MYSTERY: Why Does The World Only Care About Abu Akleh’s Death?

6
Can anyone solve the mystery of the world's focus on the death of Shireen Abu Akleh out of the 11 Al Jazeera journalists killed on the front lines?

Since the founding of the fiercely anti-Israel Al-Jazeera media outlet in Qatar in 1996, twelve of its journalists have been killed on the battlefront.

Seven journalists were killed in Syria, two in Iraq, one in Libya, one in Yemen, and one in the Shomron.

Apart from their family members, neighbors and friends, not one person around the world recognizes the names and/or photos of eleven of those journalists.

Only one – Shireen Abu-Akla – killed in the course of a gun battle between IDF soldiers and Palestinian terrorists, has earned worldwide fame. And only one country, Israel, has been vilified for the death of a journalist who recklessly risked her life by planting herself near armed terrorists.

It’s truly a puzzling mystery but a special hint for YWN readers can be found in Rashi on Parshas Yayishlach, Perek 33, Passuk Daled.

  1. הלכה היא בידוע שעשו שונא את יעקב.
    The Torah has been alive since 2448 – actually even before – and it is alive today just as it was alive then!

    Human life is of no matter for these Jew haters.
    The parents send their kids to be Shahid and they sacrifice themselves on the alter of Jew Hating.
    Amalek? Blind hate?
    Life Is of no consequence. They (Arabs together with the help of European money and now US – the infection of open Jew haters has reached US through the Left-) could die 1000 at a pop and no one gives a dam. For example China and their Muslim population, we don’t see Iran Pakistan, Afghanistan, Qatar, UAE, Bahrain, Iraq, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt …………. Give a bad UN speech.
    And so on.
    What’s disturbing is that the Jews are indifferent to the plight of other Jews specifically and silent in the “leadership” endangering the Jews.
    ONLY IF JEWS WERE UNITED.
    ONLY IF JEWS LOVED EACHOTHER AND LIFTED STRANGERS.
    ONLY IF JEWS DIDNT CHEAT IN BUSINESS AND WERE CAREFUL IN LASHON HARA.
    ONLY IF THE FRUM JEWS WOULD BE A EXAMPLE TO THE SECULAR JEWS AND MADE A IMPACT.

    Only if.

  3. tzionim think they will live like goyim act like goyim and the goyim will like them
    the torah tells us otherwise
    they hate us even more

  4. Please explain, who are the “Tziyoinim” you are referring to?

    Why do find it important to mention “Tziyoiness” in a day and age that that problems of the frum world are obviously are of different sort and coming from different places.

    Not that anyone cares if you think that the Tzionos issue is still around. But by focusing on and perpetuating crucial issues of a past generation and less relevant today, you are loosing focus of the true battles of yiddishkeit today and may be paying a serious price for that….

    I know you may respond with some kind of phrase that is preached in the anti Tzionim circles but I still suggest you think about this.

    Oblivious to the argument of if other parts of Klal yisroel were less wary of the danger of tziyoiness in the past. Its time to focus on real issues and stop covering your eyes by trying to live in the past of Tziyones….

    P.S. I think the thought of living like a goy etc. is true about any jew that is not living shomer Torah umitzvos.
