4 Israelis Killed in West Bank Suicide BombingYes indeed! What this and other reports do NOT say is that the victims were an elderly couple, Rafi and Helena Halevy, both 60, and two young people of 16 and 20. Rafi Halevy was a 7th generation Israeli.

A Palestinian suicide bomber has killed four Israelis at the entrance to a West Bank Jewish settlement.
Witnesses say the bomber was disguised as a religious Jew. The Israeli military says three Israelis in a car apparently agreed to give him a ride. The attacker then blew himself up near the settlement of Kedumin, west of Nablus.
The body of the fourth Israeli was found near the site of the explosion.
The Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, an offshoot of the Fatah Party of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, claimed responsibility for the attack. The group identified the bomber as a 24-year-old man from Hebron.
Separately, Israel carried out an airstrike in the Gaza Strip early Friday, hitting an area used by Palestinian militants for firing rockets into Israel.
Palestinians say the missile attack damaged a bridge and broke a water pipe. There were no reports of casualties.
Some information for this report was provided by AFP, AP and Reuters.
What the reports DO mention, however, and very notably without any critical comment, is the take the mouthpiece of those valiant freedom fighters has on the matter:
"Our Palestinian people have the right to defend themselves," Hamas lawmaker Mushir al Masri said" and "[the suicide attack is] a natural response … to the continued Israeli killing, incursions and arrests".It leaves one wondering what "law" that humanoid is making and whether those schmocks have even one heart, one braincell and one vertebra left among them to rub together.
