Following the firebombing of a house in Duma, and the murder of an 18 month old baby, a group of residents from Gush Etzion came together to pray for the well-being of the survivors of the attack, and to strongly condemn the attack.
The event was also attended by local Sheikh Ibrahim Ahmad Abu el-Hawa, who praised those gathered.
Unfortunately, only a handful of Muslims were in attendance, as many will have feared such a public forum.
This continues on from the public condemnations of the attacks by all sectors of Israeli society including the President, Prime Minister and Chief Rabbis.
