Jewish terror victim had his weapon confiscated shortly before he was murdered

I've mentioned before how the Jewish residents of Judea and Samaria are often endangered because their weapons are confiscated for no reason. Now, new rules may be issued that will make the issuance or confiscation of weapons less arbitrary.

The reason why this finally may be resolved is an unpleasant one. It has come out that the weapon of Yitzchak Ames HY"D (may God avenge his blood), who was murdered with his wife Talya, their unborn child and two other people on September 1, was confiscated by the police shortly before the terror attack in which he was murdered.

Let's hope the rest of the Jews in Judea and Samaria are allowed to keep their weapons, and that those weapons that have been confiscated will be returned.

I've always thought Israel needs a constitution, with districting so that you can vote out specific bums (rather than having to vote out a whole party because their list has somebody up too high to get rid of in voting)... and now it sounds like you need a 2nd amendment...

The blood-guilt is on those who deprived terror victims of their right of self-defense. They will be asked on the Day Of Judgment where they were when they supposed to be their brother's keeper.

And all their defenses as they should will avail them nothing in the sight of Heaven. When there is no justice in this world, there will be justice in the next one.

Do you know what the reason was for his weapon being confiscated?

Sunlight, what we need is a Jewish state, not a state with lots of Jews in it.

SG, I heard an interview one time with a guy who said something like that Israel's constitution is the Torah. But clarification may be in order because many of the founders of Israel were socialists/marxists (e.g., kibbutzim). As far as I can tell, that isn't what the Torah advocates, although I can see some situations - temporary - where a team approach is advatageous, to eat!, such as after the holocaust, balancing reason in enterprises with large labor pools, etc.. I actually think Israel is fantastic, worthy of praise. I actually get more nervous when Jews clump in one view of things rather than what I see as the benefit of Jews' striving in many many directions.

BTW, NormanF, well said. Sitting under rockets in Israel is terrible for the civilians affected and also leaves others in the world to sit under rockets (Israel is a leader - what happens in Israel is a preview of what's coming elsewhere).
