Interesting. I wonder in which country there are the most attacks (including shootings, beatings) against Palestinians?

Suzanna, that's probably Jordan. remember they killed 10,000 - 20,000 Palestinians in the space of one month back in the 70's. They then expelled several thousand more. Kuwait also expelled around 200,000 after they backed Saddam in the early 90's.
The difference of course, which you ignore, is that Jews are targeted because they are Jews. Palestinian terror groups alone are targeted, and your moral equivalence between antisemitic attacks against Jews in the UK and the targeting of Palestinian terrorists is typical.

Somebody should tell the sock puppet that a blog is more than a link and that it should think for itself...
Oh, they have...

Amber don't worry Millis refuses to engage me directly because that would break his own declared boycott of settlements and settlers. However by not engaging me he is tacitly accepting that I am what I say am and proud to be - a settler.

Oops, another mistake. The one who claims to be something he isn't obviously forgot this time that settlers would never refer to themselves as settlers. They call themselves residents of whatever part of the occupied territories they think they live in - settler has a temporary feel about it.
But if it is reading, I don't engage people who hide behind pseudos - no real name, no comeback. It's a totally cowardly thing to do. So not only is is quack, quack, it's cluck, cluck, too. And that's really fowl. I wonder what its poultry excuse will be now.

We are all Settlers!
So, we unplug ourselves for Shabbat and then after Havdala we realize that while we were happily enjoying ourselves with our children and grandchildren in Mitzpe Ramon a family was murdered in their beds in Itamar a settlement in the Shomron.
This morning, the first person I spoke to asked me how my Shabbat was.
I replied that Shabbat was lovely, until it ended and we heard the news.
"Did you know them?"
They were a couple in their mid-30's with six kids, none of them yet even in their teens, living in an isolated settlement with a fence around it keeping Shabbat, teaching Torah and building Eretz Israel.
Do I know them?

We are all Settlers and most of us are Zionists
Recently several far left groups have been campaigning under the slogan “Settlers aren’t Zionists”. The reason for this provocative and insulting tactic is to sway the average Israeli away and against a passionate, dedicated, and giving community. New clarifications by the Obama administration puts this population at numbers of over 650,000 people, which is over ten percent of the population!
How bittersweet, that on one hand we are growing nicely and thriving as a people, yet at the same time pressure from our progressive liberals both here and in America is causing major damage in the eyes of the international court of public opinion.
There is no doubt that boycotts, divestments, sanctions, and outright military confrontation are on the way. How tragic that the real bad guys who have been spilling our blood for over a hundred years, well before any of the green line settlements even existed, are shown to be the victims of all this. How can we all collectively forget that the Arabs established the PLO terrorist group prior to the Six Day War in 1964 and thirty five years before that, without any provocation, butchered hundreds of innocent Jews in 1929. Lets also not forget all our innocent Jewish brothers and sisters who have been stabbed, shot at, and blown up all those years in between and after.
Once upon a time the very word “Settler” evoked bravery, sacrifice, and vision. Some of the early “settlements” included Petach Tikva (The opening of hope) and Rishon Letzion (The first for Zion). Today, these places are built up cities and have all kinds of people living there including some post Zionist anti settlers. Somehow it has been decided that these places are viewed by the enemy as kosher and that they are just after the land being occupied by the dirty thieving “settlers” known to the world as the West Bank.
To truly believe this in 2010, one needs to be either ignorant, delusional, or a blatant anti-Semite. You see, our enemies are so bold in their ambitions that they are not interested in keeping their plans a secret. Time and time again their leadership is quoted as saying that any peace agreement would only be a temporary ruse since their long term plan is to reclaim all the land from the Jordan to the Mediterranean. Not that long ago, an Arab MK (who by the way is a democratically elected shekel earner) spoke about liberating the land where Tel Aviv University now stands, known as the pre-1948 village of Sheik Munis.
This is very uncomfortable and frustrating information for our great peace promoters. One would think it would at least cause most of them if not all of them to re-shift and reconsider their positions. Fear not of course, because instead of confronting the real enemy who has blood on their hands, it is instead our fellow Jews who are the ones being castigated and vilified.
We need to combat this lie and we will combat this lie. We need to work against the so called protectors of Zionism who have re-branded it as “Palestinianism”. We need to make it clear to our fellow Jews that in the end, we will either have sovereignty over them or they won’t stop until they have complete sovereignty over us. Let’s choose life and G-d’s people inside the Land of Israel.

Not entirely sure what the wannabe hopes to achieve by posting bloggers who want to throw back at us the correct terminology to describe these temporary squatters. But what ever turns it on. Its cover was blown long ago when the jc started deleting posts saying the wannabe wasnt what it said it was.
