Palestinian terrorists are generally revered as martyrs by their populace. Violence is a means to an end. Certainly there are Palestinians who do not agree with terrorist attacks on Jews, and we have many such Palestinian friends around us. But they do not set the tone.
When Jewish settlers beat Palestinians and left-wing Israeli activists with sticks and stones and set a car on fire near Nablus last weekend, the violence of these bullies drew criticism from across the political spectrum. The masked Jews were upset that “strangers” were planting olive trees on a deserted hill. Among other things, an 80-year-old Jewish old woman was injured.
With clubs, stones & gas, masked settlers swarmed upon RHR staff & volunteers from the Olive Harvest Coalition. Beating, stoning and torching a car. Volunteer heard saying “they can kill us!” Many injuries. When will Israel end Jewish terror? pic.twitter.com/4QPSulCAe4
