The New Intifada

Mobius at Jewschool comments on the recent events in Hebron.

They have donned yellow stars and given soldiers the Nazi salute. They have declared the State of Israel an illegal entity in the back pocket of the U.S. government. They have assaulted soldiers and attacked neighboring ethnic groups. They have most recently been placed under military curfew. Their gripe is their entitlement to the complete and total land of Palestine, from the river to the sea, as they have determined it in their fundamentalist interpretations of religious scripture.

These are not Palestinians, no. These are Jews. Jews resisting their eviction from Palestinian shops on formerly Jewish land which they have been occupying illegally.
He also comments on this incident, involving hundreds of ultra-Orthodox Jews hurling stones at Police because new residents are 'not religious enough'. You get the feeling if Muslims were rioting about the faith of their neighbours it would merit a mention on LGF.
