Jewish Settlers Torch Mosque Near Ramallah

Local residents of Al Mughayyir village, near the central West Bank city of Ramallah, reported Tuesday at dawn that fundamentalist settlers set the local mosque ablaze, and wrote racist graffiti on it walls, the Palestine Today reported.

Witnesses stated that the Israeli settlers set fire to the mosque at approximately 3 A.M. on Wednesday, before daubing the remains with racist slogans.

The attack on the al-Mughayyir village’s mosque has drawn condemnation from a wide variety of groups in Palestinian civil society. This is the third mosque that has been torched in as many years.

The arson attack is thought to be a ‘price-tag’ attack, carried out by nearby settlers in response to the demolition of ‘Alei Ayin’ illegal outpost by Israeli police recently. One piece of graffiti explicitly stated ‘price tag’ followed by ‘Alei Ayin’ in Hebrew.

The settlers are believed to have come from the Adi Gilad illegal settlement built on private Palestinian lands only three kilometres away from the mosque.

Resident Jihad Al Na’san told France Press that the residents went to the mosque to perform dawn prayers to find it burning down while the flames were streaming out of its windows.

Al Na’san added that the settlers dumped tires in the mosque and torched them, and that the Israeli army and the police arrived at the scene later on as the area is under Israeli military and security control.

Al Na’san further stated that the residents found racist graffiti written in Hebrew stating “We will raze this village” among other racist slurs against the Arabs and the Palestinians.

Mahmoud al-Habbash, the Minister of Religious Affairs in the Palestinian Authority, stated that the arson “indicates the magnitude of the aggression settlers unleash on holy places”. Rebuilding of the mosque is expected to begin immediately.

The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Sheikh Mohammad Hussein, visited the site of the destroyed mosque and said that, “[T]he attack on this mosque is part of a systematic policy aiming to flame the conflict and show disrespect to the religious and human values of others.”

The National Christian Coalition in the Holy Land has also strongly condemned the arson attack. Its president, Dimitri Diliani blamed the ongoing occupation and lack of law enforcement against settlers, noting, “[O]ccupation commits limitless crimes using different means including extremist settlers who are protected by Israeli forces. They do not show any respect to morals, religions, or laws when it comes to attacks against the Palestinian people.”

A month ago, the settlers torched a mosque near the northern West Bank city of Ramallah.

Last year, a group of fundamentalist Israeli settlers broke into a mosque in Beit Fajjar, near Bethlehem, and set it ablaze. Settlers also torched the main mosque of the al-Lubban al-Sharqiyya village, south of the northern West Bank city of Nablus.

In 2009, settlers torched a mosque in Yasuf Palestinian village, near the central West Bank city of Salfit.

One problem. They weren’t wearing stripy PJs. How are we gonna make a movie out of this?

    Well pointed out AdamS. As I wandered past my local shrine to Ba’al Hammon I mused that no one would ever flee in there for refuge. They all have security standing at the gate, massive iron workings, punch pad keying on the gates and weird symbols glaring at the innocent passer by. No one flees for their lives into that hellhole. You will flee into a church, perhaps into a mosque, never into a spynagogoe gagashop. That’s their international spynetwork meeting places.

    But they have to have all the security to be free from persecution. My RE teacher was such a hebrophile (c-zionist) so I have no way of saying this is true or not. But she told us that even in Newcastle today, i.e. the regional Masonic and (coincidentally) J “Community” centre, some people threw piss on our sideburned friends from a bridge. Is that true? Dunno. Seems to belong with the bear cage and the bone pecking eagle, IMO.

    Yeah, the security is cover for saying KEEP OUT. You are not welcome here, this is a den of thieves. what ever is said the opposite is the truth. If any piss was thrown it would be most likely another of their nutter tribe doing it. Like the swaztika daubers. Did you know AdamS that there is a jew only trombone number for the bussies, no hanging around like the rest of us, they get a direct line into head cracking central. That’s how the CHEKA got started, the delicate little flowers. BTW have you noticed ZGR has moved to Iceland and alan greenspan runs the show? :-)
