New York Jews say kaddish for dead Hamas terrorists

Saying Kaddish for dead Hamas terrorists? How low can you get? Are such left-wing “Jews” even human?

These were the sort of remarks made after reports came out that New York Jews belonging to the Reform Movement had said Kaddish, the Jewish mourners’ prayer, for dead Hamas terrorists. The dead whom they hoped to memorialize had attacked Israeli soldiers; rushed Israel’s borders, and threatened the lives of Jewish Israelis. In saying Kaddish for terrorists who threatened Israel and the Jewish people, these Jews had made a clear statement in favor of antisemitic terror and against their own people, their own land.
One week later, a copycat Kaddish for terrorists was held by IfNotNow, another group of leftist Jews, this time next to the offices of the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles. News of this memorial service evoked similar expressions of umbrage from the pro-Israel Jewish community. The Kaddish-sayers, they said, were (choose one):
Vile garbage
Useful idiots
Not Jewish
Some further expressed the hope that the leftist Jews might meet an end similar to that of those they mourned, preferably after bumping into some live Hamas terrorists in a dark alley.
But if you think about it, all they did, those leftist Jews, was praise God, express yearning for the Messianic era, and pray for peace in Israel and for the Jewish people at large.
Because that’s what Kaddish is. There’s not one word about mourning or death in the entire prayer—and certainly nothing about dead Hamas terrorists or an imaginary second state in the Holy Land. See for yourself—here’s an English translation of the traditional Aramaic:
Glorified and sanctified be God’s great name throughout the world
which He has created according to His will.
May He establish His kingdom in your lifetime and during your days,
and within the life of the entire House of Israel, speedily and soon;
and say, Amen.
May His great name be blessed forever and to all eternity.
Blessed and praised, glorified and exalted, extolled and honored,
adored and lauded be the name of the Holy One, blessed be He,
beyond all the blessings and hymns, praises and consolations that
are ever spoken in the world; and say, Amen.
May there be abundant peace from heaven, and life, for us
and for all Israel; and say, Amen.
He who creates peace in His celestial heights,
may He create peace for us and for all Israel;
and say, Amen.
What this brings to mind, these leftist Jews who would come to mourn and memorialize terrorists and instead praise God, is the story of Balak and Balaam. That’s the bible story in which Balak, king of Moab, orders Balaam, a famed non-Jewish magician, to curse the Jews. When Balaam opens his mouth, alas, only praises come out.

Here is where these Jews go wrong: they think that all death is bad, no matter who it is that is doing the dying. And since IDF soldiers ended these particular lives, it makes Israel evil in their eyes, the terrorists the victims. To them it does not matter that the terrorists were killed while attempting to commit murder—the murder of Jews. To them it is meritorious to die a martyr while to kill your would-be murderer is evil.

It is a stupid construct. They are unable to see the difference between attacking others and defending one's self and one's country. If everyone felt as they did, believed as they do, evil would triumph. They themselves, the "peaceful" ones, would all be dead, the world left to the murderers.

There would be no Jews left to say Kaddish, a primary goal of Radical Islam.

And so, if the death of Hamas terrorists at the hands of righteous IDF soldiers causes leftist New York and Los Angeles Reform Jews to praise God, pray for the Messiah, and beg for peace on Israel and the Jewish people—and moreover elicit in response a chorus of amens—then the deaths of these wannabe murderers of God’s Chosen People are more meaningful than any one of us might have possibly guessed.
