AGAIN, be they killed or not, a Palestinian, be he indoctrinated by hate or not, tried to kill Israelis.
Had this ‘civilian turned terrorist’ succeeded, his family would have received a generous monthly stipend in perpetuity. He will be deemed a shaheed, thanks to Mahmoud Abbas, and his family honored.
How can Israel ever make peace with people who live by this barbaric culture?
BTW… Standing alone amongst the world’s leaders, US President Trump has ended all aid to the Palestinian Authority as long as ‘Pay to Slay’ remains a National Priority, with the PA continuing monthly payments to terrorist and/or their families.
First introduced on September 2016, just months after 29 yr-old American graduate student & former U.S. Army Officer Taylor Force was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist in Jaffa, the Obama administration refused to pass the bill.
With a Republican majority on March 23, 2018, Congress passed, & President Trump signed the Taylor Force Act, prohibiting the transfer of U.S. aid to the Palestinians as long has they continue to entice assassins for hire with generous life-long stipends.
