Israeli television aired video showing Jews at a wedding celebrating the murder of a Palestinian family — including an 18-month-old baby — in a West Bank terrorist firebombing
The video features friends of the suspected assailants in the July 2015 attack on a home in the Palestinian village of Duma. Three members of the Dawabshe family — Ali, 18 months, and his parents, Saad and Riham — were killed. Ahmed Dawabshe, now 5, the only surviving member of the immediate family, is still undergoing treatment in an Israeli hospital. In the video, party-goers stab a photo of the Dawabshe family and wave knives, rifles, pistols and Molotov cocktails. The crowd chants the words to a song that includes a verse from Judges 16:28, in which Samson says, “Let me with one blow get revenge on the Philistines for my two eyes.” However, the crowd substitutes “Palestinians” for Philistines.
