The father of terror victim Hadas Malka, 23, demonstrated the stark contrast between Israelis, who cherish life, and Palestinian society, which incites murder and praises “martyrdom.”
Upon arriving in Israel Wednesday to restart Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner, together with US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman, made a condolence visit to the family of Hadas Malka, a young policewoman who was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist Friday in the Old City of Jerusalem.
The visit lasted about half an hour, a close friend of the Malka family said, Ynet News reported.
Kushner expressed condolences on behalf of the US, as requested by President Donald Trump, the report said.
According to Ynet, “the father told him that on the one hand there is a mother who is crying and in pain over the death of her daughter. On the other hand, there is a mother who is praising and glorifying her son who should have killed more people from her point of view. The father addressed this stark contrast.”
He was referring to the incitement to terror prevalent in Palestinian society, sanctioned by the Palestinian Authority, despite PA President Mahmoud Abbas’ claim, when meeting Trump earlier this year at the White House, that Palestinian children are raised in a culture of peace.
Israel Police arrested two people in connection with last the terror attack, and in fact, the terrorist’s mother is among the suspects. A resident of the Palestinian village of Deir Abu Mash’al, near Ramallah, where the terror cell was situated, she was arrested on suspicion of forging contacts with the intent of committing a crime. She is also suspected of incitement related to recent statements lauding shahids [martyrs] and calling for the harming of Jews.
“We will meet in heaven. I’m proud. I wanted him to kill 20, 50, 100 of them,” the Palestinian mother stated after the attack.
