Israelis attempt to torch Palestinian-owned shop in Jerusalem

March 25, 2014 10:13 A.M. (Updated: March 27, 2014 8:48 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Three Israelis attempted to set fire to a gift shop owned by a Palestinian man in Jerusalem late Monday, an Israeli police spokeswoman said.

Luba al-Samri said in a statement that the suspects also vandalized the shop -- located on Jaffa Street in West Jerusalem -- posting slogans reading "Kahane was right," before fleeing the scene.

She said police were investigating the incident.

Meir Kahane was an American-born Israeli rabbi and political figure who advocated expelling all Arabs from Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories.
