?Cease-Fire? Spreads To Jordan As Arabs Kill Jew In Amman

The Middle East ?cease-fire? spread this week to Jordan when an Israeli was shot to death in Amman Monday night. The victim, a diamond merchant in his 50s, was gunned down as he left an apartment he apparently maintained in the Jordanian capital.

In a statement called in to Abu Dhabi television, a group identifying itself as the Islamic Jordanian Resistance Movement took credit for the killing.

Back in Israel, Tehiya Bloomberg, five months pregnant, was slain by terrorists as she drove with her husband, Shimon, three of the couple?s five children and a hitchhiker on the Azoun bypass road Sunday night.

In the attack that killed their wife and mother,Shimon Bloomberg sustained bullet wounds to his face and chest and 14-year-oldTzippi Bloomberg was shot in the waist. Both were recovering after surgery at Beilinson Hospital, though a family spokesperson told reporters that Tzippi?s doctors were concerned about possible spinal damage.

Tehiya was buried Tuesday in Karnei Shomron, the community where the family had resided for the past 11 years.

?Shimon was unable to speak, but he moved his eyes and told me he knew about his wife and requested that the funeral take place in Karnei Shomron,? said a rabbi from the community, Dov Oron, who visited Bloomberg in the hospital.

The killing continued Tuesday when an Israeli motorist was shot as he drove near the northern Samaria community of Alfei Menashe.

Meanwhile, Israel?s policy of targeting terrorists for assassination came under criticism from Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Maher, who called Prime Minister Ariel Sharon?s government a ?gang of assassins.?

?Israel?s policy violates all laws and conventions,? said Maher in Cairo on Monday. ?It is unprecedented for a government to become a gang which assassinates people, which uses the methods of gangs in assassinating people.

?This behavior has put peace in the region in danger and put the interests of all countries in the region, the United States and the West, in danger,?? he said.

The woman killed Sunday, Tehiya Bloomberg, was a nurse whom neighbors and acquaintances described as someone ?always ready to help others,? a woman who no matter how busy or preoccupied ?made sure to greet everyone with a wide smile on her face.?

Shimon Bloomberg, originally from London, had made aliyah about 20 years ago, said a family friend. The friend said Shimon is employed by Israel Aircraft Industries and serves as a gabai at the local synagogue. His parents and a brother still live in England and were expected to arrive in Israel during the week to visit their son and brother.

?Shimon and Tehiya were so excited with the new baby It is hard to come to terms with such a tragedy,? said Rina Gruber, a friend of the Bloomberg family shortly before Tehiya was buried.

With 2013 marking half a century since Kennedy’s fateful limousine ride in Dallas, the current revels are exceeding the revisionist frenzies of years past, with a seemingly endless parade of books, articles and television specials designed to assure us that, despite everything that has come to light about him since his death, JFK was a great president, or at least a very good president who would have been great had his life not been so cruelly cut short.

As someone who for the past fifteen years has been writing a column that largely focuses on the news media, I’ve read what is no doubt an altogether unhealthy number of books on the subject. Most of them were instantly forgettable while some created a brief buzz but failed to pass the test of time. And then there were those select few that merited a permanent spot on the bookshelf.

George W. Bush has been getting some positive media coverage lately, with recent polls showing him at least as popular as his successor, Barack Obama, and a big new book about the Bush presidency by New York Times chief White House correspondent Peter Baker (Days of Fire, Doubleday) portraying Bush as a much more hands-on chief executive than his detractors ever imagined.

Readers who’ve stuck with the Monitor over the years will forgive this rerun of sorts, but as we approach the fortieth anniversary of the Yom Kippur War – and with the stench of presidential indecisiveness hanging so heavily over Washington these days – it seemed only appropriate to revisit Richard Nixon’s role in enabling Israel to recover from the staggering setbacks it suffered in the first week of fighting.

Shakespeare had it right. The evil that men do indeed lives after them. Case in point: Nahum Goldmann, who served in a variety of Jewish and Zionist organizational leadership posts from the 1920s through the 1970s.
