Gaza Residents Hand Out Candy to Celebrate Itamar Massacre

For most people, the brutal stabbing murder of a family of five, including an infant, would be a moment of for quiet introspection, even if the event occurred among an “enemy” population. Not so for some people in Gaza. They’re handing out candy in celebration: Gaza celebrates; Fayyad condemns

Gaza residents from the southern city of Rafah on Saturday poured out on the streets to celebrate the terror attack in West Bank settlement of Itamar, in which five family members were murdered in their sleep.

Residents handed out candy and sweets, one resident saying their joy “is a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank.”…

This is, by the way, just the usual behavior, not just from Gazans but from West Bank Arabs as well. It doesn’t hurt the “peace process” or anything else to be aware of that reality. In fact, denying or ignoring it makes peace even more difficult to achieve.

…The Hamas movement accused the Palestinian Authority’s security apparatus of arresting three of its activists nearby Qalqilya and Jenin.

“The report of five murdered Israelis is not enough to punish someone,” stated Hamas Spokesperson Sami Abu Zuhri, adding, “However; we in the Hamas completely support the resistance against settlers who murder and use crime and terror against the Palestinian people under the auspices of the Israeli occupation soldiers.”

A pamphlet distributed by the Islamic group stated that the PA also detained activists from Nablus, who were previously imprisoned and released.

According to unverified report, Fatah’s military wing – the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades – assumed responsibility for the attack. A group spokesperson told a Palestinian news agency that a cell of militants infiltrated the settlement of Itamar and committed the attack…

How much incitement, how much demonization must a person go through to perpetrate such a crime? How much must have penetrated a population for them to celebrate it?
