Rabbi Daniel Cohen of the settlement of Bat Ayin (The one which the suspects came from) came out against the firebomb attack that injured six Palestinians two weeks ago.
Several teens from Bat Ayin were arrested on suspicion of involvement in the attack. A senior police source labeled the event a "Jewish terror attack."
In a letter to Bat Ayin residents, Rabbi Cohen said, "Such an act is a crime and points to moral degeneration that fails to distinguish between murder and defense, war and terror. Such acts are wrong and reprehensible; they indicate confusion and lack of judgment. "
"We pray that the suspicions against our children are proven false," he said in the letter to the residents.
He urged Bat Ayin's youth "not to be led astray by inflammatory ideas. Build yourselves with Torah and toil. Build this country with hard work and devotion. Join a yeshiva or the army."
