Hundreds gathered in Jerusalem on Tuesday to attend the funeral of the latest victim killed in a Palestinian stabbing attack.

Shlomit Krigman, 23, was buried at the Har Hamenuchot Cemetery in Givat Shaul, after succumbing to stabbing wounds from Monday afternoon’s attack in Beit Horon, a settlement northeast of the capital in the West Bank.

Krigman was attacked, along with 58-year-old Adina Cohen, at the local grocery store by two Palestinian terrorists who infiltrated the community. The assailants were shot and killed by a security guard, before managing to detonate pipe bombs they had brought with them to the scene.

Israeli Defense Minister Lieberman Hints at Keeping Previous Vow to Assassinate Former Hamas PM Haniyeh

“Talk to me about [former Hamas Prime Minister Ismayil] Haniyeh at the end of my term,” Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor...

According to the Hebrew news site nrg, in a tragic twist of fate, the plot that Krigman’s family found for her is located next to that of Dafna Meir, the mother-of-six from Otniel who was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist last week in front of her daughter at the family home.

Krigman, who did her national service as a coordinator for the Bnei Akiva youth movement, was mourned by those who knew and loved her, as well as by strangers, according to the Israeli site 0404.

One such person told 0404 why he had attended the funeral, despite the stormy weather in Jerusalem.

“I felt the need to come, because Shlomit is one of us,” he said. “Yesterday this happened to her; tomorrow, it can happen to any one of us. We have to come together and defeat terrorism.”

    I pray to G-D that he will Bless these innocent victims of Palestinan terror.

    Take Meit Kohana’s advice/
    Get all the Muslims out of Israel
    The Muslims will never recognise Israel as the state of the Jewish people.

    The only ones who should be allowed to stay, should be those who swear allegence to Israel and volunteer to serve in the IDF

    EU, France, Germany, Sweden,USA and Britain, have taken in millions of terrorists into their countries
    Now they are having a prblem of rapes.
    Soon, if they do notcontrol the ‘migrants” these Muslims will create trouble by starting to have mini Islamic states where nobody, not even the police will be alowed to enter as is happening in England.

    Stop the building of mosques, and arrect any Imam who preaces hatred and murder,

    I hope that Mari Le Pen will be the next president of FRance, She will send them packing, and Trump will become pOTUS. He will returne them to the deserts whence they came

  • As fellow Israelis and city dwellers of Otniel and Beit Horon mourn the brutal murders of Dafna Meir and Shlomit Krigman, the PLO terrorist entity continues its incitement against Israel and Jews. Israel must proactively replace the PLO and Hamas terrorist entities with Israeli governance.
