PA daily: Palestinians have been celebrating murder of couple on social media as "heroic"

Headline: “Support of injury to settlers on Facebook”
“Palestinian users of the social networks Facebook and Twitter posted pictures from the scene of the Itamar settlement operation (i.e., terror attack) south of Nablus, the most significant of which is the picture of the killed settler and her husband, alongside expressions of joy over the operation which they described as “heroic.”
[Palestinian] citizens expressed their satisfaction with this event, and some of them wrote that the fact that those who carried out the operation shot at the settler and her husband without killing their children reflects their morality. Furthermore, some users made the connection between the appearance of the killed settler and the one who had recently cursed the Prophet [Muhammad], peace be upon him, at the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] plaza (they claimed it was the same woman. –Ed.), while others rejected this idea.”
