Words! Words! Words! Abracadabra and "say your hail maries"

Yori Yanover of the Jewish Press has a point in his article What if Abbas Condemns the Murders and No One in the PA Hears It?
In any event, even that miserly, self righteous, immoral statement has gotten no mention in Palestinian reports today. WAFA, the official Palestinian news agency, only mentioned the two murders with a quote from Foreign Minister Riyad Malki:
“Malki expressed concern that Israel may use the killing of an Israeli soldier in Hebron on Sunday and another off duty soldier in Qalqilya two days earlier in order to discredit the Palestinian Authority.”
Various international "leaders" and wannabes have perfected the art of "saying the right thing" to protect themselves from our suspicions that maybe they're not quite the "good" people or allies they hope to be perceived as.  United States President Barack Hussein Obama always claims that he is a great friend of Israel while he promotes policies that weaken and endanger us.  Should we go for the words or the actions.

We don't have to look at the non-Jews for more examples.  J Street, the extreme Leftist anti-Israel lobbying group claims to be pro-Israel, even though it cares more about Arab rights than Jewish Rights and Jewish History.

Don't forget all of those "rabbinic" lobbying groups that support Arabs over Jews here in Israel.  Just because someone calls himself (or herself) a rabbi, doesn't mean the person is an expert in Jewish Law, Jewish History, Bible etc.  It also doesn't mean that the person lives by Torah Law, Shabbat, Kashrut etc.  So I really don't consider the opinion of some person who drives, cooks, sells, shops etc. on Shabbat or eats traif is an expert in Jewish morality.  So when they come to the nearby Arab villages to encourage the Arabs to destroy our agriculture and attack Jewish villages I see only enemies. They are Jewish enemies of the Jewish People.

So, if this is what our fellow Jews can do against us, I certainly don't think any formulistic "condemnation" of violence and murder by Abbas, Obama et. al. should be taken very seriously.
