The World Jewish Congress harshly condemned the terrorist attack on Friday night in the settlement of Halamish, in which a Palestinian terrorist infiltrated a home during Shabbat dinner and brutally murdered three Israelis.


“The World Jewish Congress unequivocally condemns the heinous and horrific attack in the settlement of Halamish tonight which took the lives of three innocent Israelis sitting down for Shabbat dinner.

“Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims, and with Israelis and Jewish people around the world.

“We demand that the Palestinian Authority take immediate measures to crack down on the incitement that led to this attack and make every effort to prevent such an atrocity from happening again.”

MDA later reported that two of the wounded, a 40-year-old man and 60-year-old man had died of their wounds. The third of the wounded, a woman, was transported to Shaare Tzedek hospital. But the toll has been raised to three.

News outlets reported that the assailant was shot but not fatally by a neighbour. Reports state that to was a reprisal for the events at Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

    What sort of question is that to ask when we’re speaking of murder, Adrian Jackson? The Israelis always demolish any illegally built housing, so you can assume the settlement is legal if that piece of knowledge is really so important to you.

    Was this a legal or an illegal settlement?

      That’s all you have to say, you POS? Three people are slaughtered as they eat a meal, and you say that?! Where is your humanity? What sort of person says that?! Crawl off and die, you thing without a soul.

    • Jack Morris says:

      Legal or illegal is not the question here. The fact is that Muslims who call themselves ‘Palestinians’ for propaganda purposes are keen to go out and murder innocent people under the tutelage of their Jew-hating religious leaders. Andrew, you seem to suggest that it is OK to murder innocent people just because they are Jews. That is all the more reason for Israel and the rest of the stupid world to realise once and for all that the ‘Palestinians’ cannot be trusted.
      Israel can’t let the current status quo with Judea and Samaria continue in limbo any more. It’s time for Israel to either annex these territories or to unilaterally declare a Palestinian state and withdraw its services, maintaining a military presence in what they leave behind in order to keep the peace and prevent attacks against Israel that we have seen time and time again from Gaza.
