Killer of Esther Horgen, mother of six and wife of Binyamin Horgen was arrested on December 24 and confessed to the brutal murder of Esther Horgen. Muhammad Mruh Kabha from the village of Tura al Gharbiya, stated he sought to avenge the death of a prisoner Kamel Abu Waer who died from cancer while in Israeli custody. Kamel Abu Waer a member of Tanzim, an armed group of the Palestinian Fatah movement was serving multiple life sentences for his involvement in attacks on Israeli civilians during the second intifada.

I shed no tears for Kamel Abu Waer nor for Muhammad Mruh Kabha.

On the contrary, I feel only disdain and revulsion for these two criminals and all their ilk. Love has its place, as does hate. Mercy also has its place, alongside revenge.

Its a mitzvah to take the revenge of the righteous and humble from the evildoer. Muhammad Mruh Kabha and all like him should taste Jewish revenge and know we do not collaborate with the murderers of our people.

To allow these evil people to kill Jews and then escape the consequences of their actions while they live at Jewish expense in Jewish Jails is an act of collaboration with the slayers of Jews.

We see every day the consequences of our feeble actions in confronting our enemy’s violence towards our people when we fail to act upon the advise given in the Midrash; “He who is compassionate to the cruel will ultimately become cruel to the compassionate”

Jewish Blood is spilt in Jewish streets and we ask how can we stop this madness?

Easily by foregoing compassion towards the cruel killers of Jews and then we will be kind to our people and bring an end to the tears of all the mothers, fathers, husbands, wives and precious little children that have and will suffer tragedy at the hands of those who hate us while we allow them to walk the Land of Israel free to do their worse.
