation: The umbilical cord was wrapped around the young baby girl's neck, endangering both her and her mother.

The quick action of settler paramedics and IDF troops deployed in the area saved the mother's and baby's life, prompting great excitement and emotions at the site where residents are still mourning the brutal death of five local family members.


Update: I forgot about this precedent

I see that during my absence our Pissed Cousin took over a lot of room in your heart. I guess I am jealous, that at my advanced age...
