So this is kind of late, but I feel I should say a few things about the bombing in Dimona. There haven't been suicide bombings in a while in Israel, thank God, but sadly it happened just a few days ago.
The bomber managed to kill a grandmother who also happened to be bringing the light of science into the world as a physics professor at the local university:
Luckily, a heroic Israeli cop shot a second bomber dead before he could detonate another bomb.
Upon hearing the news of the grandmother's murder, Palestinians started throwing a party throughout the Gaza, handing out candy and flowers, much like they did after 9/11:
And people wonder why suicide bombers exist? They are national heroes for the Palestinians in their sick culture of life-hatred. Its hard to believe that Israelis are expected to make peace with these people, who are indoctrinated to hate their own life and Jews from birth.
Recently, an Israeli operation killed six Hamas gunmen in Gaza. It also apparently killed a teacher. ""What was the fault of a teacher, an emissary on a sacred mission?" said a Hamas Education Ministry spokesman.
Ahh...Taqqiyah at its finest.
So its not ok to target Arab teachers but it is ok to target Israeli physics professors?
Actually, Israel did not target the school. Associated Press Television News footage showed the school to be a series of huts in a rural area. A rocket-launching device was spotted between some olive trees, indicating militants had used the school for cover to launch attacks. This is of course a war crime, but what does it matter to Hamas?
The other day, the area where I live was hit by a tornado. Sirens were going off all night. It was pretty scary. I can't imagine living like that every day and every night, but people in Sderot have to deal with it...its amazing that most of them are still there. I guess they have nowhere else to go.
