Jerusalem will launch efforts to explain how Palestinian incitement against Israel eventually led to the shocking terror attack in which five members of the Fogel family from the settlement of Itamar – Rabbi Udi Fogel (36), his wife Ruth (35) and three of their children – Yoav (11), Elad (4) and Hadas (3 months) were brutally murdered

Five Israelis murdered by Palestinians at Itamar were Gaza evacuees
DEBKAfile Special Report March 12, 2011, 9:53 AM (GMT+02:00)
The five members of the Israeli family murdered at Itamar on the West Bank, Friday night, March 11, have been identified as Udi Vogel, 38, the father; his wife Ruth Vogel, 35, their sons Yoav, 11 and Elad, 3 and their four-month old daughter Hadas. The three children who survived are Roi, 8, Yishai, 2 and their sister Tamar, aged 12, who found the victims when she arrived home later that night.
The family moved to Itamar after Jewish communities were forcibly evicted from the Gaza Strip in 2007 as part of the Sharon government’s disengagement plan.
The terrorists had broken through the fence guarding the sleeping settlement and entered the Vogel home through an open window without raising an alarm.
Military and police units fanned out to hunt the perpetrators and set up checkpoints. Hamas websites hailed the murder as a “heroic operation,” without taking responsibility.

Massacre of Jewish Babies, Children in Israel Lacks Condemnation As Netanyahu Demands UN Action
By Joel Leyden
Israel News Agency
March 12, 2011 ….. Part of the following was communicated by the Israel Government Press Office to the Israel News Agency.
As many in Israel shed a tear, they shake their heads and question: “how can an animal stab a 4-month-old baby to death”?
Most of the world’s nations remain quiet, few condemnations have come forth as Islamic Gaza residents from the southern city of Rafah have poured out onto the streets to celebrate the terror attack in West Bank town of Itamar, in which five family members were murdered in their sleep. These “democratic” and “peace loving” nations are quick to grab headlines in criticizing the natural growth of cities and towns in the West Bank – Judea and Samaria – but when it comes to the innocent blood of Jewish children, they are nowhere to be seen.
Arab oil over democracy and basic human rights?
Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated this evening: “I would like to express my deep outrage, outrage which is certainly felt by every Israeli over the murder of a young family – father, mother, eleven-year-old boy, four-year-old-boy and four-month-old girl.”
“Three orphaned children have been left in this family. One of the girls saw her parents and siblings stabbed to death. The family was brutally murdered in their sleep on the Sabbath. We embrace and support the orphans and the other members of the family. We embrace and support our brothers who reside in Judea and Samaria. Do not be disheartened. I know that this is a difficult time for us, but the entire nation is with you. Since the disaster, this awful murder, became known I have held discussions with Defense Minister Ehud Barak, Israel Defense Forces Chief-of-Staff, Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz, ISA Director Yuval Diskin and other senior security officials. I instructed them to make every effort to find the murderers and not to rest until they have been found and brought to justice.”
Netanyahu added: “I expect the international community to sharply and unequivocally condemn this murder, the murder of children. I have noticed that several countries that always hasten to the UN Security Council in order to condemn Israel, the state of the Jews, for planning a house in some locality, or for laying some tiles somewhere have been dilatory in sharply condemning the murder of Jewish infants. I expect them to issue such condemnations immediately, without balances, without understandings, without justifications. There is no justification and there can be neither excuse nor forgiveness for the murder of children. I expect a similar condemnation, and I demand a similar condemnation, from the Palestinian Authority. I am disappointed by the weak and mumbled statements. This is not how one condemns terrorism. This is not how one fights terrorism. See how Israeli prime ministers, myself among them, have reacted in similar situations, but there has never been anything like this, in which terrorists entered a home and cut children’s throats.”
“This requires sharp and unequivocal condemnation. This requires something else. This requires a halt to the incitement. I demand that the Palestinian Authority stop the incitement that is conducted on a daily basis in their schools, mosques and the media under their control. The time has come to stop this double-talk in which the Palestinian Authority outwardly talks peace, and allows – and sometimes leads – incitement at home. The time has come to stop the incitement and begin educating their people for peace.”
Israel’s Prime Minister concluded: “Despite all the awful pain, I call upon all Israelis to act responsibly, with restraint, and not to take the law into their own hands. When one takes the law into his own hands, there is no law. The IDF and the security forces will carry out their responsibilities; only they. We will not allow terrorism to determine the settlement map. The settlement map will be determined by Government policy, which is in accordance with our national interests, with security first and foremost. Terrorism will not determine the settlement map. We will determine it.”
Udi Fogel, 36, his wife Ruth, 35, and their children Yoav, 11, Elad, 4 and Hadas, 3 months were all stabbed to death.
The funeral for the five members of the Fogel family, murdered in a terror attack in the West Bank town of Itamar on Friday night is scheduled to take place in Jerusalem on Sunday.

