A picture the Odious Otway would prefer you did not see

Violent demonstrators caught in the act - http://www.ynetnews.com/PicServer2/24012010/2382435/JER04_wa.jpg

Obviously the Odious Otway would not want you to see what is actually happening on the other side of the demonstration so all you see are the "peaceful" demonstrators unfortunately for him there were photos of where the real action takes place. The police also have arrested one of the main ringleaders of these "peaceful" protests which are anything but peaceful - but this is par for the Odious Otway course.

I am not sure who this Jose person is you keep confusing me with but it shows how utterly intellectually bankrupt you are that you post propagandist videos and try to make believe they are somehow reliable.

This from Ynet in December 2010 -
Almost a year has past since the confrontation between Neveh Tzuf settlers and their Palestinian neighbors in the West Bank village of Nabi Salah erupted over usage of local spring water in the Ramallah area.
This might be the reason why after a grueling few months of incisive brawls, the Nabi Salah protests have earned the dubious title of being the toughest and most violent currently taking place in the West Bank. Ynet reporters joined demonstrators on Friday to experience this first hand. [Note Ynet joined the "peaceful" demonstrators not the IDF]
Lieutenant-Colonel Shahar Shitrit is the one in charge of dispersing these demonstrations every week, in an attempt to reduce the number of injuries. He has instructed his soldiers to prefer the use of tear gas against protesters and to try and avoid using rubber bullets.
If there is no other choice, he said, rubber bullets are put to use to ensure a direct hit of the stone throwers and as a mean to not harm those around them. Despite these honest and great attempts, the harsh reality in the field makes things more difficult.
11:30 am - Just before noon dozens gather at the only mosque in Nabi Salah for Friday prayers. When prayer time is over, they exit the mosque and with the support of Israeli and international activists, they begin their protest march against Border Guard and IDF forces, who have prepared themselves ahead of time for this violent ritual.
Routinely, the demonstration quickly turns into a stone throwing event, causing protesters to clash with security forces – an event which usually ends only at night. The soldiers and guards enter the villages, wandering around the streets using tear gas, and sometimes stun grenades and rubber bullets, to defend themselves against stone throwers.
Nabi Salah becomes one giant war zone, filling residents' homes, rooms and backyards with tear gas. Wandering grenades sometimes break through house windows and explode inside, making it difficult for residents to secure a sheltered area. It does not matter whether the stone thrower is masked, a three-year-old or someone who is not involved in the brawl – everyone, eventually, breaths in the tear gas.
This situation in Nabi Salah is not convenient for either side. No one in the IDF wishes to harm innocent citizens, but they have not yet found a way to fight the protestors without harming non-participating residents.
