      Terrorist’s Family Plans Early Morning Funeral

      The family of Jerusalem terrorist Ala Abu Dheim, who murdered eight young Jewish students in the Merkaz HaRav yeshiva last week, said Monday afternoon that they hope to bury Dheim early on Tuesday morning.  The choice of time should prevent the funeral from becoming a pro-terror rally, they said.

      Police have refused to release Dheim’s body until the family agrees to conditions meant to prevent the funeral from turning into a violent pro-terror march.  Police insist that the family agree to limit the number of mourners present at the funeral and to prohibit media coverage of the event.
