A Jewish 'Militant', cont'd

So as the victims are being buried, it seems that the perpetrator is still in the morgue. The IDF decided that they will not offer a military burial. I can understand this. He disgraced the army and the state. So that's a no-brainer.

What troubles me is that his family is having trouble finding anyone to even give a civilian funeral.

Israeli municipalities have refused to grant him a civilian funeral. Zaada's family and friends raced to Israel's national mortuary and demanded he be brought to rest. His body is to stay there over the weekend as talks continue.

"Even suicide bombers receive a proper funeral," Zaada's attorney, Benny Deref, told Israel's Channel 2 television.
This is almost ironic and again falls into the state jumping all over themselves to distance themselves from this. When a palestinian blows himself up and takes innocent women and children with him, he's honored to a mass funeral with thousands, and even the PA, calling him a 'shahid', a martyr. But when a palestinian gets killed by his own people for 'collaborating' with the zionists, even his own parents want nothing to do the the corpse.

Can you picture thousands of Jews lining the street, bearing his body while shooting in air, proclaiming Eden Nathan Zaada a hero?! What would the world say?

But no. We're Jews and have decency. So give the man a burial.

On many occasions, especially within the last few weeks, many confused Jews have questioned me regarding the Torah’s opinion on the Kahane idea. To most Jews, it is a very complex topic, where you may find some people for it and others in vehement opposition. But what do our great sages say?
