In man-on-the-street interviews conducted by Israel’s Channel 2 News, Israeli-Arab and Palestinian youth expressed support for the recent terror wave and resulting murder of Jews.

In one such interview, a smiling Israeli-Arab teenager said he “becomes happy” when he hears of a stabbing attack against Israelis.

When pressed by the reporter, who asks him in Arabic: “It makes you happy? It puts you in a good mood?,” the boy responds in the affirmative.

When asked why he took pleasure in the violence, the grinning youth says, “Because someone from my people, from Palestine, went and stabbed a Jew. It means we taught the Jews a lesson.”

When the reporter reveals that he himself is Jewish, the boy is shocked. “You’re a Jew?” he says in disbelief, while beginning to walk away.

Similar interviews were conducted by Walla! News carried out its own interview with Arab youths from Jabel Mukaber, an east Jerusalem neighborhood, which resulted in equally disturbing responses.

A group of four boys, no older than 12 years old, called the terrorists who carried out the multiple attacks in Jerusalem on Tuesday — leading to the death of three Israeli Jews — “heroes.”

Their actions were justified, said the boys, because, “The Jews conquered our homeland,” and therefore, “the Arabs must kill them.”
