Of Course It’s a Terrorist Attack!: Lessons From the Muslim Stabbing Murder of an American in Israel
By now, you’ve likely heard about the Muslim Arab stabbing of an American tourist in Israel, while she was hiking in the Jerusalem forest near the border of the so-called West Bank. It’s tragic, and I pray for the family of Kristine Luken, who was murdered for daring to listen to Muslim Arabs “requesting water.” She is the latest American victim of Islamic terrorism. As you may also know, her friend, Kay Susan Wilson–a British immigrant to Israel–survived the terrorist attack by playing dead. But, it’s important to note, that Wilson was wearing a Jewish star around her neck, which the murderous Islamic terrorists saw and pulled on.
Kristine Luken, RIP: Latest American Murdered By Islam
Luken was a Christian missionary. (I do not know if Wilson was also one. She may be Jewish.) Luken was one of those who did not heed the call of the anti-Semites and scumbags of the world, and voted with her pocketbook and her feet in visiting Israel. And she didn’t die in vain, as she, hopefully, taught the world some important lessons:
* There is no difference between the Islamic killers in the Israeli woods and the Muslims in the United States and the rest of the Western world.
Despite media and PC Islamo-panderers’ claims, there is absolutely no difference between the two Arab Muslims who murdered the one woman and thought they murdered the other. If you think that couldn’t happen in the woods and parks of Dearbornistan or Al-Minneapolis/St. Paul, think again. It could and it will. There is no difference between the economic opportunities the Muslims get in Israel and those they get here. In fact, there is even more money and affirmative action thrown their way in Israel and the so-called “territories.” The Muslims in the offices of Ford Motor Company and on the streets of Canton and Hamtramck are no more “moderate” and “peaceful” than those in the woods of Israel who killed these two women over the weekend. There is nothing unique or special about those two men. And, in fact, a Muslim Arab from Lebanon, Houssein Zorkot, was doing training exercises for Hezbollah in a Dearborn park, not too long ago. I have no doubt he’d kill me, given the chance to get away with it.
Although one of the women in this sad story was proud to display her Star of David necklace, I routinely hide my Hebrew jewelry when entering most places where I believe Muslims are loitering and could hurt me. I’m a brave person and a proud Jew. But not a stupid one. It’s the real “don’t ask, don’t tell.” And there is no difference between what Muslims could do to me in Israel and what they can do to me here. In many ways, they are freer and have sanction to do more here. Remember, Muslims never succeeded in flying planes into buildings in Israel. Israel is not dumb enough to employ Muslims as immigration and airport screening officials. America is.
* This was an Islamic terrorist attack on non-Muslims, on Westerners, and on a woman the Muslims perceived as a Jew (whether she was or not).
Incredibly, Israeli police are just like American law enforcement authorities in this case. They say it’s “probably” a terrorist attack. But they are still “investigating” whether or not it was. PUH-LEEZE. It was an Islamic terrorist attack, without question, and the Jewish star around the neck of one of the women was seized upon by these modern-day Nazis. They thought this woman–and perhaps both of the women–were Jews, and certainly, they knew they were Westerners.
* Westerners continue to engage in dangerous political correctness toward Muslims. And it literally will kill them.
These women–with all due respect–were too nice. Their experience is an allegory for what typically happens with us, Westerners. We want to be nice. We don’t want to be seen as bigots or inhumane. And, so, we throw all caution to the wind and bend over backwards to be kind to Muslims, who literally stab us in the back for doing so. These Muslim Arabs asked the women for water, and the women listened to their request, getting stabbed in return. If I saw two Arab Muslims anywhere near me in a secluded area of Israel, I would assume the worst and run like hell. I certainly wouldn’t give them the time or close proximity to ask me for water. And I’d never spare them a drop. I wouldn’t even hear their request or spend a second to think about it. I know my life might depend on it. That’s where these women acted like typical dhimmis. They didn’t initially assume the worst and, out of the goodness of their heart, got murdered.
Even the survivor’s description, from her hospital bed, is too nice. Although she says “it was clear they came to kill us,” she describes the savage Muslim attacker as behaving “like a gentleman”:
“I had a Star of David hanging on a chain around my neck,” Wilson told Haaretz. “He took it off like a gentleman and then turned me around and stabbed in the place where the Star of David had been.”
The woman says that they went off the trail, sat on a hill, when the Arab Muslims approached them and asked in Hebrew for water. The woman said she wanted the men to leave and said, “Yalla bye.” “Yalla” means “go” or “let’s go” in Arabic.
I had a similar experience, once, when I was on a tour of the so-called West Bank on one of my trips to Israel, and it was because I was in a location I did not want to be in. It was my last day in Israel. I wanted desperately to see “Kever Rachel,” the tomb of Rachel, but every day of the trip, the so-called “West Bank” was closed due to Arab Muslim uprisings. Finally, on the last day, it was safer and opened up. The only tour available, that day at the last minute, was Gallilee Tours, a Christian tour. I didn’t know that this was the tour because my sister’s college friends–who were staying at the same hotel as me–booked us and I just followed.
After Rachel’s Tomb, we went to Bethlehem. I did not want to get off the bus, but we were forced to, out of safety concerns. Walking in a town square, an Arab merchant–an older man–kept trying to sell me postcards. I kept saying, “Leh” (“no” in Arabic) to him, and he wouldn’t listen. Finally, I said, “Yalla” He responded by pulling a knife on me. I immediately ran and screamed, “Shotrim! Shotrim!” (Hebrew for police or security). A ton of Israeli soldiers and police pounced on the guy. But this was in the middle of main street Bethlehem, not the forest, where police and soldiers are nowhere nearby.
* Israel is still one of the safest tourist destinations in the world, safer than many places in America.
Don’t let this story scare you out of going to Israel as a tourist and visitor. I feel safer walking the streets of Jerusalem (well, the West side of Jerusalem, which is not infested by Muslims), than the streets of Dearbornistan, Detroit, Miami, Los Angeles, and New York.
These women made a mistake hiking alone there. I would not hike alone in the forests or woods of Israel. . . or the parks of Dearborn or Birmingham, Michigan. It is like hiking alone in the jungle, where you might encounter a poisonous snake or other deadly animal. Or it’s like a White (or Black) person hiking in South Central Los Angeles or Detroit’s Six Mile Road.
Whenever I’ve traveled in Israel, it’s with someone holding a gun or rifle. That’s typical. It’s not because the streets of Israel are dangerous. They are not. They are safer than the streets of suburban Detroit. It’s because we know Muslims are hiding in remote locations looking to kill people. They are like vampires (with apologies to vampires), regularly seeking Western prey.
Your odds of this happening to you as a tourist in Israel don’t even come close to the odds of you getting hit by a car crossing a street in your neighborhood. Israel is safe, it is fun, and it will change your life. Just don’t go hiking alone in a secluded area.
Kudos to Ms. Wilson for using her own knife to stab one of the attackers in self-defense. It probably helped save her life and might help identify him.
Again, I feel for these women and I pray for them and their families.
Kristine Luken, Rest In Peace.
