Shameful. Knock it off, settlers.

Shameful? that's the understatement of the year.

So, what exactly about this says 'not genocide' to you?

Is it the guns rather than the machetes?

Of course, if you don't see any meaningful differences between what's going on there from what went on in Rwanda lots of people will INSIST that makes you a racist, though their explanations as to how get a little confusing

Exactly Richard. Very well said mate!

In recent news...the IDF Commander dismissed over the drone strike that killed 7 aid workers is a settler from the occupied West Bank who co wrote an appeal to the Israel PM seeking full blocking of aid to Gaza.

Nice.

Israeli settlers rampage through West Bank village, killing 1 Palestinian and wounding 25

Check those word, "rampage" "killing".

If that happened in reverse, "T" word will come out and also word "attack" will be used.

However because who did that is settle who have all privilege, media language using soft tone.

.

Beside that "punishment" that being used by occupier if that perpetrator were Palestinians, whole house of perpetrator will be demolished, left family being homeless.

Whoever settlers just immune of that kind of "punishment".

I see settlers terrorising Armenian Christians in Jerusalem , trying to expel that group with armed fanatics, attack dogs, bulldozers and connivance of IDF and Police.

Armenian Christians have had a presence in Jerusalem since the 4th Century

...this is shameless behavior from an occupying force.

No mention at all in this "news article" of the thousands of acres of Palestinian-owned land in the West Bank stolen by Israel? Or the several thousands of Palestinians arrested and jailed without trial?

The killing came after an Israeli raid overnight killed two Palestinians, including a Hamas militant, in confrontation with Israeli forces.

Israel's current definition of a Hamas Militant: All Palestinians.

Remind me again who the "barbarians" are supposed to be

That includes children, being detained indefinitely because throwing rocks after occupier demolished their family house. Of course they called "prisoner" not hostage, even never without trial.

Dozens of angry Israeli settlers 

Words can be very powerful. Is the inference that these entitled, protected, frequently murderous pirates have a valid grievance?

How about some further context, that in the same West Bank, Palestinians of all ages are subject to draconian military law, while 'settlers,' merely answer to wrist-slapping civil courts. Here's a video of an 8 year-old (yes, eight years old) being dragged from his house for the temerity of throwing a stone at a heavily armoured army jeep:

However there's barbarians that has exclusive privilege, after 30 thousands being killed, no international sanction at all. They even got some funding, weapon and munition.

No action against the settlers. If the attackers were Arabs they would have been shot dead and had their homes demolished.

One rule for the world but the Israel gets a pass because something bad happened to the Jews in the 1940's?

10 ( +12 / -2 )

Let me guess not one of the settlers will be brought to justice and the US is only mulling over sanctioning 1 or 2 of these animals!?

disgusting double standards yet again! These settlers literally get away with murder and are protected or assisted by the IDF while carrying out these atrocities. Yet they try and play the sympathy card like they aren’t the one creating these conditions for retaliation by the Palestinians… Without condemnation of these crimes and continued support for the genocidal zionists, the west has shown itself to be a hypocritical failure!

'Settler' is such a nice way to describe government sponsored, racist, illegal colonizers with an agenda of ethnic cleansing.

Israel’s Settlements Have No Legal Validity, Constitute Flagrant Violation of International Law, Security Council Reaffirms.

https://press.un.org/en/2016/sc12657.doc.htm

It is long overdue for full recognition and compliance with resolution 2334 (2016)

Adopting resolution 2334 (2016) by 14 votes, with the United States abstaining, the Council reiterated its demand that Israel immediately and completely cease all settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem. It underlined that it would not recognize any changes to the 4 June 1967 lines, including with regard to Jerusalem, other than those agreed by the two sides through negotiations.

The Council called for immediate steps to prevent all acts of violence against civilians, including acts of terror, as well as all acts of provocation and destruction. It further called for the strengthening of ongoing efforts to combat terrorism, including through existing security coordination, and to clearly condemn all acts of terrorism. The Council called on both sides to observe calm and restraint, and to refrain from provocative actions, incitement and inflammatory rhetoric in order to de-escalate the situation on the ground and rebuild trust and confidence.

The war in Gaza. is spiralling out of control, with Iran expected/reported to launch reprisal strikes.

De-escalation may require a complete review of Israeli occupation of the West Bank.

Direct moves by US Government into a war could have unprecedented consequences for the middle east and global security.

The world is finally starting to see the intolerant,aggressive Israelis as a major part of the problem.

Thinking that the Israelis have been fair and tolerant of Palestinians ( as they claim) is now shown to be a complete myth.

The world’s continued condemnation of Israel as it shows even more aggression is a given…

a) I think Israeli settlements are illegal and should never have been allowed. They all need to be removed and either sold or demolished. They should have been removed 10 yrs ago as a sign of good faith, assuming they couldn't be stopped or prevented completely.

b) OTOH, the settlers didn't do anything illegal according to the govt. They were attacked without provocation. Their families, friends, were taken hostage by Hamas, raped, killed, mistreated for months, so I can understand the desire for personal payback. Yes, it is wrong. What Hamas did was wrong too.

Of all the people in the world that should be allowed to immigrate to neighboring countries, the Palestinians have one of the best cases for asylum.

The Israeli govt. knows that the politically strong Jewish presence in the US will keep the money tap going every year and the undeniable backing even with a nasty ultra-right criminal like Netanyahu leading.

Palestinian health officials say over 460 Palestinians have been killed in the West Bank by Israeli forces since the war erupted in October.

Why is this so shocking and news other than the fact it was a larger group than usual doing the attacking and killings?

460 since October! Notice the news doesn't ask or if it did doesn't point it out, but an equal number of Palestinians had been killed by settlers in 2023 prior to October!

Before October, 2023 was the deadliest year in the West Bank with nearly 500 Palestinians killed by settlers and an increase in land being taken by settlers from those killed and chasing others off their land.

Before 2023 over 1,000 Palestinians had already been killed by settlers.

The number of settlements has gone from the agreed 140 to 280 by the end of 2023 with 140 new totally illegal settlements all done by force a terror by settlers with IDF backing them up when Palestinisn authority police try to investigate killings and land taking or remove them, using the excuse the IDF is "protecting" Israelis!

These settler terrorist attacks are not new, this was not the first, it will not be the last and not a single person on the Israeli side will be arrested or charged.

But under the guise of being under threat, more weapons will be issued to settlers to " protect" themselves against "revenge" attacks, this is not speculation, this was the pattern done in previous similar situations!

And the USA will veto again any resolution the security Council makes against Israel.
