Someone needs to explain to me in elementary terms why terrorists deserve any semblance of civil treatment.
Four worshipers at a Jerusalem synagogue were murdered early today by a couple of terrorists. Israeli police shot them to death at the scene of the carnage they left behind.
Three of the victims were American-Israelis, one was a British-Israeli. They were worshiping in peace when two Palestinian cousins wielding axes and knives began slashing them to death.
And who do you suppose has endorsed this vicious act?
Among others was Hamas, the terrorists who run the so-called government in Gaza, the place that keeps originating attacks on Israelis civilians.
Does this make any sense to anyone?
The terrorists complain about Israeli settlements in territory captured by Israel during the Six-Day War of 1967. So rather than talk to the Israeli government, they choose to bomb innocent victims, shoot them dead in the street or, in the case of the attack today in Jerusalem, slash them to death in a horrific attack.
Israeli officials vow to respond with all necessary force to put down this latest round of violence.
How in the world can one justify this? How in the same world can one criticize a nation for trying to protect its citizens from this kind of barbarism?
