"350 Israelis came yesterday to the mourning tent of Suha and Hussein Abu Khdeir in Shuafat and comforted them one by one along the row of mourners.I went yesterday with the group and it was very sad. There are two mourning tents, one where the men of the family are sitting, and the other, right next to the house, where the women, including Suha, are sitting. I went into the men's tent and shook hands with a line of men of the family, and then went to the women's tent and sat while women went up to Suha to offer her comfort. She was distraught and crying as the row of women came up to her, one by one.
Those who held back (from protesting) the burning and desecration of 34 mosques and churches were shocked that Jews burned an Arab boy to death.
In building friendship and peace between the peoples we will be comforted."
