NABLUS (Ma’an) -- Israeli settlers shot and injured two Palestinians in the village of Qusra south of Nablus on Saturday in the northern West Bank, a Ma'an correspondent said.

Hilmi Abdul Azizi from Qusra was injured in the stomach, and Khalid Nafed was injured in the foot, after settlers attacked people's houses in the village, the reporter said.

Seven other Palestinians were hurt by tear gas and rubber-coated bullets.

Abdel Majid Hassan, a resident of Qusra village, said the trouble broke out when a group of settlers broke into his home, where he lives with his wife.

"About six or seven settlers came into our house and told us to go into another room," Hassan, 62, said. "After about 10 minutes, residents came to help and the settlers left the house. When the army arrived, settlers began to shoot and throw stones."

An Israeli military spokeswoman said about 25 settlers and 150 Palestinians were throwing stones at each other near the village. "Security forces are responding with riot dispersal means," she said.

A military source, speaking on condition of anonymity, confirmed that settlers had opened fire. A Palestinian ambulance driver called to the village said several Palestinians had been taken to hospital to be treated for tear gas inhalation.

The term "settlers"when referring to these radical-Jewish-Zionist-racist-NATIONALIST-Absolutist-bigotted MORONS.is synonymous with "Brown Shirts"in Nazi Germany,when they harassed,molested,attacked,injured,insulted,humiliated GERMANY JEWISH men,women,children&attacked/burnt their Synagogues/shops.And we all know how that EVIL played out.Who'd have thought it'd migrate to replay on beautiful PALESTINE & its innocent Arab VICTIMS.SHAME ON ALL Jews who ignore this rebirth of EVIL...by Nazi Zionism!

Please translate the Arabic version of this article and post it to the english readers. Much more information and details about the agressive settlers than this article protrays. Why?

We have the obscene spectacle of an entity that seriously pretends to be a civilized state openly supporting assault and theft. We have the still more obscene spectacle of seeing ourselves in turn openly support that state. The thought that anyone could seriously support the existence of Israel and yet make a claim to be regarded as a decent human being is nauseating.

the question arises: where the "riot disposal methods" used against the settlers too?

If these Jewish settlers do believe and live the 10 commandments of God, why do they keep breaking commandments 6-10? Shame on these lawbreakers! They will never enter the heavenly Caanan!

#7 "If these Jewish settlers do believe and live the 10 commandments of God, why do they keep breaking commandments 6-10?" Interesting Sarah. My hunch is settler violence is "observant" but it's not the Ten Commandments they're observing, its the 613 mitzvot of Maimonides! Chilling as it is, hatred for Arabs is an essential mitzvah. As descendents of Amalek, who ambushed the Israelites in the wilderness during the Exodus (!), observant (whackjob) Jews are obliged to never forget, never forgive,

(contd.) and eternally hate, harrass and kill Arabs. All spelt out in mitzvot 598-600, if memory serves.

ian/australia - your comment about mitzvot sent me to google, and I found that the commands you refer to are 601, 602 and 607. Very interesting. But the really interesting one is 603 - not to destroy any fruit trees! Tell that to the settlers.
