On January 25, 2016, two terrorists went on a stabbing spree in Beit Horon, fatally stabbing Shlomit Kreigman, age 24, and seriously wounding another 58-year-old woman. The two terrorists were later shot and killed by a citizen and security guard. During the stabbing spree, the terrorists tried entering a grocery store but were stopped by the owner and a shopping cart.
After the two terrorists were neutralized, 3 pipe bombs they planted were found in the vicinity. This is just another example of why Israel cannot make peace with a people that are being taught by Palestinian Authority incitement and media to hate, terrorize and murder Jews. The Arab violence and terror wave that Jews are facing in Israel on a daily basis is akin to the epidemic of Islamic extremism that is growing worldwide. The incitement is the same, the hatred is the same and the outcome is the same.
When will the Israeli leaders wake up and really start curbing this violence? How many people have to die, heaven forbid, for the Israeli government to start taking care of its citizens? The truth is, we should not rely on any government or person to help us. As King David exclaimed so pointedly: “Do not trust in princes, In mortal man, in whom there is no salvation…… Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the Lord his God” – Psalms 146.
