Shocked and outraged by the brutal murder of parents and three of their children as they slept in Itamar on Friday, President Shimon Peres declared that the perpetrator(s) of the attack had abandoned any vestige of humanity. 

"There is no religion, no faith that permits such atrocities," he said in a statement released on Saturday night by Beit Hanassi.

"Our hearts go out to the orphans and to the whole settlement of Itamar," he said.

Peres was convinced that spurred by the horror of the incident, the defense forces would spare no effort to find the killer(s) and bring him or them to justice.
