If the Jews had attacked the Arabs, the headline would have said so, instead of simply starting there was a “clash.”
If the Jews really attacked the Arabs, where is the video? Perhaps the “foreign solidarity activists,” meaning anarchists from the International Solidarity Movement and other anti-Israel groups, have not had time to edit the footage and post it.
Mitzpeh Yair was founded by people from Susiya, located across the highway and down the road half a mile, in memory of Yair Har Sinai who was killed by Arab murderers.
The terrorist attack was a classic case of the police and the IDF blindfolding themselves to clear evidence who the attackers were. They were free for five years until the Arab who planned the attack was convicted, finally arrested and convicted six years ago.
The Israeli government has a “hasbara” program, a crybaby exercise to justify Israel’s existence.
It does not counter propaganda except for occasional announcements of what everyone except U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry knows – that the Palestinian Authority incites violence.
The government does not counter propaganda, such as this remarkable comment on Wikipedia under the heading “Susya” meaning Susiya.
It states, “In 2001, Yair Har-Sinai was killed in a brawl with local Palestinians. A Palestinian, Jihad Najar, was convicted of murder and received a sentence of life imprisonment.”
A brawl? Yair Har Sinai, who in principle never carried a weapon, was grazing his sheep in the afternoon and never returned home. His body was found several hours later. He was shot dead. That is what someone calls a “brawl.”
That someone is obviously part of the well-oiled anti-Israel movement, which has stretched its tentacles deep into university campuses and European governments.
It lives on lies, such as Palestinian Authority claims that Jews have no connection with the Temple Mount, the claim that Rachel’s Tomb was a Muslim site and that the forefather actually bound Ishmael, not Yitzchak.
And that Jews attacked Arabs Monday morning.
The biggest problem with the lies is that the foreign media believe them and report them as facts to the readers because virtually no one corrects them.Tzvi Ben-Gedalyahu
