    "Blood vengeance against children - even Satan hasn't devised". How true. If there was death penalty in Israel, this despicable and cowardly crime is definitely a reason to prevent the evil perpetrator (and I don't care how many proofs of insanity his future lawyers might produce) from ever waking-up in the morning. This having been said, and in absolutely no way of defending, excusing or explaining the inhuman act, the defunct parents had no business being there to begin with. As for Ya'alon demagogic contention that a murder of a family is an "existential" threat to Israel, it will probably bring him a few votes that he would have garnered in any case but definitely disqualified him from being in any responsible position in a democratic government. This is a murder. A murder of the worst kind (if one can distinguish between one premeditated murder and another) but a murder. Not a weapon of mass destruction waiting to fall on the country.
