Attack on Palestinian Youth in Jerusalem

Taken Question
Office of the Spokesperson
Washington, DC
August 22, 2012


Question:   Does the United States have any reaction regarding the attempted lynching in Jerusalem?

Answer:   We condemn in the strongest possible terms the senseless act of hate and violence committed against a Palestinian youth in Jerusalem on August 17. We wish victim Jamal Julani a speedy recovery. Discriminatory acts of violence undermine and discredit efforts toward peace and security between Israelis and Palestinians. We welcome Prime Minister Netanyahu's unequivocal condemnation of racism and violence and his call for a full police investigation. The perpetrators of this hateful crime must be held to account.
