Arabs Caught Desecrating Jewish Holy Books

Three Arab youths were caught Saturday night trying to burn Tehillim (Pslams) books at the Mount of Olives Cemetery. The three youths, about 16 years of age, were residents of an Arab neighborhood next to the cemetery. The three were arrested; two of them confessed, while the third was found to have been involved, despite denying involvement.

Police said they plan to accelerate prosecution of the case. Reports in many media outlets, including Arutz Sheva, have featured complaints from many Israelis about Arab vandalism and desecration at the Cemetery.
