March 5, 2002 -- JERUSALEM - When the bullets started flying at the Seafood Market disco in Tel Aviv, shoe salesman William Hazanís first instinct was to duck under a table.

A real man? A real man carries his pistol around in his wife's purse? You've gotta be kidding.

A real man buys his own purse!!

You're right! And imagine if he had missed! Then he just would've enraged the terrorist even more! It's best to not resist and acquiesce when confronted with a terrorist bent on killing as many people as possible. God knows how many MORE people they'd kill if you angered them! /sarcasm

Perhaps God put you there for such a time as this.

"I realized I was looking at the wrong man, so I turned my gun and shot the other one."

Look for the liberals to focus on how he almost shot an innocent man!

He said he’s even taken it to synagogue services - and after today’s heroics, he hopes that transgression will be overlooked.

"I feel God will forgive me," he said.

What transgression? Is there something in Jewish law about bringing a weapon to the synagogue?

Somebody should tell Mr. Hazan that violence is never the answer.
