Israeli settlers assault Palestinian farmer near NablusMa`an - Israeli settlers assaulted a Palestinian farmer, while he was harvesting olives, on Monday, in Deir al-Hatab village, east of the northern occupied West Bank district of Nablus. Abed al-Karim Hussein, head of the Deir al-Hatab village council, told Ma`an that a group of Israeli settlers from the illegal Israeli settlement of Elon Moreh assaulted a Palestinian farmer by repeatedly beating him. The farmer was identified as Amjad Khaled Odeh, 45, a resident from the Deir al-Hatab village. Hussein confirmed that Odeh was assaulted while harvesting olives in his land, that is adjacent to the Elon Moreh settlement, east of the village. Odeh suffered various bruises all over his body. The Israeli human rights group B`Tselem reported that "settler violence and vandalism takes place with full backing by the Israeli authorities. Sometimes soldiers take part in the assault; at other times, they stand idly by. The police makes no substantial effort to investigate the incidents, nor takes measures to prevent them or stop them in real time." [bz]16/10/2018

We told ourselves we weren`t settlers. We were something differentOfer Matan - +972 - "They’ve been living in the city for 50 years, but they are still Haifa born and bred. They refer to the Jerusalemites as “them,” and laugh at the fact that they use plastic bags as a purse while running errands. Everyone who is like my parents has long moved to the suburbs of Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, only visiting the city for a little taste of culture. But my parents prefer Freij’s supermarket in Shuafat over the big malls, and for the past two years have been taking Arabic lessons. This is exactly why the Left is hypocritical, says my mother, people who love Arabs but are afraid to speak with them." - id 3/10/2018

B`Tselem to EU: Clarify to Israel demolition of Khan al-Ahmar will have consequences Hagai El-Ad - B’Tselem - Israel is trampling the shared values that are at the core of its relationship with the EU. The European Union must act urgently to prevent the destruction of the Khan al-Ahmar community, after Israel’s High Court gave the demolition plan the go-ahead. According to the ruling, the state may demolish all the structures in the community, including a school attended by some 180 children. Back in July, the EU`s Federica Mogherini warned Israel that destroying this community would have serious consequences. Now, we have reached the juncture where it appears that these serious consequences must be spelled out, if the EU is to credibly back its own positions. [ak] 11/9/2018

Report: Israel Using Judicial System to Facilitate Settlement ProjectIMEMC - "The central court in Jerusalem’s decision came to ground the settlement outposts of “Mitzpe Kramim”, to reveal once again the reality of the political maneuvers that Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu stands behind, to gradually legitimize settlement outposts, recalling the deliberations conducted by the Israeli Supreme Court, several years ago, that revealed the truth of the leadership position which, by all means, intends to plunder Palestinian land. These deliberations have repeatedly confirmed that this is a settlers’ government." - id5/9/2018

Israeli court drops mask on support of occupation Akiva Eldar - Al-Monitor - “A strategically important decision” was how Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked categorized the Aug. 28 decision by Jerusalem District Court Judge Arnon Darel. The court barred the Israel Defense Forces from evacuating several homes at the West Bank settlement of Mitzpe Kramim, even though these houses were built on private Palestinian lands, thus legalizing the outpost. Darel ruled that under Israeli law, even legally questionable transactions could be valid if conducted in "good faith," accepting the argument by the settlers and the state that when the land was allocated to build Mitzpe Kramim in the late 1990s, neither of them was aware that it was private. “Working together intensively we have wrought a change in the state’s policy,” Shaked said, patting herself on the back and praising Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit for overturning his predecessor’s stand on the issue.-rh 5/9/2018
