Jewish girl, 13, stabbed to death in West Bank bedroom was U.S. citizen

A 13-year-old Jewish girl who was stabbed to death in her bed by a Palestinian attacker on Thursday was an American citizen, the State Department said.

Hallel Yaffa Ariel was asleep in her home in a West Bank settlement when a 17-year-old assailant broke in to the house and killed her before he was shot by security guards.

“The horrifying murder of a young girl in her bed underscores the bloodlust and inhumanity of the incitement-driven terrorists that we are facing,” Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after an emergency meeting with his defense minister. “The entire nation deeply identifies with the family’s pain and declares to the murderers: you will not break us.”

In Washington, the U.S. State Department condemned “in the strongest terms the outrageous terrorist attack.”

    The patience of the Israeli’s is phenomenal. They would tear the heart out of the Arab world if we’d allow them. I can’t wait for that dog’s chain to break.

    That killing of the girl rests purely and solely on Netanyahu’s hands. He said several months ago that muslimes are welcome into Israel. Well Israel this is what you get for succumbing to filthy islam. It was not radical,and there is no such thing as a moderate or peaceful muslime or anything else, it is islam PLAIN AND SIMPLE. Wake the F$&K up people!!!!!.

    Once all the condemnation is done the fact remains that this girl is dead and that a Palestinian did it. The Palestinians need to accept the fact that they need to act in a civilized manner. They need to stop teaching hate and violence in their mosques. Nothing was gained by this action.

          Do I detect just the slightest hint of antisemitism in your reply? And you claim to be a good Trump conservative?
