  • Elder of Ziyon
Times of Israel reports:
Palestinian teenager opened fire at IDF soldiers in the northern West Bank Sunday morning and was shot dead along with a second teenager in an ensuing firefight, the army said.

The troops shot the two after coming under fire while patrolling outside the Israeli settlement of Hinanit, near Jenin. The soldiers arrived in the area in response to reports of a rock throwing incident, the army said in a statement. There were no injuries on the Israeli side.

“Earlier this morning two Palestinians armed with a rifle attacked IDF soldiers,” the statement said. “The perpetrators hurled rocks at passing vehicles west of Jenin. When forces arrived at the scene an assailant opened fire at the soldiers. The force responded to the shooting and fired toward the attackers, resulting in their deaths.”

The Palestinian Health Ministry confirmed that two teenagers had been killed near the village age of al-‘Arqa in Jenin. They were identified by the Health Ministry as Nihad Raed Muhammad Waked and Fouad Marwan Khaled Waked, both 15 years old. Unconfirmed reports said they were cousins.
The meme that the mainstream media has pushed is that the new wave of terrorists are "frustrated from nearly 50 years of Israeli occupation."

Let's glance at Nihad Raed's Facebook page.

It is not atypical of the pages of any Palestinian Arab youth. And what it shows is that Nihad (who had just turned 16)  had a love of billiards....

And violence. (He seems to have created this video.)

He seems to have posed with an automatic weapon:

Nihad  doesn't look like he was ever interested in non-violent solutions, as this cartoon of the iconic Palestinian symbol shows:
"This is my childhood, take it from me as a present... And only give me a gun"

But there are plenty of photos of him with his friends, smiling as they hang out. He captions some with their names. And he had a couple photos of the Temple Mount.

His last post, from last night, says "Oh Lord, you know my state the best, grant me what I wish." In retrospect, it means going to Paradise as a martyr, as two of his friends posted after his death.

Did Nihad  telegraph his intentions beforehand?

Perhaps. A month ago he wrote a poem of sorts that said:

Don't be sad when an injustice was done to you, Allah has promised to grant victory to those who have been wronged. "I swear by His Holy Being (i.e. Allah), by my honor and glory, I will grant you victory, even if after a while" And for this/therefore??? I will not be sad when I see the oppressor shaking. [I'll write] a new line"

This wasn't "frustration." This was brainwashing, a constant diet of incitement in  media that showed that death for the sake of Allah was the most desirable thing and terrorists are romanticized.

(h/t Ibn Boutros)

UPDATE: Frighteningly, he seems to have gone to Israel last August, checking in from Acre.

We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.

Elder of Ziyon - حـكـيـم صـهـيـون

This blog may be a labor of love for me, but it takes a lot of effort, time and money.
