Yesterday I wrote about the Jewish Settlers of Judea and Samaria that are getting a raw deal from their own government and are the victims of Islamic terrorism in the land of their heritage. The Jewish Settler double victimhood is considered right wing religious extremism especially since recent years has shown the Jews of Judea and Samaria has lost trust in the Jewish State to protect and uphold rights. The Jewish Settler response has been “Price Tag activism”. The essence of Price Tag activism is that for every wrong done to Jewish Settlers a response will pay for the wrong.
Most recently the Price Tag response occurred because the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) bulldozed to settler homes because the President of the Israel Supreme Court has ruled that any land that is not State land (as in the State of Israel) is private land; thus any Jewish Settlers that have built on land not provided by the State of Israel is owned by Arab Muslims. The IDF demolition proceeded even though the Leftist Jews of Peace Now that filed the suit that led to the demolition did not have the documentation to prove the three Jewish Settler houses were on Arab land.
Can anyone say, “Travesty of justice?”!
Here is some more anti-Jewish Settler news that was executed by both the Israeli government and Islamic terrorists: Jewish Settlers Asher Palmer and his baby son Yonatan were murdered. The weapon that murdered Asher was a rock. Guess who is notorious for standing alongside roads throwing rocks at vehicles driven by Jews? The obvious answer is Arabs that call themselves Palestinians committing acts of terrorism out of mere hatred for Jews. Here is a concise description of the murder:
At the same time Abbas was publicly asking the U.N. to grant statehood to the PLO in Judea and Samaria, his citizens were murdering two young citizens of Israel. Their car was hit with a large stone, thrown through the windshield by terrorists driving in an oncoming car.
The terrorists then stopped, stole Asher’s gun from his motionless body, and shot his still breathing infant son. (Palestinian Barbarians Murder Another Baby! Frumline; 9/27/11)
This is the proof of the difference between Price Tag activism and Islamic terrorism. The former vandalizes property and the latter murders innocent people.
The hugest travesty of these murders is that the IDF attempted to cover-up the murders as a car accident. Why would the IDF cover-up the murder of Jews at the hands of Islamic terrorists. THE REASON is Israel attempted to hide the murder because Palestinian terrorist PA President was speaking at the United Nations on the same day! The IDF did not wish to deal with any Price Tag outbursts from Jewish Settlers at the very time Abbas said they would not recognize a Jewish State and that a sovereign Palestine would allow NO JEWS to live in their own land of Judea and Samaria.
