Palestinian Arabs took to the streets of Gaza to celebrate a series of bloody attacks against Israel civilians Tuesday, as Hamas hailed the attackers as "heroes."
The celebrants, many of them children, waved PLO and Hamas flags and brandished an assortment of knives, axes and other real and replica weaponry, in morbidly joyous scenes reminiscent of similar celebrations held after the Har Nof synagogue massacre last November.
Others handed out candies and other treats for children and adults alike.
They were celebrating the murder of three innocent Israeli civilians in two successive attacks in Jerusalem, as well as two stabbings in Ra'anana which left several people injured, one of them seriously.
Although no terrorist group has directly claimed responsibility, Gaza's Hamas rulers were the first to welcome the attacks, hailing the terrorists who carried them out as "heroes."
Preachers and propagandists in Gaza have been leading much of the incitement behind the recent wave of mostly uncoordinated attacks, although Arab leaders in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem have played a significant part too - including Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas.
