UK minister condemns north Israel mosque arson

Oct. 4, 2011 9:56 P.M. (Updated: Oct. 4, 2011 9:56 P.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- The United Kingdom's Minister for the Middle East and North Africa Alistair Burt said Tuesday that he strongly condemned the attack on a mosque in northern Israel a day earlier.

“This intentionally provocative attack on a place of worship is appalling. I note that Prime Minister Netanyahu has also condemned this senseless act of violence," Burt said in a statement.

"I welcome the stated determination of the Israeli authorities to pursue the criminals responsible and to bring them to justice,” he said of the arson in Tuba Zangria, which has been blamed on Israeli extremists.
