Abu Khdeir: No proof killers of Israeli teens aren’t Jews

Hussein Abu Khdeir says there’s no evidence that the murderers of Gil-ad Shaar, 16, Naftali Fraenkel, 16, and Eyal Yifrach, 19, were not Jews.

In a conversation with the grandfather of Gil-ad Shaar, Shmuel Shai Cohen, on Channel 2, the father of the slain East Jerusalem teenager says while suspects are being held for burning his son alive — a murder for which he says there is no precedent except for in Israel — it remains unknown who is behind the murder of the three Israeli teenagers.

Shaar’s grandfather, visibly perturbed, interrupts to stress that the three were definitely murdered by terrorists.

“Bring me someone who said they killed them,” Abu Khdeir replies.

Cohen also asks Abu Khdeir if he comes to Shuafat to offer his condolences to the Abu Khdeir family, will Hussein come back with him to the Shaar family. Abu Khdeir says “Why not?” at first, then appears to back out by saying that Cohen should not come now, since things are chaotic in Shuafat.

Cohen responds by saying that if Abu Khdeir comes to Talmon, not a hair on his head would be harmed.
