Haredi neighbors console family of man slain by IS

Among the many who came to console the Musallam family after the Islamic State terror group published a video showing their son Muhammad Musallam executed for allegedly being a Mossad agent are many ultra-Orthodox Jews who are neighbors of the East Jerusalem family.

One of the neighbors tells the Kikar Hashabat website: “I got here with another neighbor to console the family after what has happened. We are neighbors and we have good neighborly ties and this is why I came to console them.”

“I am sure other religious and Haredi neighbors will arrive at the family home to console them. We are good neighbors, for good or bad.”

Musallam’s parents denied that their son had any connections to the Israeli spy agency and say their son was captured when he was trying to return home after becoming disillusioned with IS. “They jailed him, beat him and forced him to confess he worked for Israel. Any honest person would be willing to be executed and not say something like that, but they forced him.”
