Eliyahu Asheri, 18, of Itmer, is dead. He was shot in the head by his captors, the Popular Resistance Committee. That is right. This man, a teenager, a civilian who was NOT in the armed forces, was killed by monsters merely for existing. His crime was existing. I am shuddering right now at the eirie similarities between the hatred of Jews (yes, Jews, not just Israelis, see a recent public opinion poll of Muslims worldwide) at the moment, and the hatred during the time of the Holocaust. Why do I see such similarities? Oh, that's right, Yassir Arafat's mentor, Amin al-Husayni, the original leader of the Palestinians, assisted Hitler in his slaughter of the Jews. Let us take a minute to mourn the loss of this innocent child. UPDATE: Before I could even click "publish post," I read that another innocent Israeli civilian's body was found. The body of Noah Moscowitz, 62, of Rishon Lexion, was found today. This was a man who lived in Israel proper. When will the killing end? When will enough be enough?
