Terrorists Attack High School on Kibutz Near Jerusalem are Killed by Armed Civilians

Two terrorists were killed by armed civilians less than an hour ago after they infiltrated a high school in Kibbutz Kfar Etzion, south of Jerusalem.

The terrorists, armed with knives and possibly with a pistol, infiltrated the kibbutz and snuck into the Makor Haim High School.

The school was filled with more than 200 students.

The attack took place in the library when the two terrorists, dressed in black, burst into the room and ordered everyone to raise their hands and stand against the wall. The terrorists stabbed two students before their counselors were able to draw their personal handguns and kill the terrorists on the spot.

"The terrorists came inside and began stabbing students," a defense official said. Three students were injured, including two moderately. IDF sources hailed the student's counselors quick response. "This could have ended much worse," a source in the IDF Central Command said.

The terrorists entered the campus by cutting a hole is the security fence, apparently disabling the electronic alert system. Shaul Etzion, a Regional Council chairman arrived on the scene shortly after the incident and praised the students and their counselors, who showed "that Jews have no fear...of cowardly terrorists."

In my opinion, this type of incident reinforces the need for a well armed and trained civilian population.

My son (age 15) just told me that one of his classmates was there that night.

The circles just keep getting closer and closer.

I am an elementar education major over here in the USA. I would like nothing more then to be able to protect m students in the same manner. After Malot (that real bad massacre in 74? I think) ou folks defininteli got ur stuff together. I wonder what it will take for us to do the same here and I fear that nothing will.
