Daniel Wultz, the 16-year-old American who was critically wounded in a Tel Aviv suicide bombing three weeks ago and died of his wounds on Sunday, was buried on Tuesday at the Chabad house in the south Florida community of Weston. His body was flown to the US on Monday after an emotional memorial service in a Jeruslaem synagogue. A moment of silence in his honor was also observed before tip-off of game 5 of the NBA's Eastern Conference semi-finals between the Miami Heat and the New Jersey Nets. The collective grief of some 400 mourners filled the Nitzanim Synagogue and spilled into the streets of Jerusalem's tree-lined Baka neighborhood Monday, as family, friends and strangers inspired by Daniel Wultz's courageous 27-day fight for life came to pay last respects. The service was restrained, but murmuring among those assembled expressed satisfaction that IDF troops and elite border policemen had shot dead seven Palestinians Sunday - among them Elias Ashkar, the mastermind of the April 17 felafel stand bombing that claimed the lives of Wultz and 10 others. "It will not bring Daniel back, but it will send a definite message to those that seek to kill Jews," said Menahem Kuttner, director of activities of Tzeirei Chabad Terror Victims Projects, who organized Monday's service. "It is not only the IDF's duty to defend, but to prevent and to retaliate after terrorist attacks." "On one hand it's poetic justice, but it also shows the futility of it all," said a family member. "Daniel's still dead. Nothings changes." "Our biggest revenge is showing that we are not stopping our lives," said Yuval Wultz, Daniel's cousin.
