He will be buried next to his young son Ali.
Tensions are obviously running high and at time of writing Israeli authorities have failed to apprehend or charge any person or persons in connection with the arson attack in late July according to the The Guardian, which reports;
Ahmed Tibi, a deputy speaker in the Knesset, representing the Arab-Israeli Joint List, said at the funeral that Jewish terrorists had burned 15 houses and yet not one has been arrested.
The Times of Israel however reports Meir Ettinger, the 23-year-old grandson of assassinated extremist rabbi Meir Kahane was arrested Monday in connection with the arson attack.
He is described as a member of the “hilltop youth.” Is it only me or does that phrase have echoes of the 'Hitler youth movement' to you too?
The Times of Israel adds this description of the group - "young people from religiously observant families who move to settlement outposts, resist soldiers’ attempts to evacuate them, and intermittently carry out “price tag” hate crime attacks on Palestinian, Christian and Israeli targets."
In other words terrorists.
Ettinger is reportedly a radical member of the hilltop youth. He is suspected of incitement or conspiracy rather than actually carrying out the arson attack himself.
The shameful and despicable arson attack was carried out at night. Equally shameful is the lack of arrests.
Catching the arsonists needs the will to do so as much as all else.
It is not difficult to imagine what could have happened had the arsonists been Palestinian and the victims Israeli.
After all Israel has invaded Gaza and killed hundreds for less.
"This is an act of terrorism in every respect. The State of Israel takes a strong line against terrorism regardless of the perpetrators," Benjamin Netanyahu said in a tweet reports BBC News Friday.
But his words, hollow or genuine, may not be enough to calm the situation.
The Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO), which dominates the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank, said it held the Israeli government "fully responsible for the brutal assassination" of the child, Ali Saad Dawabsha."This is a direct consequence of decades of impunity given by the Israeli government to settler terrorism," it said.
Tensions in the area are running high this week.
Properties deemed illegally built on Palestinian land in the settlement of Beit El were ordered demolished by a court.
One of the houses in the arson attack Thursday night was unoccupied.
But the other was home to a family.
"Resident Ibrahim Dawabsha told Reuters news agency he heard people shouting for help. "We found the parents outside with burns, they said there was another son in the house, we brought him out and then they said there was another boy inside, but we couldn't reach the bedroom because of the fire. He was left inside until rescue forces came," he said."
Four men, and I use that word loosely, carried out the attack.
