[ Ed. note -We now have a new group of “Jewish settlers” coming to lay claim to Palestinian land–only in this case they are coming all the way from India. I received the link to the following article by email sent from a friend of mine who comments as follows:
On Monday morning, infamous Israeli settler Anat Cohen attacked a group of school-children harvesting olives near their school in occupied al-Khalil (Hebron). She then ordered the soldier to not only evict the students and teachers from the area, but assist in her attack.
A group of scout students was helping Palestinian families, picking olives for them next to the Qurtuba school on Shuhada Street. Immediately after the group started picking the olives, a soldier from the nearby Daboya checkpoint came to order them not to pass the fence when harvesting, but allowing them to harvest the olives, as long as they don’t cross the fence.
Twenty-four-year-old Meir Ettinger, one of the primary figures in a group of Israeli settler youths believed responsible for the arson attack on a Palesinian family’s home last year, will be freed by Israeli authorities on June 1.
In the photo above we see five-year-old Ahmed Dawabsha greeting the children of his village of Duma after returning home from Spain. I have a feeling when this kid grows up he’s going to be one special human being.
Christmas does not seem to have brought peace to Occupied Palestine, if anything the opposite. Four Palestinians were killed in the West Bank yesterday, and news has emerged of a mob of crazed Israelis stabbing a photo of 18-month-old Ali Dawabsha, the toddler killed in an arson attack back in July…