Itamar massacre: Fogel family butchrered while sleeping
Writing in Cold Blood About Itamar
Claire Berlinski, Ed.
One very quick point I’ll make is that this was clearly not a family above all of “settlers”–some alien species that exists primarily as a political bargaining point–but of human beings. In the home next door to the one that was invaded, kids’ clothing was hanging on the line next to a child’s bicycle. You simply cannot look at that and think, “This story is above all about land and politics.” This story is above all about murder. They were children and they were murdered. Two more children were orphaned. The children were targeted deliberately. This was a premeditated murder–not a crime of passion or self-defense–and it was a psychotically savage crime.
Anyone who in any way tries to rationalize or minimize this or to suggest that this is a fitting punishment for anything needs to go out and look at a three-month-old baby and ask himself what it would take to climb over a fence, climb in a window, and cut off that child’s head. If that act seems an “understandable” reaction to a political grievance to him, I don’t think we can have much of a conversation.

IDF: 2 Palestinians arrested in Fogel family massacre
By YAAKOV LAPPIN
Palestinian youths from Awarta “saw children sleeping in Fogel home,” snuck in and stabbed them to death; suspects affiliated with PFLP.
The two Fogel family killers apprehended at neighboring Awarta village DEBKAfile Special Report April 17, 2011, 12:56 PM (GMT+02:00)
Police have arrested Hakim Mazen Niad Awad, 17, and Amjad Mahmoud Fawzi, 18, in the West Bank village of Awarta on suspicion of murdering in their beds five members of the Fogel family in neighboring Itamar on March 11. They confessed they were motivated by an ambition to kill Jews as Palestinian nationalists and die as martyrs. They expressed no remorse.
After climbing the Itamar perimeter fence, the pair stole an M16 automatic rifle from an empty house, broke into the Fogel home and knifed two children Yoav and Elad. Their parents Udi and Ruthie Fogel woke up to find the killers in their bedroom and put up a fight. They too were stabbed to death.
When one of the two murderers returned to the house to look for more weapons, he killed three-month old Hadas, stole another M16 and left. He said had he known there were two more children sleeping in the house, he would have butchered them too. Their 12-year old sister found the five bodies when she returned home that night.
The two killers, Awad still at high shcool and Fawzi a student, handed the stolen rifles over to Palestinian accomplices in the Ramallah sector who later helped them destroy the evidence of their crime. Six were rounded up.
Three young Israeli Arabs from Nazareth were indicted before the district court Sunday for conspiring to carry out acts of terrorism. They established a new group called “Pledging Death to Zionists” and planned to make their own pipe bomb and gun for attacking Israeli soldiers, policemen and civilians.
Fogel Family Murderers Arrested
Palestinian Teens Don’t Regret Murdering Children
3:50 AM on Friday, April 29, 2011- Nisan 25, 5771
Two teenage Palestinians from the village of Awarta near Itamar have been arrested for the murder of five members of the Fogel family on March 11, in a murder that shocked even many Palestinians.
Palestinian students Amjad Awad, 19, and Hakim Awad 18 (not related to each other) both confessed to the brutal stabbings of Ehud and Ruth Fogel, along with three of their children, Yoav, 11, Elad, 4, and Hadas, 3 months old (who was decapitated by some accounts.)
Both Awads were active in the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and reconstructed the crime for Israeli Shin Bet investigators.
According to Ha’aretz, the two acted independently of any terrorist oorganization and decided they would carry out the murder on the Friday afternoon before it took place. The two left Awarta, masked, at 9 p.m. carrying an umbrella, several knives and wire cutting shears.
It took them about 10 minutes to cut the fence to the settlement, and once inside they broke into an empty home and stole an M-16 rifle, a weapons cartridge, a vest and a helmet.
Outside the Fogel family home, they noticed Yoav and Elad, aged 11 and 4, through the window. They then entered the home and stabbed the two boys. They next entered the room of Ehud and Ruth, the parents, who struggled but were overcome by their attackers who shot and stabbed them. The suspects immeidately fled out of fear that the shots had been heard.
After a few minutes, the two realized that the gunshots had not been heard. Amjad Awad re-entered the home in order to steal another M-16, when he noticed the three-month-old baby and slaughtered her as well. It is unclear whether they noticed sons Roi, 8, and Yishai, 2, but in any case their lives were spared.
The murderers returned to their village of Awarta where they told Hakim’s uncle, PFLP militant Salah E-Sin Awad, what they had done. Salah helped them hide the stolen weapons and knives as well as burn their bloody clothes.
Their arrest was facilitated by DNA evidence left behind due to the struggle with the parents.
According to the Shin Bet, Hakim and Amjad “described what they did with self-control and did not express regret over their actions at any stage of the investigation.” They did not distinguish between the murder of adults and children but simply viewed their attack as an act against Jewish Israelis.
Amjad Mahmad Uwad, who worked as a laborer in Israel, said that he came to Itamar to “die a martyr’s death.”
The other suspect, Hakim Mazen Uwad, is a high school student. He has previously run afoul of the law for stabbing other youths in his village over personal matters. His father Maazan is also a member of the PFLP. In the late 1990′s he served five years in a Palestinian Authority prison for murdering his niece and the burning of her body.
Awad’s uncle, Jibril Awad, was involved in the June 2002 terrorist attack in Itamar, in which Rachel Shabo (40) and three of her children (Avishai – 5, Zvika – 13 and Neria – 16), and their neighbor Yosef Twito (31), were murdered.
