This Israeli father endured heartbreak no parent should ever experience when his daughter was killed by a Palestinian terrorist, after which he was blindsided by the Palestinians’ ability to reward those who commit these heinous crimes.

Shir Hajaj, 22, was murdered by a Palestinian terrorist who rammed a truck into her in Jerusalem, killing three other soldiers in the deadly incident.

After her death, her mother and father were forced to witness a warped system in which the Palestinians financially reward murderers who are jailed in Israeli prisons with amenities that no cold-blooded murderer should be allowed.

Now, her father Herzl is demanding that the Israeli government take a hard line on terrorists and punish the Palestinian regime that pays them to commit crimes, like the one that claimed the life of his daughter.

Herzl pleads for change, to spare even one more family from enduring the heartbreak he lives with every day.
