On May 2, 2004, David Hatuel's eight-month-pregnant wife and four little girls were out for a morning stroll when Palestinian Arab gunmen mercilessly slaughtered them at point-blank range as they traveled from Gaza's Kissufim Crossing to their home in Moshav Katif.
On August 21, 2005, Israeli security forces acting under orders from the government of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon arrived to forcibly evict Hatuel from that home in preparation for handing the victims' land over to their Muslim killers.
The uncaring henchmen of Sharon were met by heart-wrenching scenes. David Hatuel placed five empty chairs in his front yard, one each for his wife and four daughters, as hundreds of neighbors gathered in tears to watch the bereaved husband and father light memorial candles for his murdered family. Tali Hatuel and her four daughters - Hila (11), Hadar (9), Roni (7) and Meirav (2), along with her unborn son, labeled the first victims of Sharon's betrayl plan.
Palestinian Arab's, watching the heart wrenching scene, hooted, hollered , and laughed as last surviving Hatuel family member was dragged sobbing and crying from the former home of his deceased wife and children. The Palestinian Authority publicly hailed the killers as “heroic martyrs” on its Voice of Palestine radio station.
"Peace at any Price....." Sharon, how very British of you!
