Hamas Justifies Stabbing Murder of a Baby & a Toddler



The victims of the Itamar settlement attack, 10-year-old Yoav Fogel, Udi Fogel, 37, four-year-old Elad Fogel, three-month old Hadas Fogel and Ruth Fogel, 36.

A Palestinian broke into an Israeli home and stabbed to death all 5 family members inside. The victims included 10-year-old Yoav Fogel; 4-year-old Elad Fogel; and three-month-old Hadas Fogel.

Responding to this attack, Hamas issued the following statement:

The report of five murdered Israelis is not enough to punish someone,” said Hamas Spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri, adding, “However; we in Hamas completely support the resistance against settlers who murder and use crime and terror against the Palestinian people under the auspices of the Israeli occupation soldiers.”

Hamas fails to mention that the children murdered did not murder, use crime, or terror against the Palestinian people.

The depravity of Hamas’ response is astonishing; they justify the murder of children. The only reasonable explanation to Hamas’ response is that they do not consider Jewish children to be children.

Of course, now the Israeli government will respond with a show of force to bring those responsible for the stabbing death to justice, which could even include the killing of children of Palestinians.

This tragic attack reveals a conflict that will not only continue but become more intense. Here, it is clear that a major player–Hamas–cannot be entrusted to bring about anything but more suffering to both the Israeli and Palestinian people. Murdering civilians–and especially children–will have grave consequences.

These murders must be unequivocally condemned by all. They are objectively immoral in the extreme.

Yet many so-called “freedom” fighters for the Palestinians have and will continue to prolong the conflict by allowing hate to conquer all.
