Two people were killed yesterday as a result of Palestinian terrorism in two different parts of the country. Both inside the "Green Line". You can read about it here and here and here. In one case, terrorists entered a moshav (an agricultural village) and started shooting. I heard one of the moshavniks on the radio saying it could have been much worse, because the terrorist hid in the moshav's children's public playground. The children happened to be at a special event somewhere else, otherwise it could have been a bloodbath. Not that the death of 48 year-old Eli Biton is any less of a tragedy. So much for Arafat's kindly call for a cessation of terrorism against Israelis until the Israeli elections. A 23rd victim of last week's terrorist attack in Tel Aviv has died of her injuries. A Chinese worker.
