Palestinians kill unarmed Israelis: here we go again

From the Associated Press...

Israel suspended contacts with the Palestinian Authority and slapped tough travel restrictions on the West Bank after Palestinian gunmen killed three young Israelis and wounded five in two drive-by shooting near Jewish settlements.

The Palestinian attack near the Gush Etzion block of settlements on Sunday was the deadliest since July. It followed Israeli intelligence warnings that Palestinian militants, who claim they drove Israel out of Gaza by force, would now shift their focus to the West Bank. Israel pulled out of Gaza in September in a unilateral move.

The Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, a militant group with ties to the ruling Fatah party, claimed responsibility. However, Israeli media quoted security officials as saying they believed the Islamic militant Hamas might have been involved....

...militants racing by the Gush Etzion junction in a car opened fire at Israelis waiting at a bus stop and at others in nearby cars.

Israeli rescue services said one Israeli died at the scene and two others died in the hospital. Two were young women, cousins ages 23 and 21, from a nearby settlement, and the other was a 15-year-old boy.

Pictured above are cousins Kinneret Mandel and Matat Adler, the two women murdered by Palestinian terrorists. At the left are all three of the victims.

They'll keep up this nonsense until Israel raids and re-occupies Gaza. It's the continued cycle that happen, mostly, because myopic American politicians pressure Israel to do what we ourselves refuse to do—negotiate with and ultimately capitulate to terrorists.
