Jewish Jihad on Palestinians: Israeli Squatters burn mosque near Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — Extremist Jewish settlers set fire overnight Tuesday to a mosque in the southern West Bank town of al-Jaba west of Bethlehem, locals told Ma’an.

As worshipers arrived around 4:30 a.m. Wednesday to prepare for the dawn prayer at al-Huda mosque, they saw smoke and flames rising from inside the building.


Worshipers alerted neighbors and together they joined forces until they managed to put out the fire.

Racist slogans calling for killing Arabs and Muslims were sprayed on the walls in Hebrew.

The Palestinian foreign ministry said the attack was tantamount to “an official declaration of religious war,” the official WAFA news agency reported.

“This new attack is a sign of the mounting violent extremism within Israeli society,” it said.

The attack coincides with the 21st anniversary of the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre in Hebron when an extremist American-born Jew Baruch Goldstein opened fire at Muslim worshipers at dawn prayer.

The attack killed 29 people and injured more than 120.

  1. “America” ??????? Be specific.

    The American people, “America” is not represented by the American government, military, national news medias, etc.

    The US Congress and government represents and supports the corrupt Billionaires that own Congress, the Federal Reserve, the Military Industrial Complex, the national news medias including the PBS, etc.

    If Americans were “honestly, truthfully informed” they would replace the Democrats and Republicans with honest, intelligent and spiritual individuals that would represent the 98% of Americans.

    A good start would be to prohibit millionaires from holding any public office: federal, state, county and local. Take the money out of politics. And, prohibit smooth talking lawyers, attorneys, any that have graduated from law school or not, and any that have passed or failed the bar exam. Learning how to manipulate the English language is not an honorable profession.
