IDF Rescues Jews from Arab Village during Clash

Palestinian Authority Arabs beat a group of Jews for two hours on Tuesday before the IDF arrived at a PA village to rescue them following violent clashes between both sides.

A few facts in the clash are clear. Border Police arrived at the Esh Kodesh outpost in Samaria to uproot an olive grove, and a stone-throwing fight developed between Jews and Arabs, who have been at constant war with the Esh Kodesh residents in recent years.

It also is known that the IDF rescued the Jews from a house under construction at the Arab village of Ousra.

The Arabs said they chased after the Jews, who allegedly throw rocks at Arab farmers and fled to the unfinished Arab house, where they were overpowered by the villagers.

One Arab admitted to Reuters that Arabs savagely beat 15 Jews with fists and sticks, some of them bleeding profusely, until the IDF arrived to rescue them from the attackers.

A resident of Esh Kodesh said they fled from the Arab rock throwers, but Ousra villagers accused the Jews of a “price tag” attack following the Border Police action. They gave no details of the alleged attack.

The IDF told The Jewish Press, “The Border Police carried out an order at Esh Kodesh, and Jews and Arabs started throwing rocks at each other. There were some injuries.”

It did not confirm or deny the rescue operation and had no knowledge of a “price tag” attack.

Israel radio interviewed one of the Esh Kodesh victims, who said a group of Jew were walking on a road when an Arab mob attacked them with rocks. The Jews then ran away to the unfinished house and called the IDF. Before the soldiers arrived, the Jews were beaten, one of them unconscious.

It is clear that land was the spark that set off the clash.

The Palestinian Authority claims all of the land in Judea and Samaria, especially that in “outposts” that have not been approved by the Defense Ministry.

The Obama administration considers Jews in all of Judea and Samaria and most of Jerusalem as “illegitimate,” regardless of whether they live on an outpost or in the Ramot or Gilo neighborhoods of Jerusalem. The result of bloated Arab expectations and an army policy of “let’s not disturb the peace process” has been the recent escalation of terror and violence, especially over land.

On Monday, Arabs clashed with Jews who were farming their land on the Mitzpeh Yair outpost in the southern Hebron Hills. Three of the Jews were hospitalized after having been beaten by the Arabs.

  3. I am against efforts to make peace that involve Israel in such a way that demands that they give up ANY of their land. I know it sounds weary to many people that I state that God brought Israel back into this land, BUT that is EXACTLY what God has done! When the Arab nations around Israel attacked; God continued to extend Israel’s borders. Israel even regained Jerusalem and the Temple mount! These events/wars have been an obvious fulfillment of God’s promise to bring Israel back into his land in the end times. He even specified that the nation would be born in ONE day. That day was May 14, 1948. God’s word teaches us that in the end times when Israel is brought back, that they would never be fully removed again. To make a so called peace deal which involves giving away the land that God promised Israel is a huge sin. I believe that the rapture/departure of the Christian church is to take place very soon and that an evil peace deal will be made for 7/360 day years, between Israel, the Arabs and a person who will head the one world government. That man will be the anti-Christ. I wrote a book in 2012 that discusses some of the prophecies written about in the Bible. It’s a short read of 6 or 7 pages and it’s totally free. I hope you will have a look: http://www.booksie.com/religion_and_spirituality/book/richard_b_barnes/after-the-rapture-whats-next

  4. Richard Barnes, please lose the rapture doctrine. Master Yahweh will descend to the same place He ascended from, which is the Mount of Olives. He didn’t take Noach out of this world, but had Noach prepare an ark for the animals and his family.

  5. The Arabs act like mad dogs and deserve the treatment doled out to such animals; their conduct is anti human as is the whole notion of 'islam' with its "submission" and the bowing and scraping to mecca every day…they could have lived in peace…but no, their 'holy' books tell them to do murder and mayhem to all that they find to be 'nonbelievers' of whatever stripe! With the cowardly Kerry and a disgraceful POTUS Obama time is on our side because they work under the illusion that because Obama is a muslim, he will completely back their hand, the truth he will do little or nothing for them. "They must go."

  6. Mark L. Shane says:

    the IDF tells the arabs: please release our Jews afteralll- this is the Jewish State' and the arabs roll over in laughter saying"see, they do understand our arab humor'

  7. Yechiel Baum says:

    Shame. IDF is supposed to DEFEND JEWS and not do ab ASS and livini's dirty work. Until this stops, Jews should stop donating to the IDF fund.

  8. The GOD of the UNIVERSE will have HIS WAY with Israel beyond the lies, delusions and politics and HIS WAY is coming down very fast and soon. GOD wins…………….like it or not.
