Israeli teen killed in apparent terror attack

Thousands of people attended the funeral of a young Israeli man, Dvir Sorek, who is believed to have been stabbed to death in a terror attack. 

Sorek’s body was found early Thursday with stab wounds near Efrat, a Jewish city in the West Bank. Investigators believe that the terrorists saw Sorek, killed him and dumped his body. He was to celebrate his 19th birthday in a few days. 

Israeli investigators are combing West Bank villages for suspects.

Though Sorek was studying in a program which combines Torah studies with military service, he was not in uniform and was unarmed, Army spokesman Lt. Col. Jonathan Conricus said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the scene of the terror attack and vowed Israel would track down whoever was behind the deadly stabbing.

“We can see here the U-turn made by the car after the murder,” Netanyahu said at the scene. “Our answer to the murderers is twofold: They come to destroy and we are building. Our hand will reach them and we will settle our score with them. The investigation is going forward and is as its height.”

No terror group has claimed credit for the attack, but Hamas and Islamic Jihad have praised the murder.

“We salute the hero fighters, sons of our people, who carried out the heroic operation which killed a soldier of the occupation army,” Hamas said. So the killer’s family will be paid monthly by the Palestinian authority…and just maybe, he will be honored by having a public square named after him. This is the blood-lust culture of the Palestinians. And it is very sad.

Jason Greenblatt, President Donald Trump’s Middle East negotiator, wrote on Twitter that Hamas “chooses death & destruction over taking care of people they claim to lead.”

I've never read a book on leadership quite like this. Ron Cantor's approach is totally unique. This is not a book of pithy motivational poster quotes. Ron is honest and vulnerable.
