Israeli Paper Claims ‘Jewish Terror’


The Israeli news outlet Ynet has quoted an anonymous police source as saying that a firebomb attack in Gush Etzion was “Jewish terrorism.” Ynet also quoted Arabs as saying that Jews often attack Arab motorists.

Readers who commented on the article were skeptical, pointing out that nearly all past attacks on vehicles in Judea and Samaria have been carried out by Palestinian Authority terrorists, not Israelis. PA terrorists have accidently attacked and wounded Arab travelers in the past.

The Thursday evening attack injured six Arab travelers, including a husband and wife and their two young children. No suspects have been apprehended, and police say they are investigating all possibilities.
