It's a pity

Jews were slaughtered, have a candy.  From the linked article:

Gaza residents from the southern city of Rafah hit the streets Saturday to celebrate the terror attack in the West Bank settlement of Itamar where five family members were murdered in their sleep, including three children.

Not to be a murderous thug or anything, but if a bomb or two just happened to be lobbed in those streets while people were celebrating the murder of a family, would it be justified?  Is there necessarily a link between people rejoicing that a murder has been committed and those who would commit that murder themselves?

I know, I know... the conflict goes deeper than this.  It goes down to a core of lifelong enemies and prejudice and whatever else, and I know that violence would just justify more violence on Israel and the Jews in Gaza and the West Bank in the name of those killed.  I guess when it comes down to it, it's a case where there is nothing that you can say to these Palestinians that will change their mind from the narrative that they have been indoctrinated to, and it's a pity that another generation will be lost through more of the same.
