Ahmad Dawabsheh, the young Palestinian boy who is the sole survivor of a fireboming of his home in the West Bank village of Duma last summer, realized a dream on Thursday in Spain when he met with members of the Real Madrid soccer team, including team star Cristiano Ronaldo, 

The team hosted the boy after receiving a request from the Palestinian embassy in the Spanish capital. Nasser Dawabsheh, Ahmad's uncle, said the boy adores Ronaldo.

Ahmed Dawabsheh's parents and 18-month-old brother, Ali, were killed in the attack on their home in which  Ahmed himself was severely burned. The arson was condemned across the Israeli political spectrum, 

Amiram Ben-Uliel, a 21-year-old from Jerusalem, was charged with three counts of murder-as well as attempted murder for the unsuccessful attempt to set another house on fire. An accessory to murder charge was filed against a minor who is suspected of participating in the incident, while two others were charged with violence against Palestinians.
