ADL Shocked at Brutal Murder of Israeli Couple by Palestinian Terrorists

Jerusalem, October 1, 2015 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today expressed shock and outrage at the brutal murder of an Israeli couple at the hands of Palestinian terrorists.   Naama and Eitam Henkin were shot by Palestinian terrorists while driving with their four young children in the West Bank.  While no organization has yet taken responsibility, Hamas praised the attack, and there are reports of postings on social media by Palestinians celebrating the murders.

Carole Nuriel, Director of ADL’s Jerusalem office said:  “There are no words to sufficiently express our outrage, horror and sorrow over this heinous attack in which children witnessed the brutal murder of their parents.  World leaders who are gathered at the United Nations to discuss issues of peace and security should publicly condemn this attack and the incitement against Israel by the Palestinian Authority, which has created a fertile ground for the recent spate of violence in the West Bank and in Jerusalem.

The Anti-Defamation League was founded in 1913 to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all. Today it is the world’s leading organization combating anti-Semitism, exposing hate groups, training law enforcement on hate crimes, developing anti-bias education programs for students, countering cyber-hate and relentlessly pursuing equal rights for all.
