The Holocaust Of The Dawabsheh Family
21 October 2015
By Khalid Amayreh
Reham Dawabsheh, 27, has finally succumbed to the critical
wounds she sustained when Jewish settlers torched her home at the village of
Duma south of Nablus in the West Bank about five weeks ago.
Initially, her toddler, 18-month- old Ali, was burned to death. Two weeks
ago, her husband Saad died of injuries sustained in the same incident. Reham,
a school teacher, was laid to rest next to her husband and child at her home
village Monday 7/9/2015.
Now, her only remaining child is fighting for his life. His overall
conditions have been described as "stable and improving."
The nefarious crime was carried out by ostensibly Messianic Jewish settlers
seeking to establish a pure Talmudic Jewish state, which the terrorists
believe would expedite and accelerate the appearance of the Redeemer or
Jewish Messiah who would usher the age of salvation for Jews and enable them
to build a worldwide empire.
The Israeli government did denounce the crime. But many observers, Jewish and
Arab alike, believe that condemnations of the crime by the Israeli government
were largely disingenuous and only intended to contain the public relations
damage generated by the hair-raising crime.
Binyamin Netanyahu himself vowed to catch and punish the perpetrators.
However, as of today, more than five weeks after the incident at Duma, no
terrorist has been apprehended.
It is widely believed that the problem is unlikely to be related to a dearth
of intelligence information that would lead to the arrest of the killers, but
rather has everything to do with the reluctance of the Israeli security
authorities to pursue the criminal terrorists.
One Israeli commentator alluded to this suspicious reluctance, saying "a
venomous snake doesn't bite its tail."
The virtual annihilation of the Dawabsheh family is perfectly compatible with
strategic Zionist goals, namely getting rid of the Palestinians by all means
Israel has failed to achieve this goal as Palestinian demographic growth
seems to have thwarted nearly all Zionist designs to empty Palestine of its
Indeed, Israel is now openly admitting that there are already more
Palestinians than Jews in mandatory Palestine, e.g. between the River Jordan
and the Mediterranean.
Hence, it is highly likely that Israel is now trying to unleash its ultimate
weapon against Palestinian existence, namely organized or unorganized terror.
Israeli officials believe that the Jewish state would be able to exonerate
itself of this widespread terror, however genocidal it might be, by arguing
that "civil wars happen and often lead to undesirable but inevitable
To conclude, the willful failure of the Zionist state to catch the genocidal
terrorists who carried out a holocaust against the Dawabsheh family shows
that Israel is only trying to deceive the world public opinion.
It also suggests that the attempted annihilation of the Dawabsheh family was
by no means an isolated act of genocidal terror by some religious fanatics
and that the next genocidal act is only a matter of time.
