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.

His second was to open his wifeís purse and grab a gun to confront the attacker - a move that probably saved many lives.

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

"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.

Every sane of legal age Isreali needs to be packing heat, and when these situations occur, take proper action.

Most of their young people have had gun training in the military and they should always be armed and willing to stop these terrorist on the spot.

This is taken from another site, written by a Rabbi named R. Mermelstein:

In the Talmudic tractate of Shabbos, chapter 6, the fourth Mishnah states ":A man may not go out (of his private domain on the Sabbath) with a sword, a longbow, protective armament, a metal staff or a spear. If he does so, he is required to bring to the Temple in Jerusalem a sacrificial sin offering as he has unintentionally desecrated the Sabbath."

I don't know if the "Talmudic tractate of Shabbos, chapter 6, the fourth Mishnah" is Jewish law or not, but this sounds authoritative.

In other words, the prohibition was dreamed up by pointed headed academics.

Every religion has people who won't leave the scripture alone and have to add to it and distort it.

Ha! I figured this is what happened but the *&9*(&$*#$#(@ liberal media is only saying the terrorist was shot. Not by whom. Thanks for the information confirming what I was sure had happened.

This story must be a lie. There is no way that an armed civilian could stop a terrorist. Sarah Brady told me so.

No Bible handy, but I don't recall any prohibition in Deuteronomy for weapons on the Sabbath. Maybe there is, but one would think under the current circumstances that G*d wants his people packing heat.

Let me ask a question to everyone ... stop what you are doing right this second. Ponder this.

If a mad man suddenly appeared in your immediate vicinity and declared "You're all going to die" ... what will you do? Dial 911? Pray? Call Sarah Brady?

Best be thinking about it because the ragheads intend to bring this style of fight to our streets, our offices, our homes and our schools. They aren't recruiting in Canada for the fun of it.

Same actions in New York City would get him locked away for 5 years. Just ask Bernard Goetz.

Scary thought, but I think it's only a matter of time before we start seeing these types of suicide attacks on U.S. soil.

Just one more justification for being armed. At least in Israel the government there is not idiotic about personal self defense. That man should be a national hero.

More interesting is the heroic little fellow who took a knife to the gunfight.

Give credit to Mr. Hazan, but his act was probably made possible by the little guy -- who had to stab him to get his attention.

There, he saw a tall man hitting a shorter man with a knife and jumped to conclusions.  "I thought the small man was the terrorist," Hazan said.  "I was going to hit him with the butt of my pistol, but then I got a knife in my belly," he said.  "I realized I was looking at the wrong man, so I turned my gun and shot the other one."

Was this man literally stabbed in the belly or is the "knife in the belly" a figure of speech meaning he realized he was going to shoot the wrong man?
