Two years have passed since one of the most horrific terrorist massacres ever: the barbaric and cold-blooded slaughter of five members of the Fogel family at Itamar, two parents – Ehud and Ruthie Fogel – and three young children – Yoav (11), Elad (4) and Hadas (three months). The murderers, two Arabs from the neighboring village of Awarta, had invaded their home on Sabbath eve.
Arutz Sheva spoke to Haim Fogel and Rabbi Yehuda Ben Yishai, the fathers of Ehud Fogel and Ruthie Fogel, respectively. Listening to their calm and thoughtful words, spoken as their emotions of grief are obviously being held back, one plainly sees the chasm between Jewish culture and Arab Islamic culture. Both fathers embody, in word and deed, the Jewish spirit of intelligent yet unshakable faith, patient perseverance and creativity, offering stark contrast to the wailing, cursing and threats that are often typical of Arab Muslim mourning.
Israel’s enemies should look at Arutz Sheva’s interviews with Haim Fogel and Rabbi Yehuda Ben Yishai and understand why they have no chance in the world of defeating the Jewish nation.
