Palestinian terrorists murder Israeli 48-year-old woman, mother of 7

The Jerusalem Post (www.jpost.com) reports that Palestinian terrorists have shown once again what great warriors they are by shooting and killing an Israeli 48-year-old mother of 7:

Israeli woman killed in Samaria drive-by shooting An Israeli woman was killed Monday after being shot by Palestinian gunmen in an apparent drive-by shooting near the Rimonim Junction, 20 kilometers northeast of Ramallah, Israel Radio reported.

Rescue workers who arrived at the scene carried out resuscitation attempts on the woman before transferring her to Hadassah University Hospital, Mt. Scopus, where she underwent an operation, but later died of her wounds.

IDF troops closed of the roads near the site of the attack and are carrying out searches for the gunmen who apparently fled to a nearby Palestinian village.

I just heard on Israeli radio that the victim is Esther Galia, 48, mother of 7 from Kokhav Ya`akov. Since this is not a homicide/suicide bombing, don't expect your local news to tell you much about the faith of Mrs. Galia.
