Today, an appalled Jewish community woke up to the sad news that 6 Jewish extremists had been arrested for the murder of Mohammed Abu Khdeir..
From our friend at Elder of Ziyon, cross-posted by Jewish and Zionist bloggers throughout the world.
Israel is a country run by the rule of law. There are reports that Jews have been arrested for this crime. If a trial finds that Jews are indeed guilty of this unconscionable killing, our condemnation is redoubled. The idea that Jews could do such an act fills us with shame and horror.
The people who murdered Mohammed do not represent us in any way. It is not enough to dissociate ourselves from the dreadful act; we must also ensure that crimes like this are never repeated.
Just as the appalling murders of Naftali Fraenkel, Eyal Yifrach and Gilad Shaar do not in any way justify the hideous murder of Mohammed Abu Khdeir, neither does Khdeir's murder justify the violence, terrorism, destruction and incitement we have seen over the past few days against Israelis and Jews.
We hope and pray that everyone, Arab and Jew, lives in peace and security in the region.
