BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- Jewish settlers on Sunday hung posters displaying anti-Arab slogans on the main road between Hebron and Jerusalem, local officials said.

The mayor of al-Khader, near Bethlehem, Ramzi Salah told Ma'an that some of the slogans read: "This is the land of our fathers and grandfathers," and "This is the land of Israel."

The posters were displayed near settlements along route 60 between Hebron and Jerusalem, as well as near the village of Jaba and in the East Jerusalem towns of Eizariya and Abu Dis, Salah added.

Member of the local anti-wall committee in al-Khader Ahmad Salah told Ma'an that some of the posters along route 60 read "We will slaughter Arabs." Posters were also displayed on the fence surrounding Efrat settlement south of Bethlehem, he added.

In a separate incident, settlers in Hebron attempted to raid Palestinian neighborhoods on Sunday evening. Local sources told Ma'an that armed settlers tried to attack Palestinian residents near Kiryat Arba but Israeli forces intervened to prevent the attack.

There has been a surge in settler attacks against Palestinians over the last month.

On Sunday, dozens of Israeli settlers uprooted over 400 Palestinian-owned olive trees near Nablus in the northern West Bank, a Palestinian Authority official said.

On Friday, Israeli forces killed a Palestinian man, Issam Kamal Odeh, 33, during clashes sparked by settlers who entered Qusra, near Nablus.

In September, settlers in Nablus have vandalized two mosques and an Israeli army base, uprooted olive trees and set fire to cars.

Some 500,000 Jewish settlers live in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. There are about 2.5 million Palestinians in the same territory.

All settlements are considered illegal under international law.

To matt #3 'How are these settler any differrent from the arab counterparts who have been firing rockets and mortars indiscriminatly for the last 30 years??' That's a bit like asking how it's any different if you dip into my bank account than when I dip into my bank account.

Maan "forgets" to comment on the recent murder of the Israeli Jew Palmer & his child while driving, a rock thrown through his windshield by passengers in an oncoming Palestinian vehicle. Wwhat kind of lopsided news coverage is that? Well, it's propaganda, not news but the fools who believe every story which comes from these journalists' mouths (I use the term "journalist" warily) love to believe each morsel, the Julie's, Carlos's & Lukas's of this world. It conveniently backs up their hatreds.

Not only are they criminal settlers, you would think they would want to make an effort to be accepted peacefully but no, they have the audacity to want to kill us? Well ok then so be it, you shall be DEPORTED to whichever hell hole you came from. You have no one to blame other than your racist Israeli government and your bible too which you seem to think is a real estate deed! Fools

Again, the usual whine whine when the never ending, escalating racist squatter violence and vandalism are covered by Maan - YES #7, Maan HAS covered the car accident you refer to, and also covered what the Israeli police which investigated the incident had to say on the matter. Stop posting lies.

Stop whingeing, it's been covered on this site, and BTW - the stone could just as easily have been thrown by a squatter, aided by his mates from France. There was plenty of stone-throwing from both sides at the time. Did you read the article on the Palestinian man who was injured after crashing his car when squatters threw stones at him? Any comment on that?

"Settlers HANGING anti-Arab POSTERS on West Bank roads",
where their familiy members have been murdered, by rocks
thrown from on-coming cars, IS TOTALLY DIFFERENT FROM
Arabs THROWING ROCKS, and FIRING ROCKETS at civilians !!!

One is a very MODERATE RESPONSE TO ARABS MURDERING JEWS,
and the other is terror and murder !!
- If you can't see that your either "blind", or an idiot.

I'd really love to see some photos of this, because a lot of Americans won't believe otherwise.
