PM: Mosque Images Shocking and Out of Place in Israel

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu ordered the Shabak Israel Security Agency, on Monday, to locate those responsible for Sunday evening's arson at a mosque in the Upper Galilee Arab village of Tuba-Zangharia as soon as possible.

The Prime Minister's Office reports that Netanyahu was outraged at pictures of the scene and said that it was an act that ran contrary to the ideals of the state of Israel, where freedom of religion and worship are highly valued. He said, "The pictures are shocking and out of place in Israel."
