TV Reporter Is Off Air On Shabbos
"One of the first stories I covered in Naples was a gruesome murder," he says. "I saw body bags coming out of this apartment and I thought to myself, 'What is life all about?' Albert Einstein said either nothing's a miracle or everything's a miracle. I decided to look at life as if everything is a miracle."
The other day I was reading about how Israeli police are seeking help from the public in identifying the perpetrators of the arson attack in Duma. The New York Times described the attack in an article headlined "Jewish Arsonists Suspected in West Bank Attack That Killed Palestinian Toddler." So, the Israeli police will not do well be asking NYT journalists as to who carried out the attack because they were only able to come up with "suspected" attackers. However, J Street unequivocally knows who the attackers were as evidenced by their post titled Condemnation Is Not Enough which was published the day after the attack.
J Street condemns yesterday's terrorist attack by Jewish extremists on the Palestinian village of Duma in the West Bank, that left a Palestinian infant dead and three family members critically injured. This "price tag" attack is part of a deeply disturbing and ongoing pattern of violence, harassment and intimidation towards Palestinians, rooted in hateful and dangerous rhetoric that has spread in some corners of Israeli society.
...Then last night a group of settlers attacked a Palestinian family home in a “tag mahir” or “price tag” attack in the northern West Bank, throwing firebombs into the house, which subsequently caught fire.
When J Street condemned the murder of Malkhi Rosenfeld, the organization's statement did not include the words that the "attack is part of a deeply disturbing and ongoing pattern of violence."
We are deeply saddened by the death of Malakhi Moshe Rosenfeld, from wounds sustained yesterday in a drive-by shooting, which wounded three others. The shooting near the West Bank settlement of Shvut Rachel was the second terror attack of the day, after an Israeli soldier was stabbed by a Palestinian woman at a security checkpoint at the Rachel Crossing.
We strongly condemn these attacks, which have become tragically commonplace in Israel and the West Bank. Our thoughts are with the victims and their families and we pray for the recovery of the wounded.
AIPAC strongly condemns the arson attack that resulted in the death of the Palestinian infant Ali Saad Dawabsha and the serious injuries to the other members of his family in the village of Duma. We express our deep condolences to the family.
