Pregnant Woman Visiting Israel for Memorial to Mumbai Terror Victims Killed in Terror Strike

It’s another reminder that Islamic terror is pervasive and that one day we are mourning the victims of one terror attack only to be the victims of another.

Among the victims of this morning’s Gaza rocket attack on the Israeli city of Kiryat Malachi was a 25 year old Chabad “shlucha (female emissary)” to New Dehli, India named Mirah (nee Cohen) Scharf, who was visiting Israel this week for the memorial service of Chabad Mumbai terror victims Gabi and Rivka Holtzberg. The Hebrew anniversary of their brutal murder is today.

According to Chabad website, Scharf was pregnant. Sources on Facebook say she was the mother of 3 young children.

The targets of Muslim terror, even of random terror, are civilians.

    The problem with Israel and it's politicians and military is that it never fights to WIN a war but only to hold back hostilities and casualties to an "acceptable" level. "Acceptable" levels always rise over time. Iran does not need to nuke Israel (their nukes are a very big threat, however, to the Saudis, Qatar, UAE, etc.). Iran and the MB fund and supply Hamas and Hamas does the killing more slowly, piece by piece, town by town, so that Israelis in bigger cities don't feel the pain and even end up blaming the Israeli victims for somehow "provoking the situation." It's a brilliant strategy. Israel, the "safe haven" for Jews becomes the most dangerous place for them. When Israel gets serious about fighting to WIN, maybe this will stop. Maybe Europe will feel the bite of Islamism just a little too much and say ENOUGH! Maybe the Saudis will care more about staying wealthy than about Wahabism. Either way, it seems clear that as Israel goes, so goes the world.

    I've said it before: Any American who goes to the Middle East should go with open eyes, open wallet (bribes) and a probated will on file. This should be a standard issue warning from the State Department for all flights terminating in the Middle East.

    The reaction of the UN and ignorant other countries to this is enough to make me want to pull my hair out.
