Israeli President Reuven Rivlin is facing a barrage of hateful comments, including death threats, from Israeli citizens after he condemned the burning to death of a Palestinian baby by Jewish-Israeli settlers.
In the early hours of Friday, July 31, Jewish-Israelis firebombed a Palestinian home in the West Bank town of Duma, just south of Nablus. 18-month-old Ali Dawabshe was burned alive in his own cot. His mother, father and brother remain in critical condition. The killers spray-painted a Star of David on the charred walls of the house, and added the word “Revenge.”
This heinous act of violence come just a year after Jewish-Israeli settlers kidnapped Palestinian teen Mohammed Abu Khdeir, drove him to a Jerusalem forest, beat him, poured gasoline down his throat, and burned him alive from the inside out.
