This should not be happening

This hurts, particularly because of the usually excellent relations between Druze and Jews, and particularly because Peki'in is the only town in Palestine that had a tradition of continuous Jewish settlement over 2,000 years.

Jewish-owned home torched in Peki'in by Druze youth
By Jack Khoury, Haaretz Correspondent Last update - 13:36 11/02/2008

A Jewish-owned home was set on fire Monday in the upper Galilee village of Pekiin, in a move that police say served as a warning by Druze youth to locals who sell their homes to Jews.

The house was purchased four months ago by entrepreneur Naftali Friedman who planned to turn it into a hostel. The house is located adjacent to the village spring in the center of town and is currently empty due to renovations.

The home owner arrived Monday morning to find that tires were set on fire inside the home causing serious damage. No one was hurt in the incident.

Since violent riots broke out in November between police and Druze youth over the burning of a cellular antenna in the village there have been a number of incidents in which Jewish property was damaged.

The clashes left dozens injured, including three people who sustained injuries after police shot them using live rounds.

In December, the home of a Jewish woman who had been living in the town for a year was also lit on fire. The woman complained earlier that locals in the village had been harassing her and had tried to sabotage her property.
