Muslims torch 14 Christian homes in the West Bank

At least 14 houses belonging to Christian residents of Taybeh, a West Bank village northeast of Ramallah, were torched by Muslims from neighboring Dir Jarir on Sunday, to avenge what they termed the dishonor of a Muslim woman.

“The young men predators, who were holding Molotov cocktails, threw them at the houses, which began to go up in flames, one after another,” said Buthaina Sha’aban, a Taybeh resident.

“They vandalized parked cars and beat village residents who went out into the streets. Entire families were thrown into the street after their homes were torched. Not much remains of their property. We urge all international, Israeli, and Palestinian actors to intervene and protect village residents from the Muslim rage.”

The attackers also torched stores, a farm, and a gas station.

PA security sources said the rampage was triggered by an incident last week in which a 23-year-old woman was killed by her relatives because they suspected her of carrying on a romance with a Christian man from Taybeh.

The woman was quickly buried, but last Tuesday, the PA police exhumed the body for an autopsy.

Where’s your outrage, Ibrahim Hooper, you two-faced snake. You only call for law and order when it’s beneficial to Islamists, but if Jews or Christians are abused by Islamists, you’re silent and altogether useless.
