“Our smile tomorrow will be more beautiful, Allah willing,” is the caption Mohammed Hamid Jabareen, one of the Arab youths who launched a murderous attack on Israeli police on the Temple Mount Friday morning, posted on his Facebook page. Below the caption is his picture with his partner in crime.
In less than an hour, the post attracted more than 1,200 comments, and if Facebook does not take it down there’s no doubt this number will increase, a symbol of the way social media celebrate ruthless hatred and bloodshed.
