Melanie Phillips adds:
And of course, let’s not forget the EU which has funded the PA -- and therefore its genocidal incitement against Jews and Israelis -- to the tune of millions of euros. But the promotion of this Nazi-style Jew-hatred and incitement through indoctrination in permanent genocidal warfare by the direct heirs of the Nazis’ Arab front – the actual reason for the Middle East conflict -- is the one thing that is ignored by the Obama administration, the EU and the British government, all of whom blame Israel instead for preventing a solution to that conflict.She could have included Obama with the Europeans.
What price now those British and European ‘liberals’ as they weep their crocodile tears over Libya and beat their chests over democracy and human rights, while actively endorsing and promoting the Arab neo-Nazi demonisation and dehumanisation of Israelis -- which results in the slaughter of a family which they then proceed to downplay or ignore?
Be proud of the people you're supporting President Obama. You're supporting people who celebrate the cold-blooded murder of a 4-year old and a 3-month old.

On Friday night at 10:30 pm the terrorists entered the house through the living room picture window, did not notice the 6-year-old boy sleeping on the couch and continued on to the bedroom where they slashed the throats of the father and newborn baby who were sleeping there. The mother came out of the bathroom and was stabbed on its threshold. The evidence shows that she tried to fight the terrorists. They then slashed the throat of the 11-year old-son who was reading in bed. They did not notice the 2-year old asleep in his bed, but murdered the 3-year old with two stabs to his heart. After that, they locked the door, exited through the window and escaped. Exactly two hours after the infiltration, there was another warning signal from the same spot on the fence, as the terrorists left the way they had come. Once again, the patrol did not identify the source of the signal as infiltration.
The 12-year-old daughter returned home at 00:30 and found the door locked. She asked a neighbor, Rabbi Yaakov Cohen, of the Itamar Yeshiva, to help her. He brought a weapon with him once he noticed tracks and mud near the house. The two woke up the 6-year old sleeping in the living room by calling through the window and when he opened the door, the Rabbi returned to his home. When she entered the bedrooms, the young daughter saw the horrific bloodsoaked scene and ran out of the house screaming. The neighbor ran back and fired several shots in the air to alert security personnel. Within a short time, large police and IDF forces arrived and began intensive searches to see if the terrorists were still in the community. At 03:30 a.m., military trackers discovered footprints leading to the Arab village of Avrata.
With hopes for better days,
