Terror Attack in the Shomron. Jews killed.

It's very late now, close to 3:30 AM since we changed the clocks tonight in Israel. I'm sitting at my laptop wanting to spill my guts into my blog, and rant and rage at the terrorist attack in the Shomron this evening.

A terrorist dressed up as a Chareidi, Ultra Orthodox Jew, hitchhiked with a car full of Jews who were just trying to do the right thing. Bus service in the Shomron is pretty sparse, and eveyrone gives hitchhikes to everyone...sort of like instant gemillut chasten. At the entrance to the Kedumim settlement, the terrorist detonated himself, blowing up the car and killing 4 Jewish civilians.

It hurts so much going to funerals of terror victims...and I've gone to far too many over the past 15 years.

Yet, I need to look deep down inside me, find the strength, and continue on with determination. This won't deter us from continuing to live our lives here; it only strengthens our resolve, and we aren't leaving.

I knew the driver.

Four words that make so much difference. It's cowardly and wrong for people to pretend to be what they are not. We all feel for you. Baruch Dayan HaEmet, may you be comforted among the mourners of Zion.

So sorry to hear about your loss. I had a friend murdered by a pigua less than a month after I made aliya. I tremped for 5 years and the feeling that this wonderfully Israeli form of trust and camraderie has been violated just makes me cry.

But, but, but, but I thought they were observing a "ceasefire", or that there was a "lull", or something. I thought Sharon had succesfully defeated the intifada, and it was all over now, and it was time to start building casinos again. I mean, that's why the electorate turned to economic issues, right? Because the war is over. This must be true; after all, Brian, er, I mean al Ard and the New York Times told me.

I feel your anger. It makes me want to scream. It makes me want to hurt them, but we cannot stoop to their animalistic level.
Baruch Dayan emet, I'm sorry for your loss. It was a loss to the whole klal yisroel.

Rebecca: You hit the nail on the head -- the loss of any Jew is a tragedy for Klal Yisrael.

I hope to blog more about this soon.
