    ' At least 200 rioting Palestinian Arabs rampaged through Jewish vineyards and violently attacked Jewish residents at the Samarian community of Esh Kodesh on Saturday.

    Local residents said that after destroying much of the vineyards, the rioters came very close to entering the Jewish community. The local security team fired into the air to hold off the assault until Israeli army forces could arrive and disperse the rioters.

    By the end of the melee, 12 local Jews had been injured.

    Payback for settler attacks on Palestinians. And this wasn't anytime reason and headline is misleading.

    And the payback on settlers attacking palestinians was because Palestinians attacked settlers earlier. it's always the same crap over and over again.

    Settlers start the majority of riots between them because they feel they have the power of protection by the Israeli Army to go out and transgress.

    What about when Palestinian throwing stones at Israeli vihicles? In most times, they do it without any provocation, and then the settlers get pissed and start rioting. I'm not for any violence on any side because it doesn't do anything good for anyone, and then the soldiers have to go play the watching adult, which I think is very stupid, and they should just stop this violence at once.

    The unprovoked flaming/attacks by both sides are both condemnable. But the Israeli military should not be surprised when they roam in occupied territory to enforce their rule and go detain whoever they want my ransacking a town house by house to find someone they want, which is suspected but known. And they choose a time to flame things or to also try show deterrence in the West Bank. They literally do that.

    I thought the point was settlers. Please don't mix up settlers attack and soldiers' arrests. Those are two totally different things.

    Question.

    Is that "Jewish community" actually an illegal settlement in the West Bank?
