Rachel and Dov Kol
were murdered in a terrorist attack.
Dov, 58, and Rahel, 53, were murdered in a shooting attack on the Kissufim Route linking Gush Katif to Kissufim Checkpoint. The couple had spent the Shabbat with Rahel's sister in the Gush Katif settlement of Ganei Tal, and were returning to their home in Jerusalem as part of a convoy of civilian and military vehicles leaving Gush Katif.
However, it's doubtful that Ariel Sharon is really going to take convincing steps to deal with this.
As Gush residents point out here:
Settler leaders complained Sunday morning that the IDF was not effective enough in their response to the fatal shooting.
They complained that soldiers who were at the scene failed to return fire at the terrorists, Army Radio reported. After the attack soldiers scoured the area and detected one of the perpetrators, whom they shot and killed.
Additionally, the settlers claimed that the local armored ambulance was detained by soldiers near Re'im Junction outside the Gaza Strip while it was on its way to respond to the attack.
Could this have something to do with Sharon's wish to appease the US government?
