Udi Fogel and his family: victims of jihad

Most of the Fogel family was slaughtered a little over a month ago by Muslims waging jihad fi sabil Allah — “war for the sake of Allah.” Each person in the photo above was killed their home as the family prepared to go to bed: Udi (36), his wife Ruth (35), their children Yoav (11, bottom center), Elad (4, bottom left), and and Hadas (3 months). Ruth and Udi were surprised, fought back, but were killed in their bedroom. Hadas —the infant!— had his throat slit so deep he was almost decapitated. Three children survived: one, a toddler, was found next to his parents’ corpses, trying to make them “wake up.”

Now, weeks later, there’s been a break in the case: Israeli authorities tracked down and arrested the killers, two teenaged members of the terrorist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine:

Two Palestinian youths from the village of Awarta were arrested in recent days for the brutal slaying of five members of the Fogel family in their Itamar home last month, the IDF and Shin Bet said on Sunday following the lifting of a media ban on the investigation.

The suspects have been named as Hakim Maazan Niad Awad, an 18-year-old high school student, and Amjad Mahmud Fauzi Awad, 19, both from the West Bank village of Awarta, located 2 kilometers south of the settlement of Itamar.

The suspects have confessed to the stabbings and re-enacted the murders, security forces said on Sunday. According to Army Radio, they did not express remorse for their crimes.

Both men are affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PLFP) terror group and received significant assistance from family members and friends after the attack, security forces added.

The article also points out that these two went back to kill the baby, after they heard it start crying.

Nothing will ever return the Fogels to life, nor undo the horror the surviving children must live with for the rest of their lives. At least they’ll receive some small measure of justice, but it can never be enough.

PS: It’s a damned shame Israel abolished the death penalty, for if anyone ever deserved to hang by the neck and have their corpses left for the vultures, it’s Hakim and Amjad Awad. But, you know what? The worst they’ll likely get is life, and, given the sick, twisted nature of Palestinian society, they’ll be celebrated as heroes.

    Why is anyone expecting them to show remorse? I am sure they are sorry they missed two kids.

  2. Carlos says:

    (Images of Palestinians celebrating wildly.)

    ‘Nuff said.

    They start building these monsters in grade school over there, brainwashing them to hate Jews with every ounce of their being. Where most of the world teaches their elementary kids the arts and sciences, Palestinian schools teach Hate 101 and the joys of being a martyr and sacrificing yourself for Allah by spilling Jewish blood. They actually rehearse and perform children’s plays with this theme. Sick is too soft a word for this.
    As Leah said, they won’t show remorse because it’s not in them and never was. Like Carlos said, there’ll probably be a parade in their honor. Their families will get blood money, probably from what our government sent to the Palestinians as “humanitarian assistance”.
    I’d better stop here, I’m too pissed off.

    This is why the death penalty was created. Life in prison is such weak sauce for those of us who could do nothing to help that poor family, that has to stand by and watch these savages parade in the streets. Animals understand fear, and death is a pretty fearful event. Let them declare martyrs, I want these two dead for what they did.

  5. Kate says:

    My question is why so many on the left still defend the Palestinian system. Why they don’t question the hatred of Islam and yet castigate Christians who believe God will judge based on a moral system set up that would allow all people to live together in a somewhat peaceful way?

    These two were motivated by evil. They are tools of Satan. Their punishment is sealed eternally if they keep believing the way they do that human life in not sacred.

  6. Carlos says:

    They are the logical end of what flamethrowers become eventually. It’s no wonder the left is so concerned that those evil conservatives tone down their rhetoric, while not being concerned in the least with their own.

  7. Zippy says:

    As Sefton said, they are indoctrinated and brain washed at an early age with such filthy hate. What saddens me is that they feel justified and noble in their cancerous venom. They should be publicly hung for this atrocity.

    Headline in The New York Times: Israelis Arrest Freedom Fighters!

    Islam is a political party. It is NOT a religion. If everyone started writing this comment,it might catch on.You know the politicians,if something is popular ,they will back it.
