Jerusalem Synagogue Attack: 7 Dead, 10 Wounded

Holocaust Remembrance Day Jan 27

On Friday, a 21-year-old terrorist initiated a Jerusalem Synagogue attack that killed 7 and wounded 10. Later, a second attack on Israelis by a 13-year-old terrorist opened fire on a Jewish man and his son in the old City of David. January 27 was International Holocaust Remembrance Day according to the UN. It was the day that the Auschwitz-Birkenau Concentration Camp was liberated in 1945. The United Nations designated International Holocaust Day in 2005.

Update: Israel has decided to expedite gun licenses in an effort to give more people access to weapons for self-defense. (Fox) The exact opposite of the American response.

The terrorist, identified as Kheiry Alkam, arrived at the first attack in the Neve Yaakov neighborhood at around 8 p.m. local time on Shabbat (the time of Jewish worship from Friday night to Saturday morning).  He opened fire, killing 7 and wounding 10. Police chased him and neutralized the threat. In the ensuing investigation, the terrorist’s parents and about 40 others were arrested. Why? Because of the Palestinian practice of celebrating murder and the giving out of sweets to thank the terrorists for killing Jews.

The second attack in which a man and his son were shot by a young teenager, identified as Muhammad Aliyat. Both father and son are listed in critical but stable condition. Members of the group attacked fired back and wounded the suspect, but his condition is not known at this time.

The response of Israelis is sometimes the opposite of the response of a US administration: instead of demanding gun control, some Israelis suggested loosening gun restrictions so more people could defend themselves against terrorists.

The attack came days after an IDF raid on a terror cell inside the Jenin Refugee camp in which 9 Palestinians were killed and around 30 injured.  Abbas was pressured to remove any security agreement with Israel because of it, which he reportedly did. Retaliation is the method of handling incidents, regardless of the provocation. The attack on the Jerusalem synagogue is the result of such retaliation.

Cheering the murderous actions of terrorists is why peace in this region of the world will not likely occur anytime soon. Their hatred of Jews is deep, and the belief in that hatred cannot be removed by any action of a government. The Jerusalem synagogue attack is just a symptom of a more insidious problem.
