(Jewish Press) -- “We have become like Sodom and Gemorrah,” the judge lamented, referring to the hard kick the Arab woman terrorist received from a Jewish bystander after an attempted stabbing. The judge’s assessment was correct, but not in the manner he intended. It is the judge who represents the Sodom mentality, which turns values inside out, rendering good, bad and bad, good. The Jew who kicked the Arab terrorist still has moral clarity; it is the judge who is stricken with the Sodom mentality.
Clearly, not all the Arabs are murderers. There are very good people among them, some of them personal friends of mine. I believe that many of them – perhaps even the majority – feel very badly about the wave of Arab murderousness enveloping us right now. But that does not change the fact that we are currently in a war. Arabs in the Land of Israel (from both sides of the Green Line), backed by determined and dominating religious and political leadership, have declared that the lives of Jews are worth nothing. And they have acted on these declarations.
This is not a criminal conflict in which, as soon as the intruder is neutralized, it is clear that the court – and not the victim – must determine his sentence. No.
