This article in Haaretz about one (small) group of colonist settlers, feeling somehow "bad" about the Palestinian condition in the occupied West Bank, are trying to reach out to the villagers which is kind of nice. But as I was reading on I felt a chill running down my spine:
Cohen explains: "There is an awakening to the fact that there is another people here, that there is a story that has been suppressed.

Good, but it looks like there's a problem:
Amrussi says:"There is an expression [appearing in Deuteronomy 7:2] 'Thou shalt not show mercy unto them,' which forbids us from giving other peoples a reason to stay. This expression was adopted by the settlers. They didn't buy from Arabs in order not to give them a reason to stay.

And peace?
'Emily says:I will embrace the Palestinian because I want the Zionist enterprise to survive. I come from a religious place. I say that peace is a despicable, chewed-up and forced word, so it should be put to the side, and we should go to a meeting instead.

Otherwise "nice" people those settlers indeed! It's just too bad their religion seems to be getting in the way! Now I've heard a lot about calls for reform of Islam. Are there any calls to reform Jewish scriptures? That would be nice too.


  1. as crazy as wahhabism.

  2. <span>This is far worse!!</span>

  3. <span><span>I don't know much about Wahhabism to be honest but I doubt it professes CRUELTY..</span></span>

  4. isn't what they do in Saudi?  cutting off hands for theft and all that?

  5. Mojo can back me up on this; the Takfiri extremists are far worse. They have done unimaginable things to "lesser muslims" (Shiites and Sufis) and nonmuslims for centuries.

  6. About these settlers: "Forgive them Lord, for they know not what they do."

  7. <span>That's true and both believe they're following the teachings of some frigging scripture but who gets the bad press and who gets all the support wanted in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Time, etc. not to mention the MSM in general?</span>

  8. Do the takfiris get the support of Fox News, CNN and all the US media as well?

  9. Dear Akhi TGIA; the Saudis have bought much of America. That is why GW Bush kissed the King of Saudi Arabia and looked like his poodle.

    BTW, many countries are bought and paid for by the Saudis. Notice how the Indians and Chinese treat them with kid gloves. In the case of India; Saudi Arabia is complicit in the murder of tens of thousands of Indians by AQ linked Takfiri wackos.

    I would love to see Fox or CNN go after Saudi Arabia. I am still waiting to see it.

    You are right however, that Fox and CNN haven't done right by the Palestinians either.
