The Jerusalem Post reported:
At least seven people were killed and another 10 injured in a terror attack at a synagogue in the Neve Yaakov neighborhood of Jerusalem on Friday evening.
The terrorist, a resident of Shuafat, opened fire at people leaving the synagogue after Friday night prayers, and was then killed by security forces after attempting to escape in a car. The terrorist was reportedly a member of Hamas.
One of the attendants of the synagogue said that the police didn’t arrive at the scene for 20 minutes, they didn’t believe the callers and thought the noise came from shots in the air from nearby east Jerusalem neighborhoods. (…)
A 40-year-old woman was confirmed to be among the dead.
Some of the bodies of those killed were have still not been moved from the scene of the crime.
MDA paramedics are providing treatment at the scene of the attack. United Hatzalah said that they are providing treatment for dozens in a state of shock on location.
Palestinian terrorist groups hailed the cold-blooded killing of Jewish worshipers. The Israel Hayom newspaper reported:
The spokesman for the Hamas terror group called the Jerusalem attack a “heroic act of revenge for the massacre in Jenin.” [A reference to Thursday’s IDF raid against a Islamist terror cell in West Bank.]
A senior Islamic Jihad official in the Gaza Strip praised the attack: “The shooting is a sign that the West Bank and the Gaza Strip are united against the Israeli enemy.”
A video clip on Twitter showed Palestinians in East Jerusalem distributing sweets to ‘celebrate’ the murderous act.

The synagogue attack comes as Israel faces a surge in Palestinian terror attacks. On Thursday night, Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense system intercepted two Hamas rockets fired from Gaza.
Palestinian terrorist groups vowed revenge after Israeli security forces on Thursday busted a Palestinian Islamic Jihad terror cell in the West Bank town on Jenin, killing 10 terrorists involved in planning imminent attacks inside Israel.
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Taking Gaza as a example, it is 17 sq miles with a population 590.4K people.
Clearly, existing policy has not been effective, they keep committing acts of war. Punishment’s needs to be far greater, say 100,000 to one. That would get their attention. Lay waste to about 4 square miles.
Jews deserve to live in peace, that is not going to happen as long as they are not subdued.
Now do Al Aqsa.
Bloodsuckers. Haters. Cowards. Child abusers. No wonder so many progressives support them. Like Ken Roth!
Hamas claims that this is a battle to the death.
Then it will have to be the death of the Palestinians.
At some point, the Hamas-Nazi subhuman savages will launch rockets with chemical or biological weapons.
At that point, Israel will have no choice – no choice – but nuke Gaza. But the Pali-Nazis are so drowning in their crazed Jew-hatred, they won’t care. They will celebrate their mass sacrifice.
Religion of peace!
Yet, the vile Dhimmi-crats and European, Leftist dhimmis continue to fund, enable, show deference to and fallacious cast as alleged “victims” these reprobates, whose land was allegedly “stolen” by a people who’ve been living in the middle east for millennia before the founding of the wretched, supremacist, totalitarian and belligerent ideology of “Submission.”
Arab Muslim, so-called “Palestinian” terrorism will markedly decline in frequency and scope when vile and morally feckless American Dhimmi-crats and European dhimmis stop enabling these idiots, stop giving them moral cover and stop allowing them to fallaciously play the alleged, aggrieved “victim.”
The only good terrorist is a dead terrorist
