As my Israeli source reported to me days ago after the first arrest in relation to the Tuba Zangariyye mosque arson attack, the evidence against Yisrael Katz and Elkanah Pikar is slim to none. A Petah Tikvah court has ordered Katz released by Sunday should no new evidence be produced. The Haaretz headline seems to imply that Pikar will be released also though since the case is under gag and they can’t name suspects as I have done, it’s unclear whether they’re referring to Katz alone or both Katz and Pikar.
This corresponds with my claim (shared by Yossi Melman) that there is a lack of will among the security forces to solve Jewish terror crimes. My source told me specifically that the suspects would be released as soon as the furor subsided within Israel over the incident, and that is indeed what appears to be happening. Yet another unsolved crime of Jewish jihadi terrorists.
