“We have discovered how to hit the Jews where they are most vulnerable. The Jews love life, so that is what we will take from them. We are going to win, because they love life and we love death.”
- Hassan Nasrallah, Secretary General of Hezbollah
Islamist murderers put their evil philosophy, as outlined by Nasrallah, into practice once again on Saturday when they murdered a Jewish family of five in Itamar, a West Bank settlement. Besides the father and mother, three of their six children, including a baby of three months, were stabbed to death. The ages of the other two offspring were 11 and three-years old. The monsters of nature who committed this attack are still being sought.
“This is one of the most brutal attacks we’ve ever seen,” said an Israeli army officer, adding the children “were literally slaughtered.”
Israel, naturally, is shaken by the attack, especially over the fact a three-month old baby was killed in such brutal fashion. The baby murder was called “something new,” even for a country that has experienced such a high level of Islamist terror attacks over the past decade. Many are left stunned, both inside and outside of Israel, struggling to make sense as to how anyone could slaughter a helpless, three-month old babe so cold-bloodedly.
The answer to this frightening question is to be found in the progression of Islamic terrorism. Rather than an anomaly, killing children and babies is actually the natural next step in its dark development. In her book, Death Orders: The Vanguard of Modern Terrorism in Revolutionary Russia, Anna Geifman, a professor of history at Boston College, explains the background of this disturbing evolution, saying the basis for all modern terrorist movements, especially of the three best known ones — Communist, Nazi and Islamic — is thanatophilia, or worship of death.
Like Nasrallah, the Islamic terrorists themselves do not hide the fact they are death worshippers and have often been explicit in their statements that they love death like Westerners love life. Geifman quotes Ali Benhadjj, the Islamist leader of Algeria, concerning what this violent, anti-life philosophy of hatred looks like when its followers put it into practice.
“Faith is propagated by counting up deaths every day, by adding up massacres and charnel-houses,” Benhadjj vividly stated.
The Soviet newspaper Pravda was just as explicit about the end result of the Communist death cult when it stated in 1920: “Those who replace us will have to build on the silence of the graveyard.”
The slaughter of the Israeli family on Saturday was actually more an example of thanatophilia than a political act. The five dead innocents were simply the latest blood sacrifices to the Islamists’ God of Death. Geifman writes that similar to the Islamist thanatophiles were the Thugs in nineteenth-century India who murdered thousands of unsuspecting travellers as human sacrifices to their death goddess, Kali.Originally published in frontpagemag.com
