Celebrating a Hebron militant (oops, terrorist)

November 24, 2016 22:54

It appears that settlers are now apeing Hamas in celebrating their martyrs.

A video obtained by Ynet depicts Jewish residents of east Jerusalem's Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood during their Purim celebrations singing songs of praise for Baruch Goldstein, a Jewish terrorist who murdered 29 Palestinians 16 years ago at the Cave of the Patriarchs.
One of the leaders of the leftist campaign in the neighborhood, Assaf Sharon, described to Ynet: "The settlers are allowed to hold political activities and aggravating and offensive as could possibly be, and the neighborhood's original residents, who are still a majority there, are not allowed to do a thing. We saw them enter a house, have a party, and play very loud music."
Ynet asked the Jewish residents themselves for a response to the songs of praise for Goldstein, but they preferred not to respond.

Any condemnation from the Israeli government? Board? ZF? Nada.
