Palestinian “child” who murdered Dafna Meir in front of her children gets life in prison

Palestinian “child” who murdered Dafna Meir in front of her children gets life in prison

“I stabbed her until I could no longer pull the knife out of her body,” confessed 16-year old Morad Bader Abdullah Adais

Next time a group of students from Students for Justice in Palestine chant “Long Live the Intifada,” remember the case of Dafna Meir.

We reported on January 17, 2016, Reports: Palestinian stabs Israeli woman to death at home in front of children:

This has eerie resemblance to the stabbing to death of the Fogel family in 2011, including 6 month old Hadas as she slept in her crib.

Reports indicated that a Palestinian man entered a home in a settlement near Hebron, and stabbed to death a mother in front of her three children. One of the children, 15 years old, gave a description of the man to the police, and he was caught on security cameras leaving the the settlement heading towards an Arab village.

That mother was Dafna Meir.

We reported when the killer was arrested, 15-year old Palestinian arrested in stabbing murder of Israeli mother in front of children and again when he was convicted, Palestinian “child” convicted in murder of Dafna Meir. In June, his family home was demolished.

It was a particularly brutal murder:

The Palestinian teenager who killer Dafna Meir in a terror attack earlier this year told investigators the Israeli mother of six struggled fiercely until her last breath as he repeatedly stabbed her on the floor of her West Bank home with a butcher knife.

“She fought me,” 16-year-old Morad Bader Abdullah Adais said, according to quotes from his interrogation cleared for publication Sunday.

“I stabbed her until I could no longer pull the knife out of her body, and saw another woman approaching,” he said in his confession.

On the afternoon of January 17, Adais told Shin Bet investigators, he waited for Meir, 38, to come out of the front door of her Otniel home and then attacked her.

“I plunged the knife into her so deeply that most of it was inside her body,” he recalled.

“She started screaming, the children saw me and also started screaming, then I stabbed her in her upper body another three or four times. She tried to fight me and tried to take the knife from me. The two children who were there were still screaming, but she continued to resist, so I pushed her, and overpowered her.”

I was in the process of attempting to arrange a meeting with Dafna’s husband during my trip to Israel last June, but was unable to because my trip unexpectedly was cut short.

The killer was just sentence to life in prison:

An IDF court on Wednesday sentenced 16-year-old Palestinian Morad Bader Abdullah Adais to life imprisonment and an NIS 1.75 million (about $458,500) fine for the January slaying of Israeli mother of six, Dafna Meir, in her West Bank home.

A statement from the IDF said the court found that Adais should never be set free, calling it the appropriate punishment for carrying out such a murder “with abnormal cruelty and in cold blood.”

The court recommended that any panel which considers the case in the future not grant him early parole.


The phenomenon of Palestinian children carrying out sometimes deadly attacks unfortunately is not new. It’s also not by accident, it’s by design of a system of incitement:


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


Shin Bet should plant convincing evidence that she flipped under interrogation.

Then release her in Gaza. Hamas will know what to do with her—and her family.

He’s another living, irrefutable argument for the death penalty.

The killer doesn’t have to worry about serving out the sentence. All Hamas has to do is kidnap several Israeli citizens to trade for this monster. The Israelis, will of course, trade him. What a world!
