Palestinians to mother of murderer of 2: “Let out cries of joy, O mother of Martyr, ‎your son is a bright candle… I wish my mother was in your place”‎

Headline: “In the video: ‘Martyr Muhannad Halabi’s mother receives him with cries of ‎joy”‎
‎“With patience and faith, Martyr (i.e., terrorist who killed two) Muhannad Halabi’s ‎mother received her son, who was carried on the shoulders of the raging funeral ‎attendees.‎
Halabi’s mother stood waiting for the thousands of youths who attended his funeral, as ‎she recalled Muhannad’s last instruction to her – not to cry - and she did not cry.‎
The participants in the funeral chanted loudly to the Martyr[‘s mother]: ‘Let out cries of ‎joy, O mother of Martyr, your son is a bright candle. Congratulations, mother of the ‎Martyr, I wish my mother was in your place.’‎
The Martyr’s mother answered with cries of joy for her son, whom she hugged for the ‎last time. ‎
On the same day, Palestinian author Ibrahim Nasrallah wrote: ‘He who forces us to let ‎out cries of joy at the funerals of our Martyrs, is the same one who killed them. We let ‎out cries of joy so that we will not, even for one moment, let him feel that he has ‎defeated us, and that if we live, we will cry a lot after our liberation.”‎

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."
