Jewish-American Charged with Killing Palestinians

A Jewish-American extremist, Jack Teitel, has been charged in Jerusalem Al-Quds district court with 14 counts, including shooting two Palestinians to death.

District attorney, Sague Ofir, said it was an "extraordinary" case with regards to the extent of crimes committed and their severity in a short period using explosive devices and poison.

According to an indictment filed in the court on Thursday, Teitel, 37, who was arrested five weeks ago, began his killing rampage in 1997 when he killed two Palestinians, a taxi driver and a farmer, and stabbed and wounded an Arab in Jerusalem Al-Quds, AP reported late on Thursday.

He has also been accused of anti-gay violence and incitement as well as bombings against a peace activist and messianic Jews who believe in Jesus.

Questioned by a reporter about whether he had any regrets, Teitel said that it had been "a pleasure and an honor to serve my God."

Teitel is an ultra-Orthodox Jewish settler originally from Florida. He arrived in Israel a decade ago. For the past six years he has lived in the West Bank settlement of Shvut Rachel, north of Jerusalem Al-Quds.
