One tenet of the Bush Doctrine is that nations that fund terror should be held as accountable as the actual terrorists. Well, based upon that judgment, we should be punishing ourselves for aiding the so called "Palestinians" with hundreds of millions of dollars, equipment, and military training. These same peaceful loving recipients of U.S. aid, decided to brutally kill a random American tourist in Israel. The NY Daily News has the scoop:
An American tourist was brutally stabbed to death in Israel as she hiked with a friend who says they were attacked by a pair of Arab men. Israeli officials found the body of Christine Logan, a U.S. citizen whose age and hometown were not immediately released, Sunday morning outside of Jerusalem. She had been bound and stabbed multiple times. Logan's friend, Kaye Susan Wilson, who hails from England but has lived in Israel for decades, was also bound and stabbed numerous times but managed to escape. Wilson, 46, said the two men had attacked with murder in their eyes. "They came to kill," she told Israeli news agency Ynet from her hospital bed.
She said they had been hiking in a mountainous area between the southern Jerusalem suburb of Tzur Hadassah and the nearby town of Beit Shemesh on Saturday when the men approached.
"Two Arabs passed and asked, 'Do you have any water?'" she said. "I felt something was wrong. I turned to [Christine] in English and told her something doesn't feel right and that we should return to the path." Wilson said she pulled out a small knife, but the men followed and quickly gained the upper hand. "They came and attacked us. One of them pulled out a very long knife - like a bread knife with a sharpened edge," she said. She said Logan immediately offered to hand over all their money and jewelry but the men seemed to have other intentions. "They took everything. One of them took the Star of David necklace off my neck like a gentlemen, and then stabbed me 12 times," she said. "Nobody walks around with a knife like that for no reason." Wilson said she played dead and when the men left, she bolted until she was able to find help. A massive manhunt was launched, and Logan's body was found Sunday morning alongside a road. The killers were not found.
These are the people who receive more foreign aid per capita than anyone else in world history. It will be interesting to see if the Republicans will keep their promise of restructuring foreign aid in the 112th session. We should not be giving them anything. Any weapons and munitions should be used on them, not given to them so they can murder Israelis and Americans. The bottom line is that we should not be dolling out taxpayer cash to Islamofacists. Any foreign aid should be expended only to fund those countries that serve our strategic interests (Israel, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, the new Honduran government, etc.). This will be yet another test for the new Republican majority.
Omullah the islamist misogynist will say nothing.
This tenant is right. Too bad the government can't seem to carry it out. Tough when you have a POTUS who seems sympathetic or at least ambivalent towards the Islamic terrorists.
Seemed that even Bush himself may have deviated from actually getting Osama when he may have had the chance.
Let’s be culturally sensitive. This is just some mooslim’s way of wishing you a Merry Christmas.
Yes, “We commend you to Allah.”
“She said Logan immediately offered to hand over all their money and jewelry but the men seemed to have other intentions.”
ROFLMAO!!!! Ya think?!?!?! Hey you morons, it’s called, “jihad”!!!! Want to know what it feels like to be an infidel on the receiving end a weapon in the hand of a Muzzie? Want to know what real misogyny feels like? Well, you got it, sistah!
Two probably liberal, naive, American women go walking alone in the desert in a country where Arabs are known to inhabit. Do they ever question if it is safe to go? Do they consult any Israelis for a second opinion for doing such a suicidal thing? I bet they’d go swimming in a lake full of alligators if they were asked to do so. Think those alligators might have other intentions?
I forgot to mention. They were also on the receiving end of full out anti-Semitism.
I know what you are driving at, but (1) we don't have any indication that there were previous incidents of this type in the area, (2) the area was mountainous, not necessarily desert, and (3) one of the women was a Brit having lived in Israel for several years. Probably liberal? Maybe, maybe not. No hint of political leanings in the article.
You are correct to say, though, that the motive was almost surely jihad and hatred of Israelis and Westerners. westerners.
Let the Israeli police investigate this crime, before drawing any conclusions. Their spokesman says that the exact nature of events is still to be determined. The existing witness statements have some flaws and points of immprobability. No description of the two attackers has been circulated.
There was a crime, some months back, where a little Indian boy died in Melbourne Australia. The international media took it up - calling Australians out - suggesting he was the victim of a hate crime. Eventually, an Indian man who lived in that same household, a friend of the parents was arrested.
If you read the posted article and others on this crime, you'll find that the surviving woman has described the perps as Arabs who spoke Arabic.
Miss Wilson told police they had been attacked by two Arab men ... She told Israeli newspaper Haaretz she and her companion had been sitting down, just off the hiking trail, when the two men approached and asked them in Hebrew if they had any water.
Presumably, she means that they spoke Hebrew with an Arab accent.
Describing them as Arabic speaking Arabs is not much help. What is lacking is the details of age, appearance, approximate height, and how they were dressed. The failure to circulate a description is very unusual in a crime of this type.
