Obama’s “Peace Partners” Celebrate Slaughter of American Honor Student, “My Friend, Taylor Force” “America’s finest” “Handsome, Articulate, brilliant, and just so GOOD”

Obama’s peace partners are celebrating the Muslim terrorist as a “martyr whose name is engraved in blood.” Obama says nothing, does nothing. Worse, President Obama will attempt to jump-start Israeli-“Palestinian” negotiations in his last months in office by forcing Israel to accept “Palestinian” annihilationist demands, according to the Wall Street Journal. The Palestinians call for the destruction of Israel. Obama expects the tiny Jewish state to sign off on that?

Fatah joins official PA TV and Hamas in celebrating recent deadly terror attacks, while encouraging further murders.

Obama says nothing, but if school authorities take precautions when a  Muslim student in Texas dissembles a clock to make it look like a bomb, fuhgeddaboudit. All hell breaks loose at the White House.

Fatah celebrates murder of American tourist:

Fatah: Murderer of American tourist is “heroic Martyr”
PA TV News: American victim is “settler” PMW, March 9, 2016:

Fatah and the Palestinian Authority celebrated yesterday’s murder of Taylor Force, an American tourist who was visiting Israel with Vanderbilt University. Fatah’s official Facebook page posted a drawing of a knife held over the PA map of “Palestine” that includes all of Israel and the PA areas.

Text on arm: “The heroic Martyr (Shahid)”
Text on map is name of Taylor Force’s murderer: “Bashar Masalha”
[Official Fatah Facebook page, March 9, 2016]

Palestinian terrorist Masalha ran through the streets of Tel Aviv-Jaffa yesterday stabbing every civilian he passed, killing Force and injuring 11.

Official PA TV coined the American and other victims “settlers.” The PA often calls all Israeli cities – “occupied” – and all Israelis – “settlers” – a category of people they have claimed that international law gives them the right to murder. By calling the American a “settler” – even though he is not Israeli and was in Tel Aviv-Jaffa, official PA TV news is putting the blame on the victim.

PA TV likewise honored the killer calling him a “Shahid” – an Islamic Martyr:

Official PA TV reporter: “A complex operation was carried out in Jaffa, or more precisely in the Jaffa port, by the Martyr (Shahid) – according to Hebrew sources and sources in Qalqilya – Bashar Masalha, 22… in which 12 settlers were hurt, among them an American tourist who was killed, according to the Hebrew sources.”

Fatah and the PA are headed by Mahmoud Abbas.

In another post Fatah honored all the terrorists who were killed yesterday while carrying out three separate attacks (see below), posting their pictures with the following text:

“Happy are the Martyrs (Shahids)
[Official Fatah Facebook page, March 9, 2016]

Yet another post by Fatah glorified the three terrorists as follows:

“In the Martyrs’ (Shahids’) homeland and on the day the Martyrs are roses, flying to their Creator, to Allah’s mercy. O the pride of all of the young Palestinians, may your blood remain a source of true honor for the homeland for which you sacrificed all – even your precious lives. We promise you that your blood will continue to be a torch that illuminates our path, until we achieve what you died for as Martyrs. Your blood has taught us a lesson in the school of life: #The_homeland’s_honor_is_above_all”
[Official Fatah Facebook page, March 8, 2016]

INN: Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas’s Fatah faction has heaped praise upon the Arab terrorists behind the string of attacks over the past 24 hours in Israel, which have claimed the life of an American tourist and injured scores of Israeli and foreign citizens.

Unusually, given the reticence by many world leaders to condemn Palestinian incitement outright, the degree to which official PA factions have celebrated the attacks even drew condemnation earlier Wednesday from visiting US Vice President Joe Biden.

As Arutz Sheva reported, apart from Hamas, the Palestinian Authority’s official TV station hailed the terrorist who murdered American Taylor Allen Force as a “martyr”, and praised his actions as “a complex operation” targeting “settlers” – despite the attack having occurred in Jaffa, inside the “Green Line.”

But Abbas’s Fatah faction, which regularly praises and encourages violence, has gone a step further, by glorifying and lionizing the attackers while calling for further attacks in a series of posts on its official social media outlets.

In one post on its official Facebook page shortly after the Jaffa attack, carried out by 22-year-old PA resident Bashar Masalha, Fatah uploaded a picture of a drawing of a hand holding a knife over the map of “Palestine” – which includes the entire State of Israel.

My friend Taylor Force is dead, By David Simpkins, March 9, 2016, 2:00 pm

He laughed and smiled a lot in the classes at West Point. He sat behind me, next to me, or across from me during our first two years at the United States’ premier institution. He was very mild-mannered, sharp, and professional. I couldn’t think of someone who was more of a model of “America’s finest” than him. He was handsome, articulate, brilliant, and just so GOOD. I can’t think of a moment where he wasn’t exuding an aura of pure positive energy. He was as honest and heartfelt as they come, but now he’s dead.

