The school shooting you didn’t hear about

Via KDT and Bruce:

Two Palestinian terrorists were killed after infiltrating a school in the Gush Etzion settlement bloc.

The terrorists disabled an alert system built into the perimeter fence of Kibbutz Kfar Etzion on Thursday and then sneaked into the Mekor Hayim high school yeshiva building, according to media reports. They then entered a classroom where they stabbed two counselors. The wounds were not considered life-threatening.

Two armed counselors then overpowered and killed the terrorists, who were unable to fire their weapons. Mekor Hayim high school is run by famed Talmudist Rabbi Adin Steinsaltz.

It doesn’t fit the narrative about how you’re supposedly hysterical to think it’s reasonable to arm school officials. More at Ahab’s.

    I just watched the HBO documentary ‘Children of Beslan’ again, which is the story of that event told by the kids who were there. Absolutely, stunningly horrific.

    I don’t know if armed teachers would have made a difference or not, but I suspect that they might have.

    The terrorists f***ers jumped the school during a big celebration with many parents present so that they could get the most people at once. If concealed carry had been permitted on school grounds, and it was a known fact that some teachers and probably some parents were armed, it would have at least made planning and execution more difficult. And however motivated the teachers may have been, a dozen or two parents with guns protecting their children from those b***ards would have been more motivated.

    Now, I’ll say that I don’t think a Beslan scenario is nearly as likely in the US. I hope. But over 300 people were killed, including 186 children. I guess I’d like more than hope as weapon against those types if it came down to it.

    This isn’t the first time that armed Israeli civilians have stopped a massacre.
