Caroline Glick and Carl in Jerusalem draw attention to the video below depicting the massacre of the Fogel family on the West Bank this past Friday by Palestinian Arab terrorists. They note that YouTube and Facebook removed the video within two hours. Why?
Donald Douglas notes a void among the commentary compiled by Memeorandum here. Douglas also links to Melanie Phillips’s post “And still Western ‘liberals’ support these people.” Philips usefully recalls that the Palestinian Authority names squares after people like the butchers of the Fogel family, as well as the fact that Arab incitement is largely unreported by the Western media. As for the Obama administration, I’m afraid that silence would be an improvement over what it will have to offer.
JOHN adds: Yesterday residents of Gaza celebrated the massacre:
Gaza residents from the southern city of Rafah hit the streets Saturday to celebrate the terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar where five family members were murdered in their sleep, including three children.
Residents handed out candy and sweets, one resident saying the joy “is a natural response to the harm settlers inflict on the Palestinian residents in the West Bank.”
