In Just One Month There Were 50 Attacks By Israelis Against Palestinians

It’s time to open our eyes and realize the ugly truth that there are Israeli terrorists terrorizing Palestinians. These terrorists are called ‘Settlers’.

There were more than 50 reports of Israelis assaulting Palestinians in the West Bank last month. In the start of a regular series, Haaretz details one particularly violent attack.


There is still a bruise under Ibrahim Bani Jaber’s left eye. The blows his brother Jawdat received to his right ear didn’t leave any marks, but they still make his head feel heavy. During our meeting at their home in the West Bank village of Akraba last week, they did not spend much time describing the fear and pain they felt when they were attacked. Instead, they spoke about the family’s sheep, that they had rushed to try and save that day, July 7, when they heard that settlers were attacking them.

The violent confrontation – between settlers from Itamar and Giva 777, and Palestinian residents of Akraba – was the worst such incident last month. But it was, nevertheless, merely part of the daily routine of assaults, attacks and incursions. It is only on rare occasions that these incidents become news. In most cases, if there is an investigation there is no indictment.

In other words, the government of Israel is ignoring the brutal attacks on Palestinians perpetrated by land grabbing settlers.  In the West Bank, Israelis aren’t victims of violence, they’re the perpetrators of violence, and the world needs to know it.  I’m glad Ha’aretz has the courage to report what’s going on there.

    Ha’aretz is a good source for what is really going on. Also that what is left for the Palestinian authorities is something like 20% of the occupied territories. In the zone under control of the IDF it is a free for all for the settlers.

    However, Israel is a country in a deep crisis as seen from the suicides (people buyrning themselves). These are Jews acting against the policy of Jews in government, destroying the middle class. In the end Arab Israelis and Jewish Israelis may have more in common than the people supporting the present government.

    It is a good thing that we are beginning to engage the situation as humans and not as somebody isolated in our ivory towers.
