So This is Peace?: Muslims Kill At Least TEN Jews, Wound 35 in Deadly Attack on Jewish School in Israel; UPDATE – Insider Source: New Hezbo Grp in Gaza Takes Credit
By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE #3: Carl in Jerusalem has video on the attacks ****
****UPDATE #2: Schlussel Lebanese Intelligence Sources: My sources say this attack was committed by a new Hezbollah-allied terrorist group in Gaza called Liberators of the Galilee Brigades/Martyrs of Imad Mughnieh and Gaza. My sources say that Al-Manar (Hezbollah TV) is declaring this, also. ****
**** UPDATE: Witnesses say one terrorist fired 500-600 bullets before he was shot. ****
I really wish Bush’s chickie Condi Clueless Rice would stay away from Israel and quit trying to force it into deals with Palestinian Muslim Nazis, as she did yesterday and today.
In the midst of her “peace” negotiations, today, Muslim Arab terrorists murdered at least TEN Jewish students at a Yeshiva [Jewish academy of higher learning].
And they didn’t pick this Yeshiva, the Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva (also spelled, “Mercaz HaRav”), by accident. Merkaz HaRav means “Center of the Rabbi,” or “The Rabbi’s Center,” as it was founded in 1924 in Jerusalem by Israel’s First, most famous, and most Zionistic Chief Rabbi, Rav Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook, who believed in a Zionist Jewish homeland in Israel, built by Jewish laborers (not Arab Palestinian imports).
Rav Kook was one of the most important figures in Zionism and the establishment of a Jewish state in Israel, especially among religious Jews. He believed in Jews doing manual labor and building and planting things, that it was good for them to not just be intellectuals but also manual laborers. I have many of Rav Kook’s books and books about him in my library of books from my late father.
The dead terrorists [CORRECTION: Turns out to be ONE terrorist] had explosive vests on, which, thankfully, they failed to detonate. And–no surprise–Palestinians danced in the streets to celebrate. Barbaric animals:
Two Arab terrorists infiltrated Jerusalem’s Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva at around 8:30 Thursday night and murdered eight Jews. At least six people have been wounded; three are in critical condition and a fourth victim was wounded moderately.
The attackers entered from two separate entrances to the yeshiva and opened fire on the students before one of them was gunned down himself by an armed civilian. Witnesses say that the attack began in the seminary’s library.
The second terrorist hid in the yeshiva building, with subsequent reports indicating that the attacker was killed by responding security forces. Police are deployed in the surrounding neighborhood, and scoured the yeshiva and connected buildings. Most students in the building were evacuated after taking cover in the yeshiva’s bomb shelter, according to police spokesmen.
Fifty ambulances responded to the scene, which emergency responders have called “a major incident.” The wounded were evacuated to Hadassah Ein Karem Hospital.
In Gaza City, Arab residents went out into the streets and fired rifles in the air in celebration of the attack against the Jews of Jerusalem.
Police forces are on heightened alert throughout the country.
The Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva is located near the entrance to Jerusalem, in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood. The yeshiva, founded by Rabbi Avaraham Yitzchak Kook, is at the heart of the national-religious movement in Israel.
Thanks to readers Ari and Emet M’Tsiyon for the tip.
Will this be the final straw for Ehud Olmert’s reign of insecurity and capitulation resulting in bloodshed and misery for innocent Israeli civilians? Or will it take more murders such as these for Israelis to finally take back their country?
Sadly, it will probably be the latter.
Please pray for these innocent victims of terrorism and their families.
