  • Elder of Ziyon
Rabbi Mark's funeral
In July, I reported about the Arab heroes who helped save the children of the fatally wounded Rabbi Miki Mark. Yet the names of the heroes were not publicized at that time. Only a little later did the New York Times report his name.

At the same time, Palestinians were honoring their versions of "heroes" - a group of children who had viciously attacked Jews with knives.

I wrote then:
The first set of Arabs, the true heroes, do not allow their names to be publicized [the NYT did publish their names afterwards - EoZ}. They don't want their neighbors and friends to know that they saved the lives of Jews.

The families of the second set of Arabs, terrorists who are treated as heroes, are very proud of their sons and are thrilled to announce the names and publish the photos of these murderers and would-be murderers to the world.

Anyone who self-righteously tries to describe the Israelis and Palestinian Arabs as morally equal - those who say that both sides have suffered, both sides are at fault, both sides are in a "cycle of violence" - are very, very wrong. And the proof is right here.

Terrorists like those who murdered the Marks are heroes to the Palestinians, as we have seen countless times.

The actual Arab heroes - the people who saved the lives of their enemies - are not heroes at all to their people, and in fact their heroism is something not to be spoken about in public. Their names and faces are not known. The only articles about them are from Israeli media, not from Palestinian media.

There is no moral equivalence between the two sides. For Palestinians, terrorists are heroes and real heroes are an embarrassment.

Israelis and Palestinians are moral opposites.

This has become even more apparent in this update from Times of Israel:
The Palestinian man who saved the children of a West Bank rabbi after a deadly terror attack that killed him has been fired from his job, according to the head of Har Hevron Regional Council.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, Yochai Damari said that the man is now unemployed due to Palestinian opposition to his actions and should be assisted by Israel.

“I met with him and he asked me to help remove any obstacle preventing him from receiving a work permit,” Damari wrote. Such a permit would allow the man to obtain employment inside Israel.
The idea of Palestinians honoring those who save Jewish lives is ludicrous.

What is worse is the hypocrisy of the scores of "human rights" NGOs operating in the territories.

They could step in and honor the couple who first arrived to help the Mark family. They could offer a job for someone who obviously cares about human rights. They could publicize the failings of Palestinian society to help make it better. (Don't they claim that this is why they criticize Israel?)

But they are silent. They condone Arab antisemitism by not saying a word when it manifests itself, and they shy away when given the chance to practice what they preach. And they certainly don't say anything when Arab murderers are honored.

Their concern for human rights ends when the humans involved happen to be Jews - or  even Arabs who don't consider Jews to be their enemy.
