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. 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.

  4. Lard Bullets - Brilliant!!
