An innocent 13-year old little girl, an American citizen, was brutally murdered by a Palestinian terrorist …
The mother of a 13-year-old girl murdered in her bedroom in a terror attack Thursday morning tearfully recalled her daughter’s last moments, as politicians and others expressed outrage over the stabbing attack inside a West Bank settlement home.
“Like all adolescents during summer vacation, my daughter was asleep — tranquil, calm — and a terrorist came and murdered her in her bed,” Rina Ariel, the mother of Hallel Yaffa Ariel, told reporters outside Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem where the teenager was taken after sustaining critical injuries in the attack earlier Thursday.
She arrived with multiple stab wounds to her upper body and was pronounced dead shortly after.
Ariel was stabbed to death in her room on Thursday morning when a Palestinian teen, identified as Muhammad Nasser Tarayrah, 17, from Bani Na’im, jumped the fence into the settlement, broke into her house and stabbed her to death, before also stabbing a civilian security guard who arrived at the scene. Tarayrah was shot and killed by other guards. <Source>
While President Obama was quick to offer personal condolences to the family of a black thug lawfully shot and killed by a police officer in the course of his duties, there was no statement from the President of the United States concerning the death of an American citizen at the hands of a Palestinian terrorist. Official notice came from John Kerry’s State Department and placed into the record by that squirrely former Admiral, John Kirby.
Today's Terrorist Attack in the West Bank
We condemn in the strongest possible terms the outrageous terrorist attack this morning in the West Bank where a 13-year-old girl, Hallel Ariel, was stabbed to death in her home. This brutal act of terrorism is simply unconscionable. We extend our deepest condolences to her family. We also understand another individual who was responding to the attack was wounded by the attacker. We extend our hopes for a quick and full recovery.

Donald Trump condemns 'heinous' murder of Israeli girl
Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has condemned the "heinous murder" of a 13-year-old Israeli girl stabbed to death in her sleep by a Palestinian terrorist Thursday.
"I am shocked by the heinous murder of 13 year old Hallel Yaffa Ariel, who was attacked by a Palestinian terrorist while she was sleeping in her bedroom," Trump said in a statement issued Friday. "I extend my deepest condolences to the Ariel family.
"The continuing incitement and preaching of hate by the Palestinian leadership, and the glorification of terror must end immediately. "I call upon the leadership of the Palestinian Authority to condemn this murder and to take concrete steps to end this barbaric behavior." <Source>
What did the Palestinian terrorist’s mother have to say …
Mother of Kiryat Arba terrorist: My son is a hero
The mother of the Palestinian terrorist who killed an Israeli teenage girl as she slept in her bed early this morning tells a Hebron news channel that her son was “a hero” who made her “proud.”
“My son died as a martyr defending Jerusalem and the Al-Aqsa Mosque,” the Palestinian Media Watch organization quotes the mother of Muhammad Tarayrah as saying. “Praise be to Allah, Lord of the Worlds, he [my son] has joined the martyrs before him, and he is not better than them. Allah willing, all of them will follow this path, all the youth of Palestine. Allah be praised.” <Source>
Her son defended nothing, protected nothing, and dies as a worthless piece of excrement, taking the life of an innocent girl in the process. And she is no better. Recalling the words of Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir:
“We can forgive the Arabs for killing our children. We cannot forgive them for forcing us to kill their children.
We will only have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us.”
Israel responds and is condemned …
Meeting after the attack, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman decided to close off the village where the assailant lived and revoke work permits in Israel for members of his village. They also launched the process to demolish his family home.
Sari Bashi, the Israel and Palestine country director for Human Rights Watch, in a statement sent to journalists called the murder a “ghastly crime. The fact that settlements are illegal under international law does not make their inhabitants, the children as well as their parents, subject to lethal attack. “At the same time,” she said, “the killing provides no legal justification for the Israeli government to punish the alleged attacker’s family members. Destroying the home of the attacker’s relatives and canceling their work permits is an unlawful collective punishment, causing suffering for family members who committed no crime.” <Source>
What Sari Bashi does not understand is that this is not a murder to be dealt with by local authorities in a civilian legal system, but an act of terrorism – an act of war – as part of the continuing Islamic war against the duly constituted and internationally recognized Jewish State of Israel. It is only the restraint of the Israeli government that keeps them from justifiably leveling more than just the terrorist’s home. I am sure that Hamas will now award his mother a pension and provide for her care as they seem to do for other family members of terrorists.
Bottom line …
I am sure, as the night follows the day, that someone in the United Nations will condemn the State of Israel for strengthening their borders and seeking retaliation against this abomination. Of course, this will mean little or nothing to John Kerry as he pursues the Nobel Peace Prize for solving a religious war that began centuries ago and threatens to spread terrorism to every corner of the Earth. I have no doubt that President Obama will continue to disparage America and her allies in his quest to become the next Secretary General of the United Nations where his pro-Muslim, anti-Jew proclivities will stand him in good stead.
We are so screwed up as a nation when we sit idly by and condemn millions to death and suffering with our political ineptitude and progressive games. The Muslim terrorists only understand one thing: strength and the will to use it. It is time for rethinking the clash between a toxic religion and the rest of the tolerant civilization.
