The Council Has Spoken!! Winners for 3-19-2011

The Council Has Spoken!!

We had quite a week here at the Watcher’s Council! As more than one member remarked, picking whom to vote for this week was extremely difficult because the entries, both Council and non-Council were really that just good. And to top it all off, yours truly was faced with an internet outage that took me offline for a while and delayed this weeks results. But the votes have been cast, and the results are in for this week, carved eternally in the records of cyberspace.

In view of the high quality of the Council nominees, I’m very moved to see that this week’s winner was Horror Returns; Sleeping Israeli Family Murdered by Arabs, Including An Infant over at Joshuapundit. I frankly didn’t expect to win this week. Here’s an excerpt:

Paramedic Kabaha Muayua was among the first responders at the site and described the horrific scene he encountered.

“We could not help the first four stab victims. Following an inspection of the scene I spotted an infant of about three who still had a pulse. We engaged in lengthy resuscitation efforts but had to pronounce him dead,” he said. “The murder scene was shocking. Kids’ toys right next to pools of blood.”

I thought about this for a long time, but I decided to post these photos, even though they’re quite graphic. They were released with the permission of the family, who had the courage to allow this so that so you can see exactly what was done to the Fogels and what sort of enemies we are up against.They could be your family. {….}

‘Palestinian’ unelected Prime Minister Selim Fayyad said “…we categorically oppose violence and terror, regardless of the identity of the victims or the perpetrators.”

That, of course, was his way of equating the IDF with the murderers of the Fogel family.

And the White House essentially said almost the same thing: “There is no possible justification for the killing of parents and children in their home. We call on the Palestinian Authority to unequivocally condemn this terrorist attack.”

Needless to say, when the ‘Palestinians’ give honorary citizenship to child murderers and make them national heroes, ‘condemnation’ is pretty meaningless, especially in English.

You might also recall that the last the time ‘Palestinian Authority’ arrested terrorist murders, they freed them after keeping them in ‘jail’ for four months.

Netanyahu is going to have to make a decision. What comes first, protecting the people and the land of Israel or shuffling to President Obama’s fiddle? I appreciate his position, but the time for dancing on cracks is over. And if he continues to do it, the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria are going to take matters into their own hands, that I guarantee you.

We had a close match this week between two must read entries in our non-Council category. One was Mark Steyn’s Dead Jews Is No News, which concerned the media treatment of the murder of the Fogel family and the other was Sultan Knish’s An Open Letter To Harvey Weinstein , submitted by Right Truth.

Steyn’s piece was masterful, as always, but Sultan Knish’s was so good, so poignant that I actually sent him an e-mail telling him I wished I’d written it. And needless to say, it got my vote this week.

In ‘honor’ of the murder of the Fogels, the UN is showing a movie in its grand auditorium for the first time ever, a vicious piece of anti-Israel propaganda made by Harvey Weinstein based on the writings of his ‘Palestinian’ girl friend. Sultan Knish wrote an open letter to him about it, and I urge you to read it.

Here are this week’s full results:
