NIF Statement on Itamar Murders

4 April 2011

The New Israel Fund is deeply pained over the murder of the Fogel Family in Itamar and vehemently opposes any justification of such an inconceivable crime. Murder is the most extreme violation of our most basic human rights – the right to live. Violence against citizens is illegal and completely counterproductive to legitimate democratic processes.

The New Israel Fund sends its deepest condolences to the family of the victims.
