Yitzhar Rabbi publicly supporting attacks on Palestinians

Rabbi Yitzhak Shapira from “Od Yosef Chai” Yeshiva in the settlements of Yitzhar has publicly expressed support for settlers’ attacks on Palestinians.

Also known as “price tag” policy, these attacks usually occur as retaliation to what the settlers perceive as government action against them. Unable or unwilling to confront IDF soldiers and police officers, the settlers take their anger on defenseless Palestinians from nearby villages. Recent attacks including burning of cars and houses, vandalizing, beatings of civilians and even torching of mosques.
