Israelis promoting peace with the Palestinian Authority on Thursday got a taste of the medicine that Jews in Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem bitterly swallow every day – rock throwing.
The Israelis were meeting with Arabs in a hotel in Ramallah when approximately 100 angry Palestinian Authority leftists threw rocks at the building.
A source in Ramallah told Israel radio that the PA police were maintaining order and guarding the hotel so that both sides could meet peacefully without interference by the war outside.
On Tuesday, Palestinians beat and detained around a dozen settlers from Esh Kodesh who had entered Qusra village south of Shchem, then released them after negotiating with Israeli soldiers.
Also on Tuesday, a tour of some 100 Israeli diplomats looking to study the plight of the Bedouins in the settlements near Be’er Sheva in the Negev, were attacked with stones by the locals. No one was hurt, but one bus was taken out of commission.
