Haaretz and AlJazeera have reported on the mosque in the West Bank that was torched by Israeli settlers. It seems that they don’t want a peace process or Muslims around.

Barak: West Bank Arsonists are terrorists and must be stopped

Defense Minister Ehud Barak ordered security officials on Monday to make every effort to track down the arsonists who torched a Palestinian mosque in the West Bank the night before.

The mosque in village of Bayt Fajar near Bethlehem was set alight and vandalized late Sunday night in what police suspected was a “price tag” operation by nearby settlers wishing to protest Israel’s West Bank policies.

“Whoever committed this act is a terrorist in every regard, intent on harming any chance for peace and dialogue with the Palestinians,” Barak said. “This was a disgraceful act and a stain on the State of Israel and its values.

  1. This is simply dreadful. I add my fervent wish to the wishes of so many, many others, that the Palestinians will be able to rebuild & restore their mosque. Is it too much to hope, that the Israeli army will ask for volunteers to help them? It would be such a simple act that would speak to the world.

Have your say!
