For those who do not know, Ari Fuld was a staunch Zionist and advocate for Israel. He was killed just yesterday by a Palestinian terrorist.
Fuld was considered by many as a hero for the cause. He is most recognized for putting himself in undesirable situations.
In this video, for example, Fuld can be seen at the border with Gaza, documenting on the movement of IDF soldiers towards the border:
Fuld was also well acknowledged for his debate skills. Here is a video of him challenging a left-wing Jewish man’s intellectual integrity:
He lived a hero, and he died a hero. A reservist in an IDF paratrooper’s unit, he was stabbed in the back by a Palestinian. As the Palestinian ran into a nearby village to stab more Jews, Fuld, with a knife in his back, drew his gun and shot at the Palestinian.
Collapsing shortly thereafter, and despite efforts to resuscitate him at the hospital, Ari Fuld was pronounced dead a few hours ago.
What disturbs me, equally, is that the terrorist organization that governs the West Bank, Hamas, hailed the Palestinian stabber as a hero. He was only 17-years-old.
The Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs released a statement condemning the attack, and asked why Hamas is enabled to continue poisoning the minds of the Palestinian youth.
Israelis never behave the way their surrounding neighbours do. What if they did? Is killing instead of offering medical treatment to the wounded (ie. For “Palestinians” or Syrians) acceptable? What about the notion of posing a threat to minority inhabitants instead of providing careers and government positions for Arab citizens in Israel who are not only afforded full equal rights that Jews maintain, along with the highest quality of life in and around the Middle East, but also, by far, the most rights?
The Land of Israel means equality for all
If Israel, at all, discriminated against its minority population the way that the world has demonized Jews and Israelis, Then there would be no Israel. If Israelis did not act the way they continue to, then Israel would just be another vacuum for Hamas, or another terrorist org, to take over and be “voted in”.
Israel is built on the fundamental beliefs in life and democracy and without Israeli commitment towards strength and prosperity, the region would continue to be just another anarchic and despotic wasteland in the Middle East.
*Disclaimer* You can watch the video of Ari being stabbed and then chasing the terrorist here *Warning, violence is involved*:
Ari the Lion
In brief, we pray for, and mourn with, Ari’s family who have been robbed of their hero, husband, and father.
The death of the Lion of Zion has sparked worldwide social media tributes, with comments coming from non-Jews around the world, to the Prime Minister of Israel.
פגשתי הערב את הוריו ואחיו המופלאים של גיבור ישראל הנפלא ארי פולד ז״ל. חיבקתי אותם בשם כל עם ישראל בעת יגונם הנורא. אנו חיים בזכות גיבורים כמו ארי. נזכור אותו תמיד pic.twitter.com/jdHlzz14w2
