Burning Babies and Stabbing Gays in Messianic Israel by Dan Sanchez -- Antiwar.com

Burning Babies and Stabbing Gays in Messianic Israel by Dan Sanchez -- Antiwar.comTerror struck twice in Israel this Thursday.

First, an ultra-Orthodox zealot went on a slashing rampage at the Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade, stabbing six, and fatally wounding a 16-year-old girl.

Then, extremist Jewish settlers firebombed the house of a Palestinian Arab family in the West Bank village of Duma, critically wounding three, and burning alive an 18-month-old toddler alive.

On a wall, the arsonists spray painted a Star of David and the Hebrew word for “revenge.” This marks the crime as a “price tag” attack. This is the term used by settlers for attacks meant to, “exact a price… for any action taken against their settlement enterprise,” as Uri Friedman put it in The Atlantic.
