The rabbi of the Western Wall and Holy sites in Israel has strongly condemned the weekend mosque arson in a West Bank Palestinian village. In a statement on Sunday, Rabbi Shmuel Rabinowitz said that holy sites must be "off limits" when it comes to the regional conflict, adding that "the severe attack" must be investigated and its perpetrators caught swiftly. "We were all shocked by the attack on the synagogue in Gush Katif and other places in the world when people of no faith and values found a way to attack our holiest ways," he said in the statement. "We must not replicate those vandals."
