Bayt Fajar: Mosque Burned Down by Israeli Settlers
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.
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.
