Extremist Israeli settlers on Wednesday morning have sprayed hate slogans on walls of homes and shops near Damascus gate in East Jerusalem, calling for “Death of Arabs.” Jerusalem sources said that such groups have often targeted not only houses and shops, but also mosques and churches in Jerusalem, in addition to repetitive arson attacks. None of the attackers was sanctioned by Israeli government.
To their part, Israeli occupation authorities claimed to have opened an investigation in the matter, but Jerusalem locals assured that these investigations are never taken seriously.
The added that, if detained, the attackers are released under the claim that they have mental-issues. Despite the numerous attacks on Islamic and christian sanctuaries, none of the extremist Jewish settlers is held accountable for their crimes.
On a related matter, Israeli occupation police on Wednesday morning stated they were not able to identify the settler who torched home of 18-month-old Ali Saad Dawabsheh, who was burned to death in the attack. The police asked for help from the people to hand any information they have on the case.
The arson crime of burning alive the toddler Dawabsheh, was faced by Israeli condemnations and a 6-month administrative detention order for one extremist suspect. The detainee is also suspected to have participated in the burning of the Church of Loaves and Fishes in Tiberias.
The Israeli police as well arrested far-right activist Meir Ettinger, but he has not been named as a suspect in the attack yet, reported i24.
Ettinger, whose grandfather Meir Kahane founded the racist anti-Arab movement Kach, was arrested on Monday “because of his activities in a Jewish extremist organization,” a spokesman for the Shin Bet internal security service told AFP.
The court prolonged the incarceration of Meir Ettinger until at least Sunday, judicial sources said.
