The incident was blamed on settlers in Nablus.
NABLUS (Ma'an) -- Settlers attempted to set fire to two cars and wrote racist slogans in a Nablus village on Wednesday, a Palestinian Authority official said.

Ghassan Doughlas, who monitors settlement activity in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that settlers from Itamar raided the village of Awarta and poured petrol over cars belonging to Nidal Qawariq and Eyah Qawariq.

The settlers also sprayed racist slogans on several walls in the village but failed to ignite the petrol before fleeing, Doughlas said.

The PA official called on the international community to end racist attacks by settlers against Palestinians.

On Tuesday, a group of Jewish settlers tried to set fire to a Palestinian home near Nablus. Settlers from the Hafad Gilad illegal outpost attacked Farid Tawil's home in Farata village, Doughlas said.

Last Thursday, five Palestinians were seriously injured when settlers hurled a firebomb at their car near Bethlehem. Two four-year-old children suffered first-degree burns in the incident, which Israel's vice-premier Moshe Yaalaon described as "an act of terrorism."

Settlers are rarely prosecuted for acts of violence against Palestinians.

Palestinians had best get out of their homes while they still can. Remember what happened in Europe.

#1 - "Palestinians had better get out of their homes....." Isn't that the main role of these illegal thugs, to get rid of Palestinians - permanently and by any means - and to steal their land, all with the blessing of the Israeli govt?
