TODAY’S NEWS: Jewish Settlers On The Rampage

Spread the love
Note:  Jewish settlements in the occupied Palestinian territories are illegal under International Law.  An outpost is the beginnings of a new settlement.  Outposts in the oPt are illegal even under Israeli law.  Today Jewish settlers are angry about “rumors” that Israel’s government plans to dismantle them.  Dismantling outposts is one of the few “concessions” the Quartet has been able to persuade Benjamin Netanyahu to make.  The settlers find ways to return.  Settlers are now attacking Israeli soldiers.  Netanyahu fears civil war.  To add to his worries: Israeli settlers raid Jordan border and Hundreds of settlers attack Nablus village.   Peace, Roy
