This is the Knife

This is the knife, that didn't kill the soldier. This is the knife that didn't send an Israeli family into shock, despair, terror, grief.

This is the knife that symbolizes the hatred of a culture, of a woman who chose to attack a young man, perhaps 19 years old, perhaps 20 based solely on the fact that he was wearing a uniform, that he was a Jew.
This is just one of many knives that symbolize the successful training our sons and daughters receive in the army; that they can identify and stop; that the death reported in the news today is hers, and not his.

This is the knife that could have put my country into mourning. And this is the knife that ended a woman's life - not the bullet fired by soldiers.

This is the knife that symbolizes the shame of the Palestinian people; a knife that took a woman from her family. This is the knife that symbolizes cowardice - because too many Palestinians believe it is easier to stab than to talk; easier to murder than compromise.

This is the knife that failed to do anything because this is the knife that didn't kill our soldiers...this time.
