Dozens of parents of children in Gush Etzion schools kept their children home on Thursday, in an act of protest against schools employing Palestinians in any capacity. The protest followed this week’s announced arrest of Mahmud Katusha, the resident of Dir Qadis who is in custody for allegedly violently abducting and assaulting a 7-year-old chareidi girl from the school where he is employed, in a community in the Binyamin Council of Shomron.

Parents explain that as a result of the horrific event, parents are concerned for the welfare of their children as a result of schools employing Palestinians. The parents in Gush Etzion stress their fight to dismiss the Palestinian workers from area school began some time ago, but the latest report of an attack, which many believe was perpetrated for nationalistic motives, re-sparked the urgency of their struggle.

  1. The police are no longer sure that the Arab in question committed the crime. They are not even sure any more that a crime was committed.

  2. Well, police investigators never collected evidence of the crime when it was reported the girl was raped, and the girlherself has no idea who raped her, so who the heck are you trying convict? Of course, the palestinian janitor , just Bias and discriminating .
