J Street applauds and joins with Israeli and Jewish leaders from across the political spectrum in rejecting yesterday’s incendiary and hateful arson attack at a West Bank mosque, believed to have been perpetrated by right-wing Jewish settlers. Prime Minster Netanyahu
, Defense Minister Barak
, and Opposition Leader Tzipi Livni
all offered strong words condemning the attack. We also echo the Anti-Defamation League’s statement
condemning the outrageous attack and calling for political opposition to be expressed in peaceful and legal ways.
