Jerusalem Terror Attack: Israel’s Ambassador to U.S. Speaks, Netanyahu Acts

Pray, not only for the peace of Jerusalem, but for their salvation as well… “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!”  Matt 23:37

JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu vowed to “respond harshly” after five people — three of them U.S.-born rabbis — were killed in a synagogue Tuesday by two Palestinians wielding meat cleavers, an ax and a gun.

Netanyahu immediately ordered the demolition of the attackers’ homes, as well as homes of Palestinians who carried out several recent attacks.

Palestinians celebrated the men, they call martyrs, in the worst terrorist attack to hit Jerusalem in years; where relations between Arabs and Jews have been deteriorating for weeks over a contested shrine holy to both Jews and Muslims.
