Twice this week, Palestinian Authority official television broadcast warm greetings from the mother of Hakem Awad, who butchered five members of one family, to her son. The mother, as well as an aunt of Awad, spoke by telephone on "For You," a show that specializes in messages to terror prisoners, Palestinian Media Watch reported.
Hakem Awad's mother explained that she could not visit her son "for security reasons," and the show's hostess replied – "go ahead, my sister, we can transmit your voice."
The mother greeted her "dear son" and specified that he was serving five life sentences for the "Itamar operation" – a home invasion in last year in which Hakem Awad and a cousin murdered a father, mother and three children aged 11, 4 and two months.
Hakem Awad's aunt also went on air and greeted "the hero, the legend," Hakem Awad. The hostess joined the greetings and said: "We also say hello to them."
Other members of the Awad family mentioned by the Awad women assisted in the murders and in covering up evidence.
Mocking the Fogel Murders

How dare Israel keep the Fogel family murderers alive until they die of old age.
Rafah residents in Gaza handed out candy and danced when the news was announced. In the middle of the night of March 11th, 2011, 2 Arab brothers from the West Bank village of Awarta, entered an Israeli residence and proceeded to slit the throat of a 3 month old infant--Hadas Fogel, after which they viciously stabbed to death her 3 year old and 11 year old brothers--Elad and Yoav--who were all sleeping at the time.
The two killers immediately ran to the parents bedroom, where their knives continuously tore apart the bodies of both parents--Ehud and Ruth Fogel, who both hopelessly tried to fight back. The men responded by shooting Ruth in the head, while her husband lay on the floor, bleeding to death.
During their interrogation, the 2 West Bank brothers, Hakim and Amjad Awad proudly admitted to the murders in graphic detail, and even added that "had they known there were 2 other children asleep in the home, they would have stabbed them as well."
The Awad's even enjoyed telling their story and emphasized that they would get great pleasure in doing it all over again. Although Israeli politicians and justices were not happy about the recent verdict, they did not act much better than the sick Gaza residents.
Israel, home of the Jewish people and the Bible, has tossed that incredible moral guide into the dustbin of history. The secular, socialist, anti-religious Founders of the Jewish state have adopted their own self-made morality, punishing these 2 subhuman Arab monsters with an immediate free pass to play soccer, lift weights, get 3 Halal meals a day, free health care, cable tv, an exercise facility and some of the latest books and magazines from the prison library.
While the brothers are entertaining themselves to their heart's content, although within an Israeli prison, the 3 surviving Fogel children will be living with these horrible memories for the rest of their lives. So will Israeli society and all decent people worldwide. Prison isn't great...hey, but it sure beats the death penalty.
The joke is that Hakim Awad's actual sentence was "5 life sentences." Now is that not severe, deserved punishment by a wise (sic) Israeli justice system? What a slap in the face for that 3 month old baby and her 2 brothers. Why didn't the brilliant justices of Israel give them 100 life sentences? What does that even mean--5 life sentences? It pokes fun at the punishment because that sentence can never be carried out, and makes absolutely no sense.
Israel's justice system and punishment is modeled after the morally bankrupt European system which forbids capital punishment. It is the American system that is based on true Torah principles. While Israeli justices and government officials ignore the Torah, America still holds Jewish values very dear.
The ONLY law that is represented in all 5 books of Moses (the Torah) is capital punishment for murder. Texas and most other states have it right.
It is the liberal/leftist progressives with their obsession to keep evil people alive, who are hurting society. Their 4 basic arguments are all totally flawed--
1) an innocent person may get executed,
2) killing the murderer will not bring back the dead person,
3) capital punishment is state murder,
4) minorities are disproportionately executed.
These are all straw man arguments and can easily be dismissed.
How dare Israel keep the Fogel family murderers alive until they die of old age. However, this is what happens when secular Jewish fools ignore God's wishes because they think those antiquated rules were arbitrarily made up by some primitive Jewish committee 3500 years ago.
Israel has become morally akin to Europe and Scandinavia, where Norway's morality will, in all likelihood, be giving a maximum of 21 years punishment to Anders Breivik for recently murdering 69 people--which works out to approximately 2 1/2 months per person murdered. So a life in Norway is worth 2 1/2 months!
If the death penalty is illegal in Israel, how come Adolf Eichmann was executed, even though he never personally murdered anyone? He was the numbers guy during The Holocaust. Were Jews in 1939 any more valuable than the Fogel family? If you say it is because it is 6 million versus 5 deaths you are entirely wrong because according to Judaism, every life is an entire world.
6 million worlds were ended during The Holocaust and 5 worlds were ended on March 11th, 2011--both equally deserving the death penalty for what they did to totally innocent, decent people.
Therefore, on this issue, it is America who has now become "A Light Unto The Nations," while Israel is actually no better than the rest of the world.
