of thugs and vandals. This case of course is a sample. So, first, as a Jew and an Israeli, I wish to apologize to the people affected while hoping that they will recover from this case as fast as possible both physically and emotionally. Second, I wish to point out to them and to others the fact that upon learning about this case Jewish leaders in Israel - political, educational and religious - have condemned the case and explicitly stated their objection of harming any innocent person and their strong objection of desecrating any religious site, be it Jewish, Christian, Muslim or Druze. And finally, Israel's police, it is widely reported in the Hebrew press, has started a major hunt after the perpetrators with the full intention of catching them and bringing them to justice. Let us hope this is the last case in which "the other", be it an Arab, a Jew or anyone else, is targeted to be harmed and violated.
