Israeli politicians and leaders from across the political spectrum rushed to unequivocally condemn the murder of 17 year old Mohammed Abu Khdeir. Abu Khdeir was kidnapped Tuesday night in Jerusalem, and his body was found in the Jerusalem forest.

The Media and Arabs were quick to blame rightwing Jews for a “revenge attack”, but there are indications at this point that it may have been an honor killing or related to a clan war.

From Minister Uri Ariel, Jewish Home: (translated)

Uri Ariel @saruriariel The murder Arab boy and burning his body this morning is a despicable act and shocking. I call the police to spare no efforts, to reach the killers fast and bring them to justice

From Nir Barkat, Mayor of Jerusalem:

Nir Barkat ‏@NirBarkat I vigorously condemn barbaric murder of boy in #Jerusalem. I am confident security forces will bring perpetrators to justice.

From Dani Dayan, Yesha Council Foreign Envoy:

Dani Dayan @dandayan More indications that murder of the Shuafat boy is intra-Palestinian criminal affair. It doesn’t matter for the poor boy. Nevertheless

Dani Dayan @dandayan If turns out that we became like them, it is terrible. Just not that.

From Minister Tzipi Livni, HaTnua: (translated)

Tzipi Livni ‏@Tzipi_Livni
Murder of the Arab in Jerusalem. Shocking incident that must be condemned, zero tolerance for it, work to find the killers and bring them to justice.

The Fraenkel family released a statement: (translated)

We do not know the exactly what happened last night in eastern Jerusalem, and the police are investigating. But if it is true a boy was killed for nationalistic reasons, we are talking about a troubling and horrifying act. There is no differentiating between blood and blood, murder is murder, whatever the nationality or age. There’s no justification, no forgiveness, and no redemption for any murder. – Yishai Fraenkel.

  1. What was the echo from the Palestinians when the three boys were kidnapped, and when they were found murdered?

  2. Important to note the difference between the israeli leaders and the arab leaders!This has been done without reserves,even if the murders could not politacal ispireted

  3. Izaac Luger says:

    They had it coming

  4. Are they sure that this is not another family killing like the little girl.who ever did this needs to be punished. It could also be a local pedafile from the little boys tribe

  5. Judith Dowla says:

    That is more like it, otherwise I will start to think you are racist after all.

  6. Judith Dowla says:

    What does it matter what they were thinking, it is what we are thinking and doing that matters the most.

  7. Yuval Cohen says:

    Izaac Luger, who had it coming?

  8. Probably murdered by his own people to try to bring condemnation on Israeli Jews. That’s how they operate.

  9. It is a tragedy for life to end so young. We are going through this ourselves. Have compassion. We are better than that.

  10. Scott Soffen says:

    Animls kill children.

  11. Qui semme la terreur récolte la vengeance…

  12. Sounds like a hamas propaganda set up. Israel is getting too much positive press so the ” Palestinian ” Nazis needed to get the world to hate the Jews again so they came up with a stunt.

  13. Wasn’t this an honor killing? So why blame the Israelis, though it’s the easiest thing to do.

  14. What? Not honking horns, passing out candy, and holding up a new finger salute..

  15. Note to Peres and Abbas, you met for prayers pizza and fine wine in Italy. You and the Pope had more than photo opps. You made promises to seek Peace. This is a valuable and needed time to meet again! Why not just have a Peace Conference with Leaders of both sides as well as others interested in helping find the proper and peaceful solutions to this ASAP? Have Leadership of other Countries that are friendly nations there to moderate and undoubtedly mediate too! I’m sure if another venue is needed Jordan, Austrailia, England, Switzerland, Germany, Canada, and other Countries would invite you with open arms and minds! No I didn’t forget here in the good ol USA but we don’t even trust what’s happening in Washington and with “King” Obama currently which is an embarrassing state of affairs don’t ya think?

  16. Sandra Camhi says:

    All murder and waste of human life is wrong

  17. Reality in plain view 2014. No islam allowed.

  18. Not animals but savages and barbarians

  19. Feraco Ed says:

    Arabs killed this child!

  20. Loren Renee says:

    Nothing is proven or accomplished by targeting children. Their blood is a stain on whomever spills it. Our boys would not want more kids murdered in their behalf. This is not the time for vigilante justice. This is for IDF and police to round up the guilty parties. It is for Knesset to annex or deed back to Israel the family lands of convicted terrorists so they get in their heads that they will only lose by continuing. This removes the temptation for prisoner swap. Their family can be deported to Syria. They may even be welcome there, but they will not be in Israel anymore.

  21. Uzi Kattan says:

    Too bad they didn’t have the same concern for Gilad Eyal and Naftali who were murdered for being Jews. Some leaders. They show their true faces with their condemnation.

  22. Uzi Kattan says:

    Too bad they didn’t have the same concern for Gilad Eyal and Naftali who were murdered for being Jews. Some leaders. They show their true faces with their condemnation.

  23. We must condemn the murder. We are not killers.
