Hundreds of terror-sympathizers attend funeral of Muslim terrorist in northern Israel
The body of the Muslim terrorist who attempted to stab an Israeli Police officer and was shot and eliminated in the Old City of Jerusalem on Friday was released on Monday night.
Israeli authorities relinquished the carcass after police required the terrorist’s family to guarantee a payment of about 50,000 NIS if more than 50 people attended his funeral.
The family violated their conditions after hundreds of terror-sympathizers gathered in the terror nest of Umm El-Fahm in northern Israel for his funeral overnight.
During the funeral, the crowd chanted the famous terror slogan “in spirit and blood, we’ll redeem the martyr” while waving PLO terror group flags.
“The conditions set by the police were violated last night,” a police spokesperson said.
“Many hundreds of participants were seen at the funeral, in violation of the order, which delineated the route and times of the funeral, and the number of participants.”
“Due to the failure to observe the conditions f the agreement, the police will open an investigation into the suspected failure to adhere to police orders.”
The terror attack unfolded on Friday when the 31-year-old Muslim terrorist emerged from an area near the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City and started walking toward a team of policemen stationed in the area.
He then tried to stab one of them with a knife he had in his possession. A confrontation ensued, during which the terrorist was shot and eliminated.
The family later claimed that he suffered from mental distress—codename for Jihad.
Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman wrote on his Twitter account:
“Are you still asking yourself why Umm El-Fahm should be part of Palestine and not Israel? The sights from last night of many hundreds of people taking part in the funeral of the terrorist from their city with Palestinian flags, and cries of ‘in spirit and blood, we’ll redeem the martyr,’ will finally answer the question.”
“The plan that I published many years ago to exchange territories and populations is more relevant than ever,” Liberman wrote.
