Aviela ,   Migron, Israel   (06.02.12)
Am I the only one catching that if B'Tzelem has a picture of this (or a similar) scene, it was STAGED?!
2. A knife is a weapon, isn't it?
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (06.02.12)

abdalla   (06.03.12)
FANGS OUT ,   U.S.A.   (06.03.12)
The settlers are protecting their families home and neighbors. Keep it up time to Take out the GARBAGE!
6. Reality
michael Pielet ,   Israel   (06.03.12)
They should have cut his head off.
7. Poor kid
Joe ,   Harae Zimbabwe   (06.03.12)
Poor kid, attacked by Bad Jews while throwing stones to relieve his stress! Israel should pay him to join a gym so he can exercise without being harmed
8. why delegitimize Jews defending their homes
Jorge   (06.03.12)
why satanize them when protecting their families
9. Shabbat activities for Yitzhar Settlers
Haim ,   TA   (06.03.12)
Guess thats their idea of Shabbat Shalom.
10. Good
steve from raleigh   (06.03.12)
Give YESHA Jews shoulder fired missiles.
11. No Jews arrested, again
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (06.03.12)
Palestinians would get life in prison for the same act.
12. As bad as the teenagers acted
Jerome ,   Basalt, Colorado   (06.03.12)
It paled in comparison the way the Arab pallies have have treated Israelis in past situations! Remember the smiling crazy pallie in the widow with blood soaked hands that just kiled and tortured two Israeli soldiers that made a wrong turn.
13. Remember when they used to
ben   (06.03.12)
yell " kill the jew kill the jew" and it would end up with the lynching of an innocent mam. Amazing how times have changed
14. IDF working for arabs, should get paychecks from arabs
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (06.03.12)
not the Israeli government. The IDF takes away weapons so there can be a killing like the Fogels. barak is an alternate word for EVIL, fire him.
15. Shooting of already shot teen by settlers
ibmama2 ,   Imperial Beach, CA   (06.03.12)
I am deeply ashamed and horrified by these actions. This is not any kind of Jewish morality. Such action is ruinous in the international opinion of IsraeI - and for good reason. I will not support any charities that build or nourish settlements ever.
16. Oh, boy, it sure doesn't take long for the IDF...
Jake Stone ,   USA   (06.03.12) respond when a Palestinian is in trouble...but, when it's a Jew...well, you know had that normally goes?
17. All Israeli's Should Be Able To
Defend Themselves and Their Familes 365/ 24-7. If the Police or IDF aren't present when Violence breaks out Israeli's die? If an Israeli is waiting for a bus or train have Been Stabed with knife arab wielding Terrorists. Why were Defencive Weapons Removed Before All evidence collected?
18. Well...
Moshe ,   USA   (06.03.12)
The IDF won't protect the settlers's time they did the job. What do you think happened after the Mandate ended and the Haganah paid back arab terror in kind? All of a sudden Israel is too "civilized" to protect its citizens?
David ,   Haifa, Israel   (06.03.12)
get out of israel. Kahana was RIGHT!
20. @#2. 'Weapon' at 50 meters?
Golden Dome ,   Washington, USA   (06.03.12)
There is no immediate threat to life when a Palestinian with a 'knife' stands across a field from you. However, when the Yitzhar terror cell stands across a field with high power guns it is.
21. The Arab was dangerous. Everyone has the right to protect
Basic human right ,   Israel   (06.03.12)
THEMSELVES. How many Jews have been murdered by Arabs with knives???
22. arabs think everybody reacts as
lynch ,   Israel   (06.03.12)
criminally as they do. I mean after all mr.victim was armed Good they shot him otherwise we dont know what kind of damage it would have caused
23.  Palestinian man shot
Ezra ,   SanDiego   (06.03.12)
I am deeply ashamed and horrified by the actions of the Arab kids. This is not any kind of morality. Such action is ruinous in the international opinion of Arabs - and for good reason. I will not support any Arab charities that build or nourish Palestinian terrorism.
24. # 12 Do you remember bus 300
Ben   (06.03.12)
25. If this was texas he would have been shot and strung up!
Stan ,   Texas   (06.03.12)
26. #15, Most Israelis ashamed also, apart from the Morons
Andi ,   Israel   (06.03.12)
on this talkback like #6. Protecting your families is OK. Shooting at someone from a distance armed with only a knife is not. And even f there was some doubt about if he was armed or not, beating him up when already injured and tied up is what we read about in Syria not in Israel. Disgusting. May the army arrest them and throw them in jail.
27. #24 Ben yes I do remember
Jerome ,   Basalt, Colorado   (06.03.12)
4 terrorist took over bus with pregnant woman and innocent children, 2 terrorist killed when I.D.F. stormed bus and the terrorist also responsible for 19 year Israeli girls death. Arabs kill innocents and the Jews killed murders! Whats your point?
28. #27 his point
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (06.03.12)
The Arab terrorist torched the Jews' field. When the Jews came to stop the blaze, the terrorist attacked them with a knife, planning to murder someone, seize his gun, and than kill many more. The IDF, led by Leftist generals , did nothing until a Jew shot and wounded the terrorist. The IDF then stepped in and arrested the Jew. What #24 Ben is saying is that human beings have the right to self defense. Line 300, Goldstone, Ben and the Yizhar pogrom prove that unlike humans, Jews do not have the right of self-defense.
29. The Jews were protecting their fields?
I Love Fanatics ,   Ohio, USA   (06.03.12)
So the Jews from Yitzhar were protecting their fields? Find “Yitzhar” and “Orif (aka Urif)” on Google Earth. And look closely - you can clearly see the olive grove that was started on fire. You’ll find the orchard is adjacent to the village of Orin and nearly a half-mile from the settlement of Yitzhar. That’s right, the settlement of Yitzhar. Where last November, the Education Ministry shut down this settlements high school and yeshiva because of their continued and ongoing involvement in violence against the Palestinians AND security forces. Indeed, several members of this settlement are suspected of “price-tag” attacks, not to mention their involvement in the burning of the Yasouf mosque. And now we are left with a question: Why would the settlers would run a half mile to put out a fire - in a orchard that not even theirs? Did they bring along a fire hose, extinguishers and wet blankets? Well, no. A more believable scenario is this: A well known and documented violent group from the settlement of Yitzhar set out one morning to torch the Palestinian’s olive grove. And when the Palestinians responded – they shot one, handcuffed and beat him. Further, when Security forces arrived - the settlers responded by stoning them too – wounding one Border Guard. Therefore, first, the Jews from Yttzhar were not protecting their grove and second, it is highly possible that the knife may have been planted.
30. #28 & #29
Jerome ,   Basalt, Colorado   (06.03.12)
1984, four armed Arab terrorists from the Gaza Strip reached Ashdod where they boarded, as paying passengers, an Egged Bus No. 300 en route from Tel Aviv to Ashkelon. The Terrorists hijackers demanded the release of 30 prisoners. I love fanatics that welcome truth and don't hate and blame Israel and Jews everything bad in their pathetic lives.
