Their Excuse Won't Work

As Haaretz reports, the Arabs who murdered a Jewish man and his infant son are attempting to use for their defense their wish to revenge a "price-tag" activity:

Palestinians charged with killing West Bank man, baby to avenge 'price tag' attack

Palestinians suspected in the killing of a West Bank resident and his infant son wished to avenge the '"price tag" torching of a nearby mosque, an indictment submitted to an Israel Defense Forces court said on Tuesday...Police investigating the death of the two, who were found in their car after it flipped over near the West Bank city, discovered a large rock with signs of blood on it.

An indictment submitted to the Judea military court on Tuesday, claimed that the defendants charged with the Palmers' killing, Mahmoud Muhammad Albai, Waal al-Araja, Ali Saada, and Mohmmad Khalil Albo, intended to kill Jews in retribution for the torching of the Qusra mosque earlier that month.

...According to the indictment, al-Araja and Saada met on the day of the killing, following Friday prayers, and proceeded to advance to route 60 in the West Bank in a taxi owned by al-Araja, and which facilitated their rock throwing activities, even before the Palmer killing.

So, even before the "price tage" activity they were attempting to injure, maim and murder Jews.

Oh, and that headline has an error: "Palestinians" is an adjective, not a proper noun. If Haaretz wants to inform us that the perpetrators were Arabs, they need to spell that out.
