Ido Zoldan, 29 and a father of two, was murdered in a Muslim terrorist shooting attack in Samaria around 11:00 pm Monday night.
Palestinian Authority Muslim terrorists fired on the man as he drove past the village of Funduk, near Kedumim. Paramedics who arrived at the scene were unable to save his life.
Zoldan, of Shavei Shomron, will be buried on Tuesday at 1:00 PM in Kedumim. He is survived by his wife Tehila and his two small children, three-year-old Aharon and one-year-old Rachel. The family moved to Shavei Shomron after they were displaced from Homesh in the Disengagement of 2005.
According to initial information, a Muslim terrorist cell was waiting in ambush in the area for Israeli vehicles. When Ido, who was riding alone, came into range, the enemy attackers sprayed the vehicle with gunfire. The driver was critically injured, with multiple gunshot wounds, and he apparently died within minutes.
The Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades said it carried out the attack to demonstrate its opposition to the planned Annapolis conference. IDF officials have warned that terrorists will increase their efforts to harm Israelis during the days leading up to the meeting. The conference will be held at some point in the next 30 days, which, according to recent reports, could mean as early as next week.
After his expulsion from Homesh, Ido Zoldan became one of the core leaders of the Homesh First movement, which seeks to reestablish a Jewish presence in the Samaria town.
The terror victim's father, Nachman Zoldan, is among the leading building contractors in Judea and Samaria. Ido had joined his father in the Kedumim 3000 Company, which has been responsible for construction projects throughout Jude, Samaria and Gaza. According to a relative of the family, Amatzia Haeitan, the Zoldan family "builds for the sake of ideology and in order to build up the Land of Israel." Haeitan said that the younger Zoldan had introduced the idea of seeking out Jewish labor for work on the company's construction sites.
"He lived this land and the people of Israel," Haeitan added, "and he was always happy."
On Monday night, the Council of Jewish Communities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza (Yesha) called the killing Israel's "reward" for agreeing earlier in the day to release 441 more Arab terrorists from prison.

Another Israeli Jew murdered by Muslims
Palestinian muzbots doing what they do best - killing Jews. This is Israel's reward for sitting down and negotiating with Muslim barbarians (sorry for the oxymoron) who have not evolved since the 7th century. Where's the international outrage? Via Ynet:
