Chairman of the Jewish Leadership Council, Sir Mick Davis said:
We unequivocally condemn the terrorist atrocity carried out by Jewish extremists in the West Bank last night. The murder of 18 month old Ali Saad Daobasa is a tragedy and an affront to our values as Jews and as human beings. Israel’s leaders from across the political spectrum have condemned this crime and the authorities must act swiftly and decisively to bring the perpetrators to justice. Extremism and hatred must be rigorously opposed. While extremists seek to fan flames of tension and conflict, we hope and pray for calm”.
