The recent massacre of the Fogel family in Itamar was sickening. What else is there is say?
Too much, apparently. It is deeply saddening to read how this incident is being bandied about for political gain – whether it’s a reported Hamas reference to the attack as a “heroic operation” or the Israeli government’s cynical approval of 500 housing units as a “price tag” for this tragedy.
Of all the statements I’ve read in the wake of the murders, I think the response of Rabbis for Human Rights really says all that needs to be said:
Rabbis For Human Rights strongly condemns the terrible murders in Itamar. They were of course a violation of the most basic human right, the right to life. We send our condolences to the family.
