Every dead Jew is another victory for Hamas. Instead of condemning the Palestinian terror attack that left one Israeli man dead (and his wife and son wounded), Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh praised the shooting, stating that it ‘brought back life to the path of resistance’ against Israel. For once, the truth about Palestinian terror was in the mainstream media.
The prime minister of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Tuesday praised a shooting that killed an Israeli and wounded his wife and son as they drove through the West Bank the previous evening en route to a Passover Seder.
Speaking in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh said the attack outside the city of Hebron “brought back life to the path of resistance” against Israel and warned of more attacks in the Palestinian territory.
The other side of the story, on Arutz Sheva: Hadassah Mizrahi recounts the ambush that killed her husband and left her wounded. ‘My children will also serve this country.’
Hadassah Mizrahi, whose husband, Chief Superintendent Baruch Mizrahi, was murdered on Monday, described the terror attack on Channel 2 television Wednesday.
“We were driving from Modi’in to Kiryat Arba,” she said. “At the Tarkumia checkpoint, we said hello to the soldiers, and kept going. After the first roundabout, a terrorist was standing at the roadside. Baruch shouted ‘A terrorist! Shooting!’ and pressed the gas pedal.”
“Then I took a bullet,” she continued, calmly. “Baruch’s foot was still on the gas. The vehicle started to zigzag. I took the wheel and kept driving, away from the terrorists. I saw that we had gotten pretty far away and lowered the gear. Meanwhile, the bullets were still flying by us and I told the children ‘duck down, duck down. Everything is OK.’

Abbas, high-ranking PA official condemn murder in Israeli press – but still continue to endorse terror against Israelis.

The pledge was announced just a few weeks after news surfaced that a man had killed several Jewish Israelis for financial reasons, using the stipend money as an incentive to fund his own wedding.
The Israeli government only recently released its annual “Palestinian Incitement Index“, which showed that incitement against Israel and the Jewish people is continuing on official media channels including – inter alia – by bodies that are very close to the PA Chairman and in educational and religious networks.
Such incitement ranges from the glorification of Nazism and the lionization of Adolf Hitler, to programs on official PA television featuring heavily-stereotyped Jews as villains (and encouraging violence against them), and various TV and radio shows which literally wipe the Jewish state off the map.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu explicitly linked Mizrahi’s murder with the incitement Tuesday night.
“This reprehensible murder of a man who was traveling with his family to a meal for the Festival of Freedom is the result of the incitement for which the Palestinian Authority is responsible,” he said.
Israel later cancelled a planned meeting with PA negotiators to continue talks in light of the murder.
