Palestine: Israeli settlers burn mosque near Salfit

15th Jan 2014

IMEMC & Agencies: Wednesday at dawn, a number of fanatic Israeli settlers burned the entrance of Ali Bin Abi Taleb Mosque, in the Deir Estia village, near the central West Bank city of Salfit.

Local sources said that the settlers infiltrated the village and attempted to burn the entire mosque, but local residents saw them and chased them away, managing to extinguish the fire before it spread.
Israeli settlers are responsible for dozens of similar attacks against mosques, churches, Islamic and Christian holy sites and graveyards in occupied Palestine.

In many cases, they wrote racist graffiti, not only against the Arabs and Palestinians but also, in several cases, against the Muslim Prophet Mohammad and Jesus Christ.

On Tuesday, January 14, 2014, dozens of Israeli settlers, protected by soldiers, took over a Palestinian-owned plot of land in an area east of the city of Hebron, and began planting it with olive trees.

On Monday, January 13, 2014, settlers cut down nearly 50 Palestinian olive trees, east of Yatta town, south of the southern West Bank city of Hebron.

Last year, Israelis attacked, defaced and burned several Islamic and Christian holy sites and graveyards in different parts of occupied Palestine.

They also cut, uprooted and burned hundreds of Palestinians trees, as well as flooded farmlands with sewage water in different parts of the occupied West Bank.

There is no references whatsoever to in this story. It must be all lies.

A balanced view to this article should also consider acts by Muslims against other faiths eg: Christians. Consider the well documented cases of Muslims who are attacking Christian Copts in Egypt and burning their churches, attacks on Christians in Pakistan (85 killed in Peshawar suicide attack), ongoing attacks on Christians in Nigeria (including church bombings in Kaduno State), hostage taking of Christians in Malaysia, abduction of Christian nuns in Syria etc. What about the Muslims in Northern Cyprus who have desecrated the Christian Churches there, turning them into cattle pens and storage rooms – in many instances also blowing up the church structures?
