Security police arrested a 16-year-old boy in Yitzhar on Wednesday for throwing rocks at police during the morning, one day after 50 young people went on a rampage, clashed with Border Police and ransacked a post manned by Israeli army reservists.

Leaders across the political spectrum have called for a stop to the violence by extreme settlers, and they want prompt and harsh action taken against troublemakers. Knesset Member Elazar Stern, one of six MKS in Tzipi Livni’s HaTnuah party, said that security forces should treat Yitzhar like any other area that hosts terrorists.

Almost of Yitzhar’s 220 families are firmly against the violence and are frustrated that no one has been able to stop the “price tag” vandalism, a spokeswoman for the Shomron Regional Council told The Jewish Press Tuesday.

President Shimon Peres, who is visiting China said in a statement,  “Since the creation of the State of Israel, the IDF has been the most valuable thing to the Israeli people and we must not let a group of punks harm it.

Deputy Defense Minister Danny Danon told Israel Radio that violence by extremist settlers hurts the movement for a strong Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria.

    When a wife gets beaten and abused enough , do not be surprised if she strikes back.

  4. Chaiya Eitan says:

    Who are their parents??? These hooligans should be prosecuted.

  5. Uzi Kattan says:

    The police sure act fast to arrest Jews after they destroyed Jewish homes. Too bad they don't have the same urgency when Arabs attack Jews.
    The only reason they are coming down hard is that Jews of Yehuda and Shomron are fed up with government persecution and they want to deter a Jewish Spring by Jews who had enough of Netanyahu's Bolshevik mistreatment .

  6. Uzi Kattan says:

    Prosecuted? Why don't they go after the Arabs with the same urgency?

  7. Chaiya Eitan says:

    I agree with you on that. It's like running a gauntlet when drivers are on the roads.
