Payback: Israel Destroys Home of Palestinian Terrorist Who Killed US Veteran

The Israeli military has demolished the home of the Palestinian terrorist who fatally stabbed American tourist and former U.S. Army officer Taylor Force in a terror attack back in March. Ten others were also wounded in the attack.

The troops entered the West Bank village of Hajjah early on Tuesday to knock down the residence of Bashar Masalha. […]

Force was a Vanderbilt University graduate student visiting Israel during a school trip. He previously graduated from West Point and served tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan. Masalha was killed by police after the attack. The assault was part of a months-long wave of violence.

Israel considers housing demolitions to be a way to deter future attacks.

Meanwhile, in the U.S., Katie pointed out that the State Department couldn’t even publicly acknowledge that a Palestinian was responsible for the terror attack. Their statement only “condemned in the strongest possible terms” the “outrageous terrorist attack.”
