The Anti-Defamation League on Sunday condemned vandalism of a West Bank mosque which took place over the weekend, apparently by extremist settlers. "We are horrified and outraged by the acts of vandalism early this morning at a mosque in the West Bank that are believed to have been perpetrated by Jewish extremists. As Jews, we know all too well what it is like to have our houses of worship targeted by violence and hate," read a statement from the group's Israel office. "That Jewish extremists may have used such despicable methods to express political opposition is beyond the pale. We join with Israel's political, military and religious leadership in condemning this disgraceful assault," the statement added. Assailants vandalized the mosque in the village of Yasuf early Friday morning, burning prayer carpets and holy books, and leaving behind Hebrew graffiti.
