Three-month-old Hadar Fogel, two of her brothers 4-year-old Elad and 11-year-old Yoav, and their parents Udi and Ruth were gruesomely stabbed to death as they slept in the Jewish community of Itamar three days ago. Palestinians sang songs, danced in the street, and gave out candy to everyone. CNN titled its report on what happened as: Israeli Family of 5 Killed in ‘Terror Attack,’ Military Says. ‘Terror Attack’ in apostrophes…. ‘Military Says’? Is there anyone in the world who thinks this barbaric atrocity was not a terrorist attack?
Apparently yes according to CNN and definitely yes according to the Palestinians. The Fogels were barely buried when on Sunday, the Palestinians named a square in the Palestinian town of El-Bireh after Dalal al-Mughrabi–the leader of the 1978 Coastal Road massacre. Mughrabi and her terrorist cohorts murdered 37 Israelis (including 13 children), one American journalist, and wounded 72 others. Mughrabi and nine of her fellow terrorists were subsequently killed by the IDF. In dedicating a plaque to Mughrabi, Sabri Seidan (Palestinian Authority Presidential Advisor to Mahmoud Abbas) said: “We stand here in praise of our martyrs and in loyalty to all of the martyrs of the national movement.” The plaque shows Mughrabi cradling a rifle against a backdrop map of Israel, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The square was festooned with Palestinian flags and banners. The Palestinians are still dancing in the street about dead Israeli children.
