Just the other day, comes major reports out of Israel, where 5 ILLEGAL Israeli settlers in the occupied West Bank were attacked and murdered, supposedly by Palestinians. Unlike the World's media's total disregard for the horrendous murdering of 9 Humanitarian workers on the Mavi Marmara back in May of this year, the World's media has been all over this report in an instant! There has also been almost instant "condemnation" by the US State Department for this attack... Gee.. Where were they when the Israelis murdered the 9 innocent people back in May on that flotilla? I guess the chosen ones matter more than anyone else....
I have been searching for a more balanced and unbiased report on this supposed attack by Palestinians against illegal settlers in the occupied West Bank, and I found one courtesy of the great website, Desert Peace, at www.desertpeace.wordpress.com, and I want to present it right here for my own readers to view. My comments to follow:
During the day settlers stormed several villages in Nablus, including Burin and Huwwara, entering homes and harassing residents. Settlers handed out leaflets threatening the lives of villagers in Beitillu, near Ramallah, and threw rocks at Palestinian cars in Hebron.
Saturday evening, five members of the Abu Akar family were attacked by around 200 settlers as they drove back from Hebron to their home in Bethlehem in the southern West Bank.
“Some 200 extremist settlers armed with guns, clubs, and knives obstructed our car on the road from Hebron to Bethlehem. We tried to run away, but they hurled stones at the car smashing its windshields.
“My brother-in-law, the driver, sustained serious wounds and was forced to pull over. I tried to step out and take the wheel but they attacked me with clubs. Israeli forces who were watching did nothing to stop them,” Ammar Abu Akar told Ma’an.
He said he sustained bruises in the back and shoulders while his brother-in-law, 53-year-old Nidhal Abu Akar, sustained serious head injuries. Ammar’s father and two of his uncles, Muhammad and Khalil Abu Akar, were also injured by stones and shattered glass.
Ammar said the family narrowly escaped death after one of them managed to take control of the car and sped away to a hilltop through a dirt road.
In Hebron, settlers set fire to a Palestinian car in Tel Rumeida. Other mobs of settlers attacked Palestinian cars and homes on the main road in Beit Ummar and the nearby Al-Arrub refugee camp.
Beit Ummar popular committee spokesman Muhammad Ayyad Awad said a group of settlers opened fire and hurled stones at Palestinian homes.
Meanwhile, he added, Israeli soldiers fired tear gas canisters near the homes.
In the village of Nabi Salih west of Ramallah, settlers tried to enter Palestinian homes near the main street, but were stopped by residents. Locals set fire to used tires at the village entrance and stationed themselves behind them to defend the village.
Residents said Israeli forces stormed the village firing live ammunition, rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas canisters. Witnesses said Israeli forces entered the village to retrieve the remains of an unmanned Israeli drone which crashed in the area.
In the northern and the central West Bank, Israeli settlers hurled stones at Palestinians driving on the main road between Jerusalem and Nablus near the Israeli settlements of Ofra and Bet El. No injuries have been reported.
Israeli soldiers intervened and scuffled with the settlers trying to move them back, onlookers said.
Za’tara checkpoint south of Nablus was closed, and the main road between Nablus and Qalqiliya was shut down after dozens of settlers attacked Palestinian cars. The Qalandia checkpoint between Ramallah and Jerusalem was closed in both directions for “security reasons,” Israeli authorities said.
Local sources in Nablus told Ma’an that over 100 settlers stormed shops and homes in the northern West Bank village of Huwwara south of Nablus.
In Palestine, Everything is Relative: The Settler Violence You Won’t Hear About
The Israeli daily Ha’aretz, citing a preliminary investigation, reported that the children killed were ages 11, 3 and a 3-month-old baby. The newspaper also said that another 12-year-old daughter and two of her younger brothers managed to escape.
The attack shattered a relative calm that had prevailed in the West Bank in recent months as Palestinian security forces assert greater control in the territories where they are allowed by Israel to operate and as Israeli and Palestinians forces coordinate security efforts.
Last August, four Jewish settlers were killed in a drive-by shooting in the West Bank.Zacharia’s chronology is likely representative of the broader mainstream media’s coverage of these events, sadly. American readers or consumers of mainstream media (MSM) are delivered a simple, straightforward message: Israelis are killed about 6 months apart and in between everything was calm.
NTS Notes: The facts presented here are absolutely true, and can by backed up by anyone doing their own research.
Yes, the murdering of anyone is terrible indeed. However, we are being subjugated to the Zionist Jewish controlled media that is screaming bloody murder over this incident, and they overlook the fact that more Palestinians are being murdered outright by the Israelis, than what happens by supposed "retaliation" against Israelis.
And the fact is, again, that these settlers are in Palestine illegally, and are grabbing more and more territory from the Palestinians, and causing atrocities all the time against the Palestinian people. It was only a matter of time before the victims take murderous action against their aggressors and murderers.
And to make matters even worse now... It appears that this incident has given the Israelis their much needed excuse to accelerate their criminal settlement program by building hundreds of new illegal settlements. It may be only a matter of time now before the entire region is swallowed up into the sick Zionist Jewish dream of their greater Israel!
Bottom line: It does seem that while attention is focused on Japan, Israel may finally be pushing to eliminate the Palestinians and that "problem" from Palestine itself. This will definitely only be the beginning of more violence to come.
More to come
