Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer: Home demolitions "do serve as a deterrent"

Israel has ramped up security after two Palestinians wielding a gun and butcher knives killed five people, three of them Americans, at a synagogue.

Officials have vowed to demolish the homes of the two attackers. Officials did demolish the home of another Palestinian who killed two people last month when he drove his car into a crowd of people standing at Jerusalem train station.

The Associated Press found the attacker's grandmother sitting in the rubble today. She told them she was proud of her grandson's actions, saying "no one should feel sorry for us, for our demolished home."

    Never heard an explanation of such non-logic that it flies in the face of even common sense. The extrapolation of that is Israel will have to nuke itself to completely solve its Arab problem. I really hope they will try something else – like pursuing
    true Peace.
