Israeli Ynet News obtained a video showing fundamentalist Jewish
settlers celebrating the memory of terrorist Dr. Baroch Goldstein, and
praising his crime that targeted Muslim worshipers at the Ibrahimi
mosque in Hebron in February 25, 1994, killing 46 worshipers and

The setters were dancing and singing a special song
meant to praise Goldstein and the way he opened fire at the worshipers
killing and wounding dozens of them.
The “special celebration” was conducted at a Palestinian home that
became inhabited by fundamentalist Jewish settlers through a court order
in Sheikh Jarrah, East Jerusalem.
The Ynet News reported that the festivities of the settlers are similar
to those held by fundamentalist settlers in the southern West Bank city
of Hebron, where the massacre took place.
The video that was obtained by Ynet was filmed on Monday; it shows the
settlers and their children, dancing and singing to praise Goldstein.
“Dr. Goldstein, Dr. Goldstein, we all love you, Dr. Goldstein there is
nobody like you in the world,” the settlers sang, “he aimed at the heads
of the terrorists, squeezed the trigger, and shot and shot….”
Assaf Sharon, a leftist leader of a campaign against the illegal
settlers in Sheikh Jarrah, told the Ynet news that the fundamentalist
settlers are allowed to celebrate and to hold offensive activities while
the Palestinians, the original residents of the neighborhood, cannot say
a single word and cannot do anything.”
Sharon added that the settlers were playing loud music and celebrating
the massacre of Goldstein.
The Ynet tried to interview some of the settlers to ask them about their
songs praising Goldstein but they elected not to respond.
It is worth mentioning that Israeli leftists are planning a protest this
Saturday against the settlers support for the crime of Goldstein and
their provocative and public display of violence.
Baroch Goldstein is an American Jew, who lived in the illegal settlement
of Keryat Arba’, in the center of Hebron city. He was a member of the
terrorist Kach movement.