Taylor Force was murdered in cold blood by a West Bank Palestinian. Hamas announced that they’re celebrating their martyrs last night. As I write this, there are parties from Gaza to Ramallah continuing all day, and probably tonight. It’s not every day they get a former US Army officer who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. For them, this is a great boon.

Taylor died in a war that he didn’t know he was in the middle of. Taylor is dead because of a lot of misleading ideas about exactly what goes on in Israel. Misleading people is currently the policy of the US government.

The US and Israel’s policy is to see the idea of a Two State Solution through. The reason for this policy is the belief that there’s more good than evil in the world, and peace is a reality that can be achieved. Moreover, they believe peace is something that must be achieved.

In order to accomplish this peace, we, the Israeli people, must adhere to stringent politically correct terminology in public. All we can do is show the Palestinians that we love them and want to live with them. If the Palestinians don’t want to live with us, it’s because of something we Jews did to cause this. That means that the world believes that we, the Jewish-Israeli people, are to blame if Palestinians attack us because we are to blame for their frustration. This is simply not true or realistic.

Anyone who reads the Hamas charter knows that peace is not their agenda. While they have gained ground in the Palestinian political arena, Israel focused on tolerance and promoting co-existence by showcasing places like Yaffo (where my friend was stabbed to death) and Haifa. These places are the quintessence of integrated Arab-Israelis living alongside Jewish-Israelis in our society. Sadly, the success has been overstated.

Everyone in America and Europe is convinced that the majority Palestinians just want peace and that we Israelis are being hunted by a minority of extremists. Westerners have been duped into believing that Hamas only rules and influences in Gaza while the West Bank is ruled and influenced by Fatah.

Fatah is headed by Arafat’s former #2, “Abu Mazen” Mahmoud Abbas, and they are recognized as a legitimate political entity and “peace partner.” Hamas is classified as a terrorist organization by the United States. Europe removed Hamas’ terrorist designation in hopes of assisting the Palestinian Unity Government’s legitimacy and acceptance into the world so that a Two State Solution could be advanced. After the end of Palestinian Unity, Europe never bothered to re-label the organization for what it is. Like most Americans, and many Israelis, my friend didn’t understand the true dynamics of who holds sway over the Palestinian people.

The Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (PSR) released sobering figures in their 58th Palestinian Public Opinion Poll conducted last December. Two thirds of all Palestinians admitted they supported the knife attacks against Israelis. This means that six or seven of every 10 Palestinians you pass in the street want to see you dead or leaving Israel. Not every one of that number are willing to risk their lives and stab you themselves, but they actively support and cooperate with the ones who do. An example of this cooperation was seen when Arab-Israeli citizens aided Nishat Milhelm, the Tel Aviv shooter from last January, by hiding him in Wadi Ara.

The PSR released two more important facts on that poll: “65% want president Abbas to resign and 31% do not want him to resign. In presidential elections between Abbas and Haniyeh, the latter receives 51% and the latter 41% of the vote.” Haniyeh is the leader of Hamas. This means that 51% of the Palestinian people want a terrorist leader to be their president, and 10% are undecided.

Stating these facts makes me an extremist. A friend who I wrote my thesis with at West Point told me so. He’s a man I admire and respect very much. When he recently visited Israel, he did not reach out to visit me. He told me that I’m not politically correct, and that’s a problem. I am labelled an extremist due to the fact that I judge my surroundings by facts alone instead of relying on false hopes and dreams. We were taught to be neutral with the Arab-Israeli conflict at West Point. My friend is everything America expects and wants him to be, and I can never fault him for that.

Taylor is not dead because of Israel. It’s not Israel’s fault for occupying the land. It’s not Israel’s fault for making the Palestinians do this. There are over 60 territorial disputes worldwide, and most lead to absolutely no bloodshed whatsoever. It’s the Palestinians fault for murdering Taylor.

Taylor is dead because he didn’t know the reality of the situation in Israel. While he was in a predominantly Arab district just South of central Tel Aviv, he believed he was surrounded by peace-loving people like himself. He was only half correct. He didn’t realize that over 50% of the Palestinian population in Israel politically supports Hamas, while two-thirds ideologically support Hamas’ actions. If Taylor only knew that, he could be alive right now. Biased politics and political correctness gave my friend a false sense of security. That’s what gave a Palestinian the opportunity he needed. He used that opportunity to kill one of the best men I ever crossed paths with.

