Israeli Fogel Family Massacre Still Rarely Mentioned in Media

I am still shocked that  five members of  an  Israeli family were massacred by a memeber of Islam. A terrible tragedy that didn’t have to happen. I very upset that the Western media has barely mentioned this case or mentioned the celebrations in Palestine after the event. More people need to read or reread about this crime. SHAW

Fogel Massacre Proves Islam is NOT A Religion of Peace

By Gil Troy 3.21.11  

The frenzied slaughter in their beds of five members of the Fogel family in the name of Allah, by a Palestinian ‘Mujahid’ (as presumably, he, has been dubbed by the Palestinian media) – Ruth, 34, Rabbi Udi, 36, Yoav, 11, Elad, 4 and baby Hadas, three months – has elicited four fairly predictable responses:

     Shock and public outrage in Israel

  • Celebrations in ‘Palestine’, with sweets being given out in the streets and praise heaped on the killer by official media 
  • Mealy mouthed platitudes from the useless ‘Quartet’ 
  • Censorship and the ‘Isolated Incident™ treatment from Western mainstream media’

    Initial reports suggest that around 22:20 and 22:30 on Friday, the perpetrator/s entered the house through the living room picture window but did not notice the 6-year-old boy sleeping on the couch.

    They continued on to the bedroom where they slashed the throats of the Father, Udi and baby daughter Hadas, who were sleeping there. The children’s Mother, Ruth, came out of the bathroom and was stabbed by the door. Crime scene evidence indicates that she resisted.

    They then slashed the throat of Yoav who was reading in bed. They did not notice the 2-year old asleep in his bed, but killed Elad with two stabs to his heart. After that, they locked the door, exited through the window and escaped.

    INN relates the rest of the initial findings:

    The 12-year-old daughter returned home at 00:30 and found the door locked. She asked a neighbor, Rabbi Yaakov Cohen, of the Itamar Yeshiva, to help her. He brought a weapon with him once he noticed tracks and mud near the house. The two woke up the 6-year old sleeping in the living room by calling through the window and when he opened the door, the Rabbi returned to his home.

    When she entered the bedrooms, the young daughter saw the horrific bloodsoaked scene and ran out of the house screaming. The neighbor ran back and fired several shots in the air to alert security personnel. Within a short time, large police and IDF forces arrived and began intensive searches to see if the terrorists were still in the community. At 03:30 a.m., military trackers discovered footprints leading to the Arab village of Avrata.

    “Sky Riders” Israeli UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles), continued the search Saturday morning.

    Shocking and truly upsetting as this story is, the biggest story is not what happened on Friday night in Itamar.

    It is what has (or, more accurately, has not) happened since, hundreds and thousands of miles away in the news-gathering rooms of the Western media.

    And in the behaviour of the Palestinians, who have celebrated this debauched and heartless attack in the streets.

    The former are hard at work ensuring that only a few outside Israel will hear of the latter.

    Because of this, we have decided to link to the crime scene images of this mass murder, in order to – in our own small way – help break the self-censorship barrier that will inevitably be imposed by the media outside of Israel. The surviving members of the Fogel Family have courageously given their express permission for these gruesome pictures to be shown to the world.

    If you can bear to see these images – ask yourself this. Is this the work of a religion that claims to be peaceful?

    Remember that ALL Israel’s Islamic neighbours work for her destruction and most ban Jews from entering their territories. And remember too, that ‘Mein Kampf‘ is still a perennial bestseller in most Muslim countries.

    However, we DO believe that they need to be shown to the world – and would defy anyone who can bear to see them, to come back here and still maintain that Islam is a force for peace in the world.

    Because it most assuredly isn’t. The Fogel Massacre proves Islam is NOT a religion of peace

    Our thoughts (and yours we hope, too) are with two-year-old Tamar, eight-year-old Ro’ie and two-year-old Shai – the surviving Fogel chidren, who are currently being cared for by their grandfather, Chaim Fogel.
