The recent surge in Palestinian terror attacks on Israelis continued Thursday night when Palestinian Arab terrorists broke into a home in the Jordan Valley brandishing iron bars and axes. The Arabs savagely beat the husband, who died shortly thereafter, and they injured the wife, who was taken to the HaEmek Hospital in Afula.
Only last Saturday, a Palestinian terrorist shot a nine-year-old Jewish girl at close range in Psagot. She was shot through the neck as she played in the yard of her home.
It may not be a coincidence that the Palestinian attack in the Jordan Valley occurred; it came as there are reports that a Palestinian negotiator claimed that the Obama Administration is pushing Israel to abandon the Jordan Valley.
