Hello again, and welcome
to the fourth issue of the FactsOfIsrael.com newsletter.
Yesterday, there was another Palestinian homicide/suicide bombing in
Netanya. This time Palestinian terror killed three Israeli civilians and
injured dozens - click here for the story.
terrorism continues, we have seen a major decrease in these vicious
attacks. The IDF (Israel's army) has delivered a major blow to
the Islamic Jihad, the Hamas and Arafat's terrorist groups, but the
work is not completely done. Since
Israel withdrew from the Palestinian cities, the above
Palestinian terrorist groups have had time to reorganize
and start their campaign of terror once again.
I have posted in the
a list of all homicide/suicide bombings since October 2000, when
Arafat and his thugs decided to take another
shot at killing Israeli civilians and destroying Israel.
It contains a list of over 30
homicide/suicide attacks, and I will add links to the
stories behind the numbers: who are the mothers,
kids and grand-fathers being murdered? Check it out
and let me know what you think.
Thanks for being interested in the facts,
The state of Jordan
became became independent in 1922. Before its independence, it represented 75% of the
Palestine British Mandate territory.
About 1.5 Million
Palestinians live in Jordan, yet they hold no political power.
It is also interesting to note that although Jordan was part of
the British mandate of Palestine,
today's Palestinians, including Arafat, the Islamic Jihad and the
Hamas do not have any claim over Jordan.
Instead they wish for the
destruction of the State of Israel, created in 1948. See the
history page for more details and

Anat Teremforush, Mother of 3
Anat Teremforush, 36, of Ashdod was one of 15 people killed when a suicide
bomber detonated a powerful charge in a game club located on the 3rd floor of
a building in Rishon Lezion, causing part of the building to collapse. Hamas
claimed responsibility for the attack.
Anat Teremforush, 36
Mother of 3
On May 7th 2002, At about 11:00 PM, the terrorist entered the unlicensed Sheffield Club with a
suitcase of explosives, spiked with shrapnels and nails to cause maximum injury.
The patrons were trying their luck at slot machines, card games or snooker. 15 were
killed, and 55 wounded in the blast.
Anat and Danny Teremforush went to the Sheffield Club with family members. They
told their three children they would be safe because the terrorist attacks had
stopped. Anat died instantly in the exlosion. Danny was injured, as were Anat's
mother, Hannah Almasi, and her sister Batsheva. "How do I tell my children they
don't have a mother?" asked Danny from his hospital bed.
Anat and Danny had been married for 12 years. Anat, an accountant by profession,
worked the Jumbo store in Ashdod so that she could devote time to her three sons:
Eden (10), Din (7) and Chen (5).
Anat Teremforush was buried in Holon. She leaves behind her husband and three
May God bless her memory.
