ISRAEL: 7 Breslov Hassidim shot by Arab Terrorist

Near Kever Yosef, in Schechem
7 Breslov hassidim were shot by an Arab terrorist near Kever Yosef, in Shechem. Two of the injured are listed in serious condition.

Police arrested 9 other Jews for the crime of praying at the holy site, and upsetting the local Arabs. According to Israeli law Jews are forbidden to enter into territories which have been surrendered to the Arabs.

It may come as a surprise to the Israeli government, but many people do not acknowledge every moronic agreement it signs, particularly those that are violated by the Arabs immediately after. Why should they change their religious traditions because some naïve patsy who was elected largely because of the Arab vote was suckered into giving away Jewish land? Arafat is indeed, as the Israeli government has stated, irrelevant, but so are the mindless treaties and agreements signed with him, including the surrender of Kever Yosef in Shechem.
