NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A settler who mistakenly wandered into a northern West Bank village on Sunday has been returned to Israeli authorities by the Palestinian liaison office, an official said.

Ghassan Daghlas, a Palestinian Authority official who monitors settlement activities in the northern West Bank, told Ma'an that a settler from the illegal Israeli outpost of Homesh "accidentally" walked into the the village of Burqa west of Nablus.

The settler "begged and cried" as he was beaten up by dozens of school children, before locals intervened and took him to the Palestinian liaison office, Daghlas said.

Liaison officials then delivered the man to their Israeli counterparts, he said.

Homesh was evacuated by Israeli authorities in 2005, and in September, Israel's military said that land confiscated in 1978 to build the settlement would be returned to its Palestinian owners in Burqa.

In recent months, however, armed Jewish settlers have been trickling back to try and reestablish a permanent presence there, locals say.

More than 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements across the West Bank and East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

A natural reaction for the Palestinians who on daily basis wake up to vandalized vehicles and property. Settlers frequently damage Palestinian property and attack civilians. Not to mention cutting trees and burning fields and poisoning animals. I also question that the settler "mistakenly" wandered in the village. Settlements architecture is different than Palestinian architecture , the infrastructure looks and feels different. This settler undoubtedly , wanted to exercize what he wanted to do.

Don't presume it was a mistake.Many outpost juveniles are indoctrinated to intrude &incite violence(with weps)by RAVSHATZ adults on Jewish-only ILLEGAL outposts,in order to justify IOF/ShinBet raids! There're ALWAYS IOF reservists there,to monitor/protect RAVSHATZ kids as they beat up COUNTLESS Arab indigenous children!Where were they?? "Begged and cried"? Well,perhaps now he can empathize with the 300 children,in Gaza,murdered in 3wks,among 1,100 more civilians,in Dec/Jan 2008-9.

"The settler "begged and cried" as he was beaten up by dozens of school children..." This is horrific and I blame Israel and its crazed Jewish settlers for teaching Palestinian children to hate them. These Jewish settlers go around getting into everyone's face hurting Palestinians and destroying Palestinian property. How sad to see Palestinian children reacting this way to these freaking Jewish foreigners who want to take their future away. Israel is solely responsible for this human mess.

-1- "Children" did these beatings, and if Palestinian children already hate at this young age, then they are likely to progress into terrorism, so - Palestine will have to wait at least one more generation before statehood will even be possible !! -3- Adults may learn to hate from soldiers, but the Children are taught to hate by their parents, and this teaching hatred is still augmented is Palestinian schools, despite the PLO's promises to end incitement & change school texts !!

A lone "settler" wandering into a Palestinian village. Given the terror "settlers" have caused Palestinian people for generations, he sure was taking his chances. Why was the "settler" all alone in such a situation. What was his age and mental state?
