The streets of Hamas filled up with celebration after it was reported that four Israelis were murdered and 13 more were injured in a terror attack in Jerusalem today. The various terrorist organizations in Gaza welcomed the news about the terror attack (see photo).

“Israel is right to reject a so-called “Peace Conference” that is already rigged to condemn Jewish communities in East Jerusalem, the Old City, and the West Bank, as ‘the main obstacle to peace’. It is clear to everyone but outgoing US Secretary of State John Kerry and some European leaders, that it is continuous Palestinian terrorism and the brainwashing of Palestinian children to hate Jews, that is the only reason there is no peace.”

“We urge French President Hollande and Secretary Kerry not to repeat past lectures about peace to Israelis. They won’t be listening. Innocent families will be sitting Shiva, mourning the death of the sons and daughters,” Hier and Cooper concluded.
