The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) expressed shock and outrage at the brutal murder of an Israeli couple at the hands of Palestinian terrorists on Friday, pointing to the Palestinian Authority (PA)'s incitement campaign as the direct cause of the murders. 

“There are no words to sufficiently express our outrage, horror and sorrow over this heinous attack which left four orphaned kids who witnessed the murder of their parents," Carole Nuriel, Acting Director of the ADL Israel office, said in a statement. 

"In a week where world leaders gather at the UN  to discuss issues of peace and security, they should all take the opportunity to publicly condemn the attack and the incitement against Israel by the Palestinian Authority, which has created a fertile ground for the recent spate of violence in the West Bank [Judea-Samaria - ed.] and in Jerusalem." 

Rabbi Eitam Henkin and Naama Henkin of the community of Neria were murdered in front of the eyes of four of their children Thursday night as Arab terrorists shot them in their car.

The "military wing" of the PA's ruling party, Fatah, claimed responsibility for the attack early Friday, with one PA political official even justifying the attack as a "natural response" to Jews living on Israel's land in Judea-Samaria.
