Firebombs Thrown at Home of Bedouin Sheikh Shalit Activist

Two firebombs were thrown this past Sunday at the home of Bedouin Sheikh Salam Hozeil, who has been one of the few voices in the Israeli Arab community expressing sympathy for the plight of kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit.

For more than a year, Hozeil has single-handedly conducted a public campaign demanding that Hamas terrorists release Shalit and often has been threatened by radicals within his own community. On Sunday, the threats against Hozeil took a new and dangerous turn, with unknown assailants throwing the firebombs at one of the bedrooms of Hozeil’s home in the Negev Bedouin city of Rahat, while his family was at home, sleeping.

Anyone condemning this attack?
