Yet again, the Palestinians have just held, in both Gaza and the West Bank, ghoulish celebrations of the murder of Israeli civilians, including a six-year-old child. More on these celebrations can be found here: “Palestinians Celebrate Murder of Israelis in Terrorist Attack, Media Headlines Call Victims ‘Settlers,’” by Dion J. Pierre, Algemeiner, February 10, 2023:
Images on social media circulated Friday of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza celebrating a terrorist attack in Jerusalem that left two Israelis dead on Friday morning, just hours before the beginning of Shabbat.
In a video posted to Twitter, a man instructs children in Gaza to hand out pastries to passerby in honor of 31-year-old Hussein Qaraqe, who rammed his car into a bus stop in the East Jerusalem in an attack that killed six-year-old Yaakov Pelli and twenty-year-old newly-wed Alter Shlomo Lederman while injuring five others. Images also purported to show members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) in Khan Yunis, Gaza, distributing sweets.
These sweets — pastries and candies — are always distributed by Palestinians after an especially satisfying terror attack on Israelis. Sometimes it’s more than just sweets, when a large number of Israelis have been murdered. When seven Israeli civilians, coming out of a synagogue, were murdered in Neve Yaakov in early February, Palestinians handed out pastries, honked car horns in frenetic glee, set off firecrackers, and engaged in a great deal of Allahu-akbaring. Much mafficking. And a good time was had by all.
“The heroic action in Jerusalem is a natural response to all the crimes of the occupation against the Palestinian people, the last of which is the massacre in the Aqabat Jaber camp,” Hamas spokesman Hazem Kassem said on Friday, citing an IDF operation to neutralize roughly half a dozen terrorists who conspired to commit an attack on an Israeli restaurant in January.
The “heroic action” consisted of Palestinian Hussein Qaraqe crashing his car into a group of Israelis, mostly mothers and children, standing at a bus stop. Among them were a six-year-old boy and his eight-year-old brother. The six-year-old died, and the eight-year-old is now fighting for his life. A 20-year-old young man returning home for Shabbat was also killed. Several others were seriously wounded. A “heroic action” indeed.
In another celebratory statement, the Islamic Jihad Movement (PIJ) said, “We affirm that this blessed operation, which healed the hearts of our people, came as a natural and legitimate response to the crimes of the occupation.”
Of course. Nothing heals the hearts of the Palestinians like seeing dead Israelis. Murder is a “natural and legitimate response” to the crimes of the Zionists, who stubbornly refuse to give the Palestinians what they want, and deserve – a Palestinian state “from the river to the sea.”
After the attack, which occurred amid escalating Palestinian violence against Israelis, Qaraqe’s uncle told Palestine Post Network that Qaraqe “loved Palestine all his life, and he was suffering from a severe injury in his back.”
I don’t know why his aching back is significant. Perhaps it is meant to suggest that even though Qaraqe had an aching back, he was still determined to go through with his heroic deed. A determined martyr for Palestine.
Qaraqe, who lived in a rented house in Issawiya — a Palestinian neighborhood in East Jerusalem — was a “mentally disturbed” person only several days removed from being an in-patient at a psychiatric hospital, according to Gili Cohen, a correspondent for Israeli public broadcaster KAN. He also, Hebrew outlet N12 reported, had a history of lauding terrorists on social media, posting “Glory to the pure souls” in reference to those who committed previous atrocities.”
Where is the evidence that Qaraqe’s murders were the product of a “mentally disturbed” individual, rather than the natural expression of the jihad ideology that has inspired so many of millions of Muslims? He lauded terrorists on social media, but in this he was no different from hundreds of thousands of other Palestinians, all of whom wished “glory to the pure souls” of their “martyrs,” that is, those who died while murdering Israelis. The outward evidence suggests not mental disorder, but an understandable desire to make his own mark as a “martyr” and, what’s more, to ensure that his family would, as a result of his “heroic action,” receive generous lifetime support from the Palestinian Authority, as part of its “Pay-for-Slay” program.
Meanwhile, various Arab-language media outlets described the Israeli victims as “settlers.”
Roya News, a Jordanian outlet, ran an article about the incident with a headline saying, “Two settlers killed in car-ramming operation in occupied in Jerusalem,” while a Palestinian outlet said, “Martyrdom of the executor. Two settlers were killed and others injured in a run-over operation in Jerusalem.” The Palestinian Chronicle, an outfit based in Mountlake Terrace, Washington, reported that Qaraqe “rammed his vehicle into a group of illegal Jewish settlers” after saying that Israel “claimed” that he had done it.
