The Shvut Rahel community, where Yaakov Teitel resides, issued a statement Sunday expressing its revulsion by the actions attributed to Teitel. He is accused of a long series of hate crimes directed against left-wingers, Palestinians, gays and messianic Jews. Among the accusations against him are two acts of murder and an attack which seriously wounded a teen from a messianic family. The community expressed hope that the security establishment will reveal the truth, but also "prays that the suspicions against Yaakov Teitel will be found to be untrue, and so long as he was not proven guilty we believe in his innocence." The community also "wishes to emphasize that attempts by left-wing interested parties to exploit the situation for incitement against all settlers are ugly and despicable."
