Jewish Settlers Fire Into Unarmed Palestinians

An Israel human rights group released footage which shows Jewish settlers in Hebron shooting at unarmed Palestinians. Israel police had forced settlers to evacuate a house which resulted in fighting between the settlers and police, but the settlers were not content with merely attacking their own police, but attacked innocent Palestinian bystanders. The video footage shows a settler shooting at Hosni Bua Se’ifan and his father who both were wounded. Palestinians grabbed the gun and turned the shooter over to the police. A question is why police were not able to prevent settlers from running wild through the streets of Hebron attacking people.

Robert Serry, the UN Midle East coordinator, said, “I condemn the ensuing violence and attacks by Israeli settlers against Palestinian civilians.” Of course, on the plus side, Israeli police acted against their own people in attempting to curb violence. How many Arab police forces would protect Jewish civilians. It is time to close down Israel settlements on the West Bank and restore the area to its rightful owners– Palestinians.

Jewish Settlers Defame Judaism By Violence

There are fanatics in every religion who believe they alone know what God seeks from humanity and for some reason, God in their view wants hate and war. A group of Jews have established themselves in the city of Hebron determined to cause trouble by expressing their bigoted words in ways that can only result in conflict with Muslims. These so-called “settlers” have hurled stones and debris at Palestinians, and desecrated graves. One can only assume they are not familiar with expressions of anti-semitism in the world in which Jewish graves have received such violence. Defense Minister Ehud Barak made clear to the settlers they must evacuate a building and cease creating turmoil in the city.

Settlers claim they purchased the building from a Palestinian who admits considering the sale but says he never went through with it. The Israel Supreme Court has upheld military action to compel evacuation of the building. Israel can not allow these terrorists to hold their nation as a hostage to their desires for conflict and violence. They must not only evacuate the building but any area in which Palestinians live.
