Olmert declares jihad on Settlers

Ehud Olmert, the disgraced Israeli PM who is being run out of office on a rail for corruption, has declared that Jews in Judea and Samaria are not entitled to self defense. Despite terrorist attacks by arabs, the Israeli police have declined to act and Olmert has threatened to use military action against Jews who attempt measures of self-preservation.

Arutz Sheva: An Arab terrorist entered Yitzhar's outlying Shalhevet neighborhood early Sabbath morning, set fire to a house that was empty at the time - the family had gone to Rehovot to celebrate a grandmother's 90th birthday - and then stabbed a nine-year-old boy and threw him over a fence 4 meters high.

The boy, who fought back and broke the terrorist's knife, landed on a bush and was only lightly hurt. Afterwards, men of Yitzhar descended into the nearby hostile village of Asira el-Jabaliya, to where the terrorist was seen fleeing, threw rocks at houses and shot into the air.

Olmert condemned the Jewish response, using words such as "taking the law into their own hands," "brutality," and "pogrom." He further accused the Jews of having "used live weapons and wounded Palestinian residents," and said that there had been "no basis to assume... that [the targeted Arab] residents were at all connected, whether directly or indirectly, to the terrorist attack in Yitzhar."

Danny Dayan, Chairman of the Yesha Council of Jewish Communities in Judea and Samaria, said that no evidence had been produced that anyone in the targeted Arab village was wounded by Jewish gunfire. Olmert thus spoke without checking the facts, Dayan implied.

In addition, the spokesman for the town of Yitzhar said that Arabs of the targeted village, Asira el-Jabaliya, had set fire to Yitzhar seven times in the past three months - thus putting the lie to the Prime Minister's claim that there was "no reason to assume that [they] were at all connected" with the terrorist attack.

This helps push the envelope further towards the needed Settler Revolution that we are all waiting for. As we get closer to the breaking point, part of me tingles with anticipation at the thought of Olmert swinging from a noose on the front steps of the Knesset.



  1. I'll gladly supply the rope!

  2. How about you supply the hammer? ;)

  3. Olmert is a disgrace and a traitor. He should be run out of Israel.

  4. Livni is worse, don't worry;)

  5. I am not squeamish per say but hanging Olmert on the end of the rope just doesn't work for me - he still has a neshama. I'd rather him disgraced and outcast with time to realize the errors of his ways - but that's me.
