Mosque claims slander all Jews

If it was Jews which were responsible for the arson attack on the mosque in the northern Israeli town of Tuba Zangaria (Online, October 3), their disgraceful action must be unreservedly condemned as being against all the values of Judaism.

However, we do not yet know who was responsible.

It is just as likely that the arson attack was made by Arabs in order to use it as propaganda against those living in the 'illegal settlements on occupied Arab land'.

If some Arabs are prepared to blow themselves up to further their cause, they could just as well vandalise their mosques and spray Hebrew slogans on it to make it look like a settler attack.

Until the culprits are caught, it is libellous to suggest that it was Jews who were responsible.
