US condemns demolition of terrorist’s home


Yehuda Guetta, 19-year-old terror victim

Arutz Sheva: The IDF on Wednesday night demolished the home of Muntasser Shalabi, the terrorist who carried out the May attack in which Yehuda Guetta, 19, was murdered.

Two other students were also injured in the shooting, which occurred at the Tapuah Junction. Three days after the attack, Shalbi, 44, was arrested in a building in which he was hiding in the village of Silwad.

“I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.” Genesis 12:3

Shalabi lives in the Arab village of Turmus Aya, near Ramallah. The demolition follows the Supreme Court’s rejection of the family’s petition to leave their home standing despite the murder.

During the demolition, violent disruptions of order erupted, with approximately 200 Palestinian Authority Arabs hurling rocks and firing explosives at the IDF soldiers, who responded using crowd control methods.

Shalabi’s home was slated to be demolished earlier, but the operation was delayed due to Defense Ministry concerns regarding its effects on US-Israel relations. Read More