“Settlers.” “Illegal settlers.” Is a six-year-old child a “settler”? That’s what various Arabic-language media called him. They never revealed his age. Was someone still little enough to have a teddy bear a “settler” who deserved to be killed? And his eight-year-old brother, now in critical condition, was also described as a “settler.” Remember: this was a “heroic action.” No need to provide the ages of those “settlers.” Not everyone would be impressed.
In the United States, a headline by CNN said “Two dead including child as car rams people at Jerusalem bus stop,” prompting criticism from the Israel Foreign Ministry.
“This wasn’t a self driving car @CNN,” the Ministry said on Twitter. “The driver a Palestinian terrorist *intentionally* rammed into a bus stop packed with children and families traveling before Shabbat.”
What explains – for nothing excuses — CNN’s headline that endows the car with agency and denies that of the driver bent on murder? “Two dead…as car rams people”? That will never do. Here’s what will do: “Palestinian rams car into Israelis, killing two, including a six-year-old.”
Think, CNN. Just think before you headline.
And while we have you on the line, how about doing a story on how the Palestinians pull out all the stops when they celebrate the murders of Israelis? For many in your audience, that will prove most instructive.
The so-called “Palestinians” who are actually Jordanian Arabs -want a state of their own – ‘from the river to the sea.” They already have one – its called Jordan, and they shouldn’t even have that! The post WW! Balfour Declaration gave Israel the land to the East an West of the River Jordan. The brother of the Saudi king complained that he got nothing, so over 80% of Israel was illegally carved off and given to him.
9-11 same story – different details
They celebrated all over the muslim world after 9-1-1, including turkey and syria.
So lets go dig some more out of the rubble. Give, give. give, They would do the same for you, ya know.
Spurwing Plover says
They still havn,t progressed much past the Stoneage these heathens and the bring their kids up with this fake religion
Algorithmic Analyst says
Harnessing the power of hate by teaching their children to hate Israelis.
I believe the eight year old has also passed away. And these are the people that Biden is funding. He and his Party are a disgrace.
Yes. The older brother died and the father is critical. Yet we Israelis are expected to bend over backwards so as not to upset these people. No more. The Israeli public voted pretty decisively for a right wing government. The left needs to think about why that happened instead of trying to overturn the election results with contrived protests over judicial reform. And the new government needs to come down on every terrorist like a ton of bricks.
Spurwing Plover says
Then the liberals with sawdust for Brains wonder why we want a Border Fence and not a Bridge
Nicolas Carras says
Gazans are lucky that the Israelis are not barbarians, nor that the president of Israel is Putin.
And Biden still gives the billions of our tax dollars every year to pay the murders and their families a lifetime pension. Just sick.
What CNN (Globalist,New World Order,Great Reset ) is part of the SOROS plan.
A) Soros is JEWISH but he wants Israel to disappear.He was actually a teenager in Hungary during WWII,and helped Nazis expropriate Jewish homes.
B) He had false papers,so they didn’t know Soros was Jewish.
C) He falls under the category of the “Self-Hating Jew”,as described in the book:
“Jewish Self-Hatred” (by THEODOR LESSING,Jewish ) (1930)
D) Another who falls under it is ZELENSKY. In 2021 ,( Zelensky became president in 2019) BEFORE the war,
a Jewish news website TRIBUNE JUIVE,pro-Israel, FRENCH, published an article detailing ALL the monuments,plaques,statues in Ukraine
in honor of Ukrainians who had killed Jews and/or Poles during WW II.
BANDERA was included but also plaques in honor of SS soldiers (Ukrainians)and others who killed Jews:
SS soldier Dmytro Paliiv (1896-1944), Oleksa Babiy (1909-1944) ( participated in the killing of 33,000 Jews in BABI YAR,near KIEV),
Ivan Kedyulich (1912-1945)( also killed Jews in Babi Yar),
Oleksandr Lutskyi (1910-1946) ( SS ),etc,etc,etc
Here is the article,in FRENCH:
“Lev Golinkin. Monuments aux collaborateurs nazis en Ukraine. 27 Janvier 2021”
( republished by them this JANUARY 2023)
Israel is NOT independent,but has to obey the GLOBALISTS. The proof is its fanatical,suicidal forcing of the PFIZER vaccine on its population.
While CHINA and RUSSIA and INDIA have NEVER authorized the Pfizer vaccine,they are not ruled by the Globalists.
India refused because Pfizer:
A) Refused to obey Indian law to first carry out LOCAL clinical trials to test its safety.
B) Pfizer wanted the Indian government to SIGN a document that if the vaccine was dangerous Pfizer would have LEGAL IMMUNITY . India refused.
The Israeli government has BETRAYED its people,and they KNEW what they were doing.
