The Karate Kid in Gaza (who happened to be a terrorist)

The New Arab is inconsolable - Israel killed a promising young karate champion!

A Palestinian karateka has been identified as among those killed in Israeli air strikes on Gaza on Friday, with the bombardment continuing into its third day on Sunday.

Youssef Qaddoum, who was a member of the Palestinian Al-Zaytoun Sports Club, was reportedly killed during Israeli strikes on the neighbourhood of Al-Shuja’iyya, east of Gaza city.

The Palestinian Shehab news agency quoted the sports club in a statement saying that "the young martyr Youssef Qaddoum was present at his house with a number of his neighbours before they were caught by the missiles of the Zionist enemy planes".

The club went on to state that the karate player was immediately martyred after the targeting, and that prayers will be sent to comfort the deceased’s family. They also urged all human rights organisations to intervene in the series of daily crimes carried out by Israeli occupation forces against Palestinian athletes.

Qaddoum, who was 24 years old, was described as one of the club’s most distinguished karate players and has participated in many sports tournaments.
How terrible that Israel would target an athlete!

Then again, this morning, Islamic Jihad published a list of its members who were killed - and sure enough, we see "The martyr fighter/ Youssef Salman Muhammad Qaddoum (24 years), Gaza Brigade" listed.

I wonder if The New Arab will update their article with this new information that undercuts their entire thesis that Israel is targeting athletes. Because journalists, especially those from pro-terror outlets, are so ethical.

The five year old girl who was killed on Friday, Alaa Qaddoum, was his relative, and he was clearly the target while she was effectively hoped to be a human shield.
