Withholding blame, US issues harsh condemnation of Nablus-area deadly arson

The State Department harshly condemned the deadly arson at a Palestinian village but stopped short of attributing it to Jewish extremists.

The condemnation issued Friday was over an arson committed Thursday at two Palestinian homes near Nablus. An 18-month-old baby perished in the fire, which injured several of his relatives.

The European Union blamed violent Jewish settlers for the crime, whose perpetrators left Hebrew-language graffiti about revenge. These and other clues made Israeli police suspect it was a hate crime carried out by Israelis.
