GOOD THING THEY DIDN'T HAVE DOVES

‘Peaceful’ Olive Pickers Stoning Jews on Shabbat

Ah, those peaceful olive pickers and the Things they do with rocks….

On Saturday, at noon, local Jews out on a walk at the Aner springs west of the village of Neria in Samaria were attacked by dozens of Arabs throwing rocks, Tazpit reported. The official reason for the Arabs to be in the area was the olive harvest. What can be more peaceful than the olive harvest? And yet, despite the peaceful properties assigned to the olive, despite all those olive branches everywhere – those Arab olive pickers put down the olives and picked up the rocks.

We Jews sometimes would do that to people, get in them the urge to throw things at us.

IDF soldiers from the Duchifat Battalion of the Kfir Brigade were sent to control the situation. During the search for the stone throwers, one Arab tried to run over a soldier with his vehicle.

The sporting Arab was kept by police for questioning and later released.

Local resident told Tazpit that this is not the first incident where Jews on a harmless walk are attacked near the Aner springs. They say two months ago some Arabs threw broken glass pieces into the spring pools so Jewish bathers get cuts while in the water.

Here’s an image of the local Jews when they’re not being attacked by violent local Arabs at the Aner springs.

I believe this is a metaphor for the Zionist endeavor here since the mid 1800s. This is what we look like when no one attacks us.

  1. Ron Kall says:

    arabs are only doing what they have been taught to do since their birth! And some how all they hatred will go away when Israel gives them everything they demand! Fantasy 101!

  2. To teach hatred is to welcome it into your own home.
    That is exactly what so many of the Arabs seem to be encouraging and foster their own future regret.
    What amazes me is that these same peoples grand-parents welcomed those who would use them in the killing of the Jews, the Nazi's, and never learned a lesson from that evil.

  3. Anonymous says:

    We should be surprised they do this to Jews? They do it to each other. They blow up each others' mosques because said mosque belongs the "wrong" kind of Muslims.

  4. Thank you for publishing this article.

    I think it is the first time I am reading an article about violence against Jews by Arabs.

    I have read many articles about violence against Arabs by Jews.

    The news media is not even handed in reporting on this conflict.

    I hope the Israeli authorities will be able to continue to curtail all illegal violence.

  5. Those darn cotton-picking olive pickers and the Left that loves them. Too bad olives don't explode.
