The Tragic Naming of a Baby for Terror, "Knife of Jerusalem" by his Palestinian Parents

How can humans, no matter what nationality, what religion, stoop so low as to name their new born infant "Knife of Jerusalem" in honor of the intentional murderers of other humans they live only a few kilometers from?

59 Israelis have been attacked savagely by knife-wielding Palestinians in the last month.

12 Israelis have been murdered, 19 seriously wounded. Palestinians have also thrown 377 molotov coctails and rammed Israeli civilians with their cars. Also horrific and evil.

But to come up close to a 13-year-old Israeli teen riding his bike and slash him with a knife, critically injuring him!

And then for a Palestinian mother and father to name their infant in honor of such horror, such evil?

His father Shebika states, “Allah has given me a new baby, and I’ve named him ‘Knife of Jerusalem’ after the intifada of the knives...
in support of the blood of the martyrs…
Giving him this name was the least I could do, even if many people don’t like it...Allah willing,
the third intifada will not stop.”

The infant's mother added, “in solidarity with our people in the West Bank. This is the least we can do for them.”

Where is the humanity of these two new parents?! Why are Palestinians turning so cruel, so heartless, so murderous?

Where is their empathy? Their compassion? Their humanity? Their common decency?

Yes, I know Palestinians are persecuted, abused, stolen from, lied to, and murdered. They suffer so much, too.

But their responding by murdering innocent Israelis with savage knife attacks isn't the way to respond.

Responding to evil with evil is NEVER right, or good, or Godly.

(We'll deal with the Israelis later, who are also guilty of murder, terrorism, injustice, theft, etc.)

And for attacking innocent humans, murdering some of them, leaving others in critical condition or at least hospitalized--

FOR THAT the knife attackers are praised by the leaders of Palestinians,
Fatah and HAMAS and other Palestinian organizations.

What has happened to us that we as a species are so callous that we would name a baby in honor of murderers?

Muslim Sheikh Muhammad Salakh preaches, “Restrain the victim while others attack him with axes and butcher knives. Do not fear what will be said about you. Oh men of the West Bank, next time, attack in a group of three, four, or five. Attack them in groups. Cut them into body parts.”

The "Ocean of Darkness" seems unrelenting...

Keep your lights shining,
