Yitzchak Dadon, a student at the Merkaz Harav Yeshiva, who heard gunshots, took his gun and ran to the roof waiting for the terrorist to emerge. When the terrorist did, Dadon shot him twice and killed him. But not before the Arab terrorist's shooting rampage left numerous Yeshiva students dead and wounded.
In a a radio interview, despite attempts to cut him off, Dadon stated that it was Peres that had armed the terrorists and Olmert wants to give them even more guns.
Asked by a Channel 2 TV reporter what weapon the Palestinian Authority terrorist had, Dadon said, “A Kalachnikov,” and turning to the camera, he angrily added, “The Kalachnikov that you gave him, President Peres...”
The dead include two 15 year olds, two 16 year olds and two 18 year olds, one 19 year old and one 26 year old
And now we see that immediately after Israel retreated from Gaza, terrorist attacks have once again intensified, as they always do. The harvest of death over the last two days can be placed directly at the feet of the EU and Condoleeza Rice and at Olmert's government and Shas' Ovadya Yosef who has kept them in power in exchange for 115 million dollars in blood money for Shas institutions.
The Medic's Tale
One medic arrived at the scene as gunfire was still being exchanged.
"The terrorist was shooting at us. We all hide under the cars, under the buses that were here.
"When we got in after the police guys sterilised the place, there was a terrible scene.
"We saw young guys, 15-, 16-year-old guys lying on the floor with their Bibles in their hands, all dead on the floor because the terrorist guys went inside the place and killed those eight or nine young guys who were only here learning in Jerusalem."
Yehuda Meshi Zahav, head of the Zaka rescue service, entered the library after the attack.
"The whole building looked like a slaughterhouse," he told the Associated Press news agency. "The floor was covered in blood. The students were in class at the time of the attack.
"The floors are littered with holy books covered in blood."
Students are reported to have jumped out of the building as the gunman opened fire.
Ortal Hadad, 23, said that the Israeli government needed to take a tougher line against the Palestinians, who she referred to as Arabs.
"We're too soft on the Arabs," said the student. "When we attack them the whole world gets angry. But when they kill us, everyone seems to think it's okay."
Palestinian militant groups, including Hamas, celebrated on Thursday an armed attack against a religious school in Jerusalem that killed at least eight Israelis and wounded seven. Militants fired in the air, threw firecrackers in the streets, and drivers pressed on their cars horns. Other Palestinians delivered candies and sweets in the streets.
Mosques loudspeakers in Gaza also broadcast verses of the Koran, the Moslems holy book, and said "we congratulate our people for the heroic and selective attack in Jerusalem."
