|The new Halabi home paid for by supporters of murderers|
Mahmoud Abbas said in his interview with Channel 2 in Israel:
When a child goes and takes a knife, he does not consult with anyone. Even with his parents, nor his brother. He doesn't say: "I'm taking a knife and going out". No sensible person would allow his son to come to him and tell him: "I want to take a knife and kill", and he will answer him: "you are wise." It is not possible. It is not possible. He will take away the knife and lock him inside. Parents do not want it....Ask yourself why this boy, 15, takes a knife and knew he was going to die, and still going. Ask yourself why. This is because there is no hope for him.
All of this is contradicted by the case of Muhannad Halabi.
murdered Nehemia Lavi and Aharon Bennett on October 3, also stabbing Bennett's wife in the neck and shooting and injuring their 2 year old son. As Odel Bennett begged for help, Arabs in the shuk spat at her and laughed.
Halabi didn't say he was going to stab Jews to death because of "no hope." Rather he said that he was angry at supposed attacks on the Al Aqsa Mosque and he posted on Facebook that he wanted to start a revolution.
He showed this post to his parents before his murder spree who agreed with his sentiments. “I will always be proud that my son sacrificed his life for the liberation of his homeland,” said his mother Suhair.
He is universally regarded as a hero in Palestinian society, even though his victims included a rabbi, a woman and a child. Everything that Abbas claims about the murderers and their families is proven wrong by Halabi.
When Israel demolished his family home to deter future murders, Palestinians immediately raised a large amount of money to build or buy the family of the "martyr" a new house and to blunt any deterrent for encouraging children to murder Jews.
Now, the family has purchased a 360 square meter, $175,000 villa near Ramallah with the funds raised from fellow supporters of terrorism.
It doesn't appear that Abbas' alleged policy of discouraging terror attacks is successful. Unfortunately, his policy of making "martyrs" into heroes is working very well.
