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."
