Earlier this week, a 17-year-old Israeli girl was murdered at the hands of Palestinian terrorists in yet another cowardly attack.
Ignoring the Truth
Both Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) have made serious accusations against Israel. However, we never hear either of them condemn senseless attacks such as this against innocents.
According to Israeli publications, Rina Shnerb was with her brother and father on a hiking expedition when the attack occurred.
Reports stated that Palestinian terrorists threw a bomb at the three of them as they were hiking near Dolev at the Ein Bubin Spring.
Rina was killed by the explosion. Her brother, Dvir, was seriously injured and their father, Rabbi Eitan Shnerb, was also injured, although his injuries are not believed to be serious.
Rabbi Schnerb described the attack:
I remember everything. We called the hotline and were told it was possible to enter [the spring]. We parked in the parking lot upstairs. When we got close to the spring, a large explosive device went off and everything turned black. I heard Dvir shouting, and I shouted “Rina, Rina.” I looked down, but after seeing Rina, I understood … Rina saved us all. She died the death of heroes. Her face was intact. I gave her a kiss and said to her: “We will be strong.”
Sadly, Omar and Tlaib will probably never mention this attack, and if they are asked about it by the media, they will likely attempt to place the blame elsewhere.
Attacked on Their Own Soil
This is the life many Israelis lead today. They cannot even enjoy the landscape of their own country without fearing for their lives.
These attacks are encouraged by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, who has authorized government payments to terrorists and their families.
Abbas claims those killed trying to carry out these attacks are actually martyrs — not terrorists.
The Palestinian leader also recently gave a speech in which his vision of the future for Israel was very clear. “We shall remain, and nobody can remove us from our homeland,” he said. “If they want, they themselves can leave. Those who are foreign to this land have no right to it. So we say to them: Every stone you have [used] to build on our land, and every house you have built on our land, is bound to be destroyed, Allah willing.”
This is the Palestine that both Omar and Tlaib defend — an entity that promotes open bounties on the citizens of one of our most cherished allies.
