NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Local officials in Madama village, south of Nablus, said Monday that dozens Israeli settlers from the nearby Yitzhar settlement were behind the torching of agricultural lands and an attack on a farmer.

Village council member Hasan Ziyada said locals counted 37 settlers in all, in four separate groups, harassing farmers in the Ein Ash-Sha’ira area to the south of the village.

Farmers argued with the settlers, the official said, after which one of the groups set fire to fields and fled.

Hardly believable, this is just another fake story similar to the one where settlers were charged with burning 12 sheep

The fact of the matter is that the shepherd started a fire and was negligent in controlling the fire

He confessed to his negligence

However, although Ma'an was eager to post that story with haste,
Ma'an has yet to post the shepherds confession

1 ) Ish Kabibble / Delalncey - that is normally the way they operate. For example Maan reported the shark attacks in Egyptian waters (http://www.maannews.net/eng/ViewDetails.aspx?ID=340500), but failed to mention the two Egyptian officials that accused Israel of causing the attacks. You must read an Israeli paper if you want both sides.

I cannot believe the depth of ignorance and bias shown by Ish Kabibble and his colleague. I spent a month in this area of Palestine in October and such events were happening regularly accross the West Bank. I personally witnessed the effects of such behaviour by settlers as did members of the team I was with. These events are part of a war of attrition being waged by Israeli settlers to try and intimidate Palestinian farmers into leaving their land.
