    Do settlers teach their children to hate and kill Arabs?

    "Radical Jewish activists have staged politically motivated attacks against Palestinians and pro-peace Israelis before. In the early 1980s, for example, one group, known as the Jewish Underground, carried out a series of bombings against Arab mayors and shot three Arab students in the West Bank. And in 1995, an Israeli law student, Yigal Amir, assassinated Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, dealing a devastating blow to the peace process.

    "Israeli authorities have investigated and prosecuted those involved in these operations, and they have disrupted other attacks before they could occur. Yet they have failed to stem less dramatic violence, such as arson and assault.

    "According to UN investigations, in 2011, extremist settlers launched almost 300 attacks on Palestinian property, causing over 100 Palestinian casualties and destroying or damaging about 10,000 trees of Palestinian farmers.

    "The UN has also reported that violent incidents against Palestinians have proliferated, rising from 200 attacks in 2009 to over 400 in 2011. The spike in assaults on Palestinians by settlers has come despite the fact that over the same period, Palestinian terrorism fell dramatically."

    So, Georgie, can you show us where you have actually proven from a legitimate source that the Seattlers teach their children to kill Arabs. Meanwhile, we have seen the videos of cartoons made for Palestinian children where they teach them to kill the Jews. It would have been nice if Georgie would have told us that the rioting Muslims on the Temple Mount the other day were yelling that they were going to butcher the Jews. Maybe Georgie is hoping that this will happen.

    Did you notice settler terror attacks have increased at the same time Palestinian terrorism "fell dramatically?"

    I thought Palisimians didn't resort to terror. Peaceful Muslims, y'know.

    "Almost everything related to the Israeli-Palestinian dispute involves complex tradeoffs and sorting through opposing and often equally legitimate claims. But trying to stop settler violence is a clear moral and political imperative.

    "Israelis, who know the horrors of terrorism better than the citizens of any other democracy, should have a special understanding of the need to ensure that extremist violence does not ruin the lives of Palestinians and prevent Israel from making hard but necessary choices about its future.

    "Whether the conflict continues indefinitely or the peace talks soon resume, Israel must confront its homegrown terrorism problem.

    BTW, Muslims would not be rioting today if one-third of the population of Mandate Palestine had not inflicted a Jewish state upon an Arab majority in 1948. Arabs resist an illegal occupation and Jews enforce it.

    Are you still bemoaning the acts of 64 years ago that were legal? Nothing will ever change the events.

    "Recently, Israeli leaders have begun to recognize the problem. Following extremist vandalism against the IDF and mainstream settler leaders over the past year, some Israeli generals and government ministers began to label radical settlers as terrorists."

    Do you agree?

    When they harm soldiers they do acts of Terror. Also when harming Christians who are not involved in the violence against the settlers.
