American hired and fired in Israel goes postal, kills. Israel will now better screen applicants (i.e. Americans are dangerous)

In any case, Americans need to be examined more closely, we seem to come from a dangerous and murderous culture.

Jewish Agency-sponsored internship brought American William Hershkovitz, who killed one at an Eilat hotel, to Israel.
