Hamas again indulges its taste for murdering innocent civilians — in this case, the owner of a candy factory. It is astonishing that so many in the West are still so anxious to accord this group the moral high ground, or to think it will be bought off with negotiations and concessions. From Israel National News, with thanks to Kemaste:
It was released for publication Monday evening that an Israeli Jew from the Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev was kidnapped Wednesday and murdered by Arab terrorists.
The body of Sasson Nuriel was discovered Monday morning in the Arab village of Bituniya, west of Ramallah….
Nuriel, 55, owned a candy factory in the Mishor Adumim industrial zone, near Jerusalem. His murderers, it appears, were members of the Hamas terrorist organization.
Nuriel disappeared last Wednesday and his wife reported him missing to the police late that night. Police and Shabak (General Security Services) agents then carried out a search and investigation that led to the discovery of Nuriel’s body Monday morning and the arrest of at least one Hamas terrorist in connection with the murder. His body showed signs of extreme violence.
The Palestinian Authority did nothing to assist Israel in its search for the kidnap-murder victim.
