Palestinian man gets threats for saving US Jewish students

Faiz Abu Hamadia looks out from the window of his house in Hebron. Abu Hamadia saved five yeshiva students who accidentally entered the city and became the victims of rioting Palestinians there.

Faiz Abu Hamadiah of Hebron in the West Bank says he has been receiving death threats over the past few days, ever since he gave shelter to five American Jewish tourists who entered the city in their car and were attacked by a Palestinian mob.

In an interview with Channel 2 aired Sunday evening, Hamadiah said people threatened to “burn his house down, or cut off his head” in the wake of the incident Thusday.
The 51-year-old was characterized by the interviewer as “a hero.” But he brushed off the praise, saying, “I’m not a hero; this is what every person should have done. I did it because I’m a human being. With all my heart, I’m a man of peace.”
