Lucy's Organs Were Donated, PA Will Pay Her Killers $1 Million
Economy Minister Nir Barkat was interviewed Tuesday, April 11 on American media, on the murder of Lucy Dee and her daughters Maia and Rina Dee in a terrorist shooting attack in the Jordan Valley.
Barkat stated that the murders showed the difference between the State of Israel and its enemies. "Unfortunately, when the mother died just a few hours ago, they [the Dee family] donated the organs to save other people's lives."
"And on the other side, the terrorists - do you know what they're going to get from the Palestinian Authority? A million dollars for the rest of their lives - for killing innocent Jews," he said.
"That's the difference between living as Jews, seeking life and making a better life for other people, and the terrorists, who all they seek is death. That's all they seek," Barkat added.
Lucy, Maia, and Rina Dee were shot by a terrorist while they were driving in the Jordan Valley on Friday. Maia and Rina, ages 20 and 15, were killed at the scene. Their mother, Lucy, was critically wounded and succumbed to her injuries Monday.
Rabbi Leo Dee, the husband and father of the victims, decided to donate his wife's organs to save the lives of five people. “Five lives were saved and two cornea donations will be made, which is very good news for the family as much as a comfort as possible given the circumstances.” (INN / VFI News)
“God, we pray that the now family of four will find some peace in this time of mourning. We hope that the terrorists who robbed these people of their loved ones will soon be discovered and receive justice for their horrifying crimes.”
