Jordan decries ‘ugly crime’ of torching Palestinian homes

Neighboring Jordan, one of the rare Arab nations with diplomatic relations with Israel, strongly condemned the arson attack on Palestinian homes by suspected Jewish settlers early today in the West Bank village of Duma.

“This ugly crime could have been avoided if the Israeli government had not ignored the rights of the Palestinian people and turned its back on peace... in the region,'' government spokesman Mohammed Momani said.

Extreme-right Israeli activists have committed acts of vandalism and violence against Palestinians and Arab Israelis for years, attacking Christian and Muslim places of worship and even Israeli soldiers.

The attacks are known as “price tag'' violence -- a euphemism for nationalist-motivated hate crimes by Jewish extremists.—AFP
