Parents of murderer of 2: “I am blessing my son, on his Martyrdom-death”

Mother of murderer Muhannad Halabi: “I speak while I am blessing my son, on ‎ his ‎Martyrdom-death (Shahada), and I am proud that he died to defend the women of ‎Palestine…”‎
Father of murderer Muhannad Halabi: “He avenged the women carrying out Ribat ‎‎(religious conflict/war over land claimed to be Islamic) at the Al-Aqsa [Mosque]. He ‎avenged them. He avenged them against the impure enemies. He avenged them and ‎made everyone lift his head up high. He made everyone lift his head up high. ‎Muhannad, may he find favor in the eyes of Allah, may he find favor in the eyes of ‎Allah, praise Allah, Master of the World ‎, praise Allah.”

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."‎
