Barak: Treat Jewish Extremists Like Terrorists [View all]

Statement Follows Settler Attack on IDF Base

Published December 14, 2011.

Israel needs to see if the actions of right-wing extremist could be legally defined as terror, Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Wednesday, as Justice Minister Yaakov Ne’eman weighed emergency measures in the wake of recent “price tag” attacks and assaults on IDF troops.

Barak’s comments came after some 50 settlers and right-wing activists entered a key West Bank military base on Tuesday, throwing rocks, burning tires, and vandalizing military vehicles.

In an apparent “price tag” attack earlier Wednesday, anonymous perpetrators set a historical Jerusalem mosque alight, spray painting phrases such as “Muhammad is dead” and “Muhammad is a pig” on its walls.
