MK Mickey Zohar (Likud) announced Thursday that despite previous declarations to the contrary, he now believes Jewish terror exists. 

Upon being exposed to new data, the Likud MK explained, "I realized very clearly that Jewish terror, whose existence I found so hard to believe, actually exists."

Zohar's change of heart came after he initiated a meeting with Defense Minister Moshe Ya'alon to discuss allegations of torture by the Israel Security Agency (ISA or Shin Bet) against the Jewish youths suspected of perpetrating the lethal Duma arson. 

After Ya'alon assured Zohar no torture was taking place, and all interrogations were being conducted within the scope of the law, he apparently presented the freshman MK with damning information about the suspects. 

"The date and evidence presented to me by the Defense Minister with regard to Jewish terror lit up my eyes, or rather darkened them," Zohar stated. "This is a very small groups of outlaws wreaking shame on entire communities." 

"Although it is only a handful of radical and shocking [individuals], with pain, shock and deep regret, I am forced to retract my statements that there are no Jews who support the murder of innocent people."

Zohar added that the handful of people who belong to this group must be condemned. "The actions which Jewish terrorists support endanger the Jewish people and could lead to a serious disaster for the settlements and the entire State of Israel."
