The Atrocity in Jerusalem

Two Palestinian terrorists attacked a synagogue in Jerusalem this week, killing five people, including four rabbis. I hope all those who regularly complain about the plight of the Palestinian people will reflect deeply on this atrocity. If, as we are told, the Palestinians really object to the security barrier that separates parts of the West Bank from parts of Israel, or what will surely be Israel in any reasonable two-state solution, killing people in a Jerusalem synagogue does not encourage the Israeli government to think twice about the barrier. I continue to be appalled by the way some on the Catholic Left look the other way at Palestinian terrorism while hurling the most obscene charges at Israel.
