Jerusalem court convicts 4 who took part in 2015 ‘hate wedding’ of incitement

The Jerusalem District Court has convicted four participants in the infamous “hate wedding” in 2015, after they were filmed celebrating the murder of a Palestinian baby.

The four, who were minors at the time of the incident, were convicted of incitement to violence. They join the groom and several others who were convicted last year.

The court thus overturns a previous exoneration of the four, determining that they were aware that the photos held up at the wedding were of the Dawabsha family, who were murdered in a deadly firebombing attack in the West Bank village of Duma, and were aware that their actions could lead to violence.

A lawyer for one of the defendants calls the ruling “absurd.” He does not say whether the latest ruling will be appealed.
