Arrest In Itamar Murders

The IDF has arrested two men in their late teens in the murders of the Fogel family in Itamar. Six others are being held as accomplices to the crimes.

Their faces are all over the Israeli press, but I don't want to waste my bandwidth on them. I want to post the faces of their victims. These are Ehud and Ruth Fogel, and three of their children, Elad, 4, Yoav, 11, and Hadas, who was three months old when she was murdered.

The bodies were discovered by their oldest child, 12-year-old Tamar. Two other children in the home survived the attack.

Reading the coverage of what's been learned about the attack, what stands out most clearly is the support network these men had as they went out to commit murder. They received weapons, help, advice, approval, and the silence of their community as justice came looking for them.

And the silence of the rest of the Israel-obsessed world.
