The brother of terror victim Rabbi Eitam Henkin wrote a harshly worded letter this week to US Ambassador to Israel Dan Shapiro attacking the Obama administration's foreign policy.

Rabbi Henkin, a dual US-Israeli citizen, was brutally shot dead along with his wife Naama in front of their four children in Samaria exactly a week ago. A five member Hamas terror cell has been arrested for the murders. 

Blasting US President Barack Obama's "unexplainable and unjustifiable policy," Dr. Yigal Henkin sarcastically offered his "condolences" to Shapiro for having to defend it on a daily basis. 

"You have to defend a US government which on the one hand demanded that Israel should not free Palestinian terrorists with American blood on their hands, and on the other hand demanded that Israel will free Palestinian terrorists with Israeli blood on their hand," Henkin slammed. 

"Apart from the blatant hypocrisy, the US government has seemed to forget that by doing so it raised the chances that more people, among them US citizens like my brother Eitam, would be murdered at the hands of a cold blooded terrorists."

Henkin further accused Shapiro of defending a "government that appeases its enemies and pressures it friends" as well as one that is "so full of itself" it allowed officials to argue the Obama administration would be the one to solve the Israel-Palestinian conflict. 

"How unfortunate it was that the Arab-Israel conflict cannot be solved by pulling US troops out and declaring the war has been won," Henkin concluded.
