Yes, let's deal with this, Yariv Oppenheimer


Yariv Oppenheimer, General Director of Peace Now movement, is a man of strong convictions and strong opinions. His recent opportunity to go public with a strong opinion was re the two stabbing sprees by Palestinian martyrs-to-be - one in Jaffa, where a frenzied attack ended with one American visitor dead and ten other people (two Arabs included) wounded. The second attack, in Petah Tikva, was somewhat dryly summarized here:
An Israeli man who was stabbed multiple times Tuesday afternoon in a terror attack in Petah Tikva managed to remove the knife from his neck and use it to stab and neutralize his attacker, aided by the store owner, police said. 
What can I add to this? Only that we are used to different attitudes to such cases - from unbridled happy ululation from some Palestinian circles to the cautious "we don't condone but we understand..." from some members of the progressive left. Yariv Oppenheimer added  a new wrinkle to the case of Yonatan Azarihab (the man who killed the terrorist in Petah Tikva):

Translated, it says: "Both in Petah Tikva and in Jaffo, recorded clips show how neutralization becomes an execution without trial. In the current atmosphere no media outfit will dare to report and to deal with the subject".

Being a cautious fellow, one who prefers to let the emotions subside and to deal with any subject as cool headed as possible, I have waited a bit. Now I could proceed.

Mr Oppenheimer, you wanted to deal with the subject, so let's deal with it:

You are one sorry son of a bitch, Yariv Oppenheimer.

That's it, the subject is dealt with.
