Earlier on Monday, an explosion killed six members of the Fatah terror organization, which is headed by Yasser Arafat. Naturally, Arafat's people accused Israel of assassinating the men, but Israel denies it and said they probably were killed during bomb preparation.
Israel does better protecting its people when it remains strong and resolute. There is going to be no peace until the Lord returns. Meanwhile, Israel has every right to protect itself in the face of those who wish to eliminate the state and evict all non-Muslims.
