There are no words to describe the revulsion I feel when I think of the Jewish arsonists whose evil act murdered an 12-month old Palestinian toddler in the Village of Duma. The child’s parents and 4-year old brother are in critical condition. People who do things like this besmirch the name Jew and bring upon the Jewish state the stench of shame and disgrace. I hope that the Israeli police will soon apprehend the perpetrators of this horrible crime against everything for which Jewish values and the State of Israel stand. Once and for all, “May the cry of violence cease to be hear in the land (Isaiah 60:18)!” Make that ANY land ANYWHERE!
