ISRAELI TEEN GANG ATTACKS ARABS
By Rev. Ted Pike

It was April 30, 2008—eve of the National Day of Prayer and
Holocaust Remembrance Day. In America, approximately 40,000 Christian
churches prepared to remember God’s past goodness and pray
for future national deliverance. In Israel, Jews of all persuasions
prepared to remember how badly Gentiles treated their people, especially
during the Holocaust. They vow to never, never forget.
That fateful day, a message began to circulate, via the internet,
among Jewish youth in Jerusalem. It said every "real Jew" should
meet at 10 p.m. at a north Jerusalem shopping mall—to kill
extensive news story reports that as many as 200 teenage boys
gathered in the mall to attack.
Because the mall had been closed in anticipation of Holocaust Remembrance
Day, not an Arab was seen for two hours. Finally, two Arab
teens passed on their way home to their refugee camp. The Jewish
youth descended on them. They kicked, beat, and stabbed the two teens.
Fortunately, a police vehicle happened by. The teenage mob scattered.
One assailant told police that the fiercest attack began on the
smaller Arab boy. "I more or less saw that they jumped,
kicked, stepped on him, on the Arab. The kid was a trampoline
and punching bag…I cried a little on the side. And then
the police came, and all of them ran away like ants. If the
police hadn't come after five minutes, that boy would have been done
for. I came back after three or four minutes to see what was happening
with him, and I heard him shouting, 'Mother, mother!'"
Another participant said, "I saw the Arab running with holes
in his back and his whole jacket was full of blood." The emergency
room log reports, "Hematoma under right eye, shortness of breath,
stabbed by a knife in two places on the back part of the chest cavity," etc.
Surgeons had to open the boy’s stomach to remove blood and
Police phone records following the attack revealed exultation among
several of the assailants and keen anticipation of another attack
in about a month. Haaretz says this "was not another case of
routine juvenile violence but an unusual incident of racist-nationalist
Haaretz reports that some Jewish parents actually drove their children
to the mall, evidently aware of what was to take place. A former
security guard from the mall "heard what happened here on the
eve on Holocaust Day and doesn't hide his satisfaction." The
guard said, "The police don't do anything, and the time has
come for someone to take the law into their own hands. It's a very
Meanwhile, throughout Israel, militant orthodox rabbis intensify
calls for violence against Arabs and mass expulsions of Arabs from
Israel. Even Christian Jews experience daily acts of persecution,
as anti-Arab, anti-Christian sentiment in Israel increases. Polls
show a large percentage of Israelis favor transfer of Arabs from
Did you see this story featured in either the Christian or secular
news media? It wasn't. Like
the burning of hundreds of New Testaments in Israel last month,
the pro-Israel media usually censors such unflattering stories. Also,
there is no suggestion, even in the Haaretz article, that this attack,
like the Bible burnings, is a hate crime.
The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith, PR representative for
Israel and hate law henchman to the world, imposes anti-Christian
hate laws on every nation they can except Israel. Why? Because hate
laws are intended to entrap Christians, not Israelis. If Israel prosecuted
its hundreds of bias-motivated hate crimes over the past decades,
it would clog their courts for the next generation!
It's no accident that this "racist-nationalist" incident
took place on the eve on Holocaust Remembrance Day. Clearly,
as the internet messages stated, the attack was to be a collective
act of young Jewish pride and vengeance against Arabs -- Gentiles
who symbolized all who had oppressed Jews for centuries, especially
during the Holocaust.
These Jewish youths were victims of a "never forget, never
forgive" sickness within Judaism.
Evangelical Christians think Talmudic Judaism, as part of our "Judeo-Christian
tradition," is a kindred faith, sharing the same high-minded
ethical traditions of Christianity. Nothing could be further from
The ethics of Christianity are forward-looking, encouraging that
Christians be "forgetting what lies behind and looking forward
to what lies ahead."(Phil. 3:13) Christians are to do
the opposite of what comes naturally. They are to pray for
those who have abused them, turning the other cheek and doing good
to their oppressors. The Christian's desire is to bring enemies to
repentance and salvation, not punishment and destruction.
The Talmud contends, however, that, if you know your enemy wants
to kill you, you should not pray for him or show him kindness; you
should kill him first! Judaism teaches that safety for
Jews consists of never, never forgetting what the "goyim" have
done to their ancestors. This memory, Judaism insists, is essential
in guaranteeing such oppression will never happen again.
Protection through bitterness and revenge is not unique to Judaism. Feuding
groups, from ethnic minorities of the Balkans to the Catholics and
Protestants of Northern Ireland to the Sunnis and Shiites of the
Moslem world, all vow to never forget past atrocities. They take
up the sword of unforgiveness and vengeance. Generations die from
that sword. The result is only blood and more bad blood.
Christ taught that it’s best not to create offenses in the
first place. As God exiled the Jews to Babylon in 597 B.C. He told
them through Jeremiah that they would have peace if they earnestly
sought the peace and welfare of their host nations (Jer. 29:7). Tragically,
in Babylon, most Jews followed the advice of the emerging scribes
and Pharisees. These evil, racist leaders taught that all Jews are
holy and semi-divine. Racially and spiritually superior to Gentile "beasts," Jews
are destined to rule. 1 In fact, rabbis taught in the
Kabbalah that a world in which Jews do not rule is a world in chaos.
Every Jew is obligated to "restore order" by weakening
Gentile power through any possible means. Only by such subversion
would messiah (anti-Christ) be realized.
As a result of this racist-revolutionary impetus, Jewish wanderings
over the past millennia have been punctuated by expulsions from some
60 countries. Did this happen, as Jews contend, entirely from
Christian and Gentile bigotry? Or was Jewish supremacism the thorn
that provoked Gentile outrage?
Programmed to Hate
The possibly 200 youths who gathered to attack Arabs had been saturated
in the "never forgive, never forget" hate speech inherent
in Talmudic Judaism. They knew nothing of the "love your
enemy" ethics of Christianity, just as their parents, rabbis,
politicians, and military leaders do not. If Israel fully practiced,
even for one day, Christian ethics of love toward one's enemies,
the whole Mid-East would rapidly begin to be transformed for the
Instead, Israel hits the Arabs, and the Arabs hit back. Back
and forth for generations, the hatred only deepens.
That's why the Mid-East bleeds.
That's why two innocent Arab boys bled in a shopping mall in north
That's why thousands of American troops have bled in the Middle
East today -- out of a misguided duty to protect the misdeeds of
a nation and religion whose guiding principles are massively, destructively
1. The Zohar, or Kabbalah, is considered divinely inspired by religious
Jews. Most Orthodox Jews accept its authority as equal to the
Talmud's. Ultraorthodox Jews consider it superior. In
only one of many passages, the Zohar upholds the exalted status of
Jews and degraded state of Gentiles (Soncino translation):
