The candy was in celebration …. simply because the family murdered, was Jewish!
Ask yourself: what kind of animals / barbarians pass out candy to celebrate the murder of children! 1/3rd of Palestinians support the murders! That, according to a poll conducted by the Harry S. Truman Research Institute for the Advancement of Peace at the Hebrew University and the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah.
The world has already forgotten the Itamar atrocity; Israelis have not. You should be grieving and at the same time, …. and at the same time, …. outraged by reactions within the Palestinian Arab community in Gaza. They did the same, after the 9/11 attack.
Reports indicate that Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, the military wing of Fatah, the governing party in the West Bank, took credit.
You need to remember this during the next “Peace Flotilla” …. You need to remember this when the next bomb explodes on the streets of Jerusalem. You need to remember this every time you hear the words: GAZA and EAST BANK!
The Fogels were a young Israeli family who lived in the town of Itamar in Samaria. It’s one of those towns Israel is always being pressured to rub off the map, as part of the long process of rubbing Israel off the map – vigorously pursued by President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
Last Friday, while the family’s 12-year-old daughter Tamar was away at a youth event, terrorists from the Palestinian al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade slipped through the minimal security around Itamar, entered the Fogel home, and slaughtered those home, … with knives. Udi Fogel was 36, while his wife Ruth was 35. Their sons Yoav and Elad were 11 and 4. Their daughter Hadas was three months old. She died on the bed next to her parents with her throat slashed.
The surviving Fogel daughter came home to find her family lying in pools of their own blood, with throats cut and chests torn open. When paramedics arrived, four-year-old Elad was still barely alive, but they couldn’t save him. A stricken paramedic described the murder scene as “shocking… kid’s toys right next to pools of blood.”
The other horrific reality that must be understood is the Palestinians who “hit the streets Saturday to celebrate the terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar,” as reported by Ynet News. They “handed out candy and sweets,” in what one Palestinian described as “a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank.”
The Palestinian Prime Minister issued the usual vague denunciation of violence in general, while refusing to condemn the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade directly, even though they have openly claimed responsibility. Naturally, his statement was qualified with the standard “just as I have denounced crimes against Palestinians” moral equivalency clause.
As Philip Klein of the American Spectator observes, the Palestinian editor was grudgingly willing to condemn the “heartless” murder of the Fogel family, “in the event it was carried out by Palestinians.” Terrorist spin doctors work extra hard at torturing logic to earn their murder candy.
The Israeli Defense Force is still hunting for the killers. It doesn’t look as if they can expect much help from the peace-loving Palestinian populace. The world has indulged a “government” which indulges barbarians for far too long. It must be incredibly painful for those who loved the Fogels to send images of their bloody murders around the world, but they understand that mass graves are dug from the willful ignorance of atrocity.
