The Israelis are forced to pay heed to the nonsense coming from the US administration, knowing all too well that it will end up with more Jews being murdered. So yes, it shouldn’t come as a shock that another Jew is murdered in cold blood, this time a Rabbi. Obama’s policy of appeasing the Arabs will mean more dead Jews, and remember folks, Obama and his advisors were warned that this would happen if the roadblocks were removed, and yet they applied pressure for them to do just that.

Son of shooting victim: Revenge is not for Jews
Hundreds of mourners gathered in Jerusalem on Friday morning to bury Rabbi Meir Hai, a father of seven who was shot dead by Palestinians near his home in the West Bank a day before.
In eulogizing his father, Hai’s 16-year-old son Eliyahu urged mourners not to consider seeking revenge for the attack. “The difference between us and them is that we are people, Jews, holy,” he said.
Hai, a resident of the West Bank settlement Shavei Shomron, was killed in a shooting attack on a road near his home. He was laid to rest on Jerusalem’s Mount of Olives.
The Al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades and the Islamic Jihad have both claimed responsibility for the attack.
Hai, a 40-year-old teacher and father of seven, was killed when militants opened fire at his car on the road between Shavei Shomron and the nearby settlement Einav in the West Bank. He was alone in his car.
An IDF officer said that in the past week a roadblocks had been removed on the road Hai was driving on, about 150 meters from where he was shot.
The roadblock, known as the barrels roadblock, monitored the traffic around Nablus in the direction of Tul Karm, the officer said. The perpetrators are believed to have fled through where the roadblock used to be to Asira al-Shamaliyah.
