A Jewish villager (in the tzitzis) facing a stone hurling Arab outside Ofra, near the village of Deir Jarir, Friday, May 3, 2013.
As the IDF has been reluctant to arrest and punish Arabs who have been routinely terrorizing Jewish motorists with rocks and firebombs—as well as a stabbing murder a week ago—Jewish civilians have taken up the job of showing Arabs their actions had consequences.
Note that the Jew in the picture must mask his identity lest he be picked up by security forces. The Arab has no such worries.
