Major rioting in Jerusalem this morning, pipe bombs fired at light rail train
The first fact to state is that a terrible tragedy and crime has occurred: A 16 year old Arab boy was snatched outside a supermarket in the eastern portion of Jerusalem and his charred body was found by police, who had launched a massive manhunt for him, an hour later in the woods outside of Jerusalem. Police are looking into two possibilities and I hope to G-d it is not the first, and I simply can’t imagine that is because Jewish-Israeli terrorists are few and very far between (we have had a couple). The first possibility that police are examining is that it was a revenge attack for the murder of our three boys. The second possibility they are looking at is that it is intra-Palestinian, either criminal in nature or an honor killing by family members (there are unconfirmed rumors that the child is gay).
In the wake of this, however, Jerusalem is exploding with rioting. Arab protesters have been stoning police forces, burning tires, smashing out windows, chanting ‘we will sacrifice our lives for the Shahids’ (martyrs) and firing pipe bombs at the light rail system. The light rail has been suspended and people are being told to take buses that are being routed to try to avoid attacks by rioters.
Whoever is responsible for this, Arab or Jew, is a horrific child murderer and we need the death penalty and those responsible should be executed. Updates as they come.
