Name : Baruch Kappel Goldstein

 

Details :

 


Category: Mass Murder

Location: Hebron, West Bank

Date: February 25, 1994

Crime: Known forever as the Cave of the Patriarch's Massacre, Goldstein entered a room in a mosque full of Muslims deep in prayer and opened fire. Twenty nine were killed and another 150 wounded before Goldstein was subdued and subsequently beaten to death.

Biography: Baruch Kappel Goldstein was born on December 9, 1956 in Brooklyn, New York into an Orthodox Jewish family. He attended a religious school and went onto university where he received his medical training at Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He emigrated to Israel and served as a physician in the Israeli Defense Force. Following his active military career, he served in the reserves and then settled down to practice emergency medicine near Hebron, West Bank. Goldstein's radical views were prevalent throughout his career as he was known to refuse treatment to non-Jews. On February 25, 1994, that calendar year's 'Purim' day (A day celebrating Jewish deliverance from those that wanted to harm them), Goldstein put on his military reserve uniform, and fully armed, made his way to the Cave of the Patriarch's. As Goldstein was mowing down the Palestinians in prayer, a mosque security guard attacked Goldstein from behind with a fire-extinguisher and disarmed him. The surviving crowd then swarmed Goldstein and beat him to death. A shrine was erected in Goldstein's honor in a Jewish settlement near Hebron that is named after the founder of a far-right political party, where those with extreme right wing political views would worship at the place of his gravesite. In 1999, due to mounting political pressure about the shrine in honor of a terrorist, the Israeli army bulldozed the site and prayer area.
