Following Friday's terrorist murder of an Israel family (details here) a funeral has now been held. From Israel National News:
Ya'alon at Funeral: Incitement Makes Any Deal with PA Worthless
by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu
Tens of thousands attended the funeral for the five members of the Fogel family massacred at Itamar on Friday night. The entrance to Jerusalem was blocked off by police and vehicles diverted to an alternative entrance after the huge attendance brought traffic to a standstill. Israel's major television channels provided live coverage of the eulogies for the victims.
Vice Prime Minister Moshe Ya'alon said at the funeral: "The murder reminds us all that the struggle and conflict are not about the size of Israel and its borders but about our very existence. The main thing is the ancient right of the Jewish people to its Land, a right we never renounced, and by which we returned to our land after thousands of years."
"When we think of these murderers, we know that they operate against a background of education that teaches them Jews are fair game," Yaalon added. "[This education] did not begin recently or in 1967. It began at the start of the Zionist enterprise and even before it. As long as this murderous education goes on, as long as the incitement continues, any agreement we sign is not worth the paper it will be written upon, because it will be immediately violated ny those who are the products of this education."In his eulogy, Samaria local authority head Gershon Mesika did not attempt to hide the fact that he blamed the government for the murders. "He who gives the order to remove checkpoints as a gesture to the Palestinian Evil [Mesika deliberately mispronounced the word reshut, 'authority,' as rish'ut, 'evil' - ed.], he who prevents the fixing of a fence due to legalistic whims, he who gives orders to fire at Jews, will not be able to bask in his innocence after the murder of five members of one family."More building for Jews is the “revenge” for Arab terror, Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger said. “The Creator, and not us, will avenge the spilled blood,” he said.
Former Chief Rabbi of Israel Yisrael Meir Lau said, “There are times when there are no words and when one feels helpless with pain and anger.”...
There ARE no words I can add to this story, as I stand with this family, and Israel, in yet another time of grief.

Why Is THIS Acceptable To The World?WARNING: THESE PHOTOS ARE EXTREMELY GRAPHIC AND NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN.
Why is the MURDER of 5 innocent Jews acceptable to the world and the world will scream bloody murder if an Arab develops a hangnail?
Photos of the murder of the Fogel family in the town of Itamar, north of Jerusalem, on March 11, 2011 by Arab terrorists.
These photos were released by the family. They have given full permission for their use in order to report on the horrific reality of murdering children and babies in their sleep, "simply because they are Jewish."...
There are pictures, and they ARE graphic, but please go look, and read more here.
