sizcache="0">The Rabbi of Itamar, Rav Natan Chai, called upon the IDF to arrest the mother and aunt of the murderer following their praise for the atrocity.

"A situation in which Israel allows the murderer to be praised encourages the next murderer," he said. "A state cannot allow incitement to murder its citizens. The Shin Bet and IDF must act and arrest the people who praise the murders."

The teenage terrorist and his partner in the massacre, another young member of the Awad clan, are members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). They were assisted by at least six others, four of them from their family.

The massacre of the Fogels took place at night on Friday night (Sabbath), March 11. The terrorists climbed over the fence surrounding Itamar, a Samaria community, and entered the Fogel family's home. They stabbed to death Rabbi Ehud (Udi) Fogel, his wife Ruth, 11-year-old Yoav, four-year-old Elad and three-month-old Hadas.

Investigators said they were shocked by the impassionate confessions and description of the murders by the teenagers, one of whom said he has been prepared to become a "martyr."

It is widely accepted that incitement such as this propels murderers like the Awads to perpetrate their acts. Israel has said it would act against the incitement but has not taken any real steps in that direction. In fact, there were reports that Israel itself has lobbied the US for funding to PA institutions that incite against the Jewish state.

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.
