Terrorist attack in Jerusalem

03.06.08

The deadliest terrorist attack in Israel in two years… This time at a prominent yeshiva:

A Palestinian terrorist opened fire at a central Jerusalem yeshiva late Thursday night, killing eight students and wounding 11 others, police and rescue officials said.

The 8:45 p.m. shooting at Mercaz Harav Yeshiva in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood broke a two-year lull in terror in the capital and sent students scurrying for cover from a hail of gunfire – a reported 500-600 bullets – that lasted for several minutes.

What is there to say that hasn’t been said hundreds of times already? What words of condemnation, shock, horror or anger could possibly express anything anymore? Is there anyone left who can’t already predict how things will unfold from here? Has it not all been scripted out in advance? What can anyone possibly say about 8 dead students?
