Suspect in Revenge Killing of Palestinian Teen Hunted Victim, Prosecutors Say

posted on August 18, 2014

In The Washington Post, Anne-Marie O’Connor reports that prosecutors are calling the revenge killing of an Arab teen after the murder of three Israeli yeshiva students a “hunting expedition.” Led by Yosef Haim Ben-David, the son of a prominent Orthodox rabbi, the killing shocked both Jewish and Arab communities. “Many Israelis say they were appalled to see one of their own charged with murdering an Arab child,” O’Connor writes. “The revenge killing undercut Israel’s sense of moral superiority and exposed Israel to charges that Jewish extremists follow the same rules as Palestinian terror cells.”
