Maybe it makes me seem heartless; but facts are facts.
Of course, this is sad, tragic; the children were really cute, the school seems lovely... but it is hard not to see the connection:
- our children in Ashkelon, in Beer Sheva, in Ashdod, in Netivot, etc., are also suffering as we speak;
- not to mention multiple past Jerusalem bus bombings when Edom couldn't have cared less;
- the massacred school children in Maalot - Edom couldn't have cared less;
- Hitler, one million Jewish children slaughtered, massacred, starved to death - not only couldn't Edom have cared less, they were instigators and participants;
- etc. etc....
Edom cannot help our enemies with impunity any longer; when WE suffer, THEY suffer.
For the uninitiated: Edom, in Jewish tradition, stands for Rome, the historically antisemitic Christian/Western world.
3 Jewish children murdered by a terrorist in Toulouse, in a school: is there going to be the same outpouring of world sympathy for the families of the poor, innocent ones?
We didn't have to look far, did we:
EUROPEAN UNION FOREIGN POLICY CHIEF, Catherine Ashton:
“When we think of what happened in Toulouse today, when we remember what happened in Norway a year ago, when we know what is happening in Syria, when we see what is happening in Gaza and in different parts of the world – we remember young people and children who lose their lives." (Statement quickly whitewashed by the EU after realizing they had gone too far this time)
So much for compassion when Jewish children get massacred. So, Jew hating Edom, your time is coming: your cup of evil is filling up, the blood of your precious children will flow like water when God is finally tired of your evil hearts.
On the other hand, many decent non-Jews did express hurt and outrage at this recent antisemitic massacre, and we thank them.
So there are both kinds in Europe; which group did these families belong to?
If they were innocent and didn't hate Jews in their hearts, if they didn't rejoice in the suffering of Jewish children and Jewish families, let them accept my sincere condolences: my heart goes out to them, and I wish them deep consolation from Heaven.

Ashdod, Ashkelon, Gan Yavne, Kiryat Malachi: No School
There will be no classes, Friday in Ashdod, Ashkelon and Kiryat Malachi, due to the security situation in southern Israel.

Earlier, Be'er Sheva and Ofakim announced they would not be holding classes either.
