  1. First off and most importantly, a refuah sheleima to the injured police officers b’soch she’ar cholei Yisrael.
    Secondly, I hope that the terrorist doesn’t die but rather survives to remain brain-damaged, maimed and in unremitting pain for life, non-functional and driving his family insane so that he serves as a constant reminder to his entire clan that rather than a(n imaginary) glorious, instant paradise, one risks facing a daily tortured, miserable existence, ruining the lives of the entire family. It is no less than he deserves for trying to kills or ruin the lives of others.
