JNS.org – Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday strongly condemned a video showing a group of far-right extremists celebrating the murder of a Palestinian family in the village of Duma last summer. The video footage, aired on Wednesday by Israel’s Channel 10, was taken at a wedding.

“The shocking pictures that were broadcast this evening show the true face of a group that constitutes a danger to Israeli society and to the security of Israel. We are not prepared to accept people who deny the laws of the state and do not view themselves as subject to them,” Netanyahu said.

“The pictures underscore how important a strong [Shin Bet] is to the security of us all.”

Israelis Get Down and Dirty at First-Ever ‘Mud Day’ Race in Tel Aviv

Around 5,000 people got down and dirty on Friday during Israel’s first-ever “Mud Day” race in Tel Aviv’s Hayarkon Park,...

Police have opened a criminal investigation into incitement to violence based on what is shown in the video.

Several people in the video were dancing while passing around assault rifles while one person held a knife and a molotov cocktail. Another individual was stabbing a photograph of Ali Dawabshe, the 18-month old toddler who was burned alive in the arson attack in Duma.

Israel’s Security Agency (Shin Bet) is investigating the arson attack that left Ali’s mother, Reham, 27 and father, Sa’ad, 31, dead after succumbing to burn wounds.

Amidst the controversy, that Shin Bet interrogators allegedly tortured suspects connected to the arson attack, the Shin Bet on Thursday said those claims are made in an effort to distract from “severe attacks motivated by an extreme anti-Zionist ideology,” from a Jewish extremist group who seeks to overthrow the Israeli government through violence and crown a king.

“This organization continued to carry out attacks after the arson attack in Duma and they saw that attack as something to be emulated,” the Shin Bet said in a statement.

    These fanatics are every bit as dangerous to Israel as ‘palestinian’ terrorists. Their actions are used to bolster those who hate Jews and Israel. Just as Bernie Madoff is always brought up whenever there is a discussion about financial criminality, these terrorists’ actions will be used to justify hatred toward Israel, and by extension, all of us.

    Devarim 32:35 – “Vengeance is Mine, and retribution.”
    Mishle 25:21-22 – “If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat;
    And if he is thirsty, give him water to drink; For you will heap burning coals on his head, And the Lord will reward you.”

    Whether its US Jews or these tit-for-tat Jews, Stockholm syndrome seems to be de rigueur.

    This is ridiculous. These people were dancing at a wedding and not celebrating the death of an Arab child. How low can they stoop with outright lies!
