The Difference Between Israel And Palestine

The Palestinians hate Israel so much that they would gleefully slaughter even the most innocent Israeli.

But when they need help, who do they turn to? Not Allah. Not Hamas or Saudi Arabia or any other Islamic entity.

They turn to Israelis.

After massacre, settlers help bring new life into world: 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.

The paramedics noted that only a few meters away, baby Hadas Fogel was viciously slaughtered. They recalled seeing fireworks and celebrations in Palestinian communities after the Fogel murders. But their job is to save lives.

Israelis truly love children more than they hate their enemies. It is unfortunate the same can't be said for Palestinians.

I wonder if we'll see this story in the LA Times? Isn't it telling that settlements provoke Palestinians to kill innocents, yet, even in the face of unapologetic savagery, Israel remains immune to such provocation?

That's the difference between good and evil, between humanity and bestiality, and between Israelis and Islamists.
