Settlers vow revenge over Jerusalem massacre

As violence spirals and calls for peace talks grow, extremists say they will build a new West Bank settlement for each of the eight students killed

Palestinian: Settlement expansion ‘a stick in the wheels’ of peace

JERUSALEM (CNN) — A Palestinian official said Sunday that Israel’s plan to expand settlements in the West Bank was “like putting a stick in the wheels of the peace process.”

Israeli settlers attack Palestinian lawmaker near Nablus

Israeli settlers attacked Siham Thabit, a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council (PLC), on Friday while she was driving near the West Bank city of Nablus.

Settlers assaulted the car when it passed the Yizhar settlement, smashing the windshield. Thabit was taken to a hospital in Nablus.

Student killer was ‘good boy with a future’

“He wasn’t crazy, he was just one of us, a normal young guy who said he was heading out and said goodbye to his family on Thursday night,” ‘Mohammed’, a cousin of Abu Dhaim’s said.

“The first thing they heard was when they started getting calls from the media close to midnight on Thursday, saying their son was the gunman, then the Israeli police turned up and took away nine members of the family, even his father.”

While I do not agree with all said in this Blog, I still recommend it as a good source for a basic overview… Informed Comment

That aside – when will it end? When will Israel and Palestine realize that the ongoing spiral of violence, provocations and insults do not serve the individual Peoples?

Hamas and Hezbollah only serve themselves, and Israel is playing hide and seek with the Extremists on both sides. Politicking by both parties, at the expense of the Peoples they claim to represent.

I don’t f**king care about the 1967 borders. Why? Because they are a violation of International Laws. I don’t f**king care about splitting Jerusalem in two. If they can’t agree to share and respect each other’s holy places, then neither of them should have an inch. I care about the Peoples. Yes, the settlers too, and the terrorists – what are they except mirror images of each other? If it weren’t for Extremists on both sides, there would be no war, no violence. There would be Peace and Negotiations.
