"Quem deus vult perdere, dementat prius" is a Roman proverb (in Latin) which means "Whom the gods would destroy, they first make crazy." Yesterday a Palestinian Arab opened fire on a group of young people studying in a library/study hall in a yeshiva in Jerusalem. The names of the casualties were just released. The murdered were identified as Yohai Lifshitz, 18, of Jerusalem; Yehonatan Yitzhak Alder, 16, of Shilo; Yonadav Haim Hirshfeld, 19, of Kochav Hashahar; Neria Cohen, 15, of Jerusalem; Roy Rot, 18, of Elkana; Segev Peniel Avihail, 15, of Neveh Daniel; Avraham David Mozes, 16, of Efrat; and Doron Mahareta, 26, of Ashdod.
Below is the Israeli TV coverage of our Palestinian neighbors celebrating the slaughter of our children. Grownups are handing out candies to passing cars and tossing "sweets" to crowds of happy, cheering kids. The audio is in Hebrew, but I don't figure that the major News Networks are likely to be showing folks outside of our area what is really going on. Just click to play.
