Many of us knew something just wasn't right about that fire in Duma.  Now that someone has finally had the courage to speak out about this injustice


UPDATE: An important JewishPress article: A PA official told WAFA it was important not to rush into blaming Jewish settlers for last night’s arson, because, should it turn out to have been the result of village in-fighting, the Israelis would claim that the same was true about the previous case of arson. Another home from the Dawabsha clan burned down last night in Duma. There's confusion if it the fire was electrical or from a village feud. So far, the Dawabshe clan in Duma had a house fire in February, a car fire in June and multiple house fires in August.ARE WE GETTING CLOSER TO THE TRUTH HERE!

"There is *information on a conflict of hamulot (Arab clans - ed.), the Shabak (Israel Security Agency) with Palestinian security sources must investigate the motive of the previous arson and provide answers quickly,"

After **Second Duma Fire, MK Demands Investigation

'There is info on Arab clan conflict - find the motive in previous arson quickly,' writes MK *Hazan after another home of same family burned.

"MK Oren Hazan (Likud) on Monday called for a thorough investigation following the fire last night, which burned a house in the Arab village of Duma belonging to the brother of a resident whose house was the target of lethal arson attack last month.

"Palestinian Authority (PA) security forces who investigated the home in Samaria, which belonged to a member of the Dawabshe family, said it was caused by an electrical malfunction. However, unconfirmed reports indicate an ongoing internal dispute in the town may have played a role. HAMAS is actively attempting to use the incident as a cynical tactic to provoke further attacks against Israelis in the area." ArutzSheva

**Just one month after a deadly arson killed two members of the Dawabshe family, another house in the Arab village of Duma was gutted in a fire Monday morning. In an odd twist, that house is also owned by members of the extended Dawabshe family.

Reports of the fire first surfaced on Hamas-linked media outlets, which rushed to blame "Jewish settlers" for "attacking the house" and setting it on fire.

Hi Neshama - I thought I'd let you know that I referred the folks over at haKol haYehudi to this article today. The post in question is By Administrative Order: No talking to your Friends.
