Media Release

AIJAC condemns in the strongest terms last night’s arson of two homes in the Palestinian village of Duma in the West Bank, which claimed the life of 18-month-old Ali Darawshe. Evidence at the scene reportedly suggests the involvement of Jewish extremists who had carried out a so-called “price tag” attack.

Terrorism is inherently vile and a moral outrage, and must be uprooted regardless of who perpetrates it. According to reports, Israeli authorities have launched a major manhunt to bring to justice not only those directly responsible for this attack, but those dangerous extremists who associate and conspire with them.

We join Israel’s Prime Minister in his call for the Israeli security agencies to swiftly carry out their investigative work towards speedily bringing those responsible to justice for this heinous act of terrorism.

The Australian Jewish community shares in the sorrow of the Darawshe family and wishes a quick recovery to the injured.
