'Our revenge is to turn Havat Gilad into a city'

Moshe Zar, the father of Gilad Zar who was murdered in a shooting attack near Havat Gilad which was named for him, eulogized Raziel Shevach, who was also murdered in a shooting attack nearby.

Zar said that Shevach had taught his own grandson Gilad and asked: "How will I tell a 7-year-old boy that his teacher was murdered in cold blood 300 meters from the place where his own uncle whom he is named for was murdered and 300 meters from his own house?"

Zar said that the only comfort one could receive from bereavement is in building and this is the best revenge. "Every house we build eliminates ten terrorists, building a new community is like eliminating 10,000 terrorists."

Zar asked to establish a city in Havat Gilad and said that there is room for such a city "on private land bought at full price."
