BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) – Dozens of Jewish settlers on Saturday assaulted Palestinian shepherds in the village of Beit Taamar east of Bethlehem, a spokesman of a local popular committee against Israel’s wall and settlements said.

Hasan Breigiyeh told Ma’an that settlers from Nokdim settlement, where outgoing Israeli foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman lives, attacked local shepherds near Herodion.

The settlers, according to Bregiyyeh, stabbed some sheep.

Is there something in the water at Nokdim? First ex-FM Lieberman with HIS rabid record now settlers gone wild, attacking shepherds and stabbing sheep. Is this the sickest place on earth? With gaudy pretensions to being the Holiest? And of course, no-one is ever prosecuted because the behaviour, however vile, is basically commended by the state as religious ardour. Zeal. I mean they're kept there in full knowledge of how they behave! (Isn't Beit Taamar where the Angel appeared to the shepherds

(contd.) as they "watched their flocks by night" and told them about the new Messiah in a manger and proclaimed "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men"? Now home to the weirdest fanatics and psychopaths imaginable who attack defenseless shepherds (in all likelihood descendents of the biblical shepherds) and stab their sheep. It's like something has gone horribly wrong in the Holy Land. Like a nightmare has engulfed it. Like it's fallen into the wrong hands.

Visiting this beautiful area, where you see shepherds in their traditional dress watching over their sheep, you feel like you have stepped back into the days in which the angel announced the birth of the baby Jesus. The idea of people attacking such simple people leading their simple lives is really unbearable. The words that come to mind : ignorance, brutality, ignominious.

While shepherds watch their flocks by night, the settles are committing their brutal criminal acts. Palestine will be free!!

'...The settlers, according to Bregiyyeh, stabbed some sheep...' That really is pretty bizarre, when you think about it. Do we WANT to let these people emigrate to the US when all this is over?

If the Jewish settlers continue to act in a sub-human manner...how can they be considered as humans?

#6 "That really is pretty bizarre, when you think about it." It IS bizarre but then Judaism is bizarre. It's the only religion where destruction is a religious duty. Where the diety commands destruction (Abraham and Isaac) not for a moral purpose, just to show he MUST be obeyed WHATEVER he orders. The ultimate Fuhrer principle. And various biblical figures incur the wrath of HaShem for not destroying ENOUGH. King Saul spared King Agag (and his animals) which was defiance of G-d's Will,

(contd.) a refusal to carry out the direct order "to completely destroy" Amalek, ie. kill EVERYTHING "that breatheth"! Rejected by G-d, Saul went mad and killed himself. (Ezekial was ordered to eat human excrement, presumably his own though unspecified, for some transgression which was commuted to cow dung when he insisted he had always observed the Dietary Laws (!!) Sheep-stabbing settlers fits right in.

#4 "The words that come to mind: ignorance, brutality, ignominious." I think weird and evil would be my choice Carol. But not that they're born that way...in a sense they're victims, created, Manchurian Candidate-style, (Hitlerjugend/Gestapo is a better parallel) by a toxic culture where the worst flourish, and people are encouraged to find the worst in themselves and express it as intolerance, fanaticism and thuggery. Pure cult behaviour. Like the KKK. But they have a tragic air. They're a

(contd.) variant on "cannon fodder", a brainwashed, fanatical avant-garde mobilised on the front line, mad with zeal, doing the dirty work devised for them in Tel Aviv (and New York).
