If I could, I'd send a modest bouquet of flowers as a gesture of
thanks for the work of the rioters - the ones who infiltrated the
Ephraim Brigade base in the West Bank last week. They achieved, at least
for a moment, what others had failed to do: stir Israeli public opinion
and maybe even the army and government against the West Bank settlers.
Good morning, Israel. You've woken up? Years
of rioting against Palestinians, uprooting of trees, vandalism, arson,
destruction, dispossession, theft, rocks and axes didn't cause a ripple
here. But one rock to the head of a deputy brigade commander, Lt. Col.
Tzur Harpaz, made all the difference.
An all-out riot. Jewish terrorism. There are militias in the West Bank,
settler-terrorists in a no-man's-land. And all this due to a rock that
drew a few drops of sacred Jewish blood.
