Fogel Family Murderers Captured

Israeli has arrested two teenage Palestininians from a village near where the Fogel family lived for the murder of the five Fogel family members, including three children.  As reported by the Jersusalem Post (h/t Israel Matzav):
Two Palestinian youths from the village of Awarta were arrested in recent days for the brutal slaying of five members of the Fogel family in their Itamar home last month, the IDF and Shin Bet said on Sunday following the lifting of a media ban on the investigation.

The suspects have been named as Hakim Maazan Niad Awad, an 18-year-old high school student, and Amjad Mahmud Fauzi Awad, 19, both from the West Bank village of Awarta, located 2 kilometers south of the settlement of Itamar.

The suspects have confessed to the stabbings and reenacted their acts, security forces said on Sunday. According to Army Radio, they did not express remorse for their crimes.

They are affiliated with the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PLFP) terror group, and received significant assistance from family members and friends after the attack, security forces added.
Israel Matzav provides this account from Israel Radio of how they returned to the house to kill the baby (emphasis mine)
Then they left the house, debated whether to return to look for weapons, returned, heard the baby crying and murdered her. They did not see the other children - they said they would have murdered them too had they seen them. They then stole an M-16 from the Fogel house as well.
Palestinian Authority websites previously had attempted to blame "foreign workers" for the murders.

  1. My heart weeps for the family. As for the "student" and his accomplice, may they burn in hell for all eternity. Returned and killed the crying baby? Really?

  2. Quite simply, gather the decent and loving people from the West Bank village of Awarta into a circle, bring the two now confessed murderers to the center of that circle and drop them into a wood chipper.

  3. It would be a compliment to call these young men "dogs" while being an insult to dogs. Killed the parents; slaughtered the baby? These people are Muslims; I can think of no greater insult to humanity than to so describe someone.

  4. How long will it be before the Palis name a town square in these "heroes" honor? Yes the Jews are the evil ones.

  5. Israel needs to institute the death penalty for crimes like these. Then hang the scum in their village square with a slow noose.

  6. All prayers to the Fogel Family. Prayers to those whom they leave on earth, and to the Nation of Israel.

    These two men acted on what they've been taught. Death to Israel - Death to America.

    America must wake up to the murderer standing over her shoulder. When someone tells you over and over, year after year, generation after generation, that they're going to kill you - believe them. It will likely save your life. On the flip side not believing them will likely get you killed.

  7. Cubanbob, hear! hear!

    Israel needs to get serious about terrorism. Enough of that jail and release nonsense. No feeding them at the state's expense, either. When they commit acts of terrorism, kill them with bullets rubbed in lard and make it known. Also let them know that even the mortar rounds and all military materiel are larded. No paradise for these Muslims. There are enough secularists and Christians in Israel who will happily prepare the larded bullets. Shucks, I'd take the job if they'd pay me right.
