Hamas Terror Attack Kills Pregnant Woman, 73-Year-Old Rabbi During ‘Ceasefire’ - Daniel Greenfield


by Daniel Greenfield

And so the "ceasefire" occasionally interrupted by Islamic terror attacks continues.


A surreal headline from the Jerusalem Post reads, “Israel-Hamas War Day 55: Three killed in Jerusalem attack, ceasefire continues”.

But we know what a ceasefire really means. So do most of the screaming terror supporters crowding the streets to demand a “ceasefire”.

A ceasefire or a truce with Islamic terrorists means that they get to attack and you don’t get to fight back.

That was the case on Oct 7. And it was the case once again on Nov 30.


Three people were killed and six other people were wounded in a shooting attack at the entrance to Jerusalem on Thursday morning, according to emergency services.

The murder victims were Rabbi Elimelech Wasserman, 73, a member of the rabbinic court of Ashdod; Chanah Ifergan, 67, a school principal in Ramat Bet Shemesh; and Liba Dickman, 24, a pregnant preschool teacher in Bet Shemesh.

According to police, two terrorists from east Jerusalem carrying an M16 and a handgun arrived at the Givat Shaul junction near the entrance to Jerusalem on Thursday morning and began firing at civilians at a nearby bus stop. The two terrorists were shot and killed by security forces and a civilian who was at the scene.

The two terrorists were identified as Murad and Ebrahim Nemer, brothers from Sur Baher in east Jerusalem who were affiliated with the Hamas terrorist movement. Murad was imprisoned in Israel from 2010-2020 due to his intention to conduct terrorist operations in Gaza and Ebrahim was imprisoned in 2014 due to terrorist activity.




Biden’s new appointee, Ambassador Jack Lew, posted a typical non-condemnation of “brutal violence” rather than Hamas or Islamic terrorism, tweeting, “abhorrent terrorist attack in Jerusalem this morning. We unequivocally condemn such brutal violence. My thoughts are with the families of the victims and I offer my sincere condolences to all those affected.”

These are the consequences of a deal with Hamas. When you make a deal with terrorists, you get terrorism. And it’s much harder to climb out of that deal than it was to climb into it. The terrorists are free to do whatever they want. They keep whatever deals they want to whatever extent suits them without forgetting their larger mission of exterminating non-Muslims.

And so the “ceasefire” occasionally interrupted by Islamic terror attacks continues.
