NABLUS (Ma'an) -- A group of settlers attacked a Palestinian shepherd north of Ramallah on Friday and killed five of his sheep, a PA official said.

Settler-monitoring official Ghassan Daghlas told Ma'an that settlers from Aad settlement outpost attacked Kamal al-Nasan near Al-Mughayyir village, beating him severely.

The settlers then killed five of his sheep, Daghlas added.

Clashes broke out in the area between villagers and settlers, with Israeli forces arriving at the scene and firing tear gas and rubber bullets.

'Zionabee.' The horror movie. Sort of like 'Walking Dead,' only with Zionists. They attack livestock. You open up the barn, and there they are, blood dripping from their slavering jaws...

# Colin. As I read the the article I pictured the moronic settlers to be something just as you describe in your comment. You can be sure their soldier buddies were amused.

The settlers do not act in a vacuum. They well know they have trthe suport of teh Israeli government who winks at their behavior, since they both have the same goal - to make life as miserable as possible for the Palestinians so they will leave. The settlers know also that they have the tacit support of the US Congress who grovel in the mud at the feet of AiPAC

"Clashes broke out in the area between villagers and settlers, with Israeli forces arriving at the scene and firing tear gas and rubber bullets." Where's the usual end bit "...and arrested the shepherd."?

Isn't there something in the prohibitions listed in the Mitzvot against killing sheep? The settlers may have an unrestricted license from the Israeli government to do what they want to make life very difficult for the Palestinians, but their Old Testament tells them otherwise.

Saul, the first King, took pity on King Agag, whom he had defeated in battle, and spared his life (also his animals). But tribal deity Jehovah had commanded TOTAL genocide of the Amalekites, so in showing clemency, Saul defied G-d's will and was anathematized. (The prophet Samuel stepped in and hewed Agag to pieces personally. Saul went mad and killed himself.) But there's no mention of what happened to the sheep! So maybe, in their own way, these religious settlers from Aad,

(contd.) given they routinely refer to Palestinians as "Amalek", the eternal enemy, are just trying to make things right again with G-d. (That or they're nasty, lawless ferals gone psychotic on the frontier, see #1).

#6 "Isn't there something in the prohibitions listed in the Mitzvot against killing sheep?" Possibly not if they belong to Amalek. That might be covered by "utterly blot out the remembrance of Amalek from under heaven", which is pretty hard on the sheep, but hey, I don't make the rules.

#7 "Id love to snipe these scumbag settlers. Whats wrong with that ?." Nothing at all Robert, by sheep-killing scumbag settler moral standards.
