Five Jewish settlers killed in their home by Palestinian, Israeli army says

“We suffered a horrific terror attack tonight,” Maj. Gen. Avi Mizrahi, head of Israel’s Central Command, told reporters early Saturday. “An innocent family — a father, a mother and three of their children — were murdered in the middle of the night by despicable terrorists. Rest assured, we are on a hunt after those responsible, and we will find them.”

Wow, that sounds pretty bad. But wait!

Most are members of Gush Emunim, a messianic settler movement which argues that there is a religious imperative for Jews to settle the West Bank.

International law has a different view.

It sees this and other Jewish settlements as illegally built on land occupied by Israel in 1967.

So, this “innocent” family of invaders violating international law was killed by one of the residents of the land they were invading. As much as I’m not for the children being killed, frankly, that’s what happens to your kids when you’re a completely irresponsible parent that brings them along on invasions with you. Nice spin Washington Post.
