Arab Terrorists Attack Jerusalem's Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva: 8 Dead

( Two Arab terrorists infiltrated Jerusalem's Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva at around 8:30 Thursday night and murdered eight Jews. At least 10 people have been wounded; three are in critical condition, a fourth victim was wounded moderately and six others, lightly.

The attackers entered from two separate entrances to the yeshiva and opened fire on the students before one of them was gunned down himself by an armed civilian. Witnesses say that the attack began in the seminary's library with the terrorists spraying bullets in every direction.

The yeshiva student who killed the terrorist, 40-year-old Yitzchak Dadon, said that he shot the attacker in the head with his personal weapon, after which another armed civilian "finished him off." Asked by a Channel 2 TV reporter what weapon the terrorist had, Dadon said, "A Kalachnikov," and turning to the camera, he added, "The Kalachnikov that you gave him, President Peres...."

The second terrorist hid in the yeshiva building, with subsequent reports indicating that the attacker was killed by responding security forces. Police are deployed in the surrounding neighborhood, and scoured the yeshiva and connected buildings. Most students in the building were evacuated after taking cover in the yeshiva's bomb shelter, according to police spokesmen.

Fifty ambulances responded to the scene, which emergency responders have called "a major incident." The wounded were evacuated to Hadassah Ein Karem Hospital.

In Gaza City, Arab residents went out into the streets and fired rifles in the air in celebration of the attack against the Jews of Jerusalem.

Police forces are on heightened alert throughout the country.

The Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva is located near the entrance to Jerusalem, in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood. The yeshiva, founded by Rabbi Avraham Yitzchak Kook, is at the heart of the national-religious movement in Israel.

Comment: You are most probably aware of the terrorist attack 2 hours ago in Jerusalem. My advice is to ask as many people as possible to call:

1. the Israeli Embassy/ Consulate and demand that the Olmert government resign for its weakness in fighting terrorism as it must be done. It has literally invited Rice to take charge of the running of this government. She left Israel yesterday after initiating meetings between Olmert and Abbas, the Arafat protege. The joy and celebration of the Arabs was just flashed on tv. One of the suicide bombers came from the eastern section of Jerusalem. Imagine if that part were given to the Arabs who would use it as headquarters for such terrorism on the rest of the city.

2. the White House (202) 456-1111 and demand that the Bush administration stop interfering in Israel's internal affairs. Rice should not return to Israel!! She is arrogant and has appeased the Arabs consistently.
Point out that Israel's enemy is part of the same network of terrorism that the US is fighting. Al Qaeda is in Gaza and the West Bank in Arab communities there. We must repeat this message over and over again - just as the Arabs repeat their mantra. Know also that the Arab members of the Knesset

Hamas is determined to destroy Israel and is using weapons that we were told to give to the Abbas government ' to strengthen him'. Of course, Hamas inherited those weapons when Abbas and Fatah (also a terrorist thuggery) fled. Now those US weapons are in Hamas' hands - NICE! The Arab members of the Knesset (yes, this is a democratic country that allows the enemy to be represented in the Parliament) are advocates of Israel's destruction. One of them suggested that soldiers be kidnapped and now we have several in the hands of the barbarians. May they be safe.

Be polite but strong and speak or write with conviction. Remember that this is what the Islamicists have planned for the rest of the world! Don't imagine that anyone will be safe! Make your voice heard; don't leave the job to someone else.

Reports say that as well as 8 dead there are many wounded - some seriously. Pray for them.
