For people like Toulouse terrorist Mohamed Merah, "occupied
territory" is anywhere a Jew walks, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu
said Thursday during a shiva call to Ava Sandler, who lost her
husband and two young sons in Monday´s attack.
Netanyahu, who visited Sandler as well as the parents and siblings of
Miriam Monsonego, the eight-year old girl murdered in the attack in
Toulouse, told Sandler Israel would help her in any way possible.
"The State of Israel was established to be a shield for the Jewish
People," he said.
At the condolence call to the Monsonego family, Netanyahu –
accompanied by French ambassador Christophe Bigot - said "if they
could, these murderers would kill every Jew.
"It is awful to think about little Miriam who was murdered so
brutally," he said.
The prime minister, who lost his brother Yonatan in the 1976 Entebbe
raid, said bereavement was like a disability. "It is painful and
debilitating. It is as if a limb of your body has been cut off. We
all pray that you find the strength to deal with your pain.” (© 1995-
