29 years ago He Behaved Like Esther

Religious extremist and mass murderer Baruch Kopel Goldstein is beaten to death with a fire extinguisher by survivors of his massacre at the age of 38 in Cave of the Patriarchs, Hebron, West Bank, Palestine.

Goldstein threw a grenade into the Hall of Isaac where some 800 Muslims were at prayer. Then he opened fire with an IMI Galil assault rifle killing 29 people and wounding another 125. As word of the incident spread throughout the occupied territories, confrontations broke out in which a further 20 Palestinians were killed and 120 injured. In the first 6 days following the massacre 21 Palestinians were killed by live ammunition.
