#Israel: Anniversary of a jihad mass-murder

Two years ago this week, five members the Fogel family of the West Bank village of Itamar were murdered — stabbed and their throats slit by Muslims waging jihad fi sabil Allah: “war for the sake of Allah.”

Udi Fogel and his family: victims of jihad

Only three children survived; they’re now living with their grandparents:

…14-year-old Tamar, 10-year-old Roi and four-year-old Yishai and have been taken in by Rabbi Yehuda and Tali Ben-Yishai, the parents of Ruth Fogel. In an interview published Friday in Israel Hayom, Rabbi Ben-Yishai said of his daughter, son-in-law and three slain grandchildren, “They’re always with us.”

“What happened was so inhuman that we have gained superhuman strength,” grandmother Tali said. “We know these children will be great people. They will be all right. They will not be damaged. They’re not in trauma anymore. Some children are afraid of what happens around them, but they’re not like that. They’re not the sort who don’t want to go to school or don’t want to get out of bed and spend the day crying.”

For that, we can be glad.

Sadly, the murderers are also alive, serving their sentences in an Israeli jail. It’s a shame and a denial of justice for there to have been no death penalty for this case.

  1. This murder was not a simple US-style home invasion but a cold-blooded savage murder carried out by islamist thugs. The Israelis live much differently than we do. Canada and Mexico do not stand as ominous threats to our security. But Israel lives in a “tough neighborhood” given the fact that every bordering country has vowed to push them into the sea. Death penalty? “Cruel and unusual” has my vote.

    ….at least the Israelis managed to try and convict the shooters. Here in the US, the Fort Hood shooter still hasn’t gone to trial.

  3. Carlos says:

    Just one more example of why people like Chuck Hagel are so wrong on so many levels. They have absolutely no clue about the evil they excuse in the name of tolerance, or diversity, or “international relationships,” or…

    And just one more reason Israel HAS to retaliate every time one or more of the fetid dog jihadis commits an act like this even most animals couldn’t contemplate.
