Danny Ayalon, Deputy Foreign Minister of the State of Israel, tweeted: "Is it possible to make peace when cold-blooded child murderers are venerated as heroes and legends?"
Of course not. Is "peace" possible when the root cause is never acknowledged? When Islamic antisemitism calls for the annihilation of the Jews and has for centuries? It's in the quran and it is the motive for Islam's war on the Jews. The destruction of the Jewish state is an Islamic imperative. The existence of Israel is an attack on Muslims.
Watch: Relatives praise Fogel family murderer on Palestinian TV
Mother, aunt of Palestinian who took part in Itamar massacre appear on show focusing on prisoners held in IsraelElior Levy
During a program aired on Palestinian television last week, the aunt of one of the Palestinians who took part in the brutal murder of five members of the Fogel family in the West Bank last march referred to him as a "hero" and "legend."
In August an Israeli court sentenced Hakim Awad to five consecutive life sentences for his part in the Itamar settlement massacre.
- Palestinian baby killer: Proud of what I did
- Op-ed: Death to baby killers
- Rivlin in Itamar: Israel is ours in its entirety
Awad's cousin Amjad was also sentenced to five life sentences and an additional seven years for brutally stabbing to death Udi and Ruth Fogel and three of their children: Yoav (11) Elad (4) and four-month-old baby Hadas, last March.
In response to the aunt's comments, the show's host said, "We also wish them (murderers) well."
The aunt went on to read a poem she had written in the murderers' honor, while Hakim Awad's mother sent her regards to her son and proudly mentioned that he was the perpetrator of the Itamar massacre.
No one in the West (except for Jew-haters, of course) could conceive of celebrating such a thing. But this cold-blooded murder is exalted in the Muslim world. There is no peace with savages.
Three-year-old Jewish boy
Father and 3-month-old infant, Hadas
The family has given permission to show these photographs so that civilized men would understand what the Jews face from their Islamic enemies. This is the first time the people of Israel have done this. The world ignores the Jewish dead; what choice did they have?
On Friday night at 10:30 pm the terrorists entered the house through the living room picture window. They did not notice the 6-year-old boy sleeping on the couch and continued on to the bedroom where they slashed the throats of the father and newborn baby who were sleeping there. The mother came out of the bathroom and was stabbed on its threshold. The evidence shows that she tried to fight the terrorists. They then slashed the throat of the 11-year old-son who was reading in bed. They did not notice the 2-year old asleep in his bed, but murdered the 3-year old with two stabs to his heart. After that, they locked the door, exited through the window and escaped.
The 12-year-old daughter returned home at 00:30 and found the door locked. She asked a neighbor, Rabbi Yaakov Cohen, of the Itamar Yeshiva, to help her. He brought a weapon with him once he noticed tracks and mud near the house. The two woke up the 6-year old sleeping in the living room by calling through the window and when he opened the door, the Rabbi returned to his home. When she entered the bedrooms, the young daughter saw the horrific bloodsoaked scene and ran out of the house screaming. The neighbor ran back and fired several shots in the air to alert security personnel. Within a short time, large police and IDF forces arrived and began intensive searches to see if the terrorists were still in the community. At 03:30 a.m., military trackers discovered footprints leading to the Arab village of Avrata.
The broadcast was aired as part of a weekly show on the Palestinian state-run station called "For You," which focuses on Palestinian prisoners held in Israel.
The broadcast was reported by Palestinian Media Watch – an Israel-based media watchdog organization.
