The cruelty of this act is unthinkable: just two days after Gilad Zar's Yahrtzeit - the anniversary of his killing, the Israeli government is going to kill Gilad again.
Exactly eight years ago:

May 29, 2001 - Gilad Zar, 41, of Itamar, was shot dead in a terrorist ambush while driving between Kedumim and Yizhar.

Gilad Zar, security officer of the Samaria Regional Council for the last four years, was hit by a hail of over 40 bullets as he drove on a bypass road between the communities of Yitzhar and Kedumim. The Palestinian terrorists shot at his windshield from a parked car, causing his car to overturn. They then got out, walked to Zar's car, shot him in the head at point-blank range, and fled to Nablus. Gilad died en route to hospital.

Zar was seriously injured in a previous shooting incident on March 25, when he was shot three times in the chest, hand, and leg.

Gilad's father, Moshe Zar, one of the first pioneers in Samaria, served in the "101" special commando army unit under Ariel Sharon, and the Prime Minister was a close personal friend of the family.

Gilad Zar was one of the founders of Itamar. He is survived by his wife Hagar and eight children, the oldest 15, as well as his parents and seven brothers and sisters.

Gilad Zar was buried in Karnei Shomron.



According to latest reports, Netanyahu and Barak are planning on destroying the community initiated in Gilad's memory, Ramat Gilad, late tonite or early tomorrow. Some 13 families live there, including members of Gilad's family.  The cruelty of this act  is unthinkable: just two days after Gilad Zar's Yahrtzeit - the anniversary of his killing, the Israeli government, led by the Prime Minister and Defense Minister, are going to kill Gilad again. How cruel can they possibly be?
