In my heart, I knew it.
This is Alaa Abu Dheim:
He is the terrorist responsible for the death of 8 young Yeshiva students in Jerusalem this week. He carried a blue Israeli identity card and came from east Jerusalem and he worked as a driver at the seminary. But here's a little something about him that you likely won't read about in the mainstream media:
... he was arrested by Israeli authorities four months ago and then released two months later.
I was on vacation when this happened, but as soon as I heard, in my heart, I knew that if I looked long enough and hard enough, I would find that the murderer was a recently released prisoner. As soon as I had access to my computer, well, it didn't take all that long to find that out.
Fact: More than 50 Israeli Arabs have been arrested over the past three years on suspicion of being involved in terror. Nearly half of them are Palestinians who have received a permit to stay in Israel and an Israeli identity card on the backdrop of their marriage to an Israeli Arab, and terror groups seek to recruit them due to their access to Israeli targets.
No word on what he was locked up for in the first place, anyone want to take a guess? Israel let this bastard go as a gesture of good will after Annapolis. He didn't have blood on his hands when they let him go, but thanks to the international community, he got another chance at it and he damn sure has blood on his hands now, along with everyone connected with Annapolis and his release.
Abu Dheim is a perfect example of what happens when Israel releases terrorists from its prisons, Ehud Olmert let him go and he went right back to trying to kill Jews. His victims:
They were identified as: Yohai Lifshitz, 18, from Jerusalem; Yonatan Yitzhak Eldar, 16, from Shilo; Yonadav Haim Hirschfeld, 19, from Kohav Hashahar, Neria Cohen, 15, also from the capital, Segev Peniel Avihail, 15, from Neve Daniel, Avraham David Moses, 16, from Efrat, Roee Roth, 18, from Elkana and Doron Meherete, 26, from Ashdod.
Ten other young men were wounded in the attack, seven remain hospitalized. The public is asked to pray for the recovery of: Naftali ben [son of] Gila from Sderot, Yonatan ben Avital, Shimon ben Tirza, Nadav ben Hadas, Reuven ben Naomi and Elchanan ben Zehava.
Abu Dheim pulled the trigger, but the deaths of these 8 young men have been caused by the Annapolis peace process, and the appeasement of a terrorist nation whose soldiers live in safety as citizens of the State of Israel. They have been armed by the international community who turns a blind eye to the murder of Jews and a deaf ear to the tears and sorrow they cause.
These are the faces of 177 other Jews, all of whom were murdered by palestinian terrorists after the terrorists were released from Israeli prisons. If terrorism was punishable by death, these innocent people would be alive today, as would the 8 young men that we mourn today. Sadly, in Israel only Nazis are eligible for the death penalty, a truly stupid policy when you consider the number of Nazis in Israel as against the number of terrorists.
Israel will never get any sympathy nor support from the international community. No matter what we Jews do - or don't do, those that hate us will always hate us and they will always find some rationalization or justification for terrorism against us and for the murder of innocents among us.
Bottom line, no one respects a victim. When Israel won the 1967 war, she had international support in her fight to stay alive. Today, well...
My heart hurts.

This particular legacy falls at the feet of George W. Bush and Condoleeza Rice at the behest of the United Nations, they all worked for Palestine and this is the Palestinian reward.

My heart and prayers go out to the family and friends of these young adults. My heart and prayers go out to Israel.

I'd like your permission to copy your composite photo of the eight boys.
Yonathan Yitzhaq Eldar HY"D (top left) was a student of mine for a while a few years ago. I just sat next to him in a ride.
I visited his family Sunday. I don't like looking at the photo, but I'd like to post it and credit you anyway, if I may.
