Palestinian Brutally Murders Family in Israel

A family of five, mother father and three children were brutally murdered in Israel. This act of savagery was greeted with celebration in Gaza, where Palestinians distributed candy in celebration. Prime Minister Salam Fayyad condemned the murders with the usual qualifiers noting that he condemns the attacks “just as I have denounced crimes against Palestinians.”

The mainstream media, busy with the Japanese earthquake has barely mentioned this event, and no emergency meeting of the UN Security Council has taken place. The reports keep hammering the fact that the victims were settlers in the West Bank, as if this somehow mitigates the crime. A reminder to all of them; these type of brutality has taken place in settlements and in Israel proper for decades.
