by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz,
Nick Berg, an American from Philadelphia was kidnapped and beheaded by Arabs in Iraq sometime in May.  The murderers filmed
the deed and proudly displayed the victim's severed head.

After killing six Israeli soldiers in an attack on an armored vehicle in Gaza on May 11, the Arabs near the scene of the carnage
gleefully held aloft human body parts in front of rolling cameras.  One of the Arab terrorist was later interviewed on film with
what apeared to be a human head in front of him.

The week before, after shooting at Tali Hatuel's car, causing it to skid and stop, Arab terrorists walked over to the vehicle to
finish the occupants off.  They looked at the heavily pregnant mother and her four no-doubt frightened girls; the youngest was
two years old.  And then shot them all.  At point-blank range.  With sadistic satisfaction, they systematically murdered Tali
Hatuel and her unborn son, as well as all of Tali's daughters -- Hila, age 11, Hadar, 9, Roni, 7, and two-year-old Meirav.

In Fallujah (Iraq), in March, crowds of townspeople dragged four American citizens out of their vehicles,  shot or beat them to
death, mutilated their bodies, dragged them through the streets, suspended them from a bridge, and burned them.

And they danced  and cheered.

With their children.

In Ramallah in 2000, two Israeli soldiers were kidnapped, beaten, stabbed countless times, had their eyes gouged out, and were
literally disemboweled and dismembered by an Arab lynch mob.

The people -- and I use the term loosely -- who carried out the initial beatings, threw one of the victim's down to the waiting
mob, where his face was further crushed with stones, feet, fists, and even a heavy metal window frame.  One Jew was set on
fire and dragged along the street as Arab onlookers danced and cheered.  Some of the butchers celebrated their crimes with the
victim's internal organs.  One of the killers, famously captured on film, proudly displayed his blood-soaked hands to the cheering
Ramallah crowd. 

And it gets worse.  In 2003, Arab parents in Gaza cheered again when their little children dressed up as members of the Ramallah
lynch mob, complete with hands painted blood red, for a kindergarten graduation ceremony.

During the lynching of the two IDF soldiers who had taken a wrong turn into Ramallah in 2000, one of the Arab murderers paused
in his savage beating to answer a cell phone belonging to one of the dying soldiers.

He told the worried voice on the other end of the line,
"We are killing your husband."

There is a Talmudic dictum that states,
"One who is merciful to the cruel, will ultimately cause cruelty to the merciful."

It seems to me that we, Israelis and Americans have proven the Talmudic sages absolutely correct.  Please, no more mercy.
