“There is no excuse for murdering women in front of their children,” said the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations on Monday.

Danny Danon’s comments were apparently in response to a statement by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, who wrote last week that 50 years of Israeli military occupation of the Palestinian territories — territories captured by Israel during the 1967 Six-Day War — was continuing to fuel “resistance.”

His comment was also a likely reference of the death of Dafna Meir, who was stabbed in front of her teenager daughter by a Palestinian teenage intruder to their home in Otniel last month.

Israeli officials, including Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, accused Ban of encouraging Palestinian terrorism, especially amid the current period of near-daily attacks against Israeli soldiers and civilians.

“No one can deny that the everyday reality of occupation provokes anger and despair, which are major drivers of violence and extremism and undermine any hope of a negotiated two-state solution,” said Ban on Monday, according to the Times of Israel.

The UN secretary general also stressed, however, that “the stabbings, vehicle-rammings and other attacks by Palestinians targeting Israeli civilians are reprehensible. So, too, are the incitement of violence and the glorification of killers. Nothing excuses terrorism. I condemn it categorically.”

Israeli security forces, meanwhile, foiled another attempted stabbing in Judea and Samaria (West Bank), in Sal’it, a moshav near Tulkarem. According to Army Radio, an Israeli soldier managed to shoot and seriously wound the Palestinian assailant mid-attack.

    In the tenants of Islam murdering Jews is not optional it is an absolute. Now listen carefully I want you to get this….all Jews must die. Not half of them, not a quarter of them, not ten percent…every Jew on this planet must be killed…and they do not care how it is done. That same dictate also applies to Christians because we were cut into the abrahamic covenant through Jesus. What you do not understand is that this is a war between God and god. Since your adversaries cannot kill God they are going to kill his elect. The spiritual leader of those factions that oppose you has a bone to pick with Israel. The messianic line that displaced him was the Jews, that’s right, the Jews, the Israelis and in his eyes you are going to die for it….or him and all his minions will decimate themselves attempting to eradicate you. That’s a fact! Unless you can defend yourself they are going to kill you. First they will negotiate with you, send in their best negotiators to become your Closest friends, you know the good cop bad cop. Kerry puts his arm around you and says we love you man…as the U.N. Calls you names…occupiers, war criminals, how about calling you Jews…they hate you because you are Jews…that is it in the nutshell..you have a God that owns this planet and they represent a god that wants to lay claim to it. That’s what it is all about, the warships, the nuclear weapons, hitlers rampage, the Palestinian intifada, the caliphate, the Syrian war, the Arab Spring, Bengazi, the attempted American coup against Egypt….it’s all about killing Jews…and we all know what the bible says about everyone who joins in the fray…God will crush them…as Israel defends itself God will crush their enemy’s.

    “No one can deny that the everyday reality of occupation provokes anger and despair, ”

    IN which case I suggest removing the occupying arabs from the land of Israel… after all, it is they who cannot live in peace with the Jews in the Jewish homeland. There is no reason to reward them by leaving the Jewish homeland for them to build their homes instead of the Jews.

  • No excuse for murdering women in front of their children?

    Does that mean there is an excuse for murdering women not in the presence of their children?

    There’s no excuse for murder, period.
