Fodder for the Internationals: Home destruction is legal

Oh, this ruling is going to get the ISM peace creeps into a tizzy.

The Jerusalem Magistrate's Court denied a restitution claim filed by the family of the suicide bomber who carried out the 2001 attack on the Sbarro restaurant in Jerusalem.

The family demanded monetary compensation from the State for razing their house, in the West Bank city of Jenin.

Izz al-Din Shuheil al-Masri blew himself up in the middle of the Sbarro restaurant on August 9, 2001. The deadly attack, which included a 70kilogram (15-pound) explosives belt rigged with nails, nuts and bolts, claimed the lives of 15 people, including seven children, and left 130 wounded.

Judge Yoel Tsur, presiding over the hearing, ruled Monday that razing and sealing off of terrorists' homes was a legal act of war. Tsur cited a Supreme Court ruling stating that such an act could be used as a measure of deterrence and that it complies with international law.
And I don't really care. You know what this case really proves? How well the security fence is working. Attacks like the Sbarro bombings used to come at the rate, sometimes, of two a day. Children were being ripped apart by metal shrapnel on a regular basis.

Now, Hamas and its terrorist brethren have no other way to murder children than to do it with weapons that can't kill and wound 145 people at one blow. Not that that stops them from targeting children.

The fence is working.

  2. Yes, the wall has worked. Thank G-d Israel went ahead and built it despite the protests of the world.

    I wish the United States had built our wall prior to this administration taking over. Unfortunately all the people suffering from the guilt heaped upon them drug their feet.

    I pray for Israel's safety and the return of sanity for our country.

  3. Yes, yes, we know that since the fence has been erected, the number of Israelis killed every year has dropped from two thousand to only a dozen or so. But wouldn't it be worth it to reduce the number killed to zero per year? All it would take would be for all the Israelis to put away their weapons, tear down the barriers they have raised, and let the Palesitnians kill every single one of them. Once there are no Israelis left alive, no more will ever be killed again! Wouldn't that be worth the blood of ten million people?

    I will tomorrow unveil my proposal to end the possibility of murders occurring anywhere in the world, mostly involving a super-charismatic leader and fifty million tons of Kool-Aid. I expect it will cause quite a stir.
