Christian monitoring group tracks rise in settler violence

"The past two weeks have seen a marked rise in settler activity outside the illegal settlements of Ma'on and the Havat Ma'on (Hill 833) outpost," citing rock throwing, intimidation, harassment, physical violence and even the abduction of a young shepherd "with the aid of the Israeli military and police."

According to the group, settlers from the Carmel colony directed soldiers to seize the goats of a 12-year-old shepherd on Friday afternoon. The boy testified to CPT field observers that soldiers walked downhill from the settlement dairy barns, grabbed his two goats, and told him, “If you want your goats back, you better come here.”


  1. I don't know if any of these settlers are American, but there should be a law against American citizens settling on occupied land or participating by force of arms in an illegal occupation. How do you think a law like that would do in congress? It seems reasonable enough.

  2. Most of the settlers are Americans and their settlement is funded by US money.

  3. The US is willing to allow what it can for its elites,  and this is their design and desire.  Just like the elites in other countries gave leave to their elites to colonize,  supported them,  and let them operate with impunity (see Africa, Algeria,  Central and South America,  India, etc.).
