Seven People Killed and Dozens Injured By Murderous Ambushes on Israeli Civilians

By SOP newswire2

Our hearts go out to the families of the seven people killed and dozens injured by Today`s murderous ambushes on Israeli civilians and soldiers near Eilat. These attacks should be a wake call to world leaders who continuously pressure the Jewish state to return to indefensible borders and to accept a two state solution with the Palestinian Authority, whose president cannot even set foot in Hamas-controlled Gaza", Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper dean and founder and associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish Human RightsNGO said.


Meanwhile, the Arab Spring has yielded a bonanza for terrorists in Gaza and the as Egypt opened its border with Hamastan and has been unable to control the Sinai from terrorist activities. Today`s attacks also underscore the dangerous folly that the unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state scheduled for the United Nations next month represents. Every nation that believes in secure borders for its own citizens should vote no for a unilateral state based on the indefensible, pre-1967 borders," Wiesenthal Center officials concluded.
