An IDF Reserve Officer Eliav Gelman hy”d has succumbed to the grievous wounds he suffered after fighting off an Arab terrorist during an attack Wednesday at the Gush Etzion Junction.

Gelman was targeted by the terrorist but managed to pull out his pistol to defend himself during the attack, which took place at a hitchhiking post at the Gush Etzion Junction, about 15 minutes south of Jerusalem.


A 31-year-old resident of the Jewish community of Carmei Tzur — which he helped to build — Gelman grew up in the Gush Etzion town of Kiryat Arba. He was a father of two and soon to be three: his wife is in an advanced stage of pregnancy.

The Gush Etzion Regional Council said in a statement, “The Council and residents of the region join hands in sending their condolences to Gelman’s family, and embrace them in deep grief.”

Details of the funeral are not yet complete.

  1. Again and again and again, Bibi stands idly by the blood of our brothers and sisters. While Netanyahu is turning his other cheek to please the Gentile printing press, Jews are maimed and murdered. We need a Prime Minister who understands the meaning of NUMBERS 33:52-55, and will care more about Jewish blood than about his popularity with the Goyim.

  2. If there were no Palestinians in Israel this man would be alive. Thanking him for his service will no comfort his widow and it won't prevent more bloodshed. The regime orders soldiers not to defend their lives and to aim for the legs. The government gives terrorists 5 star hospital and ambulance treatment over their victims. If you continue taking it the Arabs will have the green light from the leftist NGOs to keep murdering you you stupid morons. How long will you remain silent and not demand REAL protection?

  3. Every person who was born in Israel before 1948 (Jews included have on their birth certificate these words :born in Palestina -eretz Israel,) which means half of my family ! you sitting all comfy on your golden thrown would recommend killing them ? (after the nazis murdered the other 3/4 for being Jewish ?) wow ! conserving nazism are you ?

  4. How many more Bibi? Tell us how many Jews have to be stoned,murdered? What sane country would tolerate this madness for one minute!!!!
    Go arrest so Hilltop Jews…. that will inspire real fear in these animals.
    You and your cohorts have enabled this animalistic behavior.

  5. Ora Cooper Like Nazis and Nazism which together with Islam, its followers and the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem who all worked together so diligently to murder our people, Islam itself must be outlawed and eradicated. Islam goes even further by canonizing in their Qur’an and their own religious works the commands and examples to murder our people to the very last one.

    Now, all the Germans did not need to be killed. But Nazism, its leaders, dedicated followers and the symbolic vestiges promoting its presence were eradicated. Only the places of horrors it created and the history of what it did are preserved as a reminder to humanity.

    The Dome of the Rock and the al-Aksa mosque need to be razed. Had our people known the nature of Islam in 1967 (after nearly 1400 years we still have not internalized the nature of Islam and its followers… shame on us), we would have exposed Islam for what it is, say by reading aloud the Qur’an, and started demolitions. Islamic presence must eventually be removed, everywhere. It is important that anything of value must be disposed of in a fashion such that there is no gain nor profit from the effort.

    The solution for the moment is not a war of aggression against Islam but rather the education of our people and of western civilization regarding Islam.

    Religions can be evil. People need to understand the exact details of Islam, its history to this day, its tactics, its strategies, and to grasp the Darwinianly perfected nature and makeup (with the intelligence of captured and bred blood of other peoples including our own) of its people. We need not to take for granted extrapolations of early unrelated biblical texts that predate by thousands of years where the people of Islam may have originated. We must not blindly accept as truths Muslim explanations for their origins. They simply are what they are, and have Darwinianly perfected themselves by systematically killing off any of their own people who become apostates or voice civilized and intelligent ideas.

  6. Take no more terrorist prisoners. Let the US and the rest of the world and the toothless useless UN babble on in the comfort of their well guarded homes, work places, and vacation resorts. Here at home they want to take our firearms while being guarded, they and their families, with heavy firepower. "No guns to protect schools" they say, while their own children attend schools guarded by guns. The "justice department" puts pedophiles and criminals on the streets among common citizens while they and their own families never walk the same venues. Take no more terrorist prisoners, Israel. Remove them permanently when they come at you, for the sake of your children and your future. The governments of the world care not about your future, apparently.
