Shame on the Excalibur.....
The student newspaper at York University in Toronto prints an opinion piece praising the suicide attack on the Yeeshiva in Jerusalem.
It’s no wonder why Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav Kook School was attacked.Of course, they are free to publish whatever they want. But, what does it say about their judgement by printing such an article? I am sure that Osama Bin Laden and anybody from Al-Qaeda would love a forum in the Excalibur....but that doesn't mean they should print it.
I’m not surprised that Ala’a Hisham Abu Dhaim targeted Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav Kook School in Jerusalem.
Yeshivat Merkaz HaRav Kook School is described as a religious camp that links Judaism with Zionism. This makes it very different from any other anti-Zionist Orthodox school in Israel.
This institution established a program known as the “yeshivat hesder”. The word “hesder” means the settlement of a curriculum that combines Talmudic studies with military service.
In other words, this school has direct connections with the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), and its graduating students are those whom are committing a holocaust in Gaza in the Palestinians eyes.
This school strengthens the idea on its students and graduates of the land of Israel from the Euphrates to the Nile, as well as the need to make this land a “religious land,” which means there should not be any right to return for the Palestinians that were expelled from their land.
The school has around 500 students aged 18 to 30. Many of its past graduates went on to found other similar religious schools in the West Bank settlements which are described as racist among the Orthodox Jews.
In the eyes of the Palestinians, it was the IDF who started the holocaust in Gaza, and the Palestinians are simply targeting the source of that attack.
