“The National Council of Young Israel mourns all loss of innocent life and believes unequivocally that the murder of a young boy has absolutely no place in Israeli society. We commend the Israeli authorities for acting swiftly to apprehend the perpetrators of this terrible crime.
“While Israel condemned the murder and is taking steps to ensure that those responsible will be punished accordingly, it is troubling that the Palestinian Authority has historically named streets after murderers and glorified their terrorist acts, while Hamas celebrates violence and martyrdom. The difference between Israel’s reaction to a senseless murder and that of the Palestinian Authority and Hamas is particularly striking.”
