It took 36 long years, but Israel finally eliminates the terrorist who killed a Jewish girl by smashing the 4 year old’s head with a rock
“One of them shot Danny in front of Einat so that his death would be the last sight she would ever see”
The story of Samir Kuntar reminds us that the enemies we’re fighting are evil. They are monsters. This is where the story begins.
It had been a peaceful Sabbath day. My husband, Danny, and I had picnicked with our little girls, Einat, 4, and Yael, 2, on the beach not far from our home in Nahariya, a city on the northern coast of Israel, about six miles south of the Lebanese border. Around midnight, we were asleep in our apartment when four terrorists, sent by Abu Abbas from Lebanon, landed in a rubber boat on the beach two blocks away. Gunfire and exploding grenades awakened us as the terrorists burst into our building. They had already killed a police officer. As they charged up to the floor above ours, I opened the door to our apartment. In the moment before the hall light went off, they turned and saw me. As they moved on, our neighbor from the upper floor came running down the stairs. I grabbed her and pushed her inside our apartment and slammed the door…
They held Danny and Einat while they searched for me and Yael, knowing there were more people in the apartment. I will never forget the joy and the hatred in their voices as they swaggered about hunting for us, firing their guns and throwing grenades. I knew that if Yael cried out, the terrorists would toss a grenade into the crawl space and we would be killed. So I kept my hand over her mouth, hoping she could breathe. As I lay there, I remembered my mother telling me how she had hidden from the Nazis during the Holocaust. “This is just like what happened to my mother,” I thought.
As police began to arrive, the terrorists took Danny and Einat down to the beach. There, according to eyewitnesses, one of them shot Danny in front of Einat so that his death would be the last sight she would ever see. Then he smashed my little girl’s skull in against a rock with his rifle butt. That terrorist was Samir Kuntar.
That was 1979. In prison, Samir Kuntar was allowed to get married to a pro-terrorist activist. Repeated attempts were made by terror groups to secure the release of their “hero”. He was eventually handed over to Hezbollah by Ehud Olmert, a man who likely will go down in history as Israel’s worst prime minister.
Kuntar met with Bashar Assad and expressed his desire to kill more Israelis. Samir Kuntar has told the Lebanese station Future TV that “Allah willing, I will get the chance to kill more Israelis.” Kuntar is the child-murderer who killed three Israelis, including a four-year-old girl whose skull he crushed with the butt of his rifle.”
Kuntar’s deity Allah, on whose behalf he had committed these terrible crimes, proved to be no match for Israeli planes.
Hezbollah commander Samir Kunter and eight other terrorists were killed in a targeted air strike in the Damascus suburb of Jaramana Saturday night. Kuntar spent 29 years in prison for the brutal murder of an Israeli man and his four-year-old daughter in 1979.
Earlier this year, the U.S. State Department named Kuntar a Specially Designated Global Terrorist for playing “an operational role, with the assistance of Iran and Syria, in building up Hizballah’s terrorist infrastructure in the Golan Heights.”
The reactions to the Israeli strike have been mixed.
The media widely describes the brutal murderer of a 4-year-old girl as a “militant”. Hamas is standing with Samir Kuntar and vowing to continue his work.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri condemned the assassination as an Israeli “crime.”
Hamas’s armed wing, Izaddin Kassam, accused the “Zionist enemy” of being behind the assassination. It said that Hamas would
