    Those killed by Palestinian fire were Pinchas Menachem Prezuazman, a 21-year-old American Israeli; Moshe Agadi, a 58-year-old father of four, who was hit with shrapnel to his chest and stomach in the yard of his home in Ashkelon; 49-year-old Arab Israeli Ziad Alhamada, who died when a rocket hit the factory where he worked in Ashkelon; and 67-year-old Moshe Feder, who was hit by a missile while driving.

    “You don’t know what it means to me that you came here,” Alhamada’s son reportedly told Rivlin, who replied: “Why wouldn’t I come, aren’t you an Israeli citizen?”

    In a message of unity, Rivlin said that he does “everything I can to visit all Israelis who are in such terrible grief from terrorist attacks. We, the tribes of Israel, are together in good times and bad, in hope and in difficulty, regardless of which tribe we are from. Ultra-Orthodox, secular, religious and traditional, Jews and Arabs – terror strikes us all without discrimination and without mercy and we will never surrender to it.”

    Don’t equate them with us. They’re nothing like us. They glorify death, we glorify life. We are G-d’s Chosen people, and that alone is the reason for their rabid jealousy of us. Nothing more nothing less.
