Israel Policy Forum strongly condemns the terror attack outside of Havat Gilad that killed Rabbi Raziel Shevach. There is no license to murder civilians, no matter where they are or where they live, and all Israelis have the fundamental right to live free of terror and violence.

This attack must be condemned by the Palestinian leadership, and the Palestinian Authority security forces must assist in bringing the terrorist to justice. Without respect for the fundamental right of Israelis to live free from terror and the renunciation of violence, Palestinians will never see their own nationalist aspirations fulfilled.
