Jewish teens rip up Koran in West Bank mosque

Ma’an News Agency | July 24, 2012

TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma’an) — Israeli police have failed to arrest two Jewish teenage girls who tore copies of the Koran in Hebron’s Ibrahimi Mosque, the Israeli news site Ynet reported Tuesday.

In March, the girls were caught on security camera tearing up the Muslim holy books and throwing them at the wall when the West Bank mosque was opened to Jewish worshipers. An Israeli border guard noticed them but did not intervene, and later another officer at approached them and stalled them, Ynet said.

A complaint was filed with the police but the girls have not been summoned, the report added.

Israeli police told Ynet the investigation was “ongoing.”

The Ibrahimi Mosque houses the Cave of the Patriarchs, holy to Muslims and Jews. In 1994, US-born Jewish settler Baruch Goldstein opened fire on Muslims praying in the mosque, killing 29 and injuring 125.
