Two youngsters from
the educational institution in Bet Haggai settlement have murdered an Arab
passer-by for fun. The two young Golsteins appeared in court shrouded in
prayer shawls. The settlers, and the police officers allied with them, went
out of their way to describe the crime as a "practical joke", in which the
Palestinian "lost his life". They paid the usual lip-service to
Bet Haggai settlement has spread fear throughout the Hebron area. It
was this settlement that urged the army to destroy time and again the home
of the nearby al-Atrash family.
Sending youngsters from all over the country to be educated by these
"educators" is a crime by itself, like appointing a pyromaniac as chief of
the fire brigade.
Whoever is responsible for this crime is the real murderer. Closing
this educational institution is the only valid response.
This week, when an ultra-rightist was elected student chief of
Bar-Ilan, the university of Yigal Amir and Margaltit Har-Shefi, is another
road-sign on the way to perdition.
