The Palestinian Authority has honored those who perpetrate stabbing attacks against Jews as “heroes” and “martyrs”—despite the fact that victims of those attacks are almost always small children, old women, and other innocent civilians. Even worse, the justification for these terrorist atrocities is suppression of religious liberty—not its defense.

On Jerusalem’s Temple Mount, site of the ancient Temples described in the Bible, only Moslems are allowed to pray; any worship or prayer by Jews or Christians is strictly forbidden, with prayer books and hymnals confiscated or destroyed by Islamic authorities.

The present Palestinian rage has nothing to do with defending Al Aqsa Mosque, which has never been violated or threatened, but with worries that some Jews and Christians might someday say their own prayers nearby. Meanwhile, the Israeli government has constantly re-affirmed its commitment to the status quo with its current ban on non-Moslem prayers.

Palestinian hysteria (and this latest wave of terror attacks) shows contempt for decency, liberty and sanity as well.
