Evil Incarnate

July 18, 2008

Below is a picture worth 6 million words (and counting...): 

Convicted terrorist Samir Kuntar on Wednesday vowed to continue his 'resistance' against Israel, speaking at a Beirut rally welcoming his return and that of four Hezbollah men Israel released as
part of a [Killers-for-Bones] swap deal with the Lebanon-based guerilla group, in which Israel
received the bodies [i.e., bones] of two Israeli soldiers kidnapped by Hezbollah guerillas in a cross-border raid that sparked the 2006 war. [More here]

So who is Samir Kuntar? Kuntar is the guy who smashed the skull of a 4-year-old Israeli girl after shooting her father in front of her very eyes.

In the dead of night on April 22, 1979, Kuntar and three other gunmen made their way in a rubber dinghy from Lebanon to the sleepy Israeli coastal town of Nahariya, five miles south of the border.

There, they killed a policeman who stumbled upon them, then burst into the apartment of Danny Haran, herding him and his 4-year-old daughter out of the house at gunpoint to the beach below, where they were killed.

The attack is seared in Israel's collective consciousness because witnesses recounted that Kuntar shot Danny Haran in front of his child, then killed her by smashing her skull against a rock with his rifle butt.

Haran's wife, Smadar, who had fled into a crawl space in the family apartment with her 2-year-old daughter, accidentally smothered the child with her hand while trying to stifle her cries.
