ADL Condemns Beating Of Israeli Policewoman In Protest By Extremist Jews
Jerusalem, December 16, 2009 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today condemned the brutal beating of an Israeli policewoman by extremist Jews in Tsofim protesting the settlement freeze, calling it "an affront to Israel's democratic values and, if unchecked … a threat to the unity of the Jewish state."
ADL's Israel Office issued the following statement:
We are deeply troubled by this reckless act of violence. Those who refuse to express their views in a peaceful and non-violent manner are an affront to Israel's democratic values and, if unchecked, represent a threat to the unity of the Jewish state.
The perpetrators failed to consider the consequences of their actions and, as a result, injured a policewoman. This deeply disturbing trend of increasing violence emerging from extremist Jews living in the settlements must be condemned by all those who believe in the importance and sanctity of achieving goals through non violent means.
