    For first time, US State Department defines settler violence as terrorism
    Haaretz 18 Aug -- In annual report on terrorism in foreign countries, U.S. government report defines so-called 'price-tag' attacks against Palestinians in the West Bank as acts of terror ... During 2011, the report says, ten mosques in the West Bank and in Jerusalem were set on fire – a dramatic increase compared to past years, following "six such incidents in 2010 and one in 2009." The report also states that Israeli authorities believe that the attacks were "perpetrated by settlers." Under the title "2011 Terrorist Incidents," the report describes the main terrorist attacks carried out in the West Bank in the Gaza Strip in that year. Alongside rocket attacks from Gaza, the report mentions seven incidents, three of which were considered "price-tag" attacks - the spraying of hate graffiti on Muslim graves at the Mamilla Cemetery in Jerusalem, the burning of a Jerusalem mosque and the vandalizing of a mosque in the West Bank village of Burqa.

    Palestinians hold vigil for victims of taxi attack
    JPost 19 Aug -- The Jayada family was on the way to the supermarket to shop for the holiday meal when their car was attacked and burst into flames ... The car went up in flames and then flipped over. Two of the victims remain in intensive care, including Ayman Jayada, who is in a coma, Jamila, who is in serious condition, and Hassan, who is communicative but drowsy from the drugs used to ease the pain of the burns over most of his body.Another brother, Haitham, shuttling between his family members in different wards trailed by two dozen worried relatives, described the shock when they received the phone call. The brothers, from a family of 10 children in Nahalin, speak Hebrew well and have never been jailed or had run-ins with Israeli authorities, according to Haitham Jayada, 30. "It was the most shocking thing I've ever seen. I walked into Ayman's room and walked out again because I didn't realize it was him. You can't recognize him because his face is burned away. We haven't even let his four kids in to see him, because no child should see his father like that," he said. Half of the village of Nahalin is here at the hospital, he said. There is no ‘Id al-Fitr in Nahalin this year because they are all here, keeping a vigil by their family members' sides ... "This isn't the first time -- the settlers nearby have thrown Molotov cocktails at us before, and rocks as well," he said.

    Terrorism? I don't know. These Palestinians are only arabs, after all. God put them there so there would be targets for Israeli hunters. If the arabs would just all move to Jordan, they wouldn't have any problems. The end of the mideast conflict will surely only come about when Israelis have settled the entire West Bank. The settlers are always claiming that they are only doing what god told them to. Now who's to contradict a god? And these Arabs are getting off a lot easier than the Midianite children that god had killed, or the 32,000 virgins god ordered spared for prostitution, or the 32 virgins god had set aside for his own use.
