Desecration of the Beit Dajan Mosque
Desecration of the Beit Dajan Mosque

Since the creation of the Israeli state, many extremist groups of Jewish people have desecrated Muslim holy sites. For example, there is proof that Jewish settlers destroyed the centuries-old mosque in Jerusalem by arson and vandalism in 1967. A letter to the United Nations documents Israeli attacks on the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem between 1967 and 1983 through fire, excavations, armed intrusion and shooting of Muslims, and even attempts to blow it up with explosives. In 2011, Israeli settlers attacked a West Bank mosque, setting carpets on fire and spraying graffiti on the walls.
