Radical Settlers Take On Israel

E-mail Print PDF

A pipe bomb that exploded late on Wednesday night outside the Jerusalem home of Zeev Sternhell, a Hebrew University professor, left him lightly wounded and created only a minor stir in a nation that routinely experiences violence on a much larger scale.

But Mr. Sternhell was noted for his impassioned critiques of Jewish settlements in the West Bank, once suggesting that Palestinians “would be wise to concentrate their struggle against the settlements.” And the authorities found fliers near his home offering nearly $300,000 to anyone who kills a member of Peace Now, a left-wing Israeli advocacy group, leading them to suspect that militant Israeli settlers or their supporters were behind the attack.


If so, the bombing may be the latest sign that elements of Israel’s settler movement are resorting to extremist tactics to protect their homes in the occupied West Bank against not only Palestinians, but also Jews who some settlers argue are betraying them. Radical settlers say they are determined to show that their settlements and outposts cannot be dismantled, either by law or by force. 

TVNL Comment: The times calls Israelis that bomb people and offer rewards for killing members of peace groups "radical settlers, and they describe their tactics as simply "extremist". But an Iraqi who kills a foreign (American) soldier that invaded their nation and killed tens of thousands of people including women and children, "terrorists". Had this article been about any people other than Jews or Israelis, the Times would have used the term "terrorists" to describe them.
