Watch: Hamas pay-to-slay money confiscated from Muslim terrorist’s family in Jerusalem
Police have confiscated 43,000 shekels ($11,800) from the home of the family of the Muslim terrorist who committed the massacre in the Mercaz Harav Yeshiva in Jerusalem in 2008.
The family obtained the funds from supporters of terrorism on behalf of Hamas.
On 6 March 2008, 26-year-old Muslim terrorist Alaa Abu Dhein infiltrated the Mercaz Harav yeshiva (rabbinical seminary), located in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood near the entrance to Jerusalem, and opened fire on a crowded library and study hall, murdering eight people and wounding 11 others.
Captain David Shapira, a graduate of the yeshiva and an officer in the IDF who lived nearby, arrived at the scene with his M-16 rifle, while Yitzhak Dadon, a yeshiva student who had a gun, positioned himself on the roof of a nearby building. Sixteen minutes after the shooting began, the Muslim terrorist emerged from the library, and Dadon and Shapira opened fire, eliminating him.
The terror attack was praised by Hamas and, according to a subsequent poll, was supported by 84 percent of the Arab population.
Police said that this activity is a direct continuation of the activity carried out on a variety of levels by security forces against the support of terrorist organizations for the families of terrorists.
Last year police confiscated through administrative orders a total of about 300,000 shekels ($82,250), vehicles and jewelry from the homes of more than 7 Families who received support and assistance from terrorist organizations.”
“Israel Police will not allow monetary support of a terror organization for the families of terrorists who committed severe and murderous attacks. The involvement of Jerusalem residents in activity funded by Hamas is a serious offense and constitutes an attempt by the terrorist organization to gain a foothold inside Jerusalem,” police said.
