Hamas affiliated social media exploded Tuesday with violent and anti-Semitic cartoons praising the terrorist attack that killed four people Tuesday morning at a synagogue in Jerusalem.

The two Palestinian terrorists from east Jerusalem armed with a gun and axes, attacked worshipers after entering a synagogue on Agasi Street in the capital's Har Nof neighborhood.

One of the cartoons showed a bloody meat cleaver, such as the one used in Tuesday's attack, with images of the Dome of the Rock and al-Aksa Mosque in the reflection, saying "for you oh Aksa," and in big black letters "Jerusalem resists."

Another image depicted characterized terrorists,  wielding knives and axes in a room of slaughtered religious Jews, lying in pools of blood. One of the characterized terrorists holding a bloody knife in one hand and a bloody axe in the other, says "Where are they"?" - as if he were looking for more Jews to attack.

Additionally, the Hamas affiliated Shehab News agency's Facebook posted letters of support "for the heroic Jerusalem operation."
 

These letters of support came with pictures of passports from around the Arab world, including, Egypt, Bahrain, Tunisia, and Algeria.
