Välsignad påskhelg!

 I kväll inleds firandet av den judiska påsken till minnet av uttåget ur Egypten. Den kanske märkligaste och viktigaste händelsen i Israels folks historia. Det judiska folket som var slavar blev fria och fick genom Guds ingripande möjlighet börja vandringen mot det land deras fäder fått till arvedel.

Judarnas fortsatta historia ledde ett par tusen år senare till den märkligaste och viktigaste händelsen i hela mänsklighetens historia. Messias, Jesus föddes och tog påskalammets plats, på samma sätt som lammet i Egypten räddade från döden räddar nu Guds lamm människor från dödens och syndens våld och befriar oss.

Israels folk blev förvirrade och besvikna över att befrielsen innebar en ökenvandring där förhållandena tidvis kunde vara svårare än under tiden i Egypten. Samma förvirring kan drabba oss som befriats av Guds lamm, Jesus, inte heller vi kommer direkt in i det förlovade landet.

Israels folk fick ändå efter en tid komma in i sina fäders land. På samma sätt får vi lita på att vi kommer att nå fram till målet.

Därför får vi också denna påsk låta hoppet leva, kanske nästa år i Jerusalem.

Palestinska reaktioner på terrorattacker

 PA sides with terror organizations – rejects Israel’s right to stop terror (PMW)

It only took only two days for Palestinian Media Watch’s assessment to be proven correct - that Mahmoud Abbas’ condemnation of the recent Palestinian terror was “insincere,” and not an honest statement rejecting terror.

On Saturday morning, Israeli soldiers killed three Palestinian terrorists who were on their way to an Israeli city to commit a major terror attack. One of the terrorists Seif Abu Libdeh wrote a long farewell letter - which he read in front of a camera and then placed in their car, assuming it would be found by the Israeli army after their attack. The Islamic Jihad terror organization publicized the video after the terrorists were killed.

In the note he wrote of his motivation to commit a terror attack and die as a Martyr:“I, the humble servant of Allah… Seif Hifzi Abu Libdeh... I surrender my soul easily for the sake of Allah, for the liberation of Muslim Palestine, from the defilement of the attacking Jews.”

In spite of this clear evidence that these men were terrorists with intention to murder Israelis, the two top PA leaders, Chairman Mahmoud Abbas (via his spokesman) and Prime Minister Muhammad Shtayyeh both joined Islamic Jihad and Hamas in condemning Israel’s prevention of the terror attack, as a “premeditated attack,” an “extrajudicial murder,” a “horrific crime” and a “flagrant challenge to… international law”: 

Fatah Official Jamal Al-Huwail Praises 'Lone Lion' Who Murdered Four Israelis In A Beersheba Knife Attack: It Proves Palestinians Believe In Palestine From The River To The Sea (MEMRI)

In a March 23, 2022 interview on Mayadeen TV (Lebanon), Palestinian politician Jamal Al-Huwail, a member of Fatah's Revolutionary Council, praised the March 22 stabbing attack in Beersheba, Israel, in which four Israeli civilians were killed and several wounded. He said that Israelis call such attackers "lone wolves," but that Palestinians call them "lone predatory lions." Al-Huwail also said that the Zionists fear that such attacks will serve as a model and spread to other districts. In addition, he said that the fact that this attack took place within Israel's 1948 borders in "the very heart of this criminal Zionist occupation" is significant because it proves that in the consciousness of the Palestinian people, "Palestine still stretches from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea," despite the 70-year "occupation."

Palestinian Islamic Scholar Mohammed Afeef Shadid: Those Who Celebrate Mother's Day Have Lost Their Identity; We Should Celebrate Women Like Safiyya, The Prophet's Companion Who Killed A Jew, Rather Than Mothers Who Send Their Daughters To Mingle With Co-Eds At University (MEMRI)

Palestinian Islamic scholar Mohammed Afeef Shadid said in a mosque address that was posted on the Al-Aqsa Call YouTube channel on March 23, 2022 that people who celebrate Mother's Day "have lost their identity completely." Shadid said that a mother who sends her daughter to university to dance and intermingle with men fails her daughter, while a son who only gives his mother a present on Mother's Day has failed his mother. He also said that the mothers worthy of reverence are women who resemble Safiyya bint Abd al-Muttalib, a companion of Muhammad who had killed a Jew who had been heavily armed and who even men could not fight.

British-Palestinian journalist Abdel Bari Atwan said in a video that was uploaded to his YouTube channel on March 30, 2022 that he is "truly happy" and "gloating" over the fact that four Arab foreign ministers attended the Negev Summit in Israel only for their celebration to be "ruined" by Ayman and Ibrahim Aghbariya, the two ISIS terrorists who carried out the March 27 shooting in Hadera, Israel that killed two Israeli Border Police officers and injured several others. He praised the Aghbariya cousins for being Palestinians from within Israel's 1948 borders, for using firearms, and for killing only Israeli police officers. He said: "There is loftiness and tolerance in saying: We are against the police, not the civilians." Atwan did not mention the fact that the Aghbariya cousins had pledged allegiance to ISIS.
