Terrorist’s post a day before his stabbing killing 2 says third Intifada has begun

Text and image from terrorist Muhannad Halabi's private Facebook page, published on Donia Al-Watan (independent Palestinian news agency), and on the Al-Jazeera news website on Oct. 2, 2015:

"According to what I see, the third Intifada has begun.
What is happening to the Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is what is happening to our holy places and the way of our Prophet [Muhammad] and what is happening to the women of Al-Aqsa and our mothers and sisters.
I do not believe that the people will succumb to humiliation.
The people will rise up (literally “make intifada”), it will indeed make intifada."

Note: Muhannad Halabi killed 2 Israelis, Rabbi Nehemiah Lavi and Aharon Bennett, and injured Bennett’s wife, Adele, and their 2-year-old son in a stabbing attack in the Old City of Jerusalem on Oct. 3, 2015. Following the attack, he was shot and killed by Israeli security forces. Prior to his attack, in a post to his private Facebook page, the terrorist referred to recent terror attacks as part of a "third Intifada,” and said that it was a response to Israel’s actions at the Al-Aqsa Mosque and that the Palestinian people would not “succumb to humiliation.” This is a reference to the PA libel that Israel is plotting to take over and destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and to the PA's portrayal of Jews praying on the Temple Mount as "an invasion of the Al-Aqsa Mosque."
