Eden Atias is the name of the IDF soldier who was murdered this morning. He joined the IDF 3 weeks ago. He was 19 years old, a resident of Natzrath (Nazareth) Illit.

The terrorist’s name is Hussein Jawadara, of Jenin. Both of the terrorist’s brothers are imprisoned in Israeli prisons for terrorist activities. One of them murdered a Jew when he was only 15.

Doctors at the hospital fought for Atias’s life but were unable to save him.

The soldier was stabbed all over his body, including his neck, as he slept on bus number 823 from Nazareth, at the central bus station in Afula.

The 15-year-old Arab terrorist entered Israel illegally. He was captured by bus passengers and turned over to security forces.

The attack weapon, a knife, was recovered at the scene.

    It is only one Jewish youngster. Israel doesn't really care when terrorists act like this. At best, the terrorist will serve a little time in prison and then let go in some prisoner exchange or another. This story is hardly new news anymore. Just another terrorist causing mayhem in Israel.

  2. Ron Ander says:

    Israel must tell the P.L.O. that they are suspending talks until there is a significant period of time without violence and a stopping of their incitement to violence. It is better for Israel to stop the talks and give a good reason therefore blaming it on the "Palestinians" then for Abby Mazon to use building of apartment buildings as an excuese to stop the talks therefore blaming Israel.

  3. Charmaine Chatkin says:

    This is just too sad. I am in tears!

  4. Bruce Bevitz says:

    Why does Israel let an ignorant, semi-litterate overly botoxed doofus like Kerry dictate conditions for them? The U.S. needs Israel more than vice versa. This administration is one step away from being anti-semitic.Time to put on the big boy pants, and tell the US to cram it.

  5. He is with our Maker…however, our thoughts and prayers are with his family. I feel he is our son…we Jews are all one. When something like this happens, the bells toll for him and for all of us as well. Descanse en Paz, Eden Atias!!!

  6. Basha Kline says:

    This isn't just one Jewish life, it is a scar on all Jewish souls. Here is a young boy just opening his eyes, ready to serve his country with hopes to also leave a blueprint for a better world but his ideals were blighted by what? a filthy arab! one that doesn't know that Israel is the place that would have most probably given him a job and fathered the bastard – that is the trouble, they, the arabs are so indoctrinated with hatred and venom that they have no neshuma – We can only wish Eden Atias's family long life – Kerry, this happened on your watch!

  7. David Ifergan says:

    enough..is enough, bring the death penalty. fast and swift in cases like this one. within a week to judge him sentence him.and KILL.

  8. I feel this is Kerry & obama,s fault

  9. All people in Israel cared when a soldier died. If you look at the time served in prison, they're in for life. Only something crazy like this peace table with Abbas demanding criminals to be let out has affected the time served and then they took out men who had been in the longest-horrible though they were. Redbear, are you an Israeli like I am? Every time we hear these things, no matter how many times we hear it, it causes unhappiness and anger.

  10. Who says they're not already anti-Semitic? I'm with you to tell them to cram it! Kerry is horrid, Obama is obvious!

  11. We don't have it in Israel, only for people like Eichman who have killed thousands. Any other country would who has the death penalty.

  12. This is proof of the teachings going on in Judea/Samaria and of course, Gaza. The kids are being programmed to hate Jews and Israel in school, in their books, on TV, and from their hatefilled parents. And these are the ones to be future neighbors! Oh sure. Before any peace program is even discussed this needs to change.

  13. Albert Benhamou says:

    this is why peace seems so remote and utopia; it takes two to tango; so, unless the Palestinian side would stop educating generations of haters, any negotiation or agreement towards peace is pointless; it won't happen in our current generation for sure

  14. My condolence to the bereaved family, what sort of society are we, this are young children why so much wickedness going on among the youth, the whole region is full of hatred against each other. God must intervene

  15. Bruce Bevitz says:

    Amen sister, amen. What's going to happen when all those Jewish realize I am write. Will they stop apologizing for their leaders.

  16. Grüner Peter says:

    Slowly.
