One policeman was killed and three others were injured Monday morning as Palestinians opened fire at a police car near the West Bank settlement of Beit Hagai. The officers were making their way to Hebron from the southern city of Beersheba. The police have cleared for publication the name of the policeman killed in a shooting attack south of Hebron: The killed officer was identified as Command Sergeant Major Yehoshua (Shuki) Sofer, 39, who had served in the Hebron region for 14 years.
Policeman’s murder solved. The Shin Bet has arrested a Hamas cell believed to be behind the shooting attack in which Yehoshua Sofer was killed in June, it was cleared for publication on Monday. One of the cell’s heads said in his interrogation that just two weeks before he embarked on the attack, his six-year-old daughter was hospitalized in Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, where she had a tumor removed from her eye. The operation was funded by an Israeli organization.
This story should be publicized to the greatest degree possible. I originally saw this story here. If a man kills Israelis a mere TWO WEEKS after an Israeli organization pays for a tumor to be removed from her eye at an Israeli hospital, what is the message we should take from this?
If he feels we should all be dead, why are we saving his family? Is there no quid pro quo at all?? He doesn’t have to love Israel for saving his child (I guess), but can he not personally kill Israelis?
Where is the gratitude?
