Ax-wielding savages attacked a Jewish couple in Israel. The man, retired IDF colonel Seraiah Ofer, was bludgeoned to death; his wife escaped. Where is the worldwide outrage? Where are American Jewish leaders saying, "never again!" They are partnering with our executioners in an inter-faith dialogue ruse, and the world silently nods. The same silent nod they gave Hitler for years.
Islamic Jew-hatred, it's in the quran.
Five Palestinians arrested for Jordan Valley killing" Times of Israel (thanks to Zeidi)Housing minister says he will bolster settlement after retired IDF colonel Seraiah Ofer bludgeoned to death outside home by ax-wielding attackers
Five Palestinians were arrested Friday in connection with a suspected terror attack in the northern Jordan Valley in which a retired IDF colonel was bludgeoned to death overnight. The arrests came after several hours of searches and roadblocks by security forces in the area, following the early-morning killing.
IDF Chief Benny Gantz called the attack “serious” and President Shimon Peres said “no one will rest” until the perpetrators were caught.
Officials initially said they were not sure whether the attack was nationalistically motivated or criminal in nature. However, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, “We strongly believe this was a terror attack.”
Seraiah Ofer, 61, was beaten to death by men wielding metal bars and axes outside his home in the Brosh Habika vacation village, which he owned and operated, at about 1 a.m. Friday.
His wife, Monique Mor, 51, managed to escape. She was lightly injured on barbed wire before reaching a nearby highway, where she flagged down a car for help.
The attack, coming on the heels of a number of isolated incidents over the past month, drew harsh responses from politicians.
Housing and Construction Minister Uri Ariel, from the nationalist Jewish Home party, said in a statement Friday morning he would work to “enlarge and strengthen” settlement in the area.
“This is the proper Zionist response to a revolting murder,” Ariel said.
