Arab terrorists attacked Israel, near Eilat. Six (or more?) Israelis were killed and dozens injured. The attackers were neither "militants," (Three Egyptians Dead as Israel Chases Militants Along Border, Arutz 7, shame on you,) nor "gunman," as Yahoo described them, Gunmen kill 7 in Israel.
Davka, BBC did a better job:
CNN described it differently:
Attacks focus attention on Islamist extremists in Egypt -- and tunnels and
Israeli airstrikes target Gaza after multiple attacks
And the Jerusalem Post can't decide if the attack was by "gunmen" or terrorists.
Israeli air strikes hit Gaza after gunmen attackCounter-terror officer killed by terrorist fire near EilatThe Arab terrorists entered from the Sinai which has been under Egyptian control ever since Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin gave it to Egypt thirty years ago. Therefore, Egypt is supposed to be responsible for security there, but we all know that Egypt has been in "turmoil" for months.
Egypt is on Israel's southern border, and there have been Arab rocket attacks on a number of Israeli cities in the south.
The crucial question is:
Can the Israeli Government connect the dots?