C) A famous JAPANESE doctor MASANORI FUKUSHIMA,is SUING the Japanese government (another SLAVE of the Globalists) right now because the Pfizer vaccine,legal in Japan:
1.Causes clots and thus HEART ATTACKS (dangerous)
2. Does NOT protect against Covid( “is useless”).
3. Destroys the IMMUNE system and should be prohibited NOW.
FUKUSHIMA cites the case of Dr. ASEEM MALHOTRA in the U.K. He first defended the vaccines, then his FATHER DIED, and he is now an articulate and powerful critic of the vaccines.
MALHOTRA was listed as one of “The Sunday Times” 500 MOST INFLUENTIAL people in 2016
and was TWICE recognized as one of the TOP FIFITY black and minority ethnic community member pioneers in the UK’s National Health Service by the Health Service Journal.
In the meantime Israel continues to obey the Globalists,and NO prohibition of the Pfizer vaccine.
No doubt SOROS,who is anti-Israel, is very happy virtually the entire Israeli population has been vaccinated with
the Pfizer vaccine, since it will destroy Israel.
Before we can say whether or not the vaccine will destroy Israel, let’s see how many Jewish babies were born after 2021. If there is a significant decline since 2020 and earlier, we have a problem here.

Those vicious and malice-filled “Palestinians were celebrating the murder of two Israelis children in Jerusalem was as callous as it was terrible. It was very terrible.
Well , Muslims do claim that they respect the book of Proverbs of the Bible.
Than if their claim is true ,they need to read “Proverbs. 17:5. which reveals that “He who is glad at calamity will not go unpunished.” [N.K.J.V.]
Walter Sieruk says
About those despicable and horrendous murders by jihadists in which “‘Palestinian.”Muslims celebrate”
In their malicious and vicious Muslim /Arabs who called themselves the “Palestinians” do celebrate and praise that cowardly jihadist who murdered those two little Jewish boys doe’s clearly reveal their malice-filled Islamic spirit
Still ,its good to know that the Israeli law enforcement will come down hard on those savage death inflecting jihadists.
As the Bible reads “Those who forsake the law praise the wicked, but such as keep the law contend with them.” Proverbs 28:4. [N.K.J.V.]
Walter Sieruk says
This news report how in Jerusalem all those Muslim celebrate the cold blooded murder of Israelis and even handled out candy.
This reveals that they are exposing their very own callous and malice -filled Islamic spirit . That is a reflection of their violent and murderous religion which is Islam.
This is also a blatant reminder that many of the Muslim /Arabs who call themselves “Palestinians” are very mad that President Trump has recognized Jerusalem as the capital city of the State of Israel.
Yet many of those same “Palestinians” were so very happy that they even celebrated and passed out candy with malicious joy when they found out about the mass jihad murders in America on September 11, 2001.
So, who cares if they are mad or not about the US embassy move to Jerusalem ?
Those two cute little Arab boys proffering trays of baklava to passing motorists are about the age of the two equally cute little Jewish boys whose murder they are celebrating. Does nobody see the irony in that?
E T Gwynn says
“Palestinians Celebrate Murder of Israelis
Welcome to the Religion of Peace.”
As in the “saving of democracy”, one needs define terminology.
When a dhimmicrat prattles of saving democracy, he certainly does mean the democracy of a republic with representation by elected representatives. He means mob rule wherein the voters vote themselves money (for a while).
When a Palestinian preaches peace he means the quiet that comes after a genocide of the “other”.
Walter Sieruk says
With that horrible demonic and horrendously despicable fiendish villain , Joe Biden sitting in the Oval Office of the White House masquerading as a real ,genuine US President . Biden treacherously betrays Israel and supports the murderous PA by sending the jihad entity one billion dollars for the American taxpayer, Then Biden also aids other violent and deadly forces of Islamic terrorism.
Therefore is wise to remember that as in the days of Nehemiah when he and his men were busy in the reconstruction of the walls around Jerusalem and the Arab became furious and indigent at this at this grand project of the rebuilding of the walls. Neh 4:1 and they thus despised the Jews , Neh. 4:4 ,and schemed terrorist attacks against them.
So the Jewish men set up watch for such attacks, Neh 4:8, therefore ,on this watch they set up guards to be ready for those terrorists attacks , Neh 4;16.
Likewise, in this twenty –first century vigilance of strong security in nessasy in Israel against all the future Islamic terrorists attack against the State of Israel.
The Israel security force and military Israeli police as well the citizens of the modern State of Israel need to keep aware vigilant and on guard against attacks, just an in the day of Nehemiah in ancient Israel.
