Israeli police on Monday dismantled a mourning tent set up by the family of the terrorist from east Jerusalem who killed four IDF soldiers in a truck-ramming attack the previous day, the Hebrew news site Walla reported.

The terrorist — 28-year-old Fadi al-Qanbar — was a married father-of-four with no record of security offenses. Early Sunday afternoon, the Jabel Mukaber resident took the truck he drove for a living and deliberately plowed into a gathering of officers’ course cadets on an educational tour at the Armon Hanatziv promenade. Al-Qanbar was shot dead at the scene.

Later on Sunday, police swept into Jabel Mukaber and detained nine people — five of whom were relatives of al-Qanbar — for suspected involvement in the attack.

Palestinians took to the the streets and social media to celebrate the attack. In the Gaza Strip on Sunday, the Hamas and Islamic Jihad terror groups praised Al-Qanbar’s action and organized parades to mark the occasion.

On Monday, concrete barriers were installed at the Armon Hanatziv promenade — a prominent tourist destination offering a panoramic vista of Israel’s capital city — to prevent similar attacks in the future.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Sunday that “all signs” indicated that Al-Qanbar was an ISIS supporter.

    Quote from a WWII veteran overhearing someone say that `You can’t bomb an ideology.”:
    “The hell you can’t, because we did it. These Muslims are no different than the [Imperial] Japanese. The Japs had their suicide bombers too. And we stopped them. What it takes is the resolve and will to use a level of brutality and violence that your generations can’t stomach. And until you can, this shit won’t stop.
    It took us on the beaches with bullets, clearing out caves with flame throwers, and men like LeMay burning down their cities, killing people by the tens of thousands.
    And then it took 2 atom bombs on top of it. Plus we had to bomb the shit out of German cities to get them to quit fighting. But, if that was what it took to win, we were willing to do it. Until you are willing to do the same…well I hope you enjoy this shit, because it ain’t going to stop!”
    Back then, we had leadership, resolve, resources and determination. Today we’re afraid to hurt people’s feelings….and worry about which bathroom to piss in!!!

    So what if the perp was a supporter of Issis? He was a Palestinian. That says it all. Bibi should stop the b/s and admit that the problem is not Isis but the entire Arab population of Isreal.

  • AfriSynergy West

    The occupation of East Jerusalem is illegal and in the whole of the West Bank, in violation of UN Resolution 2334. Collective punishment will only trigger similar attacks, and barriers won’t stop them all.

  • Peter Joffe

    The home of the late terrorist should be dismantled as well and the family jailed for complicity in a crime. Lets us not up the pressure a little, lets up the pressure a lot as family members must have known what was about to happen and even if they did not they celebrated the death of Israelis at the hand of and Islamic madman, so they are complicit and as hate filled as he was.

  • Al Talena

    The Israeli gov’t still has not learned how to respond to a-rab agggression. Too bad the head of internal Israeli response to a-rab terror isn’t an Arab.

  • Here are excerpts from “The British Brutality: British Armed Forces and the Repression of the Arab Revolt in Palestine, 1936 – 39”, by Matthew Hughes:

    British accounts also detail soldiers bayoneting innocent Arabs and Arab fighters in battle being machine gunned en masse by men from the Royal Ulster and West Kent regiments as they came out to surrender near Jenin. ‘At one time the Ulsters and West Kents caught about 60 of them [Arab guerrillas] in a valley and as they walked out with their arms up mowed them down with machine guns. I inspected them afterwards and most of them were boys between 16 and 20 from Syria …. No news of course is given to the newspapers, so what you read in the papers is just enough to allay public uneasiness in England.’

    Up to fifteen men died in Halhul, mostly elderly Arab-Palestinians (the youngest victim was thirty-five, the oldest seventy-five) who died after being left out in the sun for several days in a caged enclosure with insufficient water. Halhul villagers also claim that soldiers shot a local man at a well during the same operation—in fact, it seems that soldiers beat the victim and then left him to drown in the well.

    “Before or after destroying the village [of Al Bassa,], almost certainly the latter, RUR soldiers with some attached Royal Engineers collected approximately fifty men from al-Bassa and blew some of them up in a contrived explosion under a bus. Harry Arrigonie, a British Palestine policeman at al-Bassa at the time, recalled what happened in his memoirs, with the British ‘herding’ about twenty men from al-Bassa ‘onto a bus. Villagers who panicked and tried to escape were shot. The driver of the bus was forced to drive along the road, over a land mine buried by the soldiers. This second mine was much more powerful than the first [i.e., the rebels’ mine] and it completely destroyed the bus, scattering the maimed and mutilated bodies of the men on board everywhere. The villagers were then forced to dig a pit, collect the bodies, and throw them unceremoniously into it.”

    This study was released in 2009. Yet it made no discernible impact. No news articles about the revelations, no calls for public inquiries, no angry British demanding answers, no apologies from British who feel bad that these actions were done in their name.

    The next time any smug British journalist or politician decides to talk about supposed Israeli atrocities against Palestinian Arabs – ask them how it compares with Britain’s record against those very same people.

  • Bartacharta

    Should have dismantled the mourning tent by driving a truck through it….

  • Lauren Goldman

    Terrorists should die at the scene of their crime. Always. Their actions nullify any human/legal consideration.

    This is why there must be a two-state solution; if ‘palestinians’ become Israeli citizens, terrorists will roam freely and invisibly among the population.

  • HaLeviSHmuel

    Whahahaha Never fails.

  • HaLeviSHmuel

    The tent was immediately rebuilt. I have not revisited the subject since.
    The same pretend demolitions apply to every illegal Muslim building that Netanyahu “orders demolished”. The demolition is limited to replaceable panels and blocks while the infrastructure is untouched. The Muslims rebuild that within hours or days.

  • Victoria poupko

    Only demolishing the tent is nothing. All members of Al-Qanbar family must be deported from Jerusalem –to Gaza strip, if not to Jordan. This action had to begin cleansing Israel –Jabel Mukaber as the first place in Israel –from Palestinians (terrorists).

  • cesalex

    Stop anti-Semitic propaganda!!! Do not call these muslim interlopers – “Palestinians” (a 1963 KGB invention). Palestinians are the Jews of IXX-XX Century. Deport the mamzer’s extended family and demolish their houses.

  • Brooklyn Ave.

    They should “Neutralize” aLL of them!!!

  • Daniel

    the entire street deported to Gaza. let’s up the pressure a little.

    • Victoria poupko

      I was so angry that forgot to read the Comments before I put mine. That’s exactly what I suggested.

    • Lauren Goldman

      Most ‘palestinians’ are descendents of Egyptians and Jordanians who moved to Israel for work beginning in 1948, after the re-creation/founding of the State of Israel.

      Anyone who commits a violent act against the State of Israel or its citizens should serve very long prison sentences (preferrably in isolation) and their families deported to their countries of origin.

    • Marco Redwolf

      Q: How would you get them to Gaza ?
      A.: Catapult.. Like in a Roadrunner Cartoon.
