Sanhedrin: Revenge is Fine Says the Lord
(IsraelNN.com) The Permanent Beit Din of the Sanhedrin met Tuesday to discuss the option of revenge following the massacre at Mercaz HaRav yeshiva Thursday. According to news website Nfc, it ruled that by not performing their duty to take revenge for the attack, the government and the IDF are leaving it up to individual Jews to do so.
"Jews are not sheep and will not go like sheep to the slaughter," the Sanhedrin stated. "The Jewish people will find the way to strike its enemies. The Jewish nation has the patience required for this," it added.
Regarding the concept of revenge, the Beit Din stated: "When there is no judicial system, revenge is at the root of justice and is a corollary of a person's dignity and freedom. No just sentence is without revenge," it added. The court also noted that the word "revenge" (nekama) enjoys the special privilege of appearing between two instances of the Lord's name in Psalms 94, verse 1: " O Lord, the God who avenges! O God who avenges, reveal your splendor!"

Abbas in Tirade Over 'Barbaric' IDF Bethlehem Op
(IsraelNN.com) PA leader Mahmoud Abbas issued an emotional denouncement of Israel's Special Operations action in Bethlehem Wednesday which left four senior terrorists dead in a bullet riddled car.
"This barbaric crime against our fighters and against our Palestinian people tears the mask off of the fake mask covering the face of Israel, which speaks of peace and on a daily basis commits crimes, murders and executions against our people."
"Despite all of the fake claims by the Israeli government that it wants peace and security, on the ground it ceaselessly continues constructing settlements in Jerusalem and in the other territories in the West Bank, as it casts aside all of its fake commitments at Annapolis and in the other international events, besides the barbaric holocaust it perpetrated against our people, our women and children in Gaza."
