Cave of the Patriarchs Massacre: Baruch Goldstein, an Israeli settler in the far-right Israeli Kach movement, kills 29 Muslim worshippers and wounding another 125 at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron in the West Bank.

Goldstein only stops shooting people because he runs out of ammunition, at which point the survivors beat him to death. Most Israelis will denounce Baruch Goldstein as an insane murderer, but settlers and extremists will regard him as a martyr.

Goldstein's grave will say that the "gave his life for the people of Israel, its Torah and land" until the Israeli government tears it down.
