(Judaism) Religious Zionism at the Abyss (Huwara)

After two young men were murdered by terrorists in the occupied West Bank, some 400 religious settler nationalists go on a rampage in the Palestinian town of Huwara, killing one, wounding many others, killing livestock, burning down homes. and private property. Backed up by an ultra-rightwing and ultra-religious government and the power of the state, Jewish religion and orthodox Judaism and Religious Zionism in Israel are an organized force of political chaos and violence, a blight on Israeli democracy and on the Jewish people. You can read about it here. I’m postng below a clip from Twitter where they pogromists stopped to davven ma’ariv. About the government of religious-national violence, this article reports that ultra-religious-nationalist Bezalel Smotrich, the minister of finance and a minister in ministry of defense responsible for civiilian matters in the occupied West Bank, called for the government to wipe out Huwara.
