UK: According to a press release put out by the Islamic Theology on Counter-Terrorism (ITCT), which appeared in Israel’s Jerusalem Online, ITCT’s Founder and Executive Director Noor Dahri said, “Ari was a brave man, loving husband and a caring father. He always stood against terrorism and extremism. He was a vocal voice for the nation of Israel and he cannot be replaced.”
Dahri proclaimed, “Terrorists cannot beat us and stop our voice for peace. Even our brave heroes in their daily life of action against terror, they win. Terrorism will be defeated by our brave heroes like Ari Fuld.”
The Jerusalem Online further reported:
According to a Shin Bet report that the Islamic Theology on Counter-Terrorism (ITCT) obtained, the knife that the terrorist used to murder Ari was hidden inside a toilet booth at the center. A security guard at the mall searched the body of the terrorist, who has been identified as 17-year-old Khalil Jabareen, but found nothing on him. Before the terror attack was implemented, the terrorist spent about an hour at the scene of the crime and aroused the suspicion of the security guards.
Ari Fuld was well known not only among Israelis because of his activism but also among many American Jews and Muslims for his outreach efforts within the local communities. He leaves behind four children.
