The road to Malachi's death and the decisions that made it possible

...Perhaps Malachi died as a victim of a tragedy. And perhaps that tragedy was engineered by humans who knew what they were doing or - worse - considered the possibilities and concluded that the price was affordable. The likelihood that mainstream media anywhere will point this out to their news consumers in any language, including Hebrew, Arabic, English or other, is close to zero. It falls to people like us who have lived through it, to speak up and explain that, more than any other aspect, this is the tragedy of living at a time when the corrosive effects of terrorism are so poorly understood.

Some weeks ago, we wrote here ["19-Jul-15: Another catastrophic outcome of the 2011 Shalit Deal"] about the cold-blooded shooting attack on four young Israeli men heading home after an evening of playing basketball.

Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld Hy"d, 26, son of Eliezer and Sarah, a resident of Cochav Hashachar, an outstanding student at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, died of his injuries. He was riding home with three friends on the night of June 29, 2015 after playing basketball when their vehicle came under shooting attack ["29-Jun-15: Drive-by shooting attack near Shvut Rachel tonight"]. All four were wounded in the hail of fire. Malachi died the next day.

The attack, the woundings, and the death of Malachi were yet another direct consequence of the tragically misconceived Shalit Deal. Several Palestinian Arab men, members of a terror-focused gang called the Hamas Silwad Cell (Silwad is a town), were arrested and confessed to that murderous assault as well as several earlier shooting attacks on Israelis.