Now, in the fashion of our Alma Mater: “Well done! Be Thou at Peace.” I’ll see you on the Higher Ground, old friend. Tonight, I will fill my glasses and sing a round of Benny Haven’s for you in the Jerusalem shuk. When I do, I’ll stay alert. I want peace, but I understand that not all of the Palestinians want the same future as me. I’ll stay ready for a knife. With G-D’s help, I will stay alive.

    How could you have peace with these people? Maybe someone could put something in their water…thorazine or something they sedate the mental patients with. Or better just hop in and take the West Bank and Gaza strip, stop fuhking about and just get it over with.

  • Palestinians are Savage Beasts

    Abbas is ultimately responsible for the death of Taylor Force, it is the “Palestinian Authority” that has spent the last thirty years brainwashing the Arabs in the “West Bank” to believe that killing Israelis is the righteous thing to do.

    The Palestinians are a bunch of savage animals. How sad and tragic Taylor Force had his entire life in front of him.
    I still have Canadian and American friends that are going to travel to Israel this month and this won’t stop them.

    “Many people do not understand that this hatred from Muslim society against the Jews did not start as a result of the creation of Israel, but it started from Mohammed himself who issued a fatwa against the Jews in the seventh century. That is the root of it all. Mohammed said in his hadith: “The Hour Resurrection will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and kill them. And the Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, this is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!” 42

    The world must demand that this hadith be take out of Muslim scriptures and never be taught to any Muslim child.”

      And our presidential front runner, Donald Dumpf, says he won’t take sides between Israel and the “Palestinians.” That in and of itself should tell every American that he isn’t fit to be elected.

      • Grandson Of TheGrumpus

        Yet, recent data says that Israeli Jews know Mr.Trump is a friend of Israel.

        You know, if a politician says “he won’t take sides”, it could mean that unlike policy under the last three presidents, he won’t rein-in Israel’s retribution when they’re terror-attacked!

    So clock boy is suing for $15 million dollars the people of Texas, what is this young man’s family going to get for the loss of his life that had only begun? What price can you put on it? Will Obama Hussein put a picture of him on the mantel at the White House? Alongside the clock that is sitting there?
    The Jews were living in Israel for thousands of years before Islam even began. Why are the Arab children being taught in school that Jews are the descendants of dogs and pigs? And that they have taken the Arab land of Palestine and must be annihilated and driven into the sea? Now Iran is writing this on their missiles they are launching with the $150 billion that Obama gave them: “Israel must be destroyed”. Islam has deceived once again.

  • Trevor Fortune

    Now come on, you can’t say he will do nothing. Obama will spend a lot of time in quiet contemplation weighing up his decision, then definitely go with the driver off the first tee.

    And Mahou Shoujo, that is sarcasm and even you shouldn’t need it explaining to you this time.

    • Mahou Shoujo

    Obama is silent. Back some years ago, during the election protests in Teheran, Obama was silent. The Persian people cried out, “Obama, Obama, if you’re not with us, you’re with them.” Obama was silent. So, the reptiles had to obsess about the death of Michael Jackson for six weeks—to cover up the silence of Obama.
    Now, Taylor Force is dead, murdered by a savage. Obama is silent. Why so? The savage was a Muslim. Obama does not speak against Muslim terrorism. Why so?

      I think your question must be rhetorical, because the section from one of his “autobiographies” has been quoted wide enough for anyone to answer your question.
      Remember? Something about the political winds shifting against the muslims… and his protecting their actions?

      Also, looking at his actions, and the fruits that have sprung therefrom— rather than his protestations— the occam’s razor answer is that he is muslim. And practicing the “holy” lying that is first nature to the creed.

    Besides the infinitely sad and enraging slaughter of this young man by another moslem maggot, I find something even more surreal and enraging about it. That is, a young man graduating from one of our finest military academies who was apparently unaware that simply walking around in Israel made his life forfeit at the hands of the slaughterers of mohammed. Also, given my background, I find it even more enraging that a man coming out of Westpoint didn’t know how to defend himself against a knife attack. My point is that our military academies are, apparently, not creating actual warriors and I find that very disturbing and frightening. This is no reflection on Mr. Force. May he rest in peace for eternity. If I was President, I would carpet/cluster bomb “Palestine” to dust simply for this one incident. Death to Islam.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    RIP Mr. Force. My condolences to his family as well. I hope someone killed the muslum bastage that did this.

  • Merchantseamen

    I work 2 jobs busy all the time. Getting ready to head now. So our goober in chump failed to make a comment on this young man who died? What is wrong with him. What is wrong with US??? We should be marching on Washington like Becks millions(?) did a couple of years ago. Demand that his clown resign and vacate. The neutered concretes will do nothing they are so worried about their parties and $500.00 nite whores. I have more respect for the hookers, at least they know who they are and have a plan for early retirement. I hope.
